1 Oh! let the dead now hear Thy voice;
Did, Lord, Thy banished ones rejoice; Our beauty this, our glerious dress, Jesus, the Lord, our Righteousness.
6 E'en so I love Thee, and will love,
And in Thy praise will sing ; Solely because Thou art my God,
And my eternal King.
HYJIN 255. C. II.
IIYUN 253. C. VI.
ESUS! the very thought of Thee
With sweetness fills my breast;
And in Thy presence rest. 2 No voice c:in sing, no heart can frame,
Vor can the memory find,
The Saviour of mankind.
Oh, joy of all the meek,
Ilo: good to those who seek ! 4 But what to those who find ? Ah! this
For tongue nor ren can slow;
None lut Ilis loved ones know. 55 Jesus! our only joy be Thou,
As Thou our prize wilt be;
And through eternity.
COW sweet the name of Jesus sounds,
In a believer's car!
And drives away his sear.
And calms the troubled breast; 'Tis manua to the hungry soul, And for the weary,
rest. 3 Dear name! the rock on which I build,
My shield and hiding-place; lly never-failing treasury filled
With boundless stores of grace.
Although with sin defiled;
And I am owned a child. 5 Jesus ! my Shepherd, Guardian, Friend,
My Prophet, Priest, and King,
Accept the praise I bring.
And cold my warmest thought;
I'll piaise Thee as I ought.
With every fleeting breath; And may the music of Thy name
Refreslı my soul in death.
Thus unite we to adore Him,
Bid we thuis our anthems flow.
3 Lord, Thy glory fills the heaven;
Earth is with its fulness stored ;
Iloly, holy, holy Lord !
We adopt the angels' crv,
Thee, the Lord our God most Iligh !
3 Hail Him, the Heir of David's line,
Wlom David, Lord did call;
And crown Him-Lord of all. 4 Ye chosen seed of Israel's race,
Ye ransomed from the fall,
And crown Ilim-Lord of all.
The wormwood and the gall,
And crown Him—Lord of all. 6 Let every kindred, every tribe
On this terrestrial ball,
And crown IIim-Lord of all.
2 IIe saw me ruined in the fall,
Yet loved me notwithstanding all ;
His loving-kindness, oh, how great ! 3 Though numerous hosts of mighty foes,
Though earth anıl bell my way oppose, Ile safely leads my soul along;
Llis loving-kindness, oh, how strong! 4 When trouble, like a gloomy cloud,
IIas gathered thick, and thundered loud, lle near my soul has always stood;
Ilis loving-kindness, oli, how good ! 5 Often I feel my sinful heart
Prone from my Saviour to depart,
IIis loving-kindness changes not.
Soon all my mortal powers must fail ;
Ilis loving-kindness sing in death! 7 Then let me mount and soar away
To the bright world of endless day;
Alleluia, 2 The planets beaming on their heavenly way, The shining constellations, join and say,
Your Alleluia, 3 Ye floods and ocean billows,
Ye storms and winter snow,
IIoar frost and summer glow,
gay, Exalt their great Creator's praise, and say
Alleluia. 4 Then let the beasts of carth, with varying
Here let the mountains thunder forth sono
Alleluia. IIere let the valleys sing in gentler chorus
Alleluia. Thou jubilant abyss of ocean cry,
Alleluia. Ye tracts of earth and continents reply,
2 Far up the everlasting hills,
In God's own light it lies ;
With joy that lever dies. 3 Ore narrow vale, one darksome wave,
Divides that land from this;
And bear me home to bliss.
5 To God who all creation made, The frequent hymn be duly paid,
Alleluia. This is the strain, the eternal strain, the
Lord Almighty loves, Alleluia. This is the song, the heavenly song, that
Christ the King approves. Alleluia. Therefore we sing, both heart and voice awaking,
Alleluia. And children's voices ccho, answer making,
Alleluia! Alleluia ! Alleluia ! Amen.
4 Soon at His feet my soul will lie,
In life's last struggling breath ; But I shall only seem to die,
I shall not taste of death. 5 Far from this guilty world, to be
Exempt from toil and strife ;
My Saviour, this is life!
IIYJN 262. C. M.
O Land belp me to resign
LORD, my best desire fulfil,
PEACE. IIYUN 260. C. M.
O" for a heart to praise
A heart from sin set free!
So freely spilt for me;
My great Redeemer's throne; Where only Christ is heard to speak,
Where Jesus reigns alone;
Believing, true, and clean ;
From Ilim that dwells within ;
And full of love divine, Perfect, and right, and pure, and good,
A copy, Lord, of Thine ! 5 Thy nature, gracious Lord, impart;
Come quickly from above; Write Thy new name upon my heart,
Thy new, best name of Love.
Lise, health, and comfort to Thy will,
And make Thy pleasure mine. 2 Why should I shrink at Thy command,
Whose love forbids my fears?
That wipes away my tears? 3 No, rather let me freely yield
What most I prize to Thee,
Or wilt withhold, from me.
Thou art engaged to grant;
'Tis better still to want.
Shall I resist them both ?
And crushed before the moth ! 6 But ol ! my inward spirit cries,
Still bind me to Thy sway!
Drives all these thoughts aray.
2 My Saviour, as Thou wilt!
5 Ilold Thou Thy cross before my closing eyes; If needy here and poor,
Shine through the gloom, and point me to Give me Thy people's bread,
the skies; Their portion rich and sure.
Heaven's morning breaks, and earth's rain The manna of Thy word
shadows flee; Lct my soul feed upon;
In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me. And if all else should fail,
HIYAN 265. L. M.
TORTII in Thy name, O Lord, I go, 3 My Saviour, as Thou wilt!
My daily labor to pursue;
Thee, only Thee, resolved to know,
In all I think, or speak, or do.
? Give me to bear Thy easy yoke, Since Thou on earth hast wept
And every moment watch and pray; And sorrowed oft alone,
And still to things eternal look,
And hasten to that glorious day.
3 Fain would I still for Thee employ 4 My Saviour, as Thou wilt!
Whate'er Thy bounteous grace liath All shall be well for me:
given ; Each changing future scene,
Would run my course with even jos,
lud closely walk with Thee to hearen. Straight to my home above, I travel calmly on,
IIYMY 266. C. M.
VAR from the world, O Lord, I fee,
From strife and tumult far;
Ilis most successful war.
2 The calm retreat, the silent shade,
With prayer and praise agree;
For those that follow Thee.
3 There if Thy Spirit touch the soul, When other helpers fail, and comforts flee, And grace her mean abode, Ilelp of the helpless, abide with me. Oh with what peace, and joy, and lore,
She communes with her God! 2 Swist to its close ebbs out life's little day; Earth’s joys grow dim, its glories pass 1 Thiere, like the nightingale, she pours
IIer solitary lays, away;
Nor asks a witness of her song, Change and decay on all around I see; 0 Thou who changest not, abiile with me.
Nor thirsts for human praise.
5 Author and Guardian of my life! 3 I need Tly presence every passing hour;
Sweet source of life divine, What but Thy grace can foil the tempter's
And-all harmonious names in onepower?
My Saviour! Thou art mine. Who like 'Thyself, my guide and stay can
6 What thanks I owe Thee, and what love, be?
A boundless, endless store, Through cloud and sunshine, Lord, abide
Shall echo through the realms above, with me.
When time shall be no more. 1 I fear no foe, with Thee at hand to bless;
IIYAN 267. P. M. Ils have no weight, and tears no bitter
ness. Where is death's sting? where, grave, thy
Nearer to Thee ! victory?
E’en though it be a cross I triumphi still, if Thou abide with me.
That raiseth me;
NEARER, my God, to Thee !
Still all my song shall be, Vearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer to Thee!
Be every mourner's sleep to-night,
Like infant slumbers, pure and light. 6 Come near and bless us when we wake,
Ere gh the world our way we take,
2 Though like a wanderer,
Weary and lone,
Vy rest a stone,
Vearer to Thee!
HYMN 269. L. M.
A SLEEP in Jesus de blessed, plespot
3 There let my way appear
Steps unto heaven;
In mercy given;
Vearer to Thee!
4 Then, with my waking thoughts
Bright with Thy praise,
Altars I'll raise ;
Nearer to Thee!
From which none ever wakes to weep; A calm and undisturbed repose,
Unbroken by the last of foes.
To be for such a slumber meet;
That death has lost its painful sting. 3 Asleep in Jesus! peaceful rest !
Whose waking is supremely blest ;
That manifests the Saviour's power. 4 Asleep in Jesus! oh, for me
May such a blissful refuge be;
Waiting the summons from on high. 5 Asleep in Jesus! far from thee
Thy kindred and their graves may be;
5 Or, if on joyful wing,
Cleaving the sky,
Upward I fly ;
Searer to Thee!
IIYUN 268. L. M.
UN of my soul, Thou Saviour dear,
It is not night if Thou be near; Oh, may no carth-born cloud arise
To hide Thee from Thy servant's eyes. 2 When the soft dews of kindly sleep
My wearied eye-lids gently steep,
For ever on my Saviour's breast.
For without Thee I cannot live;
For without Thee I dare not die. 4 If some poor wandering child of Thing
Hlave spurned to day the voice divine,
Let him no more lic down in sin.
With blessings from Thy boundless store ;
IIYMN 270. S. MI.
Amen, so let it be:
Absent from Him I roam,
A day's march nearer home. 3 My Father's house on higli,
Home of my soul, how near
The golden gates appe:r! 4 Al, then my spirit faints
To reach the land I love,
And all my prospect flies; Like Yoah's dove, I flit between Rough seas and stormy skies.
