The Bible suited to our Wants.

1 FATHER of mercies! in thy word
What endless glory shines!

For ever be thy name adored,
For these celestial lincs.

2 Here, the fair tree of kwledge grown,
And yields a free repast;
Sublimer sweets than nature knows
Invite the longing taste.

3 Here, the Redeemer's welcome voice
Spreads heavenly peace around;
And life, and everlasting joys
Attend the blissful sound.

4 Oh! may these heavenly pages be My ever dear delight;

And still new beauties may I see,
And still increasing light.

5 Divine instructor, gracious Lord!
Be thou for ever near;
Teach me to love thy sacred word,
And view my Saviour there.

Prophecy and Inspiration.

1 'T WAS by an order from the Lord,
The ancient prophets spoke his word;
His spirit did their tongues inspire,
And warmed their hearts with heavenly fire.

2 Great God! mine eyes with pleasure look
On the dear volume of thy book;
There my Redeemer's face I see,
And read his name who died for me.

3 Let the false raptures of the mind
Be lost, and vanish in the wind;
Here I can fix my hope secure;
This is thy word, and must endure.

The Holy Scriptures.

1 LADEN with guilt, and full of fears,
I fly to thee, my Lord!

And not a glimpse of hope appears,
But in thy written word.

2 The volume of my Father's grace
Does all my grief assuage;
Here I behold my Saviour's face,
Almost in every page.

3 Here, consecrated

er flows,
To quench my thirst of sin;
Here, the fair tree of knowledge grows →
No danger dwells therein.

4 This is the judge that ends the strife,
Where wit and reason fail ;—
My guide to everlasting life,
Through all this gloomy vale.

5 Oh! may thy counsels, mighty God!
My roving feet command;
Nor I forsake the happy road
That leads to thy right hand.

L. M.


A Saviour seen in the Scriptures.

1 NOW let my soul, eternal King!
To thee its grateful tribute bring;
My knee, with humble homage, bow,
My tongue perform its solemn vow.

2 All nature sings thy boundless love,
In worlds below, and worlds above;
But, in thy blessed word, I trace
Diviner wonders of thy grace.
