1 Come, let us use the grace divine,
And all with one accord,
In a perpetual covenant join
Ourselves to Christ the Lord.
2 Give up ourselves through Jesu's power,
His name to glorify;
And promise in this sacred hour,
For God to live and die.
3 The covenant we this moment make
Be ever kept in mind;
We will no more our God forsake,
Or cast these words behind.
4 We never will throw off the fear.
Who hears our solemn vow;
And if thou art well pleased to hear,
Come down and meet us now!
5 Thee, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
let all our hearts receive;
Present with the celestial host,
The peaceful answer give.
6 To each covenant the blood apply
Which takes our sins away;
And register our names on high,
And keep us to that day.

Come, let us use the grace divine. C. Wesley. [Confirmation.] First published in his Short Hymns, &c, 1762, vol. ii., No. 1242, in 3 stanzas of 8 lines, and based upon Jer. 1. 5 (Poetical Works, 1868-72, vol. x. p. 40). In 1780 it was included in the Wesleyan Hymn Book, No. 518, from whence it has passed into other collections of the Methodist bodies. It was also given by Montgomery in his Christian Psalmist, 1825, and is found in some Nonconformist collections. The form in which it is usually given in the Church of England hymnals appeared in Bickersteth's Christian Psalmody, 1833, as, “Come, let us seek the grace of God," as in Snepp's Songs of Grace & Glory, 1872
