The Perfections of God
(Hymns 1-17)

The Holiness of God: Leviticus 19:2: “Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say unto them, Ye shall be holy: for I the LORD your God am holy.”; 1 Samuel 2:2: “There is none holy as the LORD: for there is none beside thee: neither is there any rock like our God.”; Hebrews 12:14: “Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord…”

R. Burnham

1 The Father is a holy God;
His holy Son he gave;
Who freely shed atoning blood,
A guilty world to save.

2 The Spirit brings the chosen race,
A holy Christ to view;
And while by faith they see his face,
Their souls grow holy too.

3 In holiness the saints delight,
While here on earth they dwell;
By faith they wrestle day and night,
More holiness to feel.

4 The Holy Spirit leads them on,
His holy truth to know;
Inscribes his laws in every son,
And works obedience too.

5 He makes them feel the cleansing grace,
That flows through Jesus’ blood;
Unites in love the holy race–

The new-born sons of God.
