Open now the crystal fountain,
Whence the healing streams do flow, Let thy fiery cloudy pillar
Lead me all my journey through; Strong Deliverer, strong Deliverer,
Be thou still my strength and shield. When I tread the verge of Jordan,
Bid my anxious fears subside ; Death of death, and hell's destruction,
Land me safe on Canaan's side; Songs of praises, songs of praises,
I will ever give to thee. Musing on my habitation,
Musing on my heavenly home,
Come, my Jesus, quickly come:
142. The waiting Soul. C. M. I wait the visits of thy grace,
My Saviour, and my God,
And wash me in thy blood.
A pardon for my sin,
And wait and call on him?
Behold him on the tree,
And shed his blood for me.
O that I might but once be found
In that blest wedding dress, Which in my ears doth often sound,
His blood and righteousness.
And heal my wounded heart,
His sufferings and smart.
Set up therein thy throne; So shall I love thee above all,
And live to thee alone.
That I may faithful prove;
Which only whispers love;
And tells me what to do ;
Do not thy will pursue,
This teaching from my Lord, And learn obedience to thy voice,
Thy soul-reviving word. 144. Happiness only in Christ. C.M. 0 DEAREST Lord, take thou
my heart; Where can such sweetness be,
As I have tasted in thy love,
As I have found in thee?
Thy loving grace does give,
Will unconsumed live.
In hearts so cold as mine,
And all its love be thine.
His prize and purchase just;
For vanity and dust.
For bliss can ne'er be found
And tread on grace's ground. 'Tis heaven on earth to taste his love,
To feel his quick’ning grace; And the blest heaven I hope above,
Is there to see his face.
145. For Christ's Presence. 7.
DEAREST Jesus, come to me,
Oftentimes for thee I sigh,
Shalt alone my bridegroom be, 146. The Lord is my Shepherd. C. M. COMPANIONS of thy little flock,
Dear Lord, we fain would be,
To thee, our Shepherd flee,
Which love and pity fill,
That in thy bosom dwell.
Which leads to pastures fair,
Lot of thy flock so dear,
The sinner's friend to praise;
He'll us to glory raise,
147. For a Blessing on Ordinances. L. M. BELOVED Saviour, faithful friend,
The joy of all thy cross's train,
Or else we worship thee in vain.
If Christ his influence with-hold,
Till we our God by faith behold.
And view thy reconciled face,
in these means
Thy faithful mercies now make known,
And send thy cheering blessing down.
Seeking to know thee as thou art,
And bid thee welcome to our heart.
148. Public Humiliation. C. M.
Like sheep we all have stray'd,
With dust upon our head.
And let us tell our sin;
But Christ may make us clean,
