6 Come, blessed Spirit, from above,
My soul do thou inspire, T'approach the table of the Lord
With fulness of desire.
Be so exceeding sweet,
And at thine altar meet.
H Y M N 282.
FOR THE LOVE OF CHRIST.
By faith and love in ev'ry breast !
The joys that cannot be express’d. 2 Come fill our hearts with inward strength;
Make our enlarged souls possess,
More than our thoughts and wishes know,
FATHER, God, who feeoft in me
Only sin and misery,
Look on thy beloved Son.
To that bloody sacrifice ;
To that utmost ransom paid.
Calls for thy forgiving love ;
Here exhibited beneath..
Let thy bowels then reply;
HY MN 284
Make thy grief
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;
Claim us thou For thy constant dwelling. 5 Fill the heart of each believer ;
We are thine,
LORD, how divine thy comforts are !
How heav'nly is the place
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?
And feals it with a kiss.
Be sounded all abroad,
And worthy of a GoD.
Be everlasting praise,
Eternal as his days.
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
3 Thou our faithful hearts prepare,
Thou thy pard’ning grace declare,
Shew thyself the Crucify'd ! 4
All the guilt of fin remove,

THE TRIUMPHAL FE AST.
He LORD, how glorious is his face !
How kind his smiles appear !
To ev'ry humble ear !
“ It was for you I dy'd;
“ And look into my side. 3 “ These are the wounds for you I bore,
“ The tokens of my pains,
“ From misery and chains.
" And plung'd it in my heart :
" And most tormenting smart.
