2-6s & 4-7s. Acts xiv, 27.

1 THY messengers make known
What God by them hath done;
We who prayed for their success,
Thankful for their answered prayer,
Testify his faithfulness,
All his gracious works declare.

2 With joy we now approve
The truth of Jesu's love;
God, the universal God,
He the door hath opened wide,
Faith on heathens hath bestowed,
Washed them in his bleeding side,

3 Purged from the stains of sin,
By faith they enter in;
Purchased and redeemed of old,
Added to the chosen race,
Now received into the fold,
Heathens sing their Saviour's praise.

4 With them we lift our voice,
Partakers of their joys,
Conscious of the blood applied,
Freely all through faith forgiven:
Faith renews the justified,
Faith unfolds the gates of heaven.
