514 20th P. M. 66, 77, 77.

The willing captive. JESUS, thou art our King! Christ the mighty one art thou;

Help for all on thee is laid : This the word; I claim it now;

Send me now the promised aid. 2 High on thy Father's throne,

O look with pity down! Help, O help, attend my call;

Captive lead captivity:
King of glory, Lord of all,

Christ, be Lord, be King to me!
3 I now would feel thy sway,
And only thee obey;
Thee my spirit pants to meet:

Tbis my one, my ceaseless prayer-
Make, o make my heart thy seat;

O set up thy kingdom there!
4 Triumph and reign in me,
And spread thy victory;
Hell, and death, and sin control;

Pride, and wrath, and every foe,
All subdue; through all my soul,

Conqu’ring and to conquer go. 515

The omnipotence of love.
GOD of eternal truth and grace,
Thy word, thy oath, to Abrah'm's race,

In me, O Lord, fulfil.
2 That mighty faith on me bestow,

Which cannot ask in vain;
Which holds, and will not let thee go,

Till I my suit obtain :

3 Till thou into my soul inspire

The perfect love unknown;
And tell my infinite desire, -

Whate'er thou wilt, be done.
4 On me the faith divine bestow,

Which doth the mountain move;
And all my spotless life shall show

The' omnipotence of love.

5th P. M. 4 lines 18.

Perfect peace.
PRINCE of peace, control my will;

Bid this struggling heart be still;
Bid my fears and doubtings cease, -
Hush my spirit into peace.
2 Thou hast bought me with thy blood,
Open'd wide the gate to God.
Peace I ask--but peace must be,
Lord, in being one with thee.
3 May thy will, not mine, be done;
May thy will and mine bé one:
Chase these doubtings from my heart;
Now thy perfect peace impart.
4 Saviour! at thy feet I fall;
Thou my life, my God, my all!
Let thy happy servant be

One forever more with thee!
Thy commandments are exceeding broad.
DEEPEN then w, helpless soul :

EEPEN the wound thy hands have mada
Till mercy, with its balmy aid,

Descend to make me whole.
2 The sharpness of thy two-edged sword
Enable me to endure;
Till bold to say,--My hall'wing Lord

Hath wrought a perfect curo.

3 I see the exceeding broad command,

Which all contains in one: Enlarge my heart to understand

The mystery unknown.
4 O that, with all thy saints, I might

By sweet experience prove
What is the length, and breadth, and height,

And depth, of perfect lovo. 518

Perfect freedom.
TF thon impart thyself to me,

No other good I need :
If thou, the Son, shalt make me free,

I shall be free indeed.
2 I cannot rest till in thy blood

Y full redemption bave;
But thou, through whom I come to God,

Canst to the utmost save.
3 From sin,-the guilt, the power, the pain,

Thou wilt redeem my soul : Lord, I believe--and not in vain;

My faith shall make me whole.
4 1, too, with thee, shall walk in white;

With all thy saints shall prove
The length and depth, and breadth and height,

Of everlasting love. 519

5th P. M. 4 lines 78,
The image of God.
FATHER of eternal grace,
Sweetly beaning in my face

May the world thine image see.
2 Happy only in thy love,

Poor, unfriended, or unknown:
Fix my thoughts on things above;

Stay my lieert on thee alone.

3 To thy gracious will resign'd

All tly will by me be done;
Give me, Lord, the perfect mind

of thy well-beloved Son,
4 Counting gain and glory loss,

May I tread the path he trod;
Die with Jesus on the cross-

Rise with him to live with God.

Glorious liberty.
O ,

Spirit of power within ;
And bring the glorious liberty

From sorrow, fear, and sin!
2 The seed of sin's disease,

Spirit of health, remove,
Spirit of finish'd holiness,

Spirit of perfect love.
3 Hasten the joyful day

Which shall my sins consume ; When old things shall be done away,

And all things new become.
4 I want the witness, Lord,

That all I do is right,
According to thy will and word, -

Well pleasing in thy sight.
5 I ask no higher state ;
Indulge me but in this,
And soon or later then translate

To my eterual bliss.

The perfect rest from sin.
JESUS, my Lord, I cry to thee,
I want a constant liberty,

A perfect rest froin sin.

2 Thy killing and thy quick’ning power,

Jesus, in me display;
The life of nature, from this hour,

My pride and passion slay.
3 Then, then, my utmost Saviour, raise

My soul with saints above,
To serve thy will, and spread thy praise,

And sing thy perfect love. 522

The exceeding great reward. HY name to me, thy nature grant!

This, only this be given! Nothing beside my God I want;

Nothing in earth or heaven.
2 Come, O my Saviour, come away;

Into my soul descend;
No longer from thy creature stay,

My Author and my End.
3 The bliss thou hast for me prepared,

No longer be delay'd;
Come, my exceeding great Reward,

For whom I first was made.
4 Come, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,

And seal me thine abode; Let all I am in thee be lost,

Let all be lost in God. 523

L. M.
Waiting for the promise.
O JESUS, full of truth

and grace ! I wait to see thy glorious face;

I seek redemption in thy blood.
2 Thou art the anchor of my hope;

The faithful promise I receive :
Surely thy death shall raise me up,

For thou hast died that I might live.
