Sinee thou wouldst have the sinner blest,
Now let me in thine image shine; Nor ever from thy footsteps move,
But more than conquer through thy love. 4 Be it according to thy will!
Set my imprison'd spirit free;
Into thy glorious liberty,
Luthers.] HYMN 102. 6 lines 8's. 1
from this instant, now, I will
YET. my-offended Father cry:
My base ingratitude I feel,
Vilest of all thy children, 1;
Yet will I thee, my Father, own.
And rescu'd me from passion's power
Nor let the greedy grave devour:
Nor ever love thy child again?
To give me up, so long pursu'd ?
And leave thy creature in his blood:
To perish in my sins at last?
If weeping at thy feet I fall,
But pity and forgive me all ;
PRAYER AND INTERCESSION.
Kirke.] HYMN 103. L. M. 1
HEPHERD of souls, with pitying eye,
The thousands of our Israel see: To thee in their behalf we cry,
Ourselves but newly found in thee. 2 See where o'er desert wastes they err,
And neither food nor feeder have; Nor fold, nor place of refuge near;
For no man cares their souls to save, 3 Wild as the untaught Indian's brood,
The Christian savages remain; Strangers, yea, enemies to God,
They make thee spill thy blood in vain. 4 Thy people, Lord, are sold for nought;
Nor know they their Redeemer nigh: They perish whom thyself hast bought;
Their souls for lack of knowledge die. 5 The pit its mouth hath open'd wide,
To swallow up its careless prey :
Hast died to bear their sins away?
Remember, Lord, thy dying groans : The meed of all thy sufferings these;
O claim them for thy ransom'd ones. 7 Extend to these thy pard’ning grace:
To these be thy salvation show'd: O add them to thy chosen race!
O sprinkle all their hearts with blood!
8 Still let the publicans draw near:
Open the door of faith and heaven; And grant their hearts thy word to hear,
And witness all their sins forgiven.

ESUS, my Advocate above,
one of love :
If now for me prevails lliy prayer,
Almighty Advocate, to thine.
And groan my nature's weight to feel!
Immeasurably far from God.
My earnest suit present, and gain:
A keener appetite for thee.
Give me thyself, or else I die!
My life, my only heaven thou art;
O might I feel thee in my heart!
And witness with the blood :
And give us eyes to see;
Hath surely died for me.
That Jesus is the Lord;
And breathe the living word:
Our intrest in his blood ;
“ Thou art my Lord, my God!" 3 O that the world might know
The all-atoning Lamb!
The saving power impart;
And speak in every heart. 4 Inspire the living faith,
Which, whosoe'er receives,
And consciously believes :
And doth the mountain move ;
And perfects them in love.

CAKER, Saviour of mankind,
Who hast on me bestow' An immortal soul, design'd
To be the house of God:
Never, never to remove;
And full of power and love. 2 Bid me in thine image rise,
A saint, a creature new;
And pure and happy too;
That I should in thee be blest :
For ever, ever rest.
Fulfil my heart's desire,
And rise in raptures higher.
Till with ravish'd eyes I see ;
To ail eternity!
Euphrates.] HYMN 107. 7's, 6's, & 18. 1 OD of my salvation, hear,
Simply do I now draw near,
Thy blessing to receive;
But to thy wounds for refuge flee:
Thy blood was shed for me.
