3 Grace reigns, to pardon crimson sins,
To melt the hardest hearts !
It never more departs.
Against the chosen few;
They all shall conquer too.
If we may see thy face,
And sing the reign of grace ?
1 0 THOU, from whom all goodness flows,
I lift my soul to thee;
Jesus, remember me.
My sins lie heavily,
In love remember me.
And ills I cannot flee,
For good remember me.
4 If, for thy sake, upon my name
Shame and reproach shall be;
If thou remember me.
I wait thy just decree, Be this the prayer of my last breath,. : O Lord, remember me. 6 And when before thy throne I stand,
And lift my soul to thee,
Still, Lord, remember me.
1 O COME, thou wounded Lamb of God,
Come wash us in thy cleansing blood ;
Is sweet, and life or death is gain.
For ever clos'd to all but thee;
The pledge of love for ever there.
That thou should'st man to glory bring ;
4 Ah! Lord, enlarge the scanty thought,
To know the wonders thou hast wrought ; Unloose our stamm'ring tongues to tell
Thy love immense, unsearchable ! 5 First-born of many brethren, thou,
To thee both earth and heav'n must bow ;
10 GOD, my gracious God, to thee My morning prayers shall offer'd be ;
For thee my thirsty soul does pant; My fainting flesh implores thy grace, Within this dry and barren place,
Where I refreshing waters want. 2 0, to my longing eyes once more That view of glorious pow'r restore,
Which thy majestic house displays!
My lips shall always speak thy praise, 3 My life, while I that life enjoy, In blessing God I will employ,
With lifted hands adore his name ; My soul's content shalt be as great As theirs who choicest danties eat,
While I with joy his praise proclaim.
4 When down I lie sweet sleep to find, Thou, Lord, art present to my mind ;
And when I wake in dead of night, Because thou still dost succour bring, Beneath the shadow of thy wing,
I rest with safety and delight.
1 JESUS, we thy promise claim,
We are gather'd in thy name;
Manifest thy presence here.
Breathe thy Spirit, give thy peace ;
Light, and life, and joy impart. 3 Make us all in thee complete ;
Make us all for glory meet;
1 BLESS God, my soul! thou, Lord, alone
Possessest empire without bounds;
2 With light thou dost thyself enrobe,
And glory for a garment take;
Thy canopy of state to make.
His palace-chambers in the skies ;
4. As bright as flame, as swift as wind,
His ministers heav'n's palace fill,
All proud to serve their sov'reign's will. 5 How various, Lord, thy works are found,
For which thy wisdom we adore!
Luke viii, 11-16. (c.m.)
1 ALMIGHTY God! thy word is cast,
Like seed into the ground;
And righteous fruits abound.
This holy seed remove ;
To bring forth fruits of love.
