5 May we in faith receive Thy word,
Thee this temple we devote,
2 Here may the prayer of faith ascend,
Oh, may each lowly service prove
3 Here may the sinner learn his guilt,
4 Here may affliction dry the tear,
5 Peace be within these sacred walls,
Still smile upon Thy people, Lord,
8s & 7s.
YOME Thou now, and be among us,
Let Thy presence fill the temple
And, Thyself its Consecrator,
3 Here our souls, as Thy true altars,
4 Praise and honor to the Father;
8s & 7s.

Of love, and truth, and heaven.
3 Still hand in hand, their journey through,

In faith and trust and heart the same,
OURN for the thousands slain,
Mourn for the wine-cup's fearful reign,
2 Mourn for the tarnish'd gem
For reason's light divine,
Quench'd from the soul's bright diadem,
3 Mourn for the lost- but call,
Rouse them to shun that dreadful fall;
4 Mourn for the lost-but pray,
To break the fell destroyer's sway,
HYMNS FOR THE YOUNG.
8s, 6s & 7.
Thousands of children stand,
Children whose sins are all forgiven,
Glory be to God on high.
2 In flowing robes of spotless white
Dwelling in everlasting light,
3 What brought them to that world above, That heaven so bright and fair,
Where all is peace, and joy, and love;
4 Because the Saviour shed His blood,
Bathed in that pure and precious flood
5 On earth they sought the Saviour's grac
