2 Has thy night been long and mournful, | 3 God, thy God, will now restore thee,

All thy friends unfaithful proved? He Himself appears thy friend; Have thy foes been proud and scornful, All thy foes shall flee before thee, By thy sighs and tears unmoved? Here their boasts and triumphs end; Cease thy mourning;

Great deliverance Zion still is well-beloved.

Zion's King will quickly send.

2 I was not ever thus, nor prayed that Thou

Shouldst lead me on;
I loved to choose and see my path; but now

Lead Thou me on!
I loved the garish day,

and, spite of fears,
Pride ruled my will. Remember not past years.
3 So long Thy power hath blessed ine, sure it still

Will lead me on
O’er moor and fen, o'er crag and torrent, till

The night is gone,
And with the morn those angel faces smile
Which I have loved long since, and lost awhile.

John H. Newman.

Tune:-MISSIONARY HYMN. 2 Shall we, whose souls are lighted 3 Waft, waft, ye winds, His story, With wisdom from on high,

And you, ye waters, roll,
Shall we, to men benighted,

Till, like a sea of glory,
The lamp of life deny?

It spreads from pole to pole;
Salvation! 0 salvation!

Till o'er our ransomed nature The joyful sound proclaim,

The Lamb for sinners slain, Till earth’s remotest nation

Redeemer, King, Creator, Has learned Messiah's name,

In bliss returns to reign!

Reginald Heber.

2 My Jesus, as Thou wilt!

Though seen through many a tear, Let not my star of hope

Grow dim or disappear;
Since Thou on earth hast wept,

And sorrowed oft alone,
If I must weep with Thee,

My Lord, Thy will be done!

3 My Jesus, as Thou wilt!

All shall be well for me;
Each changing future scene

I gladly trust with Thee:
Straight to my home above

I travel calmly on,
And sing, in life or death,
My Lord, Thy will be done!

2 Every eye shall now behold Him, 3 Yea, Amen; let all adore Thee, Robed in dreadful majesty;

High on Thine eternal throne: Those who set at naught and sold Him, Saviour, take the power and glory; Pierced, and nailed Him to the tree, Claim the kingdom for Thine own. Deeply wailing,

O come quickly,
Shall the true Messiah see.

Hallelujah! Come, Lord, come.

Charles Wesley, alt. 287 Jesus, I my Cross have Taken. 1 Jesus, I my cross have taken, 3 Man may trouble and distress me, All to leave and follow Thee:

'Twill but drive me to Thy breast: Naked, poor, despised, forsaken, Life with trials hard may press me,

Thou, from hence, my all shalt be: Heaven will bring me sweeter rest. Perish every fond ambition,

O'tis not in grief to harm me, All I've so’t, and hoped, and known: While Thy love is left to me. Yet how rich is my condition,

O'twere not in joy to charm me, God and heaven are still my own! Were that joy unmixed with Thee. 2 Let the world despise and leave me, 4 Know, my soul, Thy full salvation;

They have left my Saviour, too: Rise o’er sin, and fear, and care:
Human hearts and looks deceive me, Joy to find in every station
Thou art not, like man, untrue;

Something still to do or bear.
And, while Thou shalt smile upon me, Think what Spirit dwells within thee:
God of wisdom, love and might,

What a Father's smile is thine: Foes may hate,and friends may shun me; What a Saviour died to win thee:

Show Thy face, and all is bringt. Child of heaven, shouldst thou repine!

With all our tears away.
The praises of Thy royal name,
And own Thee as their King.

No loveliness we see; 3 Hope of our hearts, O Lord, appear, Our eye is on the royal crown, Thou glorious Star of day!

2 Come! for creation groans,

Impatient of Thy stay,
Worn out with these long years of ill,

These ages of delay.
3 Come, and make all things new;

Build up this ruined earth,

Restore our faded Paradise,

Creation's second birth!
4 Come, and begin Thy reign

Of everlasting peace,
Come, take the kingdom to Thyself,
Great King of Righteousness!

Horatius Bonar.
