Born, that man no more may dle>
Born to raises trite sorts os earth, . ''
Born to give them second birth-
Come, desire os nations, come,
Fix in us thy humble home;
Rise, the woman's conquVmg seed,
Bruise in us the serpent's head:
Adam's likeness now efface,
Stamp thine image in its place;
Second Ad.im srom above,
Reinstate us ia thy love. '*

To cut the sig-tree down; The pity os our Lord,'

Cry'd, " Let it still alone;" The Fathfer mild inclines his ear,

And spares US yet another year.

Or. us, a io iger ipice:
Thou didst in our behalf appear,
And lo! we see another year!

5 Then dig ab-ut our root,

Break up our sallow {T'und,
Anu let our gracious s uit ,

To thy great praise abound;
O let us all thy ;. rat le declare,
And sruit u: to persection bear;

HYMN CCXXXII.

s 1 and did my Saviour bleed?
And did roy Sov'reigu die?
Wou'd he devote that sacred head
For such a worm as I?"

2 Was it sor crimes that I had done

He groan'd upon the tree f
Amazing pity! grace unknown r
And love beyond degree!

3 Well might the san in darkness hide.

And shut his glories in;
When Christ the mighty Maker dy'd
For man, the creature's sin!

4 Thus might I hide my blushing sace,

While his dear cross appears; Dissolve my heart in thanksulness, And melt mine eyes to tears.

5 But drops os gries can ne'er repay

The debt os love I owe; Here, Lord, I give mysels away, 'Tis ail that I can do.
