Praying for a Blessing.
COLLECTION OF HYMNS,
HYMN 1. (C. M.)
Christ appearing to Sinners.
BLESSED Jesus, God's dear Son,
2 Didst thou not come astray to find,
To bless the poor amongst mankind,
3 Thou know'st that I a sinner am,
Pass by me, Lord, say "Sinner, live,
5 I own myself a sinful one,
A foolish child and poor;
6 Increase my faith, confirm my hope,
7 There let me see my Saviour's face,
HYMN 2. as 119. (L. M.)
He hath done all things well. Mark vii. 37. 1 NOW in a song of grateful praise,
To my dear Lord my voice I'll raise; With all his saints I'll join to tell, My Jesus hath done all things well. 2 How sov'reign, wonderful, and free, Has been this love to sinful me; This pluck'd me from the jaws of hell; My Jesus hath done all things well. 3 I spurn'd his grace, I broke his laws, And yet he undertook my cause, To save me, though I did rebel; My Jesus hath done all things well. And since my soul has known his love, What mercies hath he made me prove; Mercies which do all praise excel, My Jesus hath done all things well. 5 Tho' many a fiery flaming dart, The Tempter levels at my heart, With this I all his rage repelMy Jesus hath done all things well,
6 Now all his words his pow'r confess,
HYMN 3. (7s.)
Lovest thou me ?
1 HARK, my soul, it is the Lord,
2" I deliver'd thee when bound,
"And when wounded heal'd thy wound; Sought thee wand'ring, set thee right, "Turn'd thy darkness into light.
3" Can a woman's tender care
"Cease towards the child she bare? "Yes, she may forgetful be, "Yet will I remember thee. 4" Mine is an unchanging love, "Higher than the heights above, "Deeper than the depths beneath, "Free and faithful, strong as death. 5" Thou shalt see my glory soon, "When the work of grace is done, "Partner of my throne shall be; "Say, poor sinner, lov'st thou me?”
6 Lord, it is my chief complaint,
HYMN 4. (L. M.)
The happy hopeful Saint.
1 MAY I
20 may I find some humble seat,
3 I'm glad that I am born to die ;
4 I'll praise him while he lends me breath;
5 Farewell, vain world, I am going home,
