3 Jesus, roll away the stone ;

Good Physician, show thy art : Make thy healing virtue known;

Break the unbelieviug heart; By the bloody cross subdue!'

Tell them, “ I have died for you!" 4. Let thy dying love constrain

Those who disregard thy frown!
Sink the mountain to a plain,

Bring the pride of sioners down:
Soften the obdurate crowd;
Melt the rebels with thy blood.

Thy dwelling in sky,
Fill our church with righteousness,

Our want of faith supply ·
Faith our strong protection be,

Apd godliness with all its power;
'Stablish our prosperity,

Till time shall be no more:
2 Let the Spirit of grace o'erflow

Our re-converted laud :
Let the least and greatest know,

And bow to thy command :
Wisdom, pure religious fear,

Our land's peculiar treasure prove :
Blest with piety sincere;

Inspir'd with humble love.

Hymn 230. P. M.

Isaiah xii.


APPY soul, who see'st the day,

Thee, my Lord, (thou then wilt say,)

Thee will I for ever praise:
Though thy wrath against me buru'd,

Thou dost comfort me again ;
All thy wrath aside is turn'd,

Thou hast blotted out my sin. 2 Me! behold! thy mercy spares !

Jesus my salvation is,
Hence my doubts; away my fears !

Jesus is become my peace :
Jah Jehovah is my Lord,

Ever merciful and just;
I will lean upon his word;

I will on bis promise trust.

3 Strong I am, for he is strong:

Just in righteousness divine;
He is my triumphant song ;

All he has, and is, is mine :
Mine; and yours; whoe'er believe;

On his name whoe'er shall call,
Freely shall his grace receive;

He is full of grace for all.

Hymn 231. P. M.

Isaiah xii.



THEREFORE shall ye draw with joy,

Water from salvation's well; Praise shall your glad tongues employ,

While his streaming grace ye tell.
Each to each, ye then shall say,

Sinners, call upon his name:
O rejoice to see his day!

“See it, and his praise proclaim!" 2 Glory to his name belongs!

Great, and marvellous, and high;
Sing unto the Lord your songs,

Cry to every nation, cry!
Wondrous things the Lord hath done :

Excellent his name we find;
This to all mankind is known;

Be it known to all mankind.

3 Zion, shout thy Lord and King;

Israel's Holy One is He!
Give him thanks, rejoice and sing ;

Great he is, and dwells in thee.
O the grace unsearchable!

While eternal ages roll, God delights in man to dwell,

Source of each believing soul.

Hymn 232. L. M. God is able of these stones to raise up children

unto Abraham Luke iii. 8.

1 G VLORY to God, whose sov'reigo grace,

Hath animated sepseless stones; Call'd us to stand before his face,

Aud rais'd us into Abrah'm's sons. 2 The people that in darkness lay,

(lu sin and error's deadly shade,) Have seen a glorious gospel day,

In Jesu's lovely face display'd,
3 Thou only, Lord, the work bast done;

Made bare thine arm in all our sight,
Hast made the reprobates thine own,

And claim'd the outcasts as thy right. 4 For this the saints lift up their voice,

And ceaseless praise to thee is given :
For this the hosts above rejoice;

We raise the happiness of heaven. $ Bot, O the power of grace divine!

in hyruns we now our voices raise!
Loudly in strange hosannas join,
And blasphemies are turn'd to praise !

With every gospel blessing bless,
And o'er the earth disperse;

Till thou art fear'd, confess'd, and knom

Throughout the universe.
