X. Of our Heavenly Father. 189. T. 22,


T. 22. OUR heav'nly Father is not known THOU hast the world so greatly lov'd, To us, but in the Son alone;

Father, that thou by mercy mov'd His mercy, love, and boundless grace

Didst give thy well-beloved Son, We see display'd in Jesus' face. By death for all our sins t'atone, 2 O God! how dreadful was thy name, 2 That he all who in him believe, Until the God-man Jesus came! Might in thy family receive; We cannot love nor honor thee, His sacrifice so great, so dear, Unless the Son hath made us free. Thou all-sufficient didst declare. 3 O love, no human tongue can tell ! 3 As children we are own’d by thee, O love divine, unsearchable !

Since Christ our Brother đeign'd to be; The Father gave his only Son We feel thy kind, paternal heart For guilty sinners to atone.

To us who have in him a part. 4 Can

ill distress
my heart,

4 The whole salvation of thy Son,
Since God with his own Son did part ? And all his merits make our own;
Whate'er I want can't be deny'd,
Since Christ for me was crucify'd.

Yea, grant us richly, for his sake,
Of heav'nly blessings to partake.

5 Thou art our Father and our God, 190. T. 14.

Since Christassum'd ourflesh and blood; BEHOLD what love the Father hath Therefore in thee our trust we place, On guilty men bestow'd,

And give thee never-ceasing praise. That we who children are of wrath, Should children be of God!

192. T. 341. 2 O how beyond expression great

THEE, O my God and King, His love in Christ doth shine! My Father, thee I sing, Tis like himself-th' eternal God! Hear well-pleas'd the joyous sound, Past knowledge! all divine !

Praise from earth and heav'n receive: 3 Behold! for fallen, guilty man,

Lost, I now in Christ am found, The Lord of glory dies;

Dead, by faith in Christ I live. Lays down his life, us to redeem, 2 Father, behold thy son, A precious sacrifice!

In Christ I am thine own. 4 Now doth our Lord, the Son of God, Stranger long to thee and rest, Who for us liv'd and dy'd,

See the prodigal is come : See of the travail of his soul,

Open wide thy arms and breast, And is well satisfy'd.

Take the weary wand'rer home. 5 Peace and good-will are now to man

3 Thine


observ'd from far, Most gloriously display'd,

Thy pity view'd me near : And life eternal we obtain

Me thy bowels yearn’d to see, From God, in Christ our Head. Me thy mercy ran to find, 6 O let us then repeat the theme,

Empty, poor, and void of thee, Which always sounds above;:

Hungry, sick, and faint, and blind. And ever sing, with joyful hearts, 4 Thou on my neck didst fall, The wonders of his love!

Thy kiss forgave me all:



T. 106.

Still the gracious words I hear, O grant that we may all our days

Words that made the Saviour mine, Live to exalt redeeming grace. “ Haste, for him the robe

prepare, His be righteousness divine!”

197.* T. 58. T. 580. O SANCTIFY us by thy truth we REJOICE, my soul, God cares for thee, pray, Trust to his word assuredly,

Christ's glorious brightness in our However things may go;

hearts display, Thy heav'nly Father, for Christ's sake, We to thy protection ourselves surrenOf thy concerns will notice take,

der, And mercy freely to thee show.

With filial confidence and love most tender,

O Lord our God. 2 Mygriefs & cares to thee well known, My God, I cast on thee alone,

In thee is all my trust; Since thou dost govern, I'll be still, DRAW me, O Father, to the Son, Into thy hands resign my will,

That he may draw me unto thee; And thank thee prostrate in the dust.

Thy Spirit render me his own, 3 I confidently do believe,

And rule without control in me; Me, thy poor child, thou wilt not leave, Shed in my heart thy love abroad, For thou my Father art:

And keep me in thy peace, O God! Fill thou my soul with love and faith, Thus I am rich in life and death;


T. 14. And from thy love nought shall me part.

FATHER of all, almighty Lord !

Our Father, and our God! 194.*

Since Jesus Christ th' eternal Word,

Assum'd our flesh and blood.
BE of good cheer in all your wants,
And stedfast on God's word rely;

2 Let all with love and filial fear He who the greatest favors grants,

Thy sacred name adore; The smallest never will deny:

O may thy kingdom soon appear, If God could give his Son for us,

And spread the world all o'er. What can he then to us refuse?

3 Help us thy pleasure to fulfil,

As done by heav'nly pow'rs; 195.* T. 132.

Accomplish in us all thy will,

And let that will be ours. WHEN Christ, who say'd us by his

His foll’wers call?d together, [blood, 4 Our souls and bodies feed, we pray, His farewell was, “ I go to God,

With food which thou see'st best; To mine, and to your Father;"

We ask our portion for the day, Therefore, believing in the Son,

And leave to thee the rest. With filial love we humbly own 5 Let mercy pardon all our crimes, Thee, God, our God and Father. Which justice must condemn;

As some have wrong'd us many times, 196.* T. 96.

And we would pardon them.
DEAR heav'nly Father, we adore 6 Let not temptation us befall,
And thank thee for the dreadful pain While here our race we run ;
Thy Son, when he our sorrows bore, But rescue and defend us all
For our redemption did sustain. From sin, and th' evil one.

T. 90.
