8116. The People Of God

1 The people of God, Jehovah we praise
As bought by His blood, and saved by His grace;
Who daily delivers and ransoms His own,
And waters with rivers of life from His throne.

2 Redeemed from the foe,we Jesus proclaim,
And triumph to know the power of His name.
Preserved from all evil, through God the most high,
The world, and the devil, and sin we defy.

3 Much more than our sin His grace doth abound;
His kingdom within our bosom is found:
His blood’s application the blessing imparts,
The inward salvation, and hallows our hearts.

4 Triumphing we go, to triumph again,
Till death, the last foe, by Jesus is slain;
His death shall release us, called out of our graves,
To witness that Jesus eternally saves.
