iumph o'er my fears,
Hymn 188. s. M.
Salvation by grace. Eph. Ü. 5.
I Harmonious to the ear!
And all the earth shall hear.
To save rebellious man,
Which drew the wond'rous plan,
To tread the heay'nly road ;
While pressing on to God.
Thro' everlasting days;
And well deserves the praise.
Hymn 189. c. M. 1. TF God to build the house deny,
1 The builders work in vain ;
An useless watch maintain.
Your painful work renew ;
Your tiresomne toil pursue. 3. Short be your sleep; and coarse your fare ;
In vain, till God has blest ;
But if his smiles attend your care,
You shall have food and rest.
Shall real blessings prove ;
Hymn 190. 1. M.
U " That doth one wilful sin commit; “ Death and damnation on the first,
“ Without relief and infinite." 2. Thus Sinai roars; and round the earth
Thunder and fire and vengeance flings ; But, Jesus, thy dear gasping breath,
And Calvary says gentier things ; 3. “Pardon and grace, and boundless love,
“Streaming along a Saviour's blood; “ And life, and joys, and crowns above,
“ Obtain'd by the redeeming God." 4. Hark, how he prays, (the charming sound
Dwells on his dying lips) “ FORGIVE;" And ev'ry groan, and gaping wound,
Cries, “Father let the rebels live.” 5. Go you that rest upon the law,
And toil and seek salvation there ; Look to the flame that Moses saw,
And shrink, and tremble, and despair, 6. But I'll retire beneath the cross :
Saviour, at thy dear feet I lie ;
Hymn 191. c. M. Our duty to God. Exod. xx. 312. 1. THAT God, who made the worlds on high,
1 And air, and earth, and sea,
Own as thy God, and to his name
In homage bow the knee.
Of wood, or clay, or stone,
Aught thou hast seen or known. 3. Take not in vain the name of God:
Nor must thou ever dare,
By his dread name to swear.
From toil, to pray and praise,
Write them on ev'ry heart,
Nor from his paths depart!
Hymn 192. c.M. The glorious gospel of the blessed God, 1. Tim. i. 11. 1. U THAT wisdom, majesty and grace
V Thro' all the gospel shine! 'Tis God that speaks and we confess
The doctrine most divine. 2. Down from his starry throne on high,
Th' almighty Saviour comes; Lays his bright robes of glory by,
And feeble flesh assumes.
Upon the cross he pays:
Midst shouts of loftiest praise.
Before his Father's throne:
Mingles his merits with our tears,
And pours salvation down.
Thy justice and thy grace ;
Our firm dependence place.
Hymn 193. c. x.
U To the wild olive wood:
And grafts us in the good.
The Gentile and the Jew;' If pure and holy be the root,
Such are, the branches too.
Be dedicate to God;
And wash them in thy blood.
Shall thy salvation come,
In one eternal home.
Hymn 194. C. M. The Saviour's invitation. John vii. 37. 1. THE Saviour calls—let ev'ry ear,
1 Attend the heav'nly sound: Ye doubting souls, dismiss your fear,
Hope smiles reviving round.
2. For ev'ry thirsty, longing heart,
Here streams of bounty flow,
To banish mortal woe.
To ease your every pain,
Nor shall you thirst in vain. ..
The gracious call obey ;
And can you yet delay ? .
To thee let sinners fly; . And take the bliss thy love imparts,
And drink, and never die."
Hymn 195. L. M. Christ's invitation to sinners. Matt. xi. 28-30. 1.“ C OME hither, all ye weary souls,
u Ye heavy laden-sinners come,
“ And raise you to my heav'nly home. 2.“ They shall find rest that learn of me:
“ I'm of a meek and lowly mind:
“ And pride is restless as the wind.
“ My yoke, and bear it with delight!
“My grace shall make the burden light." 4. Jesus, we come at thy command,
With faith, and hope, and humble zeal,
