Jesus freely gives us all

Jesus is the chiefest good;
He has saved us by His blood;
Let us value naught but him;
No one else deserves esteem.

Jesus, when stern Justice said,
"Man his life has forfeited,
"Vengeance follows by decree,"
Cried, "Inflict it all on me."

Jesus gives us life and peace,
Faith, and love, and holiness;
Every blessing, great or small,
Jesus freely gives us all.

Gadsby's Hymns attributes it to Hart.

Thanks, Brother Morris. Joseph Hart was blessed to write a lot of good hymns.
