So shall thy glorious name be fear'd,
By those who never fear'd before. 3 () pity those who live in sin,
Preserve them from the sinner's doom : Open the ark and take them in,
And save them from the wrath to come. 4 So shall thy people joyful be,
The angels too will louder sing,
463. After Sermon. Show me a token for good.—Psalm lxxxvi. 17. 1 Of thy love some gracious token,

Life and peace on all bestow; When we join the world again, Let our hearts with thee remain !

rest.-EXODUS xxxiii. 14. 1 O LORD, be ever near us,

467. The Dying Love of Christ. C.M.
1 How condescending and how kind
Was God's eternal Son!
And pity brought him down. 2 This was compassion like a God,
That when the Saviour knew
His pity ne'er withdrew. 3 Now, though he reigns exalted high,
His love is still as great :
Nor let his saints forget.
Of Jesu's dying love;
One soft affection move.
While we his death record;
Mourn that we pierc'd the Lord.

Go in peace.-LUKE vii. 50.
LAMB of God, whose bleeding love
We now recall to mind,
And let us mercy find,
And bid us “go in peace!”
Let thy blood, by faith applied,
The sinner's pardon seal,
And all our sickness heal :
And bid us “go in peace!”
Lord, we would not hence depart,
Till thou our wants relieve;
And more thine image give:
Till perfected in holiness;
go in peace!”

that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.-Heb. vii. 25. 1 Our great High-Priest we sing,
His dying love adore;
Who lives for evermore :
And sinners to the utmost save. 2 Why then indulge despair,
Tho'sunk in deepest guilt ?
For such his blood was spilt:
For he can to the utmost save. 3 Believing souls, rejoice!
And on bis grace depend;
He'll love you to the end :
470. Invitation to the Lord's Supper. C.M. This is my blood of the New Testament, which is
shed for many for the remission of sins.—Matt. xxvi. 28. 1 This is the feast of heav'nly wine,
And God invites to sup;
Were press'd, to fill the cup.
