5 "Whate'er is carnal, thro' thy grace
485.* T. 185.
HE who striveth for sanctification,
Since with sin he still takes part;
486. T. 151.
WHO, thro' Christ's blood, remission
Attains thro' Jesus' grace,
Shows forth his matchless praise.
487. T. 166.
THOU, Jesus! more than thirty years
488*. T. 185.
WITH new life endow'd by Christ our Saviour,
Might we to this world be dead; That great prize to gain be our endeavor, Purchas'd when for us he bled; Filled with his love, may we adore him, Thinking,speaking,acting,as before him Being to his gracious mind Ever willingly resign'd.
2 May we all be ever so disposed In our hearts, by day and night, As when this life's period being closed,
We to him shall take our flight; Oras when, releas'd from condemnation; We receiv'd the seal of our salvation, And obtained, thro' his blood, Happiness and peace with God!
489. T. 126.
DRAW nigh to Christ, your Brother,
2 He's yours, with all his merit,
3 Whoe'er this truth believeth,
LORD Jesus, sanctify thou me,
2 The blood-sweat trickling down thy face,
My condemnation doth erase;
3 The water flowing from thy side,
492. T. 14.
I ASK not honor, pomp or praise,
2 I wish, as faithful christians do,
3 O grant me thro' thy precious blood,
493. T. 14. BESPRINKLE with thy blood my heart,
O Jesus, Son of God;
494.* T. 586. JESUS, thyself to us reveal, Grant that we may not only feel Some dawnings of thy grace, But in communion with thee live, And daily from thy death derive
The needful strength to run our race. 2 O let us always think thee near, As near unto us as the air
Which constantly we breathe ; Thus will from all we think or do To thee unfeigned praises flow; For thine we are in life and death. 3 Jesus, thou fain wouldst have us be In all things more conform'd to thee; We're fill'd with conscious shame, And thank thee for thy care and love; Thy patience, which we richly prove, Our heart-felt gratitude doth claim.
O LORD GOD Holy Ghost,
With thee in close communion;
2 The genuine mind of Christ,
From Jesus' great salvation;
496. T. 16.
JESUS, by thy Holy Spirit
Of thy blest humanity.
2 Grant that we may love thee truly, Lord, our thoughts and actions sway, And to ev'ry heart more fully
Thy atoning pow'r display.
3 Lead us so that we may honor
Thee, the Lord our Righteousness, And bring fruit to thee, the Donor Of all gospel-truth and grace.
497.* T. 23.
TO that Lord, who unconstrained Death's dire pangs for us sustained, May we all in our small measure Willingly give joy and pleasure. 12 May our mind and whole behavior Bear resemblance to our Saviour, And his sanctifying merit Hallow body, soul and spirit.
500. T. 586.
Of sinful frail humanity,
502.* T. 228.
O JESUS, were we thro' thy grace,
Like thee in thought and action;
Might, dear Saviour, our behavior,
In all my smart. Thro' thy blessing,
LORD Jesus, thy atonement
Be ever new to us;
Always be to thee well-pleasing.
XXVII. Of Humility, Simplicity, and Growth in Grace.
504. T. 590.
OLORD, the contrite sinner's Friend,
Most wretched should I be,
Nought could console me in distress,
505.* T. 22.
WHOE'ER in Jesus doth believe,
4 O keep me contrite, low and poor! 2 His loving-kindness those shall rich-
507.* T. 14.
NONE God the Father's favor share,
2 The high and mighty ones the Lord Doth from their seats put down; But to the afford, grace And them with blessings crown. 3 O may I with submissiveness,
Dear Lord, be taught by thee;
4 Jesus, I humbly thee implore,
5 A lowly mind impart to me,
6 Thou, who in heaven art ador'd,
Dost with the contrite dwell, Revive the humble by thy word,
The broken-hearted heal.
7 Therefore, my soul, delight no more
8 Lord Jesus Christ, O may I grow
508.* T. 583.
THOSE are partakers of our Saviour's
Who at a loss, and ready to despair, Retire in secret, pray him for relief, And consolation to assuage their grief. 3 To those the Lord will deign his teaching mild,
Who gladly listen to the meanest child,
And from experience willingly allow, That they are learners, and but little know.
510.* * T. 141.
GO, ye flattʼring visions,
In our Saviour trusts,
511.* T. 16. WHEN simplicity we cherish,
Then the soul is full of light: But that light will quickly vanish,
When of Jesus we lose sight.
2 He who nought but Christ desireth, He whom nothing else can cheer But the joy which he inspireth, Lending to his voice an ear;
