His blood is all sufficient found

u. To draw the shaft, and heal the wound. 10 What arrows pierce so deep as sin ?

What venom gives such pain within ?
Thou great. Physician of the soul,
Rebuke my pangs, and make me whole.
11 O! if I trust thy soy'reign skill,

And bow submissive to thy will,
Sickness and death shall both agree
To bring me, Lord, at last to thee.

HYMN XXIII.
On Recovery from Sickness."

HEN we are rais'd from deep distress,
WHE

our God deserves our fong; We take the pattern of our praise

from Hezekiah's* tongue. 1 2 The gates of the devouring grave

are open'd wide in vain,
If he that holds the keys of death

command them fast again.
When he but speaks the healing word,
20 then no disease withstands;

Fevers and plagues obey the Lord,
#1 : and fly, as he commands.
4. If half the strings of life should break,

he can our frame restore,
And cast our fins behind his back,

and they are found no more.
5 To him I cry'd" Thy servant save,

“thou ever good and just;
“ Thy pow'r can rescue from the grave;

" thy pow'r is all my trust!"
6 He heard, and sav'd my soul from death,

and dry'd my falling tears;
Now to his praise I'll spend my breath,
through my remaining years.

HYMN XXIV.

On the fame.
Y God, since thou haft rais'd me up,

thee I'Hextol with thankful voice;
Restor'd by thine Almighty pow'r,
with fear before thee I'll rejoice.

* Isaiah xxxix. 9, &.

2 With troubles worn, with pain oppress'd,

to thee I cry'd, and thou didst lave'; Thou didst support my finking hopes,

my life did'It rescue from the grave. 3 Wherefore, ye Saints ! rejoice with me,

with me ling praises to the Lord; Call all bis goodness to your mind,

and all his faithfulnefs record. 4 His

anger is but Mort; his love which is our life, hath certain stay; Grief may continue for a night,

but joy returns with rising day ! 5 Then what I vow'd in my distress,

in happier hours I now will give, And strive, that in my grateful verse

his praises may forever live. 6 To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,

the bleft and undivided Three, The one fole Giver of all life,

glory and praise for ever be.

HYMN XXV.
FUNERAL CONSOLATIONS.
EAR what thevoice from heav'n declares

to those in Christ who die!
" Releas'd from all their earthly cares,

“they reign with him on high.” 2 Then, why lament departed friends,

or shake at death's alarms? Death's but the servant Jesus sends

to call us to his arms. 3 If sin be pardon'd we're secure,

death hath no fting beside ; The law gave sin its strength and pow'r;

but. Chrift, our ransom, died ! 4 The graves of all his faints he bless'a,

when in the grave he lay; And rising thence, their hopes he rais'd

to everlasting day! Then joyfully, while life we have,

to Christ, our life, we'll fing“ Where is thy victory, O grave ?

“ and where, O death, thy sting?"

HYMN XXVI.
CHRIST's Commission to preach the GOSPEL.

St, Matth. Chap. x.
O , ye

I

Gofweetly the Gospel trumpet found ;

The glorious Jubilee proclaim,

where'er the human race is found. 2 The joyful news to all impart,

and teach them where salvation lies; With care bind up the broken heart,

and wipe the tears from weeping eyes. 3 Be wise as serpents where you go,

but harmless as the peaceful dove, And let your heav'n taught conduct show

that ye're commission'd from above. 4 Freely from me ye have receiv’d,

freely, in love, to others give;
Thus thail your doctrines be believ'd,
and, by your labours, finners live.

HYMN XXVII.
The fame COMMISSION, from St. Mark, xvi.15,&c

and from St. Matth. xxviii. 18, &c.
O preach my Gospel, faith the Lord,

“bid the whole earth my grace receive;
Explain to them my sacred Word,

“ bid them believe, obey, and live! 2. “I'll make my great commiffion known,

“ and ye shall prove my Gospel true, “By all the works that I have done,

“and all the wonders ye shall do. 3 “Go heal the sick, go raise the dead,

“go cast out devils in my Name; “ Nor let my Prophets be afraid,

“though Greeks reproach, and Jews blaspheme. 4 “While thus ye follow my commands,

“ I'm with you till the world shall end; “ All pow'r is trusted in my hands;

I can destroy, and can defend.” 5 He spake, and light shone round his head;

on a bright cloud to heav'n he rode! They to the farthest nations spread

the grace of their ascended God. :
