5 To what thy laws impart,
Be my whole soul inclin'd;
And sanctify my mind.
By these to cleanse his way;
That leads to endless day.
243. Early Piety. Matt. xii. 20. (L. M.)
OW soft the words my Saviour speaks!
How kind the promises he makes!
Nor will be quench the smoking flax. 2 The humble poor he won't despise,
Nor on the contrite sinner frown :
He quickly sends salvation down. 3 When piety in early minds,
Like tender buds, begins to shoot;
And ripens blossoms into fruit.
In all the sorrows they endure;
His promise is for ever sure.
Between the powers of grace and sin;
6 Though press'd with fears on every side,
They know not how the strife may end;
To Youth. (P. M.)
LEND your ear, ye youthful tribe,
To guide your wand'ring way!
She leads to endless day.
Will in the end confer!
Her merchandise prefer.
Relief from guilt and sin :
Your youthful hearts to win.
sung by every friend ; A tree of life, divinely fair; Nor death, nor danger, shall they share,
Who Wisdom's voice attend.
5 The Scriptures read, nor shall you miss The road to life and happiness :
There Wisdom's voice is heard.
And share the rich reward. 6 Be true, benevolent, and pure, Patiently suffer, and endure
The chast’ning of the Lord: Servant of God, to man a friend, Happy your life, -and peace your end;
In heav'n your great reward.
245. A Birth Day Hymn. (P. M.)
MY Ebenezer raise, 11
To my kind Redeemer's praise ; With a grateful heart I own,
Hitherto thy help I've known.
Well I know concerns me not;
What thy will ordains is best.
Father, let thy will be mine ;
Fruits of thy paternal love.
Guard me in the trying hour :
5 Let my few remaining days,
Be directed to thy praise ;
Shall be tranquil and serene.
Grant me but this one request ;
For a Birth Day. (P. M.)
1 VOD of my life, to thee
My cheerful soul I raise,
Ånd still prolongs my days:
And bless the day, that I was born. 2 A clod of living earth,
I glorify thy name,
And all my blessings came;
Let all that is within me praise. 3 My soul, and all its powers,
Thine, wholly thine, shall be ;
I consecrate to thee;
4 Long as I live beneath,
To thee O let me live,
In thanks and blessings give;
A Wedding Hymn. (C. M.)
1 SINCE Jesus freely did appear,
O Lord, we ask thy presence here,
To make a wedding-guest.
Who now have plighted hands;
And bless the nuptial bands.
Of all rich dowries best!
To sweeten all the rest.
That they, with christian care,
By taking mutual share.
In prayer, and faith, and hope;
To build their household up.
