A heavenly priesthood his :
Are all fulfilled, and now withdraw.
Hid from the eyes of men,
Their great High-Priest again :
HYMN 197, C. M. 197
Our great High-Priest.
mf 1 Conoue ascended
He entered heaven, with all our names
Engraven on his breast.
By his atoning blood;
And pleads our cause with God.
The weakness of our frame,
Whom he himself o'ercame.
The fervors of his love;
And intercedes above.
Nor blush to hear his name;
Our lips his praise proclaim.
HYMN 198, C. M.
Breathing after the Holy Spirit.
Holy Spirit, heavenly Dove !
Kindle a flame of sacred love,
In these cold hearts of ours. тр 2 Look-how we grovel here below,
Fond of these trifling toys !
To reach eternal joys.
In vain we strive to rise; > Hosannas languish on our tongues, mp And our devotion dies. P 4 Dear Lord ! and shall we ever live,
At this poor dying rate,
And thine to us so great? mf 5 Come, Holy Spirit, heavenly Dove!
With all thy quickening powers; Come, shed abroad a Saviour's love,
And that shall kindle ours.

And new-create the whole.

And kindle in our breast the flame mf Of never-dying love.

blessed Spirit! source of light, Whose power and grace are unconfined, Dispel the gloomy shades of night,--
The thicker darkness of the mind.

To show the dangers of the way,

The Sight of God and Christ in Heaven,
Stoop down, and take us on thy wings,
The reach of these inferior things;-
Up where eternal ages roll,
And fruits immortal feast the soul.
Of our almighty Father's throne !
Clothed in a body like our own.
