Thy saving strength, O Lord, restore, :,,.

And guard me that I fall no more.
6.4Tho' I have griev'd thy Spirit, Lord,, .

His help and comfort ftill afford:
And let a wretch come near thy throne

To plead the merits of thy Son.
5 My soul lies humbled in the dust,

And owns thy dreadful fentence just :'.
Look down, O Lord, with pitying eye,

And save the foul condemn’d to die. Is 6 Then will I teach the world thy ways,

Sinners Thall learn thy sov’reign grace:
I'll lead them to my Saviour's blood,

And they fhall praise a pard’ning God.: . 70 may thy love inspire my tongue, ',,1.

Salvation shall be all my song;
And all my pow'rs shall join to bless
The Lord, my strength and righteousness.

I DROOPING foul, fhake off thy fears, ..

Fearful soul, be Atrong, be bold,
Tarry till the Lord appears, and i

Never, never quit thy hold;
Murmur pot at his delay,

Dare not set thy God a time,
Calmly for his coming tay, ,
Leave it, leave it all to hini.

3. Ev'ry one that seeks thall find :

Ev'ry one that alks shall have;
Chrift, the Saviour of mankind,

Willing, able all to save,
I fhall his falvation fee,

I in faith on fesus call,
I from sin fhall be set free,

Perfe&tly set free from all.
4 Lord, my time is in thine hand;

Weak and helpless as I am,
Surely thou canst make me stand;

I believe in Jesu's name:
Saviour in temptation thou,

Thou haft say'd me heretofore,
Thou from fin dost save me now;

Thou shalt save me evermore.

HYMN XL. 1 W HY should the children of a king :

Go mourning all their days?
Great Comforter, descend, and bring

The tokens of thy grace!
2. Dort thou not dwell in all thy saints,

And seal the heirs of heav'n?
When wilt thou banish my complaints,

And Thew my sins forgiv'n?
3 Affure my conscience of her part

In the Redeemer's blood;
And bear thy witness with my heart,

That I am born of God.
A Thou art the earnest of his love,

The pledge of joys to come;
May thy bleit, wings, Celestial Dove,
Safely convey me home.

HYMN XLI. I M y drowsy pow'rs, why neep ye fo?

Awake, my sluggish foul! Nothing hath half thy work to do; !

Yet nothing's half so dull. 2 Go to the ants:--for one poor grain:

See how they toil and strive;
Yet we, who have a heav'o l' obtain,

How negligent we live! 3 We, for whole sake all nature stands,

And stars their courses move, We, for whose guards the angel bands,"

Come Äying from above : * 4 We, for whom God the Son came down,

And labour'd for our good,
How careless to secure that crown

He purchas'd with his Blood !
5 Lord, thall we live fo Nuggith Nill, V

And rever' a&t out parts ? Come, Holy Dove, from th' heav'nly hill,

And warm our frozen hearts. 6 Give us with active warmth to move,

With vig'rous fouls to rise, . With 'hands of faith, and wings of love,

To fly and take the prize."


I Happy foul, that free from harms
Rests within his shepherd's arıns!
Who his quiet shall inoleft ?
Who shali violate his reft ?

Jesus doth his spirit bear,
Jerus takes his ev'ry care :
He who found the wand'ring Theep,

Jesus ftill delights to keep. 2 O that I might so believe,

Stedfastly to Jesus cleave;
On his only love rely,
Smile at the destroyer nigh;
Free from fin and servile fear,
Have my Jesus ever near; i
All his care rejoice to prove,

All his paradise of love.
3 Jesus, reek thy wand'ring Theep,

Bring me back, and lead, and keep;
Take on thee my ev'ry care;
Bear me, on thy bosom bear.
Let me know my shepherd's voice,
More and more in thee rejoice ;
More and more of thee receive,

Ever in thy spirit live.
4 Live, till all thy life I know,

Perfect through my Lord below,
Gladly then from earth remove,
Gather'd to the fold above;
O that I at last may stand
With the sheep at thy right-hand;
Take the crown so freely giv'n;
Enter in, by thee, to heav'n.

I MAKER, Saviour of mankind,

Who hast on me bestow'd
An immortal soul, design'd
"To be the house of God:

Come, and now reside in me,

Never, never to remove t abi Make me just, and good, like thee,

And full of pow'r and love.
2 Bid me in thy image rise,

A saint, a creature new ;
True, and merciful, and wise,

And pure, and happy too. •
This thy primitive design,

That I should in thee be blest ;
Should within thy arms divine?

For ever, ever reft. *****
3 Let thy will on me be done ;

Fulál my heart's desire; ..
Thee to know, and love alone,

And rise in raptures higher :
Thee descending on a cloud, -

When with ravilh'd eyes I fee,
Then I thall be fill'd with God

To all eternity !

I God of all grace and majesty,

Supremely great and good,
If I have mercy found in thee,

Through the atoning blood :
The guard of all thy mercies give,

And to my pardon join
A fear, left I should ever grieve;

Thy gracious Spirit divine.
If mercy is indeed with thee, ".

May 1 obedient prove,
Nor'e'er abuse my liberty,

Of lin against thy love :
