While all the armies of the sky
531. See Felix, cloth'd with pomp and pow'r,
See his resplendent bride,
The Saviour crucify'd.
• Go for this time away.;
« On some convenient day.' Attention to the words of life
Let Felix thus adjourn;
Our first and last concern.
Ope thy treasures ! so shall fall
The good hand of God has brought us again, (A favour bestow'd we hope not in vain) To hear from our Saviour the word of his
grace; Then be our behaviour becoming the place. To worship the Lord with praise and with
pray'r, To practice his word as well as to hear. To own with contrition the deeds we have
done, And take the remission God gave in his Son. Blest Spirit of Christ, descend on us thus; Thy servant assist, teach him to teach us; O send us thy unction, to teach us all good, And touch with compunction, and sprinkle
534. THANKFUL for our ev'ry blessing, Let us sing Christ the spring,
Never, never ceasing!
Source of all our gifts and graces,
Calls for all our praises.
Fills with food and gladness.
To a feast in heaven.
The more, thro' grace, myself I know, The more content I am to bow,
And lie at Jesu's cross : By faith I feel his cleansing blood; I wait on him for ev'ry good,
And count my gain but loss. Content and glad, O may I be, To have Salvation, Lord from thee,
E'en as a sinner poor! I nothing have, I nothing am, My treasure's wholly in the Lamb,
Both now and evermore.
To thee our wants are known,
Our praises, Lord, and pray'rs receive,
O grant that each of us,
When thou and thine appear!
537. Thou say'st, dear Jesus, all thy saints,
Who love thy face to see, Shall have, while in this vale of tears,
Kind visits oft from thee,
Then let my soul with thee converse,
Who art my chief delight; For sure the world can't ease my heart,
If banish'd from thy sight.
538. THANKS, for mercies past, receive;
Pardon of our sins renew; Teach us, henceforth how to live
With eternity in view : Bless thy
ord to old and young, Fill us with the Saviour's love; And when life's short race is run,
Take us to thy house above,
539. This God is the God we adore,
Our faithful, unchangeable friend, Whose love is as great as bis pow'r,
And neither knows measure nor end. 'Tis Jesus, the First and the Last,
Whose Spirit shall guide us safe home; We'll praise him for all that is past,
And trust him for all that's to come.
Thou Saviour divine,
Most graciously bless
With spiritual grace:
Our temporal food,
The goodness of God.
