Ere  shines the  dawn  of  rising day,
Thy sovereign light within my heart,
Thy all-enlivening power display.

While in this desert land I live;
And hungry as I am, and faint,

My whole desire on Thee,O Lord;
And more I Joy to gain Thy grace,

My happy life shall glide away;
The praise that to Thy name belongs
Hourly with lifted hands I'll pay.

With trembling awe, in midnight shade,
I muse on all Thy hands have wrought.

O God, who bidd'st my heart be
glad Benea…

MHB464-470: Still with thee, o my God

MHB 470

1.STILL with Thee, O my God,
I would desire to be;
By day, by night, at home, abroad,
I would be still with Thee.

2.With Thee, when dawn comes in,
And calls me back to care;
Each day returning, to begin
With Thee, my God, in prayer.

3.With Thee, amid the crowd
That throngs the busy mart;
To hear Thy voice 'mid clamour loud,
Speak softly to my heart.

4.With Thee, when day is done,
And evening calms the mind;
The setting, as the rising sun,
With Thee my heart would find.

5.With Thee,when darkness
brings The signal of repose;
Calm In the shadow of Thy wings,
Mine eyelids I would close.

6.With Thee, in Thee, by faith
Abiding I would be;
By day, by night, in life, in death,
I would be still with Thee.

MHB 469
1.THAT  mystic  Word  of Thine. O sovereign  Lord,
Is all too pure,too high, too deep for me;
Weary of striving, and with longing faint,
I breathe it back again in prayer to Thee.

2.Abide in me, I pray, and I in Thee;
From this good hour,O leave me nevermore
Then s…

O Jesus Christ,grow Thou in me

MHB 463
1.O Jesus Christ,grow Thou in me,
And all things else recede:
My heart be daily nearer
Thee From sin be daily freed.

2.Each day let Thy supporting might
My weakness still embrace;
My darkness vanish in Thy light,
Thy life my death efface.

3.In Thy bright beams which on me fall,
Fade every evil thought;
That I am nothing, Thou art all,
I would be daily taught.

4.More of Thy glory let me see,
Thou Holy, Wise, and True I would
Thy living image be,
In Joy and sorrow too.

5.Fill me with gladness from above,
Hold me by strength divine!
Lord, let the glow of Thy great love
Through my whole being shine

6. Make this poor self grow less and less,
Be Thou my life and aim;
O make  me dally,through Thy grace,
More meet to bear Thy name 1 Amen.

MHB 462

1. HUNGER and I thirst;
Jesus, my manna be: Ye living waters,
burst Out of the rock for me.

2.Thou bruised and broken Bread,
My life-long wants supply;
As living souls are fed, O feed me, or I die.

3.Thou true life-giving Vine,
Let me Thy sw…

A closer walk with God ||TALK with us,Lord,Thyself reveal

MHB 461
1.O FOR a closer walk with God,
A calm and heavenly frame,
A light to shine upon the road
That leads me to the Lamb.

2. Where is the blessedness I knew
When first I saw the Lord?
Where is that soul-refreshing view
Of Jesus and His word?

3. What peaceful hours I once enjoyed
How sweet their memory still
But they have left an aching void        
The world can never fill.

4. Return, O holy Dove  return,
Sweet messenger of rest
I hate the sins that made Thee mourn,
And drove Thee from my breast.

5. The dearest idol I have known,
Whate'er that idol be,
Help me to tear it from
Thy throne, And worship only Thee.

6. So shall my walk be  close with God,
Calm and serene my frame;
So purer light shall mark the road
That leads me to the Lamb.

MHB 460
1.TALK with us,Lord,Thyself reveal,
While here o'er earth we rove;
Speak to our hearts, and let us feel
The kindling of Thy love.

All time, and toil, and care;
Labour is rest, and pain is sweet,
If …

Be my refuge and my rest oh Lord

MHB 459
1.TO the haven of Thy breast,
O Son of Man, I fly;
Be my refuge and my rest,
For O the storm is high!
Save me from the furious blast,
A covert from the tempest be;
Hide me, Jesus, till o'erpast
The storm of sin I see.

2.Welcome  as the water-spring
To a dry, barren place,
O descend on me, and bring
Thy sweet refreshing grace I
O'er a parched and weary land
As a great rock extends its shade,
Hide  me,  Saviour,  with  Thine hand,
And screen my naked head.

3.In the time of my distress
Thou hast my succour been,
In my utter helplessness
Restraining me from sin;
O how swiftly didst Thou move
To save me in the trying hour!
Still protect me with Thy love,«
And shield me with Thy power.'

4.First and last in me perform  
The work Thou hast begun;
Be my shelter from the storm,
My  shadow from the sun; Weary,
parched with thirst, and faint,
Till Thou the abiding Spirit breathe,
Every moment, Lord,
I want The merit of Thy death.

MHB 458

1.LONG did I toil,and knew no earthly …

Thou shepherd of Israel and mine, the joy and desire of my heart

MHB 457
1.THOU  Shepherd  of   Israel,and mine,
The joy and desire of my heart,
For closer communion I pine,
I long to reside where Thou art;
The pasture I languish to find Where all,
who their Shepherd obey,
Are fed, on Thy bosom reclined,
And screened from the heat of the day.

2.Ah! show me that happiest place,
The place of Thy people's abode,
Where saints In an ecstasy gaze,
And hang on a crucified God;
Thy love for a sinner declare,
Thy passion and death on the tree;
My spirit to Calvary bear,
To suffer and triumph   with Thee.

3.'Tis there, with the lambs of Thy Hock,
There only, I covet to rest,
To lie at the foot of the rock,
Or rise to be hid in Thy breast;
'Tis there I would always abide,
And never a moment depart,
Concealed in the cleft of Thy side,
Eternally held In Thy heart.

MHB 456

1.FOR ever here my rest shall be,
Close to Thy bleeding side;
This all my hope, and all my plea,
For me the Saviour died.

2. My dying Saviour, and my God,
Fountain for guilt and s…

As pants the hart for cooling streams when heated in the chase so long my soul for thee

MHB 455
I.AS pants the hart for cooling streams,
When heated in the chase,
So longs my soul, O God, for Thee,
And Thy refreshing grace.

2. For Thee, my God, the living God,
My thirsty soul doth pine;
O when shall I behold Thy face,
Thou Majesty divine

3.God  of  my   strength,  how  long shall I,
Like one forgotten, mourn?
Forlorn, forsaken, and exposed
To my oppressor's scorn.

4. Why restless, why cast down, my soul?
Hope still, and thou shalt sing
The praise of Him who Is thy God,
Thy health's eternal  spring.

MHB 453
1.MY Saviour, hear me,
Draw me close to Thee;
Thou hast paid my ransorn,
Thou hast died for me :
Now by simple faith I claim
Pardon through Thy gracious name;
Thou my Ark of safety,
Let me fly to Thee.

2.O my Saviour, bless me,
Bless me, while I pray;
Grant Thy grace to help me,
Take my fear away :
I believe Thy promise.
Lord, I will trust Thy holy Word;
Thou my soul's Redeemer,
Bless me while I pray.

3.O my Saviour, love me,
Make me all Thine own;
Leave m…

Lift my heart to thee my saviour

MHB 452
1.WHAT shall I do my God to LOve,
My Saviour, and the world's,to praise?
Whose tenderest compassions move
To me and all the fallen race,
Whose mercy Is divinely free
For all the fallen race and—me.

2.1 long to know, and to make known,
The heights and depths of love divine,
The  kindness  Thou to  me  hast shown,
Whose  every  sin  was  counted Thine :
My    God   for   me   resigned   His breath;
He   died   to   save   my   soul   from death.

3. How shall I thank Thee for the grace
On  me   and   all  mankind  bestowed?
O   that   my   every   breath   were praise!
O that my heart were filled with God
My  heart  would then, with  love
o'ernow, And all my life Thy glory show.

MHB 451
I. LIFT my heart to Thee, Saviour divine;
For Thou art all to me, And I am Thine.
Is there on  earth a closer  bond than this :
That my Beloved's mine, and I am His?

2.Thine am I by all ties; But chiefly Thine,
That through Thy sacrifice Thou, Lord, art mine.
By  Thine  own  cords of…

MHB449&450: NOW let us see thy beauty oh Lord

MHB 450
1.NOW let us see Thy beauty. Lord,
As we have seen before;
And by Thy beauty quicken us
To love Thee and adore.

2.'TIs easy when with simple mind
Thy loveliness we see,
To consecrate ourselves afresh
To duty and to Thee.

3.Our every feverish mood is cooled,
And gone is every load,
When we can lose the love of self,
And find the love of God.

4.TIs by Thy loveliness we're won
To home and Thee again,
And as we are Thy children true
We are more truly men.

5.Lord, It is coming to ourselves
When thus we come to Thee;
The bondage of Thy loveliness
Is perfect liberty.

6.So now we come to ask again
What Thou hast often given,
The vision of that loveliness
Which is the life of heaven.

MHB 449

1.LORD,enlarge    our    scanty thought
To know the wonders Thou hast wrought;
Unloose our stammering tongues,
to tell Thy love immense, unsearchable.

2.What are our works but sin and death,
Till Thou Thy quickening  Spirit breathe;
Thou giv'st the power Thy grace to move :
O wondrou…

there is love that wilt not let me go

MHB 448
1.LOVE that wilt not let me go,
I rest my weary soul In Thee :
1 give Thee back the life I owe,
That in Thine ocean depths Its flow
May richer, fuller be.

2. O Light that followest all my way,
I yield  my nickering torch  to Thee:
My   heart   restores   its   borrowed ray,
That in Thy sunshine's blaze its day
May brighter, fairer be.

3.O Joy that seekest me through pain,
I cannot close my heart to Thee :
I trace the rainbow through the rain
And feel the promise is not vain,
That morn shall tearless be.

4.O Cross that Uftest up my head,
I dare not ask to fly from Thee:
I lay In dust life's glory dead,
And from the ground there blossoms red
Life that shall endless be.
1.O LOVE, who formedst me to wear
The Image of Thy Godhead here;
Who soughtest me with tender care
Through all my wanderings wild and drear :
O Love, 1 oive myself to Thee,
Thine  ever,  only   Thine  to  be.

2. O Love, of whom Is truth and light,
The  Word and Spirit, life and power,
Whose heart was bared…

MHB446 and 444: I love my God

MHB 446
1.MY God, I love Thee—not because
I hope for heaven thereby,
Nor yet because who love Thee not
Are lost eternally.

2.Thou, O my Jesus, Thou didst me
Upon the Cross embrace;
For me didst bear the nails and spear,
And  manifold  disgrace,

3.And griefs and torments numberless,
And sweat of agony,
And death itself and all for me,
Who was Thine enemy.

4.Then why, O blessed Jesus Christ,
Should I not love Thee well?
Not for the sake of winning heaven,
Or of escaping hell;

5.Not with the hope of gaining aught;
Not seeking a reward;
But as Thyself hast loved me,
O ever-loving Lord.

6.E'en so I love Thee, and will love,
And in Thy praise will sing;
Because Thou art my loving
God And my eternal King.
MHB 444
1.BELOVED, let us love :
Love is of God;

Its true abode.

They only are His sons,
Born from above.

Por love Is rest,
And he who loveth not,
Abides unblest.

4.Beloved, let us love :
In lo…

Thee will I love l, my strength and my tower

MHB 445
1.THEE will I love, my strength, my tower,
Thee will I love, my Joy, my crown,
Thee will I love with all my power,
In all Thy works, and Thee alone;
Thee will I love, till the pure fire
I'M my whole soul with chaste desire.

2. Ah, why did I so late Thee know,
Thee, lovelier than the sons of men!
Ah, why did I no sooner go
To Thee, the only ease in pain
Ashamed, I sigh, and inly mourn,
That I so late to Thee did turn.

3.In darkness willingly I strayed,
I sought Thee, yet from Thee I roved,
Far wide my wandering thoughts were spread,
Thy creatures more than Thee I loved;
And now If more at length I see,
'TIs through Thy light, and comes from Thee.

4. I thank Thee, uncreated Sun,
That Thy bright beams on me have shined;
I thank Thee, who hast overthrown My foes,
and healed my wounded mind;
I thank Thee,whose enlivening voice
Bids my freed heart In Thee rejoice.

5.GIve to mine eyes refreshing tears,
Give to my heart chaste, hallowed fIres,
GIve to my soul, with filial f…

Its true abode.

In love is light,
And he who loveth not,
Dwelleth in night.

5.Beloved, let us love :
For only thus
Shall we behold that
God Who loveth us.

Loved with everlasting love

MHB 443

1.LOVED with everlasting love,
Led by grace that love to know;
Spirit, breathing from above,
Thou hast taught me It is so.
O this full and perfect peace I
0 this transport all divine!
In a love which cannot cease
1 am His, and He is mine.

2.Heaven above is softer blue,
Earth around Is sweeter green;
Something lives in every hue,
Christless eyes have never seen:
Birds with gladder songs o'erflow,
Flowers with deeper beauties shine,
Since I know, as now I know,
I am His, and He is mine.

3.His for ever, only His :
Who the Lord and me shall part?
Ah, with what a rest of bliss
Christ can fill the loving heart
Heaven and earth may fade and flee,
First-born light in gloom decline;
But, while God and I shall be,
I am His, and He is mine.

Happy is the heart where graces rigns

1.HAPPY the heart where graces reign,
Where love Inspires the breast;
Love Is the brightest of the train,
And perfects all the rest.

2.Knowledge, alas, 'tis all In vain,
And all in vain our fear;
Our stubborn sins will fight and reign,
If love be absent there.

3.'Tis love that makes our cheerful
feet In swift obedience move :
The devils know, and tremble too;
But Satan cannot love.

4.This Is the grace that lives and sings,
When faith and hope shall cease;
"Tls  this  shall   strike our joyful strings
In the sweet realm of bliss.

5. Before we quite forsake our clay,
Or leave this dark abode,
The wings of love bear us away
To see our gracious God.

Rich's unsearchable in Jesus's love we know

1.RICHES unsearchable
In Jesu's love we know;
And pleasures, springing from the well
Of life, our souls o'erflow.

2.The spirit we receive
Of wisdom, grace, and power;
And always sorrowful we live,
Rejoicing evermore.

3.Angels our servants are,
And keep In all our ways,
And In their watchful hands they bear
The sacred sons of grace :

4.Unto that heavenly bliss
They all our steps attend;
And God Himself our Father is,
And Jesus is our Friend.

Far off we need not rove

1.FAR off we need not rove
To find the God of love;
In His providential care,
Ever intimately near,
All His various works declare,
God, the bounteous God Is here.

2.We live, and move, and are,
Through His preserving care;
He doth still In life maintain
Every soul that moves and lives;
Gives us back our breath again,
Being every moment gives.

3.Who live O God in Thee,
Entirely Thine should be:
Thine we are, a heaven-born race,
Only to Thy glory move,
Thee with all our powers we praise,
Thee with all our being love.

Hear me when I call oh Lord my God

1.JESU, my Lord, my God, my All,

Hear me, and from Thy dwelling-place
Pour down the riches of Thy grace :
Jesu, my Lord, I Thee adore;

How great the ]oy that Thou hast brought,
So far exceeding hope or thought

4.Jesu, of Thee shall be my song;

All that I have or am is Thine,
And Thou, blest Saviour, Thou art mine:

1.O SAVIOUR, I have nought to plead,
In earth beneath or heaven above,
But Just my own exceeding need,
And Thy exceeding love.

2.The need  will soon be past and gone,
Exceeding great, but quickly o'er;
The love unbought is all
Thine own, And lasts for evermore.

Jesus my Lord, my God, and my all

1.JESU, my Lord, my God, my All,

Hear me, and from Thy dwelling-place
Pour down the riches of Thy grace :
Jesu, my Lord, I Thee adore;

2.Jesu, too late I Thee have sought;
How can I love Thee as I ought?
And how extol Thy matchless fame,
The glorious beauty of Thy name?

And purchased my pardon on Cal¬vary's tree;
I love Thee for wearing the thorns on Thy brow,
If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus, 'tis now.

3.1 will love Thee In life, I will love Thee in death,
And praise Thee as long as Thou lendest me breath;
And say, when the death-dew lies cold on my brow,
If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus, 'tis now.

4. In mansions of glory and endless delight,
I'll ever adore Thee and dwell In Thy sight;
I'll sing with the glittering crown on my brow,
If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus, tis now.

It passeth knowledge that dear love of thine

1.IT passeth knowledge, that dear love of Thine,
My Saviour, Jesus Yet this soul of mine
Would of Thy love. In all Its breadth and length,
Its height and depth,and everlasting strength,
Know more and more.

2.It passeth telling,that dear love of Thine,
My Saviour, Jesus I   Yet these lips of mine
Would   fain   proclaim  to   sinners far and near
A love which can remove all guilty fear, And love beget.

3.It passeth praises, that dear love of Thine,
My Saviour, Jesus Yet this heart of mine
Would sing that love, so full, so rich, so free,
Which brings a rebel sinner, such as me, Nigh unto God.

4.0 fill me, Saviour, Jesus, with Thy love
Lead, lead me to the living fount above;
Thither may I, in simple faith, draw nigh,
And never to another fountain fly, But unto Thee.

5. And then, when Jesus face to face I see,
When at His lofty throne I bow the knee,
Then of His love. In all Its breadth and length,
Its height and depth, its everlasting strength, My soul shall sing.

Love is the key of life and death

1.LOVE is the key of life and death,
Of hidden heavenly mystery :
Of all Christ is, of all He saith,
Love is the key.

2.As  three  times to His saint He saith,
He saith to me, He saith to thee,
Breathing His grace-conferring breath :
Lovest thou Me?

3. Ah, Lord, I have such feeble faith,
Such feeble hope to comfort me :
But love It Is, Is strong as death;
And I love Thee.

Love divine, how sweet thou art

1.LOVE divine, how sweet Thou art
When shall I And my willing heart
All taken up by Thee? I thirst,
I faint, I die to prove
The greatness of redeeming love,
The love of Christ to me.

2.Stronger His love than death or hell;
Its riches are unsearchable;
The first-born sons of light
Desire In vain its depths to see,
They cannot reach the mystery,
The length, and breadth, and height.

3.God only knows the love of God;
O that it now were shed abroad
In this" poor stony heart
For love I sigh, for love I pine :
This only portion. Lord, be mine,
Be mine this better part

4.O that I could for ever sit
Like Mary at the Master's feet
Be this my happy choice :
My only care, delight, and bliss,
My joy, my heaven on earth, be this
To hear the Bridegroom's voice

Thou hidden love of God in my heart

1.THOU hidden love of God, whose height,
Whose depth unfathomed,no man knows,
I see from far Thy beauteous light,
Inly I sigh for Thy repose;
My heart Is pained, nor can it be
At rest, till it finds rest in Thee.

2.Thy secret voice invites me still
The sweetness of Thy yoke to prove;
And fain I would:but though my will Seems fixed,
yet wide my pas-sions rove;
Yet hindrances strew all the way;
I aim at Thee, yet from Thee stray.

3.'Tis   mercy  all,   that  Thou   hast
brought My mind to seek her peace In Thee;
Yet, while I seek but find Thee not,
No  peace  my wandering soul shall see :
O when shall all my wanderings end,
And all  my  steps to Thee-ward tend

4.Is there a thing beneath the sun
That strives with Thee my heart to share?
Ah, tear it thence, and reign alone,
The Lord of every motion there
Then shall my heart from earth be free,
When it hath found repose in Thee.

5.0 hide this self from me, that I
No more, but Christ in me, may live!
My vile affections crucify,
Nor let…

Hank, my soul it is the Lord

1.HABK, my soul! It Is the Lord;
'Tis thy Saviour, hear His word;
Jesus speaks, and speaks to thee:
Say, poor sinner, lov'st thou Me?

2.1 delivered thee when bound,
And,when bleeding,healed  thy wound;
Sought  thee wandering, set thee right;
Turned thy darkness Into light.

3.Can a woman's tender care
Cease toward the child she bare?
Yes, she may forgetful be;
Yet will I remember thee.

4.Mine is an unchanging love,
Higher than the heights above,
Deeper than the depths beneath,
Free and faithful, strong as death.

5.Thou Shalt see My glory soon,
When the work of grace is done;
Partner of My throne shalt be;
Say, poor sinner, lov'st thou Me?

6.Lord, it is my chief complaint
That my love is weak and faint;
Yet I love Thee, and adore;
O for grace to love Thee more

Love divine all loves excelling joy of heaven

1.LOVE divine, all loves excelling,
Joy of heaven, to earth come down;
Fix in us Thy humble dwelling,
All Thy faithful mercies crown :
Jesu, Thou art all compassion,
Pure, unbounded love Thou art;
Visit us with Thy salvation,
Enter every trembling heart.

2.Come, almighty to deliver,
Let us all Thy grace receive;
Suddenly return, and never,
Never more Thy temples leave :
Thee we would be always blessing,
Serve Thee as Thy hosts above,
Pray,and praise Thee, without ceasing,
Glory in Thy perfect love.

3.Finish then Thy new creation,
Pure and spotless let us be;
Let us see Thy great salvation,
Perfectly restored in Thee;
Changed from glory into glory,
Till in heaven we take our place,
Till we cast our crowns before Thee,
Lost in wonder, love, and praise.

Jesus, thy boundless love to me I pray

1.JESU, Thy boundless love to me
No thought can reach, no tongue declare;
O knit my thankful heart to Thee,
And reign without a rival there :
Thine wholly, Thine alone, I am,
Be Thou alone my constant flame.

2.O grant that nothing In my soul
May dwell but Thy pure love alone;
O may Thy love possess me whole,
My  Joy, my treasure,and  my crown:
Strange flames far from my heart remove;
My  every act, word, thought, be love.

3.O Love, how cheering is Thy ray;
All pain before Thy presence flies,
Care, anguish, sorrow, melt away,
Where'er   Thy    healing  beams arise :
O Jesu, nothing may I see,
Nothing desire, or seek, but Thee.

4.Unwearied may I this pursue,
Dauntless to the high prize aspire;
Hourly within my soul renew
This holy flame, this heavenly fire;
And day and night be all my care
To guard the sacred treasure there.

God of my life, through all my days

1. GOD of my life, through all my days
My grateful powers shall sound Thy praise;
My song shall wake with opening light,
And cheer the dark and silent night.

2.When anxious cares would break my rest,
And griefs would tear my throbbing breast,
Thy tuneful praises, raised on high,
Shall check the murmur and the sigh.

3. When death o'er nature shall prevail,
And all the powers of language fall,
Joy   through   my   swimming   eyes shall break,
And mean the thanks I cannot speak.

4.But O when that last conflict's o'er,
And I am chained to earth no more,
With what glad accents shall I rise
To Join the music of the skies

5. Soon shall I learn the exalted
strains Which echo through the heavenly plains;
And emulate, with Joy unknown,
The   glowing  seraphs round  the throne.

6. The cheerful tribute will I give
Long as a deathless soul shall live;
A work so sweet, a theme so high,
Demands and crowns eternity.

I will praise my maker while I have breath

1.I'LL praise my Maker while I've breath;
And when my voice is lost in death,
Praise  shall  employ  my  nobler powers :
My days of praise shall ne'er be past,
While life, and thought,
and being last, Or immortality endures.

2.Happy the man whose hopes rely
On Israel's God! He made the sky,
And  earth,  and  seas,
with  all their train :
His truth for ever stands secure;
He saves the oppressed. He feeds the poor,
And none shall find His promise vain.

3.The  Lord  pours  eyesight on  the blind;
The   Lord   supports   the   fainting mind;
He   sends   the   labouring   con¬science peace;
He helps the stranger In distress,
The widow, and the fatherless,
And  grants the  prisoner sweet release.

4.I'll praise Him while He lends me breath;
And when my voice is lost In death,
Praise shall  employ my nobler powers :
My days of praise shall ne'er be past,
While life, and thought,
and being last, Or Immortality endures.

He made by Moses known;
But sent the world His truth and grace
By His beloved Son.

My heart, my strength, my life,
my all Are His, and His for ever.

3. I've  found a Friend;O such a Friend!
All power to Him is given,
To guard me on my onward course
And bring me safe to heaven.

So now to watch, to work,to war,
And then to rest for ever.

4.I've found a Friend;O such a Friend,
So kind, and true, and tender
So wise a Counsellor and Guide,So mighty a Defender
From Him who loves me now so well

Interposed His precious blood.

Dally I'm constrained to be

Take my heart, O take and seal It,
Seal it from Thy courts above

With healing balm my soul He fills,
And every faithless murmur stills :

The glittering sky, the silver sea;
For all their beauty, all their worth,
Their light and glory, come from Tiee.

The trees that wave their arms above,
The hills that gird our dwellings round,
As  Thou  dost  gird  Thine  own with love.

More glorious,Father,in Thy sight,
Is one pure deed, one holy prayer,
One heart that owns Thy Spirit's might.

eye On all the gifts Thy Love has given,
Help us in Thee to live and die,
By Thee to rise from earth to heaven.  

when all thy mercies run on me o my God

My rising soul surveys,
Transported with the view,
I'm lost In wonder, love and praise.

2.Unnumbered comforts on my soul
Thy tender care bestowed,
Before my infant heart conceived
From whom those comforts flowed.

3. Through hidden dangers,toils,and deaths,
It gently cleared my way;
And through the pleasing snares of vice,
More to be feared than they.

4. Ten thousand thousand  precious gifts
My daily thanks employ;
Nor Is the least a thankful heart,
That takes those gifts with joy.

5. Through every period of my life
Thy goodness I'll pursue;
And after death. In distant worlds,
The glorious theme renew.

6. Through all eternity, to Thee
A grateful song I'll raise;
But O eternity's too short
To utter all Thy praise!

A way no more expected,

By crystal walls protected.

And marched triumphant over.

That burst our bonds in sunder,

And led us safely over

And ever brings us nigher.

To which Thou shalt restore us;

That all the earth surveys,
That rides upon the stormy sky,
And calms the roaring seas:
This awful God Is ours,
Our Father and our love;

His heavenly powers, To carry us above.

3.There we shall see His face,
And never, never sin;
There, from the rivers of His grace,
Drink endless pleasures in:

To that Immortal state,

Glory begun below;
Celestial fruit on earthly ground
From, faith and hope may grow :

And every tear be dry;

With beams of sacred bliss,
If Jesus shows His mercy mine
And whispers I am His.

clay At that transporting word,
Run up with Joy the shining way
To see and praise my Lord.

With success or victory,

Lest they grow self-satisfied

When the prayers that they have prayed,
Shall be fading from their hearts,
When their first warm faith departs:

Keep them faithful to the end.
