5 Take the dear purchase of thy blood;
Thy blood shall wash us white as snow, Present us sanctified to God,
And perfected in love below.
That efficacious blood apply ;
And change, and throughly sanctify. 450 Praise—p. 194.] 4th P. M. 886, 886.
YOME, wisdom, power, and grace divine ! A happy, chosen band, Who fain would prove thine utmost will, And all thy righteous laws fulfil,
In love's benign command.
Thy loving self, inspire :
Baptized with heavenly fire.
To help each other on; Companions through the wilderness, To share a moment's pain, and seize
An everlasting crown.
The warmest charity,
The heart that was in thee.
Thy Spirit, Lord, supply ;
So shall we all thy love receive,
And to thy glory die. 451 Willowby-p. 191.] 4th P. M. 886, 886.
SAVIOUR, cast a gracious smile!
And mould it into love.
For ever drive it hence :
To child-like innocence.
Appears, by grace forgiven;
And want no other heaven.
As angels do above!
Thy sweet constraining love !
Through every hallow'd breast;
Our everlasting rest.
452 Eastburn-p. 189.] S. M.
Our hearts in Christian love ; The fellowship of kindred minds
Is like to that above.
We pour our ardent prayers ;
Our comforts and our cares. 3 We share our mutual woes;
Our mutual burdens bear; And often for each other flows
The sympathizing tear. 4 When we asunder part,
It gives us inward pain ;
And hope to meet again.
Our courage by the way; While each in expectation lives,
And longs to see the day.
And sin, we shall be free;
Through all eternity. 453 Consolation—p. 234.] 7th P. M. 8 lines 7s
TOLY Lamb, who thee confess,
Thee they ever keep in view,
2 While thou didst on earth appear.
454 Gilford-p. 86.] L. M. CESUS, thy wand'ring sheep behold!
See, Lord, with yearning bowels, see, Poor souls that cannot find the fold,
Till sought and gather'd in by thee.
2 Lost are they now, and scatter'd wide,
In pain, and weariness, and want : With no kind shepherd near, to guide
The sick, and spiritless, and faint. 3 Thou, only thou, the kind and good,
And sheep-redeeming Shepherd art ; Collect thy Hock, and give them food,
And pastors after thine own heart. 4 Give the pure word of general grace,
And great shall be the preachers' crowd : Preachers who all the sinful race
Point to the all-atoning blood. 5 Open their mouth, and utterance give,
Give them a trumpet-voice to call A world, who all may turn and live,
Through faith in Him who died for all. 6 In every messenger reveal
The grace they preach divinely free ; That each may by thy Spirit tell,
“ He died for all, who died for me." 7 A double portion from above
Of that all-quick’ning Spirit impart ; Shed forth thy universal love
In every faithful pastor's heart. 8 Thine only glory let them seek,
O let their hearts with love o'erflow ! Let them believe, and therefore speak,
And spread thy mercy's praise below. 455 Spilsby-p. 123.] S. M.
Thy needy servant's cry ;
And all our wants supply.
