Come, Thou Fount of ev-'ry blessing, Tune my heart to sing Thy grace;

D. C.-Praise the mount; I'm fixed up-on it; Mount of Thy re-deem-ing love.

D. C.

Teach me some me-lo-dious sonnet, Sung by flam-ing tongues a-bove: A - MEN.

2 Here I'll raise my Ebenezer;

Hither by Thy help I'm come;
And I hope, by Thy good pleasure,
Safely to arrive at home.
Jesus sought me when a stranger,
Wandering from the fold of God;
He, to rescue me from danger,
Interposed His precious blood.

30 to grace how great a debtor

Daily I'm constrained to be!
Let Thy goodness, like a fetter,
Bind my wandering heart to Thee:
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it;
Prone to leave the God I love;
Here's my heart, O take and seal it;
Seal it for Thy courts above.

Robert Robinson.

1. We would see Je-sus-for the shadows lengthen Across this lit-tle landscape of our life;

[ocr errors]

We would see Jesus, our weak faith to strengthen, For the last weariness-the final strife. AMEN.

2 We would see Jesus-the great Rock Foundation,
Whereon our feet were set with sovereign grace;
Not life, nor death, with all their agitation,
Can thence remove us, if we see His face.
3 We would see Jesus - other lights are paling,
Which for long years we have rejoiced to see:
The blessings of our pilgrimage are failing,

We would not mourn them, for we go to Thee.
4 We would see Jesus-this is all we're needing,
Strength, joy, and willingness come with the sight;
We would see Jesus, dying, risen, pleading,
Then welcome day, and farewell mortal night!

263 Olmutz. S. M.


1. Grace! 'tis a charming sound!

Anna B. Warner.


Harmonious to mine ear!


Heav'n with the echo shall re-sound, And all the earth shall hear. A - MEN.

2 Grace first contrived a way

To save rebellious man;

And all the steps that grace display,
Which drew the wondrous plan.

3 Grace led my roving feet

To tread the heavenly road;
And new supplies each hour I meet,
While pressing on to God.

Philip Doddridge.

264 Portuguese Hymn. 11s.


1. How firm a foun-da-tion, ye saints of the Lord, Is laid for your faith in His

excellent word! What more can He say, than to you He hath said,-To you, who for

ref-uge to Je-sus have fled? To you, who for ref-uge to Je-sus have fled? A-MEN.

2 "Fear not, I am with thee, O be not dismayed,

For I am thy God, I will still give thee aid;

I'll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand,
Upheld by my gracious, omnipotent hand.

3 "When through the deep waters I call thee to go,
The rivers of sorrow shall not overflow;
For I will be with thee thy trouble to bless,
And sanctify to thee thy deepest distress.

4 "When through fiery trials thy pathway shall lie,
My grace, all-sufficient, shall be thy supply;
The flame shall not hurt thee; I only design
Thy dross to consume, and thy gold to refine.

5 "E'en down to old age all my people shall prove
My sovereign, eternal, unchangeable love;
And then, when gray hairs shall their temples adorn,
Like lambs they shall still in my bosom be borne.

6 "The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose,

I will not-I will not desert to his foes;

That soul-though all hell should endeavor to shake,
I'll never-no never, no never forsake!"

George Keith.

3 I rest my soul on Jesus,
This weary soul of mine;
His right hand me embraces,
I on His breast recline.
I love the name of Jesus,
Emmanuel, Christ, the Lord;
Like fragrance on the breezes

His name abroad is poured.

4 I long to be like Jesus,

Meek, loving, lowly, mild;
I long to be like Jesus,
The Father's holy Child:
I long to be with Jesus

Amid the heavenly throng,
To sing with saints His praises,
To learn the angels' song.

Horatius Bonar.


1 I saw the cross of Jesus,
When burdened with my sin;
I sought the cross of Jesus,
To give me peace within!
I brought my soul to Jesus,
He cleansed it in His blood;
And in the cross of Jesus

I found my peace with God.
2 Sweet is the cross of Jesus!
There let my weary heart
Still rest in peace unshaken,
Till with Him, ne'er to part;
And then in strains of glory

I'll sing His wondrous power,
Where sin can never enter,
And death is known no more.
Frederick Whitfield.
