Believe, believe the record true,
Ye all are bought with Jesu's blood:
My Lord, my Love, is crucify'd.
And gladly catch the healing stream:
And give up all our hearts to him.
Hymn 49, 1. M.
I could for ever think and sing;
Arise, ye needy, he'll relieve.
Ask, and he turns your hell to heav'n;
Jesus, thy balm will make it whole.
He clos'd his eyes to shew us God. · Let all the world fall down and know,
That none but God such love can show. . 4. 'Tis thee I love, for thee alone
I shed my tears and make my moan;
I meet the object of my love. $. Insatiate to this spring I Hy;
I drink, and yet am ever dry;
Hymn 50. P. M. 1. ALL ye that by, to Jesus draw nigh;
To you is it nothing that Jesus should die? Your ransom and peace, your surety he is,
Come see if there ever was sorrow like his. , 2. For what you have done, his blood must atone;
The Father hath punish'd, for you, his dear Son:
Your sins on the Lamb, and he bore them away. 3. He answer'd for all, O come at his call, · And low, at his cross, with astonishment fall,
But lift up your eyes, to Jesus's cries,
Impassive he suffers, immortal he dies. 4. He dies to atone for sins not his own,
Your debt he hath paid, and your work he hath done:
Who made intercession : “My Father, forgive !'s - 5. For you and for me he pray'd on the tree;
His prayer is accepted, the sinner is free.
And come for the pardon, God cannot deny. 6. My pardon I claim; a sinner I am, .
A sinner believing in Jesus's name :
O Father, thou know'st he hath dy'd in my place! -7. His death is my plea, my advocate see,
And hearthe blood speak that hath answer'd for me
Hymn 51. L. M.
11 Lo! Salem's daughters weep around ;
A sudden trembling shakes the ground!
For him who groan'd beneath your load :
A thousand drops of richer blood.,
2. Here's love and grief beyond degree,
The Lord of glory dies for man !
Jesus, the dead, revives again!
(In vain the tomb forbids his rise)
And shout him welcome to the skies. 3. Break off your tears, ye saints, and tell,
How high your great deliv'rer reigns;
And led the monster death in chains !
“Born to redeem, and strong to save !"
Hymn 52. c. M.
I We wretched sinners lay, :
Or spark of glim’ring day.
Beheld our helpless grief: He saw, and (O amazing love !) • He ran to our relief. 3. Down from the shining seats above
· With joyful haste he fled; · Enter'd the grave in mortal flesh,
And dwelt among the dead.
Their lasting silence break,
The Saviour's praises speak. 5. Angels assist our mighty joys,
Strike all your harps of gold :
But when you raise your highest notes,
His love can ne'er be told.
Hymn 53.. C. M.
And did my Sov'reign die ?
For such a worm as I?
He groan’d upon the tree?
And love beyond degree!
And shut his glories in;
For man's the creature's, sin !
While his dear cross appears;
And melt my eyes to tears.
The debt of love I owe:
'Tis all that I can do.
Hymn 54, P. M. 1. V E heavens rejoice in Jesus's grace, ; 1 Let earth make a noise, and echo his praise;
Our all loving Saviour hath pacify'd God,
And paid for his favour the price of his blood. 2. Ye mountains and vales, in praises abound,
Ye hills and ye dales, continue the sound :
3. Atonement he made for every one,
The debt he hath paid, the work he hath done ; Shout all the creation, below and above,
Ascribing salvation to Jesus's love.
Who take it unbought, he frees them from thrall ;
Hymn 55. L. M. 1. THERE hangs the Saviour of mankind,
1 His visage marrd, his head reclin'd,
His strength decays, his spirit fails :
Beneath the sin-avenging stroke. 3. The thieves expiring on each side
Proclaim the crimes for which they dy'd; * But what, dear Saviour, hast thou done?
Thou dy'st for sin, but not thine own. 4. Jesus, and didst thou bleed for me?
O great, O boundless mystery!
Hymn 56. C. M.
Stretch'd out upon the tree;
And die for you and me. 2. Why is his body rack'd with pains,
And wrung with keenest smart? Why flows the blood out of his veins, Why torn with grief his heart?
