4. No bleeding bird, nor bleeding beast,
Nor hyssop branch, nor sprinkling priest,
Can wash the dismal stain away. 5. Jesus, my God, Thy blood alone
Hath power sufficient to atone:
No Jewish types could cleanse me so.
Nor Alesh nor soul hath rest or ease;
Doxology. L. M.
Toiling I cry, “Sweet Spirit, come,
But swell my sails, and speed my way.
And loose my cable from below;
And living waters gently roll,
But sin hangs heavy on my soul. 2. O might I once mount up and see
The glories of the eternal skies,
How despicable to my eyes !
3. Had I a glance of Thee, my God,
Kingdoms and men would vanish soon ;
As a dim candle dies at noon.
I should perceive the noise no more
While rattling thunders round us roar. 5. Great All in All, Eternal King!
Let me but view Thy lovely face,
Thine endless grandeur and Thy grace.
Breaks up the surface of the seas,
Her hand may sow the seeds of light2. Thy grace can send its breathings o'er,
The spirit dark and lost before;
For truth divine to enter there.
In silence lay the unbreathing wire;
Then angels stooped to hear the song. 4. So sleeps the soul, till Thou, O Lord,
Shalt deign to touch its lifeless chord;
L. M. 1. LORD, how secure and blest are they,
Who feel the joys of pardoned sin ! Should storms of wrath shake earth and sea Their minds have heaven and
2. The day glides swiftly o'er their heads, Made
of innocence and love; And soft and silent as the shades,
Their nightly minutes gently move. 3. Quick as their thoughts their joys come on,
But fly not half so swift away ;
And calm as summer evenings be. 4. How oft they look to heavenly hills,
Where groves of living pleasures grow;
Sits undisturbed upon their brow! 5. They scorn to seek our golden toys,
But spend the day, and share the night,
That heaven prepares for their delight.
1. O Thou, to whose all-searching sight
The darkness shineth as the light,
O burst these bonds, and set it free.
affections to the cross; Hallow each thought; let all within
Be clean, as Thou, my Lord, art clean. 3. If in this darksome wild I stray,
Be Thou my light, be Thou my way:
No fraud, while Thou, my God, art near. 4. When rising floods my soul o'erflow,
When sinks my heart in waves of woe
5. Saviour, where'er Thy steps I see,
Dauntless, untired, I follow Thee;
My grateful powers shall sound Thy praise,
And warble to the silent night.
And griefs would tear my throbbing breast,
Shall check the murmur and the sigh. 3. When death o'er nature shall prevail,
And all its powers of language fail,
And mean the thanks I can not speak. 4. But oh! when that last conflict's o'er,
And I am chained to flesh no more,
To join the music of the skies ! 5. The cheerful tribute will I give,
Long as a deathless soul can live,
1. TREMBLING, before Thine awful throne,
O Lord ! in dust my sins I own:
Contend !-O smile, and heal the strife. 2. The Saviour smiles! upon my soul
New tides of hope tumultuous roll-
3. Earth has a joy unknown in heaven
The new-born peace of sins forgiven!
Ye angels! never dimmed your sight. 4. Ye saw of old, on chaos rise
The beauteous pillars of the skies ;
And evening folds her drooping wings. 5. Bright heralds of th’ Eternal Will,
Abroad His errand ye fulfill;
Symphonious, in His presence play. 6. Loud is the song, the heavenly plain
Is shaken by the choral strain,
Draw music from each chiming star. 7. But I amid your choirs shall shine,
And all your knowledge will be mine;
1. God named Love, whose fount Thou art,
Thy crownless church before Thee stands,
And too much striving in her hands. 2. “Love as I loved you”—was the sound
That on Thy lips expiring sate !
We hated as the worldly hate.
Thy church, though fallen, before Thee stands ; Behold, the voice is Jacob's still,
Albeit the hands are Esau's hands.
