3 Jesus ! harmonious name!
It charms the bosts above;
And wonder at, bis love :
And is from sin set free;
'Tis life and victory;
0 all-redeeming grace!
To save a fallen race!
On all the world to call,
In him who died for all :
My loving God to praise !
And depth of sov'reigu grace! 9 Thy sov'reigo grace to all extends,
Iminense and unconfined ; From age to age it never ends;
It reaches all mankind.
3 Throughout the world its breadth is known,
Wide as infinity :-
Or it had pass'd by me.
But, far above the skies,
I see thy mercies rise.
What angel tongue can tell! O may I to the utmost prove
The gift unspeakable ! 308
L. M. Rejoicing in the glory of His grace. LORY to God, whose sov'reign grace Call'd us to stand before his face,
And raised us into Abrah'm's song. 2 The people that in darkness lay,
In sin and error's deadly shade, Have seen a glorious gospel-day,
In Jesus' lovely face display'd. 3 Thou only, Lord, the work hast done,
And bared thine arm in all our sight; Hašt made the reprobates thine own,
And claim'd the outcasts as thy right. 4 Thy single arm, almighty Lord,
To us the great salvation brought; Thy Word, thy all-creating Word,
That spake at first the world from naughte 5 For this the saints lift up their voice,
And ceaseless praise to thee is given; for this the hosts above rejoice,
And praise thee in the highest heaven.
Original and actual sin.
Hath power sufficient to atone; 1
Thy blood can make us white as snow
May hear thy voice, and live.
2 While full of anguish and disease,
My weak, distemper'd soul Thy love compassionately sees :
O let it make me whole.
To Jesus' name subnuit:
And place me at thy feet.
A trembling homage pay,
My stiff-neck'd will obey.
And all for wretched man: Fill every want my spirit feels,
And break off every chain. 311
To happiness and God.
The stubborn will eubdue 'Tis thine, eternal Spirit, thine
To for the heart anew : 3 The passions to recall,
And ipward bid them rise; To make the scales of error fall
From renson's darken'd eyes. 4 O change these hearts of ours,
And give them life divine;
Almighty Lord, be thine.
Helpless and guilty.
Be just before his God!
We sink beneath his rod.
With strict inquiring eyes,
A just excuse devise !
Their ancient seats forsake;
Her rooted pillars shake,
Contend with such a God!
But through the Saviour's blood.
Without God in the world.
This earth without my God.
Till be his light impart,
The veil is on my heart.
Thyself unseen, unknown,
And break my heart of stone.
The long-sought blessing give;
Behold thy face and live.
