2 Thou, Saviour, art the living bread;
Thou wilt my every want supply:
I'll press through dangers to the sky. 3 What though temptations oft distress,
And sin assails and breaks my peace; Thou wilt uphold, and save, and bless,
And bid the storms of passion cease. 4 Then let me take thy gracious hand,
And walk beside thee onward still;
Forever firm on Zion's hill.
Living by Faith on the Son of Goa.
With thy fruit my spirit feed.
Without thee, I droop and die;
Help I every moment need.
Love me, save me, to the end!
Take the everlasting praise. 274
Love to the Saints. PEOPLE of the living God!
I have sought the world around, Paths of sin and sorrow trod,
Peace and comfort no where found:
2 Now to you my spirit turns,
Turns, a fugitive unblest'; Brethren, where your altar burns,
Oh, receive me into rest. 3 Lonely I no longer roam,
Like the restless wind or wave; Where you dwell shall be my home,
Where you die shall be my grave. 4 Mine the God whom you adore,
Your Redeemer shall be mine;
Every idol I resign.
S. M. 275
Our hearts in Christian love!
Is like to that above.
We pour our ardent prayers;
Our comforts and our cares. 3 We share our mutual woes,
Our mutual burdens bear;
The sympathizing tear.
It gives us mutual pain;
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,
From sin, we shall be free;
Through all eternity.
When those that love the Lord,
And thus fulfil his word ! 2 When each can feel his brother's sigh,
And with him bear a part;
And joy from heart to heart :3 When, free from envy, scorn, and pride,
Our wishes all above,
And show a brother's love:
Through every bosom flows; And union sweet, and dear esteem,
In every action glows.
The happy souls above;
His bosom glow with love.
SWEET the time—exceeding sweet! When the saints together meet,
When the Saviour is the theme,
When they join to sing of him. 2 Sing we then eternal love,
Such as did the Father move :
Loved the world—and gave his Son. 3 Sing the Son's amazing love ;
How he left the realms above,
Lived and died to save our race. 4 Sing we too the Spirit's love:
With our wretched hearts he strovė,
Brought the precious Saviour near. 5 Sweet the place-exceeding sweet,
Where the saints in glory meet;

Excellence of Christian Unanimity and Love.
How excellent thy praise !
Thy gracious power displays. 2 Sweet as the dew on herb and flower,
That silently distils,
On Zion's fruitful hills :-
Shall promised grace descend, Till universal peace and love
O'er all the earth extend.
That will not let us part:
We still are one in heart!
Where he appoints we go;
And still his praise we show. 8 Oh may we ever walk in him,
And nothing know beside !
But Jesus crucified !
We're one in mind and heart;
Not life, nor death--can part. 280
Oh bless the Saviour's name;
Adore and praise the same. 2 Lord, in thy grace we came,
That blessing still impart;
In Jesus' name we part. 3 Still on thy holy word
We'll live, and feed, and grow, And still go on to know the Lord,
And practise what we know, 4 Now, Lord, before we part, Help us to bless thy name:
