Hymns 6 & 7. Thou shalt call His name Jesus, &c. Matthew i. 21.

6. Salvation from our sins we found,
     Through Jesu's grace forgiven;
And Jesu's grace doth more abound,
     And makes us meet for heaven:
The hallowing virtue of His name
     Our spotless souls shall prove,
And to the utmost saved, proclaim
     Our Lord's almighty love.

7. Jesus from, not in, our sins
     Doth still His people save:
Him our Advocate and Prince,
     Our Priest and King we have;
Strength in Him with righteousness,
     With pardon purity, we gain,
Priests His praying Spirit possess,
     And kings for ever reign.
