2 May we grow in pure affection,
Love the weakest child of grace.
Feel our souls aspire above;
HYMN 224. L. M. [#]
He hath done all things well. 1 COME, let us join in sacred songs, With sweetest music on our tongues ; Let every voice conspire to tell, Our Saviour hath done all things well. 2 Under the law he came for us,
And for our sins was made a curse;
3 The legal dispensation closed
When Jesus from the dead arose ;
4 He'll finish sin, and man restore;
HYMN 225. P. M. [#]
Christ's Glories divine.
1 My gracious Redeemer I'll love, His praises aloud I'll proclaim, And join with the armies above
To shout his adorable name.
2 To gaze on his glories divine
Shall be my eternal employ,
Perfection of glory reigns there.
HYMN 226. L. M. [#]
Cloud and Pillar of Fire.
1 LONG as the darkening cloud abode,
2 Father of spirits, Light of light,
Lift up the cloud, and rend the veil; Shine forth in fire, amid that night, Whose blackness makes the heart to fail.
3 "Tis done! to Christ the power is given;
4 Nor shall those mists, that brood o'er time, Forever blind the mental eye; They backward roll, and light sublime Beams glory from our God on high. 5 Adoring nations hail the dawn,
All kingdoms bless the noontide beam, And light, unfolding life's full morn, Is vast creation's deathless theme.
HYMN 227. C. M. [#]
1 JESUS, I love thy charming name;
My tongue would sing thy praise so loud
2 All my capacious powers can wish
3 Thy grace shall dwell upon my heart,
4 I'll speak the honours of thy name
And, dying, clasp thee in my arms,—
HYMN 228. C. M. [#]
Christ and Aaron.
1 IN Christ, the Lord, our eyes behold
2 Once in the circuit of a year,
With blood-but not his ownAaron within the veil appeared, Before the golden throne.
3 But Jesus, by his precious blood,
4 The King of glory, now, he reigns, On Zion's heavenly hill;
Looks like the Lamb that once was slain, But wears his priesthood still.
5 Our Intercessor's lofty praise
HYMN 229. S. M. [#]
Grace and Love of Christ.
10 THE transcendent loye
2 Jesus invited near
The vilest of our race:
3 Let Pharisees exclaim, And all this grace despise, But we will love the Saviour's name; "Tis wondrous in our eyes.
4 Yes, to life's utmost end,
Thy sovereign grace we'll show, And own thee for the sinner's Friend, And sin's eternal Foe.
HYMN 230. H. M. [#]
1 Hail, everlasting Spring!
Still they endure,
2 Blest be his wounded side,
And fit for God.
