2oij (90) 8s. C. Wesley. 17G2.
Bong of Solomon. 1. 7.
THOU Shepherd of Israel, and mine,
I long to reside where Thou art:
Where all, who their Shepherd obey,
And screen'd from the heat of the day.
2 Ah! show me that happiest place,
The place of Thy people's abode,
And hang on a crucified God:
Thy passion and death on the tree,
To suffer and triumph with Thee.
3 'Tis there, with the lambs of Thy flock,
There only, I covet to rest,
Or rise to be hid in Thy breast:
And never a moment depart;
Eternally held in Thy heart.
231 (81) 4-7s. C.wesley. 1745.
SON of God, Thy blessing grant,
2 Tenderest branch, alas! am I,
O confirm my soul in Thee.
3 Unsustain'd by Thee, I fall;
ZuZ (194) 8s. Hart. 1759.
THIS God, is the God we adore,
And neither knows measure nor end.
Whose Spirit shall guide us safe home;
ZOO 4-8s. & 2-Gs. C. Wesley. 1749.
OTHOU, who hast redeem'd of old,
2 Out of myself for help I go,
Thy love my plea I make;
Give, for Thy mercy's sake.
3 Can'st Thou deny that love to me? Say, Thou incarnate Deity,
Thou Man of Sorrows, say! Thy glory why didst Thou enshrine In such a clod of earth as mine,
And wrap Thee in my clay?
4 Ancient of Days, why didst Thou come, And stoop to a poor virgin's womb,
Contracted to a span?
Flesh of our flesh why wast Thou made,
5 Love, only Love, Thy heart inclined,
Down from Thy throne above;
O Mystery of Love!
6 Because Thou lov'dst, and diedst for me,
And gladly to resign
And all Thy death be mine.
8s. & 7s. C. Wesley. 1744.
LIGHT of those whose dreary dwelling
Dissipate the clouds beneath:
In our deepest darkness rise,
Still we wait for Thine appearing;
Life and joy Thy beams impart,
Every poor benighted heart:
God hath for our ransomed race;
Come, and bring the gospel grace.
Save us in Thy great compassion,
O Thou mild, pacific Prince;
Give the pardon of our sins:
By Thy all-restoring merit,
Every weary, wandering spirit
8s. C. Wesley. 1744.
ALL glory to God in the sky,
Appear our Omnipotent Lord!
Didst stoop to redeem a lost race,
When Thou in our flesh didst appear,
All nature acknowledged Thy birth;
And heaven was opened on earth:
The world was united to bless
The Prince and the Author of peace.
O wouldst Thou again be made known,
Again in Thy Spirit descend,
A kingdom that never shall end!
And make the glad nations obey,
And bow the whole world to Thy sway.
Come then to Thy servants again,
Who long Thy appearing to know;
In mercy establish below:
And anger and hatred be o'er;
And discord afflict us no more.
5 No horrid alarum of war
Shall break our eternal repose;
Where Jesus's Spirit o'erflows:
We all shall in amity join;
And love with a passion like Thine.

HARK! the herald-angels sing
2 Joyful all ye nations rise,
3 Christ, by highest heaven adored,
4 Veil'd in flesh the Godhead see;
5 Hail! the heaven-born Prince of Peace I
Risen with healing in His wings.
6 Mild He lays His glory by,
7 Come, Desire of Nations, come,
