Lord, may our union form a part
"The Lord will bless His people with peace." PSALM XXix. 11. D.S.M.
BLEST are the sons of peace,
Whose hearts and hopes are one;
Where zeal and friendship meet;
2 Thus, when on Aaron's head,
"Come in thou blessed of the Lord.
1 COME in thou blessed of the Lord!
Stranger nor foe art thou:
We welcome thee with warm accord,
2 The hand of fellowship, the heart
Leaving the world, thou dost but part
8 In weal or woe, in joy or care,
Christians their mutual burdens bear,
4 Come with us, we will do thee good,
Stand but in Him, as those have stood,
6 And, when, by turns, we pass away,-
May each, translated into day,
Be lost and found in Him
“Receive ye one another."
KINDRED in Christ, for His dear sake,
The joys which only He can give.
Send His good Spirit from above;
And cause our hearts to burn with love, 3 Forgotten be each worldly theme,
When Christians meet together thus;
And what He's doing for us now. 6 Thus, as the moments pass away,
We'll love, and wonder, and adore;
" Ye serve the Lord Christ."
8-9's. 1 DEAR Jesus, whose servants we are,
Look down on our labour of love;
To walk where Thy footsteps we see ; 2 Give hands that shall gladly unite
In all Thou hast called us to do;
And so be eternally blest. 356
“Our own God shall bless us."
With Thy sanctifying power,
2 Holy Ghost, descend and bring
3 Bless our youthful charge! impart
6 Make us faithful to the end,
LET party names no more
The Christian world o'erspread;
Among the saints on earth,
Let envy, child of hell,
Those should in strictest friendship dwell
Thus will the church below
Where streams of pleasure ever flow,
"The whole body fitly joined together."
ORD, from whom all blessings flow,
2 Move, and actuate, and guide;
Touched with kindest sympathy;
"Made like unto the Son of God."
1 WHAT grace, O Lord, and beauty shone
Around Thy steps below!
For ever, on Thy burdened heart,
3 Thy foes might hate, despise, revile,-
Unwearied in forgiveness still,
4 Oh! give us hearts to love like Thee,-
Far more for other's sins, than all
5 One with Thyself, may every eye
That gentleness and grace that spring
"I. will not forsake them."
S the sun's enlivening eye
Shines on every place the same,
To the souls that love His name.
2 When they move at duty's call,
He is with them by the way;
Those who go, and those who stay.
Nothing can their souls confine;
And in sweet communion join.
Let us then ourselves commend
Of our ever-present Friend.
Tender Shepherd of Thy sheep!
All our souls in safety keep.
Sweeten every cross and pain;
Here to meet in peace again.
Ebenezers shall be reared
"The unity of the faith."
EPH. iv. 13.
We still are one in heart.
Where He appoints we go;
And show His praise below.
And nothing know beside?
But Jesus crucified,
The same in mind and heart;
