3 For, without His blesséd teaching,
All our reading must be vain :
Till the Spirit make it plain.
That in him there's nothing good ;
To the Saviour's precious blood. 5 Deeply are our hearts polluted :
Le would cleanse and keep them clean,-
While His witness dwells within.
Lest the day of grace depart;
To a humble, willing heart!
"The manifestations of the Spirit."
4.6's & 2-8's.
THOU that hearest prayer!
Attend our humble cry;
Thy blessing from on high :
Grant us Thy Holy Spirit, Lord !
Their children's wants supply,-
Our heavenly Father, Thou:
Descend and fill the place --
“Shew me Thy ways, O Lord."
Teach us what Thou would'st have us do,
? Prevent us, lest we harbour pride,
Lest we in our own strength confide;
We have our power, our all, from Theo.
Our kind Protector ever prove;
And let Thy Spirit on us rest.
Incline our natures to obey;
And only love what pleases Thee.
But Thine, and only Thine, fulfil ;
" The Spirit and the Bride say, Come."
Is whispering, Sinner, Come!
To all His children, Come!
To all about him, Come!
To Christ, the Fountain, come!
O let him freely come,
'Tis Jesus bids him Come!
Declares, “I quickly come;
"A still, small voice,"
TAKE my poor heart, just as it is,
And live to Thee alone.
That I may faithful prove:
Which only whispers-love;
8 Which teaches me Thy sovereign will,
And tells me what to do ;
Do not Thy will pursue.
This teaching from the Lord;
Thy soul-reviving word.
"An habitation of God through the Spirit 104 EPH. 11. 22.
2-7'6.8&to 1 HOLY Ghost, dispel our sadness ;
Pierce the clouds of nature's night;
Breathe Thy life, and spread Thy light! 2 Author of our new creation,
Bid us all Thine influence prove;
“Early will I seek Thee." 105
PSALM lxlii. l.
Teach me Thy will to know;
Betimes on me bestow !
The object of Thy care ;
And flee from every snare, 3 My heart, to folly prone,
Renew by power divine;
And make me wholly Thine. 4 Lord, let Thy word of grace
My warmest thoughts employ ;
My treasure and my joy.
Be my whole soul inclined ;
And sanctify my mind! 6
May Thy young servant learn
By theso tù cleanse his way;
That leads to endless day.
"The fruit of the Spirit."
D. 18.104.22.168. 1 FAR too often men are crying-
" Who will show us any good ?"
They neglect a Saviour's blood :
On the banks of living streams;
Where the Holy Spirit beams. 2 For the fount of living waters,
For the day-star's heavenly rays,
Still to give Thee fervent praise :
Or beneath the Gospel's sound,
May the Spirit's fruit abound;
Temperance in every thing,
Faith, whence other graces spring;
And the Spirit makes them mine;
And the glory shall be Thine!
THE HOLY TRINITY,
"Three that bear record in heaven." 107
1 JOHN V. 7.
In every time and place,
The God of truth and grace:
All in one thanksgiving join;
Eternal praise be Thine!
Which gave Thy Son to die;
Alike we giorify;
Praise by all to Thee be given,
And earth is turned to heaven!
"All spiritual blessings." 108 EPH. i. 3.
Thy Son, Thy Spirit, and Thy word :
This world's affections, God of love!
What shall we give Thee ?-take our hearts;
EPH. v. 19.
Grateful anthems let us raise ;
Swells the tribute of our praise.
Fountain of eternal love :
Sent a Saviour from above.
Who, with love unknown before,
And our sins and sorrows bore ! 4 Equal strains of warm devotion
Let the Spirit's praise employ;
Source of wisdom, peace, and joy!
Glorify Jehovah's name,
There the theme is still the same.
"I will sing and give praise." L.M. 110
