What shall i give back to my God for all his mercy’s store?
I’ll take the gifts he hath bestowed,and humbly ask for more.
The sacred cup of saving grace i will with thanks recieve,and all his promises embrace,and to His glory live.
My vows i will to His great name before His people pay,and all i have,and all i am,upon his altar lay.
Thy lawful servant,Lord,i owe to thee whate’er is mine,born in thy family below,and by redemption thine.
Thy hands created me,thy hands from sin have set me free,the mercy that hath loosed my bands hath bound me fast to thee.
The God i will proclaim,offer the sacrifice of praise,and call upon his name.
Praise Him,ye saints,the God of love,who hath my sins forgiven,till,gathered to the church above,we sing the songs of heaven.
One of the amazing hymns that i love most.
Charles Wesley ( 1707-1788)

Will Dr. Cobb’s merciless instinct track down the murderer?
The clock is ticking…
