That Thou bar'it our Guilt and Blame ;

O how sweet is then Thy Name ! 3 Self-Will, that most cruel Thing,

May we bring to Thee our King:
For when we as Sinners come,
In Thy Nail-holes we find Room,
Other Children cannot be
Half so glad and bless'd

as we ;
They don't hear, that Thou dear Lamb

On the Cross halt dy'd for them.
s

Be our Shepherd ev'ry Day,
That we little Lambs ne'er stray ;
That whene'er we hear Thy Voice,

To obey we may rejoice.
6 Thanks be for Thy tender Care,

Thanks, that Thou hast brought us here:
Grant O deareft Lamb that we
True, tho' little Servants be!

your Eyes, The Sinner's only Hope and Friend ; The Soul that from his Keeper flies,

Nóne other can from Harın defend : Ye happy Souls that Jesus know,

From Him ah! whither would you go? 3 Turn then, whoe'er is turn'd-aftray,

Turn to the Shepherd of the Sheep:
He by his 1:eath your Debts did pay,

His Life shall you in Safety keep:
Be not afraid, but go, believe,

He will his Sheep with Joy receive. 4. It is not in Him to deftroy,

He came to fave the Souls of Men ; His Spirit is in full Employ

Therefore to bring them home again Hear, Soul, He calleth Thee by Name; Be not afraid He is a Lamb!

2 Here let me drink, for ever drink,

Nor ever once depart:
For what I taste, makes me to cry,

“ Fix at this Spring my Heart!"
Dear Saviour, Thog haft seen how oft

I've turn'd away from Thee ;
Olet Thy Work renew'd to-Day,
Remain eternally.

dearest Saviour, might my Heart

Be quite giv’n up to Thee !
O might it, to be always Thine,

My higheft Pleasure be!
2 Thy Love, with such a jealous Flame,

Would have me wholly Thine ;
Thy Blood so shed, demands that I

Should be no longer mine!
3 But Lord, what loveft Thou in me ?

Thou seeft me as I am!
Yet if Thou chooseft ftill to love,

T'hy Choice I will not blame.
Ah Lord ! it is the only Way,

The only Master Art,
To conquer such a Soul as mine,

And break so hard a Heart :

I ne'er should have lov'd Thee,
Hadit Thou not dy'd for me and first

Shewn such a Love to me.

Always with Thee remain:
O let my Soul with Thee yet more

Should give Thee all my Heart.

From the German.
OW will we go and silent be,

And humbly bow both Heart and Knee
Before our Lamb and Head:
We'll venture gladly ev'ry Thing,
At the Command of Christ our King,

By Him we'll be for ever led. :)
