Till thou thyself declare,
Regard a sinner's prayer: 2 A sinner welt'ring in his blood,
Unpurged and unforgiven: Far distant from the living God,
As far as bell from heaven.
To thee for help I call;
And raise me from my fall.
Thou only canst remove ;
Thine everlnsting love.
I hate the tyrant's chain;
Nor let me cry in vain.
The cov'nant blood apply;
And all my sins shall die. 315
The helpless all for succour came;
And found balvation in thy name :
blind, and poor; And, sick of sin, implore a cure.

3 My sin incearable disease,
Thou, Jesus, thou alone canst heal; Inspire me with thy power and peace,
And pardon on my conscience seal. 316
The inbred leprosy. TESUS, a word, a look from thee,
Can turn my heart, and make it clean; Purge out the inbred leprosy,
And save me from my bosom sin.
And stamp thine image on my heart.
And drive the evil spirit hence. 4 Be it according to thy word;
Accomplish now thy work in me; And let my soul, to health restored,
Devote its deathless powers to thee. 317
The virtue of thy Name.
Thy miracles repeat;
A leper at thy feet. 3 Loathsome, and vile, and self-abhorr’d,
1 sink beneath my sin; But, if thou wilt, a gracious word
of thine can make me clean.

THAT I could repent!
( that I could believe! Thou, by thy voice, the marble rend,
The rock in sunder cleave :
My soul and spirit part;
And break my stubborn heart. 2 Saviour, and Prince of peace!
The double grace bestow; Unloose the bands of wickedness,
And let the captive go:
And then the load remove :
The balm of pard'ning love. 319
L. M. The Physician needed. 0
THOU, whom once they flock'd to hear,
Thy words to hear, thy power to feel,Suffer & sinner to draw near,
And graciously receive me still. 2 They that be whole, thyself hast said,
No need of a physician have; But I am sick, and want thine aid,
And wait thine utmost power to save. 8 Thy power, and truth, and love divine,
The same from age to age endure : A word, a gracious word of thine,
The most invetrate plague can cure. 4 Helpless howe'er my spirit lies,
And long hath languish'd at the pool: A word of thine shall make it rise,
And speak me in a moment whole.

1st P. M. 6 lines 88,
My drooping soul exults to hear;
Is music in a sinner's ear.
3 And art thou not the Saviour still,
In every place and age the same! Hast thou forgot thy gracious skill,
Or lost the virtae of thy pame! 4 Faith in thy changeless name I have :
The good, the kind Physician, thou Art able now our souls to save,
Art willing to restore them now, 322
L. M. The healing power of Christ. THOUGH eighteen hundred years are past TH
Since Christ did in the flesh appear, His tender mercies ever last,
And still his bealing power is here. 2 Would he the body's health restore,
And not regard the sin-sick soul! The sin-sick soul he loves much more,
And surely he will make it whole. 3 All my disease, my every sin,
To thee, O Jesus, I confess:
And perfect it in holiness.
New, Saviour, now, on me bestow; And purge my conscience with thy blood,
And wash my nature white as snow, 323
OW sad our state by nature is;
Our sin, how deep it stains ;
Fast in his slavish cbains,
And trust a faithful Lord.
