By thy passion on the tree,
Let all our griefs and troubles cease : O remember Calvary,
And bid us go in peace! 4 Never will we hence depart
Till thou our wants relieve ; Write forgiveness on our heart,
And all thine image give : Still our souls shall cry to thee,
Till perfected in holiness : O remember Calvary,
And bid us go in peace ! 229 Kendall—p. 27.] C. M.
OME, Saviour, let thy tokens prove,
by heavenly art,
As channels to convey thy love
To every faithful heart. 2 The living bread sent down from heaven
In us vouchsafe to be ;
And all may live by thee.
And let us drink thy blood, Till all our souls are fill'd below
With all the life of God.
But Jesus crucified,
Or leave his wounded side.
THAT doleful night before his death,
Did, almost with his dying breath,
This solemn feast ordain.
2 To keep the feast, Lord, we have met,
And to reinember thee :
he died for me !" 3 This sacred sign, thy suff’rings, Lord,
To our remembrance brings :
But think on nobler things. 4 O tune our tongues, and set in frame
Each heart that pants for thee, To sing
Hosanna to the Lamb," The Lamb that died for me! 231 St. Albans--p. 44.] C. M.
Yes wretched, hungera starving poor, Where mercy spreads her bounteous store
For every humble guest.
He calls, he bids you come :
For yet there still is room.
The blessings of his love ;
Of nobler joys above !
Before the eternal throne,
In ecstasies unknown. 5 And yet ten thousand thousand more
Are welcome still to come :
Approach, there yet is room.
232 Suffolk-p. 24.) C. M. THE King of heaven his table spreads,
And blessings crown the board ; Not paradise, with all its joys,
Could such delight afford. 2 Pardon and peace to dying men,
And endless life are given, Through the rich blood that Jesus shed,
To raise our souls to heaven. 3 Millions of souls, in glory now,
Were fed and feasted here ;
Around the board appear.
Nor weak excuses frame; Crowd to your places at the feast,
And bless the Founder's name. 233
Thacher-p. 136.] S. M.
The Son of God came down to die
That we might be forgiven! 2 His precious blood was shed,
His body bruised, for sin : Remember this in eating bread,
And this in drinking wine. 3 Approach his royal board,
In his rich garments clad ;
And every heart be glad.
The Son his flesh and blood :
St. Ann's—p. 2.] C. M.
And on the water brood :
The water and the blood.
To give his word a seal;
Exceeds the figure still.
And our request renew ;.
The work we have to do.
Pour'd out a double flood : By water we are purified,
And pardon’d by his blood. 2 Call’d from above, I rise,
And wash away my sin ;
Can make the foulest clean. 3 It runs divinely clear,
A fountain deep’and wide ; 'Twas open'd by the soldier's spear
In my Redeemer's side ! 236 Newry—p. 88.] L. M. OME, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
Honour the means ordain'd by thee; Make good our apostolic boast,
And own thy glorious ministry.
2 We now thy promised presence claim ;
Sent to disciple all mankind ; Sent to baptize into thy name;
We now thy promised presence find. 3 Father, in these reveal thy Son;
In these, for whom we seek thy face,
The inward, pure, baptizing grace. 4 Jesus, with us thou always art ;
Effectuate now the sacred sign; The gift unspeakable impart,
And bless the ordinance divine. 5 Eternal Spirit, descend from high,
Baptizer of our spirits thou ! The sacramental seal apply,
And witness with the water now ! 6 O that the souls baptized therein
May now thy truth and mercy feel; May rise and wash away their sin!
Come, Holy Ghost, their pardon seal !
REJOICING AND PRAISE.
237 Devonshire-p.284.] 13th P.M.10 10,11 11. O ;
Assist us to sing thy mercy and love ; So sweetly o’erflowing, so plenteous the store, Thou still art bestowing, and giving us more. 2 O God of our life, we hallow thy name; Our business and strife is thee to proclaim :
