3. Hearts of Stone.

1 HEARTS of stone, relent, relent,
Break, by Jesus' cross subdued;
See his body, mangled-rent,

Cover'd with a gore of blood,
Sinful soul, what hast thou done!
Murder'd God's eternal Son.

2 Yes, our sins have done the deed,

Drove the nails that fix'd him there;
Crown'd with thorns his sacred head,

Pierced him with a soldier's spear;
Made his soul a sacrifice,
For a sinful world he dies.

3 Will you let him die in vain,

Still to death pursue your Lord;
Open tear his wounds again,

Trample on his precious blood? No! with all my sins I'll part, Savior, take my broken heart.

4. Bartimeus.

1 "MERCY, O thou son of David!" Thus the blind Bartimeus pray'd; "Others by thy word are saved, Now to me afford thine aid."

2 Many for his crying chid him,

But he call'd the louder still; Till the gracious Savior bid him, "Come, and ask me what you will."

3 Money was not what he wanted,

Though by begging used to live;
But he ask'd, and Jesus granted

Alms which none but he could give.

4"Lord, remove this grievous blindness, Let my eyes behold the day!" Straight he saw, and won by kindness, Follow'd Jesus in the way.

5 Now, methinks, I hear him praising,
Publishing to all around;
Friends, is not my case amazing?
What a Savior I have found!

6"Oh! that all the blind but knew him, And would be advised by me! Surely they would hasten to him,

He would cause them all to see."
