HYMN 137. L.M.
The Trials of faith. (cont.)

  3 He lives! he lives! and sits above,
Forever interceding there:
Who shall divide us from his love,
Or what should tempt us to despair?
  4 Shall persecution or distress,
Famine, or sword, or nakedness?
He, that hath lov'd us, bears us through,
And makes us more than conq'rors too.
  5 Faith hath an overcoming pow'r,
It triumphs in the dying hour:
Christ is our life, our joy, our hope;
Nor can w r e sink with such a prop.
  6 Not all that men on earth can do,
Nor pow'rs on high, nor pow'rs below,
Shall cause his mercy to remove,
Nor wean our hearts from Christ our love.

HYMN 138. C.M.
The Summary of faith.

  1 IN God the Father I believe,
   Who heav'n and earth did frame,
By his almighty Word; his praise
   And glory to proclaim.
  2 I do believe in Jesus Christ,
   God's only Son, our Lord,
Begotten from eternity,
   The everlasting Word.
  3 I in the Holy Ghost believe,
   A Person true, and one,
In essence, pow'r, eternity,
   With Father and with Son.
  4 An holy catholic Church I own,
   The heirs of heav'n design'd;
By union all to Christ their head,
   And one another join'd.

HYMN 138. C.M.
The Summary of faith. (cont.)

  5 Redemption thro' the blood of Christ
   I heartily embrace;
A full forgiveness of my sins,
   The gift of sov'reign grace.
  6 The Resurrection of the dead,
   Sincerely I maintain;
My soul and body glorified,
   With Christ shall live and reign.
  7 The hopes of everlasting Life,
   My fainting soul sustain:
To this I set my solemn seal,
   And say, in truth, Amen!
  8 To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
   The God whom we adore,
Be glory as it was, is now,
   And shall be evermore.

HYMN 139. P.M.
The song of Hannah - an encouragement to Prayer.

  1    WHEN Hannah press'd with grief,
   Pour'd forth her soul in pray'rs;
   She quickly found relief,
   And songs succeeded tears.
Like her, in ev'ry trying case,
Let us approach the throne of grace.
  2    When she began to pray,
   Her heart was pain'd and sad;
   But ere she went away,
   Was comforted and glad:
In trouble, what a resting place,
Have they, who know the throne of grace!
  3    Eli her case mistook;
   How was her spirit mov'd
   By his unkind rebuke!
   But God her cause approv'd.
