4 0, let us stir each other up,

Our faith by works t'approve,
By holy, purifying hope,

And the sweet task of love.
5 Let all who for the promise wait,

The Holy Ghost receive;
And rais’d to our unsinning state,

With God in Eden live!
6 Live, till the Lord in glory come,

And wait his heaven to share !
He now is fitting up our home:
Go on, we'll meet you there!

HYMN 320. C. M.' [116]
ALL praise to our redeeming Lord,

Who joins us by his grace,
And bids us each to each restord,

Together seek his face.
2 He bids us build each other up;

And gather'd into one,
To our high calling's glorious hope,

We hand in hand go on.
3 The gift which he on one bestows,

We all delight to prove,
The grace through every vessel flows,

In purest streams of love.
4 E'en now we think and speak the same,

And cordially agree,
United all through Jesus name

In perfect harmony.
5 We all partake the joy of one,

The common peace we feel;
A peace to sensual minds unknown,

A joy unspeakable.

6 And if our fellowship below

In Jesus be so sweet,
What height of rapture shall we know,
When round his throne we meet!

HYMN 321. S. M.
JESUS, we look to thee,

Thy promis'd presence claim; Thou in the midst of us shalt be,

Assembled in thy name:
Thy name salvation is,

Which here we come to prove;
Thy name, is life, and health, and peace,

And everlasting love.
2 Not in the name of pride,

Or selfishness we meet;
From nature's paths we turn aside,

And worldly thoughts forget :
We meet the grace to take,

Which thou hast freely given;
We meet on earth for thy dear sake,

That we may meet in heaven. 3 Present we know thou art,

But 0, thyself reveal!
Now, Lord, let every bounding heart

The mighty comfort feel!
O may thy quick’ning voice,

The death of sin remove;
And bid our in most souls rejoice,
In hope of perfect love!

HYMN 322. C. M. [117]
LO! what an entertaining sight

Those friendly brethren prove, Whose cheerful hearts in bands unite

Of harmony and love!

CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP.
2 Where streams of bliss from Christ the

spring,
Descend on every soul ;
And heavenly peace with balmy wing

Shades and revives the whole.
3 'Tis pleasant as the morning dews

That fall on Zion's hill,
Where God his mildest glory shows,
And make his grace distil.

HYMN 323. S. M.
BLEST are the sons of peace,

Whose hearts and hopes are one,
Whose kind designs to serve and please

Through all their actions run.
2 Blest is the pious house

Where zeal and friendship meet,
Their songs of praise, their mingled vows,

Make their communion sweet. 3 Thus on the heavenly hills

The saints are blest above, Where joy like morning dew distils,

And all the air is love.

HYMN 324. C. M.

[ocr errors][merged small]

GIVER of concord, Prince of peace,

Meek, lamb-like Son of God, Bid our unruly passions cease,

By thy atoning blood.
2 Subdue in us the carnal mind,

Its enmity destroy;
With cords of love our spirits bind,

And melt us into joy.
3 Us into closest union draw,

And in our inward parts,

CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP.

Let kindness sweetly write her law,

And love command our hearts.
4 Saviour, look down with pitying eyes,

Our jarring wills control;
Let cordial, kind affections rise,

And harmonize the soul.
5 O let us find the ancient way

Our wond'ring foes to move, And force the heathen world to say, " See how these Christians love !"

HYMN 325. S. M. [119] BLEST be the tie that binds

Our hearts in Christian love; The fellowship of kindred minds

Is like to that above.
2 Before our Father's throne,

We pour our ardent prayers;
Our fears, our hopes, our aims are one,

Our comforts and our cares.
3 We share our mutual woes;

Our mutual burdens bear;
And often for each other flows

The sympathizing tear.
4 When we asunder part,

It gives us inward pain,
But we shall still be join'd in heart,

And hope to meet again.
5 This glorious hope revives

Our courage by the way;
While each in expectation lives,

And longs to see the day.
6 From sorrow, toil, and pain,

And sin we shall be free;
And perfect love and friendship reign

Through all eternity.

HYMN 326. S. M. [120]
AND are we yet alive,

And see each other's face?
Glory and praise to Jesus give,

For his redeeming grace!
Preserv'd by power divine

To full salvation here,
Again in Jesus' praise we join,

And in his sight appear.
2 What troubles have we seen!

What conflicts have we past!
Fightings without and fears .within,

Since we assembled last;
But out of all the Lord

Hath brought us by his love;
And still he doth his help afford,

And hides our life above.
3 Then let us make our boast

Of his redeeming power,
Which saves us to the uttermost,

Till we can sin no more:
Let us take up the cross,

Till we the crown obtain;
And gladly reckon all things loss,
So we may Jesus gain.

HYMN 327. C. M.
GOD of all consolation, take

The glory of thy grace!
Thy gifts to thee we render back,

In ceaseless songs of praise.
2 Through thee we now together came,

In singleness of heart;
We met, O Jesus, in thy name;

And in thy name we part.
