Free Grace in Revealing Christ. Matt. 11. 25, 26

I. Watts                            C.M.

Jesus, the Man of constant grief,
A mourner all his days;
His spirit once rejoiced aloud,
And turned his joy to praise:

“Father, I thank thy wondrous love,
That has revealed thy Son
To men unlearnèd; and to babes
Has made the gospel known.

“The mysteries of redeeming grace
Are hidden from the wise;
While pride and carnal reasonings join
To swell and blind their eyes.”

Thus does the Lord of heaven and earth
His great decrees fulfil,
And order all his works of grace
By his own sovereign will.
