5 When I hear the pleasing sound
Of weeping mourners just converted, The dead 's alive, the lost is found;
The Lord hath healed the broken hearted. My heart exults, my spirits glow, I love my Lord and brethren so : Oh, had I wings like Noah's dove, I soon would sing with those above.
Glory, honour, and salvation,
What I feel is past expression. 6 Why should I regard the frowns
of those who mock, deride, or slight ine, Soon I'll Me beneath the ground,
Beyond the reach of those who hate me: Sorrows, toils, and sufferings o'er, When once we reach that happy shore; There, with the shining hosts above, I'll sing and shout redeeming love.
Blessings there, beyond expression,
Ever roll in sweet succession. 7 Sinners, you may laugh and scorn;
Your inoments lost will be lamented; The awful day is hastening on,
When you will wish you had repented; Death in its embraces cold, Will soon your mortal bodies hold; Then all your pleasures take their flight, And down you'll sink to endless night; While you 're of that guilty number,
Your destruction doth not slumber. 8 Fellow sinner, go with me;
My heart's enlarged to receive you;
Come to Jesus; he'll relieve you:
Darkness, torment, pain and sorrow,
May be yours before to-inorrow'. 9 Mourner, see your Saviour stand,
With arms expanding to receive you;
He spreads for you his bleeding hands,
Venture on him, he'll relieve you;
L'on't distrust your blessed Saviour;
HYMN 69. C. M. D.
The joyful news I'll tell;
To save our souls from hell;
To shepherds in the field,
Salvation to our King ;
His glorious praises sing. 2 Come, all ye poor despised souls,
Unto his fold repair;
And erys he'll meet us there.
With songs of loudest praise;
Their hearts and voices raise. 3 There's glory, glory in my soul,
It came from heaven above;
And his dear children love.
I love his ways so well,
To save my soul from hell.
Her Lord, with a perfume,
Togeiher in the tomb;
The angel said, he is not here :
He's risen from the dead;
As free as did his blood.
HYMN 70. P. M.
thy feet; The sacrifice offer, my soul, flesh and blood,
To thee my Redeemer, my Lord and my God. 2 I love thee, I love thee, I love thee my Lord,
I love thee my Saviour, I trust in thy word;
But how much I love thee I never can show, 3 I'm happy, I'm happy, O wond'rous account, My joys are immortal, I stand on the mount, I gaze on my treasure, and long to be there, With angels my kindred, and Jesus my dear. 4 O Jesus, my Saviour, in thee I am blest,
My life and my treasure, my joy and my rest; Thy grace be my theme, and thy name be my
song Thy love doth inspire both my heart and my
tongue. 50 who is like Jesus ? he is Salem's bright king,
He smiles and he loves me, and learns me to sing: I'll praise him, I'll praise him, with notes loud
and shrill, While rivers of pleasure my spirit doth fill.
HYMN 71. P. M.
JESUS, my Saviour, I know thou art mine,
For thee all the pleasures of earth I resign; Thou art my rich treasure, my joy and my love, Nothing richer possess'd by the angels above. Thy spirit first taught me to know I was blind, hon taught me the way of salvation to find; And when I was sinking in gloomy despair, My Jesus reliev'd me, and bid me not fear
3 In vain I attempt to describe what I feel,
The language of mortals here ever must fail; My Jesus is precious, my soul's in a flame,
Iam rais'd into raptures while praising his name. 4 I find him in singing, he is present in prayer,
In sweet meditation he always is near;
All glory to Jesus, he dwells in my heart.
I love thy dear children, thy ways and thy word I love all creation, I love sinners too,
Since Jesus has died to redeem them from wo. 6 When happy in Jesus, I cannot forbear,
Though sinners despise me, his love to declare;
HYMN 72. C. M. 1
HOW sweet the name of Jesus sounds
And drives away his fear.
And calms the troubled breast; "Tis manna to the hungry soul,
And to the weary rest.
My shield and hiding place;
With boundless stores of grace.
Although with sin detil'd;
And I am own'd a child.
My propbet, priest, and king;
Accept the praise I bring.
And cold my warmest thought;
I'll praise thee as I ought.
JESUS, Udove thy charming name,
7 Till then I would thy love proclaim
With every fleeting breath:
HYMN 73. C. M. 1
That earth and heav'n might hear.
My transport and my trust,
And gold is sordid dust.
And shed its fragrance there!
The cordial of its care.
With my last lab'ring breath:
HYMN 74. L. M. 10 God: my heart with love inflame,
Aloud in songs of praise rejoice,
On that eternal, happy shore. 2 O hope of glory, Jesus, come,
And make my heart thy constant home;
And sing and shout, and shout and sing. 3 When on my dying bed I lay,
Lord give me strength to shout and pray; And praise thee with my latest breath, Until my voice is lost in death.
