Your heav'nly Father's love is sure,
And therefore, it is well.
And you shall sweetly tell,
I all to thee resign;
I mourn, but not repine.
When wisdom, truth, and love
And point to joys above ?
How needful ev'ry cross ;
I'll bless thy sacred náme ;
First Part. C. M.
'M not asham'd to own my Lord,
Nor to defend his cause;
The glory of his cross.
Nor let my hope be lost.
3 Firm, as his throne, his promise stands,
And he can well secure
Till the decisive hour.
Before his Father's face ;
The name of Jesus.
In a believer's ear!
And drives away his fear.
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 treas’ry, fillid
With boundless stores of grace.
My Prophet, Priest, and King ;
Accept the praise I bring.
And cold my warmest thought; But when I see thee as thou art,
I'll praise thee as I ought. 6 Till then, I would thy love proclaim
With ev'ry fleeting breath; And may the music of thy name Refresh
soul in death.
HYMN 11. Third Part. L. M.
Jesus the gift of God. 1 JESUS, my love, my chief delight
, I for Amid the shadows of the night,
Amid the bus'ness of the day.
Which I, thro' faith, have often seen?
Dispel the clouds that intervene.
To sinners weary and distrest ;
And certain pledge of all the rest. 4 Now I can say this gift is mine,
I'll tread the world beneath my feet; ;
the rich sinner's state. 5 This precious jewel let me keep,
And lodge it deep within my heart;
Jesus the only Saviour.
Whence all our hopes and comforts flow: Jesus, no other name, but thine,
Can save us from eternal woe.
Bewilder'd in a dubious road.
Ordain’d by everlasting love,
To the bright realms of endless day. 4. Safe lead us thro' this world of night,
And bring us to the blissful plains,
I love Jesus. 1 1 HE wond’ring world inquires to know
Why I should love my Jesus so: " What are his charms,” say they, “ above
“ The objects of a mortal love ?” 2 All-over glorious is my Lord,
He must be lov'd and yet ador'd;
Sure the whole earth would love him too. 3 The Love of Christ is strong as death,
He seal'd it with his latest breath;
No pains nor doubts can e'er deface. 4 What can destroy, what separate
A love so pure, so free, so great ?
The Offices of Christ.
That comes with truth and grace ; Jesus, thy spirit, and thy word,
Shall lead us in thy ways.
Who offer'd up his blood,
By pleading with our God.
3 We honour our exalted King;
How sweet are his commands ! He guards our souls from hell and sin,
By his almighty hands.
Who saves by glorious ways;
The Offices of Christ.
Of wisdom, love, and pow'r,
That angels ever bore ;
Of our salvation came;
No 'sacrifice beside.
My Conq’ror, and my King ;
Thy reigning grace I sing.
