3. Let us never, never rest
Till the Promise is fulfil'd, Till we are of Thee poffeft,
Wash'd, and sanctified, and seald: Till we all in Love renew'd,
Find the Pearl that Adam lost, Temples of the Living God,
er, Son, and Holy Ghost.
At the Meeting of Christian Friends.
Lory be ,
God, from whom all Blessings flow! ! Make we mention of His Love,
Publish we His Praise below; Callid together by His Grace,
We are met in Jesu's Name, See with Joy each others Face,
Followers of the Bleeding Lamb.
2. Let us then sweet Counsel take
How to make our Calling sure, Our Election how to make,
Past the Reach of Hell secure ; Build we each the other up,
Pray we for our Faith's Increase, Lasting Comfort, steadfast Hope,
Solid Joy, and settled Peace.
3. More and more let Love abound,
Never, never may we reft,
Of our Paradise poffeft.
Calls us back, from Eden driven,
Soon He takes us up to Heaven.
4. JESU, LORD, for this we wait,
Till thine Image we regain : Wilt thou not our Souls create ?
Saviour, shall our Faith be vain? If we do in Thee believe,
Now the Second Gift impart, Now th' Abiding Witness give,
Give us now the Perfect Heart.
5. Surely He will not delay,
If we patiently endure, Will not empty send away
Sinners hungry, mournful, poor. Jesus wept ! and still doth weep,
Human Misery to behold, Pities now His wand'ring Sheep,
Longs to bring us to His Fold. 6 “ Children, have you ought to eat?"
(Kindly ask's our Careful GOD) Jesu's Flesh indeed is Meat,
Drink indeed is Jesu's Blood : Drink, and eat my Well-belov’d,
Lean, He cries, upon my Breaft, Till ye All, from Earth remov'd,
Share with Me the Marriage Feaft.
That will not let us part :
We still are join'd in Heart.
When He appoints we go,
And do His Work below.
3. O let us ever walk in Him,
And Nothing know beside, Nothing desire, Nothing esteem.
But Jesus Crucified.
4. Closer, and closer let us cleave
To His belov'd Embrace, Expect His Fulness to receive,
And Grace to answer Grace.
5. While thus we walk with Christ in Light
Who shall our Souls disjoin,
In Fellowship Divine !
6. We All are One who Him receive,
And each with each agree,
Bleft Point of Unity !
Partakers of the Saviour's Grace,
The same in Mind and Heart,
Nor Life, nor: Death ean part:
8. But let us haften to the Day
Which shall our Flesh restore, When Death shall all be done away,
And Bodies part no more.
At Parting with a Friend,
We chearfully commend
Thee to His preserving Grace :
Go, in full Assurance go ! Heavenward set thy stedfast Face,
And only Jesus know.
2. Jesus, and Him Crucified
Forever bear in Mind,
Be confident to find ;
Still thy Shield, and Buckler prove,
And Everlasting Love.
3. Love the dear Atoning Lamb,
And Us for Jesu's Sake ;
Of Others mention make;
Absent when in Flesh Thou art, To the Throne of Grace we bear,
We bear Thee on our Heart.
4. To the Source of all our Good
Thy Soul we now commend, Jesu, sprinkle with Thy Blood,
And love Him to the End : Faithfully on Thee we call,
Perfect Him, and Us in One,
Though absent in Body, yet present
in Spirit. "See
NHR IST, our Head, and Common LORD,
See the Souls that wait on Thee, Hear us all with one Accord
Sweetly in Thy Praise agree: Parted tho? in Flesh we are,
Join’d to Thee, our Corner-Stone, We are intimately near,
Present, and in Spirit One.
2. Let us now to Thee aspire,
Who Thy Life begin to know, Let the Circulating Fire
Now in every Bósom glow : Let the Incense of our Vows,
From Thy Golden Censer rise, Fragrant throʻ the Higher House,
Well-accepted Sacrifice. 3. Come, ye Absent Souls who love
JESUS with a simple Heart, Seek with us the Things above,
Never from the Work depart ; Never let us ceale to fing
The great Riches of His Grace, Till we all behold our King
Eye to Eye, and Face to Face.
4. Quickly we shall All appear
At the Judgment-feat above, We shall see our Jesus near,
Him whom now unseen we love“; We His dear, peculiar Ones,
Sharers of our Master's Bliss, We shall fit upon our Thrones,
We shall see Him as He is.
