Seize, O seize the proffered blessing,
Grace from God and peace within.

Lord; with favor still attend us,
Bless us with thy wondrous love;

Thou, our sun and shicló, defend us;
All our hope is from above.

HYMN 73.-P. M. W ANDERING pilgrims, mourning

Weak and tempted launbs of Christ,
Who endure great tribulation,
And with sins are much distress'd,
Christ hath sent me to invite you
To a rich and costly feast;
Let not shame nor pride prevent you.
Come, the sweet provision taste.

2 If you have a heart lamenting,
And bemoan your wretched case,
Come, to Jesus Christ repenting,
He will give you gospel grace.
If you want a heart to fear him,

*Love and serve him all your days,

Only coine to Christ and ask him,
He will guide your feet always.

* If your heart is nnbelieving,


Doubting Jesus' pardoning love,
Lay hard by Bethesda waiting,
Till the troubled waters move;
If no man appears to help wou,
All their efforts prove but talk,
Jesus, Jesus, he will cleanse You,
Rise, take up thy bed and walk.

If like Peter you are sinking
In the sea of unbelief,
wait with patience, always praying,
Christ will send you sweet relief,
He will give you grace and glory,
All your wants shall be suppli’d,
Canaan, Canaan lies before you,
Rise and cross the swelling tide.

Death shall not destroy your comfort, Christ wil guard you through th: gloom, Down he’ll send a heavenly convoy To convey you to his home, there you’ll spend your day" is pleasure, * Free from ev’ry want and care : foome, O come, my blessed Saviour, Fain my spirit would be there.

OME all ye sons of Zion,
Who arc waiting for salvation,
Have your lamps trimm'd and burning,
For behold the proclamation ;
Saying, all things are now ready,
For the poor and for the needy,
All my fatlings now are killed,
And prepared on the table.

2 Arise and get ready,

Hasten to the marriage supper,”
While the bridegroom is calling,

"And poor sinners are falling,

See the Lord of life descending,
And the judgment trumpet sounding,
Which shall gather all the nations,
To the final judgment day,

39;...what a happy meeting,

When salvation is completed,
And tribulation ended,
And the spotless robe prepared,
For the bride to be adorned,

In the jasper walls be crowned, !
Šinging worthy is the Lamb,
In the new Jerusalem.

4 O sinners don't be donbting,
while the sons of God are shouting,
Come and join the happy army,
Then ther's nothing that will harm you,
If you follow Christ the Saviour, o
And break off your bad behaviour,
And repent and be converted,
You will sing his praises too.

AIL, heavenly love, that first began
The scheme to rescue fallen man?
Hail matchless, free, eternal grace
That gave my soul a hiding place.

2 Against the God who rules the sky, I fought with hands uplifted high : Despis'd the offers of his grace, too proud to seek a hiding place.

3 Enwrapp'd in dark, Egyptian might,
And fond of darkness more than light,
Madly I ran the sinful, race,
Secure, without a hiding place.

But lo! the eternal counsel ran,
Almighty love arrest the man.
I felt the arrows of distress,
And found I had no hiding place.

Eternal justice stood in view,
To Sinai's fiery mount I flew,
But justice cried with frowning face,
This mountain is no hiding place.

But lo! a heavenly voice I heard,
And mercy to my soul appear'd, a
She led me on a pleasing place
To Jesus Christ my hiding place.

** . should storms of sevenfold thunder roll And shake the globe from pole to pole No thunderbolt would daunt my face, For Jesus is my hiding place.

A few more rolling suns at most,
Will land me safe on Canaan’s coast;
Where I shall sing the song of grace,
Safe in my glorious hiding place.
