3 To us the sacred word apply

With sovereign power and energy,
And may we, in thy faith and fear,
Reduce to practice what we hear.

Thus, Lord, &c.

Hymn 46. C. M.

NCE more we come before our God,

Once more his blessing ask;
O may not duty seem a load,

Nor worship prove a task !
2 Father, thy quick’ning spirit send .

From Heav’n in Jesus' name;
To make our waiting minds attend,

And put our souls in frame.
3 May we receive the word we hear,

Each in an honest heart;
Hoard up the precious treasure there,

And never with it part.
4 To seek thee, all our hearts dispose;

To each thy blessing suit ;

And let the seed thy servant sows

Produce us plenteous fruit. 5 Revive the parch'd with heav'nly showers,

The cold with warmth divine; And as the benefit is ours,

Be all the glory thine.

Hymn 47. 78

Worship. . .. TORD we come before thee now,

u At thy feet we humbly boy : O! do not our suit disdain, i Shall we seek thee, Lord, in vain.' 2 Lord on thee our souls depend, ?

In compassion now descend,
Till our hearts with thy rich grace,

Tune our lips to sing thy praise. 3 In thine own appointed way,

How we seek thee, here we stay; *
Lord, we know not how to go,
Till a blessing thou bestow.

4 Lord some message from thy word,

That may joy and peace afford;
Let thy Spirit now impart

Full Salvation to each heart.
5 Grant that all may seek, and find

Thee a gracious God and kind,
Heal the sick, the captive free;
Let us all rejoice in thee.

Hymn 48. S. M.

Salvation by Grace.
M RACE! 'tis a charming sound,

N Harmonious to the ear,
Heav'n with the echo shall resound,

And all the earth shall hear. 2 Grace first contrived a way,

To save rebellious man,
And all the steps that grace display,

Which drew the wondrous plan. 3 'Twas grace that wrote my name,

In thy eternal book ; 'Twas grace who gave me to the Lamb,

Who all my sorrows took. 4 Oh let thy grace inspire,

My soul with strength divine! May all my pow'rs to thee aspire,

And all my days be thine.
