HYMN 21. Second Part. L.M.
Election sovereign and free. (cont.)

  6 Shall man reply against the Lord,
And call his Maker's ways unjust;
The thunder of whose dreadful word
Can crush a thousand worlds to dust?
  7 But, O! my soul, if truth so bright
Should dazzle and confound thy sight;
Yet still his written will obey,
And wait the great decisive day.
  8 Then shall he make his justice known:
And the whole world, before his throne
With joy, or terror, shall confess
The glory of his righteousness.

HYMN 21. Third Part. S.M.
Communion of Saints.

  1 BLEST be the tie that binds
   Our hearts in Christian love:
The fellowship of kindred minds
   Is like to that above.
  2 Before our Father's throne
   We pour our ardent prayers;
Our fears, our hopes, our aims are one,
   Our comforts and our cares.
  3 We share our mutual woes;
   Our mutual burdens bear;
And often for each other flows
   The sympathising tear.
  4 We're one in Christ our head,
   In him we grow, and thrive;
Nor will he leave us with the dead,
   While he remains alive.
  5 This glorious hope revives
   Our courage by the way;
While each in expectation lives,
   And longs to see the day.

HYMN 21. Third Part. S.M.
Communion of Saints. (cont.)

  6 From sorrow, toil, and pain,
   And sin, we shall be free;
And perfect love and friendship reign
   Thro' all eternity.

HYMN 21. Fourth Part. S.M.
Christian love.

  1 LET party-names no more
   The Christian world o'erspread;
Gentile and Jew, and bond and free,
   Are one in Christ their head.
  2 Among the saints on earth
   Let mutual love be found;
Heirs of the same inheritance,
   With mutual blessings crown'd.
  3 Let envy, child of hell!
   Be banish'd far away;
Those should in strictest friendship dwell,
   Who the same Lord obey.
  4 Thus will the church below
   Resemble that above,
Where streams of pleasure ever flow,
   And ev'ry heart is love.

HYMN 21. Fifth Part. L.M.
Forgiveness of sins.

  1 FORGIVENESS! 'tis a joyful sound,
To sinners doom'd to death and pains;
The blood of Christ heals ev'ry wound,
And washes from the foulest stains.
  2 'Tis the rich gift of love divine:
'Tis full, out-meas'ring ev'ry crime;
Unclouded shall its glories shine,
And feel no change by changing time.
  3 O'er sins unbounded as the sand,
And like the mountains for their size,
