2 Grace first contrived a way
To save rebellious man ;
Which drew the wondrous plan. 3 Grace taught my wandering feet
To tread the heavenly road ;
While pressing on to God.
Through everlasting days;
And well deserves the praise.
DODDRIDGE, Salvation by Christ. 1 AND is salvation brought so near,
Where sinful men expiring lie? Triumph, my soul, the sound to hear,
And shout it joyous to the sky. 2 I ask not, who to heaven shall scale,
That Christ, the Savior, thence may come; Or who earth's inmost depths assail,
To bring him from the dreary tomb. 3 From heaven, on wings of love, he flew,
And conqueror from the tomb he sprung; My heart believes the witness true,
And dictates to my faithful tongue. 4 I sing salvation brought so near,
No more on earth expiring lie;
Watts. Saloation by Christ. Ps. 85. 1 SALVATION is forever nigh
The souls that fear and trust the Lord; And grace, descending from on high,
Fresh hopes of glory shall afford. 2 Now truth and honor shall abound,
Religion dwell on earth again, And heavenly influence bless the ground,
In our Redeemer's gentle reign. 3 His righteousness is gone before,
To give us free access to God;
But mark his steps, and keep the road.
Thy titles spread abroad,
Thy church's Head,
Thine honors spread
2 Ten thousand gifts of love
From thee through him descend,
To joys that never end :
To heaven they soar,
Sustained by God,
And through the road
3 Ten thousand songs of praise
Shall by the Savior rise,
And loud proclaim
The honored name
ENFIELD. Example of Christ. 1 BEHOLD, where in a mortal form
Appears each grace divine !
With mildest radiance shine.
2 To spread the rays of heavenly light,
To give the mourner joy,
Was his divine employ.
Patient and meek he stood;
He labored for their good.
Before his Father's throne, With soul resigned, he bowed, and said,
Thy will, not mine, be done ! ”
5 Be Christ our Pattern and our Guide!
His image may we bear !
His joy and glory share !
MRS. STEELE. The Example of Christ. 1 AND is the gospel peace and love?
Such let our conversation be
Wisdom and meek simplicity. 2 Whene'er the angry passions rise,
And tempt our thoughts or tongues to strife, To Jesus let us lift our eyes,
Bright Pattern of the Christian life. 3 0, how benevolent and kind!
How mild! how ready to forgive ! Be this the temper of our mind,
And these the rules by which we live. 4 To do his heavenly Father's will
Was his employment and delight; Humility and holy zeal
Shone through his life, divinely bright. 5 Dispensing good where'er he came,
The labors of his life were love; O, if we love the Savior's name,
Let his divine example move.
WATTS. The Example of Christ. 1 MY dear Redeemer and my Lord,
I read my duty in thy word ;
Drawn out in living characters.
Such deference to thy Father's will,
3 Cold mountains and the midnight air
Witnessed the fervor of thy prayer;
Thy conflict and thy victory too.
More of thy gracious image here ;
DODDRIDGE. The Christian Warrior animated and crowned. 1 HARK! 'tis our heavenly Leader's voice,
From his triumphant seat; 'Midst all the war's tumultuous noise,
How powerful and how sweet! 2 "Fight on, my faithful band," he cries,
Nor fear the mortal blow v; Who first in such a warfare dies
Shall speediest victory know.
