7 LORD, we expect to suffer here,
Nor would we dare repine;
But give us still to find thee near,
And own us still for thine.

8 May we enjoy, and highly prize
These tokens of thy love:
Till thou shalt bid our spirits rise,
Do To worship thee above.

452. Unfruitfulness under the means of Grace lamented. C.M.

iwon

LONG have I sat beneath the sound
Of thy salvation, LORD;

But still how weak my faith is found,
And knowledge of thy word!

2 Oft I frequent thy holy place,
And hear almost in vain:
How small a portion of thy grace
Does my false heart retain!

3 How cold and feeble is my love!
How negligent my fear!
How low my hopes of joys above!
How few affections there!

4 Great GOD! thy sov'reign pow'r impart,
To give thy word success;
Write thy salvation on my heart,
And make me learn thy grace.

There knowledge grows without decay,
And love shall never die.onl

JESUS said unto them, I am the bread of life; he that cometh me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.-JOHN vi. 35.

GLORY to GOD, who gave the word,
And bid the preachers cry;

Who caus'd his will to be proclaim'd,
And brought salvation nigh.

2 LORD, ever give us of that bread,
He deals
And grant us ears to hear,
Hearts to receive the heav'nly seed,
And bring forth fruit with fear
30 may thy word direct our path,
And guide our fault'ring feet,
feet, 192 &
Direct us in the living way,

And to thy mercy seat!

Of bliss, and truth, and good,
Give us (that we may never thirst),
To drink of JESU's blood!

5 [Fill every hungry soul with grace,
From thine exhaustless store;
And let no one go empty hence,
But taste and pray for more.]

I will not let thee go, except thou bless me.-GENESIS xxxii. 26.

LORD, we come before thee now,
At thy feet we humbly bow;
O! do not our suit disdain;
Shall we seek thy face in vain?

2 In thine own appointed way,
Now we seek thee, here we stay;
And from hence we would not go,
Till a blessing thou bestow.

3 Send some message from thy word,
That may joy and peace afford;
Let thy Spirit now impart
Full salvation to each heart.

Thee a GoD supremely kind;
Heal the sick, the captive free,
Let us all rejoice in thee.
