And to our wond'ring view reveal
The secret love of God.
That rules the courts of bliss;
Th' eternal prince of peace. 6. 'Tis thine to cleanse the heart,
T'illuminate the soul;
Hymn 116. c. M..
Descending from above,
With faith and hope and love.
By sin and grief oppress’d:
And to the weary rest. 3. Tny sweet communion charms the soul,
And gives true peace and joy,
Nor all his wiles destroy.
To confidence that's vain:
Who love the Lamb once slain. 5. Breathe comfort where distress abounds,
O make our conscience clean; And heal' with balm from Jesu's wounds,
The fest'ring sore of sin.
Take out the heart of stone;
And merits of the Son.
Hymn 117. L. M.
The effusions of the Spirit. 1. REAT was the day, the joy was great,
W When the divine disciples met: While on their heads the spirit came
And sat like tongues of cloven flame. 2. What gifts, what miracles he gave !
And pow'r'to kill, and pow'r to save,
Instead of shields and spears and swords.
From east to west, from south to north:
Of what almighty force they are,
And lay the proudest rebel low!
Are by these heav'nly arms subdu'd;
And hates the doctrine of the cross.
I would be led in triumph too,
Hymn 118. C. m.
Let us thine influ'nce prove; .
Fountain of life and love.
Thy prophets wrote and spoke :
Unlock the truth (thyself the key!)
Unseal the sacred book.
In this appointed hour,
And bid it come with pow'r. . 4. Open the heart of them that hear,
To make the Saviour room;
Let faith by hearing come.
. . Hymn 119. P. M.
D Enliv’ning, consecrating fire,
Our dull, our frozen hearts inspire:
Come, condescending spirit, come!
Of the pure flame which seraphs feel,
Or lie benu mb'd and stupid still:
We would not quench the heavenly fire; Our hearts as fuel we prepare,
Though in the flame we should expire: Our breasts expand to make thee room:
Come purifying spirit come!
Let every pious passion glow!
Kindle in our cold hearts below!
Hymn 120. c. M. 1. Holy Father, God of love?
To thee our hearts we raise : ' Tny all sustaining pow'r we prove,.
And gladly sing thy praise.
Our sacrifice receive;
To thee ourselves we give.
Shed in our hearts abroad;
And be with Christ in God.
Hymn 121. L. M. 1. OUR ḥeav'nly Father is not known
To us, but in the Son alone ; His mercy, love, and boundless grace
We see display'd in Jesu's face. 2. Great God! how dreadful was the name,
Until the God-man Jesus came! We could not love or honour thee,
Unless the Son had set us free.. 3. O love, no human tongue can tell!
O love divine unsearchable ! : The Father gave hris only Son
To bleed and die for slaves undone! 4. Can any ill distress my heart, .
Since God with his own son did part? What'er I want can't be deny'd,
Since Christ for me was crucify'di .
Hymn 122. L. M. 1. D LESS'D be the Father and his lover
D To whose celestial source we owe Rivers of endless joys above,
And rills of comfort here below. . 2. Glory to thee, great son of God,
From whose dear wounded body rolls A precious stream of vital blood,
Pardon and life for dying souls. 3. We give thee, sacred Spirit, praise,
Who in our hearts of sin and woe
And God the Spirit we adore ;
Without a bottom, or a shore.
Hymn 123. c. M. 1. LORY to God the Father's name,
U Who from our sinful race Chose out his fav’rites to proclaim
The honours of his grace. 2. Glory to God the Son be paid,
Who dwelt in humble clay, And, to redeem us from the dead,
Gave his own life away.
From whose almighty pow'r
And bless the happy hour.
Th' eternal three in one, Who by the wonders of his love
Has made his nature known.
