4 He breaks the pow'r of reigning sin,
He sets the pris'ner free ;
His blood avail'd for me.
Shall feel our sins forgiv'n;

1 John v. 6.
To bring us strangers nigh. 2 Nor let our voices cease
To sing the Saviour's name; Jesus, th' Ambassador of peace,
How cheerfully he came! 3 It cost him cries and tears
To bring us near to God;
To make the payment good. 4 My Saviour's pierced side
Pour'd down a double flood; By water we are purify'd,
And pardon'd by the blood. 5 Infinite was our guilt,
But he, our Priest, atones;
And offer'd with his groans. 6 Look up, my soul, to him,
Whose death was thy desert,
And humbly view the living stream,
Flow from his breaking heart. 7 There, on the cursed tree,
In dying pangs he lies;
And all our wants supplies. 8 Thus the Redeemer came,
By water and by blood;
We feel his witness good. 9 While the eternal Three
Their record bear above, Here I believe He dy'd for me,
And seald my Saviour's love. 10 Lord, cleanse my soul from sin,
Nor let thy grace depart; Great Comforter' abide within, And witness to my heart.

U To plead before our Cod;
With his atoning blood.
No burning wrath comes down ; If justice calls for sinner's blood,
The Saviour shows his own. 3 Before his Father's eye
Our humble suit he moves; The Father lays his thunder by
And looks, and smiles, and loves. 4. Now may our joyful tongues
Our Maker's honor sing;
And bears them to the King. 5 We bow before his face,
And sound his glories high ; « Hosanna to the God of grace,
That lays his thunder by.
6 On earth thy mercy reigns,
And triumphs all above ;"
HYMN 340. C. M.
For such a worm as I ?
And bath'd in its own blood, While all expos'd to wrath divine,
The glorious Suff'rer stood. 3 Was it for crimes that I had done,
He groan'd upon the tree? Amazing pity! grace unknown!
And love beyond degree!
And shut his glories in,
For man, the creature's sin.
While his dear cross appears; Dissolve my heart in thankfulness,
And melt my eyes to tears.
The debt of love I owe;
"Tis all that I can do.
