gations, “that they cannot procure our Hymn
We exhort you to sing with the spirit and with the understanding also: and thus may the high praises of GOD be set up from East to West, from North to South: and we shall be happily instrumental in leading the devotion of thousands, and
shall rejoice to join you in time and eternity.
We are, *
Your faithful Pastors in Christ,
ROBERT R. ROBERTs.
l O FOR a thousand tongues to sing • My great Redeemer's praise! The glories of my God and King, The triumphs of his grace!
2 My gracious Master, and my God,
Assist me to proclaim,
To spread through all the earth abroad
The honours of thy Name.
3 Jesus!—the Name that charms our fears,
That bids our sorrows cease;
'Tis music in the sinner's ears,
'Tis life, and health, and peace.
6 Hear him, ye deaf; his praise, ye dumb,
Your loosen’d tongues employ;
Ye blind, behold your Saviour come,
And leap, ye lame, for joy.
1 LOOK unto Him, ye nations; own
Your God, ye fallen race;
Look, and be sav'd through faith alone :
Be justified by grace.
2 See all your sins on Jesus laid:
The Lamb of God was slain:
His soul was once an offering made
For every soul of man.
3 Awake from guilty nature’s sleep,
And Christ shall give you light;
Cast all your sins into the deep,
And wash the AEthiop white.
4 With me, your chief, ye then shall know,
Shall feel your sins forgiven;
Anticipate your heaven below,
And own that love is heaven.
| OME, ye sinners, poor and needy,
Weak and wounded, sick and sore,
Jesus ready stands to save you,
Full of pity, love, and power;
He is able,
He is willing, doubt no more.
2 Now, ye needy, come and welcome,
God's free bounty glorify;
True belief and true repentance,
Every grace that brings you nigh.
Come to Jesus Christ and buy.
3 Let not conscience make you linger:
Nor of fitness fondly dream :
All the fitness he requireth
Is to feel your need of him;
This he gives you,
'Tis the Spirit's glimm'ring beam.
4 Come, ye weary, heavy-laden,
Bruis'd and mangled by the fall,
If you tarry till you’re better,
You will never come at all,
Not the righteous,
Sinners Jesus came to call.
5 Agonizing in the garden,
Lo! your Maker prostrate lies!
On the bloody tree behold him!
Hear him cry before he dies,
“It is finished ”
Sinners, will not this suffice 2
6 Lo! th’ incarnate God ascending.
Pleads the merit of his blood;
Venture on him, venture freely;
Let no other trust intrude:
None but Jesus
Can do helpless sinners good.
7 Saints and angels join’d in concert,
Sing the praises of the Lamb,
While the blissful seats of heaven
Sweetly echo with his name:
Sinners here may do the same.
t OME, sinners, to the Gospel feast.
Let every soul be Jesu's guest!
Ye need not one be left behind,
For God hath bidden all mankind.
2 Sent by my Lord, on you I call !
The invitation is to all :
Come, all the world! come, sinner, thou!
All things in Christ are ready now.
Come, all ye souls by sin oppress'd,
Ye restless wand'rers after rest;
Ye &. and maim’d, and halt, and blind.
In Christ a hearty welcome find.
4 My message as from God receive ;
Ye all may come to Christ and live :
Q let his love your hearts constrain,
Nor suffer him to die in vain
5 His love is mighty to compel;
His conqu'ring love consent to feel:
Yield to his love's resistles power,
And fight against your God no more.
G See him set forth before your eyes,
That precious bleeding sacrifice!
His offer'd benefits embrace,
And freely now be sav'd by grace
7 This is the time, no more delay!
This is the acceptable day;
Come in this moment at his call,
And live for him who died for all.
1 INNERS, turn, why will ye die
God, your Maker, asks you why ’
God, who did your being give,
Made you with himself to live;
He the fatal cause demands,
Asks the work of his own hands,
Why, ye thankless creatures, why
Willye cross his love, and die?
