339. L. M. Watts. |Ye shall know them by their Fruits.|
1 So let our lips and lives express The holy gospel we profess: So let our works and virtues shine, To prove the doctrine all divine.
2 Thus shall we best proclaim abroad The honors of our Saviour, God, When the salvation reigns within. And grace subdues the power of sin.
3 Our flesh and sense must be denied, Passion and envy, lust and pride, While justice, temperance, truth and love, Our inward piety approve.
4 Religion bears our spirits up, While we expect that blessed hope, The bright appearance of the Lord, And faith stands leaning on his word.
