2 Which of all our friends to save us
Could or would have shed his blood?
Reconciled in him to God.
Jesus is a friend in need.
Friend of sinners was His name;
He rejoices in the same.
Still to all their wants attends.
Teach us, Lord, at length to love;
What a friend we have above.
We will love Thee as we ought. 21.
Looking to Jesus.
Meek and humble may we be ;
Love Thee better day by day. 2 May we hate a lying tongue,
Never seek another's wrong;
3 Teach us for our friends to pray,
4 Thou didst once our nature take,
Born a child for sinners' sake;
In Thy holy likeness grow.
Form us new, that we may live-
To Thy temple in the skies. 22.
Prayer for Guidance,
Listen from Thy lofty seat;
Guide, O guide our wandering feet !
All our dangers do not know;
Hardly feel the tempest blow.
Cleanse us with Thy blood divine ;
C.M. 1 YOUNG children once to Jesus came,
His blessing to entreat;
Before His mercy-seat. 2 For when their feeble hands were spread,
And bent each infant knee;
And so He says to me.
The dear Redeemer smiled;
A poor unworthy child.
His tender pity drew,
Without a blessing too.
My youthful hands are spread,
Dear Jesus, on my head. 24.
Praise for Redemption, 6.8. 1 SHALL hymns of grateful love
Through heaven's high arches ring,
Their songs of triumph sing ?
2 Shall every ransomed tribe
Of Adam's scattered race
Who saved them by His grace? And, &c. 3 Shall they adore the Lord
Who bought them with His blood,
That led them home to God? And, &c. 4 O spread the joyful sound,
The Saviour's love proclaim,
Salvation, through His name,
And send the echo back again. 25.
Jesus the Friend of Sinners. 8.7. 1 JESUS, Lord of life and glory,
Friend of children, hear our lays;
Sing Thy name in hymns of praise. 2 O what debtors to Thy kindness,
Are we, God of boundless love!
Strangers to the light above. 3 Jesus, on Thine arm relying,
We would tread this earthly vale;
Be our strength, when strength shall fail. 4 Let us mount the hills of glory,
Far from sins, and woes, and pains ;
And in everlasting strains.
With all-engaging charms;
And folds them in His arms.
Nor scorn their humble name;
The Lord of ange's came.
Where living waters flow;
Where trees of knowledge grow. 4 The feeblest lamb amidst the flock
Shall be its Shepherd's care;
We're safe from every snare.
8.7.4. 1 MIGHTY God, while angels bless Thee,
May an infant lisp Thy name?
