LIII. Power of the Redeemer's looks. P. M.
ESUS, let thy pitying eye
Call back a wand'ring sheep: False to thee like Peter, I
Would fain like Peter weep:
On me be all long-luff’ring shown,
heart of stone!
Saviour! Prince! enthron'd above,
Repentance to impart,
The humble contrite heart:
See me, Saviour, from above,
Nor suffer me to die:
Drop froin thy gracious eye:
LIV. Holy reasoning. P. M.
JESUS Friendsofferpers, hear
ESUS, Friend of sinners, hear
A feeble creature pray:
debt of fin fet clear
A poor backsliding soul restore:
And bid me weep no more,
Though my fins as mountains rise,
And swell, and reach to heav'n,
And I shall ftand forgiv'n:
But greater is thy mercy's fore!
From th' oppressive sense of sin
My truggling spirit free:
Can rescue even me!
Love me freely, seal my peace,
And bid me weep no more.
LV. In distress of Soul. P. M.
ESU, lover of my soul,
Let me to thy bosom fly, While the billows near me roll,
While the tempest still is high: Hide me, O my Saviour, hide,
Till the storm of life is past; Safe into the haven guide,
Oh receive my soul at last!
Other refuge have 1 none,
Hangs my helpless foul on Thee; Leave, Oh! leave me not alone,
Still support and comfort me: All my trust on Thee is stay'd,
All mine help from Thee I bring; Cover my defenceless head
With the shadow of thy wing.
Thou, O Christ, art all I want,
Boundless love in Thee I find:
Raise the fallen, cheer the faint,
Heal the sick, and lead the blind. Just and holy is thy name,
I am all unrighteousness: Vile and full of fin I am,
Thou art full of truth and grace.
Plenteous grace with Thee is found,
Grace to pardon all my fin; Let the healing streams abound,
Make and keep me pure within: Thou of life the fountain art,
Freely let me take of Thee; Spring Thou up within my heart,
Rise to all eternity.
LVI. Wrestling Jacob. 75.
AY, I cannot let Thee go,
Till a blessing Thou bestow; Do not turn away Thy face, Mine's an urgent, pressing cafe.
Dost Thou ask me, who I am?
Once a finner near despair,
Many years have pass’d since then,
Thou hast help'd in every need,
