“ALL THINGS ARE YOURS”
1. Corinthians 3, 21.
Called by grace, the sinner see,
Rich, though sunk in poverty;
Rich in faith that God has given,
He’s a legal heir of heaven.
All the searchless riches stored
In the person of our LordÂ—
Wisdom, truth, and glorious grace,
Everlasting love and peace.
All things that the cross procured,
Stands eternally secured;
All are yours, ye heirs of bliss,
Cancelled sins, and righteousness.
All the promises we trace
In the records of His grace :
Richer far than mines of gold,
Half their wealth was never told.
Victory o’er the king of dread,
Strength the gloomy vale to tread;
Faith within the veil to see,
Jesus entered there for thee.
All the bliss that seraphs know,
All the love that God can show,
All are yours, ye favoured few,
Mansions, thrones and kingdoms too.
J. Kent, 1803 (Denham’s Selection 640)
