3 Subdue the
of Whate'er that sin may be; That we, in singleness of heart,
Play worship only thee. 4 Then with our spirits witness bear,
That we are sons of God; Redeem'd from sin, and death, and hell,
Through Christ's atoning blood. 185
C. M. Source of light and joy. YREAT Spirit, by whose mighty power
On us thy benediction shower;
Inspire our souls with love. 2 Hail, Source of light! arise and shine;
All gloom and doubt dispel ;
In us forever dwell.
And full redemption bring; New tongues impart to speak the praise
Of Christ, our God and King. 4 Thine inward witness bear, unknown
To all the world beside ;
Our Saviour glorified. 186
Whose rays of heavenly love
And point our souls above ;-
Dost stop the sinner's way,
Though earthly joys decay ;
3 Thou, whose inspiring breath
Can make the cloud of care,
A smile of glory wear ;-
With love to all our race,Blest Comforter! to us impart
Thine all-sufficient grace. 187

Get thy light within me shine ;
All my guilty fears remove;
soul with joy divine; Keep me, Lord, forever thine. 188
Thy grace is unconfined;
The darkness of the mind. 2 Now to our eyes display
The truth thy words reveal; Cause us to run the heavenly way,
Delighting in thy will.
3 Thy teachings make us know
The myst'ries of thy love,
The joy of things above.
O spread thy beams abroad;
And guide our steps to God.

Seeking His power and grace.
Remember us for good;
And hear his speaking blood.
Father, glorify thy Son;
And send the promise down.
O Christ, the Spirit give;
That we might now receive ?
Life to all thy limbs impart;
In every waiting heart.
The gift of Jesus, come;
And swell to make thee room ;
Come, O come, and in us be;
To all eternity
THE HOLY SPIRIT. 190
1st P. M. 6 lines 8s. Let there be light AND thy wings, celestial Dove,
And, brooding o’er our nature's night,
And let there in our souls be light;
And light there in our hearts shall be;
Thy great mysterious majesty;
With all thy quick’ning powers :
In these cold hearts of ours.
Fond of these earthly toys;
To reach eternal joys.
In vain we strive to rise ;
And our devotion dies.
At this poor dying rate;
And thine to us so great ?
With all thy quick’ning powers ;
And that shall kindle ours.
6th P. M. 6 lines 7s. The Son glorified. ATHER, glorify thy Son ;
Answer his all-powerful prayer;
Send that other Comforter,
Good and faithful as thou art,-.
Every moment in our heart? Yes, thou must the grace bestow : Truth hath said it shall be so.
C. M. Life, light, and love. INTHRONED on high, Almighty Lord,
The Holy Ghost send down; Fulfil in us thy faithful word,
And all thy mercies crown. 2 Though on our heads no tongues of fire
Their wondrous powers impart,
Thy Spirit in our heart.
Thy heavenly influence give; Quicken our souls, our guilt remove,
That we in Christ may live.
The glories of his grace,
The brightness of his face.
Life's ever-springing well ; Till God in us, and we in God,
In love eternal dwell,
