On the Grace of God - Hymn Writer Isaac Watts

I have been spending time this week studying through the grace of God. It is important to recognize that apart from the grace of God, each of us is in an utter state of lostness. The grace of God is his love freely shown toward us, guilty sinners. Take some time read and reflect on the below hymn on the grace of God by Isaac Watts

But there’s a voice of princely grace
Sounds from God’s holy Word;
Ho! Ye poor captive sinners, come,
And trust upon the Lord.

My soul obeys the sovereign call,
And runs to this relief;
I would believe thy promise, Lord,
Oh, help my unbelief.

To the blest fountain of thy blood,
Incarnate God, I fly,
To wash my soul from scarlet stains,
And sins of deepest dye.

A guilty, weak, and helpless worm,
Into thy hands I fall;
Thou art the Lord, my righteousness,
My Savior, and my all.

~Isaac Watts
