HYMN 78. P. M. 'CME listening angels, attend while I sing

The wonders of Jesus,my conquering king; Great things for my soul he surely has done,

All glory to God for the gift of his Son. 2 I wanderd in darkness a stranger to God, Neglected his calls and despised his word; In romances and novels I thought I should gain 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 caine

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 sbore.

HYMN 79. P. M. 1

COME brethren and sisters, that love my dear I

pray give attention and ear to my word; What a wonder of mercy! behold now I see

Wha: a tender kind Saviour has done for poor me i ! was led by the devil, till lost and distressid,

I thought that in torments I soon should be cast,

No peace to my conscience, but all misery,

Till by faith I saw Jesus hang bleeding for me. 3 0 sinner, said Jesus, for you I have died; All glory to Jesus, iny soul then replied: The guilt was remov'd, my soul did rejoice, The blood was applied, the witness and voice. 4 On my low bended knees before God I did fall,

And glory to Jesus, for he's all in all;
The heart of his rebel was bursted in twain,

To see piy dear Jesus on Calvary slain. 3 There was peace now in heaven, and peace upon

earth, The angels rejoice at a poor sinner's birth; Your sins are forgiven, my Saviour did say,

Oh, witness kind beaven, on this my birth day. 6 My soul it was humbled, I fell to the ground;

The time of refreshing at length I have found; O Lord, thou hast ravish'd my soul with thy

charms, Let me die like old Simeon, with Christ in my arms.

HYMN 80. P. M. 1

Sprinkled with redeeniing blood;
And my troubled, weary spirit,

Now finds rest in thee my God. 9 I am safe, and I am happy,

While in thy dear arms a lie;
Sin or Satan can not harm ne,

While my Saviour is so nigh. 3 Now I'll sing of Jesu's merit,

Tell the world of his dear name
That if any want his spirit,

He is still the very same.
4 He that asketh soon receivetli,

He that seeks is sure to find ;
Who of comfort is bereaved,

Jesus never casts behind,
5 Now our Advocate is pleading,

With his Father and our God:

Now for us he 'a interceding,

As the purchase of his blood 6 Now methinks I hear him praying,

Father spare them, I have died:' And the Father answers, saying,

“They are freely justified."

HYMN 81. P. M.

OME all ye weary travellers,

And let us join to sing
The everlasting praises

Of Jesus Christ, our king.
We've had a tedious journey,

And tiresome, 'tis true ;
But see how many dangers

The Lord has brought us through. 2 At first when Jesus found us,

He called us unto him,
And pointed out the danger

of falling into sin:
The world, the flesh, and Satan

Will prove a fatal snare,
Unless we do reject them,

By faith and humble prayer. 3 But by our disobedience,

With sorrow we confess,
We've had too 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 proinis'd land.

5 In faith, and hope, and patience,

We now are going on
The pleasant way to Canaan,

Where Jesus Christ is gone.
In peace and consolation,

We're going to rejoice,
And Jesus and his people

For ever be our choice.

6 Sinners, why stand ye idle,

While we do march along?
Has conscience never told you

That you are going wrong-
Down the broad road to ruin,

To bear an endless curse ?
Forsake your ways of sinning,

And come along with us. 7 But if you will refuse us,

We 'bid you all farewell,
'Ve 're on the way to Canaan,

And you the way to hell;
We're sorry for to leave you,

We'd raiher you would go;
Come try a bleeding Saviour,

And feel salvation flow. 8 0 sinners, be awaken'd

To see your disinal state:
Repent and be converted,

Before it is too late ;
Turn to the Lord by praying,

And daily search his word
And never rest contented,

Until you find the Lord. 9 Now to the king inmortal

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.


COME and taste, along with me,

From our Father's wealthy throne,

Sweeter than the honey-comb.
3 Wherefore should I feast alone,

Two are better still than one;
The more comes in with a free, good win,

Makes the banquet sweeter still, 3 Now I go to heaven's door,

Asking for a little more :

Jesus gives a double share,
* Calling me his chosen heir.
4 Goodness running like a stream,

Through the New Jerusalem,
And by a constant breaking forth,

Sweetens earth, and heaven both. 5 Saints in glory sing aloud,

For to see an heir of God!
Coming in at leaven's door,

Making of the number more.
6 Now my body doth its best,
For to keep me back from Christ

: But a treasure coming in,

Doth oppose my inbred sin.
7 Sinful nature, hatching vice;

Cannot stop the force of grace;
Whilst there is a God to give,

And a sinner to receive.
E Heaven's here and heaven's there,

Comfort 's flowing every where !
This I boldly do profess,

That my soul hath got a taste. 9 Now I go rejoicing home,

From the banquet of perfume!
Finding manna on the road,
Dropping froin the mount of God.
