8.8.8.6.

2.
When, weary in the Christian race,
Far off appears my resting-place,
And, fainting, I mistrust Thy grace,
Then, Saviour, plead for me.

8.8.8.6.

1.

THOU, the contrite sinner's Friend,
Who, loving, lovest to the end,
On this alone my hopes depend,
That Thou wilt plead for me.

3.
When I have erred and gone astray,
Afar from Thine and wisdom's way,
And see no glimmering, guiding ray,

Still, Saviour, plead for me.

G. W. TORRANCE.

He ever liveth to make intercession-HEB. vii. 25.

4.

When Satan, by my sins made bold,
Strives from Thy cross to loose my hold,
Then with Thy pitying arms enfold,
And plead, O plead for me.

dim And when my dying hours draw near,
Darkened with anguish, guilt and fear,
Then to my fainting sight appear,
Pleading in heaven for me.

6.

cr When the full light of heavenly day
Reveals my sins in dread array,
Say, Thou hast washed them all away;
Dear Saviour, plead for me.

f 1 REJOICE! the Lord is King:

Your Lord and King adore;
Mortals, give thanks and sing,
And triumph evermore :

Lift up your heart, lift up your voice:
Rejoice; again I say, rejoice.

2 Jesus the Saviour reigns,

The God of truth and love;
When He had purged our stains,
He took His seat above:
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice:
Rejoice; again I say, rejoice.

[graphic]

Let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.-Ps. cxlix. 2.

3

His kingdom cannot fail :

He rules o'er earth and heaven; The keys of death and hell

Are to our Jesus given:

Lift up your heart, lift up your voice:
Rejoice; again I say, rejoice.

4 He all His foes shall quell,

Shall all our sins destroy;
And every bosom swell

Rejoice in glorious hope:

Jesus, the Judge, shall come,
And take His servants up
To their eternal home :

We soon shall hear the archangel's voice;
The trump of God shall sound, Rejoice!

C. Wesley,

With pure seraphic joy:
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice:
Rejoice; again I say, rejoice.
