Prayer for the Jews. (L. M.)
Its beams effuse on Jacob's race; Loose from their chains the captive band,
Restore them to their native land. 2 O God of Abr’am, hear our prayer,
Grant them again thy love to share ;
Their trespass hide, their pardon seal.
The sad suspension of thy love?
And wilt thou, ne'er appeas'd, return? 4 No longer, God of love, delay
Thy wonted mercy to display;
Thy people's stedfast hope fulfil,
And wake to mirth each grateful heart;
Their bliss and full salvation see. 184. Latter Day Glory. Mic. iv, 1–5. Isa. ii. 2–
(C.M.) 1 BE EHOLD ! the mountain of the Lord,
In latter days shall rise
And draw the wondering eyes. 2 To this, the joyful nations round,
All tribes and tongues shall flow; “ Up to the hill of God," they'll say,
" And to his house we'll go.'
3 The beam that shines on Zion's bill,
Shall lighten every land ;
Shall all the world command.
Or mar the peaceful years ;
To pruning-hooks their spears.
Their millions slain deplore;
And study war no more.
To worship at his shrine :
With holy beauties shine.
185. How beautiful upon the Mountains are the
Feet of him who bringeth good Tidings. (P. M.) 1 1
N the mountain's top appearing,
All thy friends unfaithful proy'd ?
Čease thy mourning,
3 God, thy God, will now restore thee!
He himself appears thy friend :
All thy warfare now is past,
All thy conflicts,
186. For Missionary Prayer Meetings. (L. M.)
1 ORD, in thy churches now appear,
And animate thy saints with zeal ;
May we thy presence with us feel !
To know thy love, and taste thy grace;
In winning sinners to thy ways.
While thousands perish all around !
Now let thy power with us be found.
Are preaching Christ, as All in All!
5 O let the seed, which may be sown,
Be water'd with the Spirit's pow'r;
187. The same. (P. M.)
Whose constant thoughts, and highest plan,
Aim at the good of all! “ Thy kingdom come,”- he fervent prays, Then helps the glorious work to raise,
Till Satan's empire fall.
At Jesu's sceptre fall !
To crown him Lord of All!
SEASONS, &c. 188. The Seasons of the Year. (C.M.) 1 WITH songs and honours sounding loud, Over the heav'ns he spreads his cloud,
And waters veil the sky.
To cheer the plains below;
And corn in valleys grow.
3 He gives the grazing ox his meat,
He hears the ravens cry;
Should raise his honours high.
Of the declining year ;
And wintry days appear.
Descend and clothe the ground;
In icy fetters bound.
He poars the rattling hail,
Shall find his courage fail.
The fields no longer mourn;
And bids the Spring return.
Obey his mighty word:
Praise ye the sov’reign Lord.
189. The same. (L. M.)
BRITAIN, praise thy mighty God,
And make his honours known abroad;
