3 Inspired with wisdom from above,
And with discretion bless'd ; Displaying meekness, temperance, love, Of
every grace possess'd. 4 Sound in the faith, sincere, and grave,
And full of good report : Not such as filthy lucre crave,
Or praise or favour court.
Or men of empty boast;
Of faithful, sober, just.
O God of righteousness ; Such may our deacons ever be, With such thy people bless.
Of Jesus our exalted head;
And we receive thee in his stead.
This fold from hell, and earth, and sin; Nourish the lambs, and feed the sheep,
The wounded heal, the lost bring in. 3 Come as a Watchman; take thy stand
Upon thy tower amidst the sky,
Call us to fight, or warn to fly.
A band of pilgrims on the way,
We fail not, faint not, turn nor stray.
5 Come as a Teacher sent from God,
Charged his whole counsel to declare; Lift o'er our ranks the prophet's rod,
While we uphold thy hands with prayer. 6 Come as a Messenger of peace,
Fill'd with the Spirit, fir'd with love;
Enter in Jesus' precious name,
And trust the Saviour does the same. 2 Those joys which earth cannot afford,
We'll seek in fellowship to prove,
Together bound by mutual love.
We'll make our joys and sorrows known; We'll share each other's hopes and fears,
And count a brother's cares our own. 4 Once more our welcome we repeat;
Receive assurance of our love :
502. S. M.– The attractive influence of a crucified Saviour. John xii. 32. 1 BEHOLD the amazing sight,
The Saviour lifted high!
Expire in agony.
Were all these sorrows borne?
And meet that various scorn ?
3 For love of us he bled,
And all in torture died; 'Twas love that bow'd his fainting head,
And op'd his gushing side. 4 I see and I adore,
In sympathy of love :
To lift my soul above.
Let all the earth combine With cheerful ardour to confess
The energy divine.
Nor share thy griefs alone,
503. P.M.- The Lord's supper. John vi. 1 BREAD of the world, in mercy broken, Wine of the soul in
shed! By whom the words of life were spoken,
And in whose death our sins are dead! 2 Look on the heart by sorrow broken,
Look on the tears by sinners shed,
7.6.- The same. 1 LAMB of God, whose bleeding love
We now recall to mind,
And let us mercy find;
And every struggling soul release;
And bid us go in peace.
2 By thine agonizing pain,
And bloody sweat, we pray;
Take all our sins away:
From all iniquity release :
The sinner's pardon seal :
And all our sickness heal :
Let all our griefs and troubles cease:
Till thou our wants relieve ;
And all thine image give !
Till perfected in holiness :
75.- After the Lord's supper. 1 SONS of God, triumphant rise,
Shout the accomplish'd sacrifice !
Sons of God, and heirs of heaven. 2 Ye that round our altars throng,
Listening angels join the song ;
Pardon, grace, and glory ours !
Greet we now the’ atoning Son;
4 Him by faith we taste below,
Mightier joys ordain'd to know,
506. L M.- For a friendly or benefit society. 1 OUR souls shall magnify the Lord,
In him our spirits shall rejoice : Assembled here, with one accord,
Our hearts shall praise him with our voice. 2 Since He regards our low estate,
And hears his servants when they pray,
away. 3 God of our hope! to Thee we bow,
Thou art our Refuge in distress;
The Father of the fatherless! 4 The poor are thy peculiar care,
To them thy promises are sure;
O may we always thus be poor. 5 May we thy law of love fulfil,
To bear each other's burdens here;
And walk in all thy faith and fear. 6 Didst thou not give thy Son to die,
For our transgressions, in our stead?
To those for whom thy Son hath bled ? 7 Then may our union, here begun,
Endure for ever, firm and free ;
One with each other, and with Thee !
