4. JESU, LORD, for this we wait,

Till thine Image we regain : Wilt thou not our Souls create ?

Saviour, shall our Faith be vain! If we do in Thee believe,

Now the Second Gift impart, Now th' Abiding Witness give,

Give us now the Perfect Heart.

5. Surely He will not delay,

If we patiently endure, Will not empty send away

Sinners hungry, mournful, poor. JESUS wept ! and still doth weep,

Human Misery to behold, Pities now His wand'ring Sheep,

Longs to bring us to His Fold.

6“ Children, have you ought to eat ? "

(Kindly ask's our Careful God) Jesu's Flesh indeed is Meat,

Drink indeed is Jesu's Blood : Drink, and eat my Well-belov'd,

Lean, He cries, upon my Breast, Till ye All, from Earth remov'd,

Share with Me the Marriage-Feaft.



At Parting.
Lest be the dear, Uniting Love

That will not let us part:
Our Bodies


far off remove,
We still are join'd in Heart.
2. Joir'd in One Spirit to our Head,

When He appoints we go,
And fill in Jesu's Footsteps tread,

And do His ink below.

3. O let us ever walk in Him,

And Nothing know beside, Nothing defire, Nothing esteem

But JESUS Crucified.

4. Closer, and closer let us cleave

To His belov'd Embrace, Expect His Fulness, to receive,

And Grace to answer Grace.


While thus we walk with Christ in Light

Who shall our Souls disjoin,
Souls, which Himself vouchsafes t' unite

In Fellowship Divine !

6. We All are One who Him receive,

And each with each agree,
In Him the One, The Truth, we live,

Bleft Point of Unity!

7. Partakers of the Saviour's Grace,

The same in Mind and Heart, 1991 . Nor Joy, nor Grief, nor Time, nor Place,

Nor Life, nor Death can part:

8. But let us haften to the Day

Which shall our Flesh rcitore,
When Death shall all be done away,
And Bodies part no more.

Et the World lamentand grieve.

At Parting with a Friend,
Thee we back to Jesus give,

We chearfully commend

And only Jesus know.

Still thy Shield, and Buckler prove,
Keep thy Soul in perfect Peace,

And Everlasting Love.

3. Love the dear Atoning Lamb,

And Us for Jesu's Sake ; Let us Each, in Jesu's Name,

Of Others mention make; Present thro' the Spirit's Prayer,

And love Him to the End : , Faithfully on Thee we call,

Perfect Him, and Us in One, With Us, by Us, in Us, All

Thy only will be done.
