---2 [The manna came from lower skies,
But Jesus from above;
And rivers flow with love...
Who ate the heavenly bread;
Can raise us from the dead.]
To nourish dying men;
Lest we should faint again. -5 Our souls shall draw their heavenly breath,
While Jesus finds supplies; Nor shall our graces sink to death, O For Jesus never dies. e 6 Daily our mortal flesh decays, 0 But Christ our life shall come; o His unresisted power shall raise Our bodies from the tomb.
HYMN 6. L. M. Bath. [*] The Memorial of our absent Lord. John xvi, 16. Luke xxii, 19. John siv, 3. 1 TESUS is gone above the skies,
J Where our weak senses reach him not; e And carnal objects court our eyes,
To thrust our Saviour from our thought. 2 He knows what wand'ring hearts we have,
Apt to forget his lovely face ; -And, to refresh our minds, he gave
These kind memorials of his grace.
With his own flesh and dying blood;
And taste the wine, and bless our God. -4 Let sinful sweets be all forgot,
And earth grow less in our esteem; o Christ and his love fill ev'ry thought,
And faith and hope be fix'd on him. -5 Whilst he is absent from our sight, o 'Tis to prepare our souls a place,
That we may dwell in heavenly light, g And live for ever near his face. --6' (Our eyes look upwards to the hills, Whence our returning Lord shall come :
And tasteful sweless in ev'ry thohim.
Love file fixed our sight
We wait thy chariot's awful wheels,
Crucifixion to the World by the Cross of Christ. Gal. vi, 14. 1[W HEN I survey the wondrous cross,
W On which the Prince of glory dy'd, My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride. e 2 Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast,
Save in the death of Christ, my God: -All the vain things that charm me most,
I sacrifice them to thy blood.
Sorrow and love flow mingled down!.
Or thorns compose so rich a crown? e 4 (His dying crimson, like a robe,
Spreads o'er his body on the tree; -Then am I dead to all the globe,
And all the globe is dead to me.)
That were a present far too small;
The Tree of Life.
U To our exalted Lord,
And we around his board.
Weary and faint ye stood, -What dear refreshment here ye found,
From this immortal food. o 3 The tree of life, that, near the throne,
In heaven's high garden grows, Laden with grace, bends gently down
Its ever-smiling boughs. -4 (Hov’ring among the leaves, there stands
The sweet celestial Dove;
The banner of his love.) 5 ('Tis a young heaven of strange delight:
While in his shade we sit;
Thiso raise at MIN 'water, angues be high,
His fruit is pleasing to the sight,
And to the taste as sweet. 0 6 New life it spreads through dying hearts,
And cheers the drooping mind;
Without a sting behind.)
And guard all Eden's trees:
That bears such fruits as these. 8 Infinite grace our souls adore,
Whose wondrous hand has made This living branch of sovereign power - To raise and heal the dead.]
HYMN 9. S. M. Watchman. [*]
The Spirit, the Water, and the Blood. 1 John v, 6.
I To praise our God on high,
To fetch us strangers nigh.
To sing the Saviour's name;
How cheerfully he came!
To bring us near to God; -Great was our debt, and he appears,
To make the payment good. e 4 (My Saviour's pierced side,
Pour'd out a double flood; -By water we are purify'd,
And pardon'd by the blood. 5 Infinite was our guilt, . But he our Priest atones; g On the cold ground his life was spilt,
And offer'd up with groans.) e 6 Look up, my soul, to him
Whose death was thy desert; And humbly view the living stream
Flow from his breaking heart. 7 There, on the cursed tree,
In dying pangs he lies !Fulfils his Father's great decree,
And all our wants supplies. --8 Thus the Redeemer came,
By water and by blood
And Whose, my with he was
And when the Spirit speaks the same,
We feel his witness good. 9 While the eternal Three
Bear their record above;
And seal'd my Saviour's love.
Nor let thy grace depart;
And witness to my heart.)]
HYMN 10. L. M. Geeen's. (*). Christ Crucified, the Wisdom and Power of God. STATURE with open volume stands, I To spread her Maker's praise abroad; And ev'ry labour of his hands d Shews something worthy of a God :o 2 But in the grace that rescu'd man,
His brightest form of glory shines ; p Here on the cross, 'tis fairest drawn,
In precious blood, and crimson lines. 03 (Here his whole Name appears complete;
Nor wit can guess, nor reason prove,
Which of the letters best is writ, o The power, the wisdom, or the love.) e 4 Here I behold his inmost heart, Where grace and vengeance strangely join, Piercing his Son with sharpest smart,
To make the purchas'd pleasures mine. o 5 Oh! the sweet wonders of that cross,
Where God, the Saviour, lov'd and dy'd!
From his dear wounds and bleeding side. 0 6 I would for ever speak his name,
In sounds to mortal ears unknown;
With angels join to praise the Lamb, g And worship at his Father's throne. HYMN 11. C. M. St. Ann?s. [*]
Pardon brought to our Senses.
I How heavenly is the place,
Of his redeeming grace!
And sweetest glories shine ;
There Jesus says that I am his,
And my Beloved's mine.
And shews his wounded side,)
That open'd when I dy'd! 4 He smiles, and cheers my mournful heart,
And tells of all his pain :
And then he smiles again.
For grace so vast as this!
And seals it with a kiss.
Be sounded all abroad;
And worthy of a God.
Be everlasting praise,
The Gospel Feast. Luke xiv, 16, &c. 1[TTOW rich are thy provisions, Lord!
11 Thy table, furnish'd from above! The fruits of life oʻerspread the board, The cup o'erflows with heavenly love. 2 Thine ancient family, the Jews, Were first invited to the feast : We humbly take what they refuse, And Gentiles thy salvation tasté. 3 We are the poor, the blind, the lame; And help was far, and death was nigh! But at the gospel call, we came, And ev'ry want receiv'd supply: 4 From the high way that leads to hell, From paths of darkness and despair, Lord, we are come with thee to dwell, Glad to enjoy thy presence here.] 5 What shall we pay th' eternal Son, Who left the heaven of his abode
