HYMN 4. Third Part. L.M.
The justice of God. (cont.)

  7 With grateful songs, then let our souls
Surround our gracious Father's throne;
And ail between the distant poles
His truth and mercy ever own.

HYMN 5. First Part. L.M.
A Saviour is necessary.

  1 ENSLAV'D by sin, and bound in chains
   Beneath its dreadful tyrant sway,
And doom'd to everlasting pains,
   We wretched guilty captives lay.
  2 Nor can our arm procure our peace;
   Nor will the world's collected store
Suffice to purchase our release:
   A thousand worlds were all too poor.
  3 A Saviour, man, and mighty God,
   A glorious ransom must procure;
Justice divine demands his blood;
   And nothing less can life insure.
  4 Jesus the man, the mighty God,
   This all-sufficient ransom paid:
The Mediator's precious blood
   For wretched sinners has been shed.
  5 Jesus the sacrifice became,
   To rescue guilty souls from hell;
The spotless, bleeding, dying Lamb
   Beneath avenging justice fell.
  6 Amazing justice! love divine!
   O may our grateful hearts adore
The matchless grace; nor yield to sin,
   Nor wear its cruel fetters more!

HYMN 5. Second Part. C.M.

  1 THE Saviour! O what endless charms
   Dwell in the blissful sound!

HYMN 5. Second Part. C.M.
Saviour. (cont.)

  1 Its influ'nce ev'ry fear disarms,
   And spreads sweet comfort round.
  2 Here pardon, life, and joys divine,
   In rich effusion flow,
For guilty rebels lost in sin,
   And doom'd to endless woe.
  3 Th' almighty former of the skies
   Stoop'd to our vile abode!
While angels view'd, with wond'ring eyes,
   And hail'd th' incarnate God.
  4 O the rich depths of love divine,
   Of bliss a boundless store!
Dear Saviour, let me call thee mine;
   I cannot wish for more.
  5 On thee alone my hope relies,
   Beneath thy cross I fall;
My Lord, my life, my sacrifice,
   My Saviour, and my all.

HYMN 5. Third Part. C.M.

  1 SALVATION! O melodious sound
   To wretched dying men!
Salvation, that from God proceeds,
   And leads to God again.
  2 Rescued from hell's eternal gloom,
   From fiends, and fires, and chains:
Rais'd to a paradise of bliss,
   Where love triumphant reigns!
  3 But may a poor bewilder'd soul,
   Sinful and weak as mine,
Presume to raise a trembling eye
   To blessings so divine?
  4 The lustre of so bright a bliss,
   My feeble heart o'erbears;
