Firmly grounded upon thee?
Never by thy work abide ?
Never in thy wounds reside ?
2 O how wav’ring is my mind!
Toss'd about with every wind !
O how quickly doth my heart
From the living God depart !
3 Jesus, let my nature feel
Thou art God unchangeable :
JAH, JEHOVAH, great I AM,
Speak into my soul thy name.
4 Grant that every moment I
May believe and feel thee nigh ;
Steadfastly behold thy face,
'Stablish'd with abiding grace.
5 Plant, and root, and fix in me
All the mind that was in thee;
Settled peace I then shall find ;
Jesus' is a quiet mind.
6 Anger I no more shall feel,
Always even, always still ;
Meekly on my God reclined ;
Jesus' is a gentle mind.
7 I shall suffer and fulfil
All my Father's gracious will;
Be in all alike resign'd;
Jesus' is a patient mind.
8 When 'tis deeply rooted here,
Perfect love shall cast out fear;
Fear doth servile spirits bind;
Jesus' is a noble mind.
9 When I feel it fix'd within,
I shall have no power to sin ;

[ocr errors]

How shall sin an entrance find ?
Jesus' is a spotless mind.
10 I shall nothing know beside
Jesus, and him crucified :
Perfectly to him be join'd:
Jesus' is a loving mind.
11 I shall triumph evermore,
Gratefully my God adore ;
God so good, so true, so kind;
Jesus' is a thankful mind.
12 Lowly, loving, meek, and pure,
I shall to the end endure;
Be no more to sin inclined :
Jesus' is a constant mind.
13 I shall fully be restored
To the image of my Lord;
Witnessing to all mankind

Jesus' is a perfect mind. 597 Broadmeadp. 150.] 1st P. M. 6 lines 8s.

ESUS, the gift divine I know,

JE

That living water now bestow,

Thy Spirit and thyself on me :
Thou, Lord, of life the Fountain art,
Now let me find thee in my heart !
2 Thee let me drink, and thirst no more

For drops of finite happiness :
Spring up, o Well, in heavenly power,

In streams of pure, perennial peace;
In joy that none can take away,
In life, which shall for ever stay.
3 Father, on me the grace bestow,

Unblameable before thy sight,

Whence all the streams of mercy flow;

Mercy thy own supreme delight,
To me, for Jesus' sake impart,
And plant thy nature in my heart.
4 Thy mind throughout my life be shown,

While list’ning to the wretches' cry,
The widows' and the orphans' groan,

On mercy's wings I swiftly fly
The poor and helpless to relieve,
My life, my all, for them to give.
5 Thus may I show the Spirit within,
Which

purges me from every stain ;
Unspotted from the world and sin,

My faith's integrity maintain ;
The truth of my religion prove,

By perfect purity and love, 598 Euphrates-p.274.] 12th P.M.76,76,78,76.

VATHER, see this living clod,

of ?

See my soul, the breath of God,

Doth after God aspire ;
Let it still to heaven ascend,

Till I my principle rejoin ;
Blended with my glorious end,

And lost in love divine !
1 2 Lord, if thou from me hast broke

The power of outward sin,
Burst this Babylonish yoke,

And make me free within :
Bid my inbred sin depart,

And I thy utmost word shall prove,
Upright both in life and heart,

And perfected in love.
3 God of all-sufficient grace,

My God in Christ thou art :

Bid me walk before thy face,

Till I am pure in heart :
Till transform’d by faith divine,

I gain that perfect love unknown,
Bright in all thine image shine,

By putting on thy Son.
4 Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,

In council join again,
To restore thine image, lost

By frail, apostate man ;
O might I thy form express,

Through faith begotten from above,
Stamp'd with real holiness,

And fill’d with perfect love!
599 Wayland-p. 82.] L. M.
HE voice that speaks Jehovah near,

, to : O might it now my Lord proclaim, And fill my soul with holy shame! 2 Ashamed I must for ever be, Ashamed the God of love to see, If saints and prophets hide their face, And angels tremble while they gaze! 600 Ledburyp. 151.] Ist P. M. 6 lines 8s.

AY to thy hand, O God of grace!

is

1

See at thy feet, of all the race

The chief, the vilest sinner see;
And let me all thy mercy prove,
Thine utmost miracle of love.
2 Speak, and a holy thing and clean

Shall strangely be brought out of me;
My Ethiop soul shall change her skin,

Redeem'd from all iniquity ;

I, even I, shall then proclaim
The wonders wrought by Jesus' name.
3 Thee I shall then for ever praise,

In spirit and in truth adore :
While all I am declares thy grace,

And born of God, I sin no more :
Thy pure and heavenly nature share,
And fruit unto perfection bear.

ON THE DEATH OF A WIDOW.

601 Auburn—p. 260.] 10th P. M. 8 lines 8s.

LIVE glory to Jesus our Head,

throne ;

A widow, a widow indeed,

A mother in Israel, is gone!
The winter of trouble is past;

The storms of affliction are o'er ;
Her struggle is ended at last,

And sorrow and death are no more.
2 The soul has o'ertaken her mate,

And caught him again in the sky:
Advanced to her holy estate,

And pleasure that never shall die :
Where glorified spirits, by sight,

Converse in their happy abode ;
As stars in the firmament bright,

And pure as the angels of God.
3 Behold! what a triumph is there,

Where all in his praises agree;
His beautiful character bear,

And shine with the glory they see!
The glory of God and the Lamb,

(While all in the ecstasy join,)
Darts into their spiritual frame,

And gives the enjoyment divine.
