Partakers of the Saviour's grace,

The same in mind and heart;
Nor joy, nor grief, nor time, nor place,

Nor life, nor death shall part,

8 O let us haften to the day,

Which shall our flesh restore, When death shall all be done away,

And bodies part no more.

CXXXVIII TheChriftian's Portion

[ocr errors]

row great the christian's portion is !

What endless joys, what worlds of bliss, The Lord for them prepares ! Their boundless treasures who can know? For all above, and all below,

And GOD in CHRIST, is theirs.

2 There's nothing round the heav'nly throne,
But what the saints may call their own,

And at their pleasure ufe;
The angels who excel in praise,
Attend and guard them in their ways,

Lest they their feet should bruise.

3 The hand of God fupplies their wants,
And supersedes their deep complaints,

With mercies still renew'd :
Tho' they are hurry'd up and down,
And thro’a fea of troubles run,

Yet all things work for good.

4 Jefus,

4 Jejus, and all in him is theirs :
They are adopted fons and heirs

Of God, thro' grace divine :
Jesus has wash'd them in his blood,
And with his grace, their souls endow'd :

They in his image shine.

5 Why talk we now of earthly things,
The wealth of empires, crowns of kings ?

Or aught below the skies?
Can crowns or soeptres be compar'd
With that exceeding great reward,
On which we fix our eyes

?

6 God is our own, the God of love, And endless stores in heav'n above ;

What can we covet more? Poffefs'a of this, what can we want? Away all carnal discontent !

We have an endless store.

CXXXIX. Jesus admired by his

Saints.
RETHREN, what is your desires ?

After what do you afpire ?
Where do all your labours tend?

To proclaim the finner's friend ?

'

2 Jesus, full of truth and grace :

Jesus, author of our peace :

Who

Who has bought us with the price
Of his bloody facrifice :

3 Jesus' love is ever new,

Who can give him praises due ?
Gladly shall our tongues proclaim
Jesus' lovely, glorious name.

4 Here alone our hopes are built:

He alone has borne our guilt :
He alone our debt hath paid :
He hath suffer'd in our stead.

' A

RISE, my soul, my joyful pow'rs,

And triumph in my God :
Awake, my voice, and loud proclaim

His glorious grace abroad.

2 He rais'd me from the deeps of fin,

The gates of gaping hell;

And

And fix'd my standing more focure

That 'twas before I fell.

3 The arms of everlasting love,

Beneath my soul he plac'd ; And on the rock of

ages

fet My flipp'ry tootsteps faft.

4
The city of my

bleft abode; Is wall'd around with grace : Salvation for a bulwark stands,

To shield the sacred place.

5 Satan may vent his sharpest (pite,

And all his legions roar s Almighty mercy guards my life,

And bounds his raging pow'r.

6 Arife, my foul, awake, my voice,

And tunes of pleasure fing: Loud Hallelujah Thall address

My Saviour and my king.

CXLI.

Wondrous Grace.

[ocr errors]

Ow shall I praise that love divine,

Which manifest in Jefus is ? Who bore my curse and all my fin,

To bring me to eternal bliss ;

2 I was a traytor doom'd to fire,

Bound to sustain eternal chains :

He

He flew on wings of strong defire,

Affum'd my guilt, and took my chains.

3 Infinite grace ! almighty charms !

Stand in amaze ye earth and skies : Jefus my God, with naked arms,

Hangs on a cross, for me, and dies !

4 Did pity ever stoop fo tow,

Dreft in divinity and blood ? Were ever rebels courted fo,

In groans of an expiring God?

5 And now he lives and spreads his hands, Those hands that did such smart sustain

; And now my advocate he stands,

Pleading his wounds, his death, and pain.

.

6 Glory to thee, eternal king,

By all the sons of men be giv'n
Thy grace, thy matchless grace we fing,

While angels found thy praise in heav'n.

WAKE, my soul, and praise my God

Let all within me shout aloud
Of his victorious grace :
He freely pardons all my fin,
Relieves my wants, and makes me clean.
And heals my fore disease.
