72. Behold, What Wondrous Grace

1 Behold what wondrous grace
The Father hath bestowed
On sinners of a mortal race,
To call them sons of God!

2 Nor doth it yet appear
How great we must be made;
But when we see our Savior here,
We shall be like our Head.

3 If in my Father's love
I share a filial part,
Send down thy Spirit, like a dove,
To rest upon my heart.
