Teachings of the Spirit.
Whose power and grace are unconfined,
2 To mine illumined eyes display
The glorious truth thy word reveals ;
3 Thine inward teachings make me know
The mysteries of redeeming love,
4. While through this dubious maze I stray,
Spread, like the sun, thy beams abroad,
For the Holy Spirit.
i Gracious Spirit, Love divine !
Let thy light within me shine;
2 Life and peace to me impart ;
Seal salvation on my heart:
3 Let me never from thee stray,
Keep me in the narrow way;

Spiritual Influences compared to Rain.
Watering the pastures o'er and o'er,
2 As, in soft silence, vernal showers
Descend and cheer the fainting flowers,
3 That heavenly influence let me find
In holy silence of the mind,
4 Nor let these blessings be confined
To me, but poured on all mankind;
7 & 6s. M. 368. WESLEYAN.
The Whispers of the Spirit.
And bid my heart rejoice;
The comfort of thy voice;
Never in the whirlwind found,
Or where earthquakes rock the place, Still and silent is the sound,
The whisper of thy grace.
And tumult I withdraw;
I wait with humble awe;
Dare not in thy presence move; To my waiting soul reveal
The secret of thy love.
The Spirit desired.
Behold, thy servants wait;
We flock around thy gate.
Thy Spirit, from above,
And fire our hearts with love.
3 Blest earnest of eternal joy,
Declare our sins forgiven, And bear, with energy divine,
Our raptured thoughts to heaven. 4 Diffuse, O God, refreshing showers,
That earth its fruit may yield, And change this barren wilderness
To Carmel's flowery field.

CAMPBELL's Col. Pleading the Promise of the Spirit. 1 0 Thou that hearest prayer, Attend our humble
Thy blessing from on high :
Their children when they cry,
Their varied wants supply,
We, children of thy grace:
Descend and fill the place :
Descending from above,
With fervent zeal and love :
On all the nations, Lord,
The preaching of thy word,

The Teaching Spirit.
Bend o’er us a pitying eye;
Bid the power of sin depart. 2 Light up every dark recess
Of our heart's ungodliness;
devious way Where our steps have gone astray.
Teach us, with repentant grief,
And our broken spirits heal.
And pursue the heavenly race,
COME, Holy Spirit, come!
Let thy bright beam arise ; Dispel the sorrow from our minds,
The darkness from our eyes.
Convince us all of sin;
Lead us to thine abode, And to our wondering view reveal
Thy mercies, O our God!
