“Holiness becometh thine house, O Lord.” Ps. 93. 5

(Author Unknown)              L.M.

    1
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!

2
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.

3
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.
