2 His precious blood was shed,
His body bruised, for sin:
Remember this in eating bread,
And this in drinking wine.
3 Approach his royal board,
In his rich garments clad;
Join every tongue to praise the Lord,
And every heart be glad.

4 The Father gives the Son;
The Son, his flesh and blood:
The Spirit seals; and faith puts on,
The righteousness of God."


9th P. M. 87, 87, 87, 87. The heavenly banquet.

his banner o'er

Cheers our famish'd souls with food; He the banquet spreads before us, Of his mystic flesh and blood. Precious banquet; bread of heaven; Wine of gladness, flowing free; May we taste it, kindly given,

In remembrance, Lord, of thee. 2 In thy holy incarnation,

When the angels sang thy birth; In thy fasting and temptation;

In thy labours on the earth; In thy trial and rejection;

In thy suff'rings on the tree; In thy glorious resurrection; May we, Lord, remember thee. 282

SIONS of God, triumphant rise;

Shout the' accomplish'd sacrifice; Shout your sins in Christ forgiven,Sons of God, and heirs of heaven.

2 Love's mysterious work is done;
Greet we now the' atoning Son;
Heal'd and quicken'd by his blood,
Join'd to Christ, and one with God.

3 Him by faith we taste below,
Mightier joys ordain'd to know;
When his utmost grace we prove,
Rise to heaven by perfect love.


12th P. M. 76, 76, 78, 76. For a parting blessing.

AMB of God, whose dying love
We now

Send the answer from above,
And let us mercy find:
Think on us who think on thee,
And every struggling soul release;
O remember Calvary,
And bid us go in peace!

2 By thine agonizing pain,
And bloody sweat, we pray,-
By thy dying love to man,—
Take all our sins away:
Burst our bonds, and set us free;
From all iniquity release;
O remember Calvary,
And bid us go in peace!

3 Let thy blood, by faith applied,
The sinner's pardon seal;
Speak us freely justified,

And all our sickness heal:
By thy passion on the tree,

Let all our griefs and troubles cease; O remember Calvary,

And bid us go in peace!

The fountain of living waters.
FOUNTAIN of life and of grace
In Christ, our Redeemer, we see:
For us, who his offers embrace,
For all, it is open and free:
Jehovah, himself, doth invite

To drink of his pleasures unknown:
The streams of immortal delight,

That flow from his heavenly throne. 2 As soon as in him we believe,

By faith of his Spirit we take: And, freely forgiven, receive

The mercy for Jesus's sake! We gain a pure drop of his love; The life of eternity know; Angelical happiness prove,

And witness a heaven below.

All-sufficiency of the gospel.

THE gospel! O, what endless charms

Dwell blissful sound;

Its influence every fear disarms,
And spreads delight around.

2 Here pardon, life, and joy divine, In rich effusion flow,

For guilty rebels, lost in sin,
And doom'd to endless wo.

3 The' almighty Former of the skies
Stoops to our vile abode;
While angels view with wond'ring eyes,
And hail the' incarnate God.

4 How rich the depths of love divine!
Of bliss a boundless store!
Redeemer, let me call thee mine,-
Thy fulness I implore.

5 On thee alone my hope relies;
Beneath thy cross I fall;
My Lord, my life, my sacrifice,
My Saviour, and my all!


Our debt paid upon the cross.

The mighty Saviour comes;
Lays his bright robes of glory by,
And feeble flesh assumes.

3 The debt that sinners owed,
Upon the cross he pays:
Then through the clouds ascends to God,
'Midst shouts of loftiest praise.

4 There our High Priest appears,
Before his Father's throne;
Mingles his merits with our tears,
And pours salvation down.
5 Great Sov'reign, we adore
Thy justice and thy grace,
And on thy faithfulness and power
Our firm dependence place.



The divine Teacher.

HOW sweetly flow'd the gospel's sound grace, While list'ning thousands gather'd round, And joy and rev'rence fill'd the place.

2 From heaven he came, of heaven he spoke,
To heaven he led his foll'wers' way;
Dark clouds of gloomy night he broke,
Unveiling an immortal day.

3 Come, wand'rers, to my Father's home;
Come, all ye weary ones, and rest.
Yes, sacred Teacher! we will come,
Obey, and be forever blest.

4 Decay, then, tenements of dust!
Pillars of earthly pride, decay!
A nobler mansion waits the just,
And Jesus has prepared the way.


S. M.

All-sufficient grace.


YRACE! 'tis a charming sound,
Harmonious to the ear;
Heaven with the echo shall resound,
And all the earth shall hear.

2 Grace first contrived a way
To save rebellious man;

And all the steps that grace display,
Which drew the wondrous plan.

3 Grace taught my roving feet
To tread the heavenly road;
And new supplies each hour I meet,
While pressing on to God.

4 Grace all the work shall crown,
Through everlasting days;
It lays in heaven the topmost stone,
And well deserves our praise.

The work is all divine.
