PENITENCE AND REFORMATION.
HYMN 329. C. M. [b]
Repentance and Hope.
1 0 THOU, the wretched's sure Retreat,
And, with the cheerful smile of peace,
2 Oppressed with grief and shame, dissolved In penitential tears,
Thy goodness calms my rising doubts,
3 From that blest Source, propitious hope
4 My griefs confess its vital power,
HYMN 330. C. M. [b]
1 My Saviour, when my thoughts recall
2 Shall love like thine be thus repaid?
3 From Jesus, who alone can give
4 O, while I breathe to thee, my Lord,
HYMN 331. L. M. [b]
1 HEAR me, O Lord, in my distress; Hear me in truth and righteousness; For, at thy bar of judgment tried, None living can be justified.
2 Lord, I have foes without, within, The world, the flesh, in-dwelling sin, Life's daily ills, temptation's power, And passions raging to devour.
3 Teach me thy will, subdue my own; Thou art my God, and thou alone; By thy good spirit guide me still, Safe from all foes, to Zion's hill.
4 Release my soul from trouble, Lord;
C. M. [b]
1 0 THOU, Whose tender mercy hears Contrition's humble sigh,
Whose hand, indulgent, wipes the tears From sorrow's weeping eye,
2 See, low before thy throne of grace,
3 O shine on this benighted heart!
4 Thy presence only can bestow
HYMN 333. L. M. [b]
1 SHOW mercy, Lord; O Lord, forgive;
2 O wash my soul from every stain, Nor let the guilt I mourn remain ; Give me to hear thy pardoning voice, And bid my bleeding heart rejoice.
3 Give me a will to thine subdued,
4 Then shall thy love inspire my tongue;
And every power shall join to bless
HYMN 334. C. M. [b]
Repentance and Peace.
1 How oft, alas, this wretched heart
2 Yet Sovereign Mercy calls, Return:
3 And canst thou, wilt thou, yet forgive,
4 Almighty Grace, thy healing power,
Which can to life and bliss restore
5 Thy pardoning love, so free, so sweet, Dear Saviour, I adore :
O keep me at thy sacred feet,
And let me rove no more.
HYMN 335. L. M. [b]
Confession and Pardon.
1 WHILE I keep silence, and conceal
2 I spread my sins before the Lord,
Make swift addresses to thy seat;
There shall they find a blest retreat.
4 How safe beneath thy wings I lie,
When days grow dark, and storms appear! And, when I walk, thy watchful eye Shall guide me safe from every snare.
HYMN 336. 7s. M. [b]
1 GOD of mercy, God of love,
Hear our sad, repentant songs; Listen to thy suppliant race,
Thou to whom all grace belongs.
2 Deep regret for follies past,
Talents wasted, time misspent, Hearts debased by worldly cares, Thankless for the blessings lent,
