C. M.

Tin Thee I put my trust,

HOU art my hiding-place, O Lord!

Encouraged by Thy holy word-
A feeble child of dust.

2 I have no argument beside,
I urge no other plea;

And 't is enough the Saviour died,
The Saviour died for me!

3 When storms of fierce temptation beat,
And furious foes assail,

My refuge is the mercy-seat,

My hope within the vail.

4 And when Thine awful voice commands This body to decay,

And life, in its last lingering sands,

Is ebbing fast away;

5 Then, though it be in accents weak, My voice shall call on Thee,

And ask for strength in death to speak, "My Saviour died for me."

142 (157).


ARISE, my soul, arise,

A Shake off thy guilty fears,

The bleeding Sacrifice

In my behalf appears;

Before the throne my Surety stands,
My name is written on His hands.

2 He ever lives above,

For me to intercede;

H. M

His all-redeeming love,

His precious blood to plead;
His blood atoned for all our race,
And sprinkles now the throne of grace.

3 Five bleeding wounds He bears,
Received on Calvary;
They pour effectual prayers,
They strongly speak for me;
Forgive him, oh, forgive, they cry,
Nor let that ransom'd sinner die.
4 The Father hears Him pray,
His dear anointed One;

He cannot turn away,

Cannot refuse His Son;

His Spirit answers to the blood,
And tells me I am born of God.

5 My God is reconciled,

His pard'ning voice I hear:
He owns me for His child,
I can no longer fear;

With confidence I now draw nigh,
And, "Father, Abba Father!" cry.

143 (789).

E lives, the great Redeemer lives,

L. M.

H What joy the blest assurance gives!

And now, before His Father, God,
Pleads the full merit of His blood.

2 Repeated crimes awake our fears,
And justice arm'd with frowns appears;
But in the Saviour's lovely face
Sweet mercy smiles, and all is peace.

3 Hence, then, ye black, despairing thoughts!
Above our fears, above our faults,
His powerful intercessions rise,
And guilt recedes and terror dies.
4 In ev'ry dark, distressful hour,
When sin and Satan join their power,
Let this dear hope repel the dart,
That Jesus bears us on His heart.
5 Great Advocate, Almighty Friend
On Him our humble hopes depend:
Our cause can never, never fail,
For Jesus pleads, and must prevail.


JESUS, my great High Priest,

Offer'd His blood and died;

My guilty conscience seeks
No sacrifice beside.

His powerful blood did once atone,
And now it pleads before the throne.

2 To this dear Surety's hand

Will I commit my cause;

He answers and fulfils

His Father's broken laws.
Behold my soul at freedom set;
My Surety paid the dreadful debt.

3 My Advocate appears

For my defence on high;
The Father bows His ears,

And lays His thunder by.

Not all that hell or sin can say,

Shall turn His heart, His love away.

H M.

4 Should all the hosts of death,
And powers of hell unknown,
Put their most dreadful forms
Of rage and mischief on,

I shall be safe, for Christ displays
Superior power and guardian grace.


[ocr errors]

H' atoning work is done,
The Victim's blood is shed,
And Jesus now is gone

His people's cause to plead :

H. M.

He stands in heaven their great High Priest,
And bears their names upon His breast.

2 No temple made with hands

His place of service is;
In heaven itself He stands,

A heavenly priesthood His:
In Him the shadows of the law
Are all fulfill'd, and now withdraw.
3 And though awhile He be

Hid from the eyes of men,

His people look to see

Their great High Priest again:
In brightest glory He will come,
And take His waiting people home.


8s & 6s.
THOU, the contrite sinner's Friend!
Who, loving, lov'st them to the end,
On this alone my hopes depend,
That Thou wilt plead for me.

2 When weary in the Christian race,
Far off appears my resting-place,

And, fainting, I mistrust Thy grace,
Then, Saviour, plead for me.

3 When I have err'd and gone astray,
Afar from Thine and wisdom's way,
And see no glimmering, guiding ray,
Still, Saviour, plead for me.

4 When Satan, by my sins made bold,
Strives from Thy cross to loose my hold,
Then with Thy pitying arms enfold,
And plead, oh, plead for me!

5 And when my dying hour draws near,
Darken'd with anguish, guilt and fear,
Then to my fainting sight appear,
Pleading in heaven for me.

6 When the full light of heavenly day
Reveals my sins in dread array,

Say Thou hast wash'd them all away;
Oh, say Thou plead'st for me!


ESUS, my Advocate above,

L. M

of love,

If now for me prevails Thy prayer,
If now I find Thee pleading there,
2 If Thou the secret wish convey,
And sweetly prompt my heart to pray,
Hear, and my weak petitions join,
Almighty Advocate, to Thine.

3 Jesus, my heart's desire obtain;
My earnest suit present, and gain:
My fulness of corruption show;
The knowledge of myself bestow.
