Christ The Pearl of great Price.
1 YE glittring toys of earth, adieu ;
A nobler choice be mine:
A treasure all divine.
2 Be gone, unworthy of my cares,
Ye specious baits of sense ;
The Pearl of Price immense !
3 JESUS, to multitudes unknown,
O Name divinely sweet!
Wealth, honour, pleasure, meet.
Ą Should both the Indies, at my call,
Their boasted stores resign;
For leave to call Thee mine.
5 Should earth's vain treasures all depart;
Of this dear gift possess'd,
And be for ever bless'd.
6 Dear Sov'reign of my soul's desires,
Thy love is bliss divine ;
And bid me call Thee mine.
Christ our Physician.
i DEEP are the wounds which sin has made;
Where shall the sinner find a cure ?
The work exceeds all nature's pow'r,
2 Sin, like a raging fever, reigns
With fatal strength in ev'ry part;
And spreads it's poison to the heart. 3 And can no sov'reign balm be found?
And is no kind physician nigh
Ere life and hope for ever fly? 4 There is a great Physician near;
Look up, O faiņting soul, and live;
Such ease as nature cannot give!
5 See in the SAVIOUR's dying blood
Life, health, and bliss, abundant flow! 'Tis only this dear sacred flood
Can ease thy pain, and heal thy woe. 6 Sin throws in vain it's pointed dart;
For here a sov'reign cure is found,
A balm for every painful wound.
Christ our Hiding-place.
i Hall, sov'reign Love, that first began
The scheme to rescue fall'n man;
2 Against the God who rules the sky,
I fought with hands uplifted high;
Too proud to seek a hiding-place.
Where mercy dwells in ev'ry word:
To Jesus as my hiding-place. 4. Should storms of seven-fold thunder roll,
And shake the globe from pole to pole,
For Jesus is my hiding-place.
Thus must have sunk a world to hell:
6 A few more rolling suns at most,
Will land me on fair Canaan's coast,
Christ the Resurrection and the Life.
AM,” saith CHRIST our glorious Head, -
The Life of all that live.
By faith in Me, the soul receives
New life, though dead before ;
Shall live, to die no more,”
3 Fulfil Thy promise, gracious LORD,
On us assembled here;
And cause the dead to hear.
4 Preserve the power of faith alive
In those who love Thy Name; For sin and Satan daily strive
To quench the sacred flame.
5 Thy power and mercy first prevail'd,
From death to set us free;
If not renew'd by Thee.
6 To Thee we look, to Thee we bow,
To Thee for help we call;
Our Hope, our Joy, our All,
Christ our Wisdom, Righteousness, Sanctification, and
We lie till CHRIST restores the light;
2 Our guilty souls are drown'd in tears
Till His atoning blood appears ;
frame is mix'd with sin;
4 Jesus beholds where Satan reigns,
Binding his slaves in heavy chains;
The iron bondage from our necks.
Grace, wisdom, power, and righteousness;
