HYMN 27. Fourth Part. C.M.
Suffer little children to come unto me. (cont.)

  4 Of pouring out the Spirit's grace,
   To form the heart anew.

HYMN 27. Fifth Part. C.M.
Forbid them not.

  1 BEHOLD what condescending love
   Jesus on earth displays;
To babes and sucklings he extends
   The riches of his grace.
  2 "Forbid them not," is his command;
   Then why should men resist?
Our children now may be baptiz'd;
   The church of such consist.
  3 With flowing tears and thankful hearts,
   We bring them, Lord, to thee;
Receive them, Jesus, to thine arms;
   Thine may they ever be.
  4 Thine may they be; forever thine,
   Thy ransom'd purchased seed:
O! let this seal of sprinkling, now,
   Be own'd of thee indeed.
  5 Here, parents, with thanksgiving view
   Your right to what you've done;
Let songs of praises sound aloud
   To the great Three in One.

HYMN 28. First Part. L.M.
The Lord's Supper.

  1 'TWAS on that dark, that doleful night,
   When pow'rs of earth and hell arose
Against the Son of God's delight,
   And friends betrayed him to his foes:
  2 Before the mournful scene began,
   He took the bread, and bless'd, and brake;
What love thro' all his actions ran!
   What wondrous words of grace he spake!

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

  3 This is my body, broke for sin,
   Receive and eat the living food
Then took the cup, and bless'd the wine:
   'Tis the new cov'nant in my blood.
  4 For us his flesh with nails was torn,
   He bore the scourge, he felt the thorn;
And justice pour'd upon his head
   Its heavy vengeance, in our stead.
  5 For us his vital blood was spilt,
   To buy the pardon of our guilt;
When for black crimes of greatest size,
   He gave his soul a sacrifice.
  6 Do this, (he cried) 'till time shall end,
   In mem'ry of your dying friend:
Meet at my table, and record
   The love of your departed Lord.
  7 Jesus, thy feast we celebrate,
   We show thy death, we sing thy name;
Till thou return, and we shall eat
   The marriage supper of the Lamb.

HYMN 20. Second Part. L.M.
Communion with Christ at his table.

  1 TO Jesus, our exalted Lord,
Dear name, by hcav'n and earth ador'd!
Fain would our hearts and voices raise
A cheerful song of sacred praise.
  2 But all the notes which mortals know,
Are weak and languishing and low;
Far, far above our humble songs,
The theme demands immortal tongues.
  3 Yet while around his board we meet,
And hinnbly worship at his feet;
O let our warm affections move,
In glad returns of grateful love!
