89, 7s & 4.
Close of a Protracted Meeting.
We shall see their joys no more;
We shall see their joys no more. 2 Oft the tidings of salvation
Have been pressed upon our ears;
3 Sinner, o'er thy hardness weeping,
Till salvation he bestow.
4 Thoughtless ones, while ye, departing,
See the final parting day.
5 While the contrite, while the lowly,
Must depart to endless wo.
CONVICTION AND CONFESSION.
LORD, how secure my conscience was,
I was alive without the law,
2 My hopes of heaven were firm and bright; But since the precept came,
With such convincing power and light,
3 My guilt appeared but small before,
4 Then felt my soul the heavy load-
I had provoked a dreadful God,
5 My God! I cry with every breath,
MY former hopes are fled,
2 Ah, whither shall I fly?
The law proclaims destruction nigh, And vengeance at the door. 3 When I review my ways, I dread impending doom; But sure a friendly whisper says, "Flee from the wrath to come."
4 I see or think I see,
5 Forerunner of the sun,
It marks the pilgrim's way;
AMID displays of wrath and love,
2 With what a base contempt we treat Thy threatenings and thy promises! Duty neglect and mercy slight,
Nor fear to sin-nor seek to please. 3 Could angels weep-for us they'd mourn: Break, then, these flinty hearts, O God! Sure we must melt beneath thy grace, Or feel the terrors of thy rod.
In folly, from thy paths have turned,
2 Sins of omission, and of act,
3 Oh spare us, Lord!-in mercy spare!
4s & 6s.
The convicted Sinner urged to submit.
To call upon the Lord;
2 While converts sing,
At Jesus' feet,
And own your sovereign Lord.
3 Now is the time
Who died that you might live:
4 O sovereign Lord,
And make the wounded whole.
Coldness and Inconstancy lamented. DEAR Jesus-when-when shall it be, That I no more shall break with thee? When will this war of passion cease, And I enjoy a lasting peace? 2 Here I repent and sin again;
Sometimes revive-sometimes am slainSlain with the same malignant dart, Which, oh! too often wounds thy heart. 3 When, gracious Lord-when shall it be, That I shall find my all in theeThe fulness of thy promise prove, And feast on thine eternal love? 8s & 6s.
Prayer for pardoning Mercy.
Thy righteousness, thy bleeding love,
