OO 4-6s. & 2-8s.
COME, O Thou Mighty Lord!
2 Claim for Thy lawful right
The souls before Thee bowed;
From Satan's power to God,
3 In this accepted hour
A gracious token show;
And groan ourselves to know,
4 Gather the outcasts in,
Who feel their guilty load;
And point them to Thy blood:
(340) L.M. H. Moee.
Altered by John Wesi.kt. 1739.
FATHER, if justly still we claim
And crown with living fire our head.
Our claim admit, and from above
Of holiness the Spirit shower,
And zeal, and unity, and power.
The Spirit of convincing speech,
Such as may every conscience reach,
The Spirit of refining fire,
Searching the inmost of the mind,
To purge all fierce and foul desire,
The Spirit of faith, in this Thy day,
Tread down its strength, o'erturn its sway,
The Spirit breathe of inward life,
Which in our hearts Thy laws may write;
Then grief expires, and pain, and strife;
ON all the earth Thy Spirit shower;
Like mighty wind, or torrent fierce,
Let it opposers all o'errun;
That faith and love may make all one.
Yea, let Thy Spirit in every place
Its richer energy declare;
The kingdom of Thy Christ prepare.
Grant this, O holy God, and true!
The ancient seers Thou didst inspire;
Descend, and crown us now with fire!
(841) 6-7s. C. Wesley. 1745.
LAMB of God, who bear'st away
While we may acceptance find,
2 Thou Thy messengers hast sent,
Joyful tidings to proclaim,
Know salvation in Thy Name,
3 Jesus, roll away the stone;
Good Physician, show Thine art:
Break the unbelieving heart:
4 Let Thy dying love constrain
Those who disregard Thy frown;
Bring the pride of sinners down;
7s & 6s. Luther. (1852.)
SAVIOUR, none like Thee can teach,
And heavenly light afford.
2 Speak to us from lips of love,
And give the listening ear;
That Thou art present here.
glan's rebellious heart to smite,)
3 In Thy Person we descry
Redemption's glorious Lord;
The joys Thy words afford,—
Thou Son and sent of God.
(633) 4-6s & 2-8s. C. Wesley. 1830.
SAVIOUR, we know Thou art
Thy people saved below,
From every sinful stain, Shall multiply and grow, If Thy command ordain; And one into a thousand rise, And spread Thy praise through earth and skies.
In many a soul, and mine,
Thou hast displayed Thy power,
Ten thousand thousand more;
Before Reading the Scriptures.
CM. C.wesley. 1740.
COME, Holy Ghost, our hearts inspire,
Come, Holy Ghost, (for moved by Thee
The prophets wrote and spoke,)
Unseal the sacred Book.
Expand Thy wings, celestial Dove,
Brood o'er our nature's night:
And let there now be light.
God, through Himself, we then shall know,
If Thou within us shine;
The depths of love divine.
(339) CM. C.wesley. 1740.:
FATHEK of all, in whom alone
2 While in Thy word we search for Thee,
(We search with trembling awe !)
3 Now let our darkness comprehend
The Light that shines so clear;
4 Before us make Thy goodness pass,
Which here by faith we know;
