2. Lord, from Thine inmost glory send,
Within these courts to bide,
peace that dwelleth without end,
Serenely by Thy side!
Be strengthened as they pray.
And pure devotion rise,
Of earth-born passion dies.
1. The Saviour said, “ Yet one thing more,
If thou would'st perfect be,
And come and follow me.
Those sacred words hath said;
Laid on a young man's head.
The unseen Christ shall move,
lean on Him and say,
To make the scene more fair;
Of pain and midnight prayer.
Like the beloved John,
ALTERED FROM LONGFELLOW.
Our steps, whate'er betide,
And evil turn aside.
Sent by the King of kings,
And shade us with their wings.
The ministerial choir
And form our wall of fire.
For us they gladly do,
And safo escort us through.
They guard the dying breast,
And sing our souls to rest.
On outstretched wings they bear,
And leave us ever there. C. WESLEY.
78 & 6s.
From India's coral strand,
Roll down their golden sand;
From many a palmy plain,
Their land from error's chain.
2. What though the spicy breezes
Blow soft o'er Ceylon's isle;
And only man is vile;
The gifts of God are strown;
Bows down to wood and stone!
With wisdom from on high,
The lamp of life deny ?
The joyful sound proclaim,
Has learned Messiah's name.
And you, ye waters, roll,
It spreads from pole to pole;
The Lamb for sinners slain,
In bliss returns to reign.
78 & 6s.
In every land unfurl'd;
Re-echoed through the world;
Till every tribe and tongue,
And join the happy throng.
O Jesus, King of kings!
Each ransomed captive sings :
The isles for Thee are waiting,
The deserts learn Thy praise,
The song responsive raise.
Salvation through Immanuel's name;
And plant the rose of Sharon there. 2. He'll shield you with a wall of fire,
With flaming zeal your breasts inspire;
And hush the tempest into peace.
Then we shall meet to part no more ;
PRATT'S COLL. 946.
From dust, and darkness, and the dead !
And gird thee with thy Saviour's strength! 2. Put all thy beauteous garments on,
And let thy excellence be known;
The world thy glories shall confess. 3. No more shall foes unclean invade,
And fill thy hallowed walls with dread;
Their victory and thy sorrows boast,
His hand thy ruins shall repair;
In all Thy plenitude of grace,
Descend on our apostate race.
To preach the reconciling word;
and unction from above, Where'er the joyful sound is heard. 3. Be darkness, at Thy coming, light;
Confusion-order, in Thy path;
Bid mercy triumph over wrath. 4. Baptize the nations; far and nigh
The triumphs of the cross record;
Till every kindred call Him Lord. 5. O Spirit of the Lord ! prepare
All the round earth her God to meet,
Till hearts of stone begin to beat.
1. Arm of the Lord! awake, awake!
Put on Thy strength! the nations shake!
Triumphs of mercy wrought by Thee. 2. Say to the heathen, from Thy throne
“ I am Jehovah—God alone!"
And cast their altars to the ground. 3. Almighty God! Thy grace proclaim
In every land, of every name ;
