4 O remember me for good,
Passing through the mortal vale;
Show me the atoning blood,
When my strength and spirit fail :
Give my gasping soul to see
Jesus crucified for me.

CoMMON. 71. WESLEY

FOR that tenderness of heart Which bows before the Lord, Acknowledging how just thou art, And trembles at thy word ' O for those humble, contrite tears, Which from repentance flow; That consciousness of guilt which fears The long-suspended blow ! 2 Saviour, to me in pity give The sensible distress; The pledge thou wilt at last receive, And bid me die in peace: Wilt from the dreadful day remove, Before the evil come ; My spirit hide with saints above, My body in the tomb.

SHORT. 72. wesley O THAT I could repent, With all my idols part, And to thy gracious eye present An humble, contrite heart

A heart with grief oppress'd
For having grieved my God,

A troubled heart that cannot rest
Till sprinkled with thy blood.

2 Jesus on me bestow
The penitent desire;
With true sincerity of wo
My aching breast inspire:
With softening pity look,
And melt my hardness down;
Strike with thy love's resistless stroke,
And break this heart of stone'

CoMMON. 73. WESLEY.

O THAT I could my Lord receive,

Who did the world redeem;

Who gave his life that I might live
A life conceal’d in him.

2 O that I could the blessing prove, My heart's extreme desire;

Live happy in my Saviour's love,
And in his arms expire

3 Mercy I ask to seal my peace,
That, kept by mercy's power,

I may from every evil cease,
And never grieve thee more.

4 In answer to ten thousand prayers, Thou pardoning God, descend;

Number me with salvation's heirs,
My sins and troubles end.

5 Nothing I ask or want beside,
Of all in earth or heaven;

But let me feel thy blood applied.
And live and die forgiven.

Eights AND sixes. 74. WEslev.

AUTHOR of faith, to thee I cry, To thee, who would'st not have me die, But know the truth and live: %. mine eyes to see thy face, ork in my heart the saving grace, The life eternal give.

2 Shut up in unbelief I groan,
And blindly serve a God unknown,
Till thou the veil remove;
The gift unspeakable impart,
And write thy name upon my hear,
And manifest thy love.

3 Thou bid'st us knock and sole: i).
Come unto thee, and rest fron sin,
The blessing seek and find:
Thou bidst us ask thy grace, and have ;
Thou canst, thou wouldst this moment save
Both me and all mankind.

4 Be it according to thy word;
Now let me find my pard'ning Lord;
Let what I ask be given:

The bar of unbelief remove,
Open the door of faith and love,
And take me into heaven'

Long. 75. WESLEY LORD, I despair myself to heal;

I see my sin, but cannot feel:
I cannot, till thy Spirit blow,
And bid the obedient waters flow.

2 "Tis thine a heart of flesh to give :
Thy gifts I only can receive;
Here, then, to thee I all resign,
To draw, redeem, and seal—are thine.
3 With simple faith on thee I call;
My light, my life, my Lord, my all:
I wait the moving of the pool;
I wait the word that speaks me whole.
4 Speak, gracious Lord, my sickness cure,
Make my infected nature pure :
Peace, righteousness, and joy impart,
And pour thyself into my heart |

EARLY PIETY.
CoMMON. 76.
COME, let us join the hosts above,
Now in our youngest days;
Remember our Creator's love,
And lisp our Father's praise.

2 His majesty will not despise
The day of feeble things;

Grateful the songs of children rise,
And please the King of kings.

o
3 He loves to be remember'd thus,
And honour'd for his grace;
Out of the mouths of babes like us,
His wisdom perfects praise.

4 Glory to God, and praise, and power, Honour and thanks be given :

Children and cherubim adore
The Lord of earth and heaven.

COMMON. 77. WATTs.

WHAT blest examples do I find
Writ in the word of truth,
Of children that began to mind
Religion in their youth.

2 Jesus, who reigns above the sky,
And keeps the world in awe,

Was once a child as young as I,
And kept his Father's law.

3. At twelve years old he talk'd with men, (His parents wondering stand)

Yet he obey'd his mother then,
And came at her command.

4 Children their loud hosannas sung, And blest their Saviour's name;
