Privileges of Adoption. Rom. 3. 24

1
Blessèd are the sons of God,
They are bought with Jesus’ blood;
They are ransomed from the grave
Life eternal they shall have.

2
God did love them in his Son
Long before the world began;
They the seal of this receive,
When in Jesus they believe.

3
They are justified by grace;
They enjoy a solid peace;
All their sins are washed away;
They shall stand in God’s great day!

4
[They produce the fruits of grace,
Clothed in Jesus’ righteousness;
Born of God, they hate all sin;
God’s pure seed remains within!]

5
They have fellowship with God,
Through the Mediator’s blood;
One with God, through Jesus one,
Glory is in them begun!

6
Though they suffer much on earth,
Strangers to the worldling’s mirth,
Yet they have an inward joy,
Pleasures which can never cloy.
