HYMN 180. 7. M. [#]
King of Salem.
Hear thy wounded servants plead ;
Calm the tempest of the mind. 2 May the King of Salem now
Cause each stubborn heart to bow;
Bringing peace, and hope, and joy. 3 Lord, no tithes to thee we give;
Life, and strength, and all we have,
O receive us as thine own.
Fit us for our heavenly home,
HYMN 181. L. M. [#]
Christ the Pattern.
1 When Jesus dwelt in mortal clay,
What were his works, from day to day,
grace, Which spread salvation through our race? 2 Teach us, O Lord, to keep in view
Thy pattern, and thy steps pursue ;
HYMN 182. 75. M. [#]
Characters of Christ.
Spread thy boundless love abroad :
grace. 2 Sun of Righteousness, arise ;
Send thy light around the skies :
Feed our souls with living bread.
Raise to life the sinking mind :
Grace to every soul impart.
Cause the world therein to look :
HYMN 183. L. M. [#]
Characters of Christ.
And all the kindred nations bless;
Nor shall his spreading kingdom cease. 2 In him the naked soul shall find
A hiding-place from chilling wind ;
3 In burning sands, and thirsty ground,
He like a river shall be found ;
The weary traveller rests his head. 4 The dimness
HYMN 184. L. M. [+]
Jacob's Star. 1 Behold the long-expected Light !
"Tis Jacob's Star, and Jesse's Root; The sun itself is not so bright,
Nor bears a tree such heavenly fruit. 2 With spreading glories, lo, he comes,
And gloomy darkness flies apace :
With beams of mercy in his face.
The righteous Judge shall bear the sway, Shall set our race from bondage free,
And take all guilt and wo away. 4 Roll on, thou glorious Star of light,
Display thy matchless grace abroad,
And bring the nations home to God.
DEATH OF CHRIST.
HYMN 185 L. M. 
Death of Christ. 1 He dies ! the Friend of sinners dies !
Lo, Salem's daughters weep around, A solemn darkness veils the skies,
A sudden trembling shakes the ground ! 2 Here's love and grief beyond degree;
The Lord of glory dies for men ; But, lo, what sudden joys we see,
Jesus, the dead, revives again! 3 Break off your tears, ye saints, and say,
How high your great Deliverer reigns ; Sing how he rose to endless day,
And led the tyrant Death in chains : 4 Say, Live forever, glorious King,
Born to redeem, and strong to save ! Then ask the monster, Where's thy sting,
And, Where's thy victory, boasting grave ?
HYMN 186. C. M. 
Sufferings and Death of Christ. 1 Alas! and did
Saviour bleed ?
my Jesus die ?
For such a worm as I ?
2 Was it for crimes that I had done
He groaned upon the tree? Amazing pity! grace unknown !
And love beyond degree ! 3 Well might the sun in darkness hide,
And shut his glories in, When Christ, the great Redeemer, died
To save a world from sin.
While his dear cross appears,
And melt my eyes in tears.
The debt of love I owe;
'Tis all that I can do.
HYMN 187. C. M. [b]
Christ's Death and Exaltation. 1 YE humble souls, who seek the Lord, Chase all
The place where Jesus lay.
Such wonders love can do :
Which throbbed and bled for you. , 3 A moment give your hearts to grief,
And mourn your Saviour slain ;
