4 Oh, shine on this benighted heart, With beams of
A taste of joys divine.
My dear Redeemer bore;
His sacred body tore!
His chief tormentors were ; Each of my crimes became a nail,
And upbelief the spear. 3 'Twere you that pulld the rengeance
down Upon his guiltless head; Break, break, my heart, oh, burst mine
Till melting waters flow,
In undissembled wo.
Surry. Carthage. 1 THE Lord of life, the Saviour dies, For mortal crimes, a sacrifice :
What love, what mercy, how divine !
Jesus, and can I call thee mine?-
Devoted to my Saviour's praise ;
How much I owe, how much I love. 3 Let humble, penitential wo,
With painful, pleasing anguish low;
Attracted by his fame,
An humble suppliant came.
His holy glance to meet,
Upon the Saviour's feet.
And sinking in despair,
And wip'd them with her hair.
Thy sins are all forgiv'n!"
C. M. Stennett.
A guilty rebel lies;
Presumes to lift his eyes.
Stay, stay the vengeful storm:
Should crush a feeble worm.
To pay the debt I owe,
In ceaseless currents flow.
To expiate my guilt ;
HYMN 92. L. M.
Antworth. Surry. Darwent.
Prayer of a Penitent. Ps. 6.
And stay his anger lest I die !
And let a mourning sinner live.
I feel the sad effects of sin ;
et 3 Oh, should I die depriv'd of thee!
What being else can succour me?
And sink it to the depths beneath.
The greatest enemies I know,
And will not let me long despair.
And when this transient life shall pass,
Ps. li. 9-13.
Turn from my sin thy searching eyes,
Within thy book recorded stand. 2 Give me a will to thine subdu'd,
A conscience pure, a soul renew'd;
An outcast from thy presence roam.
And sooth my troubled thoughts to peace. 4 So shall the souls, whom error's sway Has urg'd from thee, blest Lord, to stray,
From me thy heavenly precepts learn,
In me thy power exert-
The hardness from my heart.
A jealous, godly fear,
A pain to feel it near.
Of pride, or fond desire;
And quench the kindling fire.
The tender conscience give;
Pleyel's. Epiphany. Pastoral Duet.
Prostrate at thy feet I fall:
Frown not, lest I faint and die.
