To raise the Sinner from his Fall,

And bring him back to God and Heaven,
Thou All the World haft died to save,
And All may Thy Salvation have.

4. How shall I thank Thee for the Grace,

On me, and All Mankind bestow'd!
O that my every Breath were Praise,

O that my Heart were fill'd with God!
My Heart would then with Love o'erflow,
And all my Life Thy Glory shew.
5. See me, O LORD, athirst and faint,

Me weary of Forbearing see,
And let me feel Thy Love's Constraint,

And freely give up All for Thee.
True in the Fiery Tryal prove,
And pay Thee back Thy Dying Love.


"O LO pine Folanguish at thy Stay,

I pine for Thee with lingring Smart,
Weary, and faint thro' long Delay,

When wilt Thou come into my Heart,
From Sin and Sorrow set me free,
And swallow up my Soul in Thee!

2. Come, O Thou Universal Good,

Balm of the Wounded Conscience, come,
The hungry, dying Spirit's Food,

The weary, wandring Pilgrim's Home,
Haven to take the Shipwreck'd in,
My Everlasting Rest from Sin.

3. Be Thou, O Love, whate'er I want,

Support my Feebleness of Mind, Relieve the Thirsty Soul, the Faint Revive, illuminate the Blind,



The Mournful chear, the Drooping lead,
And heal the Sick, and raise the Dead.

4. Come, O my Comfort and Delight,

My Strength and Health, my Shield and Sun, My Boast, and Confidence, and Might,

My Joy, my Glory, and my Crown, My Gospel-Hope, my Calling's Prize, My Tree of Life, my Paradise.


The Secret of the LORD Thou art,
The Mystery so long unknown,
Christ in a pure and perfect Heart,

The Name inscrib'd in the White Stone,
The Life Divine, the Little Leaven,
My pretious Pearl, my Present Heaven.

Let thy Spirit interceed : Take, O take, &c. 6. Not because I willing am,

On me this Grace be shew'd ; But Thou art th’ Atoning Lamb,

Therefore apply Thy Blood; Therefore, LORD, no more delay,

Therefore heal my Soul, and lead ; Take, O take my Sins away,

And make me free indeed.

Throughout the Way my Weakness bear,

And bring me to the End.
