4 Sinners who in thee believe,
Everlasting life receive;
They with joy behold thy face,
Triumph in thy pardoning grace.
5 Life deriving from thy death.
They proceed from faith to faith,
Walk the new, the living way,
Leading to eternal day.

4 Therefore my Saviour's blood and death Are here the substance of my faith; And shall remain, when I'm call’d hence, My only hope and confidence.

5 For should I e'er so faithful prove, Serve my kind Lord with zeal and love, And spend my life for him I serve, Nor e'er from his commandments swerve; – 6 Yet when my Saviour I shall see, Then shall I have this only plea: “Here is a sinner, who would fain Thro' the Lamb's ransom entrance gain.” 7 Thus Abraham was sav'd by grace, Believing in Christ's righteousness; And all the ransom'd saints in light In this blest song of praise unite:— 8 “All glory, power, and might pertain Unto the Lamb, for he was slain, And hath redeem'd us by his blood, And made us kings and priests to God.” 9 While here on earth I still remain, This doctrine firmly I'll maintain; And both in word and deed proclaim The power of Jesus' saving name. 10 Lord Jesus Christ, all praise to thee, That thou didst deign a man to be, And for each soul which thou hast made Hast an eternal ransom paid.

Who rightly know the wretched state Of sinners void of grace, Ere Christ elects them to enjoy In heavenly realms a place. 2 Grace, how exceeding great to those, Who, ready to despair, Asham'd confess, and truly know, How vile and weak they are; Yet grace, sweet grace, most sweetly calls, “Directly come, who will, Just as you are, for Christ receives Poor, helpless sinners still.”

With Christ joint-heirs of heaven.

4 Now, dearest Lord, we inly pray,
That in thy service we
May active, true, and faithful prove,
Deriving strength from thee:
O may we still in thee abide,
For babes we are most weak,
Poor sinners still, who without thee
Nought good can do or speak.

5 We thirst, O Lord, give us this day,
To taste more of thy grace,
More of that stream, which from the
rock
Flow'd thro' the wilderness:
'Tis grace alone that feeds our souls,
Grace keeps us inly poor:
And O that nothing but thy grace
May rule us evermore.

328.3: T. 16.

WHEN a sinner in affliction
Mourneth on account of sin,

Feels the Spirit's deep conviction,
But no power of faith within :-

2. While the troubled soul is sighing, “Where shall I find Jesus, where?”

And with tears of anguish crying, “O that he my Saviour were:”

3 In a moment stands before us Jesus with his pierced side. Now we find, that he's desirous US from wrath to screen and lo
