HYMN 211.

(111. 1.)
EPHESIANS V. 14-17.
SIN
SINNER! rouse thee from thy sleep,

Wake and o'er thy folly weep;
Raise thy spirit dark and dead, ! L

Jesus waits his light to shed.
2 Wake from sleep, arise from death,

See the bright and living path:

Watchful tread that path; be wise,
l

Leave thy folly, seek the skies.
3 Leave thy folly, cease from crime,

From this hour redeem thy time;
Life secure without delay,

Evil is the mortal day.
4 Be not blind and foolish still,

Call’d of Jesus, learn his will :

Jesus calls from death and night,
L
Jesus waits to shed his light.

HYMN 212.
!

(c. m.)
HEBREWS xii. 1, 2.
1
LOP

O! what a cloud of witnesses
2 Encompass us around;
Men once like us with suff'ring tried,

But now with glory crown'd.
2 Let us, with zeal like theirs inspir’d,

Strive in the Christian race;
And, freed from ev'ry weight of sin,

Their holy footsteps trace.
3 Behold a witness nobler still,

Who trod affliction's path ;
Jesus, the author, finisher,

Rewarder of our faith :
4 He, for the joy before him set,

And mov'd by pitying love,
Endur'd the cross, despis’d the shame,

And now he reigns above.
5 Thither, forgetting things behind,

Press we, to God's right hand !
There, with the Saviour and his saints

Triumphantly to stand.
