Theme: Assurance;Forgiveness;Jesus Christ: Blood;Justifying Grace: Assurance
1. How can we sinners know our sins on earth forgiven? How can my gracious Savior show my name inscribed in heaven? 2. What we have felt and seen, with confidence we tell, and publish to the ends of earth the signs infallible. 3. We who in Christ believe that he for us hath died, we all his unknown peace receive and feel his blood applied. 4. We by his Spirit prove and know the things of God, the things which freely of his love he hath on us bestowed. 5. The meek and lowly heart that in our Savior was, to us that Spirit doth impart and signs us with his cross. 6. Our nature's turned, our mind transformed in all its powers, and both the witnesses are joined, the Spirit of God with ours.
