The Lord proclaims his grace abroad!
"Behold, I change your hearts of stone;

Ezek. 36:25-28

The Lord proclaims his grace abroad!
"Behold, I change your hearts of stone;
Each shall renounce his idol-god,
And serve, henceforth, the Lord alone.

"My grace, a flowing stream, proceeds
To wash your filthiness away;
Ye shall abhor your former deeds,
And learn my statutes to obey.

"My truth the great design insures,
I give myself away to you;
You shall be mine, I will be yours,
Your God unalterably true.

"Yet not unsought, or unimplored,
The plenteous grace shall I confer;
No–your whole hearts shall seek the Lord,
I'll put a praying spirit there.

"From the first breath of life divine,
Down to the last expiring hour;
The gracious work shall all be mine,
Begun and ended in my power."

~ William Cowper
