Christ's invitation to sinners. Matt. xi, 28–30. 1' COME hither, all ye weary souls,
v Ye heavy laden sinners, come; I'll give you rest from all your toils, And raise you to my heavenly home. 2 "They shall find rest, who learn of me; "I'm of a meek and lowly mind : But passion rages like the sea, And pride is restless as the wind. 3 'Bless'd is the man, whose shoulders take My yoke, and bear it with delight; My yoke is easy to his neck,
My grace shall make the burden light.' 04 Jesus, we come at thy command;
With faith, and hope, and humble zeal,

HYMN 130. L. M. Sicilian. sb *)
Love and Hatred. Phil. ii, 2; Eph. iv, 30, &c. ei NOW, by the bowels of my God,
I His sharp distress, his sore complaints, By his last groans, his dying blood, I charge my soul to love the saints. 2 Clamour and wrath and war begone; Envy and spite for ever cease ; Let bitter words no more be known,
Amongst the saints, the sons of peace. e 3 The Spirit, like a peaceful dove,
Flies from the realms of noise and strife;
Through all our lives let mercy run: -So God forgives our num’rous faults, For the dear sake of Christ, his Son.
HYMN 131. L. M. Islington. [b *]
The Pharisee und Publican. Luke xviii, 10, &c.
D The Publican and Pharisee!
o One doth his righteousness proclaim,
And cries for grace with lifted hands; o That boldly rises near the throne,
And talks of duties he has done. -3 The Lord their diff'rent language knows,
And diff'rent answers he bestows: o The humble soul with grace he crowns, e Whilst on the proud his anger frowns. -4 Dear Father, let me never be
Join'd with the boasting Pharisee ; e I have no merits of my own,
But plead the suff'rings of thy Son.
Holiness and Grace. Titus ii, 10, 13.
D The holy Gospel, we profess;
And grace subdues the power of sin.
Passion and envy, lust and pride; o Whilst justice, temp?rance, truth and love,
Our inward piety approve. -4 Religion bears our spirits up,
While we expect that blessed hope,o The bright appearance of the Lord ; -And faith stands leaning on his word.
HYMN 133. C. M. York. [*]
Love and Charity. 1 Cor. xiii, 247, 13. 1 T ET Pharisees of high esteem
I Their faith and zeal declare ; All their religion is a dream,
If love be wanting there.
Nor is provok'd in haste;
nd long forgets the past.
- 3 (Malice and rage, those fires of hell,
She quenches with her tongue; Hopes, and believes, and thinks no ill,
Though she endures the wrong.)
The scandals of the time;
Nor envies those who climb.)
To seek her neighbour's good :- . o So God's own Son came down to die,
And bought our lives with blood.
In all the realms above;
But saints for ever love.
Religion vain without Love. 1 Cor. xiii, 1, 2, 3. 1 LTAD I the tongues of Greeks and Jews,
II And nobler speech than angels use; If love be absent, I am found, Like tinkling brass, an empty sound. 2 Were I inspir'd to preach, and tell All that is done in heaven and hell; Or could my faith the world remove, Still I am nothing without love. 3 Should I distribute all my store, To feed the bowels of the poor ; Or give my body to the flame, To gain a martyr's glorious name ;4 If love to God, and love to men, Be absent-all my hopes are vain : Nor tongues, nor gifts, nor fiery zeal, The works of love can e'er fulfil. HYMN 135. L. M. Sicilian. Green's. [*]
Love of Christ in the Heart. Eph. iii, 16, &c. 1 MOME, dearest Lord, descend, and dwell,
U By faith and love, in ev'ry breast; Then shall we know, and taste, and feel, The joys that cannot be express'd.
2 Come, fill our hearts with inward strength;
Of thine unmeasurable grace.
By all the church-through Christ his Son.
UT He sees our inmost mind :
And leave our souls behind.
With honour can appear:
Through the disguise they wear.
Their bending knees the ground; But God abhors the sacrifice,
Where not the heart is found. e 4 Lord, search my thoughts, and try my ways,
And make my soul sincere ; o Then shall I stand before thy face,
And find acceptance there. HYMN 137. L. M. Leeds. Castle-Street. [*]
Salvation by Grace in Christ. 2 Tim. i, 9, 10.
I Be everlasting honours given;
He calls our wand'ring feet to Heaven.
He works salvation in our hearts,
And forms a people for his praise. -3 'Twas his own purpose that begun
€ 4 Lord make mynd bef
He gave us grace in Christ his Son,
