John xvi, 13. (c. M.)
Our contrite hearts inspire :
And feed the pure desire. 2 'Tis thine to soothe the sorrowing mind,
With guilt and fear opprest: 'Tis thine to bid the dying live,
And give the weary rest.
Whate'er that sin may be ;
May worship only thee.
That we are sons of God:
Through Christ's atoning blood.
Romans viii, 14. (L. M.) 1 COME, gracious Spirit! heavenly dove,
With light and comfort from above; Be thou our guardian, thou our guide,
O’er every thought and step preside. 2 Conduct us safe, conduct us far
From every sin and hurtful snare :
3 The light of truth to us display,
And make us know and choose the way;
That we from God may ne'er depart. 4 Lead us to holiness, the road
That we must take to dwell with God;
Nor let us from his pastures stray. 5 Lead us to God, our final rest,
In his enjoyment to be blest:
5 4 Ephesians iii, 17. (P. m.)
Joy of heav'n to earth come down,
All thy faithful mercies crown:
Pure, unbounded love thou art;
Enter ev'ry trembling heart. 2 Come, almighty to deliver,
Let us all thy grace receive;
Never more, thy temples leave ;
Serve thee as thy hosts above :
Glory in thy perfect love.
3 Finish, then, thy new creation,
Pure and spotless let us be ;
Perfectly restored in thee:
Till in heav'n we take our place ;
Lost in wonder, love, and praise.
Acts i, 9–11. (P. M.)
Your God and King adore ;
And triumph evermore :
The God of truth and love;
He took his seat above:
He rules o'er earth and heav'n ;
Are to our Jesus giv’n :
4 Rejoice, in glorious hope,
Jesus the judge shall come,
To their eternal home!
1 COME, blessed Spirit, source of light,
2 To mine illumin’d eyes display
The glorious truth thy word reveals,
3 Thine inward teachings make me know,
The myst'ries of redeeming love,
And excellence of things above. 4 While through this dubious maze I stray,
Spread, like the sun, thy beams abroad,
Matthew vi, 24—34. (D. C. m.) 1 FATHER, 'tis thine each day to yield
Our wants a fresh supply:
And hear'st the ravens' cry:
Thy promise, Lord, we plead;
Who knowest all our need.
Nor cares our bosom fill;
That we may do thy will :
Our faith and hope increase ;
Contentment, joy, and peace.
