     1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. 2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: 3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

     4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. 5 They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. 6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

     7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. 8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. 9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. 10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.(KJV)

1. The Gospel shows the Father’s grace, 
Who sent His Son to save our race, 
Proclaims how Jesus lived and died 
That man might thus be justified. 

2. It sets the Lamb before our eyes, 
Who made the atoning sacrifice, 
And calls the souls with guilt opprest 
To come and find eternal rest. 

3. It brings the Savior’s righteousness 
Our souls to robe in royal dress; 
From all our guilt it brings release 
And gives the troubled conscience peace. 

4. It is the power of God to save 
From sin and Satan and the grave; 
It works the faith, which firmly clings 
To all the treasures which it brings. 

5. It bears to all the tidings glad 
And bids their hearts no more be sad; 
The heavy-laden souls it cheers 
And banishes their guilty fears. 

6. May we in faith its tidings learn 
Nor thanklessly its blessings spurn; 
May we in faith its truth confess 
And praise the Lord our Righteousness!
