2 We will not bring divided hearts
To worship at thy shrine !
And leaves the temple thine.
Man's noblest work is praise.
Whilst we our voices raise.
HYMN XVIII. C. M.
The acceptable offering.
Through nature's ample round;
Thy energy is found.
To form our hearts anew;
And thy salvation shew!.
To guide our doubtful way;
And make a glorious day.
We'll do and bear thy will;
And every murmur still.
5 Cheer'd by thy smiles, we'll fearless tread
The gloomy path of death ;
To thee resign our breath.
HYMN XIX. 78 M.
Bow we down with holy fear ;
Let us feel that thou art near.
Come not where devotion kneels;
Glowing with the joy she feels.
We resign our earth-born cares;
Songs of praise and fervent prayers. 4 Hapless men, whose footsteps stray
From the temples of the Lord !
To their feet thy light afford. 5 Now begin the glorious song,
Theme of wonder, love and joy ;
HYMN XX. C. M.
Sincere worship alone acceptable.
Who sees't our inmost mind
And leave our souls behind.
With honour can appear ;
Through the disguise they wear. 3 Their lifted eye salutes the skies,
Their bended knees the ground ; But God abhors the sacrifice,
Where not the heart is found. 4 Lord ! search my thoughts, and try my
And find acceptance there.
HYMN XXI. C. M.
1 Wherewith shall I approach the Lord,
And bow before his throne ? What shall sweet peace of mind afford ?
What for my faults atone ?
2 Shall altars flame and victims bleed,
And spicy fumes ascend ?
And make my God my friend ?
3 Alas! 'twere idle mock’ry all,
Such victims bleed in vain;
Such favour can obtain. 4 Well dost thou know what must delight,
And what acceptance win;
And life estrang'd from sin.
And to his glory live; .
And proofs of kindness give. 6 Hands that are clean, and hearts sincere
God never will despise ; And cheerful duty he'll prefer
To costly sacrifice.
HYMN XXII. L. M.
The vanity of forms without true piety. 1 Th’ uplifted eye and bended knee
Are but vain homage, Lord! to thee;
In vain our lips thy praise prolong,
The heart a stranger to the song. 2 Can rites, and forms, and flaming zeal,
The breaches of thy precepts heal ?
3 The pure, the humble, contrite mind,
Sincere, and to thy will resigned, „To thee a nobler off’ring yields, Than fragrant groves, or fertile fields.
4 Love God and man-this great command
Doth on eternal pillars stand :
HYMN XXIII. C. M.
The inefficacy of hymns without devotion. 1 Great God! what rich provision's made,
To fit our souls for heav'n!
How great the aid that's giv'n! 2 Thy word in ev'ry part displays
The wonders of thy grace :
Thy care for all our race.
