4. As in soft silence vernal showers Descend and cheer the fainting flowers, So in the secrecy of love
Falls the sweet influence from above.
5. That heavenly influence let me find
6. Nor let these blessings be confin'd
Hymn 109. P. M.
OME, then, dear Lord, thyself reveal, And let the promise now take place, Be it according to thy will,
According to thy word of grace,
And oft relieves our sad complaint,
But soon we droop again, and faint,
Hymn 110. P. M.
RM of the Lord, awake, awake,
Out of their sins the nations shake,
The sudden soul condemning power.
Wither the grass, and blast the flower, That, when their works are all o'erthrown, The word of grace may stand alone. 3. Naked, and destitute, and blind
Themselves let the poor wretches see, Their total fall lament, and find
That every mouth is støpt by thee. Thus all the world with conscious fear Guilty before their God appear.
4. Guilty because they know not him,
Who liv'd and dy'd their souls to savę, Who came his people to redeem: No part or lot in Christ they have, Till thou the painful veil remove, And shew their hearts his dying love.
Hymn 111. P. M.
PIRIT of faith, on thee we call,
To every heart of man reveal.
Forgiveness thro' his blood to feel.
3. Is he not to his Father gone,
That we his righteousness might share? And art thou not on earth sent down, The fruit of his prevailing prayer, The witness of his grace, and seal, The heavenly gift unspeakable! 4. O might we each receive the grace By thee to call the Saviour mine! Come, Holy Ghost, to all our race, Bring in the righteousness divine, Inspire the sense of sin forgiv'n, And give on earth a taste of heaven.
Hymn 112. P. M.
I. ESUS, God of peace and love,
Take, and seal us for thine own,
2. By the sense of sin forgiven
Purge out all the former leaven,
3. Root up every bitter root,
Love, and joy, and quiet peace, Meek long-suffering, gentleness. 4. Strict and general temperance, Boundless, pure benevolence, Cordial firm fidelity;
All the mind which was in thee.
Hymn 113. P. M.
'Thy of grand Wices proclaim, grace, we bless thy name,
Thy fruits, and properties and powers:
Thou dost with kind and tender care The Godless heart of man prepare, That God may yet again be ours.. 2. Thou didst thy fallen creature see, Fallen from happiness and thee,
And swiftly to our rescue come, Well pleas'd amongst the sons of men To fix thy residence again,
And make them thy eternal home. 3. Thou dost the first good thoughts inspire, The first faint spark of pure desire
Is kindled by thy gracious breath. By thee made conscious of his fall, The sinner hears thy sudden call,
And starts out of the sleep of death. 4. Convinc'd of sin and unbelief, He sinks o'erwhelm'd with sacred grief, And pines disconsolate for God,
Till thou the healing balm apply,
In Jesu's name, and Jesu's blood..
Hymn 114. L. M.
The influences of the Spirit experienced,
EAR Lord, and shall thy spirit rest In such a wretched heart as mine? Unworthy dwelling! glorious guest! Favour astonishing, divine!
2. When sin prevails and gloomy fear,
4. When some kind promise glads my soul, Do I not find his healing voice 'The tempest of my fears controul, And bid my drooping powers rejoice? 5. Whene'er to call the Saviour mine, With ardent wish my heart aspires; Can it be less than power divine, Which animates these strong desires? 6. What less than thine almighty word Can raise my heart from earth and dust, And bid me cleave to thee, my Lord, My life, my treasure and my trust. 7. And when my cheerful hope can say, "I love my God, and taste his grace," Lord, is it not thy blissful ray,
Which brings this dawn of sacred peace? 8. Let thy kind spirit in my heart For ever dwell, O God of love, And light and heav'nly peace impart, Sweet earnest of the joys above.
Hymn 115. s. M.
OME, Holy Spirit, come;
2. Cheer our desponding hearts
3. Revive our drooping faith,
Our doubts and fears remove; And kindle in our breasts the flame
Of never-dying love..
4. Convince us of our sin,
Then lead to Jesu's blood;,
