6 Come, blessed Spirit, from above,

My soul do thou inspire, T'approach the table of the Lord

With fulness of desire.
O let our entertainment now

Be so exceeding sweet,
That we may long to come again,

And at thine altar meet.

H Y M N 282.


OME, deareft LORD, descend, and dwell

By faith and love in ev'ry breast !
Then shall we know, and taste, and feel,

The joys that cannot be express’d. 2 Come fill our hearts with inward strength;

Make our enlarged souls possess,
And learn the height, and breadth, and

Of thine unmeasurable grace.
3 Now to the God whose pow'r can do

More than our thoughts and wishes know,
Be everlasting honours done,
By all the church, thro' Christ the Son.

FATHER, God, who feeoft in me

Only sin and misery,
See thine own anointed One,

Look on thy beloved Son.
2 Turn from me thy glorious eyes,

To that bloody sacrifice ;
To that full atonement made,

To that utmost ransom paid.
3 To the blood that speaks above,

Calls for thy forgiving love ;
To the tokens of his death,

Here exhibited beneath..
4 Hear his blood's prevailing cry,

Let thy bowels then reply;
Then thro' him the finner see;
Then in Jesus look on me!


HY MN 284

AMB of God, for whom we languish,

Make thy grief

Our relief,
Ease us by thine anguish.

2 O our agonizing Saviour !

By thy pain

Let us gain God's eternal favour. 3 In thine own appointment bless us ;

Meet us here

Out Almighty Jesus! 4 Let the ordinance be fealing;

Enter now,

Claim us thou For thy constant dwelling. 5 Fill the heart of each believer ;

HYMN 285

LORD, how divine thy comforts are !

How heav'nly is the place
Where Jesus spreads the facred feast

Of his redeeming grace ? 2 “ Here” (says the kind redeeming LORD,

And shews his wounded side) « See here the spring of all your joys,

“ 'That open'd when I dy'd.”

He smiles, and chears my mournful heart,

And tells of all his pain ; “ All this, says he, I bore for thee,"

And then he smiles again. + What shall we pay our heav'nly King,

For grace so vast as this?
He brings our pardon to our eyes,

And feals it with a kiss.
5 Let such amazing loves as these

Be sounded all abroad,
Such favours are beyond degrees,

And worthy of a GoD.
6 To him, that wash'd us in his blood

Be everlasting praise,
Salvation, honour, glory, pow'r,

Eternal as his days.

HYMN 286.

JESU, dear redeeming Lord,

Magnify thy dying word; In thine ordinance appear,

Come and meet thy followers here. 2 In the rite thou haft enjoin'd,

Let us now our Saviour find
Drink thy blood for finners shed,
Taste thee in the broken bread.

Shew thyself the Crucify'd ! 4

Fill us with thy heav'nly love,
Stamp us with the ftamp divine,
Seal us, LORD, for ever chine,

He LORD, how glorious is his face !

How kind his smiles appear !
And O! what melting words he says,

To ev'ry humble ear !
“For you, the children of my love,

“ It was for you I dy'd;
“ Behold my bleeding hands and feet,

“ And look into my side. 3 “ These are the wounds for you I bore,

“ The tokens of my pains,
« When I came down to free your souls

“ From misery and chains.
• Justice unsheath'd its fiery sword,

" And plung'd it in my heart :
“ Infinite pangs for you i bore,

" And most tormenting smart.
