Jesus Christ is Passing By.
"They told him that Jesus of Nazareth passeth by."- LUKE Xviii. 12.
ESUS Christ is passing by, Sinner, lift to Him thine eye;
3 Lo! He stands and calls to thee, Rise, and tell Him all thy need;
"What wilt thou then have of Me?" Rise-He calleth thee indeed.
4 "Lord, I would Thy mercy see; Lord, reveal Thy love to me; Let it penetrate my soul, All my heart and life control."
5 Oh, how sweet! the touch of power Comes-it is salvation's hour; Jesus gives from guilt release-"Faith hath saved thee; go in peace!"
"The redeemed of the Lord shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head.”—ISAIAH li. II.

ET us sing as we journey along day by day,
As we tread slowly on in our heavenward way;
Let us sing, let us sing, as on earth here we roam,
2 When we pause by the wayside, all weary and faint,
3 As the wanderer sings in some far-away land,
"Who may abide the day of His coming? and who shall stand when He appeareth."-MALACHI iii. 2.
Tune-Sacred Songs and Solos, No. 264.
View Him seated on His throne!
Stand and hear thine awful doom!
Trumpets call thee, Stand and hear thine awful doom!
2 Lo, the last long separation!
As the cleaving crowds divide;
Lord of mercy! How shall I that day abide?
Golden moments, When I felt His Spirit move
Taking the Cross.
"If any man will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and
follow Me."-MATT. xvi. 24.
"Come, take up the cross, and follow Me."-MARK X. 21.
JESUS, I my cross have taken,
All to leave and follow Thee:
Naked, poor, despised, forsaken,
All I've sought, or hoped, or known,
God and heaven are still my own.
Foes may hate, and friends may scorn me―
The Pence of God.
"These things I have spoken unto you, that in Me ye might have peace."
JOHN XVI. 33.
"That, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep.”
ROM. xiii. II.
Tune-Sacred Songs and Solos, No. 267.
IME is earnest, passing by;
Death is earnest, drawing nigh;
Sinner, wilt thou trifling be?
2 Life is earnest; when 'tis o'er,
Wilt thou never serious be?
3 God is earnest; kneel and pray
Ere be set His Judgment throne-
4 Oh, be earnest ! death is near;
How Much Owest Thou?
"Ye are not your own; for ye are bought with a price."-1 COR, xvi, 19, 20. Tune-Sacred Songs and Solos, No. 268.
O child of God and heir of heaven,
All the Way long it is Jesus.
"I have set the Lord always before me."-Ps. xvi. 8.
I'M on my journey up Zion's hill,
The way grows brighter and brighter still,
Jesus, Jesus, why, all the way 'long it is Jesus.
2 And oh, how happy the pilgrim's lot,
He has a comfort the world has not,
3 Let storm-clouds gather and troubles rise,
He seeks a city with cloudless skies,
4 At home the pilgrims together will sing,
We'll make the heavenly mansions ring,
O Saviour, I am Blind!
"The Lord openeth the eyes of the blind."-Ps. cxlvi. 8.
SAVIOUR, I am blind! Lead Thou my way;
E'en night is only darker day.
Oh, I am blind; Dear Saviour, I am blind!
My heart would turn to Thy dear voice,
My hungered heart loathes earthly food,
Thou hast them in Thy blessed store.
Go Die is Gain.
"To me to live is Christ, and to die is gain."-PHILIPPIANS i. 21. Tune-Sacred Songs and Solos, No. 271.
die is gain," All earthly cares forsaking;
2 "To die is gain," My weary soul home bringing;
"To die is gain," From strife and sin to sever,
