The bar of unbelief remove,
And enter every heart. 2 Shower down thy blessings from on high,
And write thy law within ;
And make an end of sin. 88
C. M. 1 YOME Holy Ghost, our hearts inspire Let us thine influence
prove; Source of the old prophetic fire,
Fountain of Life and Love. 2 Come, Holy Ghost, (for mov'd by thee,
The prophets wrote and spoke :) Unlock the truth, thyself the Key,
Unseal the sacred Book. 3 Expand thy wings, celestial Dove,
Brood o'er our nature's night; On our disorder'd spirits move,
And let there now be light. 4 God, thro' himself, we then shall know,
If thou within us shine;
The depths of love divine. 89 C. M.
NATHÈK of all, in whom alone 1 We live, and move, and breathe ; One bright, celestial ray dart down,
And cheer thy sons beneath. 2 While in thy word we search for thee,
(We search with trembling awe !) Open our eyes, and let us see
The wonders of thy law.
3 Now lat our darkness comprehend,
The light that shines so clear! Now the revealing Spirit send,
And give us ears to hear. 4 Before us make thy goodness pass,
Which here by faith we know; Let us in Jesus see thy face,
And die to all below.
C.M. 1 YOME, O thou weary pilgrim's friend,
And bring thy nature in;
And burn up every sin.
Let faith stretch out her hand; Fill every heart with peace and joy,
And bring us safe to land. w.s. & H. B. 91
I in thy temple wait:
Or at thy table meet.
I wait to learn thy will :
as Be still !
"Tis all I live to know;
And spread its praise below!

And breathe our wishes to thy throne; Remove our doubts and fears away,
And make thy great salvation known:
Most gracious Lord attend, And send deliverance from the skies,
Thy Holy Spirit send.
On sin and Satan tread;
And bruise the serpent's head. 3 O come, thou all-victorious Lord,
No longer now delay,
The crooked serpent slay: 4 Make bare thine arm, and give the blow,
Root out the hellish seed; O Lord avenge, &c. w. a. by H. B. & w. s.

L. M. 'A ", , :
Whose Spirit breathes the active Faith, like its Finisher and Lord,
To-day, as yesterday the same :
2 To thee our humble hearts aspire,
And ask the gift unspeakable; Increase in us the kindled fire,
In us the work of faith fulfil. 3 By faith we know thee strong to save;
(Save us, a present Saviour thou !) Whate'ér we hope, by faith we have,
Future and past subsisting now. 4 To híın that in thy name believes,
Eternal life with thee is given;
Pardon, and holiness, and heaven. 5 The things unknown to feeble sense,
Unseen by reason’s glimmering ray, With strong, commanding evidence,
Their heavenly origin display. 6 Faith lends its realizing light,
The clouds disperse, the shadows fly; Th' Invisible appears in sight,
And God is seen by mortal eye. w. 95 S. M.
COW can a sinner know
His sins on earth forgiven?
My name inscrib'd in heaven?,
With confidence we tell;
The signs infallible.
That he for us hath died,
And feel his blood apply'd ;
4 Exults our rising soul,
Disburthen'd of her load,
Of glory, and of God.
And know the things of God; The things which freely of his love
He hath on us bestow'd : 2 His Spirit to us he gave,
And dwells in us we know:
And all its fruits we show. 3 The meek and lowly heart
That in our Saviour was, To us his Spirit doth impart,
And signs us with his cross ; 4 Our nature's turn’d, our mind
Transform'd in all its powers; And both the Witnesses are join'd,
The Spirit of God with ours. 5 Whate'er our pardoning Lord
Commands, we gladly do;
We all his steps pursue: 6 His glory our design,
We live our God to please ; And rise, with filial fear divine,
To perfect holiness.

Whose love hath gently led me on,
