Leave, ah! leave me not alone,
Still support and comfort me! All iny trust on thee is stay'd
All my help from thee I bring, Cover my defencelcss head
With the shadow of thy wing. 3 Thou, O Christ, art all I want;
More than all in thee I find, Raise the fall’n, cheer the faint,
Heal the sick, and lead the blind: Just and holy is thy name;
I am all anrighteousness; False and full of sin I am,
Thou art full of truth and grace. 4 Plenteous grace with thee is found,
Grace to cover all my sin. Let the healing streams abound,
Make and keep me pure within ; Tbou of life the fountain art;
Freely let me take c! thee:
Hymn 20. P. M.
When shall I find my willing heart,
The love of Christ to me!
The first-born sons of light:
Desire in vain its depths to see;
The length, the breadth, and height: 3 God only knows the love of God; O that it wow were shed abroad
In this poor stony heart!
Be mine this better part!
Be this my happy choice; My ouly care, delight, and bliss, My joy, my heaven on earth be this,
To hear the Bridegroom's voice! 5 O that I could with favour'd John, Recline my weary head upou
The dear Redeemer's breast : From care, and sin, and sorrow free, Give me, 0. Lord, to find in thee My everlasting rest !
Hymn 21. S. M.
H! whither shall I go,,
A and faint
To whom should I my trouble show,
And pour out my complaint ?
Ah! why do I delay?
And yet from him I stay.
2 What is it keeps me back,
From which I cannot part?
Possession of my heart?
Must surely lurk within ;
Some secret, bosom sin. 3 Jesus, the hindrance show,
Which I have feared to ee;
What keeps me out of thee!
Thy trying power display;
And take the veil away!
Compassion reigns alone:
O let it, Lord, be done!
Which thou wouldst fain remove;
That God is only love.
Hymn 22. P. M.
Pity a soul that fain would trust
In him who liv'd and died for me:
2 If drawn by thine alluring grace,
My want of living faith I feel, Show me in Christ thy smiling face,
What flesh and blood can ue'er reveal ; Thy coetersal Son display,
And turor my darkness into day. 3 The gift unspeakable impart;
Command the light of faith to shine:
And fill me with the lise divine;
Hymn 23. P. M.
vary's top: The blood thou hast shed, for me let it plead, And declare thou hast died in thy murderer's
stead. 2 Now, now let me know its virtue below! Let it wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow, Let it hallow my heart, and througbly couvert And make me, O Lord, in the world as thou art. 3 Each moment applied, my weakness to hide, Thy blood be upon me, and always abide : My Advocate prove with the Father above, And speak me at last to the throne of thy love.
Hymn 24. P. M.
To visit a sorrowful breast;
And bring me assurance and rest,
Thou only hast power to relieve
A sinner o'erwhelin'd with his load;
And sprinkle his heart with thy blood! 2 With me if of old thou hast strove,
And strangely withheld me from sin;
My worthless affections to win;
Thy utteripost mercy exert,
And hold, till I yield thee my heart. 3 Thy call if I ever have known,
And sigh'd from myself to get free;
And long'd to be happy in thee;
Thy peace to my conscience reveal,
And give me my pardon to feel. 4 If when I had put thee to grief,
And madly to folly returnd,
And lifted me up as I mourn'd!
Relieve me again, and restore
To fall and to suffer no more 5 If now I lament after God,
And gasp for a drop of thy love ;
For me to receive from above;
