6 None but your Sovereign and their Goc
For sinners can atone;
And bear it all alone.
21. C. M. Watts. The Brazen Serpents Antitype. SIGH on the cross the Saviour hung, Here sinners by th' old serpent stung,
Look, and forget their pains.
A dying world revives;
22. C. M. Hart. Fellowship with Christ in his sufferings. Phil. iii. 10.
And sin was by him borne!
Our bruised Champion came, To suffer what remain'd beside
Of anguish, grief, and shame.
He hung in open view;
Of God deserted too.
With soft infection ran;
Except the heart of man.
And made believers clean;
Who is not griev'd at sin.
6 0, cause this flinty heart to melt!
Steep it in blood divine!
23. C. M. Stennett.
And wept, and bled, and died,
That languish'd at his side.
The penitent confess'd;
And thus his prayer address'd: 3.Jesus, thou Son and heir of heaven!
•Thou spotless Lamb of God! • I see thee bath'd in sweat and tears,
*And weltering in thy blood. 4.Yet quickly from these scenes of woe,
“In triumph thou shalt rise, "Burst through the gloomy shades of death.
•And shine above the skies. 5 . Amid the glories of that world,
Dear Saviour, think on me, *And in the vict'ries of thy death
• Let me a sharer be.
And instartly replies;
24. L M Watts.
Jesus our Surely and Saviour. A DAM, our father and our head,
Transgress'd, and justice doom'd us dead; The fiery law speaks als despair ;, There's no reprieve nor pardon there,
2 But O, unutterable grace!
The Son of God takes Adam's place,
Stretches his arms, and bleeds, and dies. 3 Justice was pleas'd to bruise the God,
And pay its wrongs with heavenly blood: What unknown racks and pangs he bore!
Then rose ;—the law could ask no more. 4 Amazing work! look down, ye skies,
Wonder and gaze with all your eyes ;
And bow to this mysterious love.
By all the flaming hosts ador'd;
Ere we snall rise to join their song? 6 Send down a chariot from above,
With fiery wheels and pav'd with love,
25. C. M. Anon.
sinner's friend, Now in the bowels of thy love,
O Lord, remember me. 2 Remenaber thy pure word of grace,
Remember Calvary, Remember all thy dying groans,
And then remember me. 3 Thou wondrous Advocate with God,
yield myself to thee; Whilst thou art sitting on thy throne,
Dear Lord, remember me. 4 Howe'er forsaken or distress'd,
Howe'er opprest I be; Howe'er afflicted here on earth,
Do thou remember me.
5 I own I'm guilty, own I'm vile,
Yet thy salvation 's free;
Dear Lord, remember me.
And creature helps all flee,
26. L. M. Watts.
Lo! Salem's daughters weep around! A solemn darkness veils the skies!
A sudden trembling shakes the ground ! 2 Come, saints, and drop a tear or two,
For him who groan'd beneath your
A thousand drops of richer blood!
The Lord of glory dies for men!
Jesus the dead revives again!
Up to his Father's courts he flies;
And shout him welcome to the skies!
How high your great Deliverer reigns;
And led the monster, death, in chains ! 6 Say, live for ever, wondrous King,
• Born to redeem, and strong to save!
27. S. M.
Upon the raging billows walk'd,
And calm'd them by a word :2 But when my guilt had leave
To rest upon his head,
And forc'd out streams of blood. 3 Trembling I see him kneel,
And hear his ardent prayer,
of wrath forbear. 4 O let it

Christ's agony improved. D'D Christ the Saviour kneel
, And bleed, and pray for me? And shall this bosom nothing feel?
My Saviour! can it be? 2 O melt it into grief,
To penitential woe!
29. S. M.
The Saviour's agony. E knelt, the Saviour knelt,
; Who can describe the pangs he felt
Whilst in that agony? 2 And as he knelt, he bled,
The drops fell to the ground:
With streams of sorrow drown'd. 3 Who can forbear to kneel,
When Christ the Saviour knelt? Hard is the heart that cannot feel,
The heart that will not melt.
