Praise for Preserving Grace. Jude 24, 25; Rom. 16. 27

I. Watts            S.M.

1
To God the only wise,
Our Saviour and our King,
Let all the saints below the skies
Their humble praises bring.

2
’Tis his almighty love,
His counsel and his care,
Preserves us safe from sin and death,
And every hurtful snare.

3
He will present our souls
Unblemished and complete
Before the glory of his face,
With joys divinely great.

4
Then all the chosen seed
Shall meet around the throne;
Shall bless the conduct of his grace,
And make his wonders known.

5
To our Redeemer, God,
Wisdom and power belongs;
Immortal crowns of majesty,
And everlasting songs.
