MAY the grace of Christ our Saviour,

And the Father's boundless love, With the Holy Spirit's favour,

Rest upon us from above. Thus may we abide in union

With each other, and the Lord; And possess in sweet communion,

Joys which earth can ne'er afford. 265 Warnwaarna

SINNERS, will ye scorn the message,

Sent, inr mercy, from above?
Ev'ry sentence, O how tender!
Ev'ry line is full of love!

Listen to it,
Ev'ry line is full of love!
Hear the heralds of the gospel,

News from Zion's King proclaim,

To each rebel sinner, pardon,
Free forgiveness in his name !

How important !
Free forgiveness in his name !
Who hath our report believed ?

Who received the joyful word ?
Who embrac'd the news of pardon,
Offered to you by the Lord ?

Can you slight it, Offer'd to you by the Lord ? O ye angel's, hov'ring round us,

Waiting spirits, speed your way; Hasten to the court of heaven, Tidings bear without delay;

Rebel sinners
Glad, the message will obey.

ON what has now been sown,
Thy blessing, Lord; bestow;
The power is thine alone,

To make it spring and grow :
Do thou the gracious harvest raise,
And thou, alone, shalt have the praise.

'TIS religion that can give
Sweetest pleasures while we live ;
'Tis religion must supply
Solid comfort, when we die.

If religion be our choice,
Let us sing with heart and voice ;
After death its joys shall be

Lasting as eternity. 269

OF thy love, some gracious token,

Grant us, Lord, before we go;
Bless thy word which has been spoken,

Life and peace on all bestow :
When we join the world again,
Let our hearts with thee remain :

o direct us,

And protect us !
Till we gain the heavenly shore,
Where thy people want no more.

Lock. THIS God is the God we adore,

Our constant unchangeable friend, Whose love is as large as his power,

And knows neither measure nor end. 'Tis Jesus, the first and the last,

Whose Spirit shall guide us safe homé ;/ We'll praise him for all that is past,

And trust him for all that's to come. 271

HRIST and his cross is all our theme;
The myst'ries that we speak

Are scandal in the Jews esteem,

And folly to the Greek.
But souls enlightened from above,

With joy receive the word ;
They see what wisdom, power, and love

Sbine in their dying Lord.
The vital savour of his name

Restores their fainting breath; But unbelief perverts the same

To guilt, despair, and death. 'Till God diffuse his graces down,

Like showers of heavenly rain, In vain Apollos sows the ground,

And Paul may plant in vain. 272 warnananda

Hanover. WHAT creatures beside are favour'd like us? Forgiven, supplied, and banqueted thus; By God, our good Father, who gave us his Son, And sent him to gather his children in one. Salvation's of God, the fruit of free grace, Upon us bestowed before the world was: God from everlasting be bless'd, and again, Bless'd to everlasting, Amen, and Amen. 273

Mariners. LORD, dismiss us with thy blessing,

Fill our hearts with joy and peace;


Let us all, thy love possessing,
Triumph in redeeming'grace :

O refresh us,
Travelling through this wilderness.
Thanks we give, and adoration,

For the gospel'si joyful sound;
May the fruits of thy, salvation
In our hearts and lives abound :

May thy, presence
With us evermore be found.
So whene'er the signal's given

Us from earth to call away,
Borne on angels: wings to heaven,
Glad to leave our comb'rous clay,

May we, ready,
Rise, and reign in endless day

Greenwich New.
TO thee our wants are known,

From thee are all our powers;
Accept what is thine own,

And pardon what is ours:
Our praises, Lord, and prayers receive,
And to thy word a blessing give.
O grant that each of us
· Now met before thee here,
May meet together thus,

When thou and thine appear
