14 Thy holy nature, Lord, impart,

Come quickly from above :
Write thy new name upon my heart,

Thy new best name of love.

Hymn 56. C. M.

Breathing after Holiness.
THAT the Lord would guide my ways,

To keep his statutes still !
O that my God would give me grace,

To know and do his will.
? Lord, send thy Spirit down to write

Thy law upon my heart!
I Nor let my tongue indulge deceit,
Į Nor act a liar's part.
3 From vanity turn mine eyes;

Let no corrupt design,
No covetous desires arise,
! Within this soul of mine.
| Order my footsteps by thy word,

And make my heart sincere !

Corrupts the race and taints us all. 2 Soon as we draw our infant breath

The seeds of sin grow up for death;
Thy law demands a perfect heart,
But we're defil'd in ev'ry part.
3 Great God! create my heart anew,

And form my spirit pure and true;
Oh, make me wise by times to spy

My danger and my remedy.
4 Jesus, my God, thy blood alone

Hath pow'r sufficient to atone;
Thy blood can make me white as snow,
No other thing can cleanse me so.

Hymn 58. C. M.
Christ precious to a Believer,
ESUS, I love thy charming nante,
'Tis music to my ear; .
