HY MN XXXII. Father of Jesus Christ the just,
My friend and Advocate with thee, Pity a soul that fain would trust
in him who liv'd and dy'd for me : But only thou canst make him known
And in my heart reveal thy son. 2 If, drawn by thine alluring grace,
My want of living faith I feel,
What flesh and blood can ne'er reveal
And call my darkness into day. : 3 The gift unspeakable impart ;
Command the light of faith to shine ;
And fill me with the life divine :
For me offer'd up,
The blood thou hast thed,
For me let it plead, And declare thou hast dy'd in thy murderer's stead.
2 Now, now let me know.. ;)
Its virtue below; Let it wash me, and I shall be whiter than (now,
Let it hallow my heart,
And throughly convert,

My weakness to hide,

With the Father above,

A finner o'erwhelm'd with his load; . . The sense of acceptance to give,
And sprinkle his heart with thy blood 2 With me if of old thou haft ftrove, s
And strangely withheld from my fin, And try'd, by the lure of thy love, frutas · My worthiless affections to win : The work of thy mercy revive
Thy uttermost mercy,exert; And kindly continue to strive, . And hold till I yield thee my heart. 3 Thy call if I ever have known,
And figh'd from myself to get free ; * And groan'd the unspeakable groan,
· And long'd to be happy in thee;
Thy peace to my conscience reveal;
And give me my pardon to feel! 4. If when I had put thee to grief,
And madly to folly return'd,
And lifted me up as I mourn'd: ..
Moft pitiful Spirit of grace,
Relieve me again, and restore, My spirit in holiness raise,
To fall and to suffer no more. '. 5 If now I lament after God,
And gasp for a drop of thy love,
For ine to receive from above :
True witness of mercy divine, And make me thy permanent home,
And seal me eternally thine!
ThoʻI have done thee such despite, 2.1
Nor take thine'éverlasting flight. 2. Though I have moft'unfaithful been
of all whoe'er thy grace receivid, . Ten thousand times thy goodness feen, ::
Ten thousand times chy goodness griev'd, . Yet, o! the chief of finners spare, ..
In honour of my great High-Prieť, Nor in thy' righteous anger (wear em

From now, O Lord, relieve my woes; * Into thy reft of love receive,
And bless me with thy calon repose." s From now my weary soul release,
Up.raise me with thy gracious hand,
And bring me to the promis'd land,
And now made willing to return,
For thee, not without hope, I mourn;
A friend before the throne of Love.
More full of grace than I of fin,
Open thine arms and take me in,
And love the faithless finner still. 3 Thou know'st the way to bring me back,
My fallen spirit to restore;
Forgive, and bid me fin no more!
And make my heart a house of pray’r. 4 Ah! give me, Lord, the tender heart,"
That trembles at th' approach of fin!
Implant and root it deep within !
O Son of Man, I fly,
For the storm is high!
A covert from the tempest be!
The form of fin I fee.
2 Welcome as the water spring
As a great rock extends its shade,
And screen my naked head. 3 In the time of my distress
Thou hast my succour been,
To save me in the trying hour!
And Thield me with thy pow'r.
The work thou haft begun :
My shadow from the sun

But blot their mem'ry from thy bock, 2 Create my nature pure within,
And form my roul averse to sip :
Nor hide thy prefence from my heart, 3 I cannot live without thy light,
Cast out and banin d from thy fight;
