2 No man can truly say

That Jesus is the Lord, Unless thou take the veil away,

And breathe the living word: Then, only then we feel

Our int’rest in his blood; And cry, with joy unspeakable,

Thou art my Lord, my God!

3 O that the world might know

The all-atoning Lamb!
Spirit of faith, descend and show

The virtue of his Name :
The grace which all may find,

The saving power impart; And testify to all mankind,

And speak in every heart.

478 26th P. M. 75 & 6s.
The comforts, gifts, and graces of the Spirit.
COD of all consolation,
U The Holy Ghost thou art;
Thy secret inspiration

Hath told it to my heart :
The blessing I inherit,

Through Jesus' prayer bestow’d, The Comforter, the Spirit,

The true eternal God.

2 With God the Son and Saviour,

With God the Father one, The tokens of his favour

Are now to man made known; An ante-past of heaven

Thou dost in me reveal, Attest my sins forgiven,

And my salvation seal.

3 The' indubitable witness

Of thy own Deity,
Thou giv'st my soul its fitness

Thy glorious face to see:
Thy comforts, gifts, and graces,

My largest thoughts transcend,
And challenge endless praises,

When faith in sight shall end.

1st P. M. 6 lines 8s. The signature of divine love. W HEN shall I hear the inward voice,

Which only faithful souls can hear ? Pardon, and peace, and heavenly joys,

Attend the promised Comforter : O come, and righteousness divine, And Christ, and all with Christ, are mine. 2 O that the Comforter would come,

Nor visit as a transient guest;
But fix in me his constant home,

And keep possession of my breast;
And make my soul his loved abode,
The temple of indwelling God.
3 Come, Holy Ghost, my heart inspire;

Attest that I am born again;
Come, and baptize me now with fire,

Nor let thy former gifts be vain :
I cannot rest in sins forgiven;
Where is the earnest of my heaven ?
4 Where the indubitable seal,

That ascertains the kingdom mine?
The powerful stamp I long to feel,— :

The signature of love divine ;
O shed it in my heart abroad,
Fulness of love, of heaven, of God!

SANCTIFICATION. 480

C. M. The hope of our high calling. W HAT is our calling's glorious hope,

But inward holiness ? For this to Jesus I look up;

I calmly wait for this.
2 I wait till he shall touch me clean,-

Shall life and power impart;
Give me the faith that casts out sin,

And purifies the heart.
3 This is the dear redeeming grace,

For every sinner free;
Surely it shall on me take place,

The chief of sinners,—me. 4 From all iniquity, from all,

He shall my soul redeem; In Jesus I believe, and shall

Believe myself to him. 5 When Jesus makes my heart his home,

My sin shall all depart;-
And, lo! he saith, I quickly come,

To fill and rule thy heart.
6 Be it according to thy word;

Redeem me from all sin; My heart would now receive thee, Lord;

Come in, my Lord, come in ! 481

L. M. The will of God. ITE wills that I should holy be: Il That holiness I long to feel ; That full divine conformity

To all my Saviour's righteous will.

Haur donne I sta

2 See, Lord, the travail of thy soul

Accomplish'd in the change of mine; And plunge me, every whit made whole, · In all the depths of love divine. 3 On thee, O God, my soul is stay'd,

And waits to prove thine utmost will; The promise by thy mercy made,

Thou canst, thou wilt, in me fulfil. 4 No more I stagger at thy power, . Or doubt thy truth, which cannot move: Hasten the long-expected hour,

And bless me with thy perfect love. 482

S. M.
Thy will be done.
THIS is thy will, I know,

| That I should holy be ;
Should let my sins this moment go,

This moment turn to thee.
2 O might I now embrace

Thine all-sufficient power,
And never more to sin give place,
And never grieve thee more.

C. M. The good pleasure of his will. T KNOW that my Redeemer lives, 1 And ever prays for me: A token of his love he gives,A pledge of liberty. 2 I find him lifting up my head;

He brings salvation near;
His presence makes me free indeed,

And he will soon appear.
3 He wills that I should holy be!

What can withstand his will ? The counsel of his grace in me

He surely shall fulfil.

4 Jesus, I hang upon thy word ;

I steadfastly believe Thou wilt return, and claim me, Lord,

And to thyself receive. 5 When God is mine, and I am his,

Of paradise possess’d, I taste unutterable bliss,

And everlasting rest. 484

C. M. The believer's rest. T ORD, I believe a rest remains I To all thy people known; A rest where pure enjoyment reigns,

And thou art loved alone :
2 A rest where all our soul's desire

Is fix'd on things above;
Where fear, and sin, and grief expire,

Cast out by perfect love. 3 0 that I now the rest might know,

Believe, and enter in :
Now, Saviour, now the power bestow,

And let me cease from sin. 4 Remove this hardness from my heart;

This unbelief remove:
To me the rest of faith impart,-

The Sabbath of thy love.

485

1st P. M. 6 lines 8s. He saves his people from their sins. SAVIOUR from sin, I wait to prove D That Jesus is thy healing name; To lose, when perfected in love,

Whate'er I have, or can, or am: I stay me on thy faithful word,The servant shall be as his Lord.
