HYMN to the TRINITY,

Go Dr Everlating Love,

VOD of unexhausted Grace

Overpower'd before Thy Face

For so poor'a Worm as me!
Thou hast given Thy only Son,

To bring us back to Thee.

Thy hallow'd Name I blels,

To buy the Sinner's Peace !
Gushing from Thy facred Veins

Let it now my Soul o'reflow,
Purge out all my sinful Stains,

And wash me white as Snow.

The Life of Jesus breathe,
The deep Things of God reveal,

Apply my Saviour's Death :
With the Father and the Son

Soon as One in Thee I am,
All

my Nature shall make known
The Glories of the Lamb.

On bis BIRTH DAY.

O

Fr have I curft my Natal Day,

While strugʻling in the Legal Strife, And with'd for Wings to fly away,

And murmur'd to be held in Life:
But O! my Blasphemies are o'er,
I curse my Day, my God no more.

.2. His Grace, which I abus'd so long,

Hath This, and all my Sins forgiven, I now have learnt a better Song,

I chearfully look up to Heaven, With Joy upon my Head return, And bless the Day that I was born. 3. How could I, LORD, Thy Goodness grieve,

How could I do Thee such Despight?
At last I thankfully receive

The Gift of Thy Continued Light,
No longer I Thy Favours spurn,
But bless the Day that I was born.
4. Fountain of Life, and all my Joy,

JESU, Thy Mercies I embrace,
The Breath Thougiv'st, for Thee employ

And wait to taste Thy Perfect Grace,
No more forsaken, and forlorn,
I bless the Day that I was born.

5.

Since first I felt by Grace remov'd

My Sin's intollerable Load,
Long in the Wilderness I rov'd,

And groan'd to live without my GOD;
I cannot now, as hopeless, mourn,
But bless the Day that I was born.
