This course will speak thee truly wise,
And raise thee to the world above. 406. C. M. C. WESLEY.
Watchfulness. 1 WE want a principle within
Of jealous, godly fear;
A pain to find it near.
of pride, or fond desire To catch the wandering of the will,
And quench the kindling fire. 3 From thee that we no more may part,
No more thy goodness grieve, The filial awe, the fleshly heart,
The tender conscience give. 4 Quick as the apple of an eye,
O God, our conscience make! Awake our souls, when sin is nigh,
And keep them still awake. 407.
C. M. DODDRIDGE.
And view the threatening scene:
And treachery lurks within. 2 'Tis not this mortal life alone
These enemies assail;
If their attempts prevail ?
Behold your Master near-
With vigour, and with fear, 4 The awful register goes on,
The account will surely come; And opening day, or closing night
May bear us to our doom.
Yet like a dream it flies,
From these deluded eyes.

So her rewards increase ;
And all her paths are peace. 410. C. M. J. NEWTON.
True and false Zeal. 1 ZEAL is that pure and heavenly flame
The fire of love supplies; While that which often bears the name,
Is self, in a disguise.
Can pity and forbear;
And breathes revenge and war. 3 While zeal for truth the Christian warms,
He knows the worth of peace;
Its party to increase.
And be applauded here;
When Jesus shall appear.
And from our hearts remove; And let no zeal by us be shown,
But that which springs from love. 411.
L. M. WATTS.
Zeal tempered by Charity,
Sees every passion in each soul !
Teach us those passions to control.
Be charity their constant spring;
Pollute the offerings which we bring! 3 Let love with piety unite
To mend the bias of each will;

Wisdom descending from above;

And meditate his word. 413. S. M. WATTS.
Safety of the Church. 1 HOW honoured is the place,
Where we adoring stand, Zion, the glory of the earth,
And beauty of the land ! 2 Bulwarks of grace
defend The city where we dwell; While walls, of strong salvation made,
Defy the assaults of hell. 3 Lift up th' eternal gates,
The doors wide open fling; Enter, ye nations that obey
The statutes of your King.
4 Here taste unmingled joys,
And live in perfect peace;.
And ventured on his grace. 5 Trust in the Lord, ye saints,
And banish all your fears:
Eternal as his years. 414. L. M. WATTS. 1 HAPPY the church, thou sacred place,
The seat of thy Creator's grace;
Thou earthly palace of our God. 2 Thy walls are strength- and at thy gates
A guard of heavenly warriors waits ;
Fixed on his counsels and his love. 3 Thy foes in vain designs engage,
Against thy throne in vain they rage;
That break and die upon the shore. 4 Then let our souls in Zion dwell,
Nor fear the wrath of earth and hell;
Like brazen bulwarks built around. -5 God is our shield-and God our sun;
Swift as the fleeting moments run,
And we reflect his brightest praise. 415. P. M. CowPER.
Peace and glory of the Church. 1 HEAR what God, the Lord, hath spoken,
O my people ! faint and few, Comfortless, afflicted, broken;
Fair abodes I build for you: Themes of heartfelt tribulation
Shall no more perplex your ways; You shall name your walls, salvation,
And your gates shall all be praise.
