5 Channel of the Father's grace,
Image of the Father's face,
Savior blest, incarnate Son,
With the Father Thou art One.

6 Glory to the Father be,
Glory, only Son, to Thee;
And, of equal power confest,
Glory to the Spirit blest.

Richard Mant. 1837. a.

226 Guter Hirte, willst Du nicht. 7, 8, 7.

1 WILt Thou not, my Shepherd true,
Spare Thy sheep, in mercy spare me?
Wilt Thou not, as shepherds do,
In Thine arms rejoicing bear me,
Bear me where all troubles cease,
Home to folds of joy and peace?

2 See how I have gone astray,
How earth's labyrinths oft mislead me;
Bring me back into Thy way,
In Thine own green pastures feed me:
Gather me within the fold,
Where Thy lambs Thy light behold.

3 With Thy flock I long to be,
With the flock to whom 'tis given,
Safe to feed, and, praising Thee,
Roam the happy plains of heaven:
Free from fear of sinful stain,
They can never stray again.

4 Lord, I here am sore beset,
Fears at every step confound me;
Lo! my foes have spread their net,
And with craft and might surround me:
Such their snares on every side,
Safe Thy sheep can ne'er abide.

5 Jesus, Lord! my Shepherd true,
0 from wolves Thy sheep deliver;
Help, as shepherds wont to do,
From their jaws preserve me ever.
Bid Thy trembling wanderer come
To his everlasting home.
Frances Elizabeth Coac. 1841.
Tr. Angelus Silesius. 1657.

227 7s. 1 JESUs, Lover of my soul,

Let me to Thy bosom fly,

While the nearer waters roll,
While the tempest still is high .

Hide me, O my Savior, hide,
Till the storm of life is past;

Safe into the haven guide;
0 receive my soul at last!

2 Other refuge have I none;

Hangs my helpless soul on Thee:

Leave, ah, leave me not alone,
Still support and comfort me !

All my trust on Thee is stayed,
All my help from Thee I bring:

Cover my defenceless head -
With the shadow of Thy wing.

3 Thou, O Christ, art all I want;

More than all in Thee I find:

Raise the fallen, cheer the faint,
Heal the sick, and lead the blind.

Just and holy is Thy Name;
I am all unrighteousness:

False and full of sin I am;
Thou art full of truth and grace.

4 Plenteous grace with Thee is found,
Grace to cover all my sin;
Let the healing streams abound:
Make and keep me pure within.
Thou of life the Fountain art,
Freely let me take of Thee? -
Spring Thou up within my heart,
Rise to all eternity.
... C. Wesley. 1740.

231 7, 6, 8. 1 JESUs, Name all names above,

Jesus, best and dearest,

Jesus, Fount of perfect love,
Holiest, tenderest, nearest;

Jesus, Source of grace completest,

Jesus tenderest, Jesus sweetest,
Jesus, Well of power divine, -
Make me, keep me, seal me Thine !

2 Thou didst call the prodigal;

Thou didst pardon Mary:

Thou whose words can never fall,
Love can never vary;

Thou whose wounds are ever pleading,

And Thy Passion interceding,
From my misery let me rise
To a home in Paradise!

3 Jesus, crowned with thorns for me,

Scourged for my transgresssion 1

Witnessing, through agony,
That Thy good confession;

Jesus, clad in purple raiment,

For my evils making payment;
Let not all Thy woe and pain,
Let not Calvary, be in vain

229 The Image of the Earthly. C. M.
1 O MEAN may seem this house of clay,
Yet ’t was the Lord's abode;
Our feet may mourn this thorny way,
Yet here Emmanuel trod.

2 This fleshly robe the Lord did wear; This watch the Lord did keep ; . These burdens sore the Lord did bear; - These tears the Lord did weep ! 2 & a 1 Jesus, Lover of my soul, Let me to Thy bosom fly, While the nearer waters roll, while the tempest still is high Hide me, O my Savior, hide, Till the storm of life is past; Safe into the haven guide; O receive my soul at last!

To make our earth divine;

And lift our life to Thine !

By Thee received and given: -

And we receive Thy heaven
