To shun what flesh desires; what fiesh abhors, to seek.
Within us, Babe divine,
Thy love and power to heal:
STRENGTH FROM THE CROSS.
H, who shall sing the joyful song at last ?
bors, to seek.
'Tis by the cross the saints their victories win,

REPENTANCE AT THE CROSS.
ESUS, Lamb of God, for me,
Thou, the Lord of life, didst die;
Can a trembling sinner fly?
Never bowed a martyred head,
Weighed with equal sorrow down!
Never king wore such a crown!
dross, r Son; c'un, the cross.
By Thy mighty grace renewed,
New-born hope forbids despair; Lord, Thou canst my guilt forgive, Thou hast bid me look and live.
While with broken heart I kneel,
Sinks the inward storm to rest; Life - immortal life I feel
Kindled in my throbbing breast; Thine-forever Thine - I am, Glory to the bleeding Lamb!
RAY PALMER, D. D.
PLEADING FOR ME.
THOU, the contrite sinner's Friend,
That Thou wilt plead for me.
When, weary in the Christian race,
Then, Saviour, pleal for me!
When I have erred and gone astray,
Still, Saviour, plead for me!
When Satan, by my sins made bold,
And plead, oh, plead for me!
And when my dying hour draws near,
Pleading in heaven for me!
When the full light of heavenly day
Oh, say Thou plead'st for me!
THY BODY AND BLOOD.
HEPHERD of souls, refresh and bless
Thy chosen pilgrim flock, With manna from the wilderness,
With water from the rock.
Hungry and thirsty, faint and weak,
(As Thou when here below,) Our souls the joys celestial seek,
That from Thy sorrows flow.
We would not live by bread alone,
But by Thy word of grace,
To our abiding-place.
Be known to us in breaking bread,
But do not then depart.-
Thy table in our heart!
Then sup with us in love divine;
Thy body and Thy blood -
Be our immortal food!
