John Rippon, A Selection of Hymns, 1792

The Privileges of the Sons of God

1. Blessed are the sons of God,
They are bought with Jesus' blood,
They are ransomed from the grave,
Life eternal they shall have,
With them numbered may we be,
Now and through eternity.

2. God did love them in his Son,
Long before the world begun;
They the seal of this receive
When on Jesus they believe.
With them numbered may we be,
Now and through eternity!

3. They are justified by grace,
They enjoy a solid peace;
All their sins are washed away,
They shall stand in God's great day,
With them numbered may we be,
Now and through eternity!

4. They produce the fruits of grace
In the works of righteousness!
Born of God, they hate all sin,
God's pure seed remains within.
With them numbered may we be,
Now and through eternity!

5. They have fellowship with God,
Through the mediator's blood;
One with God, through Jesus one,
Glory is in them begun.
With them numbered may we be,
Now and through eternity!

6. Though they suffer much on earth,
Strangers to the worldling's mirth,
Yet they have an inward joy,
Pleasures which can never cloy.
With them numbered may we be,
Now and through eternity!

7. They alone are truly blest,
Heirs of God, joint heirs with Christ;
They with love and peace are filled,
They are by his spirit sealed.
With them numbered may we be,
Now and through eternity!

 

George Whitefield, A Selection of Hymns, 1758

Privileges of God's Children

1. Blessed are the sons of God,
They are bought with Christ's own blood,
They are ransomed from the grave,
Life eternal they shall have.

2. God did love them in his Son,
Long before the world begun;
They the seal of this receive
When on Jesus they believe.

3. They are justified by grace,
They enjoy a solid peace;
All their sins are washed away,
They shall stand in God's great day.

4. They produce the fruits of grace
In the works of righteousness;
They are harmless, meek, and mild,
Holy, humble, undefiled.

5. They are lights upon the earth,
Children of a heavenly birth;
Born of God, they hate all sin,
God's pure seed remains within.

6. They have fellowship with God,
Through the mediator's blood;
One with God, with Jesus one,
Glory is in them begun.

7. Though they suffer much on earth,
Strangers to this world's mirth,
Yet they have an inward joy,
Pleasures which can never cloy.

8. They alone are truly blest,
Heirs of God, joint heirs with Christ;
With them numbered may we be,
Here and in eternity!
