Grace and Favor

John Huss

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

Christ says: &ls;Come, all ye that labor,And receive My grace and favor';They who feel no want nor illNeed no physician's help nor skill.

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

Praise the Father, who from heavenUnto us such food hath givenAnd, to mend what we have done,Gave unto death His only Son.

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