5 In the deserts let me labor,
On the mountains let me tell
Let me hasten,
Let the winds my canvass swell-
Glad I bid thee,
Relief and Comfort sought in Prayer.
Rise and ask without delay. 2 With my burden I begin:
Lord, remove this load of sin;
Set my conscience free from guilt. 3 Lord, I come to thee for rest;
Take possession of my breast:
And without a rival reign. 381

Now hear me while I pray ;
Be wholly thine.
My zeal inspire;
A living fire.
Be thou my guide;
From thee aside.
Shall o'er me roll;
A ransomed soul.
C. M. 382
Nature of Prayer.
Returning from his ways;
in their songs rejoice,
The Christian's native air ;
His watch-word at the gates of death ;
He enters heaven with prayer.
The Holy Spirit pleads ;
For sinners intercedes.
The Life, the Truth, the Way!
S. M. 383
Encouragement to Prayer.
His children when they cry?
He'll help them from on high. 2 His nature, truth, and love,
Engage him on their side;
And can they be denied ? 3 Then let us earnest be,
And never faint in prayer:
And makes our cause his care.
SING to the Lord, who loud proclaims
But by our sure experience known. 2 Through every age his gracious ear
Is open to his servants' prayer;
8s & 7s.
Nor can one humble soul complain, >
That he has sought his God in vain. 3 What unbelieving heart shall dare
In whispers to suggest a fear?
The same his power-his love the same! 4 To thee our souls in faith arise,
To thee we lift expecting eyes;
For God will guard, where God shall lead. 385
Washed the leper's stain away-
Hear us, help us, when we pray. 2 From the filth of vice and folly,
From infuriate passion's rage,
Heedless youth and selfish age;3 From the lusts whose deep pollutions
Adam's ancient taint disclose,
Restless doubt and blind repose ;4 From the miser's cursed treasure,
From the drunkard's jest obscene,
Jesus, Master, make us clean. 386
The Seaman's Prayer for Deliverance. WHEN through the torn sail the wild tempest is
streaming, When o'er the dark wave the red lightning is
Nor hope lends a ray the poor seamen to cherish,
We fly to our Maker Help, Lord, or we perish' 2 O Jesus, once tossed on the breast of the billow,
Aroused by the shriek of despair from thy pillow,
perish.' 3 And oh, when the whirlwind of passion is raging,
When hell in our heart his wild warfare is waging, Arise in thy strength, thy redeemed to cherish, Rebuke the destroyer- Help, Lord, or we perish'
C. M. 387
In Times of Distress and Danger. O GOD, that 'madest earth and sky,
The darkness and the day, Give ear to this thy family,
And help us when we pray.
Around our vessel roar,
To view the rocky shore.
For him we fain would bear;
And courage to despair.
Our sinking faith renew; And when thy sorrows visit us,
Oh! send thy patience too.

Prayer for Zion's Increase. SAVIOUR, visit thy plantation ;
Grant us, Lord, a gracious rain ;
