How shall sin an entrance find ?

Jesu's is a spotless mind.
10 I shall nothing know beside

Jesus, and him crucified:
Perfectly to him be join'd:

Jesu's is a loving mind.
11 I shall triumph evermore,

Gratefully my God adore;
God so good, so true, so kind;

Jesu's is a thankful mind.
12 Lowly, loving, meek, and pure,

I shall to the end endure;
Be no more to sin inclin'd;

Jesu's is a constant mind. 13 I shall fully be restor’d To the image of my

Lord ;
Witnessing to all mankind,
Jesu's is a perfect mind.

Broadmead.] HYMN 597. 6 lines 8's. 1 ESUS, the gift divine I know,

That living water now bestow,

Thy Spirit and thyself on me:
Thou, Lord, of life the fountain art,

Now let me find thee in my heart ! 2'Thee let me drink, and thirst no more

For drops of finite happiness :
Spring up, o Well, in heavenly power,

In streams of pure, perennial peace ;
In joy that none can take away,

In life, which shall for ever stay. 3 Father, on me the grace bestow,

Unblameable before thy sight,

Whence all the streams of mercy flow;

Mercy thy own supreme delight,
To me, for Jesu's sake impart,

And plant thy nature in my heart. 4 Thy mind throughout my life be shown,

While list’ning to the wretches' cry,
The widows' and the orphans' groan,

On mercy's wings I swiftly fly
The poor and helpless to relieve,

My life, my all for them to give.
5 Thus may I show the Spirit within,

Which purges me from every stain, Unspotted from the world and sin,

My faith's integrity maintain; The truth of my religion prove, By perfect purity and love. Euphrates.] HYMN 598. P. M. 1 VATHER, see this living clod,

of

See ry soul, the breath of God,

Doth after God aspire ;
Let it still to heaven ascend,

Till I my principle rejoin;
Blended with my glorious end,

And lost in love divine !
2 Lord, if thou from me hast broke

The power of outward sin ;
Burst this Babylonish yoke,

And make me free within ;
Bid my inbred sin depart,

And I thy utmost word shall prove,
Upright both in life and heart,

And perfected in love. 3 God of all-sufficient grace,

My God in Christ thou art :

Bid me walk before thy face,

Till I am pure in heart:
Till transform'd by faith divine,

I gain that perfect love unknown,
Bright in all thine image shine,

By putting on thy Son.
4 Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,

In council join again,
To restore thine image, lost

By frail, apostate man;
O might I thy form express,

Through faith begotten from above,
Stampt with real holiness,

And fill'd with perfect love!

Alfrelon.] HYMN 599. L. M.

THE voice that speaks Jehovah near,

;

O might it now my Lord proclaim,

And fill my soul with holy shame! 2 Asham'd I must for ever be,

Asham'd the God of love to see,
If saints and prophets hide their face,
And angels tremble while they gaze!

Pastoral Hymn.] HYMN 600. 6 lines 8's.

AY to thy hand, O God of Grace !

See at thy feet, of all the race

The chief, the vilest sinner see; And let me all thy mercy prove,

Thine utmost miracle of love. 2 Speak, and a holy thing and clean

Shall strangely be brought out of me; My Ethiop soul shall change her skin,

Redeem'd from all iniquity;

I, even I, shall then proclaim

The wonders wrought by Jesu's name. 3 Thee I shall then for ever praise,

In spirit and in truth adore: While all I am declares thy grace,

And born of God, I sin no more : Thy pure and heavenly nature share, And fruit unto perfection bear.

ON THE DEATH OF A WIDGW.

Holstein.] HYMN 601. 8 lines 8's.
1
G
VIVE glory to Jesus our Head,

With all that encompass his throne; A widow, a widow indeed,

A mother in Israel is gone! The winter of trouble is past ;

The storms of affliction are o'er ; Her struggle is ended at last,

And sorrow and death are no more. 2 The soul has o’ertaken her mate,

And caught him again in the sky : Advanc'd to her holy estate,

And pleasure that never shall die : Where glorified spirits, by sight,

Converse in their happy abode ; As stars in the firmament bright,

And pure as the angels of God. 3 Behold! what a triumph is there,

Where all in his praises agree;
His beautiful character bear,

And shine with the glory they see!
The glory of God and the Lamb,

(While all in the ecstasy join,) Darts into their spiritual frame,

And gives the enjoyment divine.

4 In loud hallelujahs they sing,

And harmony echoes his praise : When, lo! the celestial King

Pours out the full light of his face ; The joy, neither angel nor saint

Can bear, so ineffably great; But lo! the whole company faint,

And heaven is found at his feet.

FOR THE MAHOMETANS.

Pastoral Hymn.) HYMN 602. 6 lines 8's. 1 UN of unclouded Righteousness,

,

A sad, benighted world to bless,

Which now in sin and error lies, Wrapt in Egyptian night profound,

With chains of hellish darkness bound. 2 The smoke of the infernal cave,

Which half the Christian world o’erspread, Disperse, thou heavenly Light, and save

The souls by that Impostor led, The Arab thief, as Satan bold,

Who quite destroy'd thy Asian fold. 3 O might the Blood of Sprinkling cry

For those who spurn the sprinkled bloodt ; Assert thy glorious Deity!

Stretch out thy arm, thou triune God; The Unitarian fiend expel,

And chase his doctrine back to hell. 4 Come, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,

Thou Three in One, and One in Three,
Resume thy own, for ages lost,

Finish the dire apostacy ;
Thy universal claim maintain,
And Lord of the creation reign!
