Backsliding and Forgiveness; or, Sin punished and Saints saved

Hymnal: Doctor Watts's imitation of the Psalms of David, to which is added a collection of hymns; the whole applied to the state of the Christian Church in general (3rd ed.) #139 (1786) Topics: Backsliding pardoned; Pardon of backsliding; Backsliding pardoned; Pardon of backsliding First Line: Great God, how oft did Israel prove Lyrics: 1 Great God, how oft did Israel prove By turns thine anger, and thy love? There is a glass our hearts may see How fickle and how false they be. 2 How soon the faithless Jews forgot The dreadful wonders God had wrought? Then they provoke him to his face, Nor fear his power, nor trust his grace. 3 The Lord consum'd their years in pain, And made their travels long and vain; A tedious march through unknown ways Wore out their strength, and spent their days. 4 Oft when they saw their brethren slain, They mourn'd, and sought the Lord again; Call'd him the rock of their abode, Their high Redeemer, and their God. 5 Their prayers and vows before him rise As flattering words or solemn lies, While their rebellious tempers prove False to his covenant and his love. 6 Yet could his sovereign grace forgive The men who not deserv'd to live; His anger oft away he turn'd, Or else with gentle flame it burn'd. 7 He saw their flesh was weak and frail, He saw temptations still prevail; The God of Abraham lov'd them still, And led them to his holy hill.

Backsliding and returning; or, the backslider's Prayer

Hymnal: A Selection of Hymns #CCCXIII (1792) Topics: Backslidings and Returns; Christian Backsliding and returning First Line: Jesus let thy pitying eye Lyrics: 1 Jesus let thy pitying eye Call back a wand'ring sheep; False to my vows, like Peter, I Would fain like Peter weep. Let me be by grace restor'd, On me be all its freeness shewn; Turn and look upon me, Lord, And break my heart of stone. 2 Savior, prince, enthron'd above, Repentance to impart, Give me, thro' thy dying love, The humble, contrite heart; Give, what I have long implor'd, A portion of thy grief unknown; Turn and look upon me, Lord, And break my heart of stone. 3 See me, Savior, from above, Nor suffer me to die; Life and happiness, and love, Smile in thy gracious eye; Speak the reconciling word, And let thy mercy melt me down; Turn and look upon me, Lord, And break my heart of stone. 4 Look, as when thy pitying eye Was clos'd that we might live; "Father (at the point to die, My Savior gasp'd) forgive!" Surely with thy dying word, He turns, and looks, and cries, "'Tis done!" O! my loving, bleeding Lord, This breaks my heart of stone. Languages: English
