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 Kendallp. 27.] C. M.

OME, Saviour, let thy tokens prove,

COMitted

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 ;
Thy flesh for all the world is given,

And all may live by thee.
3 Now, Lord, on us thy flesh bestow,

And let us drink thy blood, Till all our souls are fill'd below

With all the life of God.
4 Determined nothing else to know

But Jesus crucified,
I will not from my Jesus go,

Or leave his wounded side.
230 Walsal-p. 70.] C. M.

THAT doleful night before his death,

Did, almost with his dying breath,

This solemn feast ordain.

[ocr errors]

2 To keep the feast, Lord, we have met,

And to reinember thee :
Help each poor trembler to repeat,
For
me,

he died for me !" 3 This sacred sign, thy suff’rings, Lord,

To our remembrance brings :
We eat and drink around thy board,

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.
2 See, Jesus stands with open arms;

He calls, he bids you come :
O stay not back, though fear alarms !

For yet there still is room.
3 O come, and with his children taste

The blessings of his love ;
While hope attends the sweet repast

Of nobler joys above !
4 There, with united heart and voice,

Before the eternal throne,
Ten thousand thousand souls rejoice,

In ecstasies unknown. 5 And yet ten thousand thousand more

Are welcome still to come :
Ye happy souls, the grace adore ;

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 ;
And millions more still on the way,

Around the board appear.
4 All things are ready, come away,

Nor weak excuses frame; Crowd to your places at the feast,

And bless the Founder's name. 233

LORY to God ,

[ocr errors]

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 ;
Join every tongue to praise the Lord,

And every heart be glad.
4 The Father gives the Son ;

The Son his flesh and blood :
The Spirit applies, and faith puts on
The righteousness of God.

St. Ann's—p. 2.] C. M.
IELESTIAL Dove, descend from high,

And on the water brood :
Come, with thy quick’ning power apply

The water and the blood.
2 I love the Lord that stoops so low

To give his word a seal;
But the rich grace his hands bestow

Exceeds the figure still.
3 Almighty God, for thee we call,

And our request renew ;.
Accept in Christ, and bless withal,

The work we have to do.
235 Atholp. 132.] S. M.
My

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 ;
The stream to which my spirit flies

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 Newryp. 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 hidden mystery make known,

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 !

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 :
