5 Revive thy dying churches, Lord !
And bid our drooping graces live;
A Saviour's blood alone can give. 353
Luke xxii, 19, 44; xxiii, 33.
In meek humility,
I will remember Thee.
My bread from heaven shall be;
And thus remember Thee!
Or there thy conflict see,
And not remember Thee?
And rest on Calvary,
I must remember Thee.
And all thy love to me!
Will I remember Thee.
8.7. Believers fed at the holy table. Ps. Ixxx, 1. Mark xiv, 22-24. 1 Cor. x, 16. 1 ISRAEL's Shepherd! guide me, feed me,
Through my pilgrimage below;
Where thy flock rejoicing go,
And forsake thy shelt'ring fold,
In the strength of nature bold.
Meekly kneeling, I implore;
Would I wander from Thee more:
In the wilderness to see
Spread for sinners, spread for me! 3 Here thy bounty still partaking,
In these signs of bread and wine,
I behold the Saviour mine:
In the shedding of his blood,
Sure and full for every good.
4[To his cross for refuge flying,
Arm thee for the strife within;
Learn the sinfulness of sin:
By his matchless love and pow'r;
Go in peace, and sin no more.”] 355
L. M. Seeking for the sweet pastures.
Song of Sol. i, 7, 8. 1 Cor. xi, 26. 1 Thou, whom my soul admires above
All earthly joy, and earthly love!
Where doth thy sweetest pasture grow. 2 Where is the shadow of that rock,
That from the sun defends thy flock?
Among them rest, among them sleep. 3 The footsteps of thy flock I see;
Thy sweetest pastures here they be;
Bought with thy wounds, and groans, and tears. 4 His dearest flesh He makes my food,
And bids me drink his richest blood; Here, to this feast, my soul will come, 'Till my Beloved lead me home.
C. M. Grateful remembrance of Christ's death.
Song of Sol. i, 4. 1 Cor. xi, 23-25. 1 IF HUMAN kindness meets return,
And owns the grateful tie;
To feel a friend is nigh;
The gratitude we owe
Our more than orphan's woe?
Those pangs He would not flee,
“ Meet, and remember Me.” 4 Remember Thee! thy death, thy shame,
Our sinful hearts to share!
But his recorded there!
L.M. Welcoming new Communicants.
Gen. xxiv, 31.
Enter in Jesu's precious name;
2. Those joys which earth can not afford
We hope in fellowship to prove,
Together bound in mutual love.
We'll make our joys and sorrows known,
And count a brother's cares our own. 4 Once more our welcome we repeat,
Receive assurance of our love;
1 Our Helper, God! we bless thy name,
Whose power and grace are still the same; The tokens of thy friendly care
Commence, and crown, and close the year. 2 Amidst ten thousand snares we stand,
Supported by thy guardian hand;
