5 To thee we'owe our wealth and friends,
And health and safe abode :
If once compar'd to thee!
friends to me?
And call’d the stars my own ;
I were a wretch undone. 8 Let others stretch their arms like seas, And grasp
in all the shore ; Grant me the visits of thy face,
And I desire no more.
478. The same. (P. M.)
EAREST Jesus, come to me, 1 DE
And abide eternally;
Fill, and make my heart thy home. 2 Oftentimes for thee I sigh,
Nothing else can give me joy;
Dearest Jesus, come to me. 3 Could I clearly see above,
What thy saints possess in love;
4 Son of God, my dearest Lord,
All my crown and my reward :
479. Jesus Christ the only way to God.
He whom I fix my hopes upon ;
till him I view.
The road that leads from banishment,
I'll go, for all his paths are peace.
And mourn'd because I found it not ;
Because I could not cease from sin.
I sinn'd and stumbled but the more;
“ Come hither, soul, I am the way.”
Shalt take me to thee as I am ;
Nothing but love shall I receive.
What a dear Saviour I have found;
“ Behold the way to God !".
The Saviour's Name, (L. M.)
1 ESUS! that sweet, that charming name,
Sets all my languid pow'rs on flame; While virgin-souls, who feel its pow'r,
Cannot but love him and adore,
Of which the brightest seraphs boast;
And consolates the dying saint.
The life of my expiring hope;
In all distress a sure relief.
Makes ev'ry guilty fear subside ;
Midst darkest shades of gloomy night. 5 When I this sweet, this lovely name,
With all that it imports can claim;
My heart o'erflows with joy and peace. 6 No foes nor trouble do I fear,
For Christ, my all in all, is near ;
PRAISE TO CHRIST.
481. Hosanna to Christ. Matt. xxi. 9. (C. M.)
Of David's ancient line,
And offspring is the same;
In our Immanuel's name.
With peaceful news from heav'n;
To Christ the Lord be given. 4 Let mortals ne'er refuse to take
Th' hosanna on their tongues,
Their silence into songs. 482. Christ worshipped by all. Rev. v. 11. (C.M.) 1 COME let us join our cheerful songs
With angels round the throne;
But all their joys are one.
“ To be exalted thus :
For he was slain for us.'
3 Jesus is worthy to receive
Honour and power divine ;
for ever thine.
And air, and earth, and seas,
And speak thine endless praise. 5 The whole creation join in one
To bless the sacred name,
And to adore the Lamb.
Christ's Exaltation. (L. M.)
1 VHAT equal honours shall we bring
To thee, O Lord, our God, the Lamb ? When all the notes that angels sing,
Are far inferior to thy name? 2 Worthy is he that once was slain,
The Prince of Peace, that groan’d and dy'd, Worthy to rise, and live, and reign
At his Almighty Father's side.
Who stood condemn'd at Pilate's bar :
Though he was charg'd with madness here. 4 All riches are his native right,
Yet he sustain'd amazing loss :
