423. Eights. The Prayer of the repenting Backslider,

H! give me, Lord, myself to fee,

[ocr errors]

Hów weak am I, when left by thee,

How frail, how apt to fall away;
If but a moment thou withdraw,
That moment sees me break thy law.
Jesus, the fipner's only trust,

Let me now feel thy grace infus'd;
Ah!! raise a captive from the duft,

Nor break a reed already bruis'd!
Visit me, 'Lord, id peace again,
Nor let me seek thy face in vain.
O gracious Lord, now let me find

Peace and salvation in thy name;
Be thou the eye-fight of the blind,

The staff and ancles.of the lame; My lifter up whene'er I fall, My ftrengh, my portion, and my all. iv Let thy meek mind descend on me,

Thy Holy Spirit from above! Aflift me, Lord, to follow thee,

Drawn by th' endearing cords of love; Made perfect by thy cleansing blood, Completely savid and born of God.


C. M.
Imploring the Presence of God.

LORDyilda blend the beauteous face!

And angels round the throne will say

'Tis all the heav'n they know..
A glimpfe--a Gngle glimpse of thee

Would more delight my soul
Than this vain world, with all its joys,

Could I possess the whole.

The Lord bath laid on him the Iniquity of us all.


CHARG'D with the complicated load

1. Of all his people's debt, By faith I see the Lamb of God

Expire beneath its weight.
My guilt, transferr'd from me to him,
Shall never more be found

; ; Loft in his blood's atoning stream,

And in that fountain drown'd."
My mighty fins to thee are known;

But mightier still is He,
Who laid his life a ransom down,

And pleads his death for me.

FORGIVE the song that falls so low
Beneath the gratitude Lore !
It means thy praise, however poofs :
And Serapb-tongues can do no more.
