st Comforter, with peace and joy
Hymn 252. P. M. THOU great mysterious God unknown, 1 Whose love hath gently led me on,
Ev’n from my infant days ; Mine inmost soul expose to view, And tell me if I never knew,
Thy justifying grace.
Thy drawing from above :
Thy sweet forgiving love.
The sense of sin forgiv'n:
That antepast of heav'n..
Thy glory to display : heart
My heart of unbelief convince,
And take them all away.
I feel the bliss thy wounds impart,
I find thee, Saviour, in my heart.-
Protect me through my life's short day ;
And keep me, Saviour, near thy side. 3. Correct, reprove, and comfort me ;
As I have need, my Saviour be :
Then clasp me, Saviour, to thy heart. 4. In fierce temptation's darkest hour
Save me from sin and satan's pow'r ;
And reign, my Saviour-reign alone. 5. My suff’ring time shall soon be o'er,
Then shall I sigh and weep no more : My ransom'd soul shall soar away, 'To sing thy praise in endless day.
Hymn 254. I. M. 1. W H EN, gracious Lord, when shall it be
V That I shall find my all in thee!
If haply I may feel thee near :
Amidst the blaze of gospel-day.
And cast the world and sin behind :
Of all thou hast in earth or heav'n.
Jesus, my soul shall fly to thee :
Hymn 255. L. M. 1. THOM man forsakes thou wilt not leave,
VV Ready the outcasts to receive ; Though all my simpleness I own,
And all my faults to thee are known. 2. Al! wherefore did I ever doubt ?
Thou wilt in no wise cast me out:
I want, do thou enrich the poor :
O lift the abject sinner up !
Hymn 256. L. M.
T My utter helplessness reveal :
Thee, may I always nearer feel ! 2. O! that to thee my constant mind
Might with an even flame aspire ;
And mark the risings of desire. 3. O! that my tender soul might fly
The first abhorr'd approach of ill ;
The slightest touch of sin to feel ! 4. Till thou anew my soul create,
Still may I strive, and watch and pray :
And long to see the perfect day.
Hymn 257. 1. M.
Thy nature to my soul impart; 'Stablish with me the cov'nant new,
And stamp thine image on my heart. 2. To real holiness restor'd,
O let me gain my Saviour's mind; And in the knowledge of my Lord
Fulness of life eternal find. 3. Remember, Lord, my sins no more;
Though them I may no more forget; But, sunk in guiltless shame, adore
With speechless wonder at thy feet. 4. O'erwhelm'd with thy stupendous grace
I shall not in thy presence move; But breathe unutterable praise
In rapt'rous awe and silent love. 5. Then ev'ry murm'ring thought and vain
Expires, in sweet confusion lost: I cannot of my cross complain,
I cannot of my goodness boast. 6. Pardon'd for all that I have done,
My mouth as in the dust I hide, And glory give to God alone,
My God forever pacify'd!
· Hymn 258. c. M.. 1. TOUNTAIN of life, to all below,
T Let thy salvation roll : Water, replenish, and q'erflow
Ev'ry believing soul.
Us weary sinners take ;
For thine own mercy's sake..
Turn back our nature's rapid tide,
And we shall flow to thee :
To our eternity.
Of joy the swelling flood;
We swift return to God.
Into thy fulness fall ;
Our God, our all in all.
Hymn 259. C. M.
1 The sin-subduing pow'r: -
And never grieve thee more.
Impatient to be freed !
'Till I am sav'd indeed.
Art thou not willing too ?
To conquer and renew?
Hymn 260. c. M.
1. John iii. 9.
To feed, and grow, and thrive:
And by the gospel live.
