4 Sin throws in vain its pointed dart,
For here a sovereign cure is found, A cordial for the fainting heart,
A balm for every painful wound.
HYMN 176. P. M. [#]
Friend kinder than a Brother. 1 ONE there is, above all others,
Well deserves the name of Friend;
They who once his kindness prove,
Find it everlasting love.
Could, or would have shed his blood ?
This is boundless love indeed!
Jesus is a Friend in need.
Friend of sinners was his name ;
Still he calls them brethren, friends,
And to all their wants attends. 4 O, for grace, our hearts to soften!
Teach us, Lord, like him to love :
But, when home our souls are brought,
HYMN 177. C. M. [#]
Christ a chosen Servant. 1 Thus saith the Lord who built the heavens,
And bade the planets roll,
And formed the human soul,-
Exalted in my might;
I place supreme delight.
My spirit shall descend;
To earth's remotest end.
of his zeal and power Shall never know decline, Till foreign lands and distant isles
Receive the law divine.
HYMN 178. L. M. [#]
First Elect of God.
By him the great salvation came :
Hath God imparted through his Son. 2 God chose him, ere the world began,
To save from sin rebellious man;
conquer nations by his love.
3 Jehovah did his Son ordain
His first Elect, by grace to reign;
And reconcile a world to God. 4 In thine Elect, O God, we see
Our life and immortality;
HYMN 179. S. M. [#]
Mediator of a better Covenant.
In all things ordered sure,
Forever shall endure.
And who shall let thy hand?
By power divine must stand.
The Gentiles trust in thee;
The great salvation see.
Þemand the grateful song;
And heaven the strain prolong.
HYMN 180. 75. M. [#]
King of Salem.
Hear thy wounded servants plead;
Calm the tempest of the mind. 2 May the King of Salem now
Cause each stubborn heart to bow;
Bringing peace, and hope, and joy. 3 Lord, no tithes to thee we give;
Life, and strength, and all we have,
O receive us as thine own
Fit us for our heavenly home,
HYMN 181. L. M. [#]
Christ the Pattern.
What were his works, from day to day,
Which spread salvation through our race? 2 Teach us, O Lord, to keep in view
Thy pattern, and thy steps pursue ;
HYMN 182. 7s. M. [#]
Characters of Christ.
Spread thy boundless love abroad :
Fill the world with truth and grace. 2 Sun of Righteousness, arise ;
Send thy light around the skies :
Feed our souls with living bread.
Raise to life the sinking mind :
Grace to every soul impart.
Cause the world therein to look :
L. M. [#]
Characters of Christ. 1 A KING shall reign in righteousness, And all the kindred nations bless
; He's King of Salem, King of peace,
Nor shall his spreading kingdom cease. 2 In him the naked soul shall find
A hiding-place from chilling wind ;
