The Saint’s Inheritance. 2 Cor 7. 1; 1 Pet. 1. 4

J. Hart    8.3.

1
Perfect holiness of spirit,
Saints above, full of love,
With the Lamb inherit.

2
This inheritance, believer,
Faith alone makes thy own,
Safe and sure for ever.

3
True, ’twas thine from everlasting,
But the bliss of it is
Known to thee by tasting.

4
Though thou here receive but little;
Scarce enough for the proof
Of thy proper title;

5
Urge thy claim through all unfitness;
Sue it out, spurning doubt;
The Holy Ghost’s thy witness.

6
Cite the will of his own sealing;
Title good, signed with blood,
Valid and unfailing.

7
When thy title thou discernest,
Humbly then sue again
For continual earnest
