In thy wrath remember mercy ;
Mercy first and last be shown ;
Shake us till the curse remove;
Conquering all with sovereign love.
More confirms the faithful word ;
Must be suddenly restored :
From this ruin'd earth and skies;
See the new creation rise !
Pass the former things away :
With the dawn of endless day!
Throw this universe aside!
Now descend, and take thy bride!

LBD, dismiss usawith the blessing,
Let our faith and love increase :
Up to thee our hearts we raise :

O! I come with joy to do
Him in outward works pursue,
And serve his pleasure still. Faithful to my Lord's commands,
I still would choose the better part : Serve with careful Martha's hands
And loving Mary's heart. 2 Careful without care I am,
Nor feel my happy toil : Kept in peace by Jesus' name,
Supported by his smile ; Joyful thus my faith to show,
Í find his service my reward ; Every work I do below,
I do it to the Lord. 3 Thou, O Lord, in tender love,
Dost all my burdens bear!
And fix it ever there !
'Midst busy multitudes alone, Sweetly waiting at thy feet,
Till all thy will be done.
Before I hence remove !
Are all laid up above;
While yet my hands are here employ'd, Sees my soul the King of kings,
And freely talks with God.
5 O that all the art might know
Of living thus to thee!
And here thy glory see !
By thee to exercise their grace ;
And see thy glorious face ! 589 Pensford-p.265.] 11th P.M.76,76,77,76.
THOU, my God, art good and wise,
Continually adore !
That I may obedient prove ;
And my Redeemer love.
And every comfort here,
I thank with heart sincere :
Which thou hast already given ;
And for my hope of heaven.
And thy good Spirit impart !
With all my loving heart:
Him in heavenly glory see,
And ever prays for me.
And every grace bestow;
That I may with zealous care
Perform thy will below; Rooted in humility,
Still in every state resign'd, Plant, almighty Lord, in me
A meek and lowly mind. 5 Poor and vile in my own eyes,
With self-abasing shame Still I would myself despise,
And magnify thy name : Thee let every creature bless;
Praise alone to God be given ; God alone deserves the praise
Of all in earth and heaven. 590 Omnipotence—p. 168.] 1st P. M. 6 lines 8s.
That can in Jesus' name believe : Lord, I no more thy truth blaspheme,
Thy truth I lovingly receive ; I
can, I do believe in thee, All things are possible to me. 2 The most impossible of all
Is, that I e'er from sin should cease ;
Jesus, look to thy faithfulness !
The word of God can never fail ;
'Tis certain, though impossible : The thing impossible shall be ; All things are possible to me. 4 When thou the work of faith hast wrought,
I here shall in thine image shine,
Nor sin in deed, or word, or thought :
Let men exclaim and fiends repine, They cannot break the firm decree ; All things are possible to me. 5 Thy mouth, O Lord, hath spoke, hath sworn,
That I shall serve thee without fear,
Holy, and pure, and perfect here :
To Christ, the power of God in man,
When I in Christ am form'd again, And witness, from all sin set free,
All things are possible to me. 591 Spring Grove-p.165.] 1st P. M. 6 lines 8s. O
GOD of our forefathers, hear,
And make thy faithful mercies known; To thee, through Jesus, we draw near,
Thy suff'ring, well-beloved Son,
And spread before thy glorious eyes,
That precious bleeding Sacrifice,
Forgiveness in his blood, we have ;
Through him who died our souls to save, To sanctify us by his blood, And fill with all the life of God.
