2. Nothing but truth before his throne
3. Their lifted eyes salute the skies,

Then shall I stand before thy face,

3. She hides my follies from mine eyes,
4. Rend, O my God, the veil away:
Again possess this heart of mine;
3. SUPPLICATION AND PRAYER.
Hymn 233. L. M.
1. TAY, thou insulted Spirit, stay,
Nor cast the sinner quite away, Nor take thine everlasting flight. 2. Tho' I have steel'd my stubborn heart, And shaken off my guilty fears, And vex'd, and urg'd thee to depart, For many days, and months, and years. 3. Though I have most unfaithful been
Of all who e'er thy grace receiv'd, Ten thousand times thy goodness seen, Ten thousand times thy goodness griev'd. 4. Yet, O! the chief of sinners spare,
In honour of my great High-Priest; Nor in thy righteous anger swear
T' exclude me from thy people's rest. 5. If yet thou canst, my sins forgive,
From now, O Lord, relieve my woes. Into thy rest of love receive,
And bless me with the calm repose. 5. From now my weary soul release,
Up-raise me with thy gracious hand,

And never grieve thee more!

3. Give us ourselves and thee to know,
4. Convince us first of unbelief,
5. Impov'rish, Lord, and then relieve,
And then, enrich the poor;
The knowledge of our sickness give,
6. That blessed sense of guilt impart,
7. Our desp❜rate state through sin, declare
Hymn 236. L. M.
when shall it be, That I no more shall break with thee; When will this war of passions cease, And my free soul enjoy thy peace. 2. Here I repent, and sin again;
Now I revive, and now am slain;
3. O Saviour, when, when shall I bę
4. Guide thou, O Lord, guide thou my course,
Hymn 237, c. M,
WANT a principle within,
2. That I from thee no more may part,
O God, my conscience make :
4. If to the right or left I stray,
That moment, Lord, reprove, And let me weep my life away, For having griev'd thy love. 5.0! may the least omission pain My well-instructed soul; And drive me to the blood again, Which makes the wounded whole.

The angels owe their bliss;
5. Not all the harps above
Can make a heav'nly place,
