Whither should a sinner go?
His arms for me are open wide;
Only JESUS would 1 know,

And JESUS crucified.]

4 What though all my nature's sin?
More boundless is his grace;
JESU's blood will make me clean
From all unrighteousness:
This shall wash me white as snow,
On this for all things 1 confide;
Only JESUS will I know,
And JESUS crucified.

5 Him to know is life and peace,
And pleasure without end;
This be all my happiness,
On JESUS to depend;
Daily in his grace to grow,
And ever in his love abide;
Only JESUS would I know,
And JESUS crucified.

69. The Propitiation for Sin. 8—8—6.

Being justified freely by his grace, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus; whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood.-ROM. iii. 24, 25.

O THOU that hear'st the prayer of faith,
Wilt thou not save a soul from death,
That casts itself on thee?

I have no refuge of my own,
But fly to what my Lord hath done
And suffer'd cnce for me!

2 Deliver'd in the sinner's stead,'
Thy spotless righteousness I plead,
And thine atoning blood:

That righteousness my robe shall be;
Thy sacrifice avail for me,

And bring me near to GOD.

3 Then, snatch me from eternal death,
The Spirit of adoption breathe,
His consolations send:

By him some word of life impart,
And graciously assure my heart,
Thy Maker is thy Friend."

4 The king of terrors then would be
A welcome messenger to me,
To call my soul away:

Leaving the world and earthly things,
I'd mount upon his sable wings
To everlasting day.

70. The Purifier of his People. C.M.

Jesus answered him, if I wash thee not thou hast no part in me.-JOHN xiii. 8.

FOR ever here my rest shall be,
Close to thy bleeding side;
This all my hope, and all my plea,
For me the Saviour died.

2 My dying Saviour and my God,
Fountain for guilt and sin,

Sprinkle me ever with thy blood,
And cleanse, and keep me clean.

3 Wash me, and make me thus thine own:
Wash me, and mine thou art:
Wash me, but not my feet alone,
My hands, my head, my heart. {
4 Th' atonement of thy blood apply,
Till Faith to sight improve;
Till hope shall end in perfect joy,
And all my soul be love.

71. The Refuge of his People. 78.

Thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat. ISAIAH XXV. 4.

JESU, lover of my soul,
Let me to thy bosom fly,
While the raging billows roll,
While the tempest still is high:
Hide me, O my Saviour, hide,
Till the storm of life is past:
Safe into the haven guide;
O receive my soul at last!
2 Other refuge have I none;
Hangs my helpless soul on thee:
Leave, ah, leave me not alone,
Still support and comfort me!
All my trust on thee is stay'd,
All my help from thee I bring;
Cover my defenceless head
With the shadow of thy wing

3 Thou, O CHRIST, art all I want;
All in all in thee I find:

Raise the fallen, cheer the faint,
Heal the sick, and lead the blind!
Just and holy is thy name,

I am all unrighteousness;
Vile and full of sin I am,

Thou art full of truth and grace.

4 Plenteous grace with thee is found,
Grace to pardon all my sin;
Let the healing streams abound;
Make and keep me pure within!
Thou of life the fountain art,
Freely let me take of thee;
Spring thou up within my heart;
Rise to all eternity!

72. The Refuge of his People. C.M.

The Lord will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, Lord, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.-PSALM ix. 9, 10.

HE who on earth as Man was known,
And bore our sins and pains,
Now seated on th' eternal throne,
The GoD of glory reigns.

2 While harps unnumber'd sound his praise,

In yonder world above; /

His saints on earth admire his ways,
And glory in his love.

3 His righteousness to faith reveal'd,
Wrought out for guilty worms,
Affords a hiding-place and shield
From enemies and storms.

4 This land, thro' which his pilgrims go, Is desolate and dry;

But streams of grace from him o'erflow,
Their thirst to satisfy.

5 When troubles, like a burning sun,
Beat heavy on their head,

To this Almighty Rock they run,
And find refreshing shade.

6 How glorious he! how happy they
In such a glorious friend!

Whose love secures them all the way, And crowns them at the end.

73. The Resurrection & Life. C.M.

JESUS said unto her, I am the resurrection and the life : he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.-JOHN xi. 25.

"I AM," saith CHRIST, our glorious head (May we attention give), "The resurrection of the dead, "The life of all that live.

2"By faith in me, the soul receives "New life, though dead before; "And he that in my name believes, "Shall live to die no more."
