      HYMN 99

      C. M.

      Stones made children of Abraham. Matt. 3:9.

      Vain are the hopes that rebels place
      Upon their birth and blood,
      Descended from a pious race;
      Their fathers now with God.

      He from the caves of earth and hell
      Can take the hardest stones,
      And fill the house of Abram well
      With new-created sons.

      Such wondrous power doth he possess
      Who formed our mortal frame,
      Who called the world from emptiness,
      The world obeyed and came.


      Isaac Watts (1674-1748)
      Hymns and Spiritual Songs, 1707.
