2 Bound hand and foot with chains of sin,
Death dragg’d me for his prey;
All hope was far away. 3 I cried, in agony of mind,
Lord, I beseech thee, save:”.
And mercy shut the grave.
From God no longer roam;
His goodness callid thee home. 5 What shall I render unto thee,
My Saviour, in distress,
So great and numberless?
And thus thy power proclaim;
And call upon thy name. 7 Thou covenanted God of
And at thine altar bow:-
With single heart and eye,
And bless thee when I die.
497. C.M.-" This do in remembrance of me.” Luke xxii. 19. 1 ACCORDING to thy gracious word,
In meek humility,
I will remember Thee.
2 Thy body broken for
My bread from heaven shall be;
And thus remember Thee. 3 Gethsemane can I forget?
Or there thy conflict see,
And not remember Thee?
And rest on Calvary,
I must remember Thee:-
And all thy love to me;
Will I remember Thee. 6 And when these failing lips grow dumb,
And mind and memory flee,
Jesus, remember me.
C.M.-Jesus hasting to suffer.
Was kindled in his breast';
He march'd before the rest!
His every thought engross;
He pants to reach the cross.
And woes to us unknown,
'Twas love that urg'd him on.
4 Lord, we return thee what we can!
Our hearts shall sound abroad, Salvation to the dying Man,
And to the rising God!
Engage our wondering eyes,
499. C.M.- Nearness to God through Christ. Eph. ii. 13. 1 AND are we now brought near to God,
Who once at distance stood ? And, to effect this glorious change,
Did Jesus shed his blood?
To bear our souls above!
Or damp our flaming love! 3 Draw us, O Lord, with quickening grace,
And bring us yet more near;
And taste thy mercies here. 4 O may that love which spread thy board,
Dispose us for the feast;
Through Jesus' bleeding breast. 5 Fir'd with the view, our souls shall rise,
In such a scene as this,
And does thy cup with love o'erflow? Thither be all thy children led,
And let them all its sweetness know.
2 Hail sacred feast, which Jesus makes!
Rich banquet of his flesh and blood! Thrice happy he, who here partakes
That sacred stream, that heavenly food! 3 Why are its dainties all in vain
Before unwilling hearts display'd?
forbid the children's bread? 4 O let thy table honour'd be,
And furnish'd well with joyful guests; And may each soul salvation see,
That here its sacred pledges tastes. 5 Let crowds approach with hearts prepar’d;
With hearts inflam'd let all attend; Nor, when we leave our Father's board,
The pleasure, or the profit end. 6 Revive thy dying churches, Lord,
And bid our drooping graces live; And more that energy afford,
A Saviour's blood alone can give.
1 THE' atoning work is done,
The victim's blood is shed;
His people's cause to plead.
And bears their names upon his breast. . 2 He sprinkles with his blood
The mercy seat above;
The purposes of love.
3 No temple made with hands
His place of service is;
An heavenly priesthood his:
Are all fulfill'd, and now withdraw. 4 And though awhile he be Hid from the
men, His people look to see
Their great High Priest again: In brightest glory he will come, And take his waiting people home.
P.M.-Christian Fellowship. 1 JESUS is our common Lord,
He our loving Saviour is;
Misery we exchange for bliss.
O’tis more than tongue can tell!
Glorious and unspeakable. 2 Christ our Brother and our Friend,
Shews us his eternal love:
Till we take our seats above.
For our bridal day prepare;
For our glorious meeting there.
P.M.- The Pilgrim's Song. 1 CHILDREN of the heavenly King! As ye journey, sweetly sing: Sing your Saviour's worthy praise, Glorious in his works and ways.
