But let us hasten to the day
Which shall our flesh restore;
"Be ye all of one mind."
BLEST be the tie that binds
Our hearts in Christian love!
Before our Father's throne,
We share our mutual woes,
But soon, from toil and pain,
And perfect love and friendship reign,
To all eternity!
.. my people
thy God, my God." D.7's.
1 PEOPLE of the living God!
I have sought the world around,-
Lonely I no longer roam,
Like the cloud, the wind, the wave;
8 Tell me not of gain, or loss,
Ease, enjoyment, pomp, and power;-
Follow me!"-I know Thy voice,
"The wise took oil in their vessels."
To keep the lamp alive,
With oil we fill the bowl;
Beware of Peter's word;
Man's wisdom is to seek
Retreat beneath His wings,
In Jesus is our store;
"How amiable are Thy Tabernacles."
HOW honoured, how dear,
That sacred abode
My wearied soul faints,
They return to their rest;
From them fondly learning,
My soul would take wing;
My God and my King!
Thou Hearer of prayer;
Still grant me a place
To the courts of Thy grace;
One day so employed,
By worldlings enjoyed.
Keeping post at Thy gate,
In chamber of state:
Outshines, with Thy smiles,
The world with its wiles,
The Lord is a Shield;
With glory is sealed.
He succours the just;
Who make Him their trust.
Rom. xii. l.
Draw out our souls in pure desire ;
Baptise us with Thy Spirit's fire. 2 On Thy redeeming name we call,
Poor and unworthy though we be;
Let each Thy full salvation see, 3 Our souls and bodies we resign
To fear and follow Thy commands:
Accept the service of our hands!
May we Thy blesséd will obey;
5 Yet, Lord, for us a resting-place,
"Yield yourselves unto God."
LORD, in the strength of grace,
Thy ransomed servant, I
"He giveth power to the faint."
2 True, 'tis a strait and thorny road,
AWAKE, our souls; away, our fears;
Let every trembling thought be gone;
4 From Thee, the overflowing spring,
3 Thee, mighty God, whose matchless power
And firm endures, while endless years
5 Swift as an eagle cuts the air,
We'll mount aloft to Thine abode:
"The fire shall ever be burning."
THOU who camest from above,
There let it, for Thy glory, burn,
In humble prayer, and fervent praise. ? Jesus, confirm my heart's desire
To think, and speak, and work for Theo;
And make the sacrifice complete. 370
"The Lord is my portion."
This joy, to call Thee mine;
To taste Thy love divine.
No relish can afford;
To serve and please the Lord.
To Thee my spirit flies; !
My cheerful hope relies.
My soul in safety keeps :
"Hinder me not."
D. 2-8's &
He brings within these sacred walls
To learn His holy truth.
We wish to teach his fear:
