Ashamed of Jesus !

Here it is I find my heaven,

While upon the Jamb I gaze:
Love I much? I've much forgiven ;

I'm a miracle of grace.
3 Love and grief my heart dividing, i

With my tears his feet l'll bathe:
Constantly in faith abiding,

Life deriving from his death :
May I still enjoy that feeling: T O MO? I
In all need to Jesus go;

JESUS, and can it ever be,
A mortal man ashamed of thee?
Ashamed of thee, whom angels praise?

Whose glories shine through endless da s? 2 Ashamed of Jesus ?-sooner, far,

Let evening blush to own her star:
Ashamed of Jesus ?-just as soon

Let midnight blush to think of noon. 3 Ashamed of Jesus ?-of that Friend

On whom my heavenly hopes depend ?
It must not be-be this my sbame,

That I no more revere his name. 4 Ashamed of Jesus?-ves I may,

When I've no sins to wash away,
No tears to wipe, no joy to crave,

No fears to quell, no soul to save.
5 Till then-nor is the boasting vain)

Till then, I'll boast a Saviour slain :
And O! may this my portion be,
That Saviour's not ashamed of me.

Sends down his Spirit from on high,

According to his word:
All hail the day of Pentecost,

The coming of the Holy Ghost !

New life creates within :
He quickens sinners from the death

Of trespasses and sin:
An hail the day of Pentecost,

The coming of the Holy Ghost !

And sbows them unto men; The fallen soul his temple makes;

God's image stamps again: All hail the day of Pentecost,

The coming of the Holy Ghost! 4 Come, Holy Spirit, from above,

With thy celestial fire;
Come, and with flames of zeal and love

Our hearts and tongues inspire:
Re this our day of Pentecost,
The coming of the Holy Ghost! COTTERILL

Hymn 111. 6-8's.
Deity and Work of the Holy Spirit.
Spirit of Truth, essential God,

Who didst thy ancient saints inspire,
Shed in our hearts thy love abroad,

And touch our hallow'd lips with fire :
Our God from all eternity,
World without end we worship thee.

Living Water.

2 Still we believe, Almighty Lord,

Whose presence fills both earth and heaven, The meaning of the written word

Is by thy inspiration given : Thou only dost thyself explain

The secret mind of God to man. 3 Come, then, Divine Interpreter,

The Scriptures to our hearts apply;
And taught by thee, we God revere,

Him, in Three Persons, magnify;
In each the Triune God adore,
Who was, and is for evermore.

Hymn 112. L.M.
The Guidance of the Holy Spirit.
COME, gracious Spirit, heavenly Dove,
With light and comfort from above ;
Be thou our Guardian, thou our Guide;

O'er every thought and step preside.
2 Conduct us safe, conduct us far

From every sin and hurtiul snare :
Lead to thy word, that rules must give,

And teach us lessons how to live.
3 The light of truth to us display,

And make us know and choose the way;
Plant holy fear in every heart,

That we from God may ne'er depart.
4 Lead us to holiness, the road

That we must take to dwe!l with God :
Lead us to Christ, the living way,

Nor let us from his pasture stray.
3 Lead us to God, our final rest,

In his enjoyment to be bless'd:
Lead us to heaven, the seat of bliss,
Where pleasure in perfection is. BROWNE.
HYMN 113. L.M.

Living Water.
BLESS'D Spirit, source of grace divine,
What soul-refreshing streams are thine!

T'he Spirit of Faith.

your

O bring these healing waters nigh,

Or we must droop, and fall, and die!" 2 No traveller through desert lands,

'Midst scorching suns and burning sand ,
More needs the current to obtain,

Nor to enjoy refreshing rain.
3 Our longing souls aloud would sin

Spring up, Celestial Fountain, spring;
To a redundant river flow,

And cheer the thirsty land below.
4 May this blest torrent near my side

Through all the desert gently glide;
Then in Immanuel's land above
Spread to a sea of joy and love.

HYMN 114. S.M.

The Spirit of Faith.
Spirit of faith, come down,

Reveal the things of God;
And make to us the Godhead known,

And witness with the blood:
'Tis thine the blood to apply,

And give us eyes to see,
Who did for every sinner die,

Has surely died for me.
No man can truly say

That Jesus is the Lord,
Unless thou take the veil away,

And breathe the living word:
Then, only then, we feel

Our interest in his blood;
And cry, with joy unspeakable,

Thou art my Lord, my God!
3. O that the world might know

The all-atoning Lamb;
Spirit of faith, descend and show

The virtue of his name:

The Spirit of Prayer.

The na courb the mou Jesuse.

The grace which all may find

The saving power impart;
And testify to all inankind,

And speak in every heart.
Inspire the living faith,

Which whosoe'er receives,
The witness in himself he hath,

And consciously believes ;
The faith that conquers all,

And does the mountains move,
And saves whoe'er on Jesus call.
And perfects them in love. C. WESLEY.

HYMN 115. C.M.....

The Witness of the Spirit.
Wuy should the children of a King'

Go mourning all their days?
Great Comforter, descend and bring

The tokens of thy grace.
: Dost thou not dwell in all thy saints,

Aad seal the heirs of heaven?
When wilt thou banish my complain

And show my sins forgiven?
3 Assure my conscience of her part

In the Redeemer's blood;
And bear thy witness with my heart

That I am born of God.
A Thou art the earnest of his love;

The pledge of joys to come:
Mav thiy bless'd wings, celestial Dove.
Sately convey me home. WATTS.
HYMN 116. 6-8's.

The Spirit of Prayer.
JESUS, thou sovereign Lord of all,

The same through one eternal day;
Attend thy feeblest followers' call,

And o, instruct us how to pray.
Pour out the supplicating grace,
And stir us up to seek thy face.
