3 Bowed down beneath a load of sin, By Satan sorely pressed,

By war without, and fears within,
I come to thee for rest.

4 Be thou my shield and hiding-place;
That, sheltered near thy side,
I may my fierce accuser face,
And tell him, thou hast died!

5 O wondrous love! to bleed and die,
To bear the cross and shame,
That guilty sinners, such as I,
Might plead thy gracious Name.

John Newton, 1779

OME, my soul, thy suit prepare; Jesus loves to answer prayer; He himself has bid thee pray, Therefore will not say thee, Nay.

2 Thou art coming to a King:

Large petitions with thee bring;
For his grace and power are such,
None can ever ask too much.

3 With my burden I begin:

Lord, remove this load of sin;
Let thy blood, for sinners spilt,
Set my conscience free from guilt.

4 Lord, I come to thee for rest;
Take possession of my breast;
There thy blood-bought right maintain,
And without a rival reign.

5 While I am a pilgrim here,
Let thy love my spirit cheer;
As my guide, my guard, my friend,
Lead me to my journey's end.

6 Show me what I have to do;

Every hour my strength renew;
Let me live a life of faith;
Let me die thy people's death.

John Newton, 1779

O

2 Return, O holy Dove, return,
Sweet messenger of rest;

I hate the sins that made thee mourn,
And drove thee from my breast.

3 The dearest idol I have known, Whate'er that idol be,

Help me to tear it from thy throne.
And worship only thee.

C.M.

4 So shall my walk be close with God,
Calm and serene my frame;
So purer light shall mark the road
That leads me to the Lamb.

Weaned from the mother's breast,
By no subtleties beguiled,
On thy faithful word I rest.

With our assembled powers,

In strong and beauteous order ranged,
Like her united towers.

3 0 ever pray for Salem's peace;
For they shall prosperous be,
Thou holy city of our God,
Who bear true love to thee.

A constant guest be found;

With plenty and prosperity
Thy palaces be crowned.

6 But most of all I'll seek thy good,
And ever wish thee well,
For Sion and the temple's sake,
Where God vouchsafes to dwell.

I'll pray, May peace in Salem's towers
A constant guest appear.

L.M.

COME, loud anthems let us sing, Loud thanks to our almighty King, And high our grateful voices raise, As our Salvation's Rock we praise.

2 Into his presence let us haste

To thank him for his favours past,
To him address, in joyful songs,
The praise that to his Name belongs.

3 For God the Lord, enthroned in state,
Is with unrivaled glory great;
The depths of earth are in his hand,
Her secret wealth at his command.

O let us to his courts repair,
And bow with adoration there;
Low on our knees with reverence fall,
And on the Lord our Maker call.

Tate and Brady, 1698, alt.; Psalm 98
