2a P. M. 6 lines 88. Crucified with Christ. Home and teachable, and mild,
My lowly Master's steps pursue !
In love create thou all things new.
To thee with my whole heart aspire :
Be thou alone my one desire.
Beholding thee with open face;
And all my spotless life be praise.
Sprinkled with the stoning blood :
And know that I am one with God.
Through the atoning blood;
And to my pardon join
The Comforter divine.
2 If mercy is indeed with thee,
May I obedient prove,
Or sin against thy love:
On a poor sojourner;
In humbleness and fear.
My strict observer see;
My child-like heart to thee:
At Jesus' feet abide :
And seat me by his side.
1st P. M. 6 lines 88. Pilgrims and strangers ; homeward bound EADER of faithful souls, and guide
Who would on thee alone rely;
This earth, we know, is not our place;,
And, restless to behold thy face,
But seek a city out of sight;
Aspiring to the plains of light -Jerusalem, the saints abode, Whose founder is the living God.
4 Patient the appointed race to run,
This weary world we cast behind; From strength to strength we travel on,
The New Jerusalem to find : Our labour this, our only aiin, To find the New Jerusalem. 5 Through thee, who all our sins hast bone,
Freely and graciously forgiven,
Contending for our native heaven;
We urge our way, with strength renew'd; The church of the first-born to join,
We travel to the mount of God:
5th P. M. 4 lines 7s.
The pilgrim's song,
As we journey let us sing;.
5 Lord ! obediently we'll go, Gladly leaving all below : Only thou our leader be, And we still will follow thee. 839
C. M. God's pavilion. TRANT me within thy courts & place, U Among thy saints a seat, Forever to behold thy face,
And worship at thy feet 2 In thy pavilion to abide,
When storms of trouble blow, And in thy tebernacle hide,
Secure from every foe. 3 Seek ye my face :-without delay,
When thus I hear thee speak, My heart would leap for joy, and 887,
Thy face, Lord, will I seek. 4 Then leave me not when griefs assail
, And earthly comforts flee; When father, mother, kindred fail,
My God I remember me. 810
Your life is kid with Christ in God. TE faithful souls, who Jesus know, Superior to the joys below,
His resurrection's power declare. 2 Your faith by holy tempers prove :
By actions show your sins forgiven : And seek the glorious things above,
And follow Christ your head to heaven. 3 There your exalted Saviour see,
Seated at God's right hand again, In all bis Father's majesty,
In everlasting pomp to reign.
4 To him continually aspire,
Contending for your native place;
And only live to love and praise,
Ye nothing seek or want beside ;
Your creature-love is crucified,
Deep in the Father's bosom lies; And glorious as your Head reveal'd,
Ye soon shall meet himn in the skies.
Of thy unbounded grace.
Our captive souls surround;
Our wond'ring thoughts confound. 3 As through a glass we see
The wonders of thy love;
Or of the joys above!
And bless thee for the sight:
In glory's clearer light.
Thy providence and grace;
In wonder, love, and praisa.
