2 0 that we all inight now begin
Our foolisliness to mourn ; And turn at once from every sin,
And to our Saviour turn ! 3 Give us ourselves and thee to know
In this our gracious day; Repentance unto life bestow,
And take our sins away.
And then enrich the poor;
The knowledge of our cure.
And then remove the load;
HYMN 124. L. M. 
When 'gainst it first I turned my face; Nor knew
my want of power within, Nor knew the omnipotence of grace. 2 In nature's strength I sought in vain
For what my God refused to give; I could not then the mastery gain,
Or lord of all my passions live. 3 But, for the glory of thy name,
Vouchsafe me now the victory; Weakness itself thou know'st I am,
And cannot share the praise with thee. 4 Because I now can nothing do,
Jesus, do all the work alone; And bring my soul triumphant through,
To wave its palm before thy throne.
HYMN 125. L. M.  O THOU that hangest on the tree,
Our curse and sufferings to remove, Pity the souls that look to thee,
And save us by thy dying love. 2 We have no outward righteousness,
No merits or good works to plead; We only can be sav'd by grace;
Thy grace will here be free indeed. 3 Save us by grace, through faith alone,
A faith thou must thyself impart; A faith that would by works be shown,
A faith that purifies the heart. 4 A faith that doth the mountains move,
A faith that shows our sins forgiven, A faith that sweetly works by love,
And ascertains our claims to heaven.
HYMN 126. L. M.  CANST thou reject our dying prayer,
Or cast us out who come to thee? Our sins, ah! wherefore didst thou bear?
Jesus, remember Calvary! 2 Number'd with the transgressors thou,
Between the felons crucified, Speak to our hearts and tell us now,
Wherefore hast thou for sinners died ? 3 For us wast thou not lifted up?
For us a bleeding victim made? That we, the abjects, we might hope,
Thou hast for all a ransom paid. 4 Oh, might we with believing eyes,
Thee in thy bloody vesture see;
And cast us on thy sacrifice!
HYMN 127. L. M.
HYMN 128. C. M.
Till thou thyself declare,
Regard a sinner's prayer!
Unpurged, and unforgiven:
As far as hell from heaven. 2 An unregenerate child of man,
To thee for faith I call;
Pity thy fallen creature's pain,
And raise me from my fall.
Thou only canst remove;
Thy deity of love.
That grace may let me go;
I wait the truth to know.
Thou wilt thy light afford :
The prisoner of the Lord.
I hate the tyrant's chain;
Nor let me cry in vain !
The covenant blood apply,
HYMN 129. 78.
Let me to thy bosom fly, While the nearer waters roll,
While the tempest still is high, Hide me, O my Saviour, hide,
Till the storm of life is past; Safe into the haven guide,
O receive my soul at last. 2 Other refuge have I none, ,
Hangs my helpless soul on thee; Leave, ah ! leave me not alone;
Still support and comfort me!
All my trust on thee is stayed,
All my help from thee I bring; Cover my defenceless head
With the shadow of thy wing. 3 Thou, O Christ, art all I want;
More than all in thee I find; Raise the fallen, cheer the faint,
Heal the sick, and lead the blind. Just and holy is thy name;
I am all unrighteousness; False, and full of sin I am,
Thou art full of truth and grace.
Grace to cover all my sin;
Make and keep me pure within :
Freely let me take of thee; Spring thou up within my heart, • Rise to all eternity.
JUSTIFICATION BY FAITH.
HYMN 130. L. M. AUTHOR of faith, eternal Word,
Whose Spirit breathes the active flame, Faith, like its finisher and Lord,
To-day as yesterday the same. 2 To thee our humble hearts aspire,
And ask the gift unspeakable; Increase in us the kindled fire,
In us the work of faith fulfil.
