INFLUENCES AND GRACES OF
HYMN 144. B. 2. L. M.
Green's Hundredth, Bath. The effusion of the Spirit ; or, the success of the gospel. 1 GREAT was the day, the joy was great,
When the divine disciples met ;
And sat like tongues of cloven flame. 2 What gifts, what miracles he gave !
And power to kill, and power to save: Furnish'd their tongues with wondrous words,
Instead of shields, and spears, and swords. 3 Thus arm'd, he sent the champions forth,
From east to west, from south to north : Go! and assert your Saviour's cause;
Go! spread the mystery of his cross. 4 These weapons of the holy war,
Of what almighty force they are,
And lay the proudest rebel low !
Are by these heavenly arms subdu'd ;
And hates the doctrine of the cross. 6 Great King of grace, my heart subdue :
I would be led in triumph too,
Hymn 140. B. 1. C. M.
St. Asaphs, St. Martins. 4 living and a dead faith. Collected from several scriplures. 1 MISTAKEN souls ! that dream of heav'n,
And make their empty boast
Of inward joys, and sins forgiven,
While they are slaves to lust. 2 Vain are our fancies, airy flights,
If faith be cold and dead;
To Christ, the living head.
'Tis faith that works by love; That bids all sinful joys depart,
And lifts the thoughts above. 4 'Tis faith that conquers earth and hell
By a celestial power ;
In the decisive hour.
As well as trust his grace ;
For his own holiness. 6 When from the curse he sets us free,
He makes our natures clean,
The minister of sin.
And seals our peace with God; Jesus and his salvation came
By water and by blood.)
HYMN 112. B. 1. C. M.
The brazen serpent high ;
The camp forbore to die.
2 "Look upward in the dying hour,
“And live," the prophet cries; But Christ performs a nobler cure,
When faith lifts up her eyes. 3 High on the cross the Saviour hung;
High in the heavens he reigns : Here sinners, by th' old serpent stung,
Look, and forget their pains.
A dying world revives ;
St. Thomas, Dover.
Faith in Christ our sacrifice.
On Jewish altars slain,
Or wash away the stain.
Takes all our sins away ; A sacrifice of nobler name
And richer blood than they. 3 My faith would lay her hand
On that dear head of thine, While like a penitent I stand,
And there confess my sin. 4 My soul looks back to see
The burdens thou didst bear, When hanging on the cursed tree,
And hopes her guilt was there. 5 Believing, we rejoice
To see the curse remove;
And sing his bleeding love.
Hymn 100. B. 1. L. M. 271
Believe and be saved.
Did Christ, the Son of God appear;
No flaming sword nor thunder there, 2 Such was the pity of our God,
He lov'd the race of man so well,
Of sins, and save our souls from hell. 3 Sinners, believe the Saviour's word,
Trust in his mighty name, and live;
His hands a thousand blessings give. 4 But vengeance and damnation lies
On rebels who refuse the grace ;
To souls that inourn the sins they've done; Children of wrath made heirs of heav'n,
By faith in God's eternal Son.
The inward pangs of pious grief,
The stubborn sin of unbelief.
Under the wrath of God he lies;
Hymn 120. B. 1. C. M.
Faith of things unseen.
Of things beyond our sight,
And dwells in heavenly light. 2 It sets times past in present view,
Brings distant prospects home, Of things a thousand years ago,
Or thousand years to come. 3 By faith we know the worlds were made
By God's almighty word ;
By faith obey'd the Lord.
Built by th' eternal hands;
We walk by faith, not by sight. 1 'TIS by the faith of joys to come,
We walk through deserts dark as night; Till we arrive at heaven, our home,
Faith is our guide, and faith our light. 2 The want of sight she well supplies,
She makes the pearly gates appear :
And brings eternal glories near.
While faith inspires a heavenly ray,
