Of the Goſpel or the Good News of Salvation by Christ.

WHAT joyful tidings do I hear?
'Tis goſpel-grace ſalutes my ear;
And by that gentle found I find
This righteous God is mild and kind.

Jeſus: his only Son, diſplays
The wonders of his Father's grace:
The great ſalvation, long foretold
By Prophets to the Jews of old,
Is now in plainer words made known,
As to th' Apoſtles clearly ſhown;
By this bleſt meſſage brought from heav'n,
Pardon, and peace, and grace is giv'n.

Oh! may I know that Saviour dear,
Whom God has repreſented there!
And that eternal life receive,
Which he was ſent by God to give!
