3 Foolish fears and fond desires, Vain regrets for things as vain, Lips too seldom taught to praise, Oft to murmur and complain,4 These, and every secret fault,
Filled with grief and shame, we own: Humbled, at thy feet we bow,
Seeking pardon from thy throne.
5 God of mercy, God of grace,
Hear our sad, repentant songs;
Thou to whom all praise belongs.
HYMN 337. L. M. [b]
Sorrow for Sin.
1 My spirit longs its rest to find ;
2 Break off the yoke of inbred sin,
3 Fain would I learn of thee, my Lord,
4 I would, but thou must give the power; My heart from every sin release: Lord, bring, O bring, the joyful hour,
And fill me with thy perfect peace.
CHARITY AND BROTHERLY LOVE.
HYMN 338. C. M. [# or b]
1 O CHARITY, thou heavenly grace,
2 The man of charity extends
in their distress;
With tender heart delights to bless,
3 He aids the poor
4 The sick, the prisoner, deaf, and blind,
In him a benefactor find ;
5 "Tis love that makes religion sweet;
HYMN 339. C. M. [# or b]
1 JESUS, my Lord, how rich thy grace!
2 High on a throne of radiant light
3 But thou hast brethren here below,
And wilt confess their humble names
4 In them thou mayest be clothed and fed, And visited and cheered;
And in their accents of distress
5 Thy face, with pity and with love,
Lord, I would rather beg my bread,
HYMN 340. L. M. [# or b]
1 BLEST is the man whose tender care
Whose hand supports the fatherless.
2 His heart contrives for their relief More than his willing hand can do: He in the time of wasting grief
Shall find the Lord has pity too. 3 His soul shall live secure on earth, With secret blessings on his head, When drought, and pestilence, and dearth, Around him multiply their dead.
4 Or, if he languish on his couch,
God will pronounce his sins forgiven, Will save him with a healing touch,
Or take his willing soul to heaven.
HYMN 341. C. P. M. [#]
1 HAIL, love divine! joys ever new,
Our souls delighted share,
2 By thee inspired, the generous breast,
With kindness large and free,
3 O God, with sympathetic care,
Each low, each selfish wish control,
HYMN 342. C. M. [b or #]
1 BLEST is the man whose tender heart
To whom the supplicating eye
2 Whose breast expands with generous warmth, A stranger's wo to feel,
And bleeds in pity o'er the wound
3 He spreads his kind, supporting arms
4 To gentle offices of love
His feet are never slow;
He views, through mercy's melting eye,
5 To him protection shall be shown,
HYMN 343. S. M. [#]
