6 I need Thee, precious Jesus !
I need Thee day by day,
To lead me on my way.
To teach me what I am:
To point me to the Lamb.
And hope to see Thee soon,
And seated on Thy throne;
My joy shall ever be
“Deliver us from evil."
Of jealous godly fear ;
A pain to feel it near.
No more Thy goodness grieve,-
The filial awe, the fleshy heart,
O God, my conscience make!
And keep it still awake.
That moment, Lord, reprove :
Lest I should grieve Thy love.
My well-instructed soul,
“ Become as little children." 123
MATT. xviii. 3. 1
Make me teachable and mild,
From distrust and envy free,
Pleased with all that pleases Thee. 2 What Thou shalt to-day provide,
Let me as a child receive;
Why should I the burden bear ? 3 As a little child relies
On a care beyond his own;
As my Father, Guard, and Guide.
Safe from dangers, free from fears,
"Return unto Me, for I have redeemed Thee.” 124 ISAIAH xliv. 22.
And seek an injured Father's face :
Were kindled by reclaiming grace.
And seek a Father's melting heart;
Whose hand can heal thy inward smart.
He heard thy deep repentant sigh;
When no intruding ear was nigh.
Thy Saviour bids thy spirit live :
"We have an Advocate with the Father." 125 1 JOHN ii. 1.

THOU, the contrite sinners' Friend,
Who, loving, lov'st them to the endi
That Thou wilt plead for me,
2 When, weary in the Christian race,
Far off appears my resting-place,
Then, Saviour, plead for me,
3 When I have erred and gone astray,
Afar from Thine and wisdom's way,
Still, Saviour, plead for me.
Strives from Thy cross to loose my hold,
And plead, o plead for me.
Mispel my anguish, guilt, and fear,
Pleading in Heaven for me.
"That Rock was Christ." 126
1 COR. X. 4.
Let me hide myself in Theo :
Save from wrath, and make me pure 2 Not the labour of my hands
Can fulfil Thy law's demands.
Thou must save, and Thou alone.
Simply to Thy cross I cling :
Wash me, Saviour, or I die i
When my eyes shall close in death,

LAY my sins on Jesus,
The spotless Lamb of God!
From the accurséd load.
To wash my crimson stains
Till not a spot remains.
All fulness dwells in Him:
He doth my soul redeem.
My burdens and my cares;
He all my sorrow shares.
This weary soul of mine;
I on His breast recline.
Immanuel, Christ, the Lord!
His name abroad is poured,
Meek, loving, holy, mild;
The Father's holy child ;
Amid the heavenly throng,
To learn the angels' song. 128 "To teach by the sea side."
MARK Iv. 1.
here, I see
And, like the tides, in constant motion.
Something, O Lord, that leads to Thee;
THE LORD'S DAY.
.. rested the Sabbath day."
LUKE Xxiii. 56.
NOTHER six days' work is done,
Another Sabbath is begun;
Improve the day thy God hath blest.
So sweet a rest for wearied minds;
And gives this day the food of seven!
As grateful incense to the skies!
Which none but he that feels it knows. 4 This heavenly calm within the breast
Is the dear pledge of glorious rest,
The end of cares-the end of pains. 5 In holy duties, let the day,
In holy pleasures pass away:
"The rest of the holy Sabbath."
EXOD. xvi. 23.
Sweet repose from earthly care ;
Let our lips His glory tell.
When we hear Thy holy word,
