If thou withdraw thyself from me,

Ah, whither shall I go? 2 What did thine only Son endure,

Before I drew my breath! What pain, what labour to secure

My soul from endless death! 3 O Jesus, could I this believe,

I now should feel thy power ; Now my poor soul thou wouldst retrieve,

Nor let me wait one hour. 4 Author of faith, to thee I lift

- My weary, longing eyes :
O let me now receive that gift,

My soul without it dies.
5 Surely thou canst not let me die;

O speak, and I shall live;
And here I will unwearied lie,

Till thou thy spirit give.
6 The worst of sinners would rejoice:

Could they but see thy face:
O let me hear thy quick-ning voice,

And taste thy pardoning grace ?

Hymn 4. S. M.
CHARGE to keep I have,.

A God to glorify;
A never-dying soul to save,

And fit it for the sky.

To serve the present age,

My calling to fulfil :
O may it all my powers engage,

To do my Master's will. 2 Arm me with jealous care,

As in thy sight to live ;
And O thy servant, LORD, prepare,

A strict account to give !
Help me to watch and pray,

And on thyself rely,
Assured if I my trust betray,

I shall for ever die.

Hymn 5. C. M. NYOME, let us who in Christ believe,

1 Our Common SAVIOUR praise : To him, with joyful voices, give

The glory of his grace.
2 He now stands knocking at the door

Of every sinner's heart :
The worst need keep him out no more,

Or force him to depart. 3 Through grace we hearken to thy voice,

Yield to be saved from sin :
In sure and certain hope rejoice,

That thou wilt enter in. 4 Come quickly in thou heavenly guest!

Nor ever hence remove ;
