3 Make us into one spirit drink:
Baptize into thy name;
And sweetly speak the same.
4 Touch'd by the loadstone of thy love,
Let all our hearts agree;
And ever move tow'rds thee.
5 To thee inseparably join'd,
Let all our spirits cleave : O may we all the loving wind
That was in thee receive!
6 This is the bond of perfectness,
Thy spotless charity;
The inind that was in thee!
7 Grant this, and then from all below,
Insensibly remove; Our souls their change shall scarcely know,
Made perfect first in love. 8 With ease, our souls thro' death shall glide
Into their paradise,
Triumphant thro' the skies.
9 Yet when the fullest joy is given,
The same delight we prove :
Our All in All is love,
Hymn 227. P. M.
Christ to praise in hymns divine
Celebrate the feast of love.
Let the purer flame revive;
Partners of like precious faith. 3 Sing we then in Jesu's name,
Now as yesterday the same,
We are Jesu's witnesses.
We with him are crucified:
Hymn 228. P. M.
Humbly stoop to earth again;
Come, and sit, and banquet there. 3 2 Jesus, we thy promise claim;
We are met in thy great name;
Make our feast a feast of love. 3 Let the fruits of grace abound;
Let us in thy bowels sound;
Full of goodness, full of thee. 4 Make us all in thee complete :
Make us all for glory ineet:
Hymn 229. C. M. COME le twist nuse the grace divine, In a perpetual cov'nant join
Ourselves to Christ the Lord.
His name to glorify;
For God to live and die.
Be ever kept in mind;
Or cast his words behind.
Who bears our solemn vow;
Come down and meet us now!
Let all our hearts receive; Present with the celestial host,
The peaceful answer give.
Which takes our sins away;
Admitting a Member.
Enter, and find that God is here.
2 'Scap'd from the world, redeem'd from sie,
By fiends pursu'd, by men abhorr'd, Come in, poor fugitive, come in,
And share the portion of thy Lord. 3 Welcome from earth -lo, the right hand
Or fellowship to thee we give! With open arms and hearts we stand,
And thee in Jesu's name receive. 4 Say, is thy heart resolv'd as ours ?
Then let it burn with sacred love; Then let it taste the heavenly powers,
Partaker of the joys above. 5 Jesus, attend, thyself reveal!
Are we not met in thy great name? Thee in the midst we wait to feel,
We wait to catch the spreading flame. 6 Thou God that answerest by fire,
The Sp'rit of burning now impart; And let the flames of pure desire,
Rise from the altar of each heart. 7 Truly our fellowship below
With thee and with the Father is; In thee eternal life we know,
And heaven's unutterable bliss. 8 In part we only know thee here,
But wait thy coming from above;
Visiting a Friend.
Peace on all that here reside;
