3. Ye, who have sold for nought,
The year of Jubilee, &c..

And blest in Jesus live:

The news of pard'ning grace:
Ye happy souls draw near,
VII. THE CHRISTIAN'S CHARACTER AND
Hymn 204. P. M.
Why will ye die? O house of Israel! Ezek. xviii: 31 SINNERS, turn, why will ye die?
God, your Maker, asks you why:
God who did your being give,
2. Sinners, turn, why will ye die?
Why, ye ransom'd sinners, why
3. Sinners, turn, why will ye die?
4. Dead, already dead within,
Dead to God while here you breathe,
O, ye dying sinners, why,
Hymn 205. c. M.
1. L For you, Christ suffer'd pain
OVERS of pleasure more than God,
Swearers, for you he spilt his blood;
2. Misers, his life for you he paid,
3. The God of love, to earth he came,
Believe, believe, on Jesu's name,
4. Believe in him who dy'd for thee:
Thy debt is paid, thy soul is free,.
Hymn 206. c. M.
Conviction of sin by the law, Rom. vii. 8, 9, 14, 24
LORD, how secure my conscience was,
And felt no inward dread!
I was alive without the law,
And thought my sins were dead.
2. My hopes of heav'n were firm and bright,
With a convincing pow'r and light,
3. My guilt appear'd but small before,
How perfect, holy, just and pure,.
4. Then felt my soul the heavy load,
I cannot do the good I would,
6. My God, I cry with ev'ry breath
Hymn 207. c. M.
ISTAKEN souls! that dream of heav'n, And make their empty boast Of inward joys, and sins forgiv'n, While they are slaves to lust. 2. Vain are our fancies, airy flights, If faith be cold and dead. None but a living pow'r unites To Christ the living head. 3. 'Tis faith that changes all the heart; "Tis faith that works by love; That bids all sinful joys depart, And lifts the thoughts above.
4. 'Tis faith that conquers earth and hell By a celestial pow'r ;
This is the grace that shall prevail
Hymn 208. c. M.
AN has a soul of vast desires,
He burns within with restless fires ;
2. In vain on earth we hope to find
3. So when a raging fever burns,
To change the place, but keep the pain. 4. Great God! subdue this vicious thirst, This love to vanity and dust ;
Cure the vile fever of the mind,
Hymn 209. L: M.
The humble enlightened, and carnal reason humbled;
Luke x. 21, 22.
HERE was an hour when Christ rejoic'd, And spoke his joy in words of praise : "Father, I thank thee, mighty God,
"Lord of the earth, and heav'ns and seas. 2. "I thank thy sov'reign pow'r and love, "That crowns my doctrine with success: "And makes the babes in knowledge learn "The height, and breadth and length of grace. 3. "But all this glory lies conceal'd,
"From men of prudence and of wit; "The prince of darkness blinds their eyes, "And their own pride resists the light. 4. "Father 'tis thus, because thy will "Chose and ordain'd it should be so; "'Tis thy delight t' abase the proud, "And lay the haughty scorner low.
Hymn 210. c. M.
HATE the tempter and his charms,
The serpent takes a thousand forms,
2. He feeds our hopes with airy dreams,
And holds us still in wide extremes,
3. Now he persuades: "How easy
4. He bids young sinners " yet forbear
