6. Looking to Jesus,
7. Seeking for a Blessing. 1 Jesus, lover of my soul,
1 Son of God, thy blessing grant, Let me to thy bosom fly,
Still supply my ev'ry want; While the billows near me roll,
Tree of life, thine influence give, While the tempest still is high,
Nourish me, and bid me live. Hide me, O, my Saviour, hide
Tend'rest branch, alas.! am l; 'Till the storm of life be past;
Without thee I droop and die,
Weak as helpless infancy;
O confirm my soul in thee!
2 Unsustain'd by thee, I fall; 2 Other refuge have I none;
Send the strength for which I call :, Helpless hangs my soul on thee;
Weaker than a bruised reed,
Help I ev'ry moment need.
All my hopes on thee depend;
Love me, save me to the end !
Give me thy sustaining grace,
Take the everlasting praise.
8. Seeking for a Blessing. 3 Jesus, thou art all I want;
1 Lord, we come before thee now Boundless love in thee I find !
At thy feet we humbly bow: Raise the fallen, cheer the faint,
0, do not our suit disdain! Heal the sick, and lead the blind.
Shall we seek thee, Lord, in vain ? Just and holy is thy name:
Lord, on thee our souls depend;
In compassion now descend;
Fill our hearts with thy rich grace. Thou art full of truth and grace,
Tune our lips to sing thy praise. 4 Plenteous grace with thee is found, 2 In thine own appointed way
Grace to pardon all my sin; Now we seek thee, here we stay; Lot the healing streams abound; Lord, we know not how to go,
Make and keep me pure within. 'Till a blessing thou bestow.
Freely let me take of thee; That may joy and peace afford;
Full salvation to each heart.

9. In Darkness.
All their sins are wash'd away: I Once I tho't my mountain strong, They shall stand in God's great day. Firmly fixed, no more to move;
With them number'd may we be, Then my Saviour was my song,
Here, and in eternity. Then my soul was fill'd with love; 3 They produce the fruits of grace; Those were happy, golden days, In the works of righteousness;
Sweetly spent in prayer and praise. They are harmless, meek, and mild, 2 Little then myself I knew,
Holy, humble, undefild.
With them number'd may we be, Now I feel my sins renew;
Here, and in eternity. Now I feel the stormy hour! 4 They are lights upon the earth, Sia has put my joys to flight; Children of a heav'nly birth; Sin has turned my day to night. One with God, with Jesus one;
Glory in them is begun. 3 Saviour, shine and cheer my soul,
With them number'd may we be,
Here, and in eternity.

Christ, the well-beloved Son; Be my hopë, my confidence.
Lamb of God, for sinners slain
Saviour of offending man. 2 Send thy light and truth to guide;
Glory be to God on high,
God, whose glory fills the sky.

1 Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, Praise shall all my powers employ.
One in three, and three in one,
As by the celestial fost, 11. Adoption.
Let thy will on earth be done. 1 Blessed are the sons of God'; Praise by all to thee be given, They are bought with Jesus' blood :
Glorious Lord of earth and heav'n. They are ransomed from the grave; 2 If so poor a worm as I Life eternal they shall have. With them buniber'd may we be,
May to thy great glory live, Here, and in eternity.
All my actions sanctify, [ceive;
All my thoughts and words reThey are justifi'd by grace; Claim me for thy service-claim,, They enjoy the Saviour's peace ; All I have, and all I am.

17. Crucifixion. Come, trembling sinner, in whose A thousand thoughts revolve:
1 Behold the Saviour of mankind,
Nail'd to the shameful tree! Come, with your guilt and fear oppress'd,
How vast the love that him inclin'd, And make this last resolve:
Tobleed and die for me! (shakes, “I'll go to Jesus, though my sin
Hark! how he groans, while nature Should boundless depths disclose;
And earth's strong pillars bend; I see his courts, I'll enter in,
The temple's veil in sunder breaks, Whatever may oppose.
The solid marbles rend. 2.4 Prostrate I'll lie before his throne, 2 'Tis done! the precious ransom's
And there my guilt confess; Receive my soul, he cries; (paid, I'll tell him I'm a wretch undone See where he bows his sacred head, Without his sovereign grace.
He bows his head and dies. Perhaps he will admit my plea, But soon o'er hell he reigns again
Perhaps he'll hear my prayer; In majesty divine; But if I perish, I will pray,
O Lamb of God, was ever pain, And perish only there."
Was ever love like thine!
