1 AND does the kind Redeemer stoop,
M In such reviving strains,
And heal their heart-felt pains ?
2 Will be on no account cast out
The penitent, that flies
And all salvation's joys ?
3 From age to age have coming souls
A hearty welcome found, Pleasures beyond whate'er they knew ,
In sin's enchanted round ?
4 Can they his truth and grace attest,
With their expiring breath, -
Their cordial too in death?
6 Be gone, my unbelieving fears,
Nor more, my soul, delay; Jesus, I come, and at thy feet
Fain would thy call obey.
6 Frown not away a soul that wants
Thy grace to trust and try, Determin’d, if I perish, Lord,
Low at thy feet to die.
38. For a Blessing on the Word. (P. M.)
N what has now been sown,
Thy blessing, Lord, bestow;
To make it spring and grow:
39. After Sermon. (P. M.)
Brought the Shepherd of the sheep,
All our souls in safety keep! 2 May he teach us to fulfil,
What is pleasing in his sight; .. . Perfect us in all his will,
And preserve us day and night!
Who the cov’nant seal'd with blood,
Loud thanksgivings to our God.
The same. (P.M.)
1 L ASTEN, sinner, to be wise,
11 Stay not for the morrow's sun:
Harder is she to be won.
2 Hasten, mercy to implore;
Stay not for the morrow's sun : Lest thy season should be o’er,
Ere this evening's stage be run. 3 Hasten, sinner, to return,
Stay not for the morrow's sun; Lest thy lamp should fail to burn,
Ere salvation's work is done. 4 Hasten, sinner, to be blest ;
Stay not for the morrow's sun ; Lest perdition thee arrest,
Ere the morrow is begun.
LORD'S DAY. 41. For a Lord's Day Morning. (S. M.) 1 PEHOLD the lofty sky
D Declares its Maker God,
Proclaim his pow'r abroad.
Still keep their course the same; While night to day, and day to night,
Divinely teach his name. 3 In ev'ry diff'rent land
Their gen'ral voice is known;
And orders of his throne.
Here he reveals his word:
To bid us know the Lord.
5 His statutes and commands
Are set before our eyes:
Where our salvation lies.
His truth without deceit;
And his rewards are great.
Thy glory to proclaim,
In my Redeemer's name.
For a Lord's Day Morning (S. M.)
Begins his glorious way;
And life and light convey.
It spreads diviner light,
And gives the blind their sight.
And all thy judgments just!
And men securely trust.
Are thy directions giv'n!
But find the path to heav'n.
43. The Morning of a Lord's Day. (C. M.)
Without thy cheering grace.
Beneath a burning sky,
And they must drink or die.
Thro' all thy temple shine;
That vision so divine !
Can please my soul so well,
And in thy presence dwell.
Can my best passions move,
As thy forgiving love.
I'll bless my God and King ;
For the Lord's Day. (L. M.)
To praise thy name, give thanks, and sing ;
