HYMN 30. Second Part. P.M.
Christ our High Priest. (cont.)

  2 For sinners, who his mercy seek,
A priest, as was Melchizedec.
  3    He once temptations knew,
   Of ev'ry sort and kind,
   That he might succour show.
   To ev'ry tempted mind:
He once for us was sacrific'd,
And only once for us he dy'd,
  4    I other priests disclaim,
   And laws and off'rings too,
   None but the bleeding Lamb
   The mighty work can do:
He shall have all the praise: for he
Hath lov'd, and liv'd, and died for me.

HYMN 30. Third Part. C.M.
The Communicant.

  1 HOW sweet and awful is the place,
   With Christ within the doors;
While everlasting love displays
   The choicest of her stores!
  2 Here ev'ry bowel of our God
   With soft compassion rolls;
Here peace and pardon bought with blood,
   Is food for dying souls.
  3 While all our hearts, and all our songs,
   Join to admire the feast;
Each of us cries with thankful tongues,
   "Lord, why was I a guest?
  4 "Why was I made to hear thy voice,
   "And enter while there's room;
"When thousands make a wretched choice,
   "And rather starve than come?"
  5 'Twas the same love, that spread the feast,
   That sweetly forc'd us in;

HYMN 30. Third Part. C.M.
The Communicant. (cont.)

  5 Else we had still refus'd to taste,
   And perish'd in our sin.
  6 Pity the hypocrites, O Lord,
   Direct them how to come;
Teach them to know and fear thy word,
   And bring the strangers home.
  7 We long to see thy churches full;
   That all the chosen race
May with one voice, and heart, and soul,
   Sing thy redeeming grace.

HYMN 31. First Part. L.M.
Jesus hath the key of the kingdom of heaven.

  1 WITH what delight I raise my eyes,
And view the courts where Jesus dwells!
Jesus, who reigns above the skies,
And here below his grace reveals.
  2 Of God's own house the sacred key
Is borne by that majestic hand;
Mansions and treasures there I see
Subjected all to his command.
  3 He shuts, and worlds might strive in vain
The mighty obstacle to move;
He looses all their bars again,
And who shall shut the gates of love!
  4 Fix'd in omnipotence, he bears
The glories of his Father's name;
Sustains his people's weighty cares,
Thro' ev'ry changing age the same.
  5 My little all I here suspend,
Where the whole weight of heav'n is hung;
Secure I rest on such a friend,
And into raptures wake my tongue.
