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.
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. 7s. M. [#]
Characters of Christ. 1 MEDIATOR, Son of God,
Spread thy boundless love abroad :
Fill the world with truth and grace. 2 Sun of Righteousness, arise ;
Send thy light around the skies :
Feed our souls with living bread. 3 Leader of the halt and blind,
Raise to life the sinking mind :
Grace to every soul impart. 4 Opener of the sealed book,
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.
His glory, grace, and majesty ;
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 : He's brighter than ten thousand suns,
With beams of mercy in his face. 3 Sin, now condemned, shall cease to be,
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 chase the darkness of our night, And bring the nations home to God.
DEATH OF CHRIST.
HYMN 185. L. M. [b]
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. [b]
Sufferings and Death of Christ.
And did my Jesus die ?
For such a worm as I?
2 Was it for crimes that I had done
He groaned upon the tree?
And love beyond degree !
And shut his glories in,
To save a world from sin.
While his dear cross appears,
heart in thankfulness,
The debt of love I owe;
HYMN 187. C. M. [b]
Christ's Death and Exaltation. 1 YE humble souls, who seek the Lord, Chase all your
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 ;
