3 Power o'er the world, the flesh, and sin, We through thy gracious Spirit feel: Full power the victory to win,
And answer all thy righteous will.
4 Pure love to God thy members find;
1st P. M. 6 lines 8s.
The witness of entire consecration.
COME, Holy Ghost, all-quick'ning fire,
Drawn by the lure of strong desire,
O come and consecrate my breast;
If now in thee begin to live,
Give me thyself, forever give:
3 Eager for thee I ask and pant,
Till all my hallow'd soul is thine; Plunged in the Godhead's deepest sea, And lost in thy immensity.
4 My peace, my life, my comfort thou, My treasure and my all thou art; True witness of my sonship, now
Engraving pardon on my heart: Seal of my sins in Christ forgiven, Earnest of love, and pledge of heaven.
PRAYER AND INTERCESSION.
Design of prayer.
The blessings God designs to give:
In every case, still watch and pray.
But pray with faith in Jesus' name.
2 Prayer is the burden of a sigh,— The falling of a tear,
What is prayer?
PRAYER is the soul's sincere desire,
The motion of a hidden fire
That trembles in the breast.
The upward glancing of an eye,
3 Prayer is the simplest form of speech
4 Prayer is the Christian's vital breath,
5 Prayer is the contrite sinner's voice,
6 O Thou, by whom we come to God,
tide of woes, every stormy wind that blows,
There is a calm, a sure retreat;
2 There is a place, where Jesus sheds
3 There is a scene, where spirits blend, Where friend holds fellowship with friend; Though sunder'd far, by faith they meet, Around one common mercy-seat.
4 Ah! whither could we flee for aid,
5 There, there on eagles' wings we soar,
1st P. M. 6 lines 88.
Lord, teach us to pray.
JESUS, thou sov'reign Lord of all,—
The same through one eternal day,Attend thy feeblest foll'wer's call,
And O, instruct us how to pray! Pour out the supplicating grace, And stir us up to seek thy face.
2 We cannot think a gracious thought,
3 Come in thy pleading Spirit down To us who for thy coming stay; Of all thy gifts we ask but one,
We ask the constant power to pray: Indulge us, Lord, in this request, Thou canst not then deny the rest.
Pray without ceasing.
(HEPHERD Divine, our wants relieve
To all thy tempted foll'wers give
2 Long as our fiery trials last,-
3 Till thou thy perfect love impart;
4 I will not let thee go, unless
5 Then let me on the mountain-top
The Lord's Prayer.
Father, God, who art in heaven,
Thy kingdom come; thy will be done
2 Give us this day our daily bread;
The Lord's Prayer.
3 Into temptation lead us not;
2 Thy kingdom come; thy will
Thy name be hallow'd far and near;
Thy perfect law above.
