2 Before our Father's throne

We pour our ardent prayers;

And often for each other flows The sympathizing tear.

Our fears, our hopes, our aims are one, 4 When we asunder part,

Our comforts and our cares.

3 We share our mutual woes, Our mutual burdens bear;

226 Raphael. S. M.

It gives us inward pain; But we shall still be joined in heart, And hope to meet again.

John Fawcett.


1. O Son of Man, Thy-self has proved Our trials and our tears;


Life's thankless toil and scant repose, Death's ag- o-nies and fears. A-MEN.

2 In all things like Thy brethren Thou

Wast made, yet free from sin;
Yet how unlike to us, O Lord;
Replies the voice within.

3 0 Son of God, in glory raised,
Thou sittest on Thy throne:

There by Thy pleadings and Thy grace
Still succoring Thine own.

4 Brother and Saviour, Friend and Judge, To Thee, O Christ, be given,

To bind upon Thy crown the names
Elect in earth and heaven.

1. God, in the gospel of His Son, Makes His eternal counsels known:

Where love in all its glory shines, And truth is drawn in fair-est lines. A-MEN.

2 Here sinners, of an humble frame,
May taste His grace and learn His name;
May read, in characters of blood,
The wisdom, power, and grace of God.

3 The prisoner here may break his chains,
The weary rest from all his pains,
The captive feel his bondage cease,
The mourner find the way of peace.

4 Here faith reveals to mortal eyes
A brighter world beyond the skies;
Here shines the light which guides our way
From earth to realms of endless day.

O grant us grace, Almighty Lord,
To read and mark Thy holy word;
Its truth with meekness to receive,
And by its holy precepts live.
Benjamin Beddome.


1 I love the sacred Book of God!
No other can its place supply;
It points me to His own abode;
It gives me wings and bids me fly.

2 Sweet Book! in thee my eyes discern
The very image of my Lord;
From thine instructive page I learn
The joys His presence will afford.

3 While I am here, these leaves supply
His place, and tell me of His love;
I read with faith's discerning eye,
And gain a glimpse of joys above.
4 I know in them the Spirit breathes
To animate His people here;
O may these truths prove life to all,
Till in His presence we appear!
Thomas Kelly.


The heavens declare Thy glory, Lord!
In every star Thy wisdom shines;
But, when our eyes bohold Thy word,
We read Thy name in fairer lines.

2 The rolling sun, the changing. light,
And nights and days Thy power confess;
But the blest volume Thou hast writ
Reveals Thy justice and Thy grace.
3 Sun, moon, and stars convey Thy praise
Round the whole earth, and never stand;
So, when Thy truth began its race,

It touched and glanced on every land. Nor shall Thy spreading gospel rest,

Till thro' the world Thy truth has run, Till Christ has all the nations blessed, That see the light, or feel the sun.

Isaac Watts, 1719.

1. Come, Thou Al-might-y King, Help us Thy name to sing, Help us to praise;


Father all glorious, O'er all victorious, Come, and reign
