We cannot feel a good desire,
Till thou, who call'dst a world from nought,

My beauty are, my glorious dress;
Midst flaming worlds in these arrayed,
With joy shall I lift up my head.
2 Bold shall I stand in thy great day,
For who aught to my charge shall lay?
Fully absolved through these I am,
From sin and fear, from guilt and shame,

Be thou alone my constant flame.

May dwell, but thy pure love alone;
O may thy love possess me whole,
My joy, my treasure, ...read
JESU, thy wandering sheep behold!
L.M. Matthew ix. 36.
1 JESU, thy wandering sheep behold!
See, Lord, with tenderest pity see
The sheep that cannot find the fold,
Till sought and gathered in by thee.

In pain, and weariness, and want;
With no kind shepherd near to guide
The sick, and spiritless, and faint.
3 Thou, only thou, th ...read
JESU, to thee our hearts we lift,

And wait for all our inward heaven.

Thy feeble, tempted followers here!
We have through fire and water gone ...read

And everlasting love.

Or selfishness we meet;
From nature's paths we turn aside,
And worldly thoug ...read
JESU, whose glory's streaming rays,
1 JESU, whose glory's streaming rays,
Though duteous to thy high command,
Not seraphs view with open face,
But veiled before thy presence stand;
2 How shall weak eyes of flesh, weighed down
With sin, and dim with error's night,
Dare to behold thy awful throne,
Or view thy unapproached light?

The gift unspeakable!
And wait with arms of faith to embrace,
And all thy love to feel.

The perfect bliss to prove;

Life, and health, and rest, and food,
All the plenitude of God.

Me in verdant pastures feeds;
Makes me quietly lie down,
By the streams of comfort leads:
Following him whe ...read
JESUS! the name high over
1 JESUS! the name high over
In hell, or earth, or sky,
Angels and men before it fall,
And devils fear and fly.

The name to sinners given;
It scatters all their guilty fear,
It turns their hell to heaven.

And bruises Satan's head;

And part exulting in thy name.

But still in spirit joined,
To embrace the happy toil
Thou hast to each assigned;
And while we do thy blessed will,
We bear ou ...read

Take my body, spirit, soul;
Only thou possess the whole.

Let me ever cleave to thee;
Let me choose the better part;
Let me give thee all my heart.
3 Fairer than the sons of men,
Do not let me turn again,
Leave the fountain-head of bliss,
JESUS, faithful to his word,
7s & 6s.
1 JESUS, faithful to his word,
Shall with a shout descend;
All heaven's host their glorious Lord
Shall pompously attend:
Christ shall come with dreadful noise,
Lightnings swift, and thunders loud;
With the great archangel's voice,
And with the trump of God.
2 First the dead in Christ shall rise;
Then we that yet remain
JESUS, from thy heavenly place,
7s & 6s. Isaiah xxxiii, 5,6.

Thy dwelling in the sky,
Fill our church with righteousness,
Our want of faith supply;

And godliness, with all its power,
Stablish our posterity,
Till time shall be no more.

Our re-converted land:

And thee their utmost Saviour own,
Unite, and perfect them in one.

Me, the worst of rebels, me;

So shall the fervour of my zeal
Be the pure flame of love.
JESUS, Jehovah, God,

Thou art gone up on high,
Amidst the angelic multitude,
Thy chariots through the sky;
In majesty supreme,
Absolute God confessed,
Captive thyself hast taken them
Who all mankind oppressed.

Our enemies and thine,
And, more than conqueror, displayed
The omnipotenc ...read
