2. All our works in Thee be wrought

Leveled at one common aim;
Every word and every thought

Purge in the refining flame;
Lead us through the paths of peace,
On to perfect holiness.

3. Let us altogether rise,

To Thy glorious life restored ;
Here regain our Paradise,

Here prepare to meet our Lord;
Here enjoy the earnest given;
Travel hand in hand to heaven.

C. WESLEY.

1. HARK!

my

soul ! it is the Lord;
'Tis thy Saviour-hear His word;
Jesus speaks, and speaks to thee,

"Say, poor sinner, lovest thou Me ?"
2 " I delivered thee when' bound,

And when bleeding, healed thy wound:
Sought thee wandering, set thee right

Turned. thy darkness into light.
3. 66 Can a woman's tender care

Cease toward the child she bare ?
Yes, she may forgetful be,

Yet will I remember thee.
4. “ Mine is an unchanging love,

Higher than the heights above;
Deeper than the depths beneath-

Free and faithful-strong as death.
5. “Thou nalt see My glory soon,

When the work of grace is done ;
Partner of My throne shalt be;
Say, poor sinner! lovest thou Me ?"

6. Lord ! it is my chief complaint,
That
my

love is weak and faint;
Yet I love Thee, and adore;-
Oh! for grace to love Thee more.

1. ABBA, Father, hear Thy child,

Late in Jesus reconciled;
Hear, and all the graces shower,
All the joy, and peace, and power;
All
my

Saviour asks above,
All the life and heaven of love.
2. Heavenly Father, Life divine,

Change my nature into Thine;
Move and spread throughout my soul,
Actuate and fill the whole :
Lord, I will not let Thee go

Till the blessing Thou bestow.
3. Holy Ghost, no more delay;

Come, and in Thy temple stay:
Now Thine in ward witness bear,
, ,
Sprinty of life, Thyself impart;
Rise eternal in

my

heart.

1. BLESSED are the sons of God;

They are bought with Jesus' blood;
They are ransomed from the grave;
Life eternal they shall have ;
With them numbered may we be,

Here, and in eternity.
2. They are justified by grace,

They enjoy the Saviour's peace;
All their sins are washed away ;
They shall stand in God's great day :
With them numbered may we be,
Here, and in eternity.

3. They are lights upon the earth

Children of a heavenly birth-
One with God, with Jesus one;
Glory is in them begun :
With them numbered may we be,
Here, and in eternity.

HUMPHRIES,

lls & 10s. 1. Come, ye disconsolate, where'er you languish,

Come, at the shrine of God fervently kneel; Here bring your wounded hearts, here tell your

anguish, Earth has no sorrow that Heaven can not heal. 2. Joy of the desolate, light of the straying,

Hope of the penitent, fadeless and pure!
Here speaks the Comforter, tenderly saying,

Earth has no sorrow that Heaven can not cure. 3. Here see the bread of life; see waters flowing

Forth from the throne of God, pure from above: Come to the feast of love; come, ever-knowing,

Earth has no sorrow but Heaven can remove.

1. WHEN the spark of life is waning,

Weep not for me;
When the languid eye is streaming,

Weep not for me;
When the feeble pulse is ceasing,
Start not at its swift decreasing,
'Tis the fettered soul's releasing-

Weep not for me!
2. When the pangs of death assail me,

Weep not for me;
Christ is mine, He can not fail me

Weep not for me:
Yet though sin and doubt endeavor
From His love my soul to sever,
Jesus is my strength forever :

Weep not for me!

1. THERE 's a Friend above all others

O how He loves !
His is love beyond a brother's—

O how He loves !
Earthly friends

may

fail and leave us, This day kind, the next bereave us, But this Friend will ne'er deceive us

O how He loves !
2. Blessed Jesus !-would'st thou know Him ?-

O how He loves !
Give thyself e'en this day to Him-

O how He loves !
Is it sin that pains and grieves thee ?
Doubts and trials do they tease thee?
Jesus can from all release thee

O how He loves !
3. Love this Friend who longs to save thee-

O how He loves !
Dost thou love? He will not leave thee-

O how He loves !
Think no more, then, of to-morrow,
Take His easy yoke and follow,
Jesus carries all thy sorrow-

O how He loves !
4. All thy sins shall be forgiven-

O how He loves !
Backward all thy foes be driven-

O how He loves !
Best of blessings He'll provide thee,
Naught but good shall e'er betide thee,
Safe to glory He will guide thee-

O how He loves!
5. Pause, my soul! adore and wonder-

O how He loves !
Naught can cleave this love asunder-

O how He loves!

Neither trial, nor temptation,
Doubt, nor fear, nor tribulation,
Can bereave us of salvation-

O how He loves !
6. Let us still this love be viewing-

O how He loves!
And, though faint, keep on pursuing-

O how He loves !
He will strengthen each endeavor,
And when passed o’er Jordan's river,
This shall be our song forever-

O how Ile loves !

C. P. M.
1. Oft when the waves of passion rise,
And storms of life conceal the skies,

And o'er the ocean sweep,
Tossed in the long tempestuous night,
We feel no ray of heavenly light

To cheer the lonely deep.
2. But lo! in our extremity,
The Saviour walking on the sea !

E’en now He passes by!
He silences our clamorous fear,
And mildly says, “Be of good cheer,

Be not afraid, 't is I.”
3. Ah, Lord ! if it be Thou indeed,
So near us in our time of need,

So good, so strorg to save;-
Speak the kind word of power to me,
Bid me believe, and come to Thee,

Swift-walking on the wave.
4. He bids me come! His voice I know,
And boldly on the waters go,

And brave the tempest's shock : O'er rude temptations now I bound; The billows yield a solid ground,

The wave is firm as rock!
