HYMN 745. C. M.
Nature and Fruits of Charity.
All tender, soft and kind !
To all that's good inclin'd!
To all his lib’ral hand :
His pity may command.
He hears when they complain ; With tender heart delights to bless,
And lessen all their pain. 4 The sick, the pris'ner, poor and blind,
And all the sons of grief, In him a benefactor find
He loves to give relief. 5 "Tis love that makes religion sweet;
'Tis love that makes us rise, With willing minds and ardent feet, To yonder happy skies.
HYMN 746. L. M. 
The Compassionate Man. BLEST is the man whose heart doth move
And melt with pity to the poor ; Whose soul, by sympathizing love,
Feels what his fellow saints endure. 2 His heart contrives for their relief,
More good than his own hands can do; He, in a time of gen’ral grief,
Shall find the Lord hath mercy too! 3 His soul shall live secure on earth, With secret blessings on his head,
When drought, and pestilence, and death,
Around him multiply their dead. 4 Or, if he languish on his couch,
God will pronounce his sins forgiv'n;
HYMN 747. P. M. 
Blessings on the Charitable. BLEST is the man who loves the poor,
Nor let's the suff'rer plead in vain;
And deems such distribution gain :
And pain and grief his peace devour,
And bring back nature's failing power;
Enlarge my charity and zeal;
That I the strength of love may feel : Then to my soul shall peace be given, And I shall praise thy love in heaven!
HYMN 748. C. M. 
4 Hymn for a Maternal Association. GREAT God we would to thee make known
Each fond, maternal care ;
Nor aught the world can give;
May they but glorify thy name,
And to thy honor live. 3 This is the burden of our prayer
When from our bosoms riven, May they be objects of thy care, And heirs, at last, of heaven.
HYMN 749. C. M. 
In all his works appears;
His grandeur in the spheres.
By him in wisdom planned ; 'Twas he who girded like a robe,
The ocean round the land.
Diffusing joy and wealth ;
The breath of life and health. 4 His blessings fall in plenteous showers
Upon the face of earth, That teems with foliage, fruit and flowers,
And rings with infant mirth. 5 If God hath made this world so fair,
Where sin and death abound, How beautiful beyond compare Will paradise be found!
HYMN 750. C. M 
Creation and Redemption.
Most glorious to behold;
And stard with sparkling gold.
2 Thy glories blaze all nature round,
And strike the gazing sight,
With terror and delight. .
Beam on us from above: Mercy divine in Jesus' face We see, adore and love!
HYMN 751. 8 & 7s.
A Marriage Hymn.
On the happy pair to rest;
Make them now and ever blest. 2 Thou canst change the course of nature,
Turning water into wine; But we ask a greater favor
May they be for ever thine. 3 Thine by cov'nant and adoption,
Thine by free and sov'reign grace; May they, in each word and action,
Do thy will and speak thy praise.
Fill their basket and their store;
Hearts thy goodness to adore.
May the voice of prayer ascend, For thy mercies still increasing,
To their best, their kindest Friend. 6 Through this life's tempestuous ocean,
Storms are thick and dangers nigh; O may constant pure devotion,
Guide them safe to realms on high.
PRAISE God, from whom all blessings
Praise him all creatures here below;
8s & 7s. GLORY be to God the Father
Glory be to God the Son,
Everlasting three in one:
One God whom we adore,
And shall be evermore.
