Jesus Christ is Passing By.

"They told him that Jesus of Nazareth passeth by."- LUKE Xviii. 12.
Tune-Sacred Songs and Solos, No. 262.

ESUS Christ is passing by, Sinner, lift to Him thine eye;
As the precious moments flee, Cry, "Be merciful to me !"
2 Jesus Christ is passing by; Will He always be so nigh?
Now is the accepted day; Seek for healing while you may.

3 Lo! He stands and calls to thee, Rise, and tell Him all thy need;

"What wilt thou then have of Me?" Rise-He calleth thee indeed.

4 "Lord, I would Thy mercy see; Lord, reveal Thy love to me; Let it penetrate my soul, All my heart and life control."

5 Oh, how sweet! the touch of power Comes-it is salvation's hour; Jesus gives from guilt release-"Faith hath saved thee; go in peace!"

"The redeemed of the Lord shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head.”—ISAIAH li. II.

Tune-Sacred Songs and Solos, No. 263.

ET us sing as we journey along day by day,


As we tread slowly on in our heavenward way;
Let us sing of the rest that awaiteth our feet,
When we pass
the white gates to the beautiful street.

Let us sing, let us sing, as on earth here we roam,
Of the welcome that waits us in home, sweet home,
If ever I loved thee, my Jesus, 'tis now;
If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus, 'tis now.

2 When we pause by the wayside, all weary and faint,
And would sit down discouraged, and full of complaint,
Oh sing! and the wearisome care will have fled,
As we sing of the rest that is waiting ahead.

3 As the wanderer sings in some far-away land,
Of his own sweet, sweet home on a beautiful strand,
So we sing as we journey still onward to God,
Of the home that is ours, where the angels have trod.

"Who may abide the day of His coming? and who shall stand when He appeareth."-MALACHI iii. 2.


Tune-Sacred Songs and Solos, No. 264.
EE th' eternal Judge descending,


View Him seated on His throne!
Now, poor sinner, now lamenting,

Stand and hear thine awful doom!

Trumpets call thee, Stand and hear thine awful doom!

2 Lo, the last long separation!

As the cleaving crowds divide;
Words of life or condemnation
Send each soul to either side!

Lord of mercy! How shall I that day abide?
3 Yonder sits my slighted Saviour,
With the marks of dying love;
Oh that I had sought His favour,
When I felt His Spirit move:

Golden moments, When I felt His Spirit move

Taking the Cross.

"If any man will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and

follow Me."-MATT. xvi. 24.

"Come, take up the cross, and follow Me."-MARK X. 21.
Tune--Sacred Songs and Solos, No. 265.

JESUS, I my cross have taken,

All to leave and follow Thee:

Naked, poor, despised, forsaken,
Thou, from hence, my all shall be.
Perish every fond ambition,

All I've sought, or hoped, or known,
Yet how rich is my condition!

God and heaven are still my own.
2 Let the world despise and leave me,
They have left my Saviour too;
Human hearts and looks deceive me;
Thou art not, like them, untrue.
And while Thou shalt smile upon me,
God of wisdom, love, and might,

Foes may hate, and friends may scorn me―
Show Thy face, and all is bright.


The Pence of God.

"These things I have spoken unto you, that in Me ye might have peace."

"That, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep.”

ROM. xiii. II.

Tune-Sacred Songs and Solos, No. 267.

IME is earnest, passing by;


Death is earnest, drawing nigh;

Sinner, wilt thou trifling be?
Time and death appeal to thee.

2 Life is earnest; when 'tis o'er,
Thou returnest never more;
Soon to meet eternity,

Wilt thou never serious be?

3 God is earnest; kneel and pray
Ere thy season pass away;

Ere be set His Judgment throne-
Vengeance ready, mercy gone.

4 Oh, be earnest ! death is near;
Thou wilt perish, lingering here:
Sleep no longer, rise and flee ;
Lo, thy Saviour waits for thee!


How Much Owest Thou?

"Ye are not your own; for ye are bought with a price."-1 COR, xvi, 19, 20. Tune-Sacred Songs and Solos, No. 268.

[blocks in formation]


O child of God and heir of heaven,
Thy soul redeemed, thy sins forgiven—
How much owest thou?

All the Way long it is Jesus.

"I have set the Lord always before me."-Ps. xvi. 8.
Tune-Sacred Songs and Solos, No. 269.

I'M on my journey up Zion's hill,
All the way, 'long it is Jesus,

The way grows brighter and brighter still,
All the way 'long it is Jesus.

Jesus, Jesus, why, all the way 'long it is Jesus.

2 And oh, how happy the pilgrim's lot,
All the way 'long it is Jesus:

He has a comfort the world has not,
All the way 'long it is Jesus.

3 Let storm-clouds gather and troubles rise,
All the way 'long it is Jesus;

He seeks a city with cloudless skies,
All the way 'long it is Jesus.



4 At home the pilgrims together will sing,
All the way 'long it is Jesus;

We'll make the heavenly mansions ring,
All the way 'long it is Jesus.

O Saviour, I am Blind!

"The Lord openeth the eyes of the blind."-Ps. cxlvi. 8.
Tune-Sacred Songs and Solos, No. 270.

SAVIOUR, I am blind! Lead Thou my way;
Day to my filmèd eye is dark—

E'en night is only darker day.

Oh, I am blind; Dear Saviour, I am blind!
2 O Saviour, I am deaf! Unstop my ear:

My heart would turn to Thy dear voice,
The voice Thy sheep alone will hear.
Oh, I am deaf; Dear Saviour, I am deaf!
3 O Saviour, I am poor! Give me to eat :

My hungered heart loathes earthly food,
And heavenly manna craves for meat.
Oh, I am poor; Dear Saviour, I am poor!
4 O Saviour, I believe! Blind, deaf, and poor;
Sight give'me-hearing-heavenly food;

Thou hast them in Thy blessed store.
Thee I believe; O Saviour, I believe !

Go Die is Gain.

"To me to live is Christ, and to die is gain."-PHILIPPIANS i. 21. Tune-Sacred Songs and Solos, No. 271.

[ocr errors]

die is gain," All earthly cares forsaking;
From toil and pain, To endless joy awaking;
To die is gain.

2 "To die is gain," My weary soul home bringing;
O'er heavenly plain Sweet angel voices ringing;
To die is gain.


"To die is gain," From strife and sin to sever,
With Christ to reign, For ever, oh, for ever;
To die is gain,
