2 He bids us build each other up,
And gather'd into one,
We hand in hand go on.
We all delight to prove,
The grace through ev'ry vessel flows, ? In purest streams of love. 4 Ev'n now we think and speak the same,
And cordially agree,
In perfect harmony.
The common peace we feel ;
A joy unspeakable.
In Jesus be so sweet,
When round his throne we meet !
Jehudijah.] HYMN 438.
Our souls upon thy truth we stay ; Accomplish now thy faithful word,
And give, O give us all one way! 2 O let us all join hand in hand,
Who seek redemption in thy blood;
And build the temple of our God. 3 Thou only canst our wills control,
Our wild unruly passions bind;
And make us of one heart and mind.
4 Speak but the reconciling word,
The winds shall cease, the waves subside ; We all shall praise our common Lord,
Our Jesus, and him crucified.
Send down thy mild, pacific Dove;
And breathe the spirit of thy love.
Delightful lesson of thy grace:
And jointly glory in thy praise. ny O let us take a softer mould ;
Blended and gather'd into thee;
Where all is love and harmony.
And send a peaceful answer down;
Unite and perfect us in one!
That God hath sent thee from above,
And every soul displays thy love. Redeeming Love.] HYMN 439. 4 lines 7's.
OD of Love, that hear'st the pray’r,
Kindly for thy people care:
Love us, save us to the end.
From the flattering tempter's pow'r;
3 Cut off our dependence vain,
On the help of feeble man ;
Stay us on thy only love!
Let not these thy people join,
Drag us from our trust in thee.
Till they sink in their own eyes,
Lay their honour at thy feet. 8 Never let the world break in,
Fix a mighty gulf between;
Priz'd and lov’d by God alone. 7 Let us still to thee look up,
Thee, thy Israel's Strength and Hope ;
Jesus, and him crucified.
Look we down on earthly kings!
AVIOUR of all, to thee we bow,
We hear thy voice, and open now
Our hearts to entertain our Lord. 2 Come in, come in, thou heavenly Guest,
Delight in what thyself hast gir'n; On thy own gifts and graces feast, And make the contrite heart thy heav'n.
3 Smell the sweet odour of our prayers,
Our sacrifice of praise approve;
Who rest in thy redeeming love. 4 Beneath thy shadow let us sit,
Call us thy friends, and love, and bride ; And bid us freely drink and eat,
Thy dainties, and be satisfied. 5 O let us on thy fulness feed !
And eat thy flesh, and drink thy blood! Jesus, thy blood is drink indeed,
Jesus, thy flesh is angels' food.
Faith makes thy fulness all our own;
Rest.] HYMN 441. 6 lines 7's. 1 ENTRE of our hopes thou art,
Stamp thine image on our heart ;
Fill us now with heavenly fires ;
Seal our souls for ever thine!
Levell’d at one common aim :
Purge in the refining fame :
On to perfect holiness. 3 Let us altogether rise,
To thy glorious life restor’d; Here regain our Paradise,
Here prepare to meet our Lord: Here enjoy the earnest giv'n: Travel hand in hand to heav'n!
Broadmead.] HYMN 442. 6 lines 8's. 1
J in thee!
CESUS, with kindest pity see,
The noblest joys of heavenly love! 2 Before thy glorious eyes we spread
The wish which doth from thee proceed ;
And back to the pure fountain flow. 3 A drop of that unbounded sea,
O Lord, resorb it into thee!
Thy whole immensity of love. 4 A spark of that ethereal fire,
Still let it to its source aspire :
And blaze through all eternity.
Of harmony and love! 2 Where streams of bliss from Christ the spring,
Descend on ev'ry soul ;
Shades and revives the whole.
