Mighty in redeeming love.
Strike aloud each joyful string :

Redeeming Love. SAVIOUR, source of every blessing,
Tune my heart to grateful lays; Streams of mercy, never ceasing,
Call for ceaseless songs of praise. 2 Teach me some melodious measure,
Sung by raptured saints above;
While I sing redeeming love.
Wandering from the fold of God; Thou, to save my soul from danger,
Didst redeem me with thy blood. 4 By thy hand restored, defended,
Safe through life, thus far, I'm come; Safe, O Lord, when life is ended, Bring me to my heavenly home.

Christ droelling in his People. LOVE divine, all love excelling!
Joy of heaven, to earth come down: Fix us in thy humble dwelling,
All thy faithful mercies crown: Jesus! thou art all compassion,
Pure, unbounded love thou art;
Visit us with thy salvation,
Enter every trembling heart! 2 Come! almighty to deliver,
Let us all thy life receive! Suddenly return—and never,
Never more thy temples leave!
Serve thee as thy hosts above;
Glory in thy precious love.
Christ's unchanging Love the Safety of his people. TO God, the only wise,
Our Saviour, and our King, Let all the saints below the skies
Their humble praises bring. 2 'Tis his almighty love,
His counsel and his care,
And every hurtful snare. 3 He will present our souls,
Unblemished and complete,
With joys divinely great. 4 Then all the chosen seed
Shall meet around the throne;
And make his wonders known. 5 To our Redeemer God,
Wisdom with power belongs,
And everlasting songs.

Godly Sorrow in View of the Sufferings of Christ.
And did my Sovereign die ?
For such a worm as I ?
He groaned upon the tree?
And love beyond degree!
And shut his glories in,
For man, the rebel's sin.
4 Thus might I hide my blushing face,
While his dear cross appears ; Dissolve my heart in thankfulness,
And melt my eyes to tears.
The debt of love I owe:
'Tis all that I

Godly Sorrow in View of the Sufferings of Christ. AND can mine eyes, without a tear,
A weeping Saviour see?
Who groaned—and died—for me? 2 Blest Jesus! let those tears of thine
Subdue each stubborn foe;
And bid my sorrows flow.

Love of Christ celebrated.
Awake the sacred song!
Tune every heart and tongue. 2 His love, what mortal thought can reach!
What mortal tongue display!

Fill every heart and tongue,

“ Ye blessed children, come !"
To our eternal home.
His endless praise proclaiin ;
Of Moses and the Lamb!
To our incarnate Lord !
Adore th' eternal Word.
