Thou canst, thou wilt my helper be;
My confidence is all in thee
The faithful God of love.

4 While still to thee for help I call,
Thou wilt not suffer me to fall,
Thou wilt not let me sin;
And thou shalt give me pow'r to pray,
Till all my sins are purg'd away,
And all thy mind brought in.

5 Wherefore in never-ceasing pray'r,
My soul to thy continual care
I faithfully commend:


Assur'd that thou through life wilt save,
And show thyself beyond the grave
My everlasting Friend.

Winter.] HYMN 359. C. M.

W That plants my God in me!

THEN shall I see the welcome hour,

Spirit of health, and life, and pow'r,
And perfect liberty.

2 Love only can the conquest win,
The strength of sin subdue,
Come, O my Saviour, cast out sin,
And form my soul anew!

3 No longer then my heart shall mourn,
While sanctify'd by grace,

I only for his glory burn,
And always see his face.

Broadmead.] HYMN 360. 6 lines 8's.



MOUNTAIN of life and all my joy,
Jesus, thy mercies I embrace;
The breath thou giv'st, for thee employ,
And wait to taste thy perfect grace:

No more forsaken and forlorn,

I bless the day that I was born!

2 Preserv'd through faith, by power divine, A miracle of grace I stand!

I prove the strength of Jesus mine!
Jesus, upheld by thy right-hand,
Though in my flesh I feel the thorn,
I bless the day that I was born.
3 Weary of life, through inbred sin
I was, but now defy its power:
When as a flood the foe comes in,

My soul is more than conqueror :
I tread him down with holy scorn,
And bless the day that I was born.

4 Come, Lord, and make me pure within,
And let me now be fill'd with God!
Live to declare I'm sav'd from sin:
And if I seal the truth with blood,
My soul from out the body torn,
Shall bless the day that I was born!

Monmouth.] HYMN 361. 6 lines 8's.


NOME, Holy Ghost, all-quick'ning fire! Come, and my hallow'd heart inspire; Sprinkled with th' atoning blood; Now to my soul thyself reveal, Thy mighty working let me feel,

And know that I am born of God.

2 Thy witness with my spirit bear,
That God, my God, inhabits there:
Thou, with the Father, and the Son,
Eternal life's co-eval beam,
Be Christ in me, and I in him,
Till perfect we are made in one.

3 When wilt thou my whole heart subdue?
Come, Lord, and form my soul anew,
Emptied of pride, and wrath, and hell:
Less than the least of all thy store
Of mercies, I myself abhor:

All, all my vileness may I feel. 4 Humble, and teachable, and mild, O may I, as a little child,

My lowly Master's steps pursue! Be anger to my soul unknown; Hate, envy, jealousy, be gone;

In love create thou all things new. 5 Let earth no more my heart divide; With Christ may I be crucify'd;

To thee with my whole heart aspire;
Dead to the world and all its toys,
Its idle pomp, and fading joys,
Be thou alone my one desire!

6 Be thou my joy, be thou my dread;
In battle cover thou my head,

Nor earth, nor hell I then shall fear;
I then shall turn my steady face:
Want, pain defy-enjoy disgrace-
Glory in dissolution near.

7 My will be swallow'd up in thee!
Light in thy light still may I see,
Beholding thee with open face;
Call'd the full power of faith to prove,
Let all my hallow'd heart be love,
And all my spotless life be praise.

8 Come, Holy Ghost, all-quick'ning fire, My consecrated heart inspire,

Sprinkled with th' atoning blood:
Still to my soul thyself reveal:
Thy mighty working may I feel,
And know that I am one with God.


Swanwick.] HYMN 362. C. M.


ATHER of Jesus Christ, my Lord,
My Saviour, and my Head,

I trust in thee, whose powerful word
Hath rais'd him from the dead.

2 Thou know'st for my offence he died,
And rose again for me;

4 Fully and freely justified,
That I might live to thee.

3 Eternal life to all mankind
Thou hast in Jesus given:
And all who seek, in him shall find
The happiness of heaven.

4 O God! thy record I believe,
In Abraham's footsteps tread;
And wait, expecting to receive
The Christ, the promis'd Seed.

5 Faith in thy power, thou seest I have,
For thou this faith hast wrought;
Dead souls thou callest from their grave,
And speakest worlds from nought.

6 Things that are not, as though they were,
Thou callest by their name;
Present with thee the future are,
With thee, the great I AM.

7 In hope, against all human hope,
Self-desperate I believe;

Thy quick'ning word shall raise me up,
Thou shalt thy Spirit give.

8 The thing surpasses all my thought;
But faithful is my Lord;

Through unbelief I stagger not,
For God hath spoke the word.

9 Faith, mighty faith, the promise sees, And looks to that alone;

Laughs at impossibilities,

And cries, "It shall be done!" 10 To thee the glory of thy power And faithfulness I give!

I shall in Christ, at that glad hour,
And Christ in me shall live.

11 Obedient faith that waits on thee,
Thou never wilt reprove;

But thou wilt form thy Son in me,
And perfect me in love.

Clarendon.] HYMN 363. C. M.

Din this weak, helpless soul;

EEPEN the wound thy hands have made

Till mercy with its balmy aid,

Descend to make me whole.

2 The sharpness of thy two-edg'd sword
Enable me t' endure;

Till bold to say, My hallowing Lord
Hath wrought a perfect cure.

3 I see th' exceeding broad command,
Which all contains in one;
Enlarge my heart to understand
The mystery unknown.

4 O that with all thy saints I might
By sweet experience prove,
What is the length, and breadth, and height,
And depth of perfect love!

Mystery.] HYMN 364. 8 lines 7's & 6's.

IVE me the enlarg'd desire,

G And open, Lord, my soul,

Thy own fulness to require,
And comprehend the whole :
