3 By faith we know thee strong to save,
(Save us, a present Saviour thou!)
Future and past subsisting now.
Eternal life with thee is given,
Pardon, and holiness, and heaven.
Unseen by reason's glimm'ring ray,
Their heavenly origin display.
The clouds disperse, the shadows fly, The Invisible appears in sight, And God is seen by mortal eye.
HYMN 131. S. M. 
His sins on earth forgiven ?
My name inscribed in heaven? 2 What we have felt and seen,
With confidence we tell ;
The signs infallible.
That he for us hath died,
And feel his blood applied. 4 Exults our rising soul,
Disburthen'd of her load, And swells unutterably full
Of glory and of God. 5 His love surpassing far The love of all beneath,
We find within our hearts, and dare
The pointless darts of death. 6 Stronger than death or hell,
The sacred power we prove; And conqu’rors of the world, we dwell
In heaven, who dwell in love.
HYMN 132. S. M.  WE by his Spirit prove,
And know the things of God, The things which freely of his love
He hath on us bestow'd. 2 His Spir't to us he gave,
And dwells in us we know; The witness in ourselves we have,
And all its fruits we show. 3 The meek and lowly heart
That in our Saviour was, To us his Spirit does impart,
And signs us with his cross. 4 Our nature's turn'd, our mind
Transform'd in all its powers; And both the witnesses are join'd,
The Spirit of God with ours. 5 Whate'er our pard’ning Lord
Commands, we gladly do ; And guided by his sacred word, We all his steps pursue.
HYMN 133. C. P. M. THOU great mysterious God unknown, Whose love hath gently led me on,
F'en from my insant days; Mine inmost soul expose to view, And tell me if I ever knew
Thy justifying grace.
2 If I had only known thy fear,
Thy drawings from above;
Thy sweet forgiving love.
The sense of sin forgiven :
That antepast of heaven.
In Jesus reconcil'd ?
And know myself thy child?
How merciful thou art:
HYMN 134. H. M. 
Shake off thy guilty fears,
In my behalf appears;
For me to intercede;
His precious blood to plead;
His blood aton'd for all our race, And sprinkles now the throne of grace. 3 Five bleeding wounds he bears,
Receiv'd on Calvary; They pour effectual prayers,
They strongly speak for me; Forgive him, O, forgive, they cry, Nor let that ransom'd sinner die! 4 The Father hears bim pray,
His dear anointed One:
The presence of his Son:
His pard’ning voice I hear:
I can no longer fear;
HYMN 135. C. M. GREAT God! to me the sight afford,
To him of old allow'd;
Descending in a cloud! 2 In that revealing Spir't come down,
Thine attributes proclaim,
The glories of thy name.
Who gav'st my soul to be! Fountain of being, and of power,
And great in majesty.
4 The Lord, the mighty God thou art,
But let me rather prove,
That fav'rite name of Love.
In this polluted breast;
And suits the sinner best.
Our sin implores thy grace;
HYMN 136. C. M.
The sin-subduing power ;
And never grieve thee more.
The liberty from sin;
The kingdom fixt within.
Thou seest my heart's desire; Made ready in thy powerful day,
Thy fulness I require.
Impatient to be freed!
'Till I am sav'd indeed.
Art thou not willing too,
To conquer and renew?
