8 Satan, with all his arts, no more

Me from the Gospel hope can move;
I shall receive the gracious power,

And find the pearl of perfect love.
4 My flesh, which cries, ---It cannot be,

Shall silence keep before the Lord;
And earth, and hell, and sin shall flee

At Jesus' everlasting word.
524

C. M.
Entire purification.
FOREVER here my rest shall be,

Close to thy bleeding side;
This all my hope, and all my plea,

For me the Saviour died.
2 My dying Saviour, and my God,

Fountain for guilt and sin,
Sprinkle me ever with thy blood,

And cleanse and keep me clean.
3 Wash me, and make me thus thine own;

Wash me, and mine thou art;
Wash me, but not my feet alone,

My hands, my head, my heart.
4 The' atonement of thy blood apply,

Till faith to sight improve;
Till hope in full fruition die,

And all my soul be love.
525

6th P. M, 6 lines 78.
Entire consecration.
ATHER, Son, and Holy Ghost,
As by the celestial host,

Lei thy will on earth be done;
Praise by all to thee be given,
Glorious Lord of earth and heaven.

2 Vilest of the sinful race,

Lo! I answer to thy call :
Mennest vessel of thy grace,

Grure divinely free for all;
Lo! I come to do thy will,
All thy counsel to fültil.
3 If so poor a worm as I

May to thy great glory live,
All my actions sanctily,

All my worls and thoughts receive;
Claim nie for thy service, claim
All I bave, and all I am.
4 Take my soul and bolly's powers;

Take my mem'ry, mim, and will;
All my goods, and all my hours;

All I know, and all I feel;
All I think, or speak, or do;
Taku my heart, but make it new.

C. M. Longing to be dissolved in love. JESUS Patlu died that I might live,

Might live to God ; In himi eternal life receive,

And be in spirit one.
2 Saviour, I thank thee for the grace,

The gitt unspeakable;
And wait with arms of faith to embrace,

And all thy love to feul.
3 My soul breaks out in strong desire

The perfect bliss to prove; My litiging heart is all on fire

To be dissolved in love. 4 Give me thyself; from every boast,

From every wiah set free; Let all I am in thee be lost,

But give thyself to me.

5 Thy gifts, alas ! cannot suffice,

Unless thyself be given;
Thy presence nakes my paradise,

And where thou art is heaven.
527
Soul and body dedicated to the Lord.
ET Hiin to whom we now belong,

His sov'reign right assert;
And take up every thankful song,

And every loving heart.
2 He justly claims us for his own,

Who bought us with a price:
The Christian lives to Christ alone;

To Christ alone he dies.
3 Jesus, thine own at last receive;

Fulfil our bearts' desire;
And let us to thy glory live,

And in thy cause expire.
4 Onr souls and bodies we resign;
With joy we render thee
Our all, -no longer ours, but thine

To all eternity. 528

20th P. M. 66, 77, n. Panting for the fulness of Deity. SAVIOUR, the world's and mine,

! Thou my puin, iny curse, hast borne ;

All my sins were Inid on thee :
Help me, Lord, for thee I mourn;

Draw me, Saviour, after thee.
2 To love is all niy wish;
I only live for this:
Grant me, Lord, my henrt's desire,
There, by faith, forever dwell;
This I always will require,

Thee, and only thee to feel.

3 Thy power I pant to prove,

Rooted and fix'd in love; Strengthen'd by thy Spirit's might,

Wise to fathom things divine,
What the length, and breadth, and height,

What the depth of love like thine.
4 Ah! give me this to know,

With all thy saints below;
Swells niy soul to compass thee:

Pants in thee to live and move; Filld with all the Deity,

Al immersed and lost in love!

529

L. M. Thirsting for the fulness of love. I THIRST, thou wounded Lamb of God,

To wash me in thy cleansing blood; To dwell within thy wounds; then pain ls sweet, and life of death is gain. 2 Take my poor heart, and let it be Forever closed to all but thee: Seal thou my breast, and let me wear That pledge of love forever there. 3 How blest are they who still abide Close ebelter'd in thy bleoding side! Who thence their life and strength derive, And by thee move, and in thee Live. 4 What are our works but sin and death, Till thou thy quick 'ning Spirit breathe! Thou giv'st the power thy grace to move O wondrous grace ! O bouindlubs love! 8 How can it be, thou heavenly King, That thou shouldst us to glory bringi Make slaves the partners of thy throne, Deck'd with a never-fading crown!

6 Hence our hearts melt, our eyes o'erflow,
Our words are lost, nor will we know,
Nor will we think of aught beside,
My Lord, my Love, is crucified.

1st P. M. 6 lines 8s.
Ardent longings for the blessing.
COME, O thou universal Good;

Balm of the wounded conscience, come!
The hungry, dying spirit's food,
The weary, wand'ring pilgrim's home;
Haven to take the shipwreck'd in,
My everlasting rest from sin.
2 Come, O my comfort and delight;

My strength and health, my shield and sud;
My boast, and confidence, and might,

My joy, my glory, and my crown:
My Gospel hope, my calling's prize;
My tree of life, my paradise.
3 The Secret of the Lord thou art,

The mystery so long unknown ;
Christ in a pure and perfect heart;
The name inscribed on the white stone :
The life divine, the little leaven,
My precious pearl, my present heaven.
531

C. M.
Love alone victorious.
WHEN shall I see the welcome hour
Spirit of health, and life, and power,

And perfect liberty.
2 Love only can the conquest win,
The strength of sin subdue :
Come, O my Saviour, cast out sin,

And form my soul anew.
