1 John 3:1-3, Gal 4:6 - Our Adoption
Words: Isaac Watts, "Hymns and Spiritual Songs"
1 Behold what wondrous grace The Father has bestowed On sinners of a mortal race, To call them sons of God! 2 'Tis no surprising thing That we should be unknown; The Jewish world knew not their King, God's everlasting Son. 3 Nor doth it yet appear How great we must be made; But when we see our Savior here, We shall be like our head. 4 A hope so much divine May trials well endure; May purge our souls from sense and sin, As Christ the Lord is pure. 5 If in my Father's love I share a filial part, Send down thy Spirit like a dove, To rest upon my heart. 6 We would no longer lie Like slaves beneath the throne; My faith shall Abba, Father, cry, And thou the kindred own.
