And dying, clasp thee in my arms,
The antidote of death. :

Faith Reviving.

FROM whence this fear and unbelief?
Haft thou, O Father, put to grief
Thy fpotlefs Son for me?
And will the righteous judge of men,
Condemn me for that debt of fin,
Which, Lord, was charg'd on thee?
2 Complete atonement thou haft made,
And to the utmost farthing paid
Whate'er thy people ow'd;

How then can wrath on me take place
If fhelter'd in thy righteoufnefs,
And fprinkled with thy blood?

[ocr errors]

3 If thou haft my difcharge procur'd,
And freely in my room endur'd
The whole of wrath divine;
Payment, God cannot twice demand,
Firft, at my bleeding furety's hand,
And then again at mine.

4 Turn then, my foul, unto thy rest;
The merits of thy great High Prieft
Speak peace and liberty;
Truft in his efficacious blood;
Nor fear thy banifhment from God,
Since Jefus di'd for thee.

Prayer, for all Missionaries.


REAT God, the nations of the earth Are by creation thine; And in thy works by all beheld, Thy radiant glories fhine.

2 But, Lord, thy greater love has fent
Thy gofpel to mankind,

Unveiling what rich stores of grace
Are treasur'd in thy mind.

3 Lord, when fhall thefe glad tidings spread The fpacious earth around? 'Till ev'ry tribe and ev'ry foul Shall hear the joyful found:


O when fhall Afric's fable fons
Enjoy the heav'nly word?
And vaffals long enflav'd become
The freemen of the Lord?

5 When shall th' untutor'd heathen tribes, A dark bewilder'd race,

Sit down at our Immanuel's feet,
And learn and feel his grace?

[ocr errors]

6 Smile, Lord, on each divine attempt,
To fpread the gofpel's rays;

And build on fin's demolish'd throne
The temples of thy praise !


Prayer, for the Jews.
ESSIAH, full of grace,
Redeem'd by thee, we plead


The promife made to Abram's race,
To fouls for ages dead.

2 Their bones as quite dri'd up,
Throughout the vale appear;

Cut off and loft, their last faint hope
To fee thy kingdom here.

3 Open their graves, and bring The outcafts forth, to own

4 To fave the race forlorn,
Thy glorious arm difplay:
And Thew the world a nation born,
A nation in a day!



Thou art their Lord, their God, and King,
Their true anointed one.

C. M.
Prayer, for the whole World.


'ATHER, is not thy promife pledg'd
To thine exalted Sun,

[RIPPON'S coll.


That through the nations of the earth
Thy word of life shall run?

"Afk, and I give the heathen lands
For thine inheritance,

And to the world's remotest shores
Thine empire fhall advance."

3 Haft thou not faid, the blinded Jews
Shall their Redeemer own?
While Gentiles to his ftandard croud,
And bow before his throne?

4 Are not all kingdoms, tribes, and tongues, Under the expanfe of heav'n,

To the dominion of thy Son,
Without exemption giv'n?


From Eaft to Weft, from north to fouth,
Then be his name ador'd!
Europe, with all her millions, shout
Hofannahs to the Lord!

6 Afia and Africa, refound
From fhore to fhore his fame;
And thou, America, in fongs,
Redeeming love proclaim!

HYMN CLXVI. P. M. [JOHN MURRAY.] At the opening of Worship.

1 FATHER, behold us here, According to thy word;

To worship without fear,
Our dear redeeming Lord;
O may thy light and truth now shine,
To warm each heart with love divine!

2 Drawn, wholly drawn, by thee,
To Jefus we are come,
And by thy teaching, we
Perceive our work is done ;
Through which a title we obtain

As Kings and Priefts, with thee, to reign.



We bless thee, God of
For life and glory giv'n,
To us and all the race,
Call'd up from earth to heav'n;

Haften great God, the day of love,
When ev'ry foul this grace fhall prove.

Before Prayer.


I DEAR Shepherd, fee thy flock here met, Before thy pierced feet to bow;

To praife thy wounds, thy blood and fweat, Thro' which eternal love did flow. 2 Great mercies thou to us haft fhewn,

Since first we knew that we were thine:
Since first thou mark'd us for thy own,
With grace and righteousness divine.
3 Seal'd for thine own, we furely are;
Thy fpirit, Lord, our witnefs is:
Nor can we fall from Jefus far,
For he is love and tenderness.

4 There's none can pluck us from his hand,
Inclos'd by grace on ev'ry fide;
His oath, his promife firmly ftand,
We ever fhall with him abide !

5 He never will himself deny ;

Nor could he die for man in vain ;
How then hall God in wrath destroy,
The fouls for whom the Lamb was flain.

6 The countless price he paid for us,
Exempts us from the iron rod :

His life, his death, his blood and cross,
Hath reconcil'd us all to God.



Before Sermon.


OME worship at Immanuel's feet,
See in his face what wonders meet!
