3. Help us turn from the cavil of words, to unite

Once again for the poor in defense of the right, Unappalled by the danger, the shame, or the pain, And counting each trial for truth as our gain.

WHITTIER.

1018.

12s, lls & 8s. 1. THE Prince of salvation in triumph is riding,

And glory attends Him along His bright way, The news of His grace on the breezes are gliding.

And nations are owning His sway. 2. Ride on in Thy greatness, Thou conquering Saviour,

Let thousands of thousands submit to Thy reign, Acknowledge Thy goodness, entreat for Thy favor,

And follow Thy glorious train, 3. Then loud shall ascend from each sanctified nation

The voice of thanksgiving, the chorus of praise, And heaven shall re echo the song of salvation,

In rich and melodious lays.

S. F, SMITH,

1019.

11s & 10s. 1. O, he whom Jesus loved has truly spoken!

The holier worship which God deigns to bless, Restores the lost, and heals the spirit broken,

And feeds the widow and the fatherless. 2. Then, brother man, fold to thy heart thy brother!

For where love dwells, the peace of God is there; To worship rightly is to love each other;

Each smile a hymn, each kindly deed a prayer. 3. Follow, with reverent steps, the great example

Of Him whose holy work was doing good; So shall the wide carth seem our Father's temple,

Each loving life a psalm of gratitude. 4. Thus shall all shackles fall; the stormy clangor

Of wild war-music o'er the earth shall cease; Love shall tread out the baleful fires of anger,

And in its ashes plant the tree of peace.

C. M.
1. When the great Judge, supreme and just,

Shall once inquire for blood,
The humble souls, that mourn in dust,

Shall find a faithful God.
2. He from the dreadful gates of death

Doth His own children raise ;
In Zion's gates with cheerful breath

They sing their Father's praise.
3. His foes shall fall with heedless feet

Into the pit they made;
And sinners perish in the net

That their own hands have spread.
4. Though saints to sore distress are brought,

And wait, and long complain,
Their cries shall never be forgot,

Nor shall their hopes be vain.
5. Rise, great Redeemer! from Thy seat,

To judge and save the poor ;
Eet nations tremble at Thy feet,

And man prevail no more.

1. LORD, when iniquities abound,

And blasphemy grows bold,
When faith is hardly to be found,

And love is waxing cold-
2. Is not Thy chariot hastening on?

Hast Thou not given the sign?
May we not trust and live upon

A promise so divine ?
3. “Yes,” saith the Lord, “now will I rise,

And make oppressors flee :
I will appear to their surprise,

And set My servants free.”

4. Thy word, like silver seven times tried,

Through ages shall endure;
The men, that in Thy truth confide,

Shall find the promise sure.

WATTS,

1. With my whole heart I'll raise my song,

Thy wonders I'll proclaim;
Thou, sovereign Judge of right and wrong,

Wilt put my foes to shame.
2. I'll sing Thy majesty and grace:

My God prepares His throne
To judge the world in righteousness,

And make His vengeance known.
3. Then shall the Lord a refuge prove

For all the poor oppress'd ;
To save the people of His love,

And give the weary
4. The men that know Thy name will trust

In Thine abundant grace;
For Thou dost ne'er forsake the just

Who humbly seek Thy face.
5. Sing praises to the righteous Lord,

Who dwells on Zion's hill,
Who executes His threatening word,

And doth His grace fulfill.

1. GIRD on Thy conquering sword,
Ascend Thy shining

car,
And march, almighty Lord !

To wage Thy holy war.
Before His wheels, in glad surprise,
Ye valleys, rise, and sink, ye hills.

.

2. Fair truth, and smiling love,

And injured righteousness,
Under Thy banners move,

And seek from Thee redress;
Thou in their cause shalt prosperous ride,
And far and wide dispense Thy laws.
3. Before Thine awful face

Millions of foes shall fall,
The captives of Thy grace-

The grace that captures all.
The world shall know, great King of kings,
What wondrous things Thine arm can do.
4. Here to my willing soul

Bend Thy triumphant way;
Here every foe control,

And all Thy power display;
My heart, Thy throne, blest Jesus! see,
Bows low to Thee, to Thee alone. DODDRIDGE.

H. M.
1. We give immortal praise

For God the Father's love-
For all our comforts here,

And better hopes above;
He sent His own eternal Son
To die for sins that we had done.
2. To God the Son belongs

Immortal glory, too,
Who bought us with His blood

From everlasting woe;
And now He lives, and now He reigns,
And sees the fruit of all His pains.
3. To God the Spirit's name

Immortal worship give,
Whose new-creating power

Makes the dead sinner live;
His work completes the great design,
And fills the soul with joy divine.

4. Almighty God! to Thee

Be endless honors done,
The undivided Three,

And the mysterious One:
Where reason fails, with all her powers,
There faith prevails, and love adores.

6s & 4s.
1. God bless our native land!
Firm may she ever stand,

Through storm and night;
When the wild tempests rave,
Ruler of winds and wave,
Do Thou our country save

By Thy great inight.
2. For her our prayer shall rise
To God above the skies;

On Him we wait;
Thou who hast heard each sigh,
Watching each weeping eye,
Be Thou forever nigh;-

God save the State !

1026.

68 & 4s.
1. LORD, from Thy blessed throne
Sorrow look down upon !

God save the poor!
Teach them true liberty,
Make them from tyrants free,
Let their homes happy be !

God save the poor!
2. The arms of wicked men
Do Thou with might restrain-

God save the poor!
Raise Thou their lowliness,
Succor Thou their distress,
Thou whom the meanest bless!

God save the poor!
