“Jesus the author and finisher of our faith.” Heb. 12. 2

W. Gadsby     148th

1
[Jesus the Author is
Of true and living faith;
This blessed grace he gives,
And saves our souls from death;
By faith in him we live, and view
The wonders God alone can do.]

2
[The principle of faith
From Jesus we receive;
And all the power it hath,
The Lord the Saviour gave;
’Tis Jesus gives us faith to view
The wonders God alone can do.]

3
’Tis Jesus gives us faith
To fight and overcome;
To vanquish hell and death,
And trust in him alone;
With sweet surprise to sit and view
The wonders God alone can do.

4
Nor death, nor sin, nor hell,
Against this faith can stand;
She eyes the Saviour well,
And Jesus holds her hand;
He gives her power to live and view
The wonders God alone can do.

5
Through every trying scene,
Down to the gates of death,
Jehovah will maintain
The life and power of faith;
For death can never keep from view
The wonders God alone can do.
