Part of his host have crossd 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 laud.
Like theirs, with glory crown'd;
And hear his trumpet sound:
O that the word were given!
And land us all in heaven!
Trefuse thy hand to see
HYMN 354. C. M. D. 1 VHE crowd, the poor, unthinking crowd They will not hear thy loudest rod,
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 spalt:
A merciful distinction make,
And strongly save thine own. 4 If earth its mouth must open wide,
To swallow up its prey; Jesus, thy faithful people hide,
In that vindictive day: Firm in the universal shock,
We shall not then remove;
HYMN 355. C. M.
How rich, how full, how free!
I'll tell my wants to thee.
I want to love thee 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 hought them with his blood :
HYMN 356. L. M.
Be own'd and suns 'hrough all the land I
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'd!
Is wisely urder'd from on high.
From God receive fertility.
On what thy bounteous hand imparte,
HYMN 357. S. M.
To souls oppress'd with fear;
To leave thy burden here? 9 Is Jesus full of grace ?
Then why dost thou complain? 0! why refuse to seek his face,
His favour to obtain ?
Go mourning all thy days?
And fill my mouth with praise. 4 Revire my fainting heart
With thy forgiving love;
HYMN 358. C. M.
LET world harm's forenworld pursue
It has no charms for ne;
But grace has set me free.
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; So earthly pleasures fade away,
When Jesus is revealed. 4 Creatures no more divide my choice,
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 359. P. M. 1 HI
ELP, O help, my great Creator!
Love the soul thyself 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 of 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.
LOVER of sinners, extend
To me thy affectionate grace;
Afford me 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 shall in all things obey,
HYMN 362. P. M 10 food
FATHER of all, who fillest with good, Them ready to perish, thou lov'st to sustain, And wilt thou not cherish the children of men ?
