HYMN 19. Fifth Part. P.M.
Lo, he cometh. (cont.)

  3 Full of joyful expectation,
   Saints, behold the Judge appear!
Truth and justice go before him,
   Now the joyful sentence hear:
Welcome, welcome, Judge divine.
  4 "Come, ye blessed of my father,
   "Enter into life and joy;
"Banish all your fears and sorrows,
   "Endless praise be your employ:"
Welcome, welcome to the skies.
  5 Now at once they rise to glory,
   Jesus brings them as their king;
There, with all the hosts of heav'n,
   They eternal anthems sing;
Boundless glory to the Lamb.

HYMN 20. First Part. L.M.
God the Holy Ghost.

  1 ETERNAL Spirit! we confess
And sing the wonders of thy grace;
Thy pow'r conveys our blessings down
From God the Father and the Son.
  2 Enlighten'd by thine heav'nly ray,
Our shades and darkness turn to day;
We learn the meaning of thy word,
And find salvation in the Lord.
  3 Thy pow'r and glory work within,
And break the chains of reigning sin,
Our wild imperious lusts subdue,
And form our wretched hearts anew.
  4 The troubled conscience know thy voice,
Thy cheering words awake our joys;

HYMN 20. First Part. L.M.
God the Holy Ghost. (cont.)

  4 Thy words allay the stormy wind,
And calm the surges of the mind.

HYMN 20. Second Part. L.M.
The influence of the Holy Spirit experienced.

  1 DEAR Lord, and shall thy Spirit rest
In such a wretched heart as mine?
Unworthy dwelling! glorious Guest!
Favour astonishing, divine!
  2 When sin prevails, and gloomy fear,
And hope almost expires in night,
Lord, can thy Spirit then be here,
Great spring of comfort, life and light?
  3 Sure the blest Comforter is nigh;
'Tis he sustains my fainting heart;
Else would my hopes for ever die,
And ev'ry cheering ray depart.
  4 When some kind promise glads my soul,
Do I not find his healing voice
The tempest of my fears control,
And bid my drooping pow'rs rejoice?
  5 Whene'er to call the Saviour mine,
With ardent wish my heart aspires;
Can it be less than pow'r divine,
Which animates these strong desires?
  6 What less than thine almighty word
Can raise my heart from earth and dust;
And bid me cleave to thee, my Lord,
My life, my treasure, and my trust?
  7 And when my cheerful hope can say,
"I love my God, and taste his grace;"
Lord, is it not thy blissful ray,
Which brings this dawn of sacred peace?
  8 Let thy kind Spirit in my heart,
For ever dwell, O God of love;
