2d P. M. 6 lines 88. The sanctifying and sealing Spirit. TATHER of everlasting grace,
Thy goodness and thy truth' we praise,
Spirit of life, and power, and love.
2 Send us the Spirit of thy Son,
To make us share the life divine :
And show and seal us ever thine.
Thy wisdom, truth, and power, and love;
And serve thee as thy hosts above :-
And praise thee in a bolder strain;
Thy everlasting love to man.
And learn to kiss the rod.
For thou art good and wise;
Nor one faint murmur rise.
And bid me wait serene,
And brighten all the scene.
In my Redeemer's name.
3d P. M. 4 68 & 2 8
Thee, Holy Ghost, we hail;
Whose comforts never fail;
Ourselves in Christ renew'd;
The family of God;
In gentle breathings down;
That no man take our crown;
4th P. M. 886, 886. The inward witness. THOH great mysterious God anknown,
led E'en from my infant days;, Mine inmost soul expose to view, And tell me if I ever knew
Thy justifying grace.
Thy drawings from above;
Thx sweet forgiving love.
3 Short of thy love I would not stop, A stranger to the Gospel hope,
The sense of sin forgiven;
That anle-juist of heaven.
In Jesus reconciled! And should I not with faith draw nigh, And boldly, Abba, Futher, cry,
And know myself thy child!
Huw merciful thou art;
Forever in my heart. 472
C. M. Delightful assurance. COV'REIGN of all the worlds on high,
Allow my humble claim;
Disdain & Father's name. 9 My Fatber, God! that gracious word
Dispels my guilty fear;
Could so delight my ear.
I share a filial part. 4 Cheer'd by that witness from op high,
Unwav'ring I believe;
Nor can the sign deceive.
The bliss of assurance.
Whó feel the joys of pardon'd sin; Should storms of wrath shake earth and sea,
Their minds have heaven and peace within. 2 The day glides sweetly o'er their heads,
Made up of innocence and love; And soft, and silent as the shades,
Their nightly minutes gently move. 8 Quick as their thoughts, their joys come on,
But fly not half so swift away: Their souls are ever bright as noon,
And calm as summer evenings be. 4 How oft they look to the heavenly hills,
Where groves of living, plensure grow; And longing hopes, and cheerful smiles,
Sit undisturbid upon their brow. 5. 'They scorn to seek earth's golden toys,
But spend the day, and share the night, Ip numb'ring o'er the richer joys
That heaven prepares for their delight. 474
3d P. M. 4 68 & 2 88
Shake off thy guilty fears;
In my behalf appears :
For me to intercede;
His precious blood, to plead;
