The pure and Heavenly Nature share,
And Fruit unto Perfection bear.



1. Aviour from Sin, I wait to prove

That Jesus is Thy Healing Name,
To love, when perfected in Love,

Whate'er I have, or Can, or Am;
I stay me on Thy faithful Word,
The Servant shall be As his LORD.

2. Answer that gracious End in me

For which Thy precious Life was given,
Redeem from All Iniquity,

Restore, and make me meet for Heaven ;
Unless Thou purge my Every Stain,
Thy Suffering, and my Faith is vain.

3. 'Tis not a bare Release from Sin,

Its Guilt and Pain, my Soul requires,
I want a Spirit of Power within,

Thee, JESUS, Thee my Heart desires,
And pants, and breaks to be renew'd,
And wash'd in Thy All-cleansing Blood.
4. Didft Thou not in the Flesh appear,

Sin to condemn, and Man to save ?
That perfect Love might caft out Fear,

That I Thy Mind in me might have,
In Holiness shew forth Thy Praise,
And serve Thee all my finless Days.
5. Didst Thou not die, that I might live

No longer to Myself, but Thee?
Might Body, Soul, and Spirit give

To Him who gave Himself for Me? Come then, my Master and my God, Take the dear Parchase of Thy Blood.

6. Thine

6. Thine own peculiar Servant claim

For Thine own Truth and Mercy's Sake, Hallow in me Thy Glorious Name,

Me for Thine own this Moment take, And change, and throughlý purify: Thine only may I live, and die.


We have not an High-Priest which

cannot be touched with the Feeling of our Infirmities, &c. Heb. iv, 15. O Compassionate High-Priest,

Full of Truth and Grace for me, Mark the Heavings of my Breast;

See my Sin and Misery! Surely All to Thee is known

Tho' Thou doft not yet appearys Noted is my every Groan,

Counted is my every Tear: 2. I have not a Priest unmov'd

With the Feeling of my Woe, Who Himself was never prov'd,

Who my Sufferings cannot know : Touch'd most sensibly Thou art

With my Soul's Infirmities, Still the Saviour's gentle Heart

Doth with Sinners fimpathize. 3.

Tho' He now triumphant reigns,

Still as in His Days of Flesh, All His Agonies and Pains

In our Souls He feels afresh : Tho' exalted to a Throne,

Thou dost in our Sorrows share, Thou hast rot forgot Thine own: Thine own Flelh and Blood we are.

4. Friend of Sinners, in Thy Heart,

Tell me, doth there not remain
One unarm'd and tender Part,

Capable of Human Pain
LORD, I wait for the Reply :

Groan an Answer from within,
Tell me, Comforter, that I,

I shall be redeem'd from Sin.

5. Hoping against Hope I wait

For Redemption in Thy Blood :
Help me in my loft Eftate,

Take away my heavy Load,
Save me from this Tyranny,

O bring near the joyful Hour,
From An Sin my Spirit free,

All the Guilt, and all the Power.

6. Grant, O grant my last Request,

Nothing do I ak beside,
Only give my Spirit Reft,

Rest from Self, and Rest from Pride;
Bring into Thy Perfect Peace,

Give me Faith to enter in,
Let me with Thy People cease

my own dead Works of Sin.
7. Power I want, a Constant Power

My own Evil to eschew,
Till my Heart Can fin no more,

Till I am a Creature New ;
Let me in Thy Wounds abide,

Till the Perfect Grace is given ;
Give me This, I ask beside

Nothing or in Earth or Heaven.

A PRAYER for Persons joind in

Fellowship. "

Ry us, O GOD, and search the Ground TR

Of Every Sinful Heart, Whate'er of Sin in Us is found,

O bid it All depart. 2. When to the Right or Left we stray,

Leave us not Comfortless, But guide our Feet into the Way

Of Everlasting Peace.

3. Help us to help each other, LORD,

Each other's Cross to bear, Let Each his friendly Aid afford,

And feel his Brother's Care.

4. Help us to build each other

up, Our little Stock improve, Increase our Faith, confirm our Hope,

And perfect us in Love,

5. Up into Thee, our Living Head,

Let us in all Things grow,
Till Thou hast made us free indeed,

And Sinless here below.

6. Then when the Mighty Work is wrought,

Receive Thy Ready Bride, Give us in Heaven a happy Lot

With All the Sanctified.



TESU, All Power is given to Thee,

Command our inward Parts, Turn as the Rivers of the Sea

Our hard unyielding Hearts.

[ocr errors]

2. Our Hearts are to Ourselves unknown,

Till Thou the Veil remove,
Open, enlarge, and melt them down

By Thy Victorious Love. 3. Thee, at Thy Word, we come to meet,

And humbly to confess,
While lowly proftrate at Thy Feet,

Our utter Sinfulness.

4. O let us faithfully obey

The Counsel of Thy Will,
And each to each our Faults display,

Our every Thought reveal.
5. Our Fig-leaves all be cast aside,

Let no Self-foothing Art
Conceal the Luft, t' indulge the Pride

Of a foul Hellish Heart.

[ocr errors]

6. Open a Window in our Breaft,

That Each our Heart may see, And let no Secret be fuppreft,

Since all are known to Thee.

7. Remove the Sins which we declare,

The Burthen of our Soul,
And hear the mutual faithful Prayer,

And make the Sinner whole.
