2 No man can truly say
That Jesus is the Lord,
Unless thou take the veil away,
And breathe the living word:
Then, only then we feel

Our int rest in his blood;
And cry, with joy unspeakable,-
Thou art my Lord, my God!

30 that the world might know
The all-atoning Lamb!
Spirit of faith, descend and show
The virtue of his Name:
The grace which all may find,
The saving power impart;
And testify to all mankind,
And speak in every heart.


26th P. M. 7s & 6s.

The comforts, gifts, and graces of the Spirit.

OD of all consolation,


Thy secret inspiration
Hath told it to my heart:
The blessing I inherit,

Through Jesus' prayer bestow'd,
The Comforter, the Spirit,
The true eternal God.

2 With God the Son and Saviour,
With God the Father one,

The tokens of his favour

Are now to man made known;
An ante-past of heaven

Thou dost in me reveal,
Attest my sins forgiven,

And my salvation seal.

3 The' indubitable witness
Of thy own Deity,

Thou giv'st my soul its fitness
Thy glorious face to see:
Thy comforts, gifts, and graces,

My largest thoughts transcend,
And challenge endless praises,
When faith in sight shall end.


1st P. M. 6 lines 8s.

The signature of divine love.
WHEN shall I hear the inward voice,

Pardon, and peace, and heavenly joys,
Attend the promised Comforter:
O come, and righteousness divine,
And Christ, and all with Christ, are mine.

2 O that the Comforter would come,
Nor visit as a transient guest;
But fix in me his constant home,

And keep possession of my breast;
And make my soul his loved abode,
The temple of indwelling God.

3 Come, Holy Ghost, my heart inspire;
Attest that I am born again;
Come, and baptize me now with fire,
Nor let thy former gifts be vain :
I cannot rest in sins forgiven;
Where is the earnest of my heaven?

4 Where the indubitable seal,

That ascertains the kingdom mine?
The powerful stamp I long to feel,-
The signature of love divine;
O shed it in my heart abroad,
Fulness of love, of heaven, of God!

Shall life and power impart;
Give me the faith that casts out sin,
And purifies the heart.

For every sinner free;

In Jesus I believe, and shall
Believe myself to him.

Accomplish'd in the change of mine;
And plunge me, every whit made whole,
In all the depths of love divine.

And waits to prove thine utmost will;
The promise by thy mercy made,

Thou canst, thou wilt, in me fulfil. 4 No more I stagger at thy power,

Or doubt thy truth, which cannot move: Hasten the long-expected hour, And bless me with thy perfect love.

And never more to sin give place,
And never grieve thee more.

A pledge of liberty.

And he will soon appear.

What can withstand his will?
The counsel of his grace in me
He surely shall fulfil.

Of paradise possess'd,

And everlasting rest.

A rest where pure enjoyment reigns,
And thou art loved alone:

Is fix'd on things above;
Where fear, and sin, and grief expire,
Cast out by perfect love.

3 0 that I now the rest might know, Believe, and enter in :

Now, Saviour, now the power bestow,
And let me cease from sin.

To me the rest of faith impart,—
The Sabbath of thy love.
