The Psalms And Hymns Of Isaac Watts by Isaac Watts

HYMN 138 The power of the gospel.

L. M.

The power of the gospel.

This is the word of truth and love,

Sent to the nations from above;

Jehovah here resolves to show

What his almighty grace can do.

This remedy did wisdom find

To heal diseases of the mind;

This sovereign balm, whose virtues can

Restore the ruined creature, man.

The gospel bids the dead revive,

Sinners obey the voice, and live;

Dry bones are raised and clothed afresh,

And hearts of stone are turned to flesh.

[Where Satan reigned in shades of night

The gospel strikes a heav'nly light;

Our lusts its wondrous power controls,

And calms the rage of angry souls.]

[Lions and beasts of savage name

Put on the nature of the lamb,

While the wild world esteem it strange,

Gaze, and admire, and hate the change.]

May but this grace my soul renew,

Let sinners gaze and hate me too!

The word that saves me does engage

A sure defence from all their rage.
