Transform me by thy power,
And let me rove no more!

Departure from Christ lamented.
Didst for my sins atone,
Do not a child disown!
I am, and still would be ;
And draw my soul to thee.
Hingham. Medway. 415
Returning and choosing God.
To me, nor earth nor hell can part,
Ah, what shall fix this faithless heart?
If thou indeed hast set me free?
If thou hast died to ransom me?
And guard the gifts thyself hast given:
My life, my happiness and heaven.

Resolved to seek my all from thee.
To thee, my Lord, I here restore :
Give me thyself-I ask no more. 416
St. Thomas. Pentonville. 1 MY soul, review the time In which
God I sought;
88. & 4.
2 Through all my fainting heart
His secret vigor spread;
And raised my drooping head. fII 3 Now will I raise my voice,
In loud and cheerful song,
Who to his courts belong.

Along the joyful road.
I shall be ever blest;
And seek his heavenly rest. 417
Islington. South Street 1 CREATE, O God, my powers anew,
Make my whole heart sincere and true;
Still cease to shine.
Those heavenly joys that once were mine;
Thou God of love.
With holy zeal proclaim thy praise ;
With hearts sincere.
Remove the blood-polluted stain ;-
That flows from thee.
With sweet and quickening grace,
And speed me in my race.
St. Martin's. Stamford

My fortitude, and joy:
My happy thoughts employ.
I would forever own;
Each traitor, from the throne.
To heaven my passions raise;
Devoted to thy praise.
INSTITUTIONS OF THE GOSPEL.
Southfield. Clapton 419
Safety of the Church.
Where we adoring stand,
And beauty of the land !
Defy the assaults of hell.
The doors wide open fling ;
The statutes of your King.
And live in perfect peace;
And ventured on his grace.
And banish all your fears :
Eternal as his years. 420
Mendon. Mariana mf ll 1 HAPPY the church, thou sacred place,
The seat of thy Creator's grace;
2 Thy walls are strength-and at thy gates
A guard of heavenly warriors waits ;
Fixed on his counsels and his love.
Against thy throne in vain they rage ;
That break and die upon the shorė.
Nor fear the wrath of earth and hell
Like brazen bulwarks built around.
Swift as the fleeting moments run,

And calls them heirs of heaven.
His love endures the same;
Blots out our children's name. 422
Pentonville. Mornington. 1 LORD, what our ears have heard,
Our eyes delighted trace;
To Zion's chosen race.
And mark them out for thine :

Includes our rising race.
Shall own their fathers' God;
And sound thy praise abroad.
Medfield. Bedford, 423

Jesus on earth displays !
The riches of his grace!
