6 Lord, with shame and grief I own,
I to evil still am prone;
When from sin shall I be freed?
Help me all thy will to do;
“What will ye see in the Shulamite ?"--Cant. vi. 13.
2 As one in the Lord, he's a true son of peace; In himself, he is nothing but sin and disgrace; His body's the temple of the Holy Ghost, And Christ in him dwelleth, as King ofone host.
3 When Christ takes possession, and proves himself King,
[bring; Then sin, world, and Satan, their forces will Nor will they be wanting of gun-shot from hell; The old prince of darkness will furnish them well.
4 Yet such is the power and love of our King, In spite of all hell we of victory sing; For though sin and devils against us unite, 'Tis Christ fights our battles, and puts them to Aight.
5 The victory is thine! then let hell do its worst; For Christ will still reign, and of Christ thou shalt boast;
[wear, And when the fight's ended, the crown thou shalt And immortal glory with Christ thou shaltshare. 613.
Glorying in Infirmities.--2 Cor. xi 30.
And enemies deride;
And wound my soul, and make me halt. 2 I want to be set free
From every hateful foe;
And only pleasure know:
That I infirmities should feel. 3 [Infirmities, as means,
Have taught my soul to see,
But Christ will do for me;
Or sink in ruin, guilt, and thrall.) 4 I'll gladly glory, then,
In my infirmity,
“ The Lord trieth the righteous."-Ps. xi. 5.
Yet we'll adore his name;
Nor put their hope to shame. 2 He brings them to the test,
And tries them by his law;
From whence they comfort draw. 3 Then he his face conceals,
And lets them grope within;
The dreadful plague of sin.
A monstrous mass of woe!
And whither can we go?
“ Thy beauty's all in me; 'Tis thine to flee from self, and prize
Salvation full and free.
Or lets the tempter do,
One thing I keep in view;
By faith in Jesus' name; For guilt and sin to mourn and grieve, And sing the Lamb once slain.”
8. 7. 4.
“In the world ye shall have tribulation."-John xvi. 33. SINNERS, call’d by grace, and blessed
With a living faith in Christ,
Satan's agents Cannot love the Saviour's choice. 2 Let this thought the Christian strengthen;
Jesus' name is life and peace;
Souls that trust him,
For the name of Christ, their Lord;
Soon he'll teach them,
That endures for Jesus' sake; He of endless life's a winner; Of his glory shall partake;
Jesus will not, Cannot, such a soul forsake.] 5 O for love, for faith, and patience!
Jesus, fix our souls on ihee!
May we ever
Zion to her journey's end?
Travel through a wilderness,
Be tormented night and day?] 3 Yes, affliction is their lot;
Earth is a polluted spot;
All in league with death and hell. 4 Pains and sorrows, sins and woes,
Will the Christian's way oppose;
Zion's troubles to renew.
They with cheerfulness go through,
When opposed to Christ, their God. 6 Living faith will still esteem
The reproaches of the Lamb,
Can afford the sons of mirth.
And endure, for Jesus' sake,
