2 Still may I cleave to thee,

And never more depart;
But watch with godly jealousy

Over my evil heart.
3 Tbus may I pass my days

Of sojourning beneath,
And languish to conclude my race,

And render up my breath. 4 In humble love and fear,

Thine image to regain,
And see thee in the clouds appear,

And rise with thee to reign!

Approach his courts, besiege his throne,

With all the power of prayer. 2 Go to his temple, go;

Nor from his altar more;
Let every house his worship know,

And every heart bis love. 3 To God your spirits dart,

Your souls in words declare;
Or groan to bim who reads the heart,

Th'ungtterable prayer.'

And now show forth his praise;
In shouts, or silent awe, adore
His miracies of grace.

thanks, be made for all men. 1 Tim. ij. I.

And bow them with your knees;
And spread your hearts aud hands abroad,

And pray for Zion's peace.
2 Your guides and brethren bear,

For ever on your mind;
Extend the arms of mighty prayer,

And grasp in all mankind.
3 From strength to strength go on;

Wrestle, and fight, and pray:
Tread all the pow'rs of darkness down,

And win the well-fought day. 4 Still let the Spirit cry,

In all his soldiers," come;"
Till Christ the Lord descends from high,
And takes the conqu'rors home.

To utter our complaint:
Quiet we shall never know,

Till we from sin are fully freed;

And bruise the serpent's head ! 2 We have now begun to cry,

And we will never end,
Till we find salvation nigh,

And grasp the sinner's Friend:
Day and night we'll speak our wo,

With thee importunately plead;

And bruise the serpent's head! 3 Speak the word, and we shall be

Froro all our bands releas'd;
Only thou canst set us free,

By Satan long oppressid:
Now thy power almighty show;

Arise the woman's conqu’ring Seed!
O avenge us of our foe,

And bruise the serpent's head! 4 To destroy his work of sin,

Thyself in us reveal; Manifest thyself within

Our flesh, and fully dwell With us, in us, here below;

Enter and diake us free indeed; O avenge us of our foc,

And bruise the serpent's bead ! 5 Stronger than the strong man, thou

His fury canst control;

Cast him out by entering now,

And keep our ransom'd soul:: Satau's kingdom overthrow,

On all the powers of darkness tread: O avenge us of our foe,

And bruise' the serpent's head!" 6 Come, O come, all-glorious Lord!

No longer now delay;
With thy Spirit's two-edy'd sword,

The crooked serpent slay!
Bare thine arm and give the blow,

Root out and kill the corrupt seed:
avenge us of our foe,
And Cruise' the serpent's head!

And all their powers defy? 3 Jesu's tremendous name,
