A HYMN to the Holy Ghost.

Extracted from the Ordination-Ossice.

COME, Holy Ghost, our Souls inspire,
And lighten with celestial Fire,
Thou the anointing Spirit art,
Who dost thyfev'nfold Gifts impart.
Thy blessed Unction from above,
Is Comfort, Life, and Fire of Love:
Enable with perpetual Light,
The Dulnefs, of our blindedSight
Anoint and Chear our soiled Face
With the-Abundance of thy Grace.
Keeper our-Foes, give Peace at Home:
Where thwart Guide, no III can come,
Teach us to know the Father, Son,
And Thee, of both, to be but one;
That through the Ages all along,
This, this may be out-endless Song:

Praise God, from whom all Blessings flow.
Praise him all Creatures here below;
Praise him above, ye heavenly Host,
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

HYMN I.
To Believers.

SOME Seraph lend your heav'nly Tongue,
Pr Harps of golden String, .

That we may raise a lofty Sone . To Christ th'Eternal King,

Who can have greater Cause to Praise

Their Saviour and their God!
Than they, whom Jesus hath redeem'd

And wash'd in his dear Blood. .

In Psalms and Hyrx^ speak forth his Praise,

Let ransoms Sinners sing,
In loudest Songs of Triumph, cry

Hosannas to our Kino-..

O that each here had Angels Tongues,

Our Jesus to adore;
That we like them might always praise

His Goodness, Love, and Power.

B "Then

Then we will sing, and never cease

His Glory to proclaim; Who for our Souls such Wonders wrought,

All Praise attend his Name.

To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,

Eternal Praise be given,
By all that dwell upon the Earth,

And all the Host of Heaven.

HYMN II.
J Place of Worship. ..

HOW awful, Lord, thy House appears!
When Thou in Majesty draw'st near,
Make this, O God, a House of Prayer,
O Lord, vouchsafe thy Presence here.

May all that come to Worship here,
Be sill'd with reverential Fear;
Bow down with Wonder, and adore
The Love of Christ for evermore.

Jesu, set up thy Banner here,

Let Sinners to thy Throne draw near;

Obtain remission of their Sins,

The Peace and Joy the.Gospel brings.

Let many here be Born again,

And sind Salvation througli thy Name;

Angels rejoice around thy Throne,

That wand'ring Sinners are brought Home.

Make this a Fold for thy blest Sheep,
And let them close together keep,

Under

Under the Shadow of thy Wings,
And learn the Notes that Angels Sing.

And while we Worship here below,
Let us in Faith and Love still grow,
Longing to join the Heav'nly Throngs,
In one triumphant endless Song.'

HYMN III.

The same.

OLORD, we come before thy Throne,
In all Humility fall down,
And worship at thy Feet;
Here may we wait 'till Thou pass by,
Unto our longing Souls draw nigh,
Who lie at Mercy's Seat,

Within thy House of Mercy, we
Will seek, 'till we thy Glory see,

O let it now draw nigh;
Unveil thy Face, that we may prove
The wond"rous myst'ry of that Love,

Why God for Sinners dy'd!

Nothing, great God, have we to bring,
But such vile Hearts that's full of Sin,

Lord, wash them in thy Blood;
Take off the Burden from each Heart,
Thy free Salvation now impart,
, That we may walk with God.

O that we could this Moment feel
The blessed Spirit's Heav'nly Seal,
The Unction from above;

B 2, Then
