3. Though your heart be made of steel,

Your forehead lined with brass,
God at length will make you feel;

He will not let you pass.
Sinners then in vain will call,

Though they now despise His grace,
“ Rocks and mountains, on us fall,

And hide us from His face."

1. To-day the Saviour calls

Ye wand'rers home:
O, ye benighted souls

Why longer roam ?
2. To-day the Saviour calls;

0, hear Him now;
Within these sacred walls

To Jesus bow.
3. To-day the Saviour calls;

For refuge fly;
The storm of justice falls,

And death is nigh.
4. The Spirit calls to-day;

Yield to His power;
O, grieve Him not away:
'Tis mercy's hour.

SACRED SONGS.

6s & 7s.
1. Oh, there will be mourning

Before the judgment-seat,
When this world is burning,
Beneath Jehovah's feet.
Friends and kindred there will part,

Will part to meet no more;
Wrath will sink the rebel's heart,

While saints on high adore.
O, there will be mourning

Before the judgment seat!

[ocr errors]

2. O, there will be mourning

Before the judgment seat!
When the trumpet's warning
The sinner's ear shall greet !

Friends and kindred, etc. 3. O, there will be mourning

Before the judgment seat!
When, from dust returning,
The lost their doom shall meet.

Friends and kindred, etc. 4. O, there will be mourning

Before the judgment seat!
Justice, ever frowning,
Shall seal the sinner's fate.

Friends and kindred, eta.

1. HARK! those happy voices, saying,

“ Yet there's room:

Sinner, come
Heaven's call obeying."
2. Now the feast is spread before thee,

Wait no more,

Grace implore,
Peace shall then come'o'er thee.
3. Bless the Lord of life forever,

O my soul,

Bountiful,
Infinite His favor.
4. Bless the Lord of Thy salvation,

Who in love

From above,
Heard thy supplication.
5. Bless the Lord of earth and heaven

Through His blood

That freely flowed,
Are thy sins forgiven.

6. Bless the Lord, whose love abounding,

Fills thy days

With joy and praise,
Songs of triumph sounding.

[blocks in formation]

1. Saw ye my Saviour, saw ye my Saviour,

Saw ye my Saviour and God ?
0! He died on Calvary,
To atone for you and me,

And to purchase our pardon with blood. 2. He was extended, He was extended,

Painfully nailed to the cross;
Here He bowed His head and died,
Thus
my

Lord was crucified,
To atone for a world that was lost.
3. Darkness prevailed, darkness prevailed,

Darkness prevailed o'er the land,
And the sun refused to shine,
When His majesty divine

Was derided, insulted, and slain. 4. Hail, mighty Saviour ! Hail mighty Saviour,

Prince, and the author of peace !
O! He burst the bars of death,
And, triumphant from the earth,

He ascended to mansions of bliss.
5. There interceding, there interceding,

Pleading that sinners may live,
Crying, “ Father, I have died,
O, behold My hands and side,

O, forgive them, I pray Thee, forgive."
6. “I will forgive them-I will forgive them

When they repent and believe,
Let them how return to Thee,
And be reconciled to Me,
And salvation they all shall receive.

C. P. M. 1. O Thou that hear'st the

prayer

of faith,
Wilt thou not save a soul from death,

That casts itself on Thee :
I have no refuge of my own,
But fly to what my God hath done,

And suffered one for all.
2. Slain in the guilty sinner's stead,
His spotless righteousness I plead,

And his availing blood;
That righteousness my robe shall be,
That merit shall atone for me,

And bring me near to God.
3. Then save me from eternal death,
The spirit of adoption breathe,

His consolations send;
By Him some word of life impart,
And sweetly whisper to my heart-

“Thy Maker is thy Friend."
4. The king of terrors then would be
A welcome messenger to me,

To bid me come away :
Unclogged by earth, or earthly things,
I'd mount, I'd fly, with eager wings,
To everlasting day.

C. P. M. 1. My days, my weeks, my months, my years, Fly rapid as the whirling spheres

Around the steady pole;
Time, like the tide, its motion keeps,
And I must launch through endless deeps,

Where endless ages roll.
2. The grave is near the cradle seen,
How swift the moments pass between!

And whisper as they fly-
Unthinking man, remember this,
Thou, 'midst thy sublunary bliss,

Must groan, and gasp, and die!

3. But shall my soul be then extinct,
And cease to be, or cease to think?

Great God ! it can not be;
Thou! my immortal, can not die,
What wilt thou do, or whither fly,

When death shall set thee free?
4. My soul, attend the solemn call,
Thine earthly tent must quickly fall,

And thou must take thy flight
Beyond the vast ethereal blue,
To love and sing as angels do,

Or sink in endless night.

C. P. M.
1. What is the world ?- —a wildering maze
Whose sin hath track'd ten thousand ways

Her victims to ensnare;
All broad and winding, and aslope,
All tempting with perfidious hope,

All ending in despair.
2. Millions of pilgrims throng these roads,
Bearing their baubles or their loads

Down to eternal night;
One only path that never bends,
Narrow, and rough, and steep, ascends

From darkness into light.
3. Is there no guide to show that path?
The Bible! He alone that hath

The Bible need not stray ;
But he who hath and will not give
The light of life to all that live,

Himself shall lose the way. MONTGOMERY

396.

C. P. M.
1. BEYOND where Cedron's waters flow,
Behold the suffering Saviour go

To sad Gethsemane;
His countenance is all divine,
Yet grief appears in every line.
