T. 582.

Have sav'd and rescu'd me;

And how thy cleansing blood,
UNTO the Lamb of God, Apply'd unto my heart by faith,
Who to retrieve my loss,

Hath brought me nigh to God:
Became a man and dy’a for me, 6 I in the dust adore,
Upon th' accursed cross;

Amaz'd at grace so free,
Unto the Prince of Life,

Bestow'd on such a wretched worm, Who felt such racking pain,

And ask, “ How can it be, While he the vengeance due to me

That sinners base and vile Did willingly sustain:

Should be so greatly lovod, 2 To him I wholly give

Who cost thee so much pain and grief,
Myself this day anew,

And so ungrateful prov'd ??
As his reward so dearly gain'd, 7 Me thy all-seeing eye
His spoil and purchase due;

Hath kept with watchful care;
That with me he may do

Thy great compassion never fail'd, What's pleasing in his sight, Thou heardst my needy pray'ı; And from me take whate'er him grieves, This makes me firmly trust Whate'er he sees not right.

That thou wilt guide me still, ☆ How very weak I am,

And guard me safe throughout the way
My Saviour well can see,

That leads to Zion's Hill.
And how exceeding short I fall, 8 Dear Saviour, I resign
Of what I ought to be:

My worthless heart to thee;
Compassionate High-Priest,

And whether cheerful or distress'd, To thee I must appeals

Thine, thine alone I'll be: My numberless infirmities

My only aim is this O kindly haste to heal!

(O may I it fulfil !) 4 In thy most precious blood,

Thee to exalt with all my strength, Which from thy open'd yeins,

And do thy holy will. To heal my soul in plenty flow'd, I pray wash out my stains :

22. It is thy daily care,

O GOD of

mercy,

l, grace and love! Thy helpless sheep to feed; Thy yearning bowels did thee move, To purify their spotted souls, To call me from death's gloomy night And gently them to lead.

Into thy own amazing light. 5 Redeemer of my soul !

2 I once was wholly dead in sin, Whene'er thereon I think,

Wholly corrupt and spoild within, How thy compassion, love and grace, The carnal mind still bore the

sway, From sin and hell's dark brink And hurry'd me a slave away.

3 It caus'd thee pain, O Son of God, 3 Jesus cur'd my soul's infection
To see the purchase of thy blood By his suff’rings, stripes and wounds:
So deeply sunk in misery;

From his death and fesurrection,
And 'twas thy aim to set me free. Life and pow'r to me redounds;
A Thou drewest me with cords of love, Once shall heav'nly joys inherit,

I by virtue of his merit
Till thou at last didst conqu’ror prove; And ev'n here a foretaste have,
Till sin's strong pow'r thou hadst sup- of that world beyond the grave.

prest,
And till my weary soul had rest. 4 Jesus yields me delectation ;

When I'm weak he strengthens me, 5 Now, thro' thy wounds my soul hath

Sweetens all my tribulation,
found
Peace, righteousness, and solid ground ; His atoning death and passion

And supports me constantly:
I've now obtained, thro' thy grace,

Are the cause of my salvation;
Among thy ransom'd flock a place.

Therefore Christ shall ne'er depart 6 I thee adure, my gracious King, From my sight and from my heart. And joyful Hallelujahs sing,

5 O! I'm lost in deepest wonder, My eyes with grateful tears o'erflow,

To think he shall soon appear
For all the mercies thou dost show.

To receive me gladly yonder,
7 Faithful to thee I now engage And wipe off my ev'ry tear :
To be throughout my pilgrimage; Then my grateful songs and praises
Accept my life and soul, my King, Shall resound in heav'nly places;
Pledg'd to thy service these I bring. Here by faith to him I'll cleave,
8 Nature's reluctance over-rule, Ješus will I never leave.
My fleshly tenderness control,
O may I always have in view

T. 22.
Not mine, but thy blest will to do.

We pray thee, wounded Lambof God! 9 Thus by thy pow'r I here shall be

Cleanse us in thy atoning blood!
Prepared for eternity,

Grant us by faith to view thy cross,
Walk with my God, him serve and love. Then life or death is gain to us.
Till I shall live with him above.

2 Take our poor hearts, and let them be

For ever clos'd to all but thee!
O! AT last I've found Saviour Seal thou our breasts, and let us wear

Who laid down his life for me: That pledge of love for ever there.
He (O undeserved favor)

3 What are our works but sin & death, Own'd mé as his property : Conscious of my imperfection,

Till thou thy quick’ning Spirit breathe!

Until we strength from thee derive,
I'll rely on his direction :

And in communion with thee live.
I will nothing know beside
Jesus and him crucify'd.

4 Ah, Lord! enlarge our scanty thought,

Toknow the wondersthou hastwrought; 2 Others may seek satisfaction

Unloose our stamm’ring tongues to tell
In this poor world's vanity;
Meanwhile shall my heart's affection

Thy love immense, unsearchable.
On my Saviour fixed be,

5 First-born of many brethren thou! On his meritorious sufl'ring

To thee both earth and heav'n must
And sin-expiating off'ring:
To the world I bid adieu,

Help us to thee our all to give,
Christ alone I have in view. Thine may we die, thine may we live!

2 Dear Lord, thy sov'reign aid impart, Thine be the glory, thine the praise,

To save me from low-thoughted care;

O banish self-will from my heart, 4 May I be faithful to thy call,

From all its latent mazes there;
Surrender unto thee my all,
Myself to thee resign;

And grant, that I may never move
