Our danger, and our refuge too. mf 3 Thy power and glory work within,

And break the chains of reigning sin,
Do our imperious lusts subdue,

And form our wretched hearts anew.

4 The troubled conscience knows thy voice, mf

Thy cheering words awake our joys;
Thy words allay the stormy wind,

And calm the surges of the mind. 219

Prayer for the promised Spirit.

ANTHRONED on high, almighty Lord !

The Holy Ghost send down:
Fulfill in us thy faithful word,

And all thy mercies crown.
2 Though, on our heads, no tongues of fire

Their wondrous powers impart,
Grant, Saviour! what we more desire,

Thy Spirit in our heart.
3 Spirit of life, and light, and love!

Thy heavenly influence give;
Quicken our souls—born from above,

In Christ that we may live.
4 To our benighted minds reveal

The glories of his grace,
And bring us, where no clouds conceal

The brightness of his face.
5 His love within us shed abroad,
mf Life's ever-springing well, -

Till God in us, and we in God, mf In love eternal dwell.

HYMN 220, C. M. 220

Regeneration by the Spirit.
1 Nor"files that God has given,

all the outward forms on earth,
Nor will of man, nor blood, nor birth,

Can raise a soul to heaven.
9 The sovereign will of God alone

Creates us heirs of grace.


Born in the image of his Son,

A new peculiar race.
8 The Spirit, like some heavenly wind,

Breathes on the sons of flesh;
Creates anew the carnal mind,

And forms the man afresh. mf 4 Our quickened souls awake, and rise,

From the long sleep of death ;
On heavenly things we fix our eyes,

And praise employs our breath.

And took their flight,-
Hear us, we humbly pray,
And, where the gospel's day
Sheds not its glorious ray,

" Let there be light!”

On thy redeeming wing,

Healing and sight-
Health to the sick in mind,
Sight to the inly blind,-
