Hymn 49.: C. M.

Praise for Redemptioni i
W H ERE is a fountain fillid with blood,

I Drawn from Immanuel's veins ; - ,
And sinners plung's beneath that flood,,

Lose all their guilty stains...:* 2 The dying thief rejoiced to see :

That fountain in his day; i And there have I, tho' vile as he,

Wash'd all my sins away., ,.. 3 Dear dying Lamb, thy precious blood,"

Shall never lose its power ; Soon shall the blood-bought Church of God,

Be sav'd to sin no more. 4 E'er since by faith I saw the stream,

Thy flowing wounds supply; : H Redeeming Love has been my theme,

And shall be till I die. 5 Then, in a nobler, sweeter song,

l'II sing thy power to save ; .' When this poor lisping stam’ring tongue,

Lies silent in the grave.

Hymn 50. L.M.

.., The Cross of Christ...
VHEN I survey the wond’rous cross

On which the Prince of glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.

2 Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast

Save in the death of Christ my God;
All the vain things that charm me most,

I sacrifice them to his blood.
3 See, from his head, his hands, his feet,

Sorrow and love flow mingled down!
Did e'er such love and sorrow meet!

Or thorns compose so rich a crown! * 4 Were the whole realm of nature mine,

That were a present far too small;
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.

Hymn 51. C. M. .

In Sickness.
VHEN languor and disease invade

This trembling house of clay, 'Tis sweet to look beyond our cage,

And long to fly away.
2 Sweet to look back and see my name

In life's fair book sat down; -.
Sweet to look forward, and behold

Eternal joys my own.
3 Sweet to reflect how grace divine

My sins on Jesus laid :
Sweet to remember that his blood

My debt of suff’ring paid.
4 Sweet in his righteousness to stand,

A work forever done :
