Those ruins shall be built again,

And all that dust shall rise. 3 The Lord shall raise Jerusalem,

And stand in glory there; Nations shall bow before his name,

And kings attend with fear.
4 He sits a sov'reign on his throne,

With pity in his eyes;
He hears the dying pris'ners groan,

And sees their sighs arise.
5 He frees the souls condemn’d to death;

And when his saints complain,
It shan't be said that praying breath

Was ever spent in vain.
6 This shall be known when we are dead,

And left on long record,-
That ages yet unborn, may read,

And trust, and praise the Lord. WATTS.

HYMN 56. S. M. St. Thomas. [*]

Prayer for the Spirit. 1 Come, Holy Spirit! come,

Let thy bright beams arise;
Dispel the sorrow from our minds

The darkness from our eyes.
2 Convince us of our sin,

Then lead to Jesus' blood;
And to our wond'ring view reveal

The secret love of God.
3 Revive our drooping faith;

Our doubts and fears remove;
And kindle in our breasts the flame

Of never dying love.
4 'Tis thine to cleanse the heart-

To sanctify the soul-
To pour fresh life in every part,

And new-create the whole.
5 Dwell, Spirit! in our hearts;

Our minds from bondage free;
Then shall we know, and praise, and love,

The Father, Son, and Thee. HART.

HYMN. 57. L. M. Portugal. [*]

Social Worship. 1 Where two or three, with sweet accord, Obedient to their sov'reign Lord,

Meet to recount his acts of grace, And offer solemn prayer and praise; 2 “There,” says the Saviour “will I be, “Amidst this little company; “To them unveil my smiling face, "And shed my glories round the place.” 3 We meet at thy command, dear Lord! Relying on thy faithful word; Now send thy Spirit from above, Now fill our hearts with heavenly love. STENNET.

HYMN 58. S. M. St. Thomas. [b*]

Faith in Christ our Sacrifice.
1 Not all the blood of beasts,

On Jewish altars slain,
Could give the guilty conscience peace,

Or wash away the stain.
2 But Christ, the heav'nly Lamb,

Takes all our sins away;
A sacrifice of nobler name,

And richer blood than they.
3 My faith would lay her hand

On that dear head of thine,
While like a penitent I stand

And there confess my sin.
4. My soul looks back to see

The burdens thou dist bear,
While hanging on the cursed tree,

And hopes her guilt was there.
5 Believing, we rejoice.

To see the curse remove;
We bless the Lamb with cheerful voice,

And sing his bleeding love. WATTS.

HYMN 59. S. M. Aylesbury. [*]

God's tender care of his people. 1 The Lord my Shepherd is,

I shall be well supply'd;.
Since he is mine, and I am his,

What can I want beside?
2 He leads me to the place

Where heav'nly pasture grows,
Where living waters gently pass,

And full salvation flows.

3 If e'er I go astray,

He doth my soul reclaim;
And guides me in his own right way,

For his most holy name.
4 While he affords his aid,

I cannot yield to fear!
Tho' I should walk through death's dark shade,

My Shepherd's with me there.
5 In spite of all my foes,

Thou dost my table spread;
My cup with blessings overflows,

And joy exalts my head.
6 The bounties of thy love

Shall crown my foll’yying days;
Nor from thy house will I remove,

Nor cease to speak thy praise. WATTS.


L. M. [*]
TO God the Father, God the Son,
And God the Spirit, Three in One,
Be honour, praise, and glory giv’n,
By all on earth, and all in heav'n. WATTS.

C. M. [*] Now let the Father, and the Son,

And Spirit be ador'd; Where there are works to make him known,

Or saints to love the Lord. WATTS.

S. M. '[*]
Give to the Father praise,

Give glory to the Son;
And to the Spirit of his grace,
Be equal honour done.
