INDEX OF FIRST LINES.

A BRIGHT unfading crown doth grace
Absent from flesh! O blissful thought
Again the Lord of life and light .
A glory gilds the sacred page
All-hail the power of Jesus' name!
Almighty maker of my frame
Am I a soldier of the cross
And must this body die .
Another fleeting day is gone
Another six days' work is done .
Awake, my soul, and with the sun
Awake, my soul ! lift up thine eyes
Awake, my soul! stretch every nerve -
Awake, my zeal, awake, my love
Awake, our souls! away our fears

BEFORE Jehovah's awful throne Begin, my soul, the exalted lay . Behold, the blind their sight receive Behold! the lofty sky · Behold the morning sun Behold the sure foundation stone Be joyful in God, all ye lands of the earth Bless, O my soul, the living God Blest are the sons of peace Blest be the tie that binds Blest is the man who shuns the place Brightest and best of the sons of the morning Bright was the guiding star that led CALLED by the Sabbath bells away . Calm on the listening ear of night Can creatures, to perfection, find Come, Gracious Spirit, Heavenly Dove Come Holy Spirit come

Come, Holy Spirit, Heavenly Dove -
Come, let us join our cheerful songs
Come, sound his praise abroad -
Come, weary souls, with sins distressed
Come we that love the Lord

-
Come, ye disconsolate, where'er ye languish

[ocr errors]

DAUGHTER of Zion, awake from thy sadness
Do not I love thee, O my Lord -
Dread Sovereign, let my evening song
EARLY, my God, without delay

FAR from the world, O Lord, I flee
Father of mercies, in thy word ..
Father of our feeble race - -
Frequent the day of God returns
From all that dwell below the skies
From Greenland's icy mountains

GIVE me the wings of faith, to rise
Give thanks to God most high .
Give to the winds thy fears
Glorious things of thee are spoken
Glory to thee, my God, this night
God is the refuge of his saints -
God moves in a mysterious way -
God of eternity, from thee - -
God of my life, through all its days
God of the morning, at whose voice
Go watch and pray: thou canst not tell
Go when the morning shineth - -
Grace !-'tis a charming sound -
Great God, the heavens' well ordered frame .
Great God, the nations of the earth
Great God, to thee my evening song -
Great God, we sing that mighty hand -
Great is the Lord our God ..
Guide me, O thou great Jehovah - -

HAPPY the city, where their sons
Happy the heart, where graces reign -
Happy the man, who finds the grace
Hark the glad sound! the Savior comes
High in the heavens, eternal God -
How beauteous are their feet
How blest the righteous when he dies
How charming is the place -
How dark is this world! that above us how bright
How.did my heart rejoice to hear
How oft, alas! this wretched heart
How pleasant, how divinely fair-
How pleased and blest was I -
How precious is the book divine
How vain are all things here below

I'LL praise my Maker with my breath
I love the volumes of thy word
I love thy kingdom, Lord - -
I love to steal awhile away -
In all my vast concerns with thee
I send the joys of earth away
Is there ambition in my heart
I would not live alway: I ask not to stay

JEHOVAH reigns! he dwells in light.
Jesus! and shall it ever be -
Jesus, I my cross have taken
Jesus, Lover of my soul - .
Jesus shall reign where'er the sun
Joy is a fruit that will not grow -
Joy to the world! the Lord is come

[blocks in formation]

LADEN with guilt, and full of fears
Lauded be thy name forever
Let all the earth their voices raise
Let party names no more -
Like Noah's weary dove -
Lord, dismiss us with thy blessing
Lord, how delightful 'tis to see ..
