For no foundation is there giv'n,
2 Possessing CHRIST, I all possess;
39. Fountain. 148th.
In that day there shall be a fountain opened to the house of David, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, for sin and for uncleanness.ZECH. xii. 1.
HAIL, everlasting spring!
2 Blest be his wounded side,
Shall make us clean
And fit for GOD.
3 To that blest source of love
With rapt'rous songs
40. Fountain. C. M.
For as much as ye know that ye were redeemed
with the precious blood of CHRIST, as of a lamb, without blemish, and without spot.-1 PET. i. 18, 19.
THERE is a fountain fill'd with blood,
2 The dying thief rejoic'd to see
3 Dear dying Lamb, thy precious blood Shall never lose its pow'r,
Till all the ransom'd Church of God
4 E'er since by faith I saw the stream Thy flowing wounds supply, Redeeming love has been my theme, And shall be till I die.
5 And when this lisping, stainm'ring tongue
Lies silent in the grave,
6 [Lord, I believe thou hast prepar'd
For me a blood-bought free reward,
7 'Tis strung, and tun'd for endless years, And form'd by pow'r divine,
To sound in God the Father's ears
How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God.-HEB. ix. 14.
BLESSED fountain, full of grace!
2 What I am; as one redeem'd
Sav'd and rescued by the Lord; Hating what I once esteem'd;
Loving what I once abhorr❜d.
3 What I hope to be; ere long,
4 Then, I hope "like him to be"
Who redeem'd his Saints from sin : Whom I now obscurely see,
Through a veil that stands between.
5 When I "see him as he is,"
No corruption can remain:
6 Blessed fountain, full of grace!
It shall come to pass that every thing that liveth, which moveth, whithersoever the rivers shall come, shall live. -EZEK. xlvii. 9.
SEE, from Zion's sacred mountain,
Who its sov'reign virtues know.
2 Thro' ten thousand channels flowing,
Hail! the long expected day.
3 Gladden'd by the flowing treasure,
Lo, the desert smiles with pleasure,
4 Trees of life the banks adorning,
43. The Friend of his People. L. M.
This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that CHRIST JESUS came into the world to save sinners. -1 TIM. i. 15,
POOR, weak, and worthless tho' I am,
