Hymn

Before Sermon.

1

THY

presence, gracious GOD, afford; Prepare us to receive Thy Word : Now let Thy voice engage our ear, And faith be mix'd with what we hear : Thus, LORD, Thy waiting servants bless, And crown Thy Gospel with success.

2 Distracting thoughts and cares remove,

And fix our hearts and hopes above;
With food divine may we be fed,
And satisfied with living bread :
Thus, LORD, thy waiting servants bless,
And crown Thy Gospel with success.

3 To us the sacred Word apply,

With sov'reign pow'r and energy;
And may we, in Thy faith and fear,
Reduce to practice what we hear:
Thus, LORD, Thy waiting servants bless,
And crown Thy Gospel with success.

4 FATHER, in us Thy Son reveal,

Teach us to know and do Thy will :
Thy saving pow'r and love display ;
And guide us to the realms of day:
Thus, LORD, Thy waiting servants bless,
And crown Thy Gospel with success.

Dymn.

Before Sermon. 1 DEAREST SAVIOUR, help Thy servant

To proclaim Thy wondrous love; Pour Thy grace upon this people, That Thy truth they may approve :

Bless, O bless them,
From Thy shining courts above.
2 Now Thy gracious Word invites them

To partake the Gospel-feast :
Let Thy SPIRIT sweetly draw them;
Every soul be Jesu's guest!

O receive us, Let us find Thy promis'd rest. 3 Come, Thou soul-transforming SPIRIT,

Bless the sower and the seed;
Let each heart Thy grace inherit;
Raise the weak, the hungry feed;

From the Gospel
Now supply the people's need.

Wymn.

After Sermon.

i SAVIOUR, follow with Thy blessing

Truths deliver'd in Thy Name;
Thus the Word Thy pow'r possessing,

Shall declare from whence it came :
Mighty let the Gospel be,
All subduing, LORD, to Thee.

2 Let the Word be food to nourish

Those whom Thou hast call’d Thine own: Let Thy people's graces flourish,

Flourish to Thy praise alone : Thou who mad'st the sinner live,

Further life alone canst give. 3 Let the sinner see his danger;

Show him, LORD, his fearful state,
While he lives to Thee a stranger,

Loving what his soul should hate:
Let him now Thy truth receive:
Let him now repent and live.

Wymn.

After Sermon.

1 WHAT now is my object and aim?

What now is my hope and desire?
To follow the heav'nly LAMB,

And after His image aspire :
My hope is all centred in Thee;

I trust to recover Thy love;
On earth Thy salvation to see,

And then to enjoy it above.

2 I thirst for a life-giving GOD,

A GOD that on Calvary died;
A fountain of water and blood,

That gush'd from IMMANUEL's side!
I long for the streams of Thy love,

The spirit of rapture unknown;
And then to re-drink it above,

Eternally fresh from the throne.

bymn. Dismission.

1 BLEST be the dear uniting love,

That will not let us part;
Our bodies may far off remove ;

We still are one in heart.
2 Join’d in one spirit to our Head,

Where He appoints we go :
And still in JESU's footsteps tread,

And show His praise below.

3 O may we ever walk in Him!

And nothing know beside,
Nothing desire, nothing esteem,

But JESUS crucified !

4 Closer and closer let us cleave

To His belov'd embrace;
Expect His fulness to receive,

And grace to answer grace.
5 Partakers of the SAVIOUR's grace,

The same in mind and heart;
Nor joy, nor grief, nor time, nor place,

Nor life, nor death, can part.

6 But let us hasten to the day

Which shall our flesh restore,
When death shall all be done away,

And bodies part no more!

Dismission.

1

O LET our heart and mind

Continually ascend,
That haven of repose to find,

Where all our labours end !

2

Where all our toils are o'er,

Our suff'ring and our pain;
Who meet on that eternal shore,

Shall never part again.

3 O happy, happy place,

Where saints and angels meet! There we shall see each other's face,

And all our brethren greet. 4

The church of the first-born,

We shall with them be blest,
And, crown'd with endless joy, return

To our eternal rest.

5

We shall our time beneath

Live out in cheerful hope,
And fearless pass the vale of death,

And gain the mountain top.

6

To gather home his own

GOD shall his angels send,
And bid our bliss, on earth begun,

In deathless triumph end.
