Holiness. Lev. 19. 2; 1 Sam. 2. 2; Heb. 12. 14
R. Burnham C.M.
The Father is a holy God;
His holy Son he gave;
Who freely shed atoning blood,
A guilty world to save.
The Spirit brings the chosen race,
A holy Christ to view;
And while by faith they see his face,
Their souls grow holy too.
In holiness the saints delight,
While here on earth they dwell;
By faith they wrestle day and night,
More holiness to feel
The Holy Spirit leads them on,
His holy truth to know;
Inscribes his laws in every son,
And works obedience too.
He makes them feel the cleansing grace,
That flows through Jesus’ blood;
Unites in love the holy race –
The new-born sons of God.
