SHoRT. 51.

LORD. help us as we pray,
To come with hearts sincere,
And as we run in wisdom's way,
To seek thy blessing here.

2 Lord, help us as we sing, To mean the words we use,

‘And not to mock our heavenly King, And all his love abuse.

3 Lord, help us as we hear,
To treasure up thy word,

And not to-morrow to appear
As if it were unheard.

4 Lord, help us while we live,
Thy servants to abide ;

The aid of thy good Spirit give;
In mercy be our guide.

5 Lord, help us when we die,
To reach yon heavenly shore,

That we with angel hosts on high
May praise thee evermore.


LORD, we are vile, conceived in sin,
And born unholy and unclean;

Sprung from the man whose guilty fall

Corrupts the race and taints us all.

2 Soon as we draw our infant breath,
The seeds of sin grow up for death;
The law demands a perfect heart,
But we're defiled in every part.

3 Behold, we fall before thy face;
Our only refuge is thy grace;
No outward forms can make us clean;
The leprosy lies deep within.

4. When guilt disturbs and breaks our pea
Nor flesh nor soul hath rest or ease :
Lord, let us hearthy pardoning voice,
Now bid our broken hearts rejoice.

CoMMON. 53. WATTs.

BLESSD be the wisdom and the power
The justice and the grace,
That join'd in counsel to restore
And save our ruin’d race.

2 Bless'd be the Lord, who sent his Son To take our flesh and blood:

He for our lives gave up his own,
To make our peace with God.

3 He honour'd all his Father's laws,
Which we have disobey'd;

He bore our sins upon the cross,
And our full ransom paid.

4 Behold him rising from the grave,
Behold him raised on high .

He pleads his merits there to save
Transgressors doom'd to die.

5 Thence shall the Lord to judgment come, And, with a sovereign voice,

Shall call and break up every tomb,
While waking saints rejoice.

6 O may I then with joy appear
Before the Judge's face,

And with the bless'd assembly there
Sing his redeeming grace.


LET earth and heaven agree,
Angels and men be join'd,
To celebrate with me
The Saviour of mankind;
T'adore the all-atoning Lamb,
And bless the sound of Jesus' name.

2 Jesus! transporting sound ! The joy of earth and heaven;

No other help is found,
No other name is given,

By which we can salvation have,

For Jesus came the world to save.

3 Jesus! harmonious name !
It charms the hosts above;
They evermore proclaim,
And wonder at his love;
'Tis all their happiness to gaze,
'Tis heaven to see our Jesus' face.

4 His name the sinner hears,
And is from sin set free ;
'Tis music in his ears,
'Tis life and victory;
New songs do now his lips employ,
And dances his glad heart for joy.

CoMMon. 55. CowPER

THERE is a fountain fill'd with blood Drawn from Immanuel's veins; And sinners, plunged beneath that floor. Lose all their guilty stains.

2 The dying thief rejoiced to see
That fountain in his day;

O may I there, though vile as he,
Wash all my sins away !


LET children proclaim their Saviour and King To Jesus's name hosannas we sing:

Our best adoration to Jesus we give,

Who purchased salvation for us to receive.

2 The meek Lamb of God from heaven came down, To ransom with blood and make us his own; He patiently suffer'd, our souls to redeem; Let songs then be offer'd to Jesus's name.

3 To him let us give our earliest days,
And thankfully live to publish his praise:
Our lives shall confess him who came from above.
Our tongues ever bless him, and tell of his love.

CoMMon. 57. WESLEY.

O FOR a thousand tongues to sing
My great Redeemer's praise!
The glories of my God and King,
The triumphs of his grace

2 Jesus!—the Name that charms our fears, That bids our sorrows cease;

"Tis music in the sinner's ears,
'Tis life, and health, and peace.

3 He breaks the power of cancell'd sin,
He sets the prisoner free;

His blood can make the foulest clean;
His blood avail'd for me.
