Let every tongue and every heart
C. M. 281
Dedication to God.
To thee our hearts we raise;
Ånd gladly sing thy praise.
Our sacrifice receive;
To thee ourselves we give.
Shed in our hearts abroad;
C. M. 282
Joining the Church of Christ.
Before the Lord we speak;
A vow we dare not break,-
Ourselves to Christ we yield;
Or ever quit the field.
But on his grace rely ;
All needful aid supply.
And keep us in thy ways ;
And while we turn our vows to prayers,
S. M. 283
All One in Christ.
The Christian world o'erspread:
Are one in Christ their head. 2 Among the saints on earth
Let mutual love be found;
With mutual blessings crowned. 3 Thus will the church below
Resemble that above;
C. M. 284
The heavenly Race.
And press with vigor on:
A bright, immortal crown.
That calls thee from on high; 'Tis his own hand presents the prize
To thine aspiring eye. 3 A cloud of witnesses around
Hold thee in full survey: Forget the steps already trod,
And onward urge thy way. 4 Blest Saviour_introduced by thee,
Have we our race begun;
And, crowned with victory, at thy feet
L. M. 285
Christian Warfare and Victory. STAND up, my soul-shake off thy fears,
And gird the gospel armor on; March to the gates of endless joy,
Where Jesus, thy great Captain's gone. 2 Hell and thy sins resist thy course ;
But hell and sin are vanquished foes; Thy Jesus nailed them to the cross, And
sung the triumph when he rose. 3 Then let my soul march boldly on,
Press forward to the heavenly gate; There peace and joy eternal reign,
And glittering robes for conquerors wait. 4 There shall I wear a starry crown,
And triumph in almighty grace;
S. M. 286
Watchfulness and Prayer inculcated.
Ten thousand foes arise ;
-To draw thee from the skies. 2 Oh watch, and fight, and pray ;
The battle ne'er give o'er;
And help divine implore.
Nor lay thine armor down:
Thy arduous work will not be done
Till thou obtain thy crown. 4 Fight on, my soul, till death
Shall bring thee to thy God; He'll take thee, at thy parting breath,
Up to his blest abode.
C. M. 287
Christian Courage and Self-denial.
A follower of the Lamb ?-
Or blush to speak his name?
Must I not stem the flood ?
To help me on to God? 3 Sure I must fight—if I would reign;
Increase my courage, Lord !
Supported by thy word.
Shall conquer, though they're slain : They see the triumph from afar, And soon with Christ shall
reign. 5 When that illustrious day shall rise,
And all thy armies shine In robes of victory through the skies, · The glory shall be thine.
C. M. 288
Succor implored in spiritual Conflicts.
What snares beset my way!
To heaven, oh let me lift mine eyes,
And hourly watch and pray.
My feeble efforts aid;
Though trembling and afraid.
And bid the tempter flee; And let me never, never stray From happiness and thee.
L. M. 61. 289
Hope of Heaven by Christ.
A mansion to prepare for me
And there forever sit with thee?
I'll triumph in thy glorious name. 2 What transport, Lord, shall fill my heart,
When thou my worthless name wilt own!
And know as I myself am known!
S. M. 290
Heavenly Joy on Earth.
And let our joys be known;
And thus surround the throne. 2 Let those refuse to sing,
Who never knew our God,
