2 Exert Thy gracious power divine,
CONFIDING in Thy truth alone,
Here, on the steps of Jesus' throne, We lay the treasure Thou hast given, To be received and rear'd for heaven. 2 Lent to us for a season, we Lend him forever, Lord, to Thee, Assured that if to Thee he live, We gain in what we seem to give. 3 Large and abundant blessings shed, Warm as these prayers, upon his head; And on his soul the dews of grace, Fresh as these drops upon his face. 4 Make him and keep him Thine own child, Meek follower of the Undefiled; Possessor here of grace and love, Inheritor of heaven above.
THE LORD'S SUPPER.
ACCORDING to Thy gracious word
This will I do, my dying Lord,
2 Thy body, broken for my sake,
3 Gethsemane can I forget?
4 When to the cross I turn mine eyes,
O Lamb of God, my Sacrifice!
I must remember Thee: —
5 Remember Thee and all Thy pains,
Yea, while a breath, a pulse remains,
6 And when these failing lips grow dumb, And mind and mem'ry flee,
When Thou shalt in Thy kingdom come,
"WAS on that dreadful, doleful night,
Against the Son of God's delight,
2 Before the mournful scene began,
He took the bread, and bless'd, and brake; What love through all His actions ran! What wondrous words of grace He spake!
3 "This is my body, broke for sin;
Receive and eat the living food:
Then took the cup and bless'd the wine: "T is the new cov'nant in my blood."
4 "Do this," He cried, "till time shall end,
AT, drink, in mem'ry of your Friend,"
Who all the
pangs of death endured,
2 Yes, we'll record Thy matchless grace,
3 'Tis pleasure
more than earth can give,
Thy goodness through these veils to see: Thy table food celestial yields;
And happy they who sit with Thee. 4 But oh, what vast, transporting joys
When, join'd with yon celestial train,
our breasts, our tongues inspire,
ERE at Thy table, Lord, we meet
Thy body is the bread we eat,
2 He that
prepares this rich repast,
3 Sure, there was never love so free,
Well Thou may'st claim that heart of me,
4 Yes, Thou shalt surely have my heart,
JESUS, Master of the Feast,
itself Thou art:
Now receive Thy ev'ry guest,
7s & 63
Manna that from heaven comes down;
See us waiting at Thy feet,
2 In this earthly wilderness
8s & Ge
ORD, when before Thy throne we meet,
L Thy goodness to adore,
From heaven, th' eternal mercy-seat,
And make our inmost souls to be
2 The body for our ransom given, The blood in mercy shedWith this immortal food from heaven, Lord, let our souls be fed; And as we at Thy board appear 3 Be Thou, O Holy Spirit, nigh! Grant us Thy quick'ning grace to share. Accept the humble prayer, The contrite soul's repentant sigh,
The sinner's heartfelt tear;
ESUS, Thou Joy of loving hearts!
Thou Fount of Life, Thou Light of men!
2 Thy truth unchanged hath ever stood;
Where'er our changeful lot is cast;
5 O Jesus, ever with us stay!
Make all our moments calm and bright; Chase the dark night of sin away,
Shed o'er the world Thy holy light!
