3 "Go work in My vineyard!" oh, work while 'tis day!
The bright hours of sunshine are hastening away,
And night's gloomy shadows are gathering fast;
Then the time for our labour will ever be past.
Begin in the morning and toil all the day;
Thy strength I'll supply, and thy wages I'll
And blessed, thrice blessed, the diligent few
Who finish the labour I've given them to do.

Bury thy Soyyow.

pay:

“They shall obtain joy and gladness; and sorrow and sighing shall flee away."-ISAIAH XXXV. 10.

Tune-Sacred Songs and Solos, No. 5.

O bury thy sorrow, the world hath its share;

Go

Go bury it deeply, go hide it with care.
Go think of it calmly, when curtained by night;
Go tell it to Jesus, and all will be right.

2 Go tell it to Jesus, He knoweth thy grief;
Go tell it to Jesus, He'll send thee relief:
Go gather the sunshine He sheds on the way;
He'll lighten thy burden-go, weary one, pray.

3 Hearts growing a-weary with heavier woe

Now droop 'mid the darkness-go, comfort them, go!
Go bury thy sorrow, let others be blest;

Go give them the sunshine, tell Jesus the rest.

In the Presence of the King.*

"In Thy presence is fulness of joy; at Thy right hand there are plea-
sures for evermore."-PSALM XVI. II.

H to be over yonder,

OH

In that bright land of wonder,

Where the angel voices mingle, and the angel harps do ring; * By special permission. From the Book of Poems, by Miss ARMSTRONG, entitled, "The King in His Beauty."

To be free from care and sorrow,
And the anxious dread to-morrow,

To rest in light and sunshine in the presence of the King!

Oh to be over yonder!

My longing heart grows fonder

Of looking to the far-off east, to see the day-star bring
Some tidings of the awaking,

Of the cloudless, pure day breaking :

My heart is yearning--yearning for the coming of the King.

Oh to be over yonder!

Alas! I sigh and ponder

Why clings my poor weak heart to any earthly thing?
Each tie of earth must sever,

And pass away for ever:

There's no more separation in the presence of the King.

Oh, when shall I be dwelling
Where angel voices, swelling

In triumphant hallelujahs, make the vaulted heavens ring?—
Where the pearly gates are gleaming,

And the Morning Star is beaming?
Oh, when shall I be yonder in the presence of the King?

Oh, when shall I be yonder?
The longing growing stronger

To join in all the praises the redeemed ones do sing,
Within those heavenly places,

Where the angels veil their faces

In awe and adoration in the presence of the King.

Oh, I shall soon be yonder,

All lonely as I wander,

[wing.

Waiting for the welcome summons, longing for the bird's fleet Though the midnight may be dreary,

And the way be long and weary,

There's no more shadow yonder in the presence of the King.

Daniel's Band.

"But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king's meat, nor with the wine which he drank.' "So Daniel was taken up out of the den, and no manner of hurt was found upon him, because he believed in his God.”—DAN. i. 8; vi. 23. Tune-Sacred Songs and Solos, No. 7. TANDING by a purpose true,

Heeding God's command,
Honour them, the faithful few!

All hail to Daniel's Band!

Dare to be a Daniel! dare to stand alone!
Dare to have a purpose firm ! dare to make it known!
2 Many mighty men are lost,
Daring not to stand,

Who for God had been a host,
By joining Daniel's Band.

3 Many giants, great and tall,
Stalking through the land,
Headlong to the earth would fall,
If met by Daniel's Band!

4 Hold the gospel banner high!
On to victory grand !

Satan and his host defy,

And shout for Daniel's Band!

"He giveth more grace."-JAMES iv. 6.
Tune-Sacred Songs and Solos, No. 8.

HAVE you on the Lord believed?
Still there's more to follow;

Of His grace have you received?
Still there's more to follow;
Oh, the grace the Father shows!
Still there's more to follow!
Freely He His grace bestows,
Still there's more to follow.

More and more, more and more, Always more to follow;
Oh, His matchless, boundless love! Still there's more to follow.

Still there's more to follow;

Still there's more to follow;
Falling like the gentle shower?
Still there's more to follow;
Oh, the power the Spirit shows!
Still there's more to follow;
Freely He His power bestows!
Still there's more to follow.

The Sweet By and By.

"Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him."-1 Cor. ii. 9.

Tune-Sacred Songs and Solos, No. 9.

'HERE'S a land that is fairer than day,

THER

And by faith we can see it afar,

For the Father waits over the way,

To prepare us a dwelling-place there.
In the sweet by-and-by,

We shall meet on that beautiful shore;
In the sweet by-and-by,

We shall meet on that beautiful shore.

2 We shall sing on that beautiful shore
The melodious songs of the blest;
And our spirits shall sorrow no more-
Not a sigh for the blessing of rest.

3 To our bountiful Father above

We will offer the tribute of praise,
For the glorious gift of His love,

And the blessings that hallow our days.
