8 Make us of one heart and mind,-
Courteous, pitiful, and kind;
Lowly, meek, in thought and word,
Altogether like our Lord.
4 Let us for each other care;
Each thelother's burden bear:
To thy Church the pattern give;
Show how true believers live,
5 Free from anger and from pride,
Let us thus in God abide;
All the depths of love express,
All the bergbts of boliness.
6 Let us then with joy remove
To the family above;
On the wings of angels fly;
Show how irue believers die.

7th P. M. 8 lines 28

Many, but one.
CHRIST, froin whom all blessings flow,
U Perfecting the saints below,
Hear iis, who thy nature share,
Who thy mystic body Ara.
Join us, in one spirit join;
Let us still receive of thine :
Still for more on thee we call,
Thou who fillest all in all.
2 More, and actuate, and guide :
Divers gifts to each divide :
Placed according to thy will,
Let us all our work fulfil:
Never from our office move :
Needful to ench other prove:
Let us daily growth receive,-
More and more in Jesus Livo.

8 Sweetly may we all agree,
Touch'd with softest sympathy;
Kindly for each other care;
Every member feel its share.
Many are we now and one,
We who Jesits have put on:
Nimes, and sects, and parties fall:
Thou, ó Christ, art all in all.

S. M.
Dleeting, after absence.
ND are we yet Alive,
Glory and pruise to Jesus give,

For his redeeming grace.
Preserved by power divine

To full salvation liere,
Aguin in Jesus' praise we join,
And in bis sight appear.

2 What troubles have we seen!

What conflicts have we past!
Fightings without, and fears within,

Since we assembled last!
But out of all the Lord

Hath brought us by his love;
And still he doth his help afford,

And hides our life above.

3 Then let us make our boast

Of his redeeming power,
Which saves us to the uttermost,

Till we can sin po more:
Let us take up the cross,

Till we the crown ohtain;
And gladly reckon all things loss,

So we may Jesus gain.

C. M.
We shall see Him as he is.
THE heavenly treasure now we have
But Christ will to the utmost save,

And keep us to that day.
Our souls are in his mighty hand,

And he shall keep them still;
And you and I shall surely stand

with him on Zion's hill. 3 Him eye to eye we there shall see;

Our face like his shall shine : O what a glorious coinpany,

When saints and angels join!
4 O what a joyful meeting there!

In robes of white array'd,
Palms in our hands we all shall bear,

And crowns upon our head.
5 Then let us lawfully contend,

Am fight our passage through; Bear in our faithful minds the end,

And keep the prize in view. 709

L. M. Welcome to Church fellowship. RETHREN in Christ, and well beloved, Enter, and show yourselves approved;

Enter, and find that God is here. 2 Welcome from earth : lo, the right hand

of fellowship to you we give; With open hearts and hands we stand,

And you in Jesus' name receive. 3 Jesus, attend; thyself reveal;

Are we not met in thy great nume! Thee in the midst we wait to feel;

We wait to catch the spreading lamo.

4 Truly our fellowship below

With thee and with the Father is :
In thee eternal life we know,

And heaven's unutterable bliss.
6 Though but in part we know thee here,

We wait thy coming from above;
And we shall then behold tbee near,

And be forever lost in love.

LOVE-FEAST. 710

L. M. The heavenly Guest invited. CAVIOUR of all, to thee we bow,

And own thee faithful to thy word; We bear thy voice, and open now

Our hearts to entertain our Lord.
2 Come in, come in, thou heavenly Guest;

Delight in what thyself hast given;
On thy own gifts and graces feast,

And make the contrite heart thy heaven. 3 Smell the sweet odour of our prayers;

Our sacrifice of praise approve;
And treasure up our gracious tears,

Who rest in thy redeeming love.
4 Beneath thy shadow let us sit;

Call us thy friends, and love, and bride, And bid us freely drink and eat

Thy dainties, and be satisfied.
711

A who join us by his gruce,

LL praise to our redeeming Lord,
And bids 118, each to each restored,

Together seek his face.

2 He bids us build 'each other up;

And, gather'd into one,
To our high calling's glorious hope,

We hand in hand go on.
8 The gift which he on one bestows,

We all delight to prove;
The grace through every vessel flows,

In purest streams of love.
4 E'en now we think and speak the same,

And cordially agree,-
United all, through Jesus' name,

In perfect barmony.
6 We all partake the jny of one;

The common peace we feel;
A pence to sensual minds unknown,

A joy unspeakable.
6 And if our fellowship below

In Jesus be so sweet,
What height of rapture shall we know

When round his hrone we meet!

Sympathy and mutual love,
LEST be the tie that binds
The fellowship of kindred minds

Is like to that above.
2 Before our Father's throne,

We pour our arlent prayers;
Our fenirs, our hopes, our aims are one -

Our comforts and our cares. 8 W, share our mutual woes;

Our mutual burdens bear; And often for ench other flows

The sympathizing tear.
