While I have breath to pray or praise ; This work Mall make my heart rejoice, And spend the remnant of my days.

HYMN LXXXIX. . . THOU, to whore all-Searching sight. The darkness thineth as the light, Search, prove my heart, it pants for thee

O burit these bonds, and set it free! & Wash out its stains, refine its drofs,

Nail my affections to the cross!
Hallow each thought; let all within

Be clean, as thou, my Lord, art clean. 3 If in this darkfome wild | stray,

Be thou my light, be thou my way;
No foes, no violence I fear,

No fraud, while thou, my God, art near. 4 When rising floods my foot o'erflow, When finks my heart in waves of woe, : Jesu, thy timely aid impart,

And raise my head, and cheer my heart, & Saviour, where'er thy steps I see, Dauntless, uncir'd I follow thee! *** O let thy hand fupport me ftill, "17

And lead me to thy holy hill voda 6 If rough and thoroy be the way, to My ftrength proportion to my day . Till toil, and grief, and pain shall ceafe, i Where all is calm, and joy, and peace,

But I hear a voice say,

Without money ye may
Receive it, whoever have nothing to pay,

Who on Jesus relies,
Without money or price,

putu The pearl of forgiveness and holiness buys.

The blefing is free,

So, Lord, let it bei
I yield that thy love should be given to me.

No other good below. ;

Where all who their Shepherd obey,
Are fed, on thy borom 're clin'd, T

Are screen'd from the heat of the day.. 2 Ah! shew me that happient place,

The place of thy people's abode,"
Where faints in an echtafy gaze, ,

And hang on a crucify'd God: "
Thy love for a finner declare,

Thy passion and death on the tree;-
My spirit to Calvary bear,

To suffer and triumph with thee. 3 'Tis there with the lambs of thy flock,

There only I covet to rest,
To lie at the foot of the rock, "

Or rise to be hid in thy breast;
'Tis there I would always abide, .

And never a moment depart ;
Conceal'd in the cleft of thy fide,

Eternally held in thy heart. 2
