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;
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;
Now finds rest in thee my God. 9 I am safe, and I am happy,
While in thy dear arms a lie;
While my Saviour is so nigh. 3 Now I'll sing of Jesu's merit,
Tell the world of his dear name
He is still the very same.
He that seeks is sure to find ;
Jesus never casts behind,
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.
And let us join to sing
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,
of falling into sin:
Will prove a fatal snare,
By faith and humble prayer. 3 But by our disobedience,
With sorrow we confess,
In a dark wilderness;
In that enchanted ground;
Of pleasant grapes we found. 4 The pleasant fruits of Canaan
Give life, and joy, and peace :
And faith and love increase.
And run at his command,
Unto the proinis'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.
6 Sinners, why stand ye idle,
While we do march along?
That you are going wrong-
To bear an endless curse ?
And come along with us. 7 But if you will refuse us,
We 'bid you all farewell,
And you the way to hell;
We'd raiher you would go;
And feel salvation flow. 8 0 sinners, be awaken'd
To see your disinal state:
Before it is too late ;
And daily search his word
Until you find the Lord. 9 Now to the king inmortal
Be; everlasting praise,
We mean to spend our days;
The celestial world above,
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.
Two are better still than one;
Makes the banquet sweeter still, 3 Now I go to heaven's door,
Asking for a little more :
Jesus gives a double share,
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.
: But a treasure coming in,
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!
