I cannot in Judgment stand :

Raise; or flay me with Thy Breath, Guilty I shall feel Thy Hand,

Guilty of Eternal Death.

5. Trembling I expect my Fate,

If Thou as my Judge appear ; If Thou art my Advocate,

Jesus, What have I to fear? JESUS is the Sinners Friend,

Sinners Jesus came to fave, JESUS, I on Thee depend,

Peace, and Power in Thee I have.

6. I the Golden Scepter see

(Self-despairing as I was) Now, ev'n now reach'd out to me

I receive Thy Pard'ning Grace. Of Thy Grace I cannot doubt ;

Sinners to Thy Wounds who fly, Thou in no wise wilt cast out :

Lo! I come, The Sinner I!

7. Thou shalt make me white as Snow,

Tho' my Soul be black as Hell. Never from Thy Cross I go,

Safe within Thy Wounds I dwell. Other Refuge have I none,

None do I desire beside ; Friend of Sinners, I am One,

Save me, who for Me haft died.

Believe in the LORD JESUS and thou shalt be saved. Acts xvi. 31. WHA

Har shall I do, my God, my God,

I ak in Name. Unfanctified, and unrenew'd

I still remain the same.

2. Sim

2. Sin, only Sin in me I find;

I cannot subject be
To thy Command; my Carnal Mind
Is Enmity to Thee.

3. But thou can'ft wash the Leper clean,

The Stone to Flesh Convert,
Can'st make the Ethiop change his Skin,

And purify my Heart
4. Then only, when by Grace renew'd

My Will with Thine shall suit: O make the Tree of Nature good,

And good shall be its Fruit.

5. I ftrive in all I do to please

With endless Grief and Pain,
But cannot, LORD, from finning cease,

Till I am born again.
6. With thee my Virtue is but Vice,

My Good is Specious Ill, 'Tis Self, 'tis Nature in Disguise,

And I am Carnal still.

7. No Work of mine, or Word, or Thoughs

Thy Judgment can abide,
Thy Glory, LORD, I never fought,

For all my Soul is Pride.

8. What have I then wherein to trust?

How must I come to Thee!
Foul as I am, condemn'd and lost,

Thy Son hath died for Me.

9. Jesus hath died that I might live,

Might live to God alone, In Him Eternal Life receive,

And be in Spirit One.

10. Saviout

10. Saviour, I thank Thee for the Grace,

The Gift Unspeakable,
And wait, with Arms of Faith t'embrace,

And all Thy Love to feel. :

11. My Soul breaks out in strong Desire

The Perfect Bliss to prove, My longing Soul is all on fire

To be diffoly'd in Love.

12. Give me Thyself, from every Boaft,
From
every

Wish set free:
Let all I am in Thee be lost,

But give Thyself to Me.

13. Thy Gifts, alas! cannot fuffice,

Unless Thyself be given,
Thy Presence makes my Paradise,

And where Thou art is Heaven.

The WOMAN of CANAAN. "I

A Potsherd of the Earth,
A poor guilty Worm am I,

A Canaanite by Birth :
Save me from this Tyranny,
From all the Power of Satan save,
Mercy, Mercy upon me

Thou Son of David have.

2. Still Thou answerest not a Word

To my repeated Prayer ;
Hear Thy own Disciples, LORD,

Who in my Sorrows share,
O let them prevail with Thee
To grant the Blessing which I crave :

Mercy, Mercy, &c.

3. Send

3. Send, O send me now away,

By granting my Request,
Still I follow Thee, and pray,

And will not let Thee rest,
Ever crying after Thee,
Till Thou my Helplesness relieve,

Mercy, Mercy, &c.

To the Sheep of Israel's Fold

Thou in Thy Flesh waft sent,
But the Gentiles now behold

In Thee their Covenant.
See me then, with Pity fee,
A Sinner, whom Thou cam'ft to save;

Mercy, Mercy, &c.

5. Still to Thee, my God, I come,

And Mercy I implore,
Thee (but how shall I prefume)

Thee trembling I adore,
Dare not stand before Thy Face,
But lowly at Thy Feet I fall,
Help me, Jesu, thew Thy Grace!

Thy Grace is free for All.

6. Still I cannot part with Thee, I will not let Thee

go, Mercy, Mercy unto me,

O Son of David Thew,
Vileft of the finful Race,
On 'Thee inportunate I call,
Help me, Jesu, shew Thy Grace,

Thy Grace is free for All.

7. Nothing am I in Thy Sight,

Nothing have I to plead, Unto Dogs it is not right

To cast the Children's Bread : Yet the Dogs the Crumbs may eat, That from their Master's Table fall, Let the Fragments be my Meat,

Thy Grace is free for All,

K

8. Give me, LORD, the Victory,

My Heart's Desire fulfil,
Let it now be done to me

According to my Will,
Give me living Bread to eat,
And say, in Answer to my Call,
“ Canaanite, Thy Faith is great,

" My Grace is free for All." 9. If Thy Grace for All is free,

Thy Call now let me hear,
Shew this Token upon me,

And bring Salvation near ;
Now the Gracious Word repeat,
The Word of Healing to my Soul,
“ Canaanite, thy Faith is great,

Thy Faith hath made Thee whole.

The Pool of BETHESDA.
Esu, take my Sins away,

And make me know Thy Name,
Thou art now, as Yesterday,

And evermore the same:
Thou my True Bethesda be;
I know within Thy Arms is Room,
All the World may unto Thee,

Their House of Mercy, come.

2. See the Porches

open

wide!
Thy Mercy All may prove,
All the World is Juftified

By Universal Love.
Halt, and withered when they lie,
And fick, and impotent, and blind,
Sinners may in Thee espy

The Saviour of Mankind.
