6 Self-interest, Lord, shall fail,
Man's haughtiness sink low;
We at thy footstool bow:
Friend. Prov. xvij. 17; xviii. 24. Cant. v. 16. 1 POOR, weak, and worthless though I am,
I have a rich Almighty Friend; Jesus, the Saviour, is his name,
He freely loves, and without end. 2 He ransom'd me from hell with blood,
And by his power my foes controllid; He found me wand'ring far from God,
And brought me to his chosen fold. 3 He cheers my heart, my wants supplies,
And says that I shall shortly be Enthron’d with him above the skies;
0! what a friend is Christ to me.
30. C. M. Fountain opened. Zec. xiii. 1. Psa. xxxvi. 9. Isa. xli. 18. 1 THERE is a fountain fill'd with blood,
Drawn from Immanuel's veins;
Lose all their guilty stains.
That fountain in his day;
O may I there, though vile as he,
Wash all my sins away! 3 Dear, dying Lamb, thy precious blood
Shall never lose its power,
Be say'd, to sin no more.
Thy flowing wounds supply,
And shall be till I die. 5 But when this lisping, stammering tongue Lies silent in the
I'll sing thy power to save.
Majestic as the sun;
It gives, but borrows none.
The gracious light and heat;
They rise, but never set.
For such a bright display,
With beams of heavenly day.
The paths of truth and love ;
Till glory break upon our view
In brighter worlds above.
32. L. M. Increase of the Church. Isa. ii. 2. Hab. ii. 14. Mic. iv. ha
1 SHOUT! for the blessed Jesus reigns ;
Through distant lands his triumphs spread :
Own him their Saviour and their Head. 2 His sons and daughters from afar,
Daily at Zion's gate arrive;
By sovereign grace are made alive. 3 Oppressors now beneath his feet,
O'ercome by his victorious power;
And proud blasphemers learn t'adore. 4 Gentiles and Jews his laws obey,
Nations remote their offerings bring,
To their exalted God and King. 5 Loud hallelujahs to the Lamb,
From all below and all above;
33. L. M.
Does his successive journies run;
3 For Him shall endless prayer be made,
And praises throng to crown his head;
With every morning sacrifice.
Dwell on his love with sweetest song;
Their early blessings on his name.
The pris’ner leaps to loose his chains;
And all the sons of want are blest.
Death and the curse are known no more;
More blessings than their father lost. 7 Let every creature rise and bring
Peculiar honours to their King;
34. H. M. Kingdom of Christ. Dan. ii. 44. Psa. xxii. 27; lxvii. 3, 4. 1 ALL hail, redeeming Lord!
The wondrous things foretold
With joy our eyes behold:
Its silver honours pays;
And every age their tribute bring,
That happy, glorious day,
Shall own thy gentle sway!
Eternal be thy reign;
To wear thy gentle chain :
35. S. M. Christ the Branch of David, and the Morning Star. 1 ALL hail, mysterious King !
Hail David's ancient root; Thou righteous Branch, which thence did spring
To give the nations fruit. 2 Our weary
souls shall rest Beneath thy grateful shade; Our thirsting lips the sweets shall taste,
By thy bless'd fruit convey'd. 3 Fair morning star, arise !
With living glories bright;
A food of sacred light. 4 The horrid gloom is fled,
Pierc'd by thy heavenly ray;
To everlasting day.
