3 O how shall I, whose native sphere Is dark, whose mind is dim, Before the Ineffable appear,

When, placed within Thy searching sight,
It shrinks not, but with calm delight
Can live, and look on Thee.

And on my naked spirit bear The uncreated beam?

Amen.

4 There is a way for man to rise
To that sublime abode ;-
An offering and a sacrifice,
A Holy Spirit's energies,

An Advocate with God.

mf 5 These, these prepare us for the sight Of Majesty above;

The sons of ignorance and night
Can dwell in the Eternal Light,
Through the Eternal Love.

mf 2 'Tis the rich gift of love divine:

'Tis full, out-measuring every crime: Unclouded shall its glories shine,

And feel no change by changing time.

Son, be of good cheer, thy sins be forgiven thee.-MATT. ix. 2.

a sound

To rebel sinners doomed to die;
Publish the bliss the world around:
Ye seraphs, shout it from the sky.

5 By this inspired, let all our days

With various holiness be crowned:
Let truth and goodness, prayer and praise
In all abide, in all abound.

T. Gibbons.

Grace first contrived a way
To save rebellious man ;
And all the steps that grace display
Which drew the wondrous plan

3 O'er sins, unnumbered as the sand,
And like the mountains for their size,
The seas of sovereign grace expand,
The seas of sovereign grace arise.

S.M.

By grace ye are saved.-EPH. ii. 5.

4 For this stupendous love of heaven,

What grateful honour shall we show? Where much transgression is forgiven, Let love with equal ardour glow.

Amen.

Grace taught my wandering feet
To tread the heavenly road:
And new supplies each hour I meet,
While pressing on to God.

Grace all the work shall crown
Through everlasting days;
It lays in heaven the topmost stone,
And well deserves the praise.
Philip Doddridge.

Who is a God like unto Thee, that pardoneth iniquity?—MICAH vii. 18.

GR

YREAT God of wonders, all Thy ways
Are matchless, godlike, and divine;
But the fair glories of Thy grace

More godlike and unrivalled shine:
Who is a pardoning God like Thee?
Or who has grace so rich and free?

Such guilty, daring worms to spare;
This is Thy grand prerogative,

And in the honour none shall share :
Who is a pardoning God like Thee?
Or who has grace so rich and free?

A pardon sealed with Jesus' blood:
Who is a pardoning God like Thee?
Or who has grace so rich and free?

S. MART.

ƒ 40 may this strange, this wondrous grace,
This matchless miracle of love,
Fill the wide earth with grateful praise
And all the angelic choirs above :
Who is a pardoning God like Thee?
Or who has grace so rich and free?
Samuel Davies.

Amen.
