2 Begone, unworthy of my cares, Ye flattering baits of sense! Inestimable worth appears,—
The pearl of price immense.
3 Should both the Indies, at my call,
4 Should earth's vain treasures all depart,
5 Dear Sovereign of my soul's desires!
Accept the praise that grace inspires,
Christ, our Support in Death.
1 JESUS! the vision of thy face
Hath overpowering charms:
Scarce shall I feel death's cold embrace,
2 And while ye hear my heart-strings break, How sweet the minutes roll!
A mortal paleness on my cheek,
98. Christ, our Wisdom and our Righteousness.
1 BURIED in shadows of the night,
4 Poor helpless worms in thee possess
Give our whole selves, O Lord! to thee.
All Things in Christ.
1 THOU very-present Aid
In suffering and distress!
The mind, which still on thee is stayed,
2 The soul, by faith reclined
3 Sorrow and fear are gone,
Whene'er thy face appears;
4 It hallows every cross,
It sweetly comforts me;
5 Jesus, to whom I fly,
Will all my wishes fill;
What though created streams are dry?
6 Stripped of my earthly friends,
And peace, and joy which never ends,
The Mercy of God in Christ.
2 Such was the pity of our God,
He loved the race of man so well,
Of sins, and save our souls from hell.
3 Sinners! believe the Saviour's word,
Love of Christ in the Heart.
1 COME, dearest Lord! descend and dwell,
2 Come, fill our hearts with inward strength;'
3 Now to the God whose power can do
More than our thoughts and wishes know, Be everlasting honors done
By all the church, through Christ, the Son.
Vital Union to Christ.
1 DEAR Saviour! we are thine
Our names, our hearts, we would resign;
2 To thee we still would cleave,
If millions tempt us Christ to leave
3 Thy Spirit shall unite
Our souls to thee, our head;
4 Death may our souls divide
From these abodes of clay;
5 Since Christ and we are one,
Why should we doubt and fear?
God's Love in Christ.
1 THE Saviour!-Oh! what endless charms
2 Here pardon, life, and joys divine,
For guilty rebels lost in sin,
And doomed to endless wo.
3 Oh! the rich depths of love divine,
4 On thee alone my hope relies,
My Lord, my life, my sacrifice,
Mission of Christ.
1 COME, every pious heart,
That loves the Saviour's name!
Your noblest powers exer
To celebrate his fame;
Tell all above, and all below,
2 He left his starry crown,
And laid his robes aside;
On wings of love, came down,
3 From the dark grave he rose,-
In glorious triumph led;
Up through the sky the conqueror rode,
4 From thence he 'll quickly come,→
And bear our spirits home
To realms of endless day:
There shall we see his lovely face,
King of Saints.
1 COME, ye that love the Saviour's name,
The sovereign of your hearts proclaim,
2 Behold your King, your Saviour, crowned With glories all-divine;
And tell the wondering nations round,
3 Infinite power and boundless grace,
Ye that have e'er beheld his face!
4 When in his earthly courts we view
5 And shall we long and wish in vain?
A new Song to the Lamb.
1 BEHOLD the glories of the Lamb,
2 Let elders worship at his feet,
3 Those are the prayers of all the saints,
