Sickness and sorrow, pain and death,

Are felt and feared no more.
Ő When shall I reach that happy place,

And be forever blest ?
When shall I see my Father's face,

And in Ilis bosom rest?
6 Filled with delight, my raptured soul

Can here no longer stay; Though Jordan's waves around me roll,

Fearless I'd launch away.

JERUSALEM, my happy home!


Name ever dear to me!
When shall my labors have an end,

In joy, and peace, and Thee! 2 Thy walls are made of precious stones,

Thy bulwarks diamond-square, Thy gates are all of orient pearl :

O God! if I were there !
3 O my sweet home, Jerusalem !

Thy joys when shall I see?
The King that sitteth on Thy throne

In His felicity!
4 Tby gardens, and Thy goodly walks,

Continually are green, Where grow such sweet and pleasant flow


As nowhere else are seen. 6 Right through Thy streets, with pleasing

sound, The living waters flow, And on the banks on either side,

The trees of life do grow. 6 Those trees each month vield ripened fruit;

For evermore they spring, And all the nations of the earth

To Thee their bonours bring. 7 Oh, mother dear; Jerusalem,

When shall I come to Thee?
When shall my sorrows bave an end ?

Thy joys when shall I see?

IIYMN 273. P. M. DAY

AY of wrath ! that day of mourning!

See fulfilled the prophet's warning, Heaven and earth in ashes burning ! 2 Oh, what fear man's bosom rendeth,

When from heaven the Judge descendetb,

On whose sentence all dependeth ! 3 Lo! the trumpet's wondrous swelling

Peals through each sepulchral dwelling,

All before the Throne compelling. 4 Death is struck, and nature quaking,

All creation is awaking,

To its Judge an answer making. Ő Lo, the book, exactly worded,

Wherein all hath been recorded ;

Thence shall justice be awarded. 6 When the Judge His seat attaineth,

And each hidden deed arraigneth,

Nothing unavenged remaineth. :7 What shall I, frail man, be pleading ?

Who for me be interceding,

When the just are mercy needing ? 8 King of majesty tremendous,

Who dost free salvation send us,

Fount of pity! then befriend us ! 9 Think, kind Jesus, my salration

Cost Thy wondrous Incarnation ;

Leave me not to reprobation! 10 Faint and weary Thou hast sought me,

On the cross of suffering bought me;

Shall such grace in vain be brought me ? 11 Righteous Judge! for sin's pollution

Grant Thy gift of absolution,

Ere that day of retribution.
12 Guilty, now I pour my moaning,

All my shame with anguish owning;
Spare, O God, Thy suppliant groaning i

a eye To Canaan's fair and happy land,

Where my possessions lie.
2 Oh, the transporting, rapturous scene,

That rises to my sight!
Sweet fields arrayed in living green,

And rivers of delight!
3 O'er all those wide, extended plains

Sbines one eternal day;
There God the Son forever reigns,

And scatters night away. 4 No chilling winds, nor poisonous breath, Can reach that healthful shore;

IIYUN 275.


13 Thou the harlot gav'st remission,

Heard'st the dying thief's petition;

Hopeless eise were my condition. 14 Worthless are my prayers and sighing,

Yet, good Lord, in grace complying,
Rescue me from fires undying !

15 With Thy favoured sheep, oh, place me!

Vor among the goats abase me;

But to Thy right hand upraise me. 16 While the wicked are confounded,

Doomed to flames of woc unbounded,

Call me, with Thy saints surrounded. 17 Bow my heart in meek submission,

Strewn with asbes of contrition ;

IIelp me in my last condition. 18 Day of sorrows, day of weeping,

When in dust no longer sleeping,

Jan awakes in Thy dread keeping ! 19 To the rest Thou did:t prepare him

By Thy Cross, O Christ, upbear him;
Spare, O God, in mercy spare him.

RIEF life is here our portion,

Brief sorrow, short-lived care;
The life that knows no ending,

The tearless life is there.
Oh, happy retribution !

Short toil, eternal rest;
For mortals and for sinners,

A mansion with the blest. 2 And now we fight the battle,

But then shall wear the crown
Of full and everlasting

And passionless renown.
The morning shall anaken,

The shadows pass away,
And each true-hearted servant

Shall shine as doth the day.
3 Oh, sweet and blessed country!

The home of God's elect;
Oh, sweet and blessed country,

That eager hcarts espect !
Jesus, in mercy bring us

To that dear land of rest;
Who art with God, the Father,

And Spirit, ever blest,


IIYUN 274.

Le nors Thion King Eternal

ET me not, Thou King Eternal,

Enter hell's domain infernal !
Where is grieving, where is sadness,
Where is sorrow, where is madness,
Where despair is ever sighing,
Where the worm is never dying,
Where the shameless are astounded,

Where the guilty are confounded. 2 Vc, may Zion welcome, saved ;

Tranquil city, seat of David ;
God its builder, lig!ıt immortal ;
Orient pearl each blazing portal ;
Crystal gold its streets; the nation
Of the blest its population;
Living rock the walls that bound it,

Christ the guard that dwells around it. 3 With what joyous gratulations

Throny Thy gates the festive nations ! What the warmth of their embracing ! What the gems Thy walls enchasing ! Through that city's streets are wending, Holy throngs their anthems blending; There may 1, with inyriads glorious, Chant Thy praise in psalms victorious !

HYSIN 276.

, ! With milk and honey blest; Beneath thy contemplation

Sink heart and voice opprest.
I know not, oli! I know not

What joys await me there;
What radiancy of glory,

Wbat bliss beyond comparc. 2 They stan:1, those halls of Zion,

All jubilant with song,
And bright with many an angel,

And all the martyr throng.
There is the throne of David,

And there, from toil released,
The shout of them that triu.npli,

The song of them that feast. 3 And they, who with their Leader,

Ilave conquerel in the fight;
Forever, and forever,

Are clad in robes of white.
Oh, land that seest no sorrow !

Oh, state that fear'st no strife!
Oh, royal land of flowers !

Oh, realm and home of life! 4 Oh, sweet and blessed country! The home of God's elect!.

Oh, sweet and blessed country,

That eager hearts expect ! Jesus, in mercy bring us

To that dear land of rest; Who art, with God the Father,

And Spirit, ever blest.

HYMN 277.

2 Oh one, oh only mansion !

Oh Paradise of joy!
Where tears are ever banished,

And smiles have no alloy ;
Thou hast no shores, fair ocean !

Thou hast no time, bright day ! Dear fountain of refreshment

To pilgrims far away.
3 Oh, sweet and blessed countrs,

The home of God's elect!
Oh, sweet and blessed country,

That eager bearts expect !
Jesus, in mercy bring us

To that dear land of rest;
Who art, with God the Father,

And Spirit, ever blest.
