3 Consume our lusts as rotten wood,
Consume our stony hearts within;
Consume the dust the serpent’s food,
And dry up all the streams of sin.

4 Its body totally destroy!
Thyself the Lord, the God approve :
And fill our hearts with holy joy,
And fervent zeal, and perfect love.

5 O that the fire from heav'n might fall!
Our sins its ready victims find:
Seize on our sins, and burn up all,
Nor leave the least remains behind.

6 Then shall our prostrate souls adore
The Lord! He is the God, confess:
He is the God of saving pow'r?
He is the God of hallowing grace.

1 OME, O my God, the promise seal,
This mountain sin remove :
Now in my waiting soul reveal
The virtue of thy love.

2 I want thy life, thy purity,
Thy righteousness brought in:
I ask, desire, and trust in thee
To be redeem’d from sin.

3 For this as taught by thee I pray,
And can no longer doubt:

Remove from hence, to sin I say,
Be cast this moment out.

4 Anger and sloth, desire and pride,
This moment be subdu'd :
Be cast into the crimson tide
Of my Redeemer’s blood.

5 Saviour, to thee my soul looks up,
My present Saviour thou!
In all the confidence of hope
I claim the blessing now :

6 'Tis done; thou dost this moment save, With full salvation bless; Redemption through thy blood I have, | And spotless love and peace.

1 UICKEN’D with our immortal head,
Who daily, Lord, ascend with thee,
Redeem’d from sin, and free indeed,
We taste our glorious liberty.

2 Sav'd from the fear of hell and death,
With joy we seek the things above,
And all thy saints the spirit breathe,
Of pow'r, sobriety, and love.

3 Pure love to God thy members find,
Pure love to ev'ry soul of man;
And in thy sober, spotless mind,
Saviour, our heav'n on earth we gain.

4 Author and sum of heav'nly bliss: Thee, let our souls and bodies prove, Implung’d in that unknown abyss, r That ocean of redeeming love :

1 HEN, my Saviour, shall I be
Perfectly resign'd to thee?
Poor and vile in my own eyes,
Only in thy wisdom wise?
2 Only thee content to know,
Ignorant of all below:

Only guided by thy light?
Only mighty in thy might?

3 So I may thy Spirit know,
Let him as he listeth blow :
Let the mammer be unknown,
So I may with thee be one.

4 Fully in my life express
All the heights of holiness;
Sweetly let my spirit prove,
All the depths of humble love.

1 ESUS, in whom the Godhead's rays

Beam forth with mildest majesty;
I see thee full of truth and grace,
And come for all I want to thee.

2 Save me from pride, the plague expel,
Jesus thine humble self impart;
O let thy mind within me dwell:
O give me lowliness of heart!

3 Enter thyself, and cast out sin: o
Thy spotless purity bestow;
Touch me and make the leper clean,
Wash me and I am white as snow.

4 Sprinkle me, Saviour, with thy blood,
And all thy gentleness is mine;
And plunge me in the purple flood,
Till all I am is lost in thine.

1 ESUS, to thee my heart I bow;
Strange flames far from my soul remove :
Fairest among ten thousand thou,
Be thou my Lord, my life, my love.

2 All heaven thou fill'st with pure desire:
O shine upon my frozen breast !
With sacred love my heart inspire,
Let me thy hidden sweetness taste. *

3 I see thy garments roll’d in blood,
Thy streaming head, thy hands, thy side.
All hail, thou suff’ring, conqu’ring God!
Now man shall live, for Christ hath died.

4 O kill in me this rebel sin,
And triumph o'er my willing breast:
Restore thine image, Lord, therein,
And lead me to thy Father's rest.

5 Let earthly love be far away :
Saviour, be thou my love alone;
No more may mine usurp the sway;
In me thy only will be done.

6 And thou true Witness, spotless Lamb,
All things for thee I count but loss;
My sole desire, my constant aim,
My only glory, be thy cross.

1 TF now I have acceptance found
With thee, or favour in thy sight,
Still with thy grace and truth surround,
And arm me with thy Spirit’s might.

2 O may I hearthy warning voice,
And timely fly from danger near,
With rev’rence unto thee rejoice,
And love thee with a filial fear !

3 Still hold my soul in second life,
And suffer not my feet to slide :
Support me in the glorious strife,
And comfort me on ev'ry side,

4 O give me faith, and faith’s increase, inish the work begun in me, Preserve my soul in perfect peace, And let me always rest on thee!

5 Olet thy gracious Spirit guide And bring me to the promis’d land: Where righteousness and peace reside, And all submit to love’s command 1

6 A land where milk and honey flow,
And springs of pure delights arise,
Delights which I shall shortly know,
When I regain my paradise.

I O COME, and dwell in me,
Spirit of pow'r within:
And bring the glorious liberty
From sorrow, fear, and sin!

2 This inward, dire disease, .
Spirit of health remove,
Spirit of finish’d holiness,
Spirit of perfect love.

3 Hasten the joyful day,
Which shall my sins consume;
When old things shall be done away,
And all things new become.

4 I want the witness, Lord,
That all I do is right,
According to thy will and word,
Well pleasing in thy sight.
5 I ask no higher state,
Indulge me but in this:
And soon or later then translate
To my eternal bliss.
