3 God the all-merciful, earth hath forsaken

Thy ways of blessedness, slighted Thy

Bid not Thy wrath in its terrors awaken :

Give to us peace in our time, O Lord.
4 So shall Thy children, in thankful devotion,

Laud Him who saved them from penil

Singing in chorus from ocean to ocean,
Peace to the nations, and praise to the



MOD the Lord has heard our prayer,
UT God has lightened all our care;
To His glorious throne on high
Rose His children's mournful cry:
Hallelujah, praises sing

To our Father and our King.
2 Helpless, Lord, Thy face we sought,

Thou hast our deliverance wrought;
God, who gave us faith to pray,
Give us thankful hearts to-day:
Hallelujah, Lord, to Thee

Sing we, though unworthily.
3 Now the night of grief is gone,

Now with joy breaks forth the morn;
Trust in God if ye would prove
All the riches of His love:
Hallelujah, praise the Lord,
Trust His love and plead His Word.

NY RACE, 'tis a charming sound,

T Harmonious to my ear:
S.M. Heaven with the echo shall resound,

And all the earth shall hear


Grace first contrived a way

To save rebellious man;
And all the steps that grace display

Which drew the wondrous plan.

[ocr errors]

Grace taught my wandering feet

To tread the heavenly road,
And new supplies each hour I meet,

While pressing on to God.
Grace all the work shall crown,

Through everlasting days :
It lays in heaven the topmost stone,

And well deserves the praise.

MY REAT God, indulge my humble claim,

U Thou art my hope, my joy, my rest: L.M. The glories that compose Thy name

Stand all engaged to make me blest.
2 Thou great and good, Thou just and wise,

Thou art my Father and my God;
And I am Thine by sacred ties;

Thy son, Thy servant bought with blood. 3 With heart and eyes, and lifted hands,

For Thee I long, to Thee I look,
As travellers in thirsty lands

Pant for the cooling waterbrook.
4 With early feet I love to appear

Among Thy saints and seek Thy face, Oft have I seen Thy glory there,

And felt the power of sovereign grace. 5 I'll lift my hands, I'll raise my voice,

While I have breath to pray or praise; This work shall make my heart rejoice,

And spend the remnant of my days.

MY REAT God of wonders, all Thy ways

UT Are matchless, God-like, and divine, 88. But the fair glories of Thy grace

More God-like and unrivalled shine;
Who is a pardoning God like Thee?

Or who has grace so rich and free?
2 In wonder lost, with trembling joy
• We take the pardon of our God:
Pardon for crimes of deepest dye,

A pardon bought with Jesus' blood;
Who is a pardoning God like Thee?

Or who has grace so rich and free?
3 O may this strange, this matchless grace,

This God-like miracle of love,
Fill the wide earth with grateful praise,

And all the angelic choirs above;
Who is a pardoning God like Thee ?
Or who has grace so rich and free?

OF CY REAT God, what do I see and hear?

UT The end of things created !
8,7,8,7,The Judge of mankind doth appear,
8,8,7. On clouds of glory seated.

The trumpet sounds; the graves restore
The dead which they contained before;

Prepare, my soul, to meet Him.
2 The dead in Christ shall first arise

At the last trumpet's sounding,
Caught up to meet Him in the skies,

With joy their Lord surrounding.
No gloomy fears their souls dismay;
His presence sheds eternal day

On those prepared to meet Him.
3 But sinners, filled with guilty fears,

Behold His wrath prevailing;
For they shall rise, and find their tears

And sighs are unavailing.
The day of grace is past and gone;
Trembling, they stand before the throne,

All unprepared to meet Him.
4 Great God, what do I see and hear?

The end of things created !
The Judge of mankind doth appear

On clouds of glory seated.
Low at His cross I view the day
When heaven and earth shall pass away,

And thus prepare to meet Him.

Y REAT King of nations, hear our prayer,

T while at Thy feet we fall, D.C.M. And humbly, with united cry, to Thee for

mercy call; The guilt is ours, but grace is Thine, O turn

us not away, But hear us from Thy lofty throne, and help

us when we pray.

2 Our fathers' sins were manifold, and ours no

less we own, Yet wondrously from age to age Thy good

ness hath been shown; When dangers, like a stormy sea, beset our

country round, To Thee we looked, to Thee we cried, and

help in Thee was found.

3 With one consent we meekly bow beneath

Thy chastening hand,
And pouring forth confession meet, mourn

with our mourning land;
With pitying eye behold our need, as thus we

lift our prayer, Correct us with Thy judgments, Lord, then

let Thy mercy spare.

YUIDE me, O Thou great Jehovah,

I Pilgrim through this barren land;
85.78. I am weak, but Thou art mighty,
4. Hold me with Thy powerful hand :

Bread of heaven,
Feed me now and evermore.

2 Open now the crystal fountain,

Whence the healing streams do flow;
Let the fiery cloudy pillar
Lead me all my journey through:

Strong Deliverer,
Be Thou still my strength and shield.

3 When I tread the verge of Jordan,

Bid my anxious fears subside;
Death of death and hell's destruction,
Land me safe on Canaan's side:

Songs of praises,
I will ever give to Thee.

TTAIL the day that sees Him rise, 00 Tl Ravished from our wishful eyes;

Christ, awhile to mortals given,

Reascends His native heaven.
2 There the glorious triumph waits;

Lift your heads, eternal gates;
Wide unfold the radiant scene,

Take the King of glory in.
3 Him, though highest heaven receives,

Still He loves the earth He leaves;
Though returning to His throne,

Still He calls mankind His own.
4 See, He lifts His hands above;

See, He shows the prints of love;
Hark, His gracious lips bestow

Blessings on His Church below.
5. Still for us His death He pleads;

Prevalent, He intercedes;
Near Himself prepares our place,

Harbinger of human race.
6 Lord, though parted from our sight,

High above yon azure height,
Grant our hearts may thither rise,
Following Thee beyond the skies.

TTAIL, Thou once despised Jesus, 89 H Hail, Thou Galilean King; 88.7s. Thou didst suffer to release us,

Thou didst free salvation bring:
Hail, Thou agonising Saviour,

Bearer of our sin and shame,
By Thy merits we find favour;

Life is given through Thy name.
