Hymn 164. L. M.
If any bowels and mercies. Pbil. ij. 1.
Nie smatrne distress, his sore complaints,

by bowels of my God,
By his last groan, his dying blood,

I charge my soul to love the saints.
2 Clamour, and wrath, and strife be gone,

Envy and spite for ever cease;
Let bitter words no more be known

Amongst the saints, the sons of peace. 3 The Spirit, like a peaceful dove,

Flies from the realms of noise and strife; Why should we vex and grieve his love,

Who seals our souls to heavenly life? 4 Tender and kind be all our thoughts,

Throughout our lives let mercy run : Vould God forgive our num'rous faults, Only through faith in Christ alone.

Hymn 165. S. M. Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.

Rom. xii. 15.
LEST be the tie that binds

Our hearts in Christian love;
The fellowship of kindred minds,

Is like to that above.
2 Before our Father's throne,

We pour our ardent prayers :
Our fears, our hopes, our aims are one,

Our comforts and our cares.

3 We share our mutual woes;

Our mutual burdens bear; And ofteu for each other flows

The sympathizing tear. 4 When we asunder part,

It gives us inward pain,
But we shall still be join'd in heart,

And hope to meet again. 5 This glorious hope revives

Our courage by the way; While each in expectation lives,

Aud longs to see the day. 6 From sorrow, toil, and pain,

And sin, we shall be free;
And perfect love and friendship reign

Through all eternity.

for us. 1 Cor, v. 7. For as oft as ye eat this bread, and drink this

cup, ye do show the Lord's death till he come. 1 Cor. xi. 26.

A sacrifice for guilty man,

By the eternal Spirit made

An offerivg in the sinner's stead : 2 Our everlasting Priest art thou,

And plead'st thy death for sinpers Dow; Thy off?ring still continues new,

Thy vesture keeps its bloody hue. 30 that our faith may never move,

But stand upshaken as thy love,
And view thee bleeding on the tree,
My God, who diest for me, for me!

All his suff'rings for mankind : True recorder of his passion,

Now the living fire impart, Now reveal bis great salvation,

Preach his gospel to our heart. 2 Come, thou Witoess of his dying,

Come, Remembrancer divine: Let us feel thy power applying

Christ to every soul and mine: Let us groan thine inward groaning,

Look on him we pierc'd, and griere, All receive the grace atoning,

All the sprinkled blood receive.

And let us mercy find;
Think on us, who think on thee,

And every struggling soul release !

And bid us go in peace. 2 By thine agonizing pain,

And bloody sweat, we pray,
By thy dying love to man,

Take all our sins away:
Burst our bonds and set us free,

From all iniquity release; o remember Calvary,

And bid us go in peace. 3 Let thy blood by faith applied,

The sioner's pardon seal, Speak us freely justified,

And all our sickness heal : By thy passion on the tree,

Let all our griefs and troubles cease : O remember Calvary,

And bid us go in peace. 4 Never will we hence depart,

Till thou our wants relieve: Write forgiveness on our heart,

And all thine image give :

Still our souls shall cry to thee,

Till perfected in holiness,
O remember Calvary,
And bid us go in peace.

As channels to convey thy love

To every faithful heart.

In us vouchsafe to be;
Thy flesh for all the world is given,

And all may live by thee.

And let us drink thy blood, Till all our souls are fill'd below,

With all the life of God.

But Jesus crucified,
I will not from my Jesus go,
Or leave his wounded side,
