6 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.

7 Glory to God, and praise, and love,
Be ever, ever given;
By saints below and saints above,
The Church in earth and heaven.

C. Wesley. 1740. a. 215 II. M.

1 LET earth and heaven combine,
Angels and men agree,
To praise in songs divine
The incarnate Deity:
To adore the all-atoning Lamb,
And bless the sound of Jesus' Name.

2 Jesus! transporting sound !
The joy of earth and heaven;
No other help is found,
No other name is given,
By which we can salvation have ;
But Jesus came the world to save.

3 For me and all mankind
The Lamb of God was slain :
My Lord His life resigned
For every soul of man:
Loving to all, He none passed by,
He would not have one sinner die.
4 0 unexampled Love!
0 all-redeeming grace!
How swiftly didst Thou move
* To save a fallen race!
What shall I do to make it known,
What Thou for all mankind hast done?

C. Wesley. 1756. a.

216 IH. M. 1 Join all the glorious names Of wisdom, love, and power, That ever mortals knew, That angels ever bore: All are too mean to speak His worth; Too mean to set my Saviour forth.

2. But 0, what gentle terms,
What condescending ways,
Doth our Redeemer use,
To teach His heavenly gracel
Mine eyes with joy and wonder see
What forms of love He bears for me.

3 Arrayed in mortal flesh,
He like an angel stands;
And holds the promises
And pardons in His hands:
Commissioned from His Father's throne,
To make His grace to mortals known.

4 Great Prophet of my God, My tongue would bless Thy Name; By Thee the joyful news Of our salvation came; The joyful news of sins forgiven, Of hell subdued, and peace with heaven. 5 Be Thou my Counsellor, My Pattern and my Guide; And through this desert land Still keep me near Thy side; 0 let my feet ne'er run astray, Nor rove, nor seek the crooked way! Watts. 1709. 21? 8, 7, 7. 1 ONE there is, above all others, Well deserves the name of Friend. His is love beyond a brother's,

Costly, free, and knows no end.
They who once His kindness prove,
Find it everlasting Love.

2. Which of all our friends, to save us,

Could or would have shed his blood?
But this Saviour died to have us

Reconciled in Him to God.
This was boundless Love indeed:
Jesus is a Friend in need.

3 When He lived on earth abaséd, Friend of sinners was His name: Now, above all glory raiséd, He rejoices in the same. Still He calls them brethren, friends, - . And to all their wants attends.

4 0 for grace our hearts to soften
Teach us, Lord, at length to love.
We, alas ! forget too often
What a Friend we have above.
But when home our souls are brought,
We will love Thee as we ought.

John Newton. 1779. 218 C. M.

1 How sweet the Name of Jesus sounds
In a believer's earl
It soothes his sorrows, heals his wounds,
And drives away his fear.

2. It makes the wounded spirit whole,
And calms the troubled breast;
'Tis manna to the hungry soul,
And to the weary rest.
3 Dear Name ! the Rock on which I build,
My Shield and Hiding-place;
My never-failing Treasury, filled
With boundless stores of grace.
