“Grace abounds still more in Jesus” by John Newton

“He will never leave me nor forsake me.

Well, when we have said all we can of the aboundings of sin in us, grace abounds still more in Jesus.

We cannot be so evil as He is good.

His power is a good match for our weakness; His riches for our poverty; His mercy for our misery.

We are vile in ourselves, but we are complete in Him. In ourselves we have cause to be abased, but in Him we may rejoice.

Blessed be God for Jesus Christ.”

–John Newton, The Works of John NewtonVolume 6 (Carlisle, PA: Banner of Truth, 2015), 6: 195.
