Tell me, my Saviour, who am I,
That I should see thy face?
I would be ever thine:
With beams of mercy shine.
On thy redeeming grace;
My dear Redeemer's praise.
3. PUBLIC WORSHIP.
L. M. 490. The Enjoyment of Christ ; or, Delight in
from my thoughts, vain world, begone, Let my religious hours alone: Fain would my eyes my Saviour see,
I wait a visit, Lord, from thee.
And kindles with a pure desire:
And feed my soul with heavenly lore. 3 Bless'd Jesus, what delicious fare!
How sweet thy entertainments are!
Redeeming grace, and dying love. 4 Hail, great Immanuel, all divine,
In thee thy Father's glories shine;
Psalm lxxxiv. 119
OW lovely, how divinely sweet,
Fain would my longing passions meet
The glories of thy presence there.
Whom thy indulgent favours raise
And sing thy never-ceasing praise. 3 One day within thy sacred gate
Affords more real joy to me,
The meanest place is bliss with thee.
From his reviving presence flows;
To guard us from surrounding foes. 5 O Lord of hosts, thou God of grace,
How blest, divinely blest, is he,
L. M. 492. To be sung between prayer and sermon. 1 WHERE two or three, with sweet accord,
Obedient to their sovereign Lord, Meet to recount his acts of grace,
And offer solemn prayer and praise;
Amid this little company;
And shed my glories round the place.” 3 We meet at thy command, dear Lord,
Relying on thy faithful word:
C. M. 493.
For christian worship.
Send dowu a coal of heav'nly fire
To warm each waiting heart.
Our fainting hope to raise;
That we may render praise.
And love and concord dwell:
The wounded spirit heal.
T'he humble mind bestow;
To make our graces grow.
In faith present our pray’rs;
Unbosom all our cares.
Enforc'd by mighty grace,
L. M. 494.
Before Sermon. 1 THY presence, gracious God, afford,
Prepare us to receive thy word:
And faith be mixt with what we hear: 2 Distracting thoughts and cares remove
And fix our hearts and hopes above:
And satisfied with living bread. 3 To us the sacred word apply,
With sovereign power and energy;
4 Father, in us thy Son reveal;
Teach us to know and do thy will:
Before Sermon. 1 JESUS, thou dear redeeming Lord,
Thy blessing we implore.
The great, effectual door.
From sin and satan's power!
And know their gracious hour.
What thou hast bought so dear;
With all thy wounds appear! 9 Appear, as when
of old confest The suffering Son of God; And let us see thee in thy vest
But newly dipt in blood. 5 The hardness of our hearts remove,
Thou who for sin hast died; Show us the tokens of thy love, Thy feet, thy hands, thy side.
C. M. 496.
Prayer for the Spirit's Influence. * In thy great name, O Lord, we come,
pour thy Holy Spirit down
On all that now shall meet.
To hear the Saviour's voice:
3 Teach us to pray, and praise, and hear,
And understand thy word;
And trust our living Lord.
Thy love and mercy known;
And break this flinty stone. 5 Let sinners, Lord, thy goodness prove,
And saints rejoice in thee;
And to the Saviour flee.
This congregation bless;
Thy glorious righteousness.
P. M. 497. Humble Request. Jer. xxix. 15. 1 LORD, we come before thee now,
At thy feet we humbly bow;
Shall we seek thee, Lord, in vain? 2 In thire own appointed way,
Now we seek thee, here we stay;
'Till a blessing thou bestow.
That may joy and peace afford;
Make them strong in faith and hope. 5 Grant that all may seek and find Thee a God supremely kind;
