“Holiness becometh thine house, O Lord.” Ps. 93. 5
(Author Unknown) L.M.
Shall the believer dare to sin,
Because his sin has been forgiven?
Shall sovereign grace which makes him clean,
Be thus abused? Forbid it, Heaven!
Hard is that heart which does not melt,
And blind is that unholy eye,
Which sees no evil in the guilt,
For which the Saviour came to die.
O blessed Jesus, ne’er may those
For whom thy precious blood was shed,
Give cause of triumph to thy foes,
But shrink from sin with holy dread.
