Before Sermon. John 5. 25; Col. 2. 13; Isa. 61. 1-3

J. Newton         L.M.

1
May this be a much-favoured hour
To souls in Satan’s bondage led!
Lord, clothe thy word with sovereign power
To break the rocks, and raise the dead.

2
To mourners speak a cheering word;
On seeking souls vouchsafe to shine;
Let poor backsliders be restored,
And all thy saints in praises join.
