1. Pris'ners of hope, be strong, be bold; Cast off your doubts, disdain to fear;

Dare to be - lieve; on Christ lay hold; Wres-tle with Christ in migh-ty prayer;

3 Learning's redundant part and vain

Be here cut off, and cast aside :
But let them, Lord, the substance gain;

In every solid truth abide;
Swiftly acquire, and ne'er forego
The knowledge fit for man to know.
4 Unite the pair so long disjoin'd,

Knowledge and vital piety:
Learning and holiness combined,

And truth and love, let all men see In those whom up to thee we give, Thine, wholly thine, to die and" live.

The promises are sure.

150–6. 2 Hast thou not died to purge our sin,

And risen, thy death for us to plead ? To write thy law of love within

Our hearts, and make us free indeed ? That we our Eden might regain, Thou diedst, and couldst not die in vain. 3 The promise stands, forever sure,

And we shall in thy image shine, Partakers of a nature pure,

Holy, angelical, divine; In spirit join'd to thee, the Son, As thou art with the Father one. 1011 Sanctified knowledge. 152–6. COME, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,

To whom we for our children cry, The good desired, and wanted most,

Out of thy richest grace supply; The sacred discipline be given, To train and bring them up for heaven. 2 Error and ignorance remove;

Their blindness both of heart and mind : Give them the wisdom from above,

Spotless, and peaceable, and kind : In knowledge pure their minds renew, And store with thoughts divinely true.

822 Circumspection.


, Who load us with reproach and shame, As servants of the Lord most high,

As zealous for his glorious Name,
We ought in all his paths to move
With holy fear and humble love.
2 That wisdom, Lord, on us bestow,

From every evil to depart;
To stop the mouth of every foe,

While, upright both in life and heart,
The proofs of godly fear we give,
And show them how the Christians live.

All things possible to the believer.

150-a. 2 When thou the work of faith hast wrought,

I here shall in thine image shine,
Nor sin in deed, or word, or thought.

Let men exclaim, and fiends repine,
They cannot break the firm decree,
All things are possible to me.
3 All things are possible to God,

To Christ, the power of God in man,To me, when I am all renew'd,

When I in Christ am form'd again,
And witness, from all sin set free,-
All things are possible to me.

The deii of unbelief. 154-c. () THOU, whom fain my soul would love, This veil of unbelief remove,

And show me all thy goodness, show;
Jesus, thyself in me reveal ;
Tell me thy name, thy nature tell.
2 Hast thou been with me, Lord, so long,

Yet thee, my Lord, have I not known?
I claim thee with a faltring tongue;

I pray thee, in a feeble groan, Tell me, O tell me, who thou art, And speak thy name into my heart.

3 If now thou talkest by the way

With me, the abject sinner, me,
The mystery of grace display ;

Open mine eyes that I may see:
That I may understand thy word,
And now cry out,—It is the Lord !
Ardent longings for the blessing.

154-6. COME, O thou universal Good,

Balm of the wounded conscience, come ! The hungry, dying spirit's food,

The weary, wand'ring pilgrim's home; Haven to take the shipwreck’d in, My everlasting rest from sin. 2 Come, O my comfort and delight;

My strength and health, my shield and simi, My boast, and confidence, and might,

My joy, my glory, and my crown:
My Gospel hope, my calling's prize;
My tree of life, my paradise.
3 The Secret of the Lord thou art,

The mystery so long unknown ;
Christ in a pure and perfect heart;

The name inscribed on the white stone The life divine, the little leaven, My precious pearl, my present heaven.

Retrospect of a year. 2 As the winged arrow flies

3 Thanks for mercies past receive; Speedily the mark to find ;

Pardon of our sins renew; As the lightning from the skies

Teach us henceforth how to live Darts, and leaves no trace behind,

With eternity in view:
Swiftly thus our fleeting days

Bless thy word to young and old
Bear us down life's rapid stream;

Fill us with a Saviour's love ;
Upward, Lord, our spirits raise;

And when life's short tale is told,
All below is but a dream.

May we reign with thee above.
