HYMN 33. Third Part. C.M.
Conversion and Faith. (cont.)

  3 Our works are all the works of sin,
   Our nature quite deprav'd;
Jesus alone can make us clean:
   By grace are sinners sav'd.
  4 "Believe, believe," the gospel cries,
   "This is the living way:"
From faith in Christ our hopes arise,
   And shine to perfect day.
  5 Come, sinners, then, the Saviour trust,
   To wash you in his blood;
To change your hearts, subdue your lust,
   And bring you home to God.

HYMN 33. Fourth Part. L.M.
Christ our strength.

  1 LET me but hear my Saviour say,
Strength shall be equal to thy day;
Then I rejoice in deep distress,
Leaning on all-sufficient grace.
  2 I glory in infirmity,
That Christ's own pow'r may rest on me;
When I am weak, then am I strong,
Grace is my shield, and Christ my song.
  3 I can do all things, or can bear
All suff'rings, if my Lord be there;
Sweet pleasures mingle with the pains,
While his left hand my head sustains.
  4 But if the Lord be once withdrawn,
And we attempt the work alone,
When new temptations spring and rise,
We find how great our weakness is.

HYMN 34. First Part. C.M.
The moral Law.

  1 THAT God, who made the world on high,
   And air, and earth, and sea,

HYMN 34. First Part. C.M.
The moral Law. (cont.)

  1 Own as thy God, and to his name
   In homage bow thy knee.
  2 Let not a shape which hands have wrought
   Of wood, or clay, or stone,
Be deem'd thy God; nor think him like
   Aught, thou hast seen or known.
  3 Take not in vain the name of God:
   Nor must thou ever dare,
To make thy falsehood pass for truth,
   By his dread name to swear.
  4 That day on which he bids thee rest
   From toil, to pray, and praise;
That day keep holy to the Lord,
   And consecrate its rays.
  5 Thy father and thy mother love,
   Both honour and obey;
So shall thy life be blest with peace,
   And lengthen'd be thy day.
  6 The blood of man thou shalt not shed,
   Nor wrath, nor malice feel;
To maim, or hurt, or wish him dead,
   Is in thy heart to kill.
  7 Promiscuous lusts the Lord forbids,
   But honours wedlock pure;
Vast is the guilt of wicked lusts,
   Their punishment is sure.
  8 Thou shalt not, or from friend or foe,
   Take aught by force or stealth;
Thy goods, thy stores must grow from right,
   Or God will curse thy wealth.
  9 No man shalt thou by a false charge,
   Or crush or brand with shame:
