They hear it, and his person view,
And take him for their all.
Allured by thy voice;
And hearest every sigh;
Unless my Lord is nigh?
And see in all his grace; See him my prophet, priest, and king; See him by faith, and praises sing, Then see him face to face,
691. Al outward means, till God appears,
Will ineffectual prove; Though much the sinner sees and hears,
He cannot learn to love. 2 But let the stoutest sinner feel
The softning warmth of grace, Though hard as ice, or rocks, or steel,
His heart dissolves apace.
3 Feeling the blood which Jesus spilt,
To save his soul from woe, His hatred, unbelief, and guilt, All melt
Reveal thy gracious arm;
“ Ask what I shall give thee."
And ask'd for what the worldlings prize. 2 Thus he invites his people still,
But first instructs them how to choose;
Assured that he will not refuse. 3 And dost thou say, “Ask what thou wilt?"
Lord, I would seize the golden hour;
And freed from sin and Satan's power. 4 More of thy presence, Lord, impart,
More of thy image let me bear;
And reign without a rival there.
And from thy joy to draw my strength;
6 Grant these requests, I ask no more,
But to thy care the rest resign;
Prayer for Preservation from Sin and forbidden Care. LORD, let me feel the unction of thy love, To cheer my heart, and set my mind above; Give me a precious glimpse of thy sweet face, And make me gladly all thy will embrace. 2 Draw me from all forbidden toil and care, From lust, and pride, and every hurtful snare; Make Satan and his hellish powers to flee, And let me have true intercourse with thee. 3 Subdue that monstrous host that dwells within, That cursed train of unbelief and sin; Let faith be active in the Lamb once slain, And all my soul adore, and love his name.
The Church praying for themselves and their Minister. LORD, direct thy own-sent servant;
Teach him how and what to speak; Make him humble, wise, and fervent,
Skill'd the bread of life to break: Let each child enjoy a portion,
Feel their souls alive to God; Freed from pride and empty notion,
Eat thy flesh and drink thy blood. 2 Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
Dwell thou sensibly in us;
And may we thy love inherit,
Freed from guilt, law, and the curse: Sweetly view and feel thy glory,
Open all our hearts to thee;
Prayer to the blessed Spirit.
Magnify the Saviour's name.
Let us feel thy power within;
Unctuously suit every case.
Free us from each carping care;
Drive each rival from the heart. 4 Shower down blessings from above;
Fill our souls with heavenly love;
Public Meeting Place.
And may thy blessed family
Enjoy salvation full and free.
His glorious power make known;
Bring wand'ring sinners home:
And fix his children's hearts above. 3 May watchmen, taught of God,
Jehovah's love declare;
To vanquish guilty fear;
seal in Zion's heart.
Prayer for Nearness unto the Lord.
Bless us with a solemn frame,
To adore thy matchless name:
A sweet glimpse of thy sweet face;
Fill us with thy boundless grace. 2 Let the unction of redemption
Supple every conscience well;
From the rage of sin and hell.
