HYMN 59. P.M.
Invitation - It is finished. (cont.)

  5 Hallelujah!
Glory to the bleeding Lamb!

HYMN 60. L.M.
The memorials of our absent Lord.

  1 JESUS is gone above the skies,
Where our weak senses reach him not;
And carnal objects court our eyes,
To thrust our Saviour from our thought.
  2 He knows what wand'ring hearts we have,
Apt to forget his lovely face:
And, to refresh our minds, he gave
These kind memorials of his grace.
  3 The Lord of life this table spread
With his own flesh, and dying blood;
We on the rich provision feed,
And taste the wine, and bless our God.
  4 Let sinful sweets be all forgot,
And earth grow less in our esteem;
Christ and his love fill ev'ry thought,
And faith and hope be fix'd on him.
  5 While he is absent from our sight,
'Tis to prepare our souls a place;
That we may dwell in heav'nly light,
And live for ever near his face.
  6 Our eyes look upwards to the hills,
Whence our returning Lord shall come;
We wait thy chariot's awful wheels,
To fetch our longing spirits home.

HYMN 61. First Part. C.M.
The Love of Christ.

  1 HOW condescending, and how kind,
   Was God's eternal Son!
Our mis'ry reach'd his heav'nly mind,
   And pity brought him down.

HYMN 61. C.M.
The Love of Christ. (cont.)

  2 When justice, by our sins provok'd,
   Drew forth his dreadful sword;
He gave his soul up to the stroke,
   Without a murm'ring word.
  3 Here we receive repeated seals
   Of Jesus' dying love:
Hard is the wretch that never feels
   One soft affection move.
  4 Here let our hearts begin to melt,
   While we his death record;
And, with our joy for pardon'd guilt,
   Mourn that we pierc'd the Lord.

HYMN 62. C.M.
Christ the Bread of Life.

  1 LET us adore th' eternal Word,
   'Tis he our souls hath fed;
Thou art our living stream, O Lord,
   And thou th' immortal bread.
  2 Bless'd be the Lord, that gives his flesh
   To nourish dying men;
And often spreads his table fresh,
   Lest we should faint again.
  3 Our souls shall draw their heav'nly breath,
   Whilst Jesus finds supplies;
Nor shall our graces sink to death:
   For Jesus never dies.
  4 The God of mercy be ador'd,
   Who calls our souls from death;
Who saves by his redeeming word,
   And new-creating breath.
  5 To praise the Father, and the Son,
   And Spirit all divine,
The One in Three, and Three in One,
   Let saints and angels join.
