2 How happy the man whose heart is set free,
The people that can be joyful in Thee !
And still they are talking of Jesus's grace.. 3 Their daily delight shall be in Thy name ;
They shall as their right Thy righteousness claim : Thy righteousness wearing, and cleansed by Thy
blood, Bold shall they appear in the presence of God. 4 For Thou art their boast, their glory and power,
And I also trust to see the glad hour,
The day of salvation, that lifts up my head. 5 For Jesus, my Lord, is now my defence ;
I trust in His word, none plucks me from thence :
Thy secret to me shall soon be made known;
U And let your joys be known ;
While ye surround His throne :
Who never knew our God;
May speak their joys abroad.
That all the earth surveys,
And calms the roaring seas;
Our Father and our Love ;
To carry us above.
3 There we shall see His face,
And never, never sin;
Drink endless pleasures in :
To that immortal state,
Should constant joys create.
Glory begun below :
From faith and hope may grow :
And every tear be dry : .
88,886. or L.M. J. F. Oberlin. 1830. n LORD, Thy heavenly grace impart,
And fix my frail inconstant heart;
To Thee, my God, to Thee !
On Thee, my God, on Thee !
Thou’rt present, Lord, in every place ;
To Thee, my God, to Thee ! 4 Renouncing every worldly thing,
Safe 'neath the covert of Thy wing,
10s & 119. C. WESLEY. 1742. (Y Father, my God, I long for Thy love; T O shed it abroad; send Christ from above ! My heart, ever fainting, He only can cheer ;
And all things are wanting, till Jesus is here. 2 () when shall my tongue be fill'd with Thy praise !
While all the day long I publish Thy grace,
Till sinners adore Thee, and own Thou art true. 3 Thy strength and Thy power I now can proclaim,
Preserved every hour through Jesus's Name; For Thou art still by me, and holdest my hand ;
No ill can come nigh me, by faith while I stand. 4 My God is my Guide : Thy mercies abound;
On every side they compass me round: Thou sav'st me from sickness, from sin dost retrieve,
[believe. And strength'nest my weakness, and bidst me 5 Thou holdest my soul in spiritual life, My foes dost control, and quiet their strife ; Thou rulest my passion, my pride and self-will :
To see Thy salvation, Thou bidst me."stand still!" 6 I stand, and admire Thine out-stretched arm;
I walk through the fire, and suffer no harm;
The world and the devil fall under my feet. 7 I wrestle not now, but trample on sin,
For with me art Thou, and shalt be within ;
L.M. 6 lines. C. Wesley. 1799.
For me, who Him to death pursued ?
597 tenen can it
Thine eye. the dung heart
2 Tis mystery all! The' Immortal dies !
Who can explore His strange design! In vain the first-born Seraph tries
To sound the depths of Love Divine. 'Tis mercy all ! let earth adore,
Let angel-minds inquire no more. 3 He left His Father's throne above;
(So free, so infinite His grace !) Emptied Himself of all but Love,
And bled for Adam's helpless race ; 'Tis mercy all, immense and free,
For, O my God, it found out me! 4 Long my imprisoned spirit lay
Fast bound in sin and nature's night; Thine eye diffused a quick’ning ray ;
I woke ; the dungeon flamed with light; My chains fell off, my heart was free,
I rose, went forth, and followed Thee. 5 No condemnation now I dread ;
Jesus, and all in Him, is mine! Alive in Him, my living Head,
And clothed in righteousness divine,
4-6s & 2-88. C. WESLEY. 1742.
In my behalf appears ;
For me to intercede,
His precious blood, to plead ;
3 Five bleeding wounds He bears,
Received on Calvary;
They strongly speak for me;
“ Nor let that ransomed sinner die !"
His dear Anointed One;
The presence of His Son :
And tells me I am born of God.
His pardoning voice I hear,
I can no longer fear;
L.M. C. Wesley. 1740.
And raised us into Abraham's sons ! 2 The people that in darkness lay,
In sin and error's deadly shade,
In Jesu's lovely face displayed.
And bared Thine arm in all our sight;
And claimed the outcasts as Thy right. 4 Thy single arm, Almighty Lord,
To us the great salvation brought,
That spake at first the world from nought. 5 For this the saints lift up their voice,
And ceaseless praise to Thee is given;
