Thou canst, thou wilt my helper be;
The faithful God of love.
Thou wilt not let me sin ;
And all thy mind brought in.
I faithfully commend : Assur'd that thou through life wilt save, And show thyself beyond the grave
My everlasting Friend.
Winter.] HYMN 359. C. M.
Spirit of health, and life, and pow'r,
And perfect liberty. 2 Love only can the conquest win,
The strength of sin subdue, Come, O my Saviour, cast out sin,
And form my soul anew! 3 No longer then my heart shall mourn,
While sanctify'd by grace, I only for his glory burn,
And always see his face. Broadmead.] HYMN 360. 6 lines 8’s. 1 VOUNTAIN of life and all my joy, The breath thou giv'st, for thee employ,
And wait to taste thy perfect grace :
No more forsaken and forlorn,
I bless the day that I was born! 2 Preserv'd through faith, by power divine,
A miracle of grace I stand !
Jesus, upheld by thy right-hand,
I bless the day that I was born.
I was, but now defy its power:
My soul is more than conqueror :
And bless the day that I was born.
And let me now be fill'd with God! Live to declare I'm say'd from sin :
And if I seal the truth with blood, My soul from out the body torn, Shall bless the day that I was born!
Monmouth.) HYMN 361. 6 lines 8's. 1 COME, Holy Ghost, all-quick’ning fire!
Sprinkled with th' atoning blood ;
And know that I am born of God. 2 Thy witness with my spirit bear, That God, my God, inhabits there :
Thou, with the Father, and the Son,
Til perfect we are made in one,
3 When wilt thou my whole heart subdue? Come, Lord, and form my soul anew,
Emptied of pride, and wrath, and hell: Less than the least of all thy store Of mercies, I myself abhor :
All, all my vileness may I feel. 4 Humble, and teachable, and mild, O may I, as a little child,
My lowly Master's steps pursue ! Be anger to my soul unknown; Hate, envy, jealousy, be gone;
In love create thou all things new, 5 Let earth no more my heart divide ; With Christ may I be crucify'd;
To thee with my whole heart aspire ;
Be thou alone my one desire!
Nor earth, nor hell I then shall fear;
Glory in dissolution near.
Beholding thee with open face; Call’d the full power of faith to prove, Let all my hallow'd heart be love,
And all my spotless life be praise. 8 Come, Holy Ghost, all-quick’ning fire, My consecrated heart inspire,
Sprinkled with th' atoning blood :
And know that I am one with God.
Swanwick.] HYMN 362. C. M.
My Saviour, and my Head,
Hath rais'd him from the dead.
And rose again for me ; Fully and freely justified,
That I might live to thee. 3 Eternal life to all mankind
Thou hast in Jesus given :
The happiness of heaven.
In Abraham's footsteps tread; And wait, expecting to receive
The Christ, the promis’d Seed. 5 Faith in thy power, thou seest I have,
For thou this faith hast wrought; Dead souls thou callest from their grave,
And speakest worlds from nought. 6 Things that are not, as though they were,
Thou callest by their name; Present with thee the future are,
With thee, the great I AM.
Self-desperate I believe;
Thou shalt thy Spirit give.
But faithful is my Lord;
For God hath spoke the word.
9 Faith, mighty faith, the promise sees,
And looks to that alone;
And cries, “ It shall be done!" 10 To thee the glory of thy power
And faithfulness I give!
And Christ in me shall live.
Thou never wilt reprove;
And perfect me in love. Clarendon.) HYMN 363. C. M. 1 EEPEN the wound thy hands have made
In this weak, helpless soul; Till mercy with its balmy aid,
Descend to make me whole.
Enable me t' endure;
Hath wrought a perfect cure.
Which all contains in one; Enlarge my heart to understand
The mystery unknown. 4 O that with all thy saints I might
By sweet experience prove,
And depth of perfect lovė!
And open, Lord, my soul, Thy own fulness to require,
And comprehend the whole:
