Holy Ghost, we praise thee,
That Christ's revealed
Unto our hearts,and that by thee we're
Unto his day.
X. Of our Heavenly Father.
OUR heav'nly Father is not known
To us, but in the Son alone;
His mercy, love, and boundless grace
We see display'd in Jesus' face.
2 O God! how dreadful was thy name,
Until the God-man Jesus came!
We cannot love nor honor thee,
Unless the Son hath made us free.
3 O love, no human tongue can tell!
O love divine, unsearchable!
The Father gave his only Son
For guilty sinners to atone.
4 Can any ill distress my heart,
Since God with his own Son did part?
Whate'er I want can't be deny'd,
Since Christ for me was crucify'd.
THOU hast the world so greatly lov'd,
Father, that thou by mercy mov'd
Didst give thy well-beloved Son,
By death for all our sins t'atone.
2 That he all who in him believe,
Might in thy family receive;
His sacrifice so great, so dear,
Thou all-sufficient didst declare.
3 As children we are own'd by thee,
Since Christ our Brother deign'd to be;
We feel thy kind, paternal heart
To us who have in him a part.
4 The whole salvation of thy Son,
And all his merits make our own;
Yea, grant us richly, for his sake,
Of heav'nly blessings to partake.
5 Thou art our Father and our God,
Since Christ assum'd our flesh and blood;
BEHOLD what love the Father hath Therefore in thee our trust we place,
On guilty men bestow'd,
That we who children are of wrath,
Should children be of God!
2 O how beyond expression great
His love in Christ doth shine!
Tis like himself-th' eternal God!
Past knowledge! all divine!
3 Behold! for fallen, guilty man,
The Lord of glory dies;
Lays down his life, us to redeem,
A precious sacrifice!
4 Now doth our Lord, the Son of God,
Who for us liv'd and dy'd, See of the travail of his soul, And is well satisfy'd.
5 Peace and good-will are now to man Most gloriously display'd,
And life eternal we obtain
From God, in Christ our Head. 6 O let us then repeat the theme, Which always sounds above; And ever sing, with joyful hearts, The wonders of his love!
And give thee never-ceasing praise.
192. T. 341.
THEE, O my God and King,
My Father, thee I sing,
Hear well-pleas'd the joyous sound,
Praise from earth and heav'n receive:
Lost, I now in Christ am found,
Dead, by faith in Christ I live.
2 Father, behold thy son,
In Christ I am thine own.
Stranger long to thee and rest,
See the prodigal is come:
Open wide thy arms and breast,
Take the weary wand'rer home.
3 Thine eye observ'd from far,
Thy pity view'd me near :
Me thy bowels yearn'd to see,
Me thy mercy ran to find,
Empty, poor, and void of thee,
Hungry, sick, and faint, and blind.
4 Thou on my neck didst fall,
Thy kiss forgave me all:
REJOICE, my soul, God cares for thee,
Trust to his word assuredly,
However things may go;
Thy heav'nly Father, for Christ's sake,
Of thy concerns will notice take,
And mercy freely to thee show.
2 My griefs & cares to thee well known,
My God, I cast on thee alone,
In thee is all my trust;
Since thou dost govern, I'll be still,
Into thy hands resign my will,
And thank thee prostrate in the dust.
3 I confidently do believe,
Me, thy poor child, thou wilt not leave,
For thou my Father art:
Fill thou my soul with love and faith,
Thus I am rich in life and death;
And from thy love nought shall me
194.* T. 90.
BE of good cheer in all
And stedfast on God's word rely;
He who the greatest favors grants,
The smallest never will deny :
If God could give his Son for us,
What can he then to us refuse?
195.* T. 132.
WHEN Christ, who sav'd us by his
His foll'wers call'd together, [blood,
His farewell was, " I go to God,
To mine, and to your Father;"
Therefore, believing in the Son,
With filial love we humbly own
Thee, God, our God and Father.
196.* T. 96.
DEAR heav'nly Father, we adore
And thank thee for the dreadful pain
Thy Son, when he our sorrows bore,
For our redemption did sustain.
Christ's glorious brightness in our hearts display,
We to thy protection ourselves surren-
With filial confidence and love most
O Lord our God.
Our souls and bodies feed, we pray,
With food which thou see'st best;
We ask our portion for the day,
And leave to thee the rest.
5 Let mercy pardon all our crimes,
Which justice must condemn;
As some have wrong'd us many times,
And we would pardon them.
6 Let not temptation us befall,
While here our race we run ;
But rescue and defend us all
From sin, and th' evil one.
