Part of his host have cross'd the flood,
And part is crossing now.
This solemn moment fly;
And we expect to die:
With wishful looks we stand,
And reach the heavenly land.
Like theirs, with glory crown'd;
And hear his trumpet sound:
O that the word were given!
And land us all in heaven!
HYMN 334. C. M. D.
THE Frowd, the poor unthinking crowd,
They will not turn to thee.
They all thy signs despise,
The anger of the skies.
In wickedness excel,
And sport and dance to hell.
Their pleasures they require,
To everlasting fire.
The praying remnant spare,
And see the coming snare:
A merciful distinction make,
And strongly save thine own.
To swallow up its prey ;
In that vindictive day:
We shall not then remove;
HYMN 355. C. M. HOW extensive is thy grace, 10
How rich, how full, how free!
I'll tell my wants to thee.
I want to love the more,
Which I have felt before.
To hear what Jesus saith;
I want a stronger faith.
Submissive to thy will;
I want my wants to feel.
Thy gracious ear incline;
This empty soul of mine.
He bought them with his blood:
HYMN 356. L. M. 10
LET Jehovah's liberal hand
Be own'd and sung through all the land ! "Tis he that sends a plenteous storo, llis naine let every soul adoro.
2 Let undeserved goodness raise
Our admiration and our praise;
Unworthy of the smallest share. 3 But how does mercy yet abound!
How is the year with plenty crown'di
Is wisely urder'd from on high.
From God receive fertility.
On what thy bounteous hand imparts,
HYMN 357. S. M.
To leave thy burden here? 3 Is Jesus full of grace ?
Then why dost thou complain?
His favour to obtain ?
Go mourning all thy days?
And fill my mouth with praise. 4 Revive my fainting heart
With thy forgiving love ;
HYMN 358. C. M. 'LET worldly minds the world pursue Once I admir'd its trifles too,
But grace has set me free. 3 Its pleasures now no longer pleaso,
No more content afford;
Far from my heart be joys like these,
Now I have known the Lord. 3 As by the light of op'ning day,
The stars are all conceal'd;
When Jesus is revealed.
I bid them all depart : ! His name, and love, and gracious voice
Have fix'd my roving heart.
And wholly live to thee;
A worthless worm like me!
HYMN 353. P. M.
Love the soul ihyself hast made,
Let me still on thee be stay'd :
Saviour, wilt thou not secure,
Till I, as my God, am pure ? 2 But it is thy gracious pleasure,
To redeem me from all sin;
Till thou bring thy kingdom in.
Till thy perfect grace I prove;
Filld with all the life cf love. 3 Hear in this accepted hour,
Speak and bid the sun stand still;
Over my own carnal will:
Let my bosom-sin give place:
Nature yield to sovereign grace.
HYMN 360. P. M.
The vows he hath vow'd to the Lord !
Ilow can I be true to my word!
But look for my help from above,
The virtue of Jesus's love.
My promises empty as air,
And plunge in eternal despair-
The sense of his goodness impart,
That love of himself in my heart.
HYMN 361. P. M.
To me thy affectionate grace;
Afford mc a glimpse of thy face :
A flame of reciprocal love,
And then I shall never remcve. 2 O come to a mourner in pain,
Thy peace to my conscience reveal,
And sing of the goodness I feel;
My soul shull in all things obey,
HYMN 362. P. M.
The ravens that call on thee for their food Them ready to perish, thou lov'st to sustain, And wilt thou not cherish the children of men ?
