2 Light of those whose dreary dwelling Bordered on the shades of death, He hath, by his grace revealing, Scattered all the clouds beneath. 3 Father, Source of all compassion,
Pure, unbounded Love thou art; Hail, the God of our salvation, Praise him, every thankful heart! 4 Joyfully on earth adore him,
Till in heaven we take our place; There, enraptured, fall before him,
Lost in wonder, love, and praise.
HYMN 296. C. M. [#]
1 RAISE your triumphant songs
Let the wide earth resound the deeds
2 Sing how eternal Love
Its brightest Image chose,
3 Now, sinners, dry your tears; Let hopeless sorrow cease; Bow to the sceptre of his love,
And take the offered peace.
4 Lord, we obey thy call;
HYMN 297. C. M. [#]
Grace perfected in Glory.
1 How rich thy favours, God of grace!
Full as the ocean they are poured,
2 God to eternal glory calls,
And points the wondrous way
3 The songs of everlasting years
HYMN 298. C. M. [#]
Nature and Grace.
1 INDULGENT Father, how divine,
2 But in the nobler work of grace
Reflected from the Saviour's face,
3 Such wonders, Lord, while we survey,
4 When glimmering life resigns its flame,
5 But, O, how blessed our songs shall rise
HYMN 299. L. M. [#]
1 To thee my heart, eternal King,
2 All nature shows thy boundless love,
3 There Jesus bids our sorrows cease,
4 For grace like this, O may our song
HYMN 300. C. M. [# or b]
Sufficiency of Grace.
1 WHY does your face, ye humble souls, Those mournful colours wear?
What doubts are these that waste your faith, And nourish your despair?
2 What though your mighty guilt beyond The wide creation go,
And hath its strong foundations laid
3 See, here an endless ocean flows
4 It rises high, and drowns the hills,
5 Awake, our hearts, adore the grace
HYMN 301. L. M. [#]
Grace of God through Christ.
2 We praise thy free, thy heavenly grace,
3 He, thine eternal love decreed,
Should many sons to glory lead;
4 A scene of wonders here we see,
HYMN 302. C. M. [# or b]
1 My God, the visits of thy face
To all the flattering world can give,
2 But clouds and darkness intervene ;
3 Lord, guide my roving heart to thee; Unsatisfied I stray:
Break through the shades of sense and sin
4 Lord, raise my faith, my hope, my heart,
