D.C.—By thy sor - er griefs to cheer me, By thy more than mor - tal pain.
Suff-'ring Son of man.be near me, In my stiff- 'rings to sus tain;
In Deep Affliction. 8s & 7s.
Full of trembling expectation.
Feeling much, and fearing more,
Mighty 1 iod of my salvation,
I thy timely aid implore.
Suffering Son of man, be near me,
In my sufferings to sustain ;
Bv thy sorer griefs to cheer me,
L»y thy more than mortal pain.
By thy most severe temptation
In that dark Satanic hour,
by thy last mysterious passion,
Screen me from the adverse power.
By thy fainting in the garden,
by thy flreadful death, I pray,
Write upon my heart the pardon ;
Take my sins and fears away.

t! dispel our sadness,
Pierce the clouds of sinful night;
.Come, tbo.u source of joy and gladnes
Breathe thy life, and spread thy light!
Come, thou best of all donations
God doth give when men implore,
Having thy sweet consolations
We need wish for nothing more.
Author of the new creation !
Let us now thine influence prove;
Make our hearts thv habitation,
Shed abroad a Saviour's love
From that height that knows no measure
As a gracious rain descend,
Bringing down the richest treasure
\\ e can ask or God can send.
Manifest thy love forever,
fence us in on every side;
In distress be our Reliever,
Guard ami teach, support and guide.
Hear, oh hear our supplication,
Blessed Spirit! God of peace !
Rest up in this congregation
With the fullness of thy grace.
