3 Of life the Fountain thou!
I know, I feel it now.
Faint and dead no more I droop;
Thou reviv'st me, thy supplies
Ev'ry moment springing up,
Unto life eternal rise.

4 Thou the good Shepherd art;
From thee I'll never part.
Thou my Keeper and my Guide,
Watch me still with tender care;
Gently lead me by thy side,
Kindly in thy bosom bear.

5 Thou art my daily Bread!
O Christ, thou art my
Head!
Countless benefits on me,

As thy body's member flow;
Nourish'd I, and fed by thee,
Up to thee in all things grow.
6 Prophet, to me reveal
Thy Father's perfect will.
Never mortal spake like thee;
Lord, may I by thee be taught,
May I listen eagerly

To thy words, with comfort fraught.
7 High-priest, on thee I call,
Thy blood aton'd for all.
Thou dost still in heav'n above

As the Lamb once slain appear;
There remember me in love,
Plead for me a sinner there.

8 Jesus, thou art my King,
Praises to thee I sing.

Kept by thy almighty hand,

Saviour, who shall pluck me thence ?
Faith supports, by faith I stand,
By the faith thou dost dispense.
216. T. 22.

COME, worship at Immanuel's feet;
Behold in him what wonders meet!
Words are too feeble to express
His worth, his glory, or his grace.

2 Christ is our Head; each member lives,

And owns the vital pow'r he gives : The saints below, and saints above, Join'd by his Spirit, and his love. 3 He is the Vine; his heav'nly root Supplies each branch with life and fruit :

O may a lasting union join

My soul, as branch, to Christ the Vine!
4 He is the Rock; how firm he proves!
The Rock of ages never moves:
But the sweet streams that from him flow,
Attend us all the desert through.
5 He is the Sun of Righteousness,
Diffusing light, and joy, and peace:
What healing in his beams appears,
To chase our clouds and dry our tears!
6 Yet faintly to us mortals here
His glory, grace and worth appear;
His beauties we shall clearly trace,
When we behold him face to face.

HOLY Ghost, thou God and Lord
Ofthy Congregation,
We to thee with one accord
Pay our adoration.

2 For thy teachings, heav'nly Guide,
O accept our praises!
Have we thee, we're well supply'd
With good gifts and graces.
3 Thou explainest unto us
Jesus' incarnation,

And how he upon the cross

Purchas'd our salvation.

4 Thou fill'st with the gospel light
Every land and nation,

Aidst thy witnesses, with might,
Under tribulation.

5 Us to Jesus thou hast brought,
And wilt keep us ever
In the faith which thou hast wrought,
Thro' thy grace and favor.

Lead his ransom'd people,
And to please him give them grace,
Bear them up when feeble.

Thro' thy benediction!

8 Grant, that we may never lose,
Till our dying moment,
The rich comfort which to us
Flows from Christ's atonement.

9 For, our heav'nly Father's love, Jesus' great compassion,

Our strong consolation.

10 Amen, Lord God, Holy Ghost,
Endless thanks and praises
Gives to thee the ransom'd host,
In the name of Jesus.

GOD Holy Spirit, be for ever blest, That thou to us Christ's death dost manifest,

And of him the Fountain, whence flows salvation,

Dost so distinctly give us information, And light impart.

2 What of the Father and the Son we know

To thy divine instructions all we owe,
Thro' thy operations we are assured,
That Jesus Christ, who death for us
endured,
Is Lord and God.

3 Thanks for revealing to us the Lamb slain,

And that his blood would have been shed in vain,

Had to sanctify us ought else availed, And could our souls have otherwise been healed, Than by his stripes. 4 Christ's meritorious suff'rings are

the sum,

And sole foundation of true Christendom;

We enjoy, thro' mercy, those comforts blessed,

Of which, thro' thee, believers are possessed, While here on earth.

5 The blood of Christ alone can joy impart,

Can heal, revive, and cheer the contrite heart;

Therefore show still clearer to us his

And lead us daily more, God! Holy

O Comforter, God Holy Ghost!
Thou heav'nly gifts on us bestow'st;
The Pledge of our salvation art,
And bear'st thy witness in our heart:

Thou callest, teaching them to trust
For help, forgiveness, peace and grace,
In him, the Lord our Righteousness.
3 Thy unction freely dost impart
To ev'ry poor and contrite heart,
Which Jesus as the Saviour knows,
From whom alone salvation flows.

4 The feeble souls thou dost sustain,
Anointest all the witness train;
Keepest believers in the faith,

COME, Holy Spirit, come,

Let thy bright beams arise;
Dispel the darkness from our minds,
And open all our eyes.

2 Revive our drooping faith,
Our doubts and fears remove;
And kindle in our breast the flame
Of never-ceasing love.

3 Convince us of our sip,

Then lead to Jesus' blood;
And to our stubborn hearts reveal
The hidden love of God.

4 'Tis thine to cleanse the heart,
To sanctify the soul,
To pour fresh life on ev'ry part,
And new-create the whole.

Our minds from bondage free:

That Jesus is the Lord,

Unless thou take the veil away,
And breathe the living word;
Then, only then we feel

And cry with joy unspeakable,
"Thou art my Lord, my God!"
3 O that the world might know
The all-atoning Lamb!
Spirit of faith, descend and show
The virtue of his name ;
The grace which all may find,
The saving pow'r, impart;
O testify to all mankind
And speak in ev'ry heart!

228. T. 14.

COME, Holy Ghost, eternal God,
Proceeding from above,
Both from the Father and the Son,

Thou God of peace and love.
2 Thou art the only Comforter
In all our soul's distress;
Thou showest us our unbelief,

And Christ's redeeming grace.
3 Thou dost thy sanctifying gifts
Unto the church impart;
Writest God's holy, precious law
On each believer's heart.

4 Thy holy unction pow'r affords
The gospel to proclaim:
By thee enabled, we set forth

Salvation in Christ's name.

5 Assist and strengthen us, O Lord!
Thou know'st we all are frail :
Grant, neither Satan, world, nor flesh,
May o'er Christ's flock prevail.

6 Cause all disharmony and strife
In Christendom to cease:
And give to all the flocks of Christ
Love, union, truth, and peace.
