6 Lo! the' incarnate God, ascending,
Pleads the merit of his blood : Venture on him.--venture freely; Let no other trust intrude :
None but Jesus Can do helpless sinners good. 7 Saints and angels, join'd in concert,
Sing the praises of the Lamb;
Display thy saving power ;
And know his gracious hour.
And crucified afresh,
And turn the stone to flesh.
Their ears, to hear thy cries : Sinner, thy Saviour weeps for thee;
For thee he weeps and dies 4 All the day long he meekly stands,
His rebels to receive; And shows his wounds, and spreads his hands,
And bids you turn and live.
He will with blood efface;
Be saved, be saved by grace.
6th P. M. 6 lines 7s.
Fly to Jesus.
From the central point of bliss :
Fly to those dear wounds of his :
2 Find in Christ the way of peace,
Peace unspeakable, unknown;
Life by his expiring groan :
God to you his Son hath given;
Find on earth the life of heaven:
Bliss for every soul design'd;
God's great gift to all mankind : Blest in Christ this moment be, Blest to all eternity.
1st P. M. 6 lines 8s Room for the guilty. OME, O my guilty brethren, come,
Groaning beneath your load of sin ; His bleeding heart shall make you room ; His open
side shall take you in : He calls you now, invites you home: : Come, O my guilty brethren, come.
2 For you the purple current flow'd,
In pardons from his wounded side; Languish'd for you the Son of God; For
you the Prince of glory died. Believe, and all your sin 's forgiven: Only believe, and yours is heaven. 345
35th P. M. 87, 87, 77
The healing Fountain.
Sinners ruin’d by the fall ;
Flows for every thirsty soul,
Wounded, impotent, and blind;
Here the lost, a refuge, find. Health, this fountain will restore; He that drinks need thirst no more. 3 Come, ye dying, live forever;
'Tis a soul-reviving flood; God is faithful; he will never
Break his cov'nant seal'd in blood;
Thy father's God obey;
His guardian hand by day.
Seek him while he is near ;
And worship him with fear.
3 If thou wilt seek his face,
His ear will hear thy cry;
His grace forever nigh.
Nor choose the path to heaven; Then shalt thou perish in thy sins,
And never be forgiven. 347
He justifieth the ungodly.
For you he suffer'd pain;
And shall he bleed in vain ?
Your basest crimes he bore; Your sins were all on Jesus laid,
That you might sin no more. 3 To earth the great Redeemer came,
That you might come to heaven; Believe, believe in Jesus' name,
And all your sin 's forgiven.
And, sure as he hath died,
And thou art justified. 348
L. M. The gospel feast. YOME, sinners, to the gospel feast; Let every soul be Jesus' guest :
' Ye need not one be left behind, For God hath bidden all mankind. 2 Sent by my Lord, on you I call; The invitation is to all : Come all the world ! come, sinner, thou ! All things in Christ are ready now.
3 Come, all ye souls
souls by sin oppress’d, Ye restless wand'rers after rest; Ye poor, and maim'd, and halt, and blind, In Christ a hearty welcome find. 4 My message as from God receive; Ye all may come to Christ and live: O let his love your hearts constrain, Nor suffer him to die in vain. 5 See him set forth before your eyes, That precious, bleeding sacrifice : His offer'd benefits embrace, And freely now be saved by grace.
And yet there is room.
Where mercy spreads her bounteous store
For every humble guest.
Invites, and bids you come;
For yet there still is room. 3 0 come, and with us taste
The blessings of his love:
Of nobler joys above.
Before the eternal throne,
In ecstasies unknown.
Are welcome still to come :
Approach,—there yet is room.
