4 Light, in thy light, О may I see,
Thy grace and mercy prove! Reviv'd, and cheer'd, and bless'd by thee,
The God of pard’ning love.
And let thy happy child
The Godhead reconcil'd.
On me, through grace forgiv'n;
And then the joys of heaven!
Josiah.] HYMN 113. 7's & 6's. 1 O Love,
Thy holy arm display ;
In this my evil day:
Woman's Seed, appear within !
Against the face of sin.
And always feel thee near,
My soul would scorn to fear:
Though the gates of hell assail,
They never could prevail. 3 Rock of my salvation, haste,
Extend thy ample shade,
And screen my naked head;
Thou my sure protection be;
Shelter me from Satan's power,
Till I am fix'd on thee. 4 Set upon thyself my feet,
And make me surely stand;
Cover me with thy hand;
Never from my fence remove;
Of everlasting love.

thy wili to prove;
My Potter, stamp on me, thy clay,
Thine only stamp of love:
I know that it is thine:
Which shall for ever shine.
To save mankind assert;
Thy nature on my heart:
Into my soul come down;
That I have Christ put on. 3 O plant in me thy mind!
O fix in me thy home!
Come to the waters, come!
To all his bowels move;
That God is only love.

Parvus.] HYMN 115. L. M. 1
Be thou my hope, my joy, my rest; The glories that compose thy name
Stand all engag'd to make me blest. 2 Thou great and good, thou just and wise,
Thou art my Father and my God! And I am thine by sacred ties,
Thy son, thy servant bought with blood, 3 With heart, and eyes, and lifted hands,
For thee I long, to thee I look, As travellers in thirsty lands
Pant for the cooling water-brook. 4 E'en life itself, without thy love,
No lasting pleasure can afford;
If I were banish'd from thee, Lord ! 5 I'll lift my hands, I'll raise my voice,
While I have breath to pray or praise :
And spend the remnant of my days.
The darkness shineth as the light, Search, prove my heart, it pants for thee,
O burst these bonds, and set it free! 2 Wash out its stains, refine its dross,
Nail my affections to the cross ;
Be clean, as thou, my Lord, art clean. 3 If in this darksome wild I stray,
Be thou my light, be thou my way;
4 When rising floods my soul o'erflow,
When sinks my heart in waves of wo,
And raise my head, and cheer my heart. 5 Saviour, where'er thy steps I see,
I Dauntless, untir’d, I follow thee; O let thy hand support me still,
And lead me to thy holy hill!
My strength proportion to my day;
Bowrton.] HYMN 117. 10's & 11's. 1 COME TOME, Lord, from above, the mountains
remove, O’erturn all that hinders the course of thy love; My bosom inspire, enkindle the fire, And wrap my whole soul in the flames of desire. 2 I languish and pine for the comfort divine, O when shall I say, my Beloved is mine? I've chose the good part, my portion thou art: O Love, let me find thee, O God, in my heart! 3 For this my heart sighs, nothing else can
suffice; How, Lord, can I purchase the pearl of great
price? It cannot be bought; thou know'st I have nought, Not an action, a word, or a truly good thought. 4 But I hear a voice say, without money you
may Receive it, whoever hath nothing to pay: Who on Jesus relies, without money or price, The pearl of forgiveness and holiness buys.
5 The blessing is free, so, Lord, let it be: 1 yield that thy love should be given to me; I freely receive what thou freely dost give, And consent to thy love, in thine Eden to live. 6 The gift I embrace, the Giver I praise, And ascribe my salvation to Jesus's grace; It came from above, the foretaste I prove, And I soon shall receive all thy fulness of love.
Ebor.] HYMN 118. C. M. 1
EING of beings, God of love,
To thee our hearts we raise;
And gladly sing thy praise.
Our sacrifice receive;
To thee ourselves we give.
For all thy mercy's store;
Is that we ask for more.
Our hearts to embrace thy will;
With all thy fulness fill.
Shed in our hearts abroad;
And be with Christ in God.
Thy feeble creature's cry;
And set me up on high,
JESUS my Lord attend
