2 May we grow in pure affection,
Feel an overflowing peace,
Love as Jesus gives direction,

Love the weakest child of grace.
Jesus, may we now adore thee,

Feel our souls aspire above;
Crown us all with rays of glory,
Crown us with immortal love.

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;
He bore our crimes, which on him fell:
Our Saviour hath done all things well.

3 The legal dispensation closed

When Jesus from the dead arose ;
All righteousness he did fulfil :
Our Saviour hath done all things well.

4 He'll finish sin, and man restore;
All creatures shall their God adore ;
The anthem long and loud shall swell,
For Jesus hath done all things well.

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,
And feel them incessantly shine
My boundless, ineffable joy.
3 No sorrow, nor sickness, nor pain,
Nor sin, nor temptation, nor fear,
Shall ever molest me again;

Perfection of glory reigns there.
4 This soul and this body shall shine
In robes of salvation and praise,
And banquet on pleasures divine,
Where Christ his full beauty displays.

HYMN 226. L. M. [#]

Cloud and Pillar of Fire.

1 LONG as the darkening cloud abode,
So long did ancient Israel rest;
Nor moved they, till the guiding Lord
In brighter garments stood confest.

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;
His death has rent the veil away,
Our great Forerunner entered heaven,
And oped the gate of endless day.

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. [#]

Christ Precious.

1 JESUS, I love thy charming name;
'Tis music to my ear:

My tongue would sing thy praise so loud
That earth and heaven might hear.

2 All my capacious powers can wish
In thee doth richly meet;
Nor to my eyes is light so dear,
Nor friendship half so sweet.

3 Thy grace shall dwell upon my heart,
And shed its fragrance there,-
The noblest balm of all its wounds,
The cordial of its care.

4 I'll speak the honours of thy name
With my expiring breath,

And, dying, clasp thee in my arms,—
The antidote of death.

HYMN 228. C. M. [#]

Christ and Aaron.

1 IN Christ, the Lord, our eyes behold
A thousand glories more
Than all the gems and polished gold
The sons of Aaron wore.

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,
The Father's love displayed,
And, in the presence of our God,
Himself an offering made.

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
Our hearts would now proclaim,
And, through the remnant of our days,
Obey, and laud his name.

HYMN 229. S. M. [#]

Grace and Love of Christ.

10 THE transcendent loye
A sinless Saviour shows!
For enemies his bowels move,
His heart with pity glows.

2 Jesus invited near

The vilest of our race:
He bids the greatest sinner hear
The gospel of his grace.

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. [#]

The Fountain.

1 Hail, everlasting Spring!
Celestial Fountain, hail!
Thy streams salvation bring,
The waters never fail ;

Still they endure,
And still they flow,
For all our wo
A sovereign cure.

2 Blest be his wounded side,
And blest his bleeding heart,
Who once in anguish died
Such favours to impart.
His precious word
Shall make us clean
From every sin,

And fit for God.
