S on the cross the Saviour hung, O may our grateful hearts adore

And wept, and bled, and died, The matchless grace; nor yield to sin, He pour'd salvation on a wretch, Nor wear its cruel felters more. That languish'd at his side,


2 His crimes, with inward grief and shame, Jesus, to thy dear wounds we fly; The penitent confess'd ;

Bedew us with thy blood. Then turn'd his dying eyes to Christ, 3 Those guardian drops our souls secure, And thus his prayer address'd:

And wash away our sin ; 3“ Jesus, thou Son and heir of heaven, Eternal justice frowns no more,

“Thou spotless Lamb of God! And conscience smiles withiin. “I see thee bath'd in sweat and tears, 4 We bless that wondrous purple stream, “And welt'ring in thy blood.

That cleanses every stain ; 4" Yet quickly from these scenes of wo, Yet are our souls but half redeem'd,

“In triumph thou shalt rise, If sin, the tyrant, reign. “ Burst thro’ the gloomy shades of death, 5 Lord, blast his empire with thy breath, “And shine above the skies.

That cursed throne must fail; 5" Amid the glories of that world, Ye flatt'ring plagues that work our death,

“Dear Saviour, think on me, Fly, for we hate you all. “And in the victories of thy death

“Let me a sharer be." 6 His prayer the dying Jesus hears, And instantly replies,

LAW AND GOSPEL. “ To-day thy 'parting soul shall be “\Vith me in paradise.”

From reason's darken'il eyes. 4 Hark, how he prays(the charming sound 4 To chase the shades of death away, Dwells on his dying lips) "FORGIVE!" And bid the sinner live;

And every groan and gaping wound A beam of heaven, a vital ray, Cries, " Father, let the rebels live!"

'Tis thine alone to give. 5 Go, you that rest upon the law, 50 change these wretched hearts of ours, And toil and seek salvation there: And give them life divine !

Look to the flame that Moses saw, Then shall our passions and our powers, And shrink, and tremble,' and despair. Almighty Lord, be thine. 6 But I'll retire beneath the crossSANCTIFICATION.

No strength of nature can suffice

Can souls,all o’er defil'd with sin, [clean: 2 Jesus, thy witness speaks within: Make their own powers and passions The mercy which thy words reveal 3 In rain we arch, in vain we try,

Refines the heart from sense and sin, Till Jesus brings his gospel nigh;

And stamps its own celestial seal. 'Tis there that power and glory dwell, 3'Tis God's -inimitable hand Which save rebellious souls from hell. That moulds and forms the heart anew : 4 This is the pil'ar of our hope,

Blasphemers.can no more withstand, That bears our fainting spirits up;

But bow and own thy doctrine true. We read the grace, we trust the word, 4 The guilty wretch that trusts thy blood And find salvation in the Lord. Finds peace and pardon at the cross; 5 Let men or angels dig the mines,

The sinful soul, averse to God, Where nature's golden treasure shinés; Believes and loves his Maker's laws. Brought near the doctrine of the cross, 5 Learning and wit may cease their strise, All nature's gold appears but dross. When miracles with glory shine ;6 Should vile blasphemers, with disdain, The voice that calls the dead to life Pronounce the truths of Jesus vain, Must be almighty, and divine. We'll meet the scandal and the shame, And sing and triumph in his name.

Cambridge, Tisbury, HYMN 95. C. M. Cowper.

God glorious and sinners saved. York, St. Anns, Devizes.

ATHER, how wide thy glories shine: FA

How high thy wonders rise ! Legal obedience followed by evangelical. Known thro’ the earth by thousand signs, 1

By thousand through the skies. To serve And what she has, she misapplies,

2 Those mighty orbs proclaim thy power, For want of clearer light.

Their motions speak thiy skill;

And on the wings of every hour 2 How long beneath the law I lay,

We read thy patience still. In bondage and distress.!

3 But when we view thy strange design, I toil'd, the precept to obey ;

To save rebellious worms, But toil'd without success.

Where vengeance and compassion join, 3 Then, to abstain from outward sin

In their divinest forms; Was more than I could do ;

4 Here the' whole Deity is known; Now, if I feel its power within,

Nor dares a creature guess I feel I hate it too.

Which of the glories brightest shone, 4 Then, all my servile works were done The justice, or the grace. A righteousness to raise;

5 Now the full glories of the Lamb Now, freely chosen in the Son,

Adorn the heavenly plains ; I freely choose his ways.

Sweet cherubs learn Imanuel's name, 5* What shall I do?'' was then the word,

And try thcir choicest strains. " That I may worthier grow? “What shall I render to the Lord ?" 160, may I bear some humble part

In that immortal song! Is my inquiry now.

Wonder and joy shall tune my heart, 6 To see the law by Christ fulfill'd, And love command my tongue.

And hear his pard’ning voice, Changes a slave into a child,
