T'he power to preach thy word! Soften to flesh the stony heart,
And show thyself the Lord. 2 Disclose the suffering Son of God
Nail'd to the cross of woe, Bleeding beneath sin's heavy load,
And make our sorrows flow.
Wide as thy suffering pain;
With love our hearts inflame. 4 Work in us both to will and do,
And all our feelings sway;
Lest we be cast away.
And all its trifling toys;
That guilt and shame destroys.

What thou hast bonght so dear; Come, then, and in thy people's eyes
With all thy wounds appear: 4 Appear, as when of old confest
The suffering Son of God; And let them see thee in thy vest
But newly dipt in blood. 5 The hardness from our hearts remove,
Thou, who for sinners died; Show them the tokens of thy love,
Thy hands, thy feet, thy side. 6 Ready thou art the blood t’apply,
And prove the record true; And all thy wounds to sinners cry, “I suffer'd this for you.”

And life into the dead. 3 O that the world might taste and see
The riches of his grace!
All willing souls embrace.
His saving trutle proclaim; "Tis all my business here below,
To cry, behold the Lamb! 5 Happy, if with my latest breath
may but gasp his name; Preach him in life, and then in death Resign my soul to Him. 232. C. M. Wesley's Coll.,
Who did my soul redeem ;.
A life conceal'd in him!
My heart's.extreme desire;
And in his arms expire !
