2 The Lord, in the day

Of his anger, did lay
Our sins on the Lamb, and he bore them away ;

He dy'd to atone

For sins not his own
The Father hath punish'd for us his dear Son.
3 For sinners, like me,

He dy'd on the tree ;
His death is accepted, the sinner is free.

My pardon I claim,

A sinner I am,
A sinner believing in Jesus's name,
4 With joy we approve

The plan of his love !
A wonder to all both below and above !

When time is 110 more,

We still shall adore
That ocean of love, without bottom or shore.

Surrender to Infinite Love.

HEN I view my Saviour bleeding
For my


upon O how wond'rous !-how exceeding

Great his love appears to me! 2 Floods of deep distress and anguish

To impede his labors came ; Yet they all could not extinguish

Love's eternal, burning flame. 3 Now redemption is completed,

Full salvation is procur'd: Death and satan are defeated

By the suff'rings he endur'd. 4 Now the gracious Mediator,

Risen to the courts of bliss, Claims for me, a sinful creature, Pardon, righteousness, and peace.

5 Sure such infinite affection

Lays the highest claim to mine :
All my pow'rs, without exception,

Should in fervent praises join, 6 Jesus, fit me for thy service,

Form me for thyself alone ;
I am thy most costly purchase,
Take possession of thy own.]

way, (Alas what numbers do!) Methinks I hear my Saviour say,

4 Wilt thou forsake me too?" 2 Ah, Lord, with such a heart as mine,

Unless thou hold me fast,
I feel I must, I shall declin

And prove like them at last.
(3 Yet thou alone hast pow'r, I know,

To save a wretch like me :
To whom, or whither could I go,

If I should turn from thee? 4 Beyond a doubt I rest assur'd

Thou art the Christ of God ;
Who hast eternal life secur'd,

By promise and by blood.]
5 The help of men and angels join'd

Could never reach my case ;
Nor can I hope relief to find,

But in thy boundless grace.
6 No voice but thine can give me rest,

And bid my fears depart;
No love but thine can make me blest,

And satisfy my heart. 7 What anguish has that question stirr'd, If I will also go ?


Yet, Lord, relying on thy word,

I humbly answer-no!

To whom shall we go ?-John vi. 67, 68,

HOU only Sov'reign of my heart,

My refuge, my almighty friend
And can my soul from thee depart,

On whom alone my hopes depend ?
2 Whither, ah! whither shall I go

A wretched wand'rer from my Lord ?
Can this dark world of sin and woe,

One glimpse of happiness afford ?
3 Eternal life thy words impart,

On these my fainting spirit lives;
Here sweeter comforts cheer


Than all the round of nature gives.
4 Let earth's alluring joys combine ;

While thou art near, in vain they call 3
One smile, one blissful smile of thine,

My dearest Lord, outweighs them all.
5 Thy name my inmost pow'rs adore,

Thou art my life, my joy, my care ;
Depart from thee ;- 'tis death-'tis more!

*Tis endless ruin ! deep despair !
6 Low at thy feet my soul would lie,

Here safety dwells and peace divine ;
Still let me live beneath thine eye,
For life, eternal life, is thine !

Free Salvation....2 Tim. i. 9.
1 ONG ere the sun began his days,

[ocr errors]

Salvation's scheme was fixt, 'twas done
in cov’nant by the Three in One.
The Father spake, the Son reply'd,
The Spirit with them both comply'd :

Grace mov'd the cause for saving man,

And wisdom drew the noble plan. 3 The Father chose his only Son

To die for sins that man had done ;
Immanuel to the choice agreed,

And thus secur'd a num'rous seed. 4 He sends his Spirit from above

To call the objects of his love ;
Not one shall perish or be lost,

His blood has bought them, dear they cost. 5 What high displays of sov'reign grace!

What love to save a ruin'd race !
My soul, adore his lovely name,
By whom thy free salvation came.

Complete Salvation....Psalm xxxv. 3.
ALVATION thro' my dying God

Is finish'd and complete ;
He paid whate'er his people ow'd,

And cancell'd all their debt.
2 Salvation from the depths of hell

From seas of quenchless fire,
To yon sweet fields where angels dwell,

And strike the golden lyre.
[3' Salvation ! O melodious sound

To wretched, dying men !
Salvation that from God proceed,

And leads to God again.')
4 Salvation now shall be my stay ;

“ A sinner sav'd," I'll cry ; Then gladly quit this mortal clay

For better joys on high.
5 Salvation to sweet harps of gold,

My raptur'd soul shall sing,
And strike, while endless ages roll,

The ever-tuneful string.

6 Salvation, let the tidings fly,

Thro' earth's remotest bound; 'Till all the chosen heirs of grace

Shall tread celestial ground.

Wells of Salvation.... Isaiah xii. 3.
ESU'S precious name excels

Jordan's streams, and Salem's wells;
Thirsty sinners, come and draw,

Quench the flames of Sinai's law. 2 Fearful sinners, come and try-

Draw and drink with inward joy;
Christ is fresh, and full, and free ;

Sinners, come, whoe'er you be. 3 See the waters springing up,

To revive your languid hope ;
Fill your vessis, as it rolls,

And refresh your weary souls. 4 Lo! the Spirit now invites !

Lo! the happy Bride unites !
Jesus calls, be not afraid,

Lo! for you the well was made ! 5 Justice made it in the Lamb,

Mercy grants it thro' his name ;
Faith receives a full supply ;

Those who drink it cannot die. (6 Careless sinner, let me tell,

Not a drop is found in hell;
Not a drop to ease your smart,

Not a drop to cool your heart.
7 Haste you to the Lamb of God,

Seek salvation in his blood;
In it there is boundless store,

For ten-thousand thousands more. & Constant tributes let us bring,

For this soul-refreshing spring;
