Long-suffering, merciful, and kind,
His everlasting word.
Should turn, repent, and live;
He freely doth forgive.
And brings His wanderer home;
My Jesus, quickly come.
My one desire, comply :
And on Thy bosom die.) 537 (80) a. L.M. ; CENNICK. 1743.
ESUS, my All, to heaven is gone,
The narrow way, till Him I view. 2 The way the holy prophets went
The road that leads from banishment-
I'll go ; for all His paths are peace. 3 This is the way I long have sought,
And mourn'd because I found it not:
Because I could not cease from sin.
I sinned and stumbled but the more ;
5 Lo! glad I come; and, Thou, blest Lamb!
Shalt take me to Thee as I am :
Nothing but love shall I receive.
4-85 & 2-6s. C. WESLEY. 1749. STILL, Lord, I languish for Thy grace,
Reveal the beauties of Thy face,
The middle wall remove :
Fill all my soul with love!
Thy help is always nigh :
Or at Thy feet I die. .
I cannot love my God ?
Witness that streaming blood !
And make me love again :
4-85 & 2-6s. C. Wesley. 1749.
3 To Tham I thus ve my God in me;
Turn into flesh my heart of stone,
Turn into flesh my heart.
Thou only canst remove
And mould it into love.
In this cold heart of mine :
And make it all divine.
I plead what Thou hast done!
And break my heart of stone,
My Ransom and my Peace;
The Lord my Righteousness. 540 (453) 4-85 & 2-6s. O. WESLEY, 1746.
LOVE Divine, how sweet Thou art !
All taken up by Thee?
The love of Christ to me!
The first-born sons of light
Desire in vain its depths to see ;
The length, and breadth, and height. 3 God only knows the love of God : O that it now were shed abroad
In this poor stony heart !
Be mine this better part !
Be this my happy choice : My only care, delight, and bliss, y joy, my heaven on earth, be this,
To hear the Bridegroom's voice i 5 O that I could with favoured John, Recline my weary head upon
The dear Redeemer's breast;
My everlasting rest.

L.M. 6 lines. C. WESLEY. 1747. TATHER of Jesus Christ, the Just,
T My Friend and Advocate with Thee,
In Him who lov'd and died for me :
And in my heart reveal Thy Son. 2 If, drawn by Thine alluring grace,
My want of living faith I feel,
What flesh and blood can ne'er reveal,
And call my darkness into day. 3 The gift unspeakable impart ;
Command the light of faith to shine ;
To shine in my dark drooping heart,
And fill me with the life divine :
O God, let there be faith in me! 542
C.M. C. Wesley. 1747. MHOU hidden God, for whom I groan,
1 Till Thou Thyself declare,
Regard a sinner's prayer !
Unpurged and unforgiven ;
As far as hell from heaven.
On Thee for faith I call;
And raise me from my fall.
Thou only canst remove;
Thy Deity of Love.
That grace may let me go;
I wait the truth to know."
Thou wilt Thy light afford :
The prisoner of the Lord.
But hate the tyrant's chain ;
Nor let me cry in vain !
The covenant blood apply,
And all my sins shall die.
