God lov'd the church, and gave his Son
To drink the cup of wrath:
And Jefus faith he'll caft out none,
That come to him by faith.

105 8. 4. RAY'S Col..~


HARK; that the

ARK, hark! the gospel-trumpet sounds,

Pardon and peace by Jesus' blood,

Rebels are reconcil'd to God,
And led into the heav'nly road,
By grace divine !

Come finners hear the joyful news,
Nor longer dare the grace refufe;
Mercy and juftice here combine,
Goodness and truth harmonious join,
While boundless love in ev'ry line
Invites you near.

Ye faints in glory, ftrike the lyre;
Ye mortals, catch the facred fire;
Let both the Savior's love proclaim,
And spread abroad his matchless fame
For ever worthy is the Lamb
Of endless praife.

106. Helmfley T. HART.
Come and welcome to Jefus Chrift. {


NOME, ye finners, vile and wretched,
Weak and wounded, fick and poor!

Jefus ready ftands to fave you,
Full of pity join'd with pów'r :-
He is able,

He is willing: doubt no more!

Let not confcience make you linger,
Nor of fitness fondly dream;
All the fitness he requireth,

Is to feel your need of him :
This he gives you :

'Tis the Spirit's rifing beam.

Come, ye weary, heavy laden,
Loft and ruin'd by the fall;
If you tarry till you're better,
You will never come at all
Not the righteous,

Sinners Jefus came to call,

View him proftrate in the garden;
On the ground your Maker lies!
On the bloody tree behold him ;`
Hear him cry, before he dies,
"It is finish'd:

Sinner, will not this fuffice?

Lo, th' incarnate God afcended
Pleads the virtue of his blood:
Venture on him, venture wholly
Let no other truft intrude;
None but Jefus

Can do helplefs Sinners good.

Saints and angels join'd in concert,
Sing the praises of the Lamb;
While the blissful feats of heaven
Sweetly echo with his name.

Sinners here may fing the fame.

107. As the 148th. TOPLADY'S Col... The Jubilee.

BLOW ye the trumpet, blow

The gladly folemn found!

Let all the nations know,
To earth's remoteft bound,
The year of jubilee is come;
Return, ye ransom'd finners, home.
Ye, who have fold for nought
Your heritage above;
Shall have it back, unbought,


The gift of Jefus' love;

The year of jubilee is come;

Return, ye ransom'd finners, home.

Ye flaves of fin and hell,
Your liberty receive;
And fafe in Jefus dwell,
And bleft in Jefus live;

The year of jubilee is come;
Return, ye ranfom'd finners, home.

The gospel trumpet hear,

The news of pard'ning grace': Ye happy fouls, draw near, Behold your Savior's face :

The year of jubilee is come;
Return, ye ranfom'd finners, home.
Jefus our great High Priest

Has full atonement made :
Ye weary fpirits, reft;

Ye mournful fouls, be glad!
The year of jubilee is come;
Return, ye ranføm'd finners, home....
