3 Assure my conscience of her part

In the Redeemer's blood;
And bear Thy witness with my heart

That I am born of God,
4 Thou art the earnest of His love,

The pledge of joys to come:
And Thy soft wings, celestial Dove !
Will safe convey me home.

L.M. 307 will pour out my Spirit upon all

flesh 10

In all Thy plenitude of grace, Where'er the foot of man hath trod,

Descend on our apostate race. 2 Give tongues of fire and hearts of love

To preach the reconciling word;
Give power and unction from above,

Whene'er the joyful sound is heard. 3 Be darkness, at Thy coming, light;

Confusion, order in Thy path;
Souls without strength inspire with

might,
Bid mercy triumph over wrath.
4 O Spirit of the Lord!

prepare Al the round earth her God to meet; Breathe Thou abroad, like morning air,

Till hearts of stone begin to beat. 5 Baptize the nations; far and nigh The triumphs

of the cross record; The name of Jesus glorify,

Till every kindred call Him Lord. 6 God from eternity hath willed

All flesh shall His salvation see;
So be the Father's love fulfilled,
The Saviour's sufferings crowned

through Thee.

C.M. 308 Behold, I make all things 'new.

Rev. 21, 5.
SPIRIT of power and might, behold

;
Creator-Spirit, as of old,

Move on the formless void.

2 Give Thou the word—that healing

Shall quell the deadly strife, (sound And earth again, like Eden crowned,

Produce the tree of life. 3 If sang the morning stars for joy,

When nature rose to view, What strains will angels' harps employ

When Thou shalt all renew! 4 And if the sons of God rejoice

To hear a Saviour's name, How will the ransomed raise their voice,

To whom that Saviour came! 5 So every kindred, tongue, and tribe,

Assembling round the throne, Thy new creation shall ascribe To sovereign love alone.

L.M. 309 The Spirit of glory and of God

restēth upon you.--1 Peter 4, 14, 1

O shed Thy influence from above, And still from age to age inspire

Thy church with Pentecostal fire. 2 In every clime, by every tongue,

Be God's amazing glory sung,
Let all the listening earth be taught

The acts our great Redeemer wrought. 3 Unfailing Comfort! heavenly Guide!

Still o'er Thy favoured church preside still may mankind Thy blessings prove Spirit of ,

THE HOLY TRINITY.

TE give immortal praise
For all our comforts here

And better hopes above :
He sent His own eternal Son
To die for sins that man had done.

2 To God the Son belongs

Immortal glory too,
Who bought us with His blood

From everlasting woe:
And now on high He lives and reigns,

And sees the fruit of all His pains. 8 To God the Spirit's name

Immortal worship give,
Whose new creating power
Makes the dead sinner live:
His work completes the great design,
And fills the soul with joy divine.

Almighty God ! to Thee
Be endless honours done,
The undivided Three,
And the mysterious One:
Where reason fails with all her powers,
There faith prevails and love adores.

L.M. 311 There are Three that bear record

in heaven.-1 John 5, 7. 1

Our Prophet, Priest, Redeemer, Lord!
Before Thy throne we sinners bend:

To us Thy saving grace extend. 3 Eternal Spirit ! by whose breath The soul is raised from sin and death; Before Thy throne we sinners bend : To us Thy quickening power extend. 4 Jehovah ! Father, Spirit, Son !

Mysterious Godhead! Three in One!
Before Thy throne we sinners bend:
Grace, pardon, life to us extend !

C.M. 312 The Lord which is, and which wns,

and which is to come.--Rev. 1, 8. 1 MAKER, Ypholder, Ruler ! Thee

Who art, and wast, and art to be,

God blessed evermore.

2 Redeemer, Prophet, Priest, and King!

Appointed Judge of all ! Let ransomed souls Thy triumphs sing,

Thy foes before Thee fall,

Thy glorious gifts impart :
From heaven descending like a dove,

Dwell Thou in every heart.

Let heaven and earth adore,
Thou art, Thou wast, and Thou shalt be
God blessed evermore.

mighty.-Rev. 4, 8. HEX, Holy Holy Lord God of Hosts, when heaven and

Out of darkness, at Thy word,
Issued into glorious birth :
All Thy works around Thee stood,
And Thine eye beheld them good,
While they sang with sweet accord,
Holy. Holy, Holy Lord !
2 Holy, Holy, Holy !-Thee,
One Jehovah evermore,
Father, Son, and Spirit, we,
Dust and ashes, would adore;

From that world by Thee redeemed,
Sing we here with glad accord,
Holy, Holy, Holy Lord !
3 Holy, Holy, Holy !-All
Heaven's triumphant choir shall sing,
While the ransomed nations fall
At the footstool of their King :
Then shall saints and seraphim,
Harps and voices, swell one hymn,
Blending in sublime accord,
Holy, Holy, Holy Lord !

come.-Rev. 4, 8. 1

God in Three Persons, Blessed Trinity. 2 Holy, Holy, Holy! all the saints adore

Thee, Casting down their golden crowns

around the glassy sea; Cherubim and seraphim falling down

before Thee, Who wast, and art, and evermore shalt

be.

hide Thee, Though the eye of sinful man Thy glory

may not see; Only Thou art holy: there is none beside

Thee Perfect in power, in love, and purity. Holy, Holy, Holy! Lord God Almighty! All Thy works shall praise Thy name, in

earth, and sky, and sea: Holy, Holy, Holy! Merciful and Mighty! God in Three Persons, Blessed Trinity!

as it were a new song

. , 3 IN 1 COW with angels round the throne,

Cherubim and seraphim,
And the church, which still is one,
Let us swell the solemn hymn:
Glory to the great I AM:

Glory to the Victim Lamb.
2 Blessing, honour, glory, might,

And dominion infinite,
To the Father of our Lord,
To the Spirit and the Word ;
As it was all worlds before,
Is, and shall be evermore.
