HYMN 78. P. M. 1 NOME listening angels, attend while I sing Great things for my soul he surely has done,
All glory to God for the gift of his Son.
Neglected his calls and despised his word;
Some knowledge of pleasure and honour obtain. 3 At length the gospel trumpet did sound in my
ears, And thunders from heaven awakened my fears; The tears of repentance then freely did run,
For slighting the Saviour, alas! i'm undone. 4 One evening, while musing, these words came
with power, O do not be troubled, nor doubt any more ; Believe in the word, believe also in me, In my Father's house there's a mansion for
thee. 5 'Tis the voice of my Saviour, my soul then did
cry, On Calvary he suffered, and for me did die; His five bleeding wounds are now pleading
He offers me pardon, he bids me be free. 6 My soul is now anchor'd in the fountain of love,
My heart and my treasure's in heaven above ; Through grace I 'm determind I ne'er will
give o'er, Till safely I'm landed on Canaan's blest shore.
HYMN 79. P. M.
What a tender kind Saviour has done for poor me. 2 I was led by the devil, till lost and distress'd,
I thought that in torments I soon should be cast,
's interceding, hase of his blood ks I hear him praying, are them, I have died: er answers, saying, freely justified."
HYMN 81. P. M.
OME all ye weary travellers, The everlasting praises
Of Jesus Christ, our king.
And tiresome, 'tis true;
The Lord has brought us through. 2 At first when Jesus found us,
He called us unto him,
or falling into sin:
Will prove a fatal snare,
By faith and humble prayer. 3 But by our disobedience,
With sorrow' we confess, We've had tor long to wander
In a dark wilderness; Where we might soon have fainted,
In that enchanted ground; But now and then a cluster
Of pleasant grapes we found. 4 The pleasant fruits of Canaan
Give life, and joy, and peace: Revive our drooping spirits,
And faith and love increase, Confess our Lord and Master,
And run at his command, And hasten on our journey,
Unto the promis'd land.
5 In faith, and hope, and patience,
We now are going on
Where Jesus Christ is gone.
We're going to rejoice,
For ever be our choice.
While we do march aiong?
That you are going wrong-
To bear an endless curse ?
And come along with us. 7 But if you will refuse us,
We 'll bid you all farewell;
And you the way to hell;
We'd rather you would go;
And feel salvation flow.
8 0 sinners, be awaken'd
To see your dismal state:
Before it is too late ;
And daily search his word;
Until you find the Lord.
9 Now to the king immortal
Be, everlasting praise, For in his ho!y service
We mean to spend our days; Till we arrive at Canaan,
The celestial world above, With everlasting praises,
To sing redeeming love.
HYMN 82. P. M.
1 HOME and taste, along with me,
Consolation running free,
Sweeter than the honey-comb.
Two are better still than one;
Malls the banquet sweeter still. 3 Now I go to heaven's door,
Asking for a little more :
Through the New Jerusalem,
Sweetens earth, and heaven both. 5 Saints in glory sing aloud,
For to see an heir of God!
Making of the number more. 6 Now my body doth its best,
For to keep me back from Christ;
Doth oppose my inbred sin.
Cannot stop the force of grace ;
And a sinner to receive.
Comfort 's flowing every where!
That my soul hath got a taste. 9 Now I go rejoicing home, From the banquet
of perfume ! Finding manna on the road, Dropping from the mount of God.
