Struggling into liberty.
JESUS! Redeemer, Saviour, Lord,
Come to my help, pronounce the word,
2 Deliv'rance to my soul proclaim,
3 Faith to be heal'd thou know'st I have, For thou that faith hast given;
Thou canst, thou wilt, the sinner save,
Embracing offered mercy.
4 Thou canst o'ercome this heart of mine; Thou wilt victorious prove;
For everlasting strength is thine,
MY offended God!
That I have trampled on thy blood,
Out of my deadly sleep;
2 No other right have I,
Thy death hath wrought the power
That all may know the gracious hour
3 Thou hast for sinners died,
That all may turn and live; And now thy offer I embrace,— Thy mercy I receive.
Embracing the all-sufficient Portion.
To tear my soul from earth away
2 Nay, but I yield, I yield;
3 Though late, I all forsake;
And seal me ever thine.
4 Come, and possess me whole,
5 My one desire be this,-
To seek and taste no other bliss,-
6 My life, my portion thou; Thou all-sufficient art:
My hope, my heavenly treasure, now Enter, and keep my heart.
Laght dawning upon the soul.
2 Humbly on thee I wait,
3 O hearken to my voice,-
4 Glory to God above,
The waters soon will cease;
The returning prodigal.
THE long-lost son, with streaming eyes,
Reviews his wand'rings with surprise;
2 I starve, he cries, nor can I bear
3 With deep repentance I'll return, And seek my Father's face; Unworthy to be call'd a son,
I'll ask a servant's place.
4 Far off the Father saw him move,—
5 Through all the courts the tidings flew,
12th P. M. 76, 76, 78, 76, Saved by grace.
ET the world their virtue boast,-
I, a wretch undone and lost,
This, only this, is all my plea:--
2 Happy they whose joys abound
His steps I at a distance see:—
Jesus, thou for me hast died,
I the chief of sinners am,
But Jesus died for me.
JUSTIFICATION BY FAITH.
11th P. M. 76, 76, 77, 76.
Mount to Christ, my glorious Head,
From thence to bring him up?
By unfeign'd humility,
3 But the righteousness of faith
Hath taught me better things:Inward turn thine eyes,-it sait
While Christ to me it brings:Christ is ready to impart
Life to all, for life who sigh: In thy mouth and in thy heart The word is ever nigh.
The Lord our righteousness.
