5. Then let us all thy fulness know,
From ev'ry sin set free:
Sav'd, to the utmost, sav❜d below,
And perfected by thee.

Hymn 306. L. M..


N inward baptism of pure fire, Wherewith to be baptiz'd I have; 'Tis all my longing soul's desire; This, only this my soul can save.. 2. Straight'ned I am, till this be done ;. Kindle in me the living flame; Father, in me, reveal thy Son :..

Baptize me into Jesu's name.. 3. Transform my nature into thine,

Let all my pow'rs thine impress feel. Let all my soul become divine,

And stamp me with thy Spirit's seal. 4. Love, mighty love, my heart o'erpow'r', Ah! why dost thou so long delay ? Cut short the work, bring near the hour, And let me, see thy perfect day.. 5. Behold, for thee I ever wait,

Now let me in thine image shine, Now the new heav'ns and earth create, And plant with righteousness divine. 6. If with the wretched sons of men It still be thy delight to live, Come, Lord, beget my soul again, Thyself, thy quick'ning Spirit give.


Hymn 307. c. M.

APPY the souls to Jesus joind,


•H sav'd by grace alone;

Walking in all his ways, they find
Their heav'n on earth begun.

2: The church triumphant in thy love,
Their mighty joys we know ;

They sing the Lamb in hymns above,
And we in hymns below.

3. Thee, in thy glorious realm, they praise,
And bow before thy throne!
We in the kingdom of thy grace :
The kingdoms are but one.

4. The holy to the holiest leads ;
From thence our spirits rise;
And he who in thy statutes treads,,
Shall meet thee in the skies.


BO Jesus, Son of God:

And take away.whate'er thy grace
Hath hitherto withstood.

2. Deaden my nature's active fire,
And end all useless strife;
That I may henceforth only thirst
For thee, the well of life.

Hymn 308. c. M.

ESPRINKLE with thy blood my heart;

3. Here may I stay, and drink my fill,
And ne'er from hence depart;
My longing is for evermore :
"Fix at this spring my heart."

4. Dear Saviour, thou well know'st how oft
I've turn'd away from thee:

Q let thy work, renew'd to-day,
Always abide in me..



Hymn 309. s. M.


OME, ye that love the Lord,
And let your joys be known;
Join in a song with sweet accord,
Whilst ye surround his throne.
Let those refuse to sing

Who never knew our God;
But servants of the heav'nly King
May speak their joys abroad.
2. The God who rules on high,
Who all the earth surveys,
Who rides upon the stormy sky,-
And calms the roaring seas:
This awful God is ours,

Our Father and our Love:

He will send down his heav'nly pow'rs-
To carry us above.

3. There we shall see his face,

And never, never sin!

There from the rivers of his grace,
Drink endless pleasures in:

Yea, and before we rise,

To that immortal state,
The thoughts of such amazing bliss
Should constant joys create.

4. The men of grace have found
Glory begun below;

Celestial fruit on earthly ground
From faith and hope may grow:

Then let our songs abound,
And ev'ry tear be dry;
We're marching through Immanuel's ground-
To fairer worlds on high.

Hymn 310. L. M.



the man who finds the grace, The blessing of God's chosen race, The wisdom coming from above, The faith that sweetly works by love. 2. Happy beyond description he, Who knows the Saviour dy'd for me, The gift unspeakable obtains, And heav'nly understanding gains. 3. Wisdom divine! who tells the priceOf wisdom's costly merchandize? Wisdom to silver we prefer, And gold is dross compar❜d to her.

4. Hor hands are fill'd with length of days,
True riches and immortal praise:
Riches of Christ on all bestow'd,
And honour that descends from God.

5. To purest joys she all invites,
Chaste, holy, spiritual delights;
Her ways are ways of pleasantness,
And and all her flow'ry paths are peace.

6. Happy the man who wisdom gains;
Thrice happy who his guest retains;
He owns, and shall for ever own,
Wisdom, and Christ, and heav'n are one..


Hymn 311. P. M.

ET earth and heav'n agree,
Angels and men be join'd,
To celebrate with me


The Saviour of mankind:

T'adore the all-atoning Lamb,
And bless the sound of Jesu's name.

2. Jesus! transporting sound!
The joy of earth and heav'n ;.

No other help is found,
No other name is giv❜n,
By which we can salvation have,
But Jesus came the world to save.
3. Jesus! harmonious name!

It charms the host above;
They evermore proclaim,

And wonder at his love:
"Tis all their happiness to gaze,
'Tis heav'n to see our Jesu's face.
4. His name the sinner hears,
And is from sin set free;
'Tis music in his ears;
'Tis life and victory :
New songs do now his lips employ,
And dances his glad heart for joy.

5. Stung by the scorpion sin, My poor expiring soul The balmy sound drinks in,

And is at once made whole : See there! Lord upon the tree! my I hear, I feel, he dy'd for me. 6. O unexampled love!


O all-redeeming grace!
How swiftly didst thou move
To save a fallen race.

What shall I do to make it known, What thou for all mankind hast done?

Hymn 312. c. M.

HY ceaseless, unexhausted love,
Unmerited and free,


Delights our evil to remove,
And help our misery.

2. Thou waitest to be gracious still; Thou dost with sinners bear,
