2   Our broken spirits, pitying, see,
And penitence impart; Then let a kindling glance from Thee Beam hope upon the heart.
3   When our responsive tongues essay
Their grateful hymns to raise, Grant that our souls may join the lay, And mount to Thee in 'praise.
4  When we disclose our wants in prayer,
May we our wills resign; And not a thought our bosom share Which is not wholly Thine.
5   Let faith each weak petition fill, '
And waft it to the skies,
And teach our hearts, 'tis goodness sti'l
That grants it, or denies.
J. D. Carlyle, 1804
2   Within these walls let holy peace,
And love and concord dwell;
And, in the presence of our Lord, Unbosom all our cares.
Here give the troubled conscience ease, e.                         ^ ,         c tu 1
,, &           ,.....                       '4 Show us some token of Thy love,
The wounded spirit heal.                  ■ ■                    .
r                                                  Our fainting hope to raise,
3  May we in faith receive Thy word,               And pour Thy blessing from above,
In faith present our prayers;                           That we may render praise.
Rev. John Newton, 1779- Ver. i, Thomas Cotterill, 1819
