3 Tell me the Story softly,

With earnest tones and grave ;
Remember! I'm the sinner

Whom Jesus came to save.
Tell me that Story always,
If
you

would really be,
In any time of trouble,

A comforter to me.
4. Tell me the same Old Story:
When

you

have cause to fear
That this world's empty glory

Is costing me too dear.
Yes, and when that world's glory

Is dawning on my soul,
Tell me the Old, Old Story:

“Christ Jesus makes thee whole."

15

Stand up for Jesus.
“I will declare what He hath done for my soul.”--PSALM Ixvi. 16.

Tune-Sacred Songs and Solos, No. 15.
STAND up! stand up for Jesus !

.
Ye soldiers of the cross;
Lift high His royal banner,

It must not suffer loss;
From victory unto victory

His army shall He lead,
Till every foe is vanquished,

And Christ is Lord indeed.
2 Stand up ! stand up for Jesus !

The trumpet call obey;
Forth to the mighty conflict

In this His glorious day!
Ye that are men, now serve Him

Against unnumbered foes;
Let courage rise with danger,

And strength to strength oppose.

3 Stand up! stand up for Jesus !

Stand in His strength alone;
The arm of flesh will fail you-

Ye dare not trust your own :
Put on the gospel armour,

And, watching unto prayer,
Where duty calls, or danger,

Be never wanting there.
4 Stand up! stand up for Jesus !

The strife will not be long;
This day the noise of battle,
The next the victor's

song:
[o him that overcometh

A crown of life shall be ;
He with the King of glory

Shall reign eternally.

Come to the Saviour.

"Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands.”—Psalm lxvi. 1.

Tune-Sacred Songs and Solos, No. 16.
COME
OME to the Saviour, make no delay;

Here in His Word He has shown us the way
Here in our midst He's standing to-day,

Tenderly saying, “Come!”

Joyful, joyful, will the meeting be,
When from sin our hearts are pure and free:
And we shall gather, Saviour, with Thee,

In our eternal home.
2 “Suffer the children ! " Oh, hear His voice!

Let every heart leap forth and rejoice;
And let us freely make Him our choice:

Do not delay, but come.
3 Think once again, He's with us to-day;

Heed now His blest command, and obey ;
Hear now His accents tenderly say,

“Will

you, my children, come?"

WHEN He cometh, when He cometh,

“And they shall be Mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I

make up My jewels.”--MALACHI iii. 17.
Tune--Sacred Songs and Solos, No. 17.

,
To make up His jewels,
All His jewels, precious jewels,

His loved and His own.
Like the stars of the morning, His bright crown adorning,
They shall shine in their beauty, bright gems for His crown.
2 He will gather, He will gather

The gems for His kingdom ;
All the pure ones, all the bright ones,

His loved and His own.
3 Little children, little children,

Who love their Redeemer,
Are the jewels, precious jewels,
His loved and His own.

“ I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and whe

go

Tune -Sacred Songs and Solos, No. 18.
HAI

ARK the voice of Jesus crying,—

“Who will go and work to-day?
Fields are white, and harvest waiting;

Who will bear the sheaves away?
Loud and strong the Master calleth,

Rich reward He offers thee;
Who will answel, gladly saying ?-

“Here am i; send me, send me !"
you cannot cross the ocean,

And the heathen lands explore,
You can find the heathen nearer,

You can help them at your door.

2 If

If

If you cannot give your thousands,

You can give the widow's mite ;
And the least you do for Jesus

Will be precious in His sight. 3. If you cannot speak like angels,

If

you cannot preach like Paul,
You can tell the love of Jesus,

You can say He died for all.
If

you cannot rouse the wicked

With the Judgment's dread alarms,
You can lead the little children

To the Saviour's waiting arms. 4 you cannot be the watchman

Standing high on Zion's wall,
Pointing out the path to heaven,

Offering life and peace to all;
With your prayers and with your bounties

You can do what heaven demands;
You can be like faithful Aaron,

Holding up the prophet's hands. 5 If, among the older people, You may not be

apt to teach ; Feed my lambs,” said Christ our Shepherd,

“ Place the food within their reach.” And it may be that the children

You have led with trembling hand, Will be found among your jewels,

When you reach the better land. 6 Let none hear you idly saying

“There is nothing I can do," While the souls of men are dying,

And the Master calls for you. Take the task He gives you gladly,

Let His work your pleasure be; Answer quickly when He calleth,

“ Here am I ; send me, send me!

19 Knocking! Knocking! Who is There ?

"Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any man hear My voice and open the
door, I will come in to him and will sup with him, and he with Me.”—Rev. iii. 20.

Tune-Sacred Songs and Solos, No. 19.
K
NOCKING! knocking! who is there?

Waiting, waiting, oh, how fair !
'Tis a Pilgrim, strange and kingly,

Never such was seen before ;
Ah, my soul, for such a wonder

Wilt thou not undo the door?
2 Knocking! knocking! still He's there ;

Waiting, waiting, wondrous fair!
But the door is hard to open,

For the weeds and ivy-vine,
With their dark and clinging tendrils,

Ever round the hinges twine.
3 Knocking! knocking !—what, still there !

Waiting, waiting, grand and fair !
Yes, the piercéd hand still knocketh,

And beneath the crowned hair
Beam the patient eyes, so tender,

Of thy. Saviour waiting there.

WHAT

21

“He heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth.”—MARK X. 47.

Tune-Sacred Songs and Solos, No. 20.
THAT means this eager, anxious throng,

Which moves with busy haste along-
These wondrous gatherings day by day?
What means this strange commotion, pray?
In accents hushed the throng reply,

“ Jesus of Nazareth passeth by."
2 Who is this Jesus? Why should He

The city move so mightily?
