4. From strife of tongues, and bitter words,

My spirit flies to Thee;
Joy to

my heart the thought affords-
My Saviour died for me.
5. And when Thy awful voice commands

This body to decay,
And life, in its last lingering sands,

Is ebbing fast away-
6. Then, though it be in accents weak,

My voice shall call on Thee,
And ask for strength in death to speak-

“My Saviour died for me."

1. GREAT Shepherd of Thy people, hear;

Thy presence now display ;
As Thou hast given a place for prayer,

So give us hearts to pray.
2. Show us some token of Thy love,

Our feeble hope to raise;
And pour Thy blessing from above,

That we may render praise.
3. Within these walls let holy peace,

And love and concord dwell ;
Here give the troubled conscience ease,

The wounded spirit heal.
4. The hearing ear, the watchful eye,

The contrite heart bestow :
And shine upon us from on high,

To make our graces grow.
5. May we in faith receive Thy word,

În faith address our prayers;
And in the presence of the Lord

Unbosom all our cares.

6. And may Thy Gospel's joyful sound,

Enforced by grace divine,
Awaken many sinners round,

And bend their wills to Thine.


Doxology. C. M.
1. Have mercy on us, God Most High!

Have mercy upon me,
Have mercy on us worms of earth,

Most Holy Trinity!
2. Most ancient of all mysteries !

Before Thy throne we lie;
Have mercy now, most merciful,

Most Holy Trinity!

1. My faith looks up to Thee,
Thou Lamb of Calvary,

Saviour divine:
Now hear me while I

Take all my guilt away;
O let me from this day

Be wholly Thine.
2. May Thy rich grace impart
Strength to my fainting heart,

My zeal inspire;
As Thou hast died for me,

may my love to Thee,
Pure, warm, and changeless be-

A living fire.
3. While life's dark maze I tread,
And griefs around me spread,

Be Thou my guide ;
Bid darkness turn to day,
Wipe sorrow's tears away,
Nor let me ever stray
From Thee aside.

4. When ends life's transient dream,
When death's cold, sullen stream

Shall o'er me roll;
Blest Saviour, then, in love,
Fear and distress remove;
O bear me safe above-

A ransomed soul.



6s & As.

1. Lowly and solemn be
Thy children's cry to Thee,

Father Divine;
A hymn of suppliant breath,
Owning that life and death

Alike are Thine!

2. O Father, in that hour,
When earth all helping power

Shall disavow-
When spear, and shield, and

In faintness are cast down-

Sustain us, Thou !
3. By Him who bowed to take
The death-cup for our sake,

The thorn, the rod—
From whom the last dismáy
Was not to pass away,

Aid us, O God! MRS. SIGOURNEY,

1. Come, all ye saints of God;
Wide through the earth abroad

Spread Jesus' fame;
Tell what His love has done;
Trust in His name alone;
Shout to His lofty throne,

“ Worthy the Lamb."

2. Hence, gloomy doubts and fears!
Dry up your mournful tears;

Swell the glad theme;
Praise ye our gracious King,
Strike each melodious string;
Join heart and voice to sing,

“Worthy the Lamb."
3. Hark! how the choirs above,
Filled with the Saviour's love,

Dwell on His name!
There, too, may we be found,
With light and glory crowned,
While all the heavens resound,
“Worthy the Lamb."





1. Hail, sweetest, dearest tie, that binds

Our glowing hearts in one;
Hail, sacred hope ! that tunes our minds

To harmony divine.
2. What though the northern wintry blast

Shall howl around our cot;
What though beneath an eastern sun

Be cast our distant lot;
3. No lingering look, no parting sigh,

Our future meeting knows;
There friendship beams from every eye,

And love immortal glows.
4. O sacred hope! O blissful hope !

Which Jesus' grace has given-
The hope, when days and years are past,

We all shall meet in heaven. SUTTON,



C. M.
1. Let saints below in concert sing

With those to glory gone :
For all the servants of our King,

In earth and heaven are one.

2. One family, we dwell in Him,

One church above, beneath,
Though now divided by the stream,

The narrow stream of death :

3. One army of the living God,

To his command we bow;
Part of the host have crossed the flood,

And part are crossing now.
4. Some to their everlasting home

This solemn moment fly;
And we are to the margin come,

And soon expect to die.
5. Oh that we now might see our Guide!

O that the word were given!
Come, blessed Lord! the waves divide,

And land us all in heaven.

1. Not to the terrors of the Lord,

The tempest, fire, and smoke
Not to the thunder of that word

Which God on Sinai spoke-
2. But we are come to Sion's hill,

The city of our God,
Where milder words declare His will,

And spread His love abroad.

3. Behold the innumerable host

Of angels clothed in light!
Behold the spirits of the just,

Whose faith is turned to sight!
4. Behold the blest assembly there,

Whose names are writ in heaven!
And God, the Judge of all, declare

Their vilest sins forgiven!
