(Tune: Jesus, The Very Thought Of Thee #58)


      Our God, in cov'nant mercy, gives

      "The precious things of heav'n"

      To all His loved and chosen ones,

      The heirs of grace and heav'n.


      Salvation's sure foundation Stone

      Is laid n heav'n for us:

      Unto you therefore which believe

      Christ Jesus is precious.


      The precious blood of Christ was shed,

      Redeeming us from sin:

      Applied by grace, it's precious blood,

      We've felt its pow'r within.


      Like precious faith with God's elect,

      We have by grace received:

      The Spirit's pow'r, revealing Christ,

      Called us, and we believed.


      The precious promises of God

      Are given unto us:

      In Christ the promises are sure,

      Sure as God's truthfulness.


      Even the trial of our faith

      Is a most precious thing:

      It shall be found a cause for praise

            To honor Christ our King.
