2 See, Jesus stands with
is room. 3 In Jesus' condescending heart
Both love and pity meet ; Nor will he bid the soul depart,
That trembles at his feet.
The blessings of his love,
Of nobler joys above.
HYMN 261. L. M. [#]
Behold the fast-declining sun;
'Tis time our labours were begun. 2 O be not faithless in the Lord :
Whate'er is right we shall receive;
He will immortal treasures give. 3 Lord, in thy vineyard we appear,
To labour in the works of love;
Nor from thy precepts ever rove. 4 And when thy labourers all come home,
May each, with joy, thy goodness see; Nor fault what boundless grace has done,
In setting man from bondage free.
HYMN 262. C. M. [#]
God is Love. 1 COME, ye that know and love the Lord,
And raise your thoughts above;
To sing that God is Love.
And all his mercies prove;
To show that God is Love.
With those who from him rove,
To teach them God is Love.
This blessing well improve,
Proclaim that God is Love.
HYMN 263. 7s. M. [#]
Come, and make my path your choice ;
Weary pilgrim, hither come.
Long hast borne the proud world's scorn; Long hast roamed the barren waste, Weary pilgrim, hither haste.
3 Ye who, tossed on beds of pain,
Seek for ease, but seek in vain ;
Watch to see the morning rise;-
Who the stings of guilt can bear ? 5 Sinner, come ; for here is found
Balm that flows for every wound,
HYMN 264. C. M. [#]
Invitation. 1 YE favoured children of the Lord, Ye loved, ye
race, Come, listen to the cheering word
Of our Redeemer's grace. 2 O come; attend the Saviour's call;
He only life can give;
Is, Come, believe, and live. 3 But man, regardless of his words,
From Jesus doth depart;
His unbelieving heart. 4 Hasten, O God, that glorious day,
In thine own plan designed,
When thou wilt take the veil away
From each benighted mind. 5 Then sinners shall with grateful hearts
The Saviour's name adore;
Shall tempt their souls no more.
HYMN 265. C. M. [#]
Inviting us to come ;
To welcome pilgrims home. 2 There, on a green and flowery mount,
Our weary souls shall sit,
The labours of our feet. 3 No vain discourse shall fill our tongue,
Nor trifles vex our ear ;
shall be our song, And heaven rejoice to hear. 4 Eternal glory to the King
That brought us safely through ; Our tongue shall never cease to sing,
And endless praise renew.
HYMN 266. L. M. [#]
Jesus' Call. 1 COME, all ye weary, fainting souls,
Ye heavy laden sinners, come;
l'll give you rest from all your toils,
And lead you to my heavenly home. 2 Ye shall find rest, that learn of me;
I'm of a meek and lowly mind; But passion rages like the sea,
And pride is restless as the wind. 3 Blest is the man whose shoulders take
My yoke, and bear it with delight : My yoke is easy to his neck ;
My grace shall make the burden light. 4 Jesus, we come at thy command,
With faith, and hope, and humble zeal, Resign our spirits to thy hand,
To rule and guide us at thy will.
HYMN 267. 8 & 7s. M. [#]
Call to Zion.
Bounteous Source of every joy,
He whose word can all destroy !
Now the grateful tribute raise ;
Join the universal praise.
Here no peal of thunder rolls :
