Send down a coal of heavenly. fire,

To warm each waiting heart.
2 Shew us some token of thy love,

Our fainting hope to raise;
And pour thy blessing from above,

That we may render praise.
3 Within these walls let holy praise,

And love and concord dwell; e Here give the troubled conscience peace,

The wounded spirit heal. 4 The feeling heart, the melting eye,

The humble mind bestow; e And shine upon us from on high,

To make our graces grow. --5 May we in faith receive thy word,

In faith present our prayers; e And in the presence of our Lord,

Unbosom all our cares. 0 6 And may the gospel's joyful sound,

Enforc'd by mighty grace, Awaken many sinners round,

To come, and fill the place. Newton.

HYMN 126. 7. Fairfax. [b]

A Blessing humbly requested. 1 T ORD, we come before thee now;

I At thy feet we humbly bow; e Oh do not our suit disdain!

Shall we seek thee, Lord, in vain ? 2 Lord, on thee our souls depend; In compassion, now descend; -Fill our hearts with thy rich grace ; o Tune our lips to sing thy praise. -3 In thine own appointed way, à Now we seek thee, here we stay;

Lord we know not how to go,

Till a blessing thou bestow. :
-4 Send some message from thy word,

That may joy and peace afford;
Let thy Spirit now impart
Full salvation to each heart.

€ 5 Comfort those who weep and mourn ; Let the time of joy return;

Those who are cast down, lift up, Make them strong in faith and hope. --6 Grant that all may seek, and find

Thee a God supremely kind : Heal the sick, the captive free; Let'us all rejoice in thee.

Love Divinc. 1 T OVE divine, all love excelling!

I Joy of heaven, to earth come down! Fix in us thy humble dwelling:

All thy faithful mercies crown. e Jesus, thou art all compassion!

Pure, unbounded love, thou art! o Visit us with thy salvation,

Enter ev'ry trembling heart. a 2 Breathe, O breathe, thy loving Spirit

Into ev'ry troubled breast ! e Let us all in thee inherit,

Let us find thy promis'd rest. -Take away the power of sinning,

o End of faith, as its beginning,

Set our hearts at liberty. --3 Come, Almighty to deliver,

Let us all thy life receive! Suddenly return-and nevere Never more thy temples leave! -Then we should be always blessing,

Serve thee as thy hosts above; o Pray, and praise thee without ceasing,

Glory in thy precious love. -4 Finish, then, thy new creation;

Pure, unspotted may we be; Let us see thy great salvation,

Perfectly restor’d by thee: g Chang'd from glory unto glory,

Till in heaven we take our place; e Till we cast our crowns before thee, a Lost in wonder, love, and praise! Madan's Col. HYMN 128. C. M. Reading. [b *]

Seed in different Grounds. Matt. xiii, 3. 1 VE sons of earth, prepare the plough

1 Break up your fallow ground: The sower is gone forth to sow,

And scatter blessings round. 2 The seed that finds a stony soil,

Shoots forth a hasty blade; But ill repays the sower's toil,

Soon wither'd, scorch'd, and dead. 3 The thorny ground is sure to balk

All hopes of harvest there; We find a tall and sickly stalk,

But not the fruitful ear.
4 The beaten path and highway side

Receive the trust in vain;
The watchful birds the prey divide,

And pick up all the grain.
o 5 But where the Lord of grace and power

Has bless'd the happy field;
How plenteous is the golden store,

The deep wrought furrows yield! e 6 Father of mercies, we have need

Of thy preparing grace, -Let the same hand that gives the seed, Provide a fruitful place.

Cowper. HYMN 129. L. M. Sicilian. [*]

Close of Worship. 1 D ISMISS us with thy blessing, Lord;

D Help us to feed upon thy word; All that has been amiss, forgive, And let thy truth within us live. 2 Though we are guilty, thou art good; Wash all our works in Jesus' blood; Give every fetter'd soul release, And bid us all depart in peace. Hart. HYMN 130. L. M. Portugal. [*]

Close of Worship. 1 THE peace which God alone reveals,

1 And by his word of grace imparts, Which only the believer feels, Direct, and keep, and cheer our hearts.

2 And may the holy Three in One,
The Father, Word, and Comforter,
Pour an abundant blessing down
On ev'ry soul assembled here.

1 NOW may the God of peace and love,

I Who from th' imprison'd grave
Restor'd the Shepherd of the sheep,

Omnipotent to save;
2 Through the rich merits of that blood,

Which he on Calv'ry spilt,
To make th' eternal cov’nant sure,

On which our hopes are built ;-
3 Perfect our souls in ev'ry grace,

To accomplish all his will;
And all that's pleasing in his sight,

Inspire us to fulfil !
4 For the great Mediator's sake

We every blessing pray;
g With glory let his name be crown'd,

Through heav'ns eternal day. Gibbons.

HYMN 132. H. M. Allerton. [*b?

01 RLOW ye the trumpet, blow;

D The gladly solemn sound
Let all the nations know,

To earth's remotest bound : o The year of jubilee is come,

Return, ye ransom'd sinners, home! - 2 Exalt the Lamb of God, e The sin-atoning Lamb;

Redemption by his blood

Through all the world proclaim : 0 The year, &c.

3 Ye who have sold for nought
The heritage above,
Come take it back unbought,
The gift of Jesus' love :

The year, &c.

- 4 Ye slaves of sin and hell,

Your liberty receive ;
And safe in Jesus dwell,
And blest in Jesus live:

The year, &c.
5 The gospel trumpet hear,
The news of pard’ning grace ;
Ye happy souls, draw near,
Behold your Saviour's face :

The year, &c.
- 6 Jesus, our great high priest,

Has full atonement made ;
Ye weary spirits, rest;

Ye mourning souls, be glad : s The year of Jubilee is come,

Return, ye ransom'd sinners, home! Toplady.

HYMN 133. C. M. Zion. Hymn 2d. [* b]

The Lord's Prayer. 1 RATHER of all, we bow to thee,

T Who dwell'st in heaven adord; But present still through all thy works,

The universal Lord.
2 For ever hallowed be thy name,

By all below the skies;
And may thy kingdom still advance,

Till grace to glory rise.
3 Thy glorjous purpose, Lord, fulfil ;

Let all thy glory see;
And, as in heaven thy will is done,

On earth so let it be.
4 Our wants with every morning grow,

With food these wants supply; And on our souls the Bread bestow

To eat-and never die! 5 Our sins before thee we confess;

O may they be forgiven!
As we to others mercy shew,

We mercy beg of heaven.
6 Still let thy grace our life direct;

From evil guard our way;
And in temptation's fatal path

Permit us not to stray.
