church. Hag. ii. 7. STEELE. D To proclaim thy wondrous love! MOME, thou desire of all thy saints, Pour thy grace upon this people,

U Our humble strains attend, That thy truth they may approve;

While, with our praises and complaints, Bless, o bless them,

Low at thy feet we bend. From thy shining courts above.

2 When we thy wondrous glories hear, 2 Now thy gracious word invites them

And all thy sufferings trace, To partake the gospel feast;

What sweetly awful scenes appear! Let thy Spirit sweetly draw them;

What rich unbounded grace! Every soul be Jesus' guest !

3 How should our songs, like those above, o receive us,

With warm devotion rise ; Let us find thy promised rest.

How should our souls, on wings of love,

Mount upward to the skies. PART 1. L. M. Job, 474. 4 But ah ! the song how cold it flows! w Casting the gospel net. Luke v, 5.1

How languid our desire !

How faint the sacred passion glows, I NOW, while the gospel net is cast, Till thou the heart inspire! W Do thou, O Lord, the effort own;

1 5 Come, Lord, thy love alone can raise, From numerous disappointments past,

In us the heavenly flame; Teach us to hope in thee alone.

Then shall our lips resound thy praise, 2 May this be a much-favour'd hour

Our hearts adore thy name. To souls in Satan's bondage led!

6 Dear Saviour, let thy glory shine, O clothe thy word with sovereign power

And fill thy dwellings here, To break the rocks, and raise the dead !

Till life, and love, and joy divine, 3 To mourners speak a cheering word,

A heaven on earth appear. On seeking souls vouchsafe to shine;

17 Then shall our hearts enraptured say, Let poor backsliders be restored,

Come, great Redeemer, come, And all thy saints in praises join.

And bring the bright, the glorious day, 40 hear our prayer, and give us hope, That calls thy children home.

That, when thy voice shall call us home,
Thou still wilt raise a people up

Let floods of penitential grief IA CERTAIN man, when Ahab's sin Burst forth from every eye. 11 Was ripe for punishment,

2 The Son of God in tears, At a mere venture drew his bow.

Angels with wonder see! But God the arrow sent.

Be thou astonish'd, O my soul, Thus in simplicity we bend

He shed those tears for thee. The Scripture's wondrous bow,

3 He wept that we might weep; The arrow's random in our hands,

Each sin demands a tear; But destined where to go.

In heaven alone no sin is found,
Then, Lord, the random arrow guide

And there 's no weeping there.

But to the wounded, bleeding mind

Blind Bartimeus. Luke xviii. 35-38.
SINFUL, and blind, and poor,

And lost without thy grace,
Thy mercy I implore,

And wait to see thy face;
Begging I sit by the way-side,
And long to know the Crucified.

Jesus! attend my cry,
Thou Son of David, hear;
If now thou passest by,
Stand still and call me near:
The darkness from my heart remove,
And show me now thy pardoning love.

2 Thy richest grace vouchsafe to give
As each is able to receive;
The blessed grief to all impart,
Or joy, or purity of heart.
3 Our helpless unbelief remove,

And melt us by thy pardoning love;
Work in us faith, or faith's increase-

The dawning or the perfect peace.
4 Give each whate'er for each is best,

But grant us all the promised rest;
Thy blessing in the means convey,
Nor empty send one soul away.
