3 O may thy Spirit, Lord,
Soon as the foe comes in,
And stem the tide of sin. 4 For each assault prepar'd,
And ready may I be;
And looking up to thee. 5 May I from ev'ry sin,
As from a serpent, fly;
And rather choose to die..
Risen with Christ. 7-6.
If ye then be risen with CHRIST, seek those things which
are above, where CHRIST sitteth on the right hand of
Thy better portion trace;
Twards heav'n, thy native place!
Time shall soon this earth remove;
To seats prepar'd above! 2 Rivers to the ocean run,
Nor stay in all their course:
Both speed them to their source:
Thus a soul, when born of God,
Pants to view his glorious face,
To rest in his embrace. 3 Cease, ye pilgrims! cease to mourn;
Press onward to the prize :
Triumphant in the skies :
And earth' exchang'd for heav'n.
297. Risen with Christ. C.M. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the
earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with
Ye heirs of glory, hear;
Might charm the dullest ear.
Your souls to sin must die; With CHRIST our Lord
With Christ ascend on high. 3 There at his father's hand he sits
Enthron'd divinely fair; Yet owns himself
brother still, And your forerunner there.
4 Rise from these earthly trifles, rise,
On wings of faith and love;
And be your hearts above. 5. But earth and sin will drag us down,
When we attempt to fly ;
To raise us up on high.
298. A Soldier of Christ. S.M. For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.-HEB. ii. 10.
ARISE, ye saints, arise ;
The Lord our leader is :
For victory is his. 2
Behold! he leads the way:
We'll follow where he goes :
Since he subdues our foes. 3 [Lead on, Almighty Lord :
Lead on to victory:
With joy we'll follow thee.
4 We'll follow thee, our guide,
Our Saviour, and our King :
From heav'n's eternal spring:] 5 We hope to see the day
When all our toils shall cease:
And dwell in endless peace. 6 This hope supports us here;
It makes our burden light: 'Twill serve our drooping hearts to
Till faith shall end in sight; scheer, 7 Till, of the prize possess'd,
We hear of war no more ;
On yonder peaceful shore.
299 The Temple of God. 6—7—7.
Ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said,
I will dwell in them, and walk in them: and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.--2 COR. vi. 16.
SAVIOUR! and can it be,
That thou should'st dwell with me!
Throne of everlasting bliss,
2 I am not worthy, LORD,
So vile, and self-abhorr'd, Thee, my God, to entertain
In this poor polluted heart; Lo! I am a sinful man,
All my nature cries, “Depart!" 3 Yet come, thou heav'nly guest,
And purify my breast !
While before thy cross I bow,
Cleanse the house by entring now!
300. Saved by Grace. &-7-7.
I said unto thee, when thou wast in thy blood, live.
EZEK. xvi. 6.
WHEN we lay in sin polluted,
Wretched and undone we were:
Only to produce despair.
Such it had been but for grace.
Needing what no hand could give,
Passed by and bid us live.
