1. In the Redeemer, as my head,
Hymn 268. s. M.
Where'er it is bestow'd!
And is the gift of God.
An all-atoning Priest,
But looks for all in Christ.
When fillid with deep distress;
And trusts his righteousness.
And that divinely free;
To work this faith in me.
And saves me from its snares :-
And softens all my cares : 2. Extinguishes the thirst of sin,
And lights the sacred fire
And feeds the pure desire.
The healing balm to give;
And make the dying live.
4. Wide it unveils celestial worlds,
Where deathless pleasures reign;
Nor bids me seek in vain.
With the Redeemer's blood;
Upon a faithful God.
'Till this vile body dies ;
At once to glory rise.
N CanbAdam's sons arrive to heav’n:
Hymn 270. L. M.
Heb. x. 39. 1..
Can Adam's sons arrive to heav'n:
To have our former sins forgiv'n. 2. Not the best deeds that we have done
Can make a wounded conscience whole;
That flies to Christ, and saves the soul. 3. Lord, I believe thy heay'nly word,
Fain would I have my soul renew'd:.
To have it pardon'd and subdu'd. 4. O may thy grace its power display!
Let guilt and death no longer reign;
Nor let my humble faith be vain.
Hymn 271, L. Med
We walk through deserts dark as night,
'Till we arrive at heav'n, our home;
Faith is our guide, and faith our light. 2. The want of sight she well supplies,
She makes the pearly gates appear; Far into distant worlds she pries,
And brings eternal glories near. 3. Cheerful we tread the desert through,
While faith inspires a heav'nly ray, Tho' lions roar, and tempests blow,
And rocks and dangers fill the way. 4. So Abrah'm, by divine command,
Left his own house to walk with God;
Hymn 272. C.M. 1. ORD, I believe a rest remains
To all thy known:
And thou art lov'd alone..
Is fix'd on things above. ;
Cast out by perfect love.
And have thee all my own ; Thee, O my all-sufficient good,
I want, and thee alone.
Hymn 273. C. M. 1. Fotother help fcknow.
ATHER, I stretch my hands to thee, If thou withdraw thyself from me,
Ah, whither shall I go? 2. What did thine only Son endure,
Before I drew my breath!
What pain, what labour to secure
My soul from endless death! 3. O Jesus, could I this believe,
I now should feel thy pow'r: .
Nor let me wait one hour. 4. Author of faith, to thee I lift
My weary, longing eyes;
My soul without it dies.
O speak and I shall live!
'Till thou thy Spirit give.
Could they but see thy face,
And taste thy pard'ning grace!
Hymn 274. P. M.
Guide, and nourish me, and keep,
'Till thy love shall make me whole: Give me perfect soundness, give;
Make me steadfastly believe. 2. I am never at one stay;
Changing ev'ry hour I am:
Now and ever more the same:
'Stablish with thy grace my heart. 3. Lay thy weighty cross-on me, All my
unbelief controul: Till the rebel cease to be,
Keep him down within my soul:.
That he never more may move,
Root and ground me fast in love. 4. Give me faith to hold me up,
Walking over life's rough sea; Holy purifying hope,
Still my soul's sure anchor be: That I may be always thine, Perfect me in love divine.
Hymn 275. s. M. FATHER, I dare believe Thou wilt my guilty soul forgive,
My fallen soul renew.
And bid my heart be clean :
An end of all my sin.
But by believing thee: And waiting for thy blood t' impart
The spotless purity.
Jesus, the grace bestow;
And make we white as snow.
