4 Forgive, and make my nature whole;
My inbred malady remove;
To perfect holiness and love.
Pierce to the bottom of my heart; Its evils cure, its wants supply,
And bid my unbelief depart!
Prepare for thee the holiest place!
And fill thy house with endless praise, 3 Let me, according to thy word,
A tender, contrite heart receive, Which grieves at having griev'd its Lord,
And never can itself forgive.
A heart that cannot faithless prove;
All praise, all mcekness, and all love.
Swanwick.) HYMN 340. C. M. 1 OD of eternal truth and grace,
Thy word, thy oath, to Abraham's race,
In us, ev'n us fulfil.
Thy image here retrieve :
The life of angels live.
Which cannot ask in vain;
Till I my suit obtain:
4 Till thou into my soul inspire
The perfect love unknown:
“ Whate'er thou wilt be done." 5 But is it possible that I
Should live, and sin no more? Lord, if on thee I dare rely,
The faith shall bring the power. 6 On me the faith divine bestow,
Which doth the mountain move; And all my spotless life shall show,
Th’ omnipotence of love. Triumph.] HYMN 341. L. M.
FIRST PART. 1
Which shall from age to age endure; Whose word, when heav'n and earth shall pass,
Remains and stands for ever sure: 2 That I thy mercy may proclaim,
That all mankind thy truth may see: Hallow thy great and glorious name,
And perfect holiness in me. 3 Thy sanctifying Spirit pour,
To quench my thirst, and make me clean ; Now, Father, let the gracious show'r
Descend, and make me pure from sin. 4 Purge me from every sinful blot,
My idols all be cast aside,
From all the filth of self and pride. 5 Give me a new, a perfect heart,
From doubt, and fear, and sorrow free; The mind which was in Christ impart,
And let my spirit cleave to thee.
6 O take this heart of stone away!
Thy sway it doth not, cannot own : Io me no longer let it stay;
O take away this heart of stone ! 7 O that I now, from sin releas’d,
Thy word may to the utmost prove! Enter into the promis'd rest,
The Canaan of thy perfect love.
1 FATHER, supply my every need ;
Sustain the life thyself hast giv'n; Oh! grant the never-failing bread,
The manna that comes down from heav'n! 2 The gracious fruits of righteousness,
Thy blessings' unexhausted store, In me abundantly increase,
Nor ever let me hunger more! 3 Let me no more in deep complaint,
“My leanness, O my leanness !” cry; Alone consum'd with pining want,
Of all my Father's children I.
Thy joyous presence shall remove!
A whole eternity of love.
1 HOLY, and true, and righteous Lord,
I want to prove thy perfect will:
And stamp me with thy Spirit's seal 2 Open my faith's interior eye;
Display thy glory from above;
And all I am shall sink and die,
Lost in astonishment and love! 3 Confound, o'erpower me by thy grace ;
I would be by myself abhorr’d;
All glory be to Christ my Lord! 4 Now let me gain perfection's height;
Now let me into nothing fall;
And feel that Christ is all in all !
Turin.] HYMN 342. 6 lines 7's.
INCE the Son hath made me free,
Glory in thy perfect love.
Late in Jesus reconcil'd;
All the life and heaven of love. 3 Lord, I will not let thee go,
Till the blessing thou bestow :
Bless me; for I will prevail.
Change my nature into thine!
5 Holy Ghost, no more delay!
Come, and in thy temples stay!
Paradise.] HYMN 343. C. M.
Till thou shalt bid us rise; Restor’d to our unsinning state,
To love's sweet paradise.
From all indwelling sin
Shall make us throughly clean. 3 Since thou would'st have us free froin sin,
And pure as those above;
And perfect us in love!
Come quickly, gracious Lord,
According to thy word.
Thy love diffus'd abroad!
For ever fill’d with God!
Clarendon.] HYMN 344. C. M.
CHAT is our calling's glorious hope,
But inward holiness?
