4. Mourn for the lost-but call,
Call to the strong, the free;
And to the refuge flee.
Pray to our God above,
And show His saving love.
clime and coast,
The land we love the most.
2. Our fathers’ sepulchers are here,
And here our kindred dwell;
Another land so well ?
3. O guard our shores from every foe,
With peace our borders bless;
times our cities crown,
Of knowledge, truth, and Thee;
The songs of liberty.
Our country we commend;
Her everlasting Friend!
1. WHEN Jesus dwelt in mortal clay,
What were his works from day to day,
grace, That spread salvation through our race ?
2. Teach us, O Lord, to keep in view
Thy pattern, and Thy steps pursue;
Be witnessed by each rolling sun.
Who much receives, but nothing gives;
Creation's blot, creation's blank !
In generous acts his radiant way,
L. M. 1. We praise Thee, Lord! if but one soul,
While the past year prolonged its flight, Turned shudd'ring from the pois'nous bowl,
To health, and liberty, and light.
Where broken hearts despairing pined,
Erect, and in his perfect mind. 3. No more a weeping wife to mock,
Till all her hopes in anguish end-
And sink the father in the fiend. 4. Still give us grace, Almighty King!
Unwavering at our posts to stand ;
The tribute of a ransomed land.
Dash to the earth the poisoned bowl!
Compared with those that chafe the soul.
2. Hosannas, Lord ! to Thee we sing,
Whose power the giant fiend obeys:
For happier homes and brighter days! 3. Thou wilt not break the bruised reed,
Nor leave the broken heart unbound;
The orphan clasps a father found ! 4. Spare, Lord! the thoughtless; guide the blind;
Till man no more shall deem it just
His weaker brother in the dust.
1. Father of mercies ! send Thy grace,
All powerful from above,
The image of Thy love.
The generous pleasure know,
for others' woe!
In low distress are laid,
And swift our hands to aid.
4. So Jesus looked on dying men,
When throned above the skies ;
He felt compassion rise.
15. On wings of love the Saviour flew,
To raise us from the ground,
Feels all another's pain;
Was never raised in vain :2. Whose breast expands with generous warmth,
A stranger's woes to feel;
To every child of grief:
And brings unasked relief. 4. To gentle offices of love
His feet are never slow;
A brother in a foe.
The Saviour's grace shall give;
His trembling soul shall live.
To rule by love than fear;
The good we may do here.
Will have enough to bear;
'Tis full of anxious care.
Grieve not the careworn heart;
Let them in peace depart.
4. Speak gently to the erring ones
They must have toiled in vain;
'O, win them back again!
Dropped in the heart's deep well;
Eternity shall tell.
1. FRIENDS of the
the weak !
Shall children plead in vain ?
The time when young as we:
And hearken to our plea.
In every heart that reigns?
*Shall nature plead in vain ?
As weak and young as we ?
Could you resist their plea?
For man's redemption slain ?
Shall Jesus plead in vain ?
When poor and young as we;
Accept your Saviour's plea.
