2 If noisy war or strife abound,

We grieve the peaceful dove, His gracious influence is found

In paths of truth and love.
3 Should we indulge one secret sin,

Or disregard his laws,
His succour and support divine,

Th' heavenly guest withdraws. 4 To sin, O leave us not a prey,

Nor yet to Satan's hand:
But guide us in the heav'nly way,

T' our Emmanuel's land.

108 S. M. The witness of the Spirit.

ANON.

1
SPIRIT of truth, come down,

Reveal the things of God,
Make thou to us Cbrist's Godhead known,

Apply his precious blood. 2 His merits glorify

That each may clearly see Jesus, who did for sinners die,

Hath surely died for me.

3 No man can truly say,

That Jesus is the Lord
Unless thou take the veil away,

And breathe the living word: 4 Then, only then, we feel

Our interest in his blood,
And cry with joy unspeakable,

“Thou art my Lord my God!"

109 8. 6. 8. The Day of Pentecost.

COTTERILL,

[ocr errors]

ET songs of praises fill the sky!

Christ, our ascended Lord,
Sends down his spirit from on bigh,

According to his word:
All hail the day of Pentecost,

The coming of the Holy Ghost?
2 The Spirit by his heavenly breath,

New life creates within ;
He quickens sinners from the death

Of trespasses and sin:
All hail the day of Pentecost,
The coming of the Holy Ghost!

3 The things of Christ the Spirit takes,

And shows them unto men ;
The fallen soul his temple makes,

God's image stamps again:
All hail the day of Pentecost,

The coming of the Holy Ghost! 4 Come Holy Spirit, from above,

With thy celestial fire;
Come, and with flames of zeal and love,

Our hearts and tongues inspire:
Be this our day of Pentecost,
The coming of the Holy Ghost !

S. M. The Descent of the Spirit.

MONTGOMERY.

1
LORD God, the Holy Ghost,

In this accepted hour,
As on the day of Pentecost,

Descend in all thy pow'r: 2 We meet with one accord

In our appointed place,
And wait the promise of our Lord
The spirit of all grace.

3 Like mighty rushing wind

Upon the waves beneath,
Move with one impulse every mind,

One soul, one feeling breathe: 4 The young, the old inspire

With wisdom from above :
And give us hearts and tongues of fire
To pray, and praise, and love.

7's. The Song of the Cherubim.

BOWRING.
I SEE th' glorious Cherubim

Thronging round th'ETERNAL's throne;
Hark! they sing their boly hymn
To the unknown Three in ONE.
All-supporting Deity,

Praise-eternal praise to thee! 2 Rest, ye worldly tumults, rest!

Here let all be peace and joy ;-
Grief, no longer rend our breast;
Tears, no more bedew our eye:
All-supporting Deity,
Praise--eternal praise to thee!

[ocr errors]

3 Heav'n directed spirit, rise

To the temple of the skies !
Join the ranks of angels bright,
Near th' ETERNAL's dazzling light:
All-supporting Deity,
Praise--eternal praise to thee!

7's. The Trinity adored. ANON,

I HOLY, holy, holy, Lord !

Self-existent Deity,
By the hosts of heav'n ador'd
Teach us how to worship thee.
Only uncreated mind,
Wonders in thy nature meet;
Perfect unity combin'd

With society complete.
2 All perfection dwells in thee,

Now to us obscurely known,
Three in one, and one in three,
Great Jehovah, God alone!
Be our all, O Lord, divine!
Father, Saviour, vital breath!
Body, spirit, soul, be thine,
Now, and at, and after death.
