5 Look, as wlien thine eye pursu'd
The first apoflate man,
And bade him rise again;
Redeem me by thy grace alone;
· And break my heart of stone. 9 Look, as when thy languid eye
Was clos'd that we might live;
My Saviour gafp'd) " forgive;"
He turns, and looks and cries, "'Tis done !"
Their works of righteousness;
Am freely fav'd by grace;
This, only this is all my plea,
But Jefus dy'd for me!
Like Jordan's swelling ítream,
And give the praise to him :
Enjoy their full felicity: I the chief of finners am,
But Jesus dy'd for me ! 3 Bleft are they, entirely blest,
Who can in him rejoice, Lean on his beloved breast,
And hear the Bridegroom's voice;
Meanest follower of the Lamb,
His steps I at a distance fee :
But Jesus dy'd for me!
And thou in me malt live;
O that it now may kindled be!
HYMN XXIV. 1 O THAT I could my Lord receive,
Who did the world redeem! Who gave his life that I might live
A life conceal'd in him 2 O that I could the blessings prove,
My heart's extreme desire;
And in his arms expire.
That kept by mercy's pow'r, I may from ev'ry evil ceare,
And never grieve thee more ! 4. Now, if thy gracious will it be,
Ev'n now my sins remove,
By thy victorious love. 5 In answer to ten thousand pray’rs,
Thou pard’ning God descend, Number me with salvation's heirs,
My fins and troubles end. 6 Nothing I ask, or want beside,
of all in earth or heav'n ; But let me feel thy blood apply'd, . And live, and died forgiv'n.
HYMN XXV. I W ith glorious clouds encompast round,
Whom angels dimly fee, Will the unsearchable bé found,
Or God appear to me?
Himself to worms impart ?
And speak it to my heart. 3 In manifefted love explain
Thy wonderful design;
The streaming blood divine ?
And live and die below,
And my Redeemer know?
The heights and depths of grace,
That dear disfigur'd face. 6 Before my eyes of faith confert,
Stand forth a Naughter'd Lamb; And wrap me in thy crimion veft,
And tell me all thy name. 7 Jehovah in thy person show,
And feel the blood apply'd,
. Whom angels dimly ree; And gaze, transported at the right,
To all eternity.
HYMN XXVI. i Jusu, if fill the same thou art,
If all thy promises are sure,
And make me rich, for I am poor :
The kingdom of an inward heav'n. 2 Thou hast pronounc'd the mourners blert;
And, is! for thee I ever mourn : · I cannot ; no, I will not reft,
Till thou my only rest return;
And I receive the Comforter. . 3 Where is the blessedness bestow'd
On all that hunger after thee?.
See the poor fainting finners, fee,
And fill me with thy righteousness. 4. Ah ! Lord if thou art in that figh,
Then' hear thyself within me pray; Hear in my heart thy Spirit's cry,
Mark what my lab'ring foul would say : Answer the deep unutter'd groan,
And Mew that thou and I are one. 5 Shine on thy work, disperse the gloom; .
Light in thy light I then shall see : .
· Glory divine is ris'n on thee:
“ Look up, for thou shalt weep no more." 6 Lord, I believe the promise sure,
And trust thou wilt not long delay:
Upon thy word myself I stay;
• HYMN XXVII. 1.1 Jesus, if ftill thou art to day
As yesterday the same,
The virtue of thy name.
Thy needy creatures good;
Be all thy wonders fhow'd.
Thy miracles repeat, ' ,'
A leper at thy feet. .
I fink beneath my fin;
Of thine can make me clean.
Open, O Lord, my ear;'
And lift them up in pray’r.
My voice I cannot raise ;
The dumb fhall fing thy praise.
Give, and my strength employ :
The lame Mall leap for joy.
And dark I am within ;
