HYMN 296. Chaplin. Amsterdam. [b]

Alarm. - 7s & 6s.
e 1 STOP, poor sinner! stop and think,

N Before you farther go!
Will you sport upon the brink

Of everlasting wo!
Once again I charge you, stop!

For unless you warning take,
Ere you are aware, you drop

Into the burning lake!
g 2 Say, have you an arm like God,

That you his will oppose ?
Fear you not that iron rod

With which he breaks his foes ?
Can you stand in that dread day

When his judgment shall proclaim,
And the earth shall melt away

Like wax before the flame?
3 Though your heart be made of steel,

Your forehead lined with brass,
God at length will make you feel,

He will not let you pass. Sinners then in vain will call,

(Though they now despise his grace,) “ Rocks and mountains on us fall,

And hide us from his face.” HYMN 297. L. M. Germany. [b or *]

" Renounce thy Sins.01" DENOUNCE thy sins," the gospel cries,

1 And pant t'embrace a fairer prize; A heaven of joys before thee waits,

Then take the road to Zion's gates. p 2 “ Renounce thy sins," the watchmen cry,

Believe—and you shall never die; g Fair robes of glory wait above

For all the heirs of bleeding love.
3 “ Renounce thy sins,” God's children cry,
Repentand soar to worlds on high,
Where streams of living waters roll,
And ceaseless bliss absorbs the soul.
4 “ Renounce thy sins," thy reason cries,
Break from your heart these hateful ties,

Enlist a soldier of the Lamb,
. And joy t'exalt the Saviour's name.

HYMN 298. L. M. . Bowen. [b or *)

Jesus a Guest. Rev. iii, 20. ei DEHOLD the Saviour at thy door,

D He gently knocks, has knocked before; Has waited long, is waiting still,

You treat no other friend so ill. a 2 O lovely attitude !—he stands

With melting heart, and outstretched hands!
O matchless kindness! and he shows

This matchless kindness to his foes.
b 3 Admit him ;-for the human breast,
· Ne'er entertained so kind a guest;
Admit him ;-or the hour's at hand,
When at his door denied you'll stand.
-4“ Open my heart, Lord, enter in,
Slay every foe, and conquer sin :
I now to thee my all resign,
My body, soul, and all are thine.”

HYMN 299. 7. Evening Hymn. [b] " Why will ye die? O House of Israel !" Ezek. xviü, 31. el SINNERS! turn-why will ye die?

D God, your Maker, asks you why:
God, who did your being give
Made you with himself to live :
He the fatal cause demands,
Asks the work of his own hands :
Why, O thankless creatures ! why

Will ye spurn his love, and die ?
0 2 Sinners ! turn-why will ye die ?

God, your Saviour, asks you why: .
He who his own life did give,
That ye might for ever live :
Will you let him die in vain,
Crucify your Lord again?
Why, O ransomed sinners, why

Will ye slight his grace, and die ?
b 3 Sinners ! turn-why will ye die ?

God, the Spirit, asks you why:
He who all your lives hath strove-
Moved you to embrace his love-
Will ye not his love receive?
Will ye still refuse to live?
Why, long-sought sinners, why
Will ye grieve your God and die? WESLEY.

HYMN 300. 7s. Evening Hymn. [b or *] e 1 T ET the beasts their breath resign,

U Strangers to the life divine;
Who their God can never know,
Let their spirit downward go.
You for higher ends were born:
You may all to God return :
Dwell with him above the sky:

Why will ye for ever die ?
e 2 What could your Redeemer do,
More than he hath done for you?
To procure your peace with God,
Could he more than shed his blood ?
After all his flow of love,
All his drawings from above,
Why will ye your Lord deny ?
Why will ye for ever die ? WESLEY's Col.

HYMN 301. 7s. Pilgrim. [b or *7 s1 SINNER! rouse thee from thy sleep,

Wake—and o'er thy folly weep;
Raise thy spirit dark and dead;
Jesus waits his light to shed.
2 Wake from sleep, arise from death,
See the bright and living path :
Watchful tread that path ; be wise ;-
Leave thy folly, seek the skies.
3 Leave thy folly, cease from crime,
From this hour redeem thy time;
Life secure without delay,
Evil is the mortal day.
4 Be not blind, and foolish still,
Called of Jesus, learn his will :
Jesus calls from death and night,
Jesus waits to shed his light.

HYMN 302. S. M. St. Thomas. [b]

The accepted Time. 2 Cor. vi, 2.
1 N OW is th' accepted time,

I Now is the day of grace;
Now, sinners, come without delay,

And seek the Saviour's face.
2 Now is th' accepted time,

The Saviour calls to-day;

To-morrow it may be too late

Then why should you delay ? 3 Now is th' accepted time,

The gospel bids you come ; And every promise in his word Declares there yet is room.

DOBELL. HYMN 303. 8,7, & 4. Tamworth. [b or *1

Sinners invited to Christ. Mat. xi, 28–30. 01 COME, ye sinners, poor and wretched;

U This is your accepted hour; Jesus ready stands to save you, e Full of pity, love, and power;

He is able, He is willing : doubt no more ! o 2 Come, ye weary, heavy laden,

Lost and ruined by the fall ! If you tarry till you're better, You will never come at all :

Not the righteous-
Sinners Jesus came to call.
3 Let not conscience make you linger,

Nor of fitness fondly dream;
All the fitness He requireth,
Is to feel the need of Him;

This he gives you;.

'Tis the Spirit's rising beam. e 4 Agonizing in the garden,

Lo, your Saviour prostrate lies ! On the bloody tree behold him, Hear him cry before he dies,

" It is finished ! Sinners, will not this suffice ? 5 Lo, th' incarnate God ascended,

Pleads the merit of his blood : Venture on Him, venture wholly, Let no other trust intrude :

None but Jesus

Can do helpless sinners good. 8 6 Saints and angels, joined in concert,

Sing the praises of the Lamb;
While the blissful seats of heaven
Sweetly echo with his name.

Hallelujah!
Sinners here may sing the same. . HART.

HYMN 304. 8, 7 & 4. Calvary. [*] 01 H EAR, O sinner! mercy hails you,

11 Now with sweetest voice she calls;
Bids you haste to seek the Saviour,
Ere the hand of justice falls :

Trust in Jesus,

'Tis the voice of mercy calls.
o 2 Haste, O sinner! to the Saviour,-

Seek his mercy while you may ;
Soon the day of grace is over;
Soon your life will pass away!

Haste to Jesus,
You must perish, if you stay.
HYMN 305. 12s. New Jerusalem. *7

Free Grace.
01 THE voice of free grace cries, “ Escape to the

I mountain :"
For Adam's lost race, Christ hath opened a fountain :
For sin and uncleanness, and every transgression,
His blood flows so freely in streams of salvation.

CHORUS.
s Hallelujah to the Lamb, who has bought us a pardon,

We'll praise him again, when we pass over Jordan.
2 Ye souls that are wounded, to the Saviour repair,
Now he calls you in mercy-and can you forbear?
Though your sins are increased as high as a moun-

tain,
His blood can remove them-it flows from the foun-

tain. 3 Now Jesus, our King, reigns triumphantly glo

rious; O'er sin, death, and hell, he is more than victorious : With shouting proclaim it-oh trust in his passion, He saves us most freely-oh precious salvation ! 4 Our Jesus his name now proclaims all victorious, He reigns over all, and his kingdom is glorious ; To Jesus we'll join with the great congregation, And triumph, ascribing to him our salvation. 5 With joy shall we stand, when escaped to the

shore;
With harps in our hands, we'll praise şim the more;
We'll range the sweet plains on the bank of the

river,
And sing of salvation for ever and ever.

THORNBY.
