'L With unavailing pain :
Hymn 35. C. M.
And heard it preach'd in vain. 2 Oft did I with th' assembly join,
And near thy altar drew;
The power I never knew. 3 I rested in the outward law,
Nor knew its deep design;
And height of love divine.
Vainly I hop'd and strove;
Unless they spring from love! 3 I see the perfect law requires
Truth in the inward parts;
Our undivided hearts.
Of means an idol made; The spirit in the letter lost,
The substance in the shade. 7 Where am I now, or what my hope?
What can my weakness do? Jesus, to thee my soul looks up:
Tis thou must make it new..
Hymn 36. C. M.
But O! how dark and void
This earth without my God.
Till he his light impart:
The veil is on my heart. 3 0 thou who seest and know'st my grief,
Thyself unseen, unknown;
And break my heart of stone. 4 Regard me with a gracious eye,
The long-sought blessing give: And bid me, at the point to die,
Behold thy face, and live. 5 A darker soul did never yet
Thy promis'd help implore;
And never lose him more!
Shed in my heart abroad : The middle wall of sin remove, And let me into God.
Hymn 37. C. M. VHOU hidden God, for whom I groan,
2 A sinner welt'ring in his blood,
Unpurg'd and uuforgiven;
As far as hell from heaven. 3 An unregen'rate child of man,
To thee for faith I call;
Ånd raise me from my fall.
Thou only canst remove; Thine own eternal power rcvral,
The Deity of love.
That grace may let me go ;
I wait the truth to know.
Thou wilt thy light afford;
The pris'ner of the Lord.
I hate the tyrant's chain ;
Nor let me cry in vain. 8 Show me the blood that bought my peace,
The cov’oant blood apply!
And all my sins shall die.
it thou art truth and love!
10 Speak, Jesus, speak into my heart,
What thou for me hast done; One grain of living faith impart, And God is all my own.
Hymn 38. L. M. TWI
HOU Man of griefs, remember me,
Who never canst thyself forget Thy last mysterious agony,
Thy fainting pangs and bloody sweat. 2 When wrestling in the strength of prayer,
Thy spirit sunk beneath its load; Thy feeble flesh abhorrd to bear
The wrath of an Almighty God. 3 Father, if I may call thee so,
Regard my fearful heart's desire: Remove this load of guilty wo,
Nor let me in my sins expire. 4 I tremble, lest the wrath divine,
Which bruises now my wretched soul, Should bruise this wretched soul of mipe,
Long as eternal ages roll. 3 To thee my last distress I bring !
The heighten'd fear of death I find; The tyrant brandishing his sting,
Appears, and hell is close behind. 6 I deprecate that dcatb alone,
That endless banishment from thee: O save, and give me to thy Son,
Who trembled, wept, and bled for me!
Hymn 39. L. M. 'L bec:
ORD Jesus, when, when shall it be,
And my free soul enjoy thy peace? 2 Here I repent and sin again;
Now I revive, and now am slain;
Which Ob! too often wounds my heart! 3 O Saviour, when, when shall I be
A garden seal'd to all but thee?
But live and grow to thee alone?
And draw me on with thy sweet force
Hymn 40. L. M.
GOD to whom in flesh reveal'd,
The helpless all for succour came; The sick to be reliev'd and heald,
And found salvation in thy name. 2 With publicans and harlots I,
In these thy Spirit's gospel days,
And humbly sue for saving grace.
Feeble, and faint, and blind, and poor'; Weary I come to thee for rest,
And sick of sin implore a cure.
