His mercy will the guilt forgive

Of those who seek his face.
5 Bow to the sceptre of his word,

Renouncing every sin;
Submit to him, your sovereign Lord,

And learn his will divine. 6 His love exceeds your highest thoughts !

He pardons like a God?
He will forgive your numerous faults

Through our Redeemer's blood.

S. M. 168

Sinners invited to the Ark of Safety.
OH! cease, my wandering soul,

On restless wing to roam;
All this wide world, to either pole,

Has not for thee a home. 2 Behold the ark of God!

Behold the open door;
Oh! haste to gain that dear abode,

And rove, my soul, no more. 3 There, safe thou shalt abide,

There, sweet shall be thy rest,
And every longing satisfied,

With full salvation blest.

98, 78 & 4. Sinners entreated by the Mercies of Christ. COME, ye sinners—poor and wretched,

Come in mercy's gracious hour!
Jesus ready stands to save you,
Full of pity, love, and power:

He is able-
He is willing-doubt no more,

2 Come, ye thirsty-ye are welcome!

God's free bounty glorify:
True belief, and true repentance,
Every grace which brings us nigh,

Without money-
Come to Jesus Christ, and buy.
3 Agonizing in the garden,

Lo! the Saviour prostrate lies !
On the bloody cross behold him!
Hear him cry before he dies-

" It is finished !"-
Heaven's atoning sacrifice !
4 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.

H. M. 170

Suficiency of Christ's Atonement.
YE dying sons of men,

Immerged in sin and wo!
Now mercy calls again;

Its message is to you!
Ye perishing and guilty, come!
In mercy's arms there yet is room.
2 No longer now delay,

Nor vain excuses frame;
Christ bids you come to-day,

Though poor, and blind, and lame:
All things are ready-sinners, come!
For every trembling soul there's room.

3 Drawn by his dying love,

Ye wandering sheep, draw near!
He calls you from above,

The Shepherd's voice now hear:
To him whoever will may come,
In Jesus' arms there still is room.

C. M. 171

Sinners entreated by the Mercies of Christ. SINNERS, behold the Lamb of God,

Who takes away our guilt; Look to th’ atoning precious blood,

That for our sins he spilt.
2 Sinners, to Jesus now draw near,

Invited by his word;
The chief of siners need not fear;

Behold the Lamb of God!
3 Backsliders, too, the Saviour calls,

And washes in his blood :
Arise-return from grievous falls;

Behold the Lamb of God!
4 In every state, and time, and place,

Nought plead but Jesus' blood; However wretched be your case,

Behold the Lamb of God! 5 Spirit of grace, to us apply

Immanuel's precious blood;
That we may, with thy saints on high,
Behold the Lamb of God.

THE Spirit, in our hearts,

Is whispering, 'Sinner, come;' The bride, the church of Christ, proclaims

To all his children, 'Come!' 2 Let him that heareth say

To all about him, 'Come!
Let him that thirsts for righteousness,

To Christ, the fountain, come!

Oh let him freely come,
And freely drink the stream of life ;

'Tis Jesus bids him come. 4 Lo! Jesus, who invites,

Declares, 'I quickly come:

O blest Redeemer, come!

OH what amazing words of grace

Are in the gospel found!
Suited to every sinner's case,

Who knows the joyful sound,

Are freely welcome here;
Salvation, like a river, rolls,

Abundant, free, and clear. 3 Come then, with all your wants and wounds,

Your every burden bring :
Here love-unchanging love-abounds,

A deep, celestial spring !
4 Whoever will—oh gracious word!

Shall of this stream partake ;
Come, thirsty souls—and bless the Lord,

And drink for Jesus' sake!
5 Millions of sinners, vile as you,

Have here found life and peace;
Come, then, and prove its virtues too,

And drink, adore, and bless.
