Hymn 64

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: 6.6.8.6 Appears in 348 hymnals Scripture: 1 John 3:1 First Line: Behold what wondrous grace Lyrics: Behold what wondrous grace The Father has bestowed On sinners of a mortal race, To call them sons of God! 'Tis no surprising thing That we should be unknown; The Jewish world knew not their king, God's everlasting Son. Nor doth it yet appear How great we must be made; But when we see our Savior here, We shall be like our Head. A hope so much divine May trials well endure; May purge our souls from sense and sin, As Christ the Lord is pure. If in my Father's love I share a filial part, Send down thy Spirit like a dove, To rest upon my heart. We would no longer lie Like slaves beneath the throne; My faith shall Abba, Father, cry, And thou the kindred own.

Behold th' amazing gift of love

Meter: 8.6.8.6 Appears in 38 hymnals Scripture: 1 John 3:1-4 Lyrics: Behold th’ amazing gift of love the Father hath bestowed On us, the sinful sons of men, to call us sons of God! Concealed as yet this honour lies, by this dark world unknown, A world that knew not when he came, ev’n God’s eternal Son High is the rank we now possess; but higher we shall rise; Though what we shall hereafter be is hid from mortal eyes: Our souls, we know, when he appears, shall bear his image bright; For all his glory, full disclosed, shall open to our sight. A hope so great, and so divine, may trials well endure; And purge the soul from sense and sin, as Christ himself is pure.

Once in royal David's city

Author: Cecil Frances Alexander (1818-1895) Meter: 8.7.8.7.7.7 Appears in 381 hymnals Scripture: 1 John 3:2 Lyrics: 1 Once in royal David's city stood a lowly cattle shed, where a mother laid her Baby in a manger for his bed. Mary was that mother mild, Jesus Christ her little child. 2 He came down to earth from heaven who is God and Lord of all, and his shelter was a stable, and his cradle was a stall. With the poor and meek and lowly lived on earth our Saviour holy. 3 And our eyes at last shall see him, through his own redeeming love; for that Child so dear and helpless is our Lord in heaven above; and he leads his children on to the place where he is gone. 4 Not in that poor lowly stable, with the oxen standing by, we shall see him; but in heaven, set at God's right hand on high, where his children gather round, bright like stars, with glory crowned.

Christians the Sons of God

Author: Dr. S. Stennett Meter: 8.8.8.8 Appears in 84 hymnals Scripture: 1 John 3:1 First Line: Not all the nobles of the earth Lyrics: 1 Not all the nobles of the earth, Who boast the honors of their birth, Such real dignity can claim, As those who bear the christian name. 2 To them the privilege is giv'n To be the sons and heirs of heav'n; Sons of the God who reigns on high, And heirs of joys beyond the sky. 3 [On them, a happy chosen race, Their father pours his riches grace: To them his counsels he imparts, And stamps his image on their hearts. 4 Their infant-cries, their tender age, His pity and his love engage: He clasps them in his arms, and there Secures them with parental care.] 5 His will he makes them early know, And teaches their young feet to go; Whispers instruction to their minds, And on their hearts his precepts binds. 6 When, thro' temptation they rebel, His chast'ning rode ne makes them feel Then, with a father's tender heart, He sooths the pain, and heals the smart. 7 Their daily wants his hands supply, Their steps he guards with watchful eye, Leads them from earth to heaven above, And crowns them with eternal love. 8 If I've the honor, Lord, to be One of this num'rous family, On me the gracious gift bestow, To call thee Abba, father! too. 9 So may my conduct ever prove My filial piety and love! Whilst all my brethren clearly trace Their father's likeness in my face. Topics: Scripture Doctrines and Blessings Adoption
