2 Inspire our hearts with fervent zeal,
O God of love, immortal King!
And youthful hearts to Jesus bring.
When every youthful heart and voice
"Teach us what we shall say 341
JOB XXXVII, 19.
To where our expectation lles :
2 Tis Thine alone to truly bless,
To crown our efforts with success,
To guide through life, and lead to heaven. 3 Teach us to take our proper seat,
Disciples at the Saviour's feet :
4 And when, a few more sabbaths gone,
Our work and labour shall be done,
"Thy servants are shepherds." 342

2 With plenteous grace our hearts prepare,
To execute Thy will ;
And faithfulness and skill.

joyful in their King." PSALM cxlix, 2.
C.M. 1 O
FOR a shout of sacred joy,
To God, the sovereign King!
And hymns of triumph sing.
His heavenly guards around
With trumpet's joyful sound.
Let children learn their strains ;
O'er all the earth He reigns !
"His dominion .. from sea even to sea." 345 ZECH, IX, 10.

With every morning sacrifice.
Dwell on His love with sweetest song ;
And all the sons of want are blest.
Death and the curse are known no more ;
Let every creature rise and bring
To spread the gospel's rays;
The temple of Thy praise.
Armed with Thy Spirit's power;
And bless the saving hour.
In each regenerate heart;
And heavenly fruits impart.
Are in Thy word foretold :
This promised age of gold i
Unnumbered myriads cry;
Unnumbered choirs reply.
PSALM cxyii. i.
All ye lands, your voices raise :
Praise the Lord, for ever praise. 2 For His truth and mercy stand,
Past and present, and to be,
Like His own eternity.
Praise Him from the depths beneath;
"So will I watch over them."
Which gives our feeble plans success;
Our youthful charge at Jesus' feet.
With all the graces of His train;
To conquer youthful sinners' hearts.
When God the nations shall survey,
“Bless the Lord .. in all places."
There they behold Thy mercy-seat!
And every place is hallowed ground.
Inhabitest the humble mind;
And going, take Thee to their home.
Thy former mercies here renew;
The sweetness of Thy saving name.
To strengthen faith, and sweeten care;
And bring all heaven before our eyes.
We stretch the curtain and the cord;
And bless us with a large increase.
Nor short Thine arm, nor deaf Thine ear;

L.M. 1 " ", -
“Stretch forth the curtains of thy tent!" Such were the sacred prophct's words,
The prophet by Jehovah sento
And trusting in the promised grace,
To found a building to Thy praise.
Assist the work we now design;
The honour and the glory Thine.
To David's Son and Lord alone;
To Him-the precious Corner-stone. 5 And here, by pious teachers won
To love “the house where prayer is made,"
That sure Foundation Thou hast laid. 6 Thus bless Thy cause, Eternal King,
Throughout all time-in every place ;
Grace to the Head-stone-glorious grace. 351
"Keep the unity of the Spirit."
The heavens, with all their train,
In one mysterious chain.
His wisdom and His might;
One fellowship of mind,
Their bliss and glory find.
Thy statutes are their song ;
