Christ My Song - 1129

Is not this a brand (Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Is not this a brand.

"Is not this a brand plucked out of the fire?" (Zechariah 3,2)

1. Is not this a brand,
  rescued from the fire,
by a mighty hand?
  Look ye and admire.
'Tis a sight for you,
  merit who have none.
See what grace can do;
  see what grace has done.

2. Such a brand am I:
  rescued from the flame;
and to death how nigh,
  when the Saviour came!
When he came to save:
  came from heav'n above;
all my sins forgave,
  and revealed his love.

3. Great the debt I owe,
  more than tongue can tell;
saved from wrath and woe;
  saved from lowest hell.
Lord, it is to thee
  all this debt is due.
Let me thankful be;
  full of love, and true.

4. Keep me by thy pow'r,
  lest I fall away;
keep me ev'ry hour,
  lest my footsteps stray.
Keep me to the end,
  till the strife is past:
let me then ascend,
  and rejoice at last.

Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 625.
