way, Adored be the
power that hath pitied my blindness, And weaned me from phantoms that smiled to

I followed the rainbow-I caught at the toy; And still in displeasure Thy goodness was there,
Disappointing the hope, and defeating the joy. 3. The blossom blushed bright, but a worm was below; The moonlight shone fair, there was blight in the
beam; Sweet whispered the breeze, but it whispered of
And bitterness flowed in the soft, flowing stream. 4. So, cured of my folly, yet cured but in part,

He calls you in mercy—'t is infinite favor;
Hallelujah to the Lamb, etc. 3. O Jesus! ride onward, triumphantly glorious, O’er sin, death, and hell, Thou art more than vic
torious; Thy name is the theme of the great congregation, While angels and men raise the shout of salvation.
Hallelujah to the Lamb, etc. 4. With joy shall we stand, when escaped to the shore; With harps in our hands, we'll praise Him the

12s. 1. Thou art gone to the grave! but we will not de
plore thee, Though sorrows and darkness encompass the
tomb; The Saviour hath passed through its portals before
thee, And the lamp of His love is thy guide through
the gloom. 2. Thou art gone to the grave! we no longer behold

Death is o'er and life is won;
Rest; thine earthly race is run.
Endless day is round thee poured;
For the people of the Lord.
He who died that thou mightst live;
Waits thy crown of joy to give.
With the tones of earthly love,

From on high Jehovah speaks!
Earth beholds Him;
2. Zion, all its light unfolding,
God in glory shall display;
Tempests round Him
To the earth beneath He cries;
Rise to judgment;
Those who to My covenant stood;
And His righteousness declare;
Just His judgment !
88 & 7s.
Thou hast wondrous power to save;
Over life's tempestuous wave.
View the dawn while yet afar;
Lead me by the Morning Star.
On the banks beyond the stream;
Jesus, Jesus is their theme.
