4 Now sinners, dry your tears,
Let hopeless sorrow cease,
And take the offer'd peace.
To sing that God is love.
And all his mercies prove,
To show that God is love.
Thunders his dreadful name;
The honors of the Lamb.
His counsels and designs,
His love supremely shines.
Through earth and heaven above,
That God the Lord, is love.
Only uncreated mind,
Wonders in thy nature meet,
With society complete.
Efficacious grace we sing,
Safely to thy kingdom bring;
Daily strengthen every grace,
And let glory crown the race.
Our spirits bless, and grant that we
May meet in paradise with thee.
Direct our wand'ring footsteps right;
Thy holy image on us trace. 3 Let fervent charity preside,
And all our thoughts and counsels guide;
We lift our spirits from the dust
2 “Within thy courts, O God, we stand
A firm, devoted, fearless band :
Our armor for a holy strife.
That wither like consuming fires,
And make the heart a desert place.
Protect us, till the tyrant yield
W winegrateful heart and joyful laye,
For thou hast made our cause thine own,
To thee, to thee alone, be praise.
We feel that this is holy ground;
For there alone may strength be found.
To rein each passion's wild career,
4 We come with voice of praise and prayer,
Then Father, hear us from above ! 0! make our cause thy constant care, And o'er it spread thy wing of love!
Songs of praises ever more;
While thy goodness we adore.
Every effort we have made ;
And the course of evil stay'd.
Thou, our counsellor and friend,
Still thine aid and blessing lend.
Guided by thy mighty hand,
POWER OF THE GOSPEL.
The power and promises of the Gospel to reform and
Let all the nations know,
To earth's remotest bound;
The sin-atoning Lamb;
Thro' all the land proclaim ;
The heritage above,
The gift of Jesus love;
of Jubilee is come ;
Your liberty receive,
And blest in Jesus live;
