JUSTIFICATION BY FAITH.
6 Thou canst, thou wilt, I dare believe,
So arm me with thy power,
HYMN 137. C. P. M.
On thee whom we have slain;
Renew'd thy sacred pain.
To know thee who thou art,
And break my stubborn heart. 3 Lover of souls to rescue mine, Reveal the charity divine,
That suffer'd in my stead! That made thy soul a sacrifice, And quench'd in death those flaming eyes,
And bow'd that sacred head. 4 The veil of unbelief remove, And by thy manifested love,
And by thy sprinkled blood,
And bring me back to God.
Its God to glorify!
And with my Saviour die.
HYMN 138. L. M.  HERE at thy cross, my Saviour-God,
I lay my soul beneath thy love! O wash me, Jesus, in thy blood,
And fit me for a throne above! 2 Should worlds conspire to drive me hence,
Moveless and firm this heart should lie; Resolved, for that's my last defence,
If I must perish, here to die. 3 But speak, my Lord, and calm my fear;
Am I not safe beneath thy shade? Thy vengeance will not strike me here,
Nor Satan dare my soul invade. 4 I'm safe, and nought my soul shall harm;
Thy blood shall cleanse my guilt away; Thy voice each rising fear shall calm, And guide me up to realms of day!
HYMN 139. C. M.  I WAITED patient for the Lord,
He bowed to hear my cry; He saw me resting on his word,
And brought salvation nigh. 2 He rais'd me from a horrid pit,
Where, mourning long I lay; And from my bonds releas'd my feet,
Deep bonds of miry clay. 3 Firm on a rock he made me stand,
And taught my cheerful tongue, To praise the wonders of his hand,
In a new thankful song, 4 I'll spread his works of grace abroad,
The saints with joy shall hear; And sinners learn to make my God,
Their only hope and fear.
JUSTIFICATION BY FAITH.
HYMN 140. L. M. 
We walk thro’ deserts dark as night;
Faith is our guide—and faith our light.
She makes the pearly gates appear;
And brings eternal glories near.
While faith inspires a heavenly ray,
HYMN 141. C. M. 
Of things beyond our sight;
And dwells in heavenly light.
Brings distant prospects home,
Or thousand years to come.
By God's almighty word;
And be again restored.
From his own country driven;
HYMN 142. S. M. 
Where'er it is bestowed ;
And is the gift of God.
2 Jesus it owns as King,
And all-atoning Priest ;
But looks for all in Christ. 3 To him it leads the soul,
When filled with deep distress; Flies to the fountain of his blood,
And trusts his righteousness. 4 Since 'tis thy work alone,
And that divinely free,
HYMN 143. C. M. 
And make their empty boast Of inward joys and sins forgiven,
While they are slaves to lust! 2 Vain are our fancy's airy flights,
If faith be cold and dead; None but a living power unites
To Christ, the living head; 3 "Tis faith that purifies the heart;
"Tis faith that works by love; That bids all sinful joys depart,
And lifts the thoughts above.
By its celestial power;
In death's approaching hour.
PRAYER AND INTERCESSION.
HYMN 144 L P. M. 
Whom still I hold, but cannot see!
And I am left alone with thee:
My sin and misery declare;
Look on thy hands and read it there:
I never will unloose my hold;
The secret of thy love unfold:
And murinur to contend so long:
When I am weak then I am strong
But consident in self-despair;
Be conquer'd by my instant prayer:
