HYMN 11. First Part. C.M.
Jesus. (cont.)

  3 Firm, as his throne, his promise stands,
   And he can well secure
What I've committed to his hands,
   Till the decisive hour.
  4 Then will he own my worthless name
   Before his Father's face;
And in the new Jerusalem
   Appoint my soul a place.

HYMN 11. Second Part. C.M.
The name of Jesus.

  1 HOW sweet the name of Jesus sounds,
   In a believer's ear!
It sooths his sorrows, heals his wounds,
   And drives away his fear.
  2 It makes the wounded spirit whole,
   And calms the troubled breast;
'Tis manna to the hungry soul,
   And to the weary rest.
  3 Dear name! the rock on which I build,
   My shield and hiding place;
My never failing treas'ry, fill'd
   With boundless stores of grace.
  4 Jesus! my Shepherd, Husband, Friend,
   My Prophet, Priest, and King;
My Lord, my Life, my Way, my End;
   Accept the praise I bring.
  5 Weak is the effort of my heart,
And cold my warmest thought;
   But when 1 see thee as thou art,
   I'll praise thee as I ought.
  6 Till then, I would thy love proclaim
   With ev'ry fleeting breath;
And may the music of thy name
   Refresh may soul in death.

HYMN 11. Third Part. C.M.
Jesus, the gift of God.

  1 JESUS, my love, my chief delight,
For thee I long, for thee I pray;
Amid the shadows of the night,
Amid the bus'ness of the day.
  2 When shall I see thy smiling face,
Which I, thro' faith, have often seen?
Arise, thou Sun of Righteousness,
Dispel the clouds that intervene.
  3 Thou art the glorious gift of God,
To sinners weary and distrest;
The first of all his gifts bestow'd,
And certain pledge of all the rest.
  4 Now I can say this gift is mine,
I'll tread the world beneath my feet;
No more at pain or want repine,
Nor envy the rich sinner's state.
  5 This precious jewel let me keep,
And lodge it deep within my heart;
At home, abroad, awake, asleep,
It never shall from thence depart.

HYMN 11. Fourth Part. L.M.
Jesus the only Saviour.

  1 JESUS, the spring of joys divine,
Whence all our hopes and comforts flow:
Jesus, no other name, but thine,
Can save us from eternal woe.
  2 In vain would boasting reason find
The way to happiness and God;
Her weak directions leave the mind
Bewilder'd in a dubious road.
  3 No other name will heav'n approve;
Thou art the true, the living way,
