2 Bound hand and foot with chains of sin,

Death dragg’d me for his prey;
The pit was mov'd to take me in;

All hope was far away. 3 I cried, in agony of mind,

Lord, I beseech thee, save:”.
He heard me;-Death his prey resign'd,

And mercy shut the grave.
4 Return, my soul, unto thy rest,

From God no longer roam;
His hand hath bountifully blest,

His goodness callid thee home. 5 What shall I render unto thee,

My Saviour, in distress,
For all thy benefits to me,

So great and numberless?
6 This will I do, for thy love's sake,

And thus thy power proclaim;
The sacramental cup I'll take,

And call upon thy name. 7 Thou covenanted God of

grace,
Hear and record my vow,
While in thy courts I seek thy face,

And at thine altar bow:-
8 Henceforth to thee myself I give;

With single heart and eye,
To walk before thee while I live,

And bless thee when I die.

497. C.M.-" This do in remembrance of me.” Luke xxii. 19. 1 ACCORDING to thy gracious word,

In meek humility,
This will I do my dying Lord,

I will remember Thee.

my sake,

2 Thy body broken for

My bread from heaven shall be;
Thy testamental cup I take,

And thus remember Thee. 3 Gethsemane can I forget?

Or there thy conflict see,
Thine agony and bloody sweat,

And not remember Thee?
4 When to the cross I turn mine eyes,

And rest on Calvary,
O Lamb of God, my sacrifice!

I must remember Thee:-
5 Remember thee, and all thy pains,

And all thy love to me;
Yea, while a breath, a pulse remains,

Will I remember Thee. 6 And when these failing lips grow dumb,

And mind and memory flee,
When Thou shalt in thy kingdom come,

Jesus, remember me.

C.M.-Jesus hasting to suffer.
1 THE Saviour! what a noble flame

Was kindled in his breast';
When hasting to Jerusalem

He march'd before the rest!
2 Good-will to men, and zeal to God,

His every thought engross;
He longs to be baptiz'd with blood,

He pants to reach the cross.
3 With all his sufferings full in view,

And woes to us unknown,
Forth to the task his spirit flew;

'Twas love that urg'd him on.

4 Lord, we return thee what we can!

Our hearts shall sound abroad, Salvation to the dying Man,

And to the rising God!
5 And while thy bleeding glories here

Engage our wondering eyes,
We learn our lighter cross to bear,
And hasten to the skies.

499. C.M.- Nearness to God through Christ. Eph. ii. 13. 1 AND are we now brought near to God,

Who once at distance stood ? And, to effect this glorious change,

Did Jesus shed his blood?
2 O for a song of ardent praise,

To bear our souls above!
What should allay our lively hope,

Or damp our flaming love! 3 Draw us, O Lord, with quickening grace,

And bring us yet more near;
Here may we see thy glories shine,

And taste thy mercies here. 4 O may that love which spread thy board,

Dispose us for the feast;
May faith behold a smiling God,

Through Jesus' bleeding breast. 5 Fir'd with the view, our souls shall rise,

In such a scene as this,
And view the happy moment near,
That shall complete our bliss.

500.
L.M. - Regard to the Lord's Supper urged.
1 MY God, and is thy table spread?

And does thy cup with love o'erflow? Thither be all thy children led,

And let them all its sweetness know.

2 Hail sacred feast, which Jesus makes!

Rich banquet of his flesh and blood! Thrice happy he, who here partakes

That sacred stream, that heavenly food! 3 Why are its dainties all in vain

Before unwilling hearts display'd?
Was not for you the victim slain?
Are
you

forbid the children's bread? 4 O let thy table honour'd be,

And furnish'd well with joyful guests; And may each soul salvation see,

That here its sacred pledges tastes. 5 Let crowds approach with hearts prepar’d;

With hearts inflam'd let all attend; Nor, when we leave our Father's board,

The pleasure, or the profit end. 6 Revive thy dying churches, Lord,

And bid our drooping graces live; And more that energy afford,

A Saviour's blood alone can give.

501.
P.M.—“ Having an High Priest over the House of God."

Heb. x.

21.

1 THE' atoning work is done,

The victim's blood is shed;
And Jesus now is gone,

His people's cause to plead.
He stands in heaven their great High Priest,

And bears their names upon his breast. . 2 He sprinkles with his blood

The mercy seat above;
For justice had withstood

The purposes of love.
But justice now objects no more,
And mercy yields her boundless store.

3 No temple made with hands

His place of service is;
In heaven itself he stands,

An heavenly priesthood his:
In him the shadows of the law

Are all fulfill'd, and now withdraw. 4 And though awhile he be Hid from the

eyes

of

men, His people look to see

Their great High Priest again: In brightest glory he will come, And take his waiting people home.

P.M.-Christian Fellowship. 1 JESUS is our common Lord,

He our loving Saviour is;
By his death to life restor’d,

Misery we exchange for bliss.
Bliss to carnal minds unknown:

O’tis more than tongue can tell!
Only to believers shewn:

Glorious and unspeakable. 2 Christ our Brother and our Friend,

Shews us his eternal love:
Never shall our triumphs end,

Till we take our seats above.
Let us walk with him in white,

For our bridal day prepare;
For our partnership in light,

For our glorious meeting there.

503.

P.M.- The Pilgrim's Song. 1 CHILDREN of the heavenly King! As ye journey, sweetly sing: Sing your Saviour's worthy praise, Glorious in his works and ways.
