Words: Isaac Watts
v. 1--8. Part 1. Waiting for an answer to prayer; or, Deliverance begun and completed.
1 Lord, thou hast called thy grace to mind, Thou hast reversed our heavy doom; So God forgave when Isr'el sinned, And brought his wand'ring captives home.
2 Thou hast begun to set us free, And made thy fiercest wrath abate; Now let our hearts be turned to thee, And thy salvation be complete.
3 Revive our dying graces, Lord, And let thy saints in thee rejoice; Make known thy truth, fulfill thy word; We wait for praise to tune our voice.
4 We wait to hear what God will say; He'll speak, and give his people peace; But let them run no more astray, Lest his returning wrath increase.
v. 9,&c. PART 2. Salvation by Christ.
1 Salvation is for ever nigh The souls that fear and trust the Lord And grace descending from on high Fresh hopes of glory shall afford.
2 Mercy and truth on earth are met, Since Christ the Lord came down from heav'n By his obedience so complete, Justice is pleased, and peace is giv'n.
3 Now truth and honor shall abound, Religion dwell on earth again, And heav'nly influence bless the ground In our Redeemer's gentle reign.
