Alllictions do not come alone

. 151 Happy are they, to whom the Lord
Afflictions, though they seem severe.

. 142 Hark, my soul! it is the Lord
A garden contemplation suits

· 178 Hark! how time's wide-sounding bell
A glance from heaven, with sweet effect

. 175 Happy the birth where grace presides
A shelter from the rain or wind

. 179 Heal us, Emmanuel, here we are.
Ah! what can I do

. . 182 Hear what God the Lord hath spoken

Alas! Elisha's servant cried :

. 123 Hear what the Lord, the great Åmen

Alas! by nature how depraved .

160 He who on earth as man was known

A lion, though by nature wild

178 Here at Bethesda's pool, the poor

Almighty King! whose wondrous hand

202 His master taken from his head

Although on massy pillars built

11 Holy Lord God! I love thy truth

Amazing grace! (how sweet the sound!)

123 | Honour and happiness unite

Approach, my soul, the mercy-seat

184 Honey though the bee prepares.

As birds their infant brood protect

132 How blest the righteous are.
As needles point towards the pole

How blest thy creature is, O Lord
As once for Jonah, so the Lord.

. 133 How David, when by sin deceived
As parched in the barren sands

. 130 How hurtful was the choice of Lot
As soine tall rock amidst the waves

. 146 How kind the good Samaritan .

As the serpent raised by Moses .

129 How lost was my condition :

As the sun's enlivening eye .

172 How soon the Saviour's gracious call
As when the weary traveller gains

How sweet the name of Jesus sounds

A word from Jesus calms the sea

How tedious and tasteless the hours.

A worlding spent each day

. 142 How welcome to the saints when pressed

Hungry, and faint, and poor .

B

Before Elisha's gate

123

I

Begone, unbelief

191 I am, saith Christ, your glorious head
Behold the throne of grace

I ask'd the Lord that I might grow
Beneath the tyrant Satan's yoke

159

If for a time the air be calm

Beside the gospel-pool

. 144 If Paul in Cæsar's court must stand

Bestow, dear Lord, upon our youth

. 155 | If Solomon for wisdom prayed .

Be still, my heart! these anxious cares

· 192 If the Lord our leader be.
Bitter, indeed, the waters are

.. 115 If to Jesus for relief . .
Bleak winter is subdued at length.

. 101 Incarnate God! the soul that knows

Blinded in youth by Satan's arts

In evil long I took delight

Breathe from the gentle south, O Lord

184 In mercy, not in wrath, rebuke

By various maxims, forms, and rules

In themselves, as weak as worms

By faith in Christ, I walk with God.

In vain my fancy strives to paint.

By the poor widow's oil and meal

Israel in ancient days .
By whom was David taught.

116 I thirst, but not as once I did

I was a grovelling creature once

C

I will praise thee every day

Cheer up, my soul, there is a mercy-seat

184 I would, but cannot sing

Chief shepherd of thy chosen sheep

166

Cupe, my soul, thy suit prepare

J
Confirm the hope thy word allows

. 204 Jesus Christ, the Lord's anointed
Constrained by their Lord to embark

1415 Jesus, to what didst thou submit .
Could the creatures help or ease us

... 138 Jesus, who bought us with his blood

Courage, my soul! behold the prize

. 173 Jesus, whose blood so freely streamed

Jesus, where'er thy people meet

D

Jesus is mine! I'm now prepared

Darkness overspreads us here

148 John, in a vision, saw the day

Day of Judgment, day wonders

. 173 Joy is a fruit that will not grow

Dear Lord! accept a sinful heart
Destruction's dangerous road

K
Does it not grief and wonder move

Elijah's example declares.

. 122 Legion was my name by nature
Elisha, struck with grief and awe

158 Let hearts and tongues unite
Encourag'd by thy word

Let us adore the grace that seeks
Ensnared too long my heart has been

Let me dwell on Golgotha
Ere God had built the mountains

. 126 Let us love, and sing, and wonder

Let worldly minds the world pursue
F

Lord, my soul with pleasure springs .
Far from the world, O Lord, I flee

. 193 Lord, thou hast won, at length I yield

Father, forgive (the Saviour said).

. 143 Lord, who hast suffer'd all for me.

Father of angels and of men

. 206 Lord, what is man! extremes how wide

Fervent persevering prayers

Fierce passions discompose the mind

M

Fix my heart and eyes on thine

198 Manna to Israel well supplied .

Forest beasts, that live by prey.

190 Martha her love and joy expressed

For mercies countless as the sands

· 126 Mary to her Saviour's tomb

From Egypt lately freed

192 May the grace of Christ our Saviour

From pole to pole let others roam

131 Mercy, O thou Son of David
From Sheba a distant report.

121 My barns are full, my stores increase

My former hopes are fled .

My God! how perfect are thy ways
Gladness was spread through Israel's host . 166 My God! till I received thy stroke
Glorious things of thee are spoken

129 My harp untuned, and laid aside
Glory to God the Father's name

206 My song shall bless the Lord of all
God gives his mercies to be spent

O

Of all the gifts thine hand bestows
often the public means of grace
Oft as the bell, with solemn toll
Of as the lepir's case I read
Of in vain the voice of truth
O God, whose favourable eye
O David's Son, and David's Lord
O Lord, our languid souls inspire
O Lord, how vile am I.
O Lord, my best desire fulfil.
O thou, at whose almighty word
O bajpy they who know the Lord.
O pak that gracious word again
Oh for a closer walk with God
Oh! may the power which melts the rock
O how I love ihy holy word .

Once a woman silent stood

Once peri-bing in blood I lay

Once, while we aimed at Zion's songs

on man, in his own image made

On the same flower we often see

One awful word which Jesus spoke

One glance of thine, eternal Lord

One there is above all others

Oppreesd with unbelief and sin

Our Lord, who knows full well
