“The gospel … the power of God unto salvation.” Rom. 1. 16

T. Kelly   8.7.4.

1
May the power that brings salvation,
Now exerted in the word,
By its quickening operation,
Life impart and joy afford!
Life to sinners,
Joy to those who know the Lord.

2
Hark, the voice of love, proclaiming
Mercy through a Saviour’s blood;
Vain the schemes of human framing,
This alone is owned of God;
’Tis the gospel
Points to heaven, and shows the road.
