111: BY Thee, O God, invited

by Mary Bowley (Mrs Peters) (1813-1856)

sung to Missionary midi score
by L. Mason (1792-1872)

1 BY Thee, O God, invited,
We look unto the Son,
In whom Thy soul delighted,
Who all Thy will hath done;
And by the one chief treasure
Thy bosom freely gave,
Thine own pure love we measure,
Thy willing mind to save.

2 O God of mercy --- Father!
The one unchanging claim,
The brightest hopes, we gather
From Christ's most precious name:
What always sounds so sweetly
In Thine unwearied ear,
Has freed our souls completely
From all our sinful fear.

3 The trembling sinner feareth
That God can ne'er forget,
But one full payment cleareth
His memory of all debt.
When nought beside could free us
Or set our souls at large,
Thy holy work, Lord Jesus,
Secured a full discharge.

4 No wrath God's heart retaineth
To us-ward who believe;
No dread in ours remaineth
As we His love receive;
Returning sons He kisses,
And with His robe invests;
His perfect love dismisses
All terror from our breasts.
