2-6s & 4-7s. Luke xv 20 - 24.
1 THEE, O my God and King,
My Father, thee I sing!
Hear, well-pleased, the joyous sound,

How God himself is found.
3 Two worlds are ours; 'tis only sin
Forbids us to descry

Drawn from Immanuel's veins;

Wash all my sins away.

Shall never lose its power,

By water and by blood!
Jesus is our atoning Lamb,
Our sanctifying God.

Shall wash us white as snow.

Before the blood we feel,
To purge the guilt of all our sins,
And our f ...read

And trust him for all that's to come. ...read
THOU art gone up on high

Our Saviour in the sky,
Principalities and powers
Thou hast spoiled, and captive led,
Conquered all thy foes and ours,

Gifts for a rebellious race
Streaming from thy throne above,
Contrite grief, and pardonin ...read

By thy forgiving love.

'Twixt two unbounded seas I stand,
A point of time, a moment's space,
Removes me to that heavenly ...read

And why together brought
To see each other's face?
To join with softest sympathy,
And mix our ...read

Of gospel hope, of humble fear,
To guide me through the gulf of night,

THOU hidden God, for whom I groan,
1 THOU hidden God, for whom I groan,
Till thou thyself declare,
God inaccessible, unknown,
Regard a sinner's prayer!

As far as hell from heaven.

Pity thy fallen creature's pain,
THOU hidden love of God, whose height,

The sweetness of thy yoke to prove;
And fain I would; but though my will
Seems fi ...read
