3 But the pains which He endured

Our salvation have procured ;
Now above the sky He's King,
Where the angels ever sing,

Hallelujah!

Oh, make me Thine for ever,

And should I fainting be,
Lord, let me never, never,

Outlive my love to Thee. 4 Be near when I am dying ;

Oh, show Thy cross to me!
And to my succor flying,

Come, Lord, and set me free.
These eyes new faith receiviny,

From Thine eres shall not move;
For he who dies believing

Dies safely through Thy love.

VIIE atoning work is done,

The Victim's blood is she'l, And Jesus now is gone

IIis people's cause to plead ; IIe stands in heaven their great High Priest,

And bears their names upon llis breast. 2 IIe sprinkles with Ilis blood

The mercy-seat above;
For justice had withstood

The purposes of love;
But justice now withstands no more,

And merey yields her boundless store. 3 Yo temple maile with hands,

Ilis place of service is ;
In heaven itself Ile stands;

A Ileavenly Priesthood Ilis.
In llim the shadows of the law

Are all fulfilled, and now withdraiv. 4 And though awhile Ile be

llid from the eyes of men,
Ilis people look to see

Their great IIigh Priest again ;
In brightest glory he will come,
And take llis waiting people home.

Christ, a while to mortals given,

Enters now the bighest heaven. 2 There for IIim high triumph waits ;

Lift your heads, eternal gates !
Conqueror over death and sin,

Take the King of glory in.
3 Lo, the heaven its Lord receives !

Yet He loves the earth IIc leares:
Though returning to His throne,

Still lle calls mankind His own. 4 Still for us IIe intercedes,

Ilis prevailing death He pleads;
Near IIimself prepares our place,

Great forerunner of our race. 5 Lord, though parted from our sight,

Far above yon azure height,
Grant our hearts may thither rise

Following Thee beyond the skies. 6 Master (will we ever say),

Taken from our head to-day,
See Thy faithful servants, see,
Erer gazing up to Thce.

IIERE high the heavenly templo

stands, The house of God not made with hands, A great lligh-Priest our nature wears,

The guardian of mankind appears. 2 Though now ascended up on high,

lle bends to carth a brother's eya ; Partaker of the human name,

IIe knows the frailty of our framc. 3 Our fellow-suserer yet retains

A fellow-fueling for our pains ;
And still remembers, in the skies,
Ilis tears, Ilis agonies, and cries.
In every pang that rends the heart,
The Man of sorrows had a part;
lle sympathizes in our grief,
And to the sufferer sends relief.

5 With boldness, therefore, at the throne,

Let us make all our sorrows known,
And ask the aids of heavenly power,
To help us in the evil hour.

With lustre shining more and more

Unto the perfect day : Spirit of Truth, be Thou

In life and death our guide; O Spirit of Adoption, now

Day we be sanctified.

YREATOR Spirit, by whose aiil

The world's foundations first were laid, Come, visit every waiting mind;

Come, pour Thy joys on human kind. 2 Thrice IIoly Fount, thrice iloly l'ire,

Our hearts with heavenly love inspire;
('oine, and Thy sacred unction bring

To sanctify us while we sing. 3 0 Source of uncreated light,

The Father's promised Paraclete !
From sin and sorrow set us free,

And make us temples wortby Thee ! 4 Our frailties help, our vice control,

Subdue the senses to the soul;
And when rebellious they are grown,

Then lay Thy hand and holil them down. 5 Chase from our minds th' infernal foe,

And peace, the fruit of love, bestow;
And lest our feet should stop astray,

Protect and guide us in the way. 6 Jake is eternal truths receive,

And practice all that we believe;
Give us Thyself, that we may see
Tlic Father, and the Son, by Thee.

HIYMN 238. C. M.
PIRIT of Truth! on this Thy day

To Thee for help we cry,
To guiile us through the dreary way

Of dark mortality.
2 We ask not, Lord, the cloven flame

Or tongucs of various tone;
But long Thy praises to proclaim,

With fervor in our own.
3 Wc mourn not that prophetic skill

Is found on earth no more;
Enouglı for us to trace Thy will

In Scripture's sacred lore. 4 Though tongies shall cease and power de

Caly,
And knowledge empty prove,
Do Thon Thy trembling servants stay

With faith, with liope, with love.

As time with rapid pinions flies,

May every season make us wise. 2 Long has Thy fivor crowned our days,

And summer shed again its rays; No deadly cloud our sky has veilel;

No blasting winds our path assailed. 3 Our harvest months have o er us rolled,

And lilleil our fields with waving gold ; Our tablos spread, our garners stored !

Where are our hearts to praise the Lord ? 4 The solemn harvest comes apace',

The closing day of life and grace;
Time ofilecision, awful hour!

Around it let no tempests lower !

Like stars in heaven to rise and shine;
Thou shall our happy souls above
Reap the full harvest of Thy love!

The path of peace have trod,
Whose secret heart, with influence sweet,

Is upward drawn to God. 3 By cool Siloam's shady rill

The lily must decay ;
The rose, that bloonis beneath the hill,

Must shortly fade away.

Of man's maturer age
Will shake the soul with sorrow's power,

And stormy passion's rage.

In childhood, manhood, age, and death,

To keep us still Thinc own.

restore thee; And death hath no sting, for the Sav. jour hath died.

To rid my soul of one dark blot,
To Thee, whose blood can cleanse each spot,

O Lamb of God, I come.

With many a conflict, many a doubt,
With fears within, and foes without,

O Lamb of God, I come.

Sight, riches, healing of the mind,
Yea, all I neel, in Thee to find,

Wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, reliere;
Because Thy promise I believe,

O Lamb of God, I come.

Ilus bioken every barrier down;
Now to be Thine, yea, Thine alone,

O Lamlı of God, I come.

3 With my burden I begin ;

Lord, remove this load of sin;
Let Thy blood, for sinners spilt,

Set my conscience free from guilt. 4 Lord, I come to Thee for rest,

Take possession of my breast;
There Thy blood-bought right maintain,

And without a rival reign. 5 While I am a pilgrim liere,

Let Thy love my spirit cheer;
As my Cuidle, my Guard, my friend,

Learl me to my journey's end. 6 Show me what I have to do,

Every hour my strength renew;
Let me live a life of faith,
Let me die Thy people's death.

Mercy still reserved for me? ('an my Go:1 IIis wrath forbear?

Long provoked llim to Ilis face;
Would not hearken to Ilis calls;

Grieved Ilim by a thousand falls. 3 Kindled Ilis relentings are;

Shows llis wounds, and spreads llis hands;

Fountain for guilt and sin ! Sprinkle me ever with Thy blood,

And cleanse and keep me clean, 3 Wash me, and make me thus Thine omn;

Wash me, and mine Thouart; Wash me, but not my feet alone,

When ruined nature sinks in years; No age can change its glorious hue; The robe of Christ is erer new.
