HYMN 134. C.M.
The Walk of Faith. (cont.)

  5 Help me to tear it from the throne,
   And worship only thee.
  6 So shall my walk be close with God,
   Calm and serene my frame;
So faith and light shall mark the road
   That leads me to the Lamb.
  7 Faith purifies believers' hearts;
   Faith always works by love;
Receives with joy what Christ imparts,
   And longs for things above.

HYMN 135. L.M.
The Conflicts of faith.

  1 JESUS, our soul's delightful choice,
In thee believing, we rejoice;
Yet still our joy is mix'd with grief,
While faith contends with unbelief.
  2 Thy promises our hearts revive,
And keep our fainting hopes alive;
But guilt and fears, and sorrows rise,
And hide the promise from our eyes.
  3 Do thou the languid spark inflame,
That we may conquer in thy name;
And let not sin and Satan boast,
While saints lie mourning in the dust.
  4 Unequal to the conflict, Lord,
Too weak to wield the shield or sword,
On thine almighty arm we fall;
Be thou our Jesus, and our all.

HYMN 136. L.M.
The Trials of faith.

  1 I PRAYED the Lord, that 1 might grow
In faith, and love, and ev'ry grace;
Might more of his salvation know,
And seek more earnestly his face.

HYMN 136. L.M.
The Trials of faith. (cont.)

  2 'Twas he, who taught me thus to pray,
And he, I trust, has answer'd prayer;
But answer came in such a way,
As almost drove me to despair.
  3 I hop'd that in some favour'd hour,
At once he'd grant me my request;
And by his love's constraining pow'r
Subdue my sins and give me rest.
  4 Instead of this, he made me feel
The hidden evils of my heart;
And let the angry pow'rs of hell,
Assault my soul in ev'ry part.
  5 Yea more; with his own hand he seem'd
Intent to aggravate my woe;
Cross'd all the fair designs I schem'd,
Blasted my gourds, and laid me low.
  6 "Lord, why is this?" I trembling cried,
"Wilt thou pursue thy worm to death!
"'Tis in this way," the Lord replied,
"I answer prayer for grace and faith:
  7 "These inward trials I employ,
"From self and pride to set thee free;
"And break thy schemes of earthly joy,
"That thou mayest seek thine all in me."

HYMN 137. L.M.
The Trials of faith.

  1 WHO shall the Lord's elect condemn?
'Tis God that justifies their souls;
And mercy like a mighty stream,
O'er all their sins divinely rolls.
  2 Who shall adjudge the saints to hell?
'Tis Christ that suffer'd in their stead:
And the salvation to fulfil,
Behold him rising from the dead.
