I need not fear my foes,
I need not yield to care,
I need not sink beneath my woes,
In my Redeemer's name,
Through Him, unworthy as I am,

than I.-Ps. 61, 2.
OCK of ages,cleft for me,
From Thy wounded side which flowed,
Cleanse me from its guilt and power.

Let me hide myself in Thee!
389 To lay hold upon the hope set
before us.-Heb. 6, 18.

Let me to Thy bosom fly,
2 Other refuge have I none;
I am all
Vile, and full of sin, I am,
Thou art full of truth and grace.
4 Plenteous grace with Thee is found,
Let the healing streams abound,
Spring Thou up within my heart,
390 They shall look on Him whom they
pierced.-John 19, 37.
THOU who hast redeemed of old, And bidst me of Thy strength lay hold,
And be at peace with Thee;
Help me Thy benefits to own,
And make me know what Thou hast O dying Lamb, for me!
2 Vouchsafe the eye of faith to see The Man transfixed on Calvary,
To know Thee, who Thou art,The one eternal God and true! And let the sight affect, subdue,
And break my stubborn heart. 3 Lover of souls, to rescue mine, Reveal the charity divine,
That suffered in my stead; That made Thy soul a sacrifice
And closed in death those gracious
And bowed that sacred head.
4 The veil of unbelief remove,
391 Joy shall be in heaven over one
sinner that repenteth-Luke 15, 7. HO can describe the joys that rise Through all the courts of Paradise.
To see a prodigal return,
To see an heir of glory born?
2 With joy the Father doth approve The fruit of His eternal love;
The Son with joy looks down and sees
3 The Spirit takes delight to view
392 Come unto Me..
and I will give
you rest.-Matt. 11, 28.
1 "COME unto Me, ye weary come!
Ye heavy-laden, cease to roam!
I will refresh the weary breast, And give the labouring spirit rest." 2 Sweet word! it calms my troubled soul
It bids my sorrows cease to roll;
3 Here at Thy feet, tis good to be,
393 God was in Christ, reconciling the
world unto Himself.-2 Cor. 5, 19. EAREST of all the names above, My Jesus and my God,
Who can resist Thy heavenly love,
2 Tis by the merits of Thy death
Tis by Thine interceding breath The Spirit dwells with men. 3 Till God in human flesh I see,
My thoughts no comfort find;
4 But if Immanuel's face appear,
394 We love Him, because He first
loved us.-1 John 4, 19.
1 LORD, when my thoughts delighted
2 Guilty and weak, to Thee I fly,
And let my glad obedience prove
395 What things were gain to me, I
counted loss for Christ.-Phil. 3,7.
O more, my God, I boast no more
2 Now, for the love I bear His name,
3 Yes, and I must and will esteem
396 Present your bodies a living sacri
fice.-Rom. 12, 1.
Aso mean a gift reward?
ND will the eternal King
That offering, Lord, with joy we bring Which Thine own hand prepared.
2 We own Thy various claims, And to Thine altar move,
The willing victims of Thy grace,
The sacrifice inflame;"
So shall a grateful odour rise
Through our Redeemer's name.
397 I have said that I would keep Thy
words.-Ps 119, 57.
1 THOU art my portion, O my God: Soon as I know Thy way,
My heart makes haste to obey Thy word,
2 I choose the path of heavenly truth,
3 The testimonies of Thy grace
4 If once I wander from Thy path,
Then turn my feet to Thy commands, And trust Thy pardoning grace.
