Where the world comes to study the Bible

Grace and Favor

Jesus Christ, our blessed Savior,
Turned away God’s wrath forever;
By His better grief and woe
He saved us from the evil foe.

Christ says: ‘Come, all ye that labor,
And receive My grace and favor’;
They who feel no want nor ill
Need no physician’s help nor skill.

As His pledge of love undying,
He this precious food supplying,
Gives His body with the bread
And with the wine the blood He shed.

Praise the Father, who from heaven
Unto us such food hath given
And, to mend what we have done,
Gave unto death His only Son.

If thy heart this truth professes
And thy mouth thy sin confesses,
His dear guest thou here shalt be,
And Christ Himself shall banquet thee.

John Huss
