1. Just as I am-with-out one plea, But that Thy blood was shed for me, And
Melody by Mrs. M. DE L. LOVE.
2. Jesus, my hope, my rock, my shield! Whose precious blood was shed for me, Into Thy hands my soul I yield;
Saviour! I come, I come to Thee.
3. Spirit of glory and of God!
Long hast Thou deigned my guide to be;
4. I come to join that countless host,
Who praise Thy name unceasingly; Blest Father, Son, and Holy Ghost! My God! I come, I come to Thee.
400. L. M.
1. THOU Only Sovereign of my heart,
My Refuge, my almighty FriendAnd can my soul from Thee depart,
On whom alone my hopes depend!
2. Whither, ah! whither shall I go,
A wretched wanderer from my Lord? Can this dark world of sin and wo
One glimpse of happiness afford?
3. Eternal life Thy words impart;
On these my fainting spirit lives; Here sweeter comforts cheer my heart, Than all the round of nature gives.
4. Let earth's alluring joys combine;
While Thou art near, in vain they call; One smile, one blissful smile of Thine,
My dearest Lord, outweighs them all. 5. Thy name my inmost powers adore;
Thou art my life, my joy, my care; Depart from Thee-'t is death-'t is more 'T is endless ruin, deep despair!
6. Low at Thy feet my soul would lie;
Here safety dwells, and peace divine;
Be-hold the form I love so well, And all His ten-der words re

2. The world shut out from all my soul,
And heaven brought in with all its bliss; Oh! is there aught from pole to pole,
One moment to compare with this?
3. This is the hidden life I prize,
A life of penitential love;
And raise my highest thoughts above.
4. When all I am I clearly see,
And freely own, with deepest shame; When the Redeemer's love to me
Kindles within a deathless flame.
5. Thus would I live till nature fail,
And all my former sins forsake; Then rise to God, within the vail, And of eternal joys partake.
402. L. M.
1. On the sweet wonders of that cross,
2. I would for ever speak His name,
In sounds to mortal ears unknown; With angels join to praise the Lamb, And worship at His Father's throne. WATTS.

1. COME, now, ye wanderers, to your God, Through love, to purity restored;
The proffered benefit embrace, The plenitude of Heavenly grace:

1. STAY, thou insulted Spirit, stay!
Though I have done Thee such despite, Cast not a sinner quite away,
Nor take Thine everlasting flight.
2. Though I have most unfaithful been
Of all whoe'er Thy grace received;
3. Yet O! the chief of sinners spare,
In honor of my great High Priest; Nor, in Thy righteous anger, swear
I shall not see Thy people's rest.
4. O Lord, my weary soul release,
And raise me by Thy gracious hand;
406. L. M.
1. SHOW pity, Lord, O Lord, forgive;
Are not Thy mercies large and free?
2. My crimes are great, but don't surpass
3. O wash my soul from every sin,
4. My lips with shame my sins confess,

1. WHEN Jesus' friend had ceased to be,
But ere His eyes could see, they wept. 2. Lord! not in sepulchres alone
Corruption's worm is rank and free; The shroud of death our bosoms ownThe shades of sorrow! come and see.
3. Come, Lord! God's image can not shine
Where sin's funereal darkness lowersCome! turn those weeping eyes of Thine Upon these sinning souls of ours!
4. And let those eyes, with shepherd care,
Their moving watch above us keep; Till love the strength of sorrow wear, And as Thou weepedst, we may weep.
5. For surely we may weep to know,
So dark and deep our spirit's stain,
AMBER. L. M. 6 lines,
Would Jesus have the sinner die? Why hangs He then on yonder tree? What means that strange ex-piring cry? Sin-ners, He plays
for you and me;
For-give them, Fa-ther, O for-give! They know not that by Me they live.

2. Thou loving, all-atoning Lamb-

1. WEARY of wandering from my God,
Yet not in hopeless grief I mourn;
Open Thine arms, and take me in!
3. Thou know'st the way to bring me back, My fallen spirit to restore;
O, for Thy truth and mercy's sake,
Forgive, and bid me sin no more:
414. L. M. 6 lines.
1. LOOSED from my God, and far removed,
Nor found whereon to rest below:
2. Selfish pursuits, and nature's maze,
The things of sense, for Thee I leave:
Into the ark of love receive;
3. Endow me with my Saviour's peace,
Confirm and keep my longing heart;
415. L. M. 6 lines.
1. O LOVE, of pure and heavenly birth!
2. Whence comes it, that, your power the
As Iis on high, from whom you came,
Or heart, that makes you welcome here?
3. Then let the price be what it may,
