The pure and Heavenly Nature share,
1. Aviour from Sin, I wait to prove
That Jesus is Thy Healing Name,
Whate'er I have, or Can, or Am;
2. Answer that gracious End in me
For which Thy precious Life was given,
Restore, and make me meet for Heaven ;
3. 'Tis not a bare Release from Sin,
Its Guilt and Pain, my Soul requires,
Thee, JESUS, Thee my Heart desires,
Sin to condemn, and Man to save ?
That I Thy Mind in me might have,
No longer to Myself, but Thee?
To Him who gave Himself for Me? Come then, my Master and my God, Take the dear Parchase of Thy Blood.
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
Capable of Human Pain
Groan an Answer from within,
I shall be redeem'd from Sin.
5. Hoping against Hope I wait
For Redemption in Thy Blood :
Take away my heavy Load,
O bring near the joyful Hour,
All the Guilt, and all the Power.
6. Grant, O grant my last Request,
Nothing do I ak beside,
Rest from Self, and Rest from Pride;
Give me Faith to enter in,
my own dead Works of Sin.
My own Evil to eschew,
Till I am a Creature New ;
Till the Perfect Grace is given ;
Nothing or in Earth or Heaven.
A PRAYER for Persons joind in
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,
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.
2. Our Hearts are to Ourselves unknown,
Till Thou the Veil remove,
By Thy Victorious Love. 3. Thee, at Thy Word, we come to meet,
And humbly to confess,
Our utter Sinfulness.
4. O let us faithfully obey
The Counsel of Thy Will,
Our every Thought reveal.
Let no Self-foothing Art
Of a foul Hellish Heart.
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 make the Sinner whole.
