Hymn 204. P. M. ; Why will ye die? O house of Israel! Ezek. xviii: 31; 1. CINNERS, turn, why will ye die?
D God, your Maker, asks you why:
2. Sinners, turn, why will ye die?

Will you grieve your God, and die? 4. Dead, already dead within,
Spiritually dead in sin ;
Hymn 205. c. M. t. T OVERS of pleasure more than God,
I For you, Christ suffer'd pain :
And shall he bleed in vain ?
Your basest crimes he bore : Drunkards, on him your sins were laid,
That you might sin no more. 3. The God of love, to earth he came,
That you might come to heav'n:.
Believe, believe, on Jesu's name,
And see your sins forgiv'n.
And sure as he hath dy'd,
And thou art justify'd.
Hymn 206, c. M. Conviction of sin by the law, Rom. vii. 8, 9, 14, 24, 1. I ORD, how secure my conscience was,
1 And felt no inward dread!. I was alive without the law, · And thaught my sins were dead. 2. My hopes of heav'n were firm and bright,

I find how vile I am. 3. My guilt appear'd but small before,
'Till terribly I saw How perfect, holy, just and pure;
Was thine eternal law.
My sins reviv'd again.
And all my hopes were slain. 5. I'm like a helpless captive, sold
Under the pow'r of sin;
Nor keep my conscience clean. 6. My God, I cry with ev'ry breath
For some kind pow'r to save.
And thus redeem the slave. n.
Hymn 207. C. M. 1. M ISTAKEN souls! that dream of heav'ng
W And make their empty boast Of inward joys, and sins forgiv’n,
While they are slaves to lust. 2. Vain are our fancies, airy flights,
If faith be cold and dead. None but a living pow'r unites
To Christ the living head.
Tis faith that works by love ;
And lifts the thoughts above.
By a celestial pow'r ;
In the decisive hour.
Hymn 208. c. M.
VI He burns within with restless fires;
Some solid good to fill the mind;
The inward thirst and torment still.
To change the place, but keep the pain. 4. Great God! subdue this vicious thirst,
This love to vanity and dust ;
Hymn 209. L: M. The humble enlightened, and carnal reason humblema
Luke x. 21, 22. 1. THERE was an hour when Christ rejoic’d,
1 And spoke his joy in words of praise : “Father, I thank thee, mighty God,
“Lord of the earth, and heav'ns and seas. 2.“ I thank thy sovoreign pow'r and love,
“That crowns my doctrine with success : “And makes the babes in knowledge learn “The height, and breadth and length of grace. 3.“But all this glory lies conceald,
“From men of prudence and of wit ;**
