But he saw you with a smile,
And to save you hasten’d down.

Listen, children I this is why

Jesus condescends to die.

SHORT. 65. WESLEY.

WHEN shall thy love constrain,
And force me to thy breast !
When shall my soul return again
To her eternal rest ?

2 Thy condescending grace
To me did freely move;

It calls me still to seek thy face,
And stoops to ask my love.

3 To rescue me from wo, -
Thou didst with all things part;

Didst lead a suffering life below
To gain my worthless heart.

4 My worthless heart to gain,
The Lord of all that breathe
Was found in fashion as a man,
And died a cursed death.
5 And can I yet delay
My little all to give;
To tear my soul from earth away,
For Jesus to receive?
6 Nay, but I yield, I yield:
I can hold out no more ;

I sink, by dying love compell'd,
And own thee conqueror!

COMMON. 66. WATT.

COME, let us join our cheerful song. With angels round the throne; Ten thousand thousand are their tongu But all their joys are one.

2 Worthy the Lamb that died, they cry To be exalted thus:

Worthy the Lamb, our hearts reply,
For he was slain for us.

3 Jesus is worthy to receive Honour and power divine;

And blessings more than we can give, Be, Lord, for ever thine.

4 The whole creation join in one,
To bless the sacred name

Of Him that sits upon the throne,
And to adore the Lamb.

SEVENs. 67. WESLEY.

GLQRY be to God on high,
God, whose glory fills the sky;

Peace on earth to man forgiven,

Man, the well-beloved of heaven.

2 Sovereign Father, heavenly King, Thee we now presume to sing;

Glad thine attributes confess,
Glorious all, and numberless.

3 Hail, by all thy works adored
Hail, the everlasting Lord!
Thee with thankful hearts we prove,
God of power, and God of love.

4 Christ our Lord and God we own,
Christ, the Father's only Son,
Lamb of God, for sinners slain,
Saviour of offending man.

5 Bow thine ear, in mercy bow,
Hear, the world's atonement, thou!
Jesus, in thy name we pray,
Take, O take our sins away !

2 "Tis finish’d—all that Heaven decreed,
And all that ancient prophets said,
Is now fulfill'd, as was design'd,
In me, the Saviour of mankind.
3. "Tis finish'd;—this my dying groan
Shall sin of every kind atone;
Millions shall be redeem'd from death,
Bv this my last expiring breath

And all the powers of darkness spoil'd :
Peace, love, and happiness, again
Return, and dwell with sinful men.

5 'Tis finish'd :—let the joyful sound
Be heard through all the nations round:
'Tis finish'd :-let the echo fly,
Through heaven and hell, through earth and sky.

REPENTANCE AND FAITH.
Short. 69. TAYLOR.

F Jesus Christ was sent
To save us from our sin,
And kindly teach us to repent,
We should at once begin.

2 He says he loves to see
A broken-hearted one ;

He loves that sinners such as we
Should mourn for what we’ve done.

3 Tis not enough to say
We're sorry and repent;
Yet still go on from day to day
Just as we always went.

4 Repentance is, to leave
The sins we loved before ;

And show that we in earnest grieve,
By doing so no more.

5 Lord, make us thus sincere,
To watch as well as pray;

However small, however dear,
Take all our sins away.

6 And since the Saviour came
To make us turn from sin,

With holy grief, and humble shame,
May we at once begin.

SEVENS. 70. WESLEY.

SAVIOUR, Prince of Israel's race,
See me from thy lofty throne;
Give the sweet relenting grace,
Soften this obdurate stone !
Stone to flesh, O God, convert ;
Cast a look, and break my heart'

2. By thy Spirit, Lord, reprove;
All my inmost sins reveal;
Sins against thy light and love,
Let me see, and let me feel;
Sins that crucified my God,
Spilt again thy precious blood.

3 Might I in thy sight appear,
As the publican, distress'd ;
Stand, not daring to draw near;
Smite on my unworthy breast;
Groan the sinner's only plea,
“God be merciful to me!”
