4. As in soft silence vernal showers: Descend and cheer the fainting flowers, So in the secrecy of love
Falls the sweet influence from above. 5. That heavenly influence let me find
In holy silence of the mind,
Diffusing wide its rich perfume.

But soon we droop again, and faint,
Our sure inseparable guide ;
O might he in our heart abide,
Hymn 110. P. M. 1. A RM of the Lord, awake, awake,

Tear their vain confidence away. Shew them the guilt of unbelief,
And fill their hearts with sacred grief. 2. Impart the salutary pain,
The sudden soul condemning power. Blow on the goodliness of man.
Wither the grass, and blast the flower, That, when their works are all o'erthrown,
The word of grace may stand alone. 3. Naked, and destitute, and blind
Themselves let the poor wretches see,
That every mouth is stopt by thee..
Who liv'd and dy'd their souls to save,
No part or lot in Christ they have,

The heavenly gift unspeakable!

Thy works and offices proclaim,
Thou dost with kind and tender care
That God may yet again be ours. 2. Thou didst thy fallen creature see, Fallen from happiness and thee,

And make them thy eternal home. 3. Thou dost the first good thoughts inspires The first faint spark of pure desire
Is kindled by thy gracious breath. By thee made conscious of his fall, The sinner hears thy sudden call,
And starts out of the sleep of death. 4. Convinc'd of sin and unbelief, He sinks o’erwhelm’d with sacred grief,
And pines disconsolate for: God,
Hymn 114. L. M.
Jolin xiv. 16, 17. 1: EAR Lord, and shall thy spirit rest
V In such a wretched heart as mine? Unworthy dwelling! glorious guest!

'Tis he sustains my fainting heart; Else would my hope for ever die, And every cheering ray depart.

Our doubts and fears remove ; And kindle in our breasts the flame
Of never-dying love.. 4. Convince us of our sin;
Then lead to Jesu's blood';,
