And shew this people who thou art.” 4 He spoke, and lo, a fudden flame
Consum' the wood, the dust, the stone.
“ The LORD IS GOD, the LORD alone." 5 Like him we mourn an awful day,
When more for Baal than God appear;
And may the God of Israel hear. 6 LORD! If thy fervant fpeaks thy truth,
If he indeed is fent by thee ;
And let them thy salvation fee. 7 Now may thy Spirit's holy fire
Pierce ev'ry heart that hears thy word, . Consume each hurtful vain defire,
And make them know thou art the LORD.

1 Forth in thy strength, O LORD, we go,
Thy gospel to proclaim;
And glorify thy name,
In this appointed hour!
And let it come with pow'r,
To make their Saviour room :
Let faith by hearing come.
And while they thus receive,
To finners that believe.
G LORY to thee our CHRIST be giv'n,
For this thy gospel word,
SALVATION from the Lord.
2 Glory to thy great name alone,
That life and pow'r imparts ; Now, Lord, thy gospel-message own,
And graft it on their hearts. 3 3 Now let them feel the tidings true;
Grant to thy word success; Water it with thy heavonly dew,
And give the wish'd increase. 4 Savour of life! O let it prove,
And shew their fins forgiv'n ! Give them that faith which works by love,
Which sweetly leads to heav'n.
EP God the FATHER live
, Sinners from his free love derive
The ground of all their songs. 2 Ye faints, employ your breath In honour to the Son
Of an immortal strain ;
Salvation down to men.
4 While God the COMFORTER
Reveals our pardon'd fin,
The fame record within !
That seal the grace in heav'n,
Eternal glory giv'n.

Lo! we meet again in peace :
Meet in a more glorious place ! 2 When we once shall there arrive,
Ever happy we shall reign;
'Midst a host of perfect men. 3 There shall forrow not intrude,
Grief shall never there appear:
We shall stand, made free from fear. 4 Come, dear fellows, joyful, come;
Forward boldly let us press ;
Trust in Jesu's righteousness.
