The Love Feast.
T N Jesu's Name our Souls we bow,
Kindle the heav'nly Flame:
In realms of Bliss above,
To keep the Feast of Love.
Come, holy, holy, holy Lord,
From Heav'n, thy lofty Throne,
And join us all in One;
Come thou anointing Dove ! .
And we shall Feast in Love.
WHAT Tongue can fully tell,
Poor, Poor, wretched, worthless Worm,
In what fad Plight I stand, When Good I would perform, Then Evil is at Hand:
My leprous Soul . f
Is all unclean!
Thou all-sufficient Lamb,
Hebrews, iii. I.
SE E, my Soul, thy Saviour Dying
How does he in Torture languish!
There he Hangs,
Full of Pangs,
Was thy Lord so lately bleeding,
He sits down,
On a Throne, 'Ever interceding. .;
He makes ceaseless Supplication
For his Race,
For more Grace, Pardon and Salvation.
When thou art in Want or Danger,
Christ is thine, He lay in a Manger.
Art thou try'd with fierce Temptation,
Scorn to Fear,
Christ is near, He is thy Salvation.
Art thou funk in Fear and Doubting,
By each shake,
Thou shalt take Deeper, deeper rooting.
/"^Hildren of the heav'nly King,
We are trav'ling Home to God,
Shout, ye little Flock, and blest,
Fear not, Brethren, joyful stand
Lord, obediently we go,
O Father of Heav'n, be ever ador'd!
O Son of his Love, who deignedst to Die,
O Spirit of Love, of Health, and of Power, Thy working we prove, thy Grace we adore; Whose inward revealing applies our Lord's
[Blood, Attesting and sealing us-Children of God.
TO-day we're bidden to a Feast,
In that same Night he was betray'd,
Our Lord this Feast enjoin'd;
And all his Passion mind.
©ur Shepherd offer'd up, himself,
To take away our Sin;
The Lamb of God was slain.
Together, with these Symbols, Lord,
Thy blessed self impart,
Feed each believing Heart.
Let us from all our Sins be wash'd
In thy redeeming Blood: And let thy Spirit be the seal
That we are Sons of God.
Come Holy Ghost, with Jesu's Love,
Prepare us for this Feast;
And lean upon his Breast.
