21 And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears. 22 And all bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth. And they said, Is not this Joseph’s son? 23 And he said unto them, Ye will surely say unto me this proverb, Physician, heal thyself: whatsoever we have heard done in Capernaum, do also here in thy country. 24 And he said, Verily, I say unto you, No prophet is accepted in his own country. 25 But I tell you of a truth, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elias, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, when great famine was throughout all the land; 26 But unto none of them was Elias sent, save unto Sarepta, a city of Sidon, unto a woman that was a widow. 27 And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Eliseus the prophet; and none of them was cleansed, saving Naaman the Syrian. 28 And all they in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath, 29 And rose up, and thrust him out of the city, and led him unto the brow of the hill whereon their city was built, that they might cast him down headlong. 30 But he passing through the midst of them went his way,(KJV)

1. Lamb of God, we fall before Thee, 
Humbly trusting in Thy Cross. 
That alone be all our glory; 
All things else are only dross. 

2. Thee we own a perfect Savior, 
Only Source of all that’s good. 
Every grace and every favor 
Comes to us through Jesus’ blood. 

3. Jesus gives us true repentance 
By His Spirit sent from heaven; 
Whispers this transporting sentence, 
“Son, thy sins are all forgiven.” 

4. Faith He grants us to believe it, 
Grateful hearts His love to prize; 
Want we wisdom? He must give it, 
Hearing ears and seeing eyes. 

5. Jesus gives us pure affections, 
Wills to do what He requires, 
Makes us follow His directions, 
And what He commands, inspires. 

6. All our prayers and all our praises, 
Rightly offered in His name,– 
He that dictates them is Jesus; 
He that answers is the same.
