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,

And 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.


LORD'S SUPPER. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us.

Aud view thee bleeding on the tree,
My God, who diest for me, for me!

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 grieve, All receive the grace atonings

All the sprinkled blood receive.

My peace I give unto you. John xiv. 27.

Send the answer from above,

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

And every struggling soul release!
O remeniber Calvary,

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

By thy dying love to man,

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

From all iniquity release;

And bid us go in peace.

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

And all thine image give :

And bid us go in peace.

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.

look on him whom they pierced. John xix. 37. 1 N Tow let our mournful songs record

The dying sorrows of our Lord, When he complain'd in tears and blood,

As one forsaken of his God.
2 Oh!'barb'rous people, cruel priests!

How they stand round like savage beasts !
Like lious gaping to devour,

When God had left him in their power.
3 They wound his head, his hands, bis feet,

Till streams of blood each other meet :
By lot his garments they divide,

Ard mock the pangs in which he died.
4 But God, the Father, heard him cry;
Rais'd from the dead, he reigns on high ;
The nations learn bis rightcousness,
And bumbled sinners taste his grace.
