CONTAINING INTRODUCTORY HYMNS.
SECTION I. Exhorting Sinners.
FOR a thousand tongues to sing
2 My gracious Master, and my GoD,
To spread through all the earth abroad
3 JESUS! the name that charms our fears,
4 He breaks the power of cancell❜d sin,
His blood can make the foulest clean,
5 He speaks, and listening to his voice, New life the dead receive;
The mournful, broken hearts rejoice;
Hear him, ye deaf; his praise, ye dumb,
7 Look unto him, ye nations; own
Look, and be sav'd through faith alone,
8 See all your sins on Jesus laid;
His soul was once an offering made
9 Awake from guilty nature's sleep,
10 With me, your chief, ye then shall know,
YOME, sinners, to the gospel-feast;
Ye need not one be left behind,
2 Sent by my Lord, on you 1 call;
Come, all the world; come, sinner, thou, All things in Christ are ready now.
3 Come, all ye souls by sin opprest, Ye restless wanderers after rest;
Ye poor, and maim'd, and halt, and blind, In Christ a hearty welcome find.
4. Come, and partake the gospel feast;
Ye all may live; for Christ hath died.
7 His love is mighty to compel ;
His conquering love consent to feel;
Come in, this moment, at his call,
10's & 11's.
ALL that pass by, To Jesus draw
He utters a cry, Ye sinners, give ear! From hell to retrieve you, He spreads out his hands; [stands. Now, now, to receive you, He graciously 2 If any man thirst, And happy would be, The vilest and worst May come unto me; May drink of my Spirit, Excepted is none, Lay claim to my merit, And take for his own.
3 Whoever receives The life-giving word, In Jesus believes, His God and his Lord, In him a pure river Of life shall arise; Shall, in the believer, Spring up to the skies. 4 My God and my Lord! Thy call I obey; My soul on thy word Of promise I stay; Thy kind invitation I gladly embrace, Athirst for salvation, Salvation by grace. 50 hasten the hour, Send down from above The Spirit of power, Of health, and of love: Of filial fear, Of knowledge and grace: Of wisdom and prayer, Of joy, and of praise: 6 The Spirit of faith, Of faith in thy blood, Which saves us from wrath, And brings us to God: [sin, Removes the huge mountain Of indwelling And opens a fountain That washes us clean.
HO! every one that thirsts, draw nigh;
('Tis God invites the fallen race ;)
Mercy and free salvation buy ;
Buy wine, and milk, and gospel-grace.
Nothing ye in exchange shall give, Leave all you have and are behind; Frankly the gift of God receive, Pardon and peace in Jesus find.
