Bright seraphs learn Emmanuel's name,
o 5 O may I bear some humble part In that immortal song!
s Wonder and joy shall tune my heart, And love command my tongue.
HYMN 30. 6 & 4. C. M. Bermondsey. [*] Worthy the Lamb. Rev. v. 12.
Let heaven and earth reply-
-2 All they around the throne
We, who have felt his blood
-3 Join, all ye ransomed race,
• 4 What though we change our place-Yet we shall never cease
Praising his name:
o To him our songs we bring-

Christ's Intercession. Heb. vii. 25.
E lives-the great Redeemer lives;
joy assurance gives
-And now before his Father God,
e 2 Repeated crimes awake our fears,
-3 Hence, then, ye black, despairing thoughts--
When sin and Satan join their power,
That Jesus bears us on his heart.
5 Great Advocate, almighty Friend! On him our humble hopes depend; • Our cause can never, never fail, For Jesus pleads, and must prevail.
HYMN 32. 8 & 7. Calvary. [*]
Praise to the Redeemer.
AIL, thou once despised Jesus!
By thy death thou didst release us
Through the virtue of thy blood:
Peace is made for man with God.
g 4 Jesus, hail! enthroned in glory
e 5 There for sinners thou art pleading; There thou dost our place prepare ; Ever for us interceding,
Till in heaven we appear.
o 6 Glory, honour, power and blessing,
HYMN 33. 7s. Redeeming Love. [*]
Now begin the heavenly theme,
2 Ye who see the Father's grace, Beaming in the Saviour's face, o As to Canaan on ye move, Praise and bless redeeming love.
e 3 Mourning souls, dry up your tears, Banish all your guilty fears;
• See your guilt and curse remove, Cancelled by redeeming love.
e 4 Ye, alas! who long have been Willing slaves of death and sin! -Now from bliss no longer rove;
Stop, and taste redeeming love.
o 5 Welcome, all by sin oppressed-
o 6 He subdued th' infernal powers;
o 7 Hither, then, your music bring,
HYMN 34. C. M. Windsor. Plymouth. [*]
The Necessity of Renewing Grace.
OW helpless guilty nature lies,
e The heart, unchanged, can never rise To happiness and God.
p 2 The will perverse, the passions blind,
Reason, debased, can never find
e 3 Can aught, beneath a power divine, The stubborn will subdue?
• 'Tis thine, almighty Saviour, thine, To form the heart anew.
4 'Tis thine the passions to recall,
5 To chase the shades of death away, And bid the sinner live;
A beam of heaven, a vital ray"Tis thine alone to give.
6 O change these wretched hearts of ours, And give them life divine!
o Then shall our passions and our powers, Almighty Lord, be thine!
HYMN 35. S. M.

To pour fresh life in every part,
o 5 Dwell, Spirit, in our hearts;
e 2 Rest for my soul I long to find:
HYMN 36. L. M. Carthage. [b]
THAT load of sin were gone!
4 Fain would I learn of thee, my God;
d 5 I would-but thou must give the power:
o 6 Come, Lord, the drooping sinner cheer,
2 Yet sovereign mercy calls-"Return . ̈* Dear Lord, and may I come
HYMN 37. C. M. Canterbury. Wantage. [b] Repentance.
1HOW oft, alas! this wretched heart
Has from the Lord! How oft my roving thoughts depart, Forgetful of his word!"
