3 I see the exceeding broad command,

Which all contains in one: Enlarge my heart to understand

The mystery unknown. . 4 0 that, with all thy saints, I might

By sweet experience prove What is the length, and breadth, and height,

And depth, of perfect love. 518

Perfect freedom.
TF thou impart thyself to me,
I No other good I need :
If thou, the Son, shalt make me free,

I shall be free indeed.
2 I cannot rest till in thy blood

I full redemption have;
But thou, through whom I come to God,

Canst to the utmost save. 3 From sin,—the guilt, the power, the pain,

Thou wilt redeem my soul : Lord, I believe—and not in vain";

My faith shall make me whole. 4 I, too, with thee, shall walk in white;

With all thy saints shall prove The length and depth, and breadth and height,

Of everlasting love. 519

The image of God. TATHER of eternal grace,

Glorify thyself in me; Sweetly beaming in my face

May the world thine image see. 2 Happy only in thy love,

Poor, unfriended, and unknown: Fix my thoughts on things above;

Stay my heart on thee alone.

3 To thy gracious will resign'd

All thy will by me be done ; Give me, Lord, the perfect mind

Of thy well-belovéd Son. 4 Counting gain and glory loss,

May I tread the path he trod; Die with Jesus on the cross,

Rise with him to live with God. 520

Glorious liberty.
COME, and dwell in me,

Spirit of power within ;
And bring the glorious liberty

From sorrow, fear, and sin ! 2 The seed of sin's disease,

Spirit of health, remove,Spirit of finish'd holiness,

Spirit of perfect love. 3 Hasten the joyful day

Which shall my sins consume; When old things shall be done away,

And all things new become. 4 I want the witness, Lord,

That all I do is right,—. According to thy will and word,—

Well pleasing in thy sight. 5 I ask no higher state;

Indulge me but in this,
And soon or later then translate

To my eternal bliss. 521

C. M. The perfect rest from sin. TESUS, my Lord, I cry to thee, J Against the foe within : I want a constant liberty, A perfect rest from sin.

Jesus, in me display;
The life of nature, from this hour,

My pride and passion slay.
3 Then, then, my utmost Saviour, raise

My soul with saints above, To serve thy will, and spread thy praise,

And sing thy perfect love. 522

C. M. The exceeding great reward. THY name to me, thy nature grant !

1 This, only this be given ! Nothing beside my God I want;

Nothing in earth or heaven.
2 Come, O my Saviour, come away;

Into my soul descend;
No longer from thy creature stay,

My Author and my End.
3 The bliss thou hast for me prepared,

No longer be delay'd;
Come, my exceeding great Reward,

For whom I first was made.
4 Come, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,

And seal me thine abode; Let all I am in thee be lost,

Let all be lost in God. 523

Waiting for the promise.
JESUS, full of truth and grace!

O all-atoning Lamb of God !
I wait to see thy glorious face;

I seek redemption in thy blood. 2 Thou art the anchor of my hope;

The faithful promise I receive : Surely thy death shall raise me up,

For thou hast died that I might live.

3 Satan, with all his arts, no more

Me from the Gospel hope can move; I shall receive the gracious power,

And find the pearl of perfect love. 4 My flesh, which cries, It cannot be,

Shall silence keep before the Lord; And earth, and hell, and sin shall flee

At Jesus' everlasting word.


C. M. - Entire purification. TOREVER here my rest shall be, I Close to thy bleeding side; This all my hope, and all my plea, —

For me the Saviour died. 2 My dying Saviour, and my God,

Fountain for guilt and sin, Sprinkle me ever with thy blood,

And cleanse and keep me clean. 3 Wash me, and make me thus thine own;

Wash me, and mine thou art; Wash me, but not my feet alone,

My hands, my head, my heart. | The' atonement of thy blood apply,

Till faith to sight improve; Till hope in full fruition die,

And all my soul be love.

Entire consecration. TATHER, Son, and Holy Ghost,

One in Three, and Three in One, As by the celestial host,

Let thy will on earth be done ; Praise by all to thee be given, Glorious Lord of earth and heaven.

2 Vilest of the sinful race,

Lo! I answer to thy call :
Meanest vessel of thy grace,

Grace divinely free for all;
Lo! I come to do thy will,
All thy counsel to fulfil.
3 If so poor a worm as I

May to thy great glory live,
All my actions sanctify,

All my words and thoughts receive; Claim me for thy service, claim All I have, and all I am. 4 Take my soul and body's powers;

Take my mem'ry, mind, and will;
All my goods, and all my hours ;

All I know, and all I feel;
All I think, or speak, or do;
Take my heart, but make it new.

C. M.
Longing to be dissolved in love.
TESUS hath died that I might live,
J Might live to God alone;
In him eternal life receive,

And be in spirit one. 2 Saviour, I thank thee for the grace,

The gift unspeakable; And wait with arms of faith to' embrace,

And all thy love to feel. 3 My soul breaks out in strong desire

The perfect bliss to prove; My longing heart is all on fire

To be dissolved in love.' 4 Give me thyself; from every boast, .

From every wish set free; Let all I am in thee be lost,

But give thyself to me.
