5. Eternal, undivided Lord,
Hymn 252. P. M.
HOU great mysterious God unknown, Whose love hath gently led me on, Ev'n from my infant days; Mine inmost soul expose to view, And tell me if I never knew, Thy justifying grace.
2. If I have only known thy fear,
3.. Short of thy love I would not stop,
I would not, Lord, my soul deceive,
4. Whate'er obstructs thy pard❜ning love,
Hymn 253. L. M..
hope, my all, my Saviour thou, To thee, lo! now my soul I bow::
I feel the bliss thy wounds impart,
Save me from sin and satan's pow'r ;
Hymn 254. L. M.
THEN, gracious Lord, when shall it be That I shall find my all in thee! The fulness of thy promise prove, 'The seal of thine eternal love?
2. A poor blind child I wander here,
3. Thee, only thee, I fain would find,
4. When from the arm of flesh set free,
Hymn 255. L. M.
HOM man forsakes thou wilt not leave, Ready the outcasts to receive; Though all my simpleness I own, And all my faults to thee are known. 2. Ah! wherefore did I ever doubt? Thou wilt in no wise cast me out: A helpless soul that comes to thee, With only sin and misery.
3. Lord, I am sick, my sickness cure :
4. Lord, I am blind, be thou my sight:
Hymn 256. L. M.
IERCE, fill me with an humble fear;
And mark the risings of desire. 3. O! that my tender soul might fly
The first abhorr'd approach of ill;
The slightest touch of sin to feel! 4. Till thou anew my soul create,
Still may I strive, and watch and pray :
And long to see the perfect day.
Hymn 257. L. M. GOD, most merciful and true, Thy nature to my soul impart; 'Stablish with me the cov❜nant new, And stamp thine image on my heart. 2. To real holiness restor❜d,
O let me gain my Saviour's mind; And in the knowledge of my Lord Fulness of life eternal find.
3. Remember, Lord, my sins no more; Though them I may no more forget; But, sunk in guiltless shame, adore With speechless wonder at thy feet. 4. O'erwhelm'd with thy stupendous grace I shall not in thy presence move; But breathe unutterable praise
In rapt❜rous awe and silent love.
5. Then ev'ry murm'ring thought and vain
I cannot of my goodness boast.
Hymn 258. c. M.
OUNTAIN of life, to all below,
2. Into that happy number, Lord,
3. Turn back our nature's rapid tide, And we shall flow to thee :
While down the stream of time we glide,
4. The well of life to us thou art,
5. We soon shall reach the boundless sea,
Hymn 259. c. M.
ASK the gift of righteousness,
2. My ardent soul cries out, oppress'd,
Nor can I, Lord, nor will I rest,
3. Art thou not able to convert,
