Hymn 279. L. M.
That the poroer of Christ may rest upon me
2 Cor. xii. 9. 'L
ET me but hear my Saviour say,
" Strength shall be equal to thy day,” Then I rejoice in deep distress,
Leaning on all-sufficient grace. 2 I glory in infirmity,
That Christ's own power may rest on me;
Grace is my shield, and Christ my song. 3 I can do all things, or can bear
All suff'rings, if my Lord be there;
While his left hand my head sustains : 4 But if the Lord be once withdrawn,
And we attempt the work alone,
We find how great our weakness is.
Met the Philistines to his cost:
Hymn 280. P. M.
whence cometh my help. Psa. cxxi 1. TO
the hills 1 lift mine eyes, The everlasting hills,
Streaming thence in fresh supplies,
My soul the Spirit feels :
Help, while yet I aşk, is given:
That made both earth and heaven. 2 Faithful soul, pray! always pray,
And still in God confide;
Nor suffer thee to slide;
He thy quiet spirit keeps ;
Thy Watchman never sleeps. 3 See the Lord, thy Keeper staud,
Omnipotently near ;
And banishes thy fear :
Guards from all impending harms ;
Hyınn 281. P. M. Who comforteth us in all our tribulation.
2 Cor. i. 4. 1 LET God, who comforts the distrest;
And show thyself the Comforter:
2 We weep for those who weep below,
And burthen'd for th' afflicted, sigh,
Excite our softest sympathy;
And draw out all our souls in prayer. 3 Father of everlasting love,
To every soul thy Son reveal,
Our deep orig'nal wound to heal :
And turn our earth to paradise.
And time commence eternity:
And face to face the Saviour see:
Hymn 282. P. M.
O Lord, correct me, but with judgment ; not in
thine anger, lest thou bring me to nothing. Jer. x. 24.
For all that I have done,
Cbastise thine humbled son!
Correct with kind severity!
But bring me home to thee.
2 True and faithful as thou art,
To all tby church and me;
That knows and cleaves to thee.
And by thy balmy blood restor'd,
Thou art our pard’ning Lord. 3 Might we now with pure desire,
Thine only love request;
Return to Christ our rest :
O Jesus, to be fill'd with thee,
Through all eternity.
Hymn 283. C. M.
Except ye be converted and become as little chil
dren, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Luke xviii. 3.
MAY my thoughts be humble stii,
And all my carriage mild :
Submissive as a child.
Shall bave a large reward :
And trust a faithful Lord.

go hence. Psal. xxxix. 13.

Lord, with pity see,
And all his griefs remove. 2 Support the tott'ring clay
That weighs the spirit down,
To that eternal crown. 3 Yet pow in life detain
His soul for Zion's sake;
Aud to his friends give back. 4 lu answer to our cry,
Thy feeble servant raise,

The Spirit's silent prayer.
