3 Jesus for rebel mortals dies?
How can it be! my soul replies,
What! Jesus die for me?
“Yes,” saith the suffring son of God,
“I give my life, I spill my blood,
For thee, poor soul, for thee.”

D ARK and thorny, is the desert

Thro' which pilgrims make their way; Yet beyond this vale of sorrow, Lie the fields of endless day: Fiends loud howling through the desert, Make them tremble as they go, And the fiery darts of Satan Often bring their courage low.

2 O young soldiers, are you weary of the roughness of the way”

Does your strength begin to fail you?
And your vigor to decay!

Jesus, Jesus will go with you:
He will lead you to his throne;

He who dyed his garments for you,
And the wine-press trod alone.

3 He whose thunder shakes creation,
He who bids the planets roll:
He who rides upon the tempest,
And whose sceptre sways the whole:
Round him are ten thousand angels,
Ready to obey command,
They are always hovering round you,
Till you reach the heavenly land.

4 There on flow'ry hills of pleasure,

Lie the fields of endlest rest!

Love, and joy, and peace forever Reign and triumph in your breast.

Who can paint the scenes of glory
Where the ransomed dwell on high;

There. on golden harps forever
Sound redemption through the sky.

5 There’s a million flaming seraph's
Who fly across the heav'nly plain;
There they sing immortal praises;
Glory, glory, is their strain.
But methinks a sweeter concert
Makes the heavenly arches ring:

And the song is heard in Zion,
Which the angels cannot sing.

6 otheir crowns' how bright they sparkle Such as monarchs never wore;

They are gone to richer pastures,
Josus is their shepherd there;

- Hail! ye happy, happy spirits,

Death no more shall make you fear,

Grief nor sorrow, pain nor anglish,
Shall no more distress you there.

SAW. my Saviour: Saw ye my Saviour
Saw ye my Saviour God! -
O he died on Calvary,
To atone for you and me,
And to purchase our pardon with blood.

2 He was extended, he was extended,
So painfully nail'd to the cross;
There he bow ’d his head and died,
There my Lord was crucified,
To atone for a world that was lost-

3 Jesus hung bleeding, Jesus hung bleeding Three dreadful hours in pain;

And the solid rocks were rent, Through creation's vast extent, When the Jews crucified the Lamb.

4 Darkness prevailed, darkness prevailed,
Darkness prevailed o'er the land;
And the sun refused to shine,
While his Majesty divine
Was derided, insulted and slain.

5. When it was finish'd, when it was finish’d
And the atonement was made,
He was taken by the great,
And emba'm’d in spices sweet,
And was in a new sepulcre laid.

6 Hail mighty Saviour, hail mighty Saviour
Prince and the author of peace,
Soon he burst the bands of death,
And triumphant, from the earth,
He ascended to mansions of bliss.

7 There interceding, there interceding,
Pleading that sinners may live,
Crying, “See my hands and sides,
Father, I was crucified
To redeem them, I pray thee forgive.”

8 “I will forgive them, I will forgive them
When they repent and believe;
Let them now return to thee,
And be reconcil'd to me,
And salvation they all shall receive.”

ORD? in the morning thou shalt hear
My voice ascending high;
To thee will I direct my prayer,
To thee lift up mine eye.

2 Then to thine house will I resort,
To taste thy mercies there;
I will frequent thy holy court,
And worship in thy fear.

3 Thou art a God before whose sight,
The wicked shall not stand;
Sinners shall ne'er be thy delight,
Nor dwell at thy right hand.

4 But they who love and fear thy name,
Shall see their hopes fulfilled;
The mighty God will compass them
With favor, as a shied.

5 O may my spirit guide my feet
In ways of truth and grace;
Make every path of duty straight,
And plain before my face.
