Take my body, spirit, soul;
Only thou possess the whole! 2 Thou
my one thing needful be;
Let me give thee all my heart. 3 Fairer than the sons of men,
Do not let me turn again;
Stoop to creature happiness!-
Qoly thee I'd wish to know;
Thou art all in all to me. 5 All my treasure is above,
All my riches is thy love.
34. All in all. 113th. In the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in
the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me upon a rock.-PSALM xxvii. 5. WHY should I fear the darkest hour, Or tremble at the tempest's pow'r?
Jesus vouchsafes to be my tow'r. 2 Though hot the fight, why quit the field,
Why must I either flee or yield,
3 When creature-comforts fade and die,
Worldlings may weep, but why should I?
Jesus still lives, and still is nigh. 4 Though all the locks and berds were
dead, My soul a fainine need not dread,
For Jesus is my living bread, 5 I know not what may soon betide,
Or how my wants shall be supplied ;
But Jesus knows, and will provide. 6 Though sin would fill me with distress,
The throne of grace 1 dare address,
For Jesus is my righteousness. 7 Though faint my pray’rs, and cold my
love, My steadfast hope shall not remove,
While Jesus intercedes above. 8 Against me earth and hell combine ;
But on my side is pow'r divine ;
35. All in all. P. M.
Looking unto Jesus.-HEBREWS xii. 2.
LAMB of GOD, we fall before thee,
Humbly trusting in thy cross :
All things else we count but loss.
2 Thee we own a perfect Saviour,
Only source of all that's good :
Comes to us through Jesu's blood. [3 Jesus gives us true repentance,
By his Spirit sent from heaven;
“'Son, thy sins are all forgiven." 4 Faith he gives us, to believe it ;
Grateful hearts, his love to prize ; Want we wisdom ? He must give it,
Hearing ears, and seeing eyes. 5 Jesus gives us pure affections ;
Wills to do what he requires ;
And what he commands, inspires.] 6 All our prayers and all our praises
Humbly offer'd in his name-
He that answers, is the same. 7 When we live on Jesu's merit,
Then we worship God aright;
Then we savingly unite.
Great or good whate'er we call,
Jesus Chrisr is" all in all."
36. Desire of Nations. C.M. The Desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the Lord of Hosts.-Hag. ii. 7. COME, thon Desire of Nations, come,
And aid our feeble tongues;
In our unworthy songs.
Thy mercy, pow'r, and love; And drawn by grace from sense and sin
To thee our spirits move.
In thee our wishes meet;
Afford a name so sweet.
And after wealth aspire; Our choice is made, our hearts are fix'd,
For Christ is our desire. 5 Pity the nations, gracious Lord,
Where thou art yet unknown; Be their desire as well as ours,
And make the world thine own,
37. Foundation. C. M.
Behold, I lay in Sion a chief comer-stone, elect, precious :
and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. 1 PET. ii. 6.
BEHOLD the sure Foundation-stone,
Which Gop in Zion lays,
And his eternal praise.
And saints adore the name;
Nor shall they suffer shame. 33 Though foolish builders may despise
This stone with blind disdain;
And foes shall rage in vain. 4 What tho' the gates of hell withstood,
Yet must this building rise;
And wond'rous in our eyes.
38. Foundation. P.M.
Other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which
is JESUS CHRIST.-I COR. üi. 11.
HAD I ten thousand gifts beside,
And build on him alone;
