"By Thee, O God, invited" by Mary Bowley

By Thee, O God, invited, .......Matt 3:17; Is 42:1; Jn 1:18, 8:29;
We look unto the Son, ..........Heb 10:7; 1 Jn 4:9-10
In whom Thy heart 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.

O God of mercy—Father! ..............2 Cor 1:3; 1 Jn 4:18
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 guilt and fear.

The trembling sinner feareth ............Hebrews 8:12
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,
The death of God's Beloved
Secured a full discharge.

No wrath God's heart retaineth ..............Rom 5:9; 1 Jn 4:18; Luke 15:20-24
To usward 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.
