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

  1 FATHER of mercies, in thy word
   What endless glory shines!
Forever be thy name adored
   For these celestial lines!
  2 Here may the wretched sons of want
   Exhaustless riches find;
Riches, above what earth can grant,
   And lasting as the mind.
  3 Here the fair tree of knowledge grows,
   And yields a sweet repast;
Sublimer sweets, than nature knows,
   Invite the longing taste.
  4 Here springs of consolation rise
   To cheer the fainting mind;
And thirsty souls receive supplies,
   And sweet refreshment find.
  5 Here the Redeemer's welcome voice
   Spreads heav'nly peace around;
And life and everlasting joys
   Attend the blissful sound!
  6 O may these heav'nly pages be
   My ever dear delight;
And still new beauties may I see,
   And still increasing light!
  7 Divine instructor, gracious Lord,
   Be thou forever near;
Teach me to love thy sacred word,
   And view my Saviour there!

HYMN 31. Third Part. L.M.

HYMN 31. Third Part. L.M.
The commission. (cont.)

  1 "He shall be sav'd, that trusts my word;
"And he condemn'd that won't believe.
  2 "I'll make your great commission known,
   "And ye shall prove my gospel true;
"By all the works, that I have done,
   "By all the wonders, ye shall do.
  3 "Go heal the sick, go raise the dead,
   "Go cast out devils in my name;
"Nor let my prophets be afraid,
   "Tho' Greeks reproach, and Jews blaspheme.
  4 "Teach all the nations my commands,
   "I'm with you, till the world shall end;
"All pow'r is trusted in my hands,
   "I can destroy, and can defend."
  5 He spake, and light shone round his head,
   On a bright cloud to heav'n he rode;
They to the farthest nations spread
   The grace of their ascended God.

HYMN 31. Fourth Part. L.M.
The gospel is the power of God to salvation.

  1 WHAT shall the dying sinner do,
That seeks relief for all his woe?
Where shall the guilty conscience find
Ease for the torment of the mind?
  2 How shall we get our crimes forgiv'n,
Or form our nature fit for heav'n?
Can souls, ail o'er defil'd with sin,
Make their own pow'rs and passions clean?
  3 In vain we search, in vain we try,
Till Jesus brings his gospel nigh;
'Tis there that pow'r and glory dwell,
That save rebellious souls from hell.
  4 This is the pillar of our hope,
That bears our iainting spirits up;
