2 Father, let Thy Holy Spirit
Show to me a Saviour's love,
And prepare me to inherit

Glory, where He reigns above.
There, with saints and angels dwelling,
May I that great love proclaim,
And with them be ever telling,
All the wonders of His name.

Miss D. A. Thrupp.

LOVE to think, though I am young,
My Saviour was a child;

That Jesus walked this earth along,
With feet all undefiled.

2 He kept His Father's word of truth,
As I am taught to do;

And while He walked the paths of youth,
He walked in wisdom too.

3 I love to think that He who spake,
And made the blind to see,

And called the sleeping dead to wake,
Was once a child like me:

4 That He who wore the thorny crown,
And tasted death's despair,

Had a kind mother like my own,
And knew her love and care.

5 I know 'twas all for love of me
That He became a child,

And left the heavens so fair to see,
And trod earth's pathway wild.

6 Then, Saviour, who wast once a child,
A child may come to Thee;
And oh, in all Thy mercy mild,

Dear Saviour, come to me.

ESUS was the first to love us :


Our dear Lord came from the sky,

Lived a weary life of sorrow,

Then a shameful death did die.
We must all have died for ever,
Had not Jesus died instead ;
Now our sins may all be covered,
By the precious blood He shed.


8.7. D.

2 Oh, how dearly He has loved us,
Long before we loved at all:
Now with us He standeth pleading,
And His loving voice doth call,
"Do you love Me? do you love Me?"
Now I think I hear Him say;
And He waiteth for the answer,
Which my heart will give to-day.

3 Jesus, Lord, I think I love Thee,
But I want to love Thee more;
Now, I pray Thee, send Thy Spirit,
In my heart Thy love to pour.
"If ye love Me, if ye love Me,"
Hark! again I hear Him say,
"Do the things you know will please Me;
All My loving words obey."

JESUS, who lived above the sky,

Came down to be a man and die;

And in the Bible we may see
How very good He used to be.

2 He went about-He was so kind-
To cure poor people who were blind;
And many who were sick and lame,
He pitied them, and did the same.

3 And more than that, He told them too,
The things that God would have them do;
And was so gentle and so mild,

He would have listened to a child.

4 But such a cruel death He died!
He was hung up and crucified !
And those kind hands that did such good,
They nailed them to a cross of wood!

5 And so He died !-and this is why
He came to be a man and die :
The Bible says He came from heaven
That we might have our sins forgiven.

ESUS from His throne on high
Came into the world to die;
That I might from sin be free,
Bled and died upon the tree.

Yes, Jesus loves me, Yes, Jesus loves me;
Yes, Jesus loves me, the Bible tells me so.

2 I can see Him even now,

With His pierced, thorn-clad brow,
Agonizing on the tree :

Oh, what love, and all for me!
3 Now I feel this heart of stone
Drawn to love God's Holy Son,
"Lifted up on Calvary,

Suffering shame and death for me.
4 Jesus, take this heart of mine;
Make it pure, and wholly Thine:
Thou hast bled and died for me,
I will henceforth live for Thee.

Rev. E. P. Hammond.

HERE is a green hill far away,
Without a city wall,

Where the dear Lord was crucified,
Who died to save us all.

2 We may not know-we cannot tell-
What pains He had to bear;
But we believe it was for us
He hung and suffered there.

3 He died that we might be forgiven,
He died to make us good;

That we might go at last to heaven,
Saved by His precious blood.

4 There was no other good enough
To pay the price of sin;
He only could unlock the gate
Of heaven, and let us in.

5 Oh, dearly, dearly has He loved ;
And we must love Him too,

And trust in His redeeming blood,
And try His works to do.

Mrs. C. F. Alexander.

LO, at noon 'tis sudden night;

Darkness covers all the sky :
Rocks are rending at the sight!
Children, can you tell me why?
What can all these wonders be?-
Jesus dies on Calvary !

2 Nailed upon the cross, behold

How His tender limbs are torn;
For a royal crown of gold

They have made Him one of thorn;
Cruel hands that dare to bind
Thorns upon a brow so kind!

3 See, the blood is falling fast

From His forehead and His side!
Hark! He now has breathed His last;
With a mighty groan He died!
Children, shall I tell you why
Jesus condescends to die?

4 You were wretched, weak, and vile,
You deserved His holy frown;
But He saw you with a smile;
And to save you hastened down.
Listen, children: this is why
Jesus condescends to die.

5 Come, then, children, come and see;
Lift your little hands to pray,
"Blessed Jesus, pardon me,
Help a guilty sinner," say;

"Since it was for such as I
Thou didst condescend to die."

7's, 6 lines.

WHEN Lich the Prince of glory died,

HEN I survey the wondrous cross

My richest gain I count but loss,

And pour contempt on all my pride.

2 Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast,
Save in the cross of Christ my God:
All the vain things that charm me most,
I sacrifice them to His blood.



3 See, from His head, His hands, His feet,
Sorrow and love flow mingled down :
Did e'er such love and sorrow meet,

Or thorns compose so rich a crown?

4 Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were an offering far too small;
Love so amazing, so divine,

Demands my soul, my life, my all!


TUNE-Songs of Love and Mercy, No. 52.

THERE is a word I fain would speak

Jesus died.

Eyes that weep, and hearts that break :
Jesus died.

No music from the quivering string
Could such sweet sounds of rapture bring;
Oh, may I always love to sing-

Jesus died.

[blocks in formation]

The holy Lord, the bleeding Lamb,
The Crucified, the Great I AM :
There's life in every lovely name :
Jesus died.

3 And now I need not fear to pray:
Jesus died.

He washes all my sins away:

Jesus died.

[blocks in formation]

4 "Twill soothe my heart with death in view:
Jesus died.

And bear me that cold river through:
Jesus died.

That word will heaven's bright gates unclose,
Release me from my mortal woes,

And bear me where His glory glows:

Jesus died.


Rev. E. Paxton Hood.
