In seas of heavenly rest,
And not a wave of trouble roll
Across my peaceful breast.

No cause for fear.
COD is my strong salvation;
UWhat foe have I to lear!
In darkness and temptation,

Though hosts encamp around me,
Firin in the fight í stand;
What terror can confound me,
With God at my right hand!

When faint and desolate;

When all niy warfare 's past;
And, dying, find my latest foe
Under my feet at last!

Just as the port is gain'd, .
Kept by the power of grace divine,

Nor all the saints in heaven.

And binds the earth be glad :
Ye sons of men, rejoice
In Jesus' nighty" love;
Lift up your heari, lift up your voice,
To Him who rules above.

Kiss the exaltet Sori,
Who died, and lives to die no more,
High on his Father's throne :
Our Advocate with God,
He undertakes our cause,
And spres.ds through all tho earth : Divat
The vict'ry of his cross.
Victory is on the Lord's side.
RISE, ye saints, arise !
The foe before his banner flies,
And yictory is His.

Our Saviour, and our King;
We follow thee, through grace supplied
From heaven's eternal spring.

When all our toils shall cease;
When we shall cast our arms away
And dwell in endless peace.

It makes our burdens light:
'Twill serve our drooping hearts to cheer,
Till faith shall end in sight:-
5 Till, of the prize possess'd,
We hear of war no more;
And ever with our Leader rest,
On yonder peaceful shore.

Crowns cast at the feet of Jesus.
TARK! how the gospel trumpet sounds,
As through the world the echo bounds,
rroclaiming to a ruin'd race,
That through the riches of His grace,
Sinners may see the Saviour's face,
In endless day.
2 Hail, Jesus ! fall-victorious Lord !
Be thou by all mankind adored !
For ng didst thou the fight maintain,
And o'ur our foes the vict'ry gain,
That we, with thee, might ever reign,
In endless day.

The glory of thy kingdom share,
With thee, our glorious leader, there,
In endless day.

In loftier strains thy praise we'll sing,
When with the blood-bought hosts we meet,
Triumphant there, in bliss complete,
And cast our crowns before thy feet,
In endless day.

S strangers here below,
With various woes orpress'd,
We must throngh tribulation go
To our eternal rest.
2 Thus Christ, our glorious Head,
Ascended to his throne
Why should his servants fear to tread
The way their Lord has gone !
3 The path to glory lies
Through conflict and distress :
But joyful we at length shall rise,
The kingdom to possess.
1st P. M. 6 lines 88. Christ our pattern and example.
What hast thou suffer'd on the tree !
Why didst thou gronn thy mortal groan,
Obedient unto death for me!
The mystry of thy passion show,-
The end of all thy griefs below.
2 Pardon, and grace, and heaven to buy,
My bleeding sacrifice expired;
But didst thou not my pattern die,
That, by thy glorious Spirit fired,
Faithful to death I might endure,
And make the crown by suff'ring sure !
3 Thou didst the meek example leave,
That I might in thy footsteps trend;
Might like the Man of Sorrowa grieve,
And groan, and bow with thee my Hesd
Thy dying in my body bear,
And all thy state of suff'ring share.

And tills us with fears, we triumph by faith;

Our trust is all thrown on Jesus's Name;
In this our strong tower for sately we hide
The Lord is our power,-The Lord will provido.
6. When life sinks apace, and death is in view,
The word of his grace shall comfort us through:
Not fearing or doubting, with Christ on our side,
We hope to die shouting, -The Lord will provide
Light shining out of darkness,
CON moves in a mysterious way,
He plants his footsteps in the sea,
And rides upon the storm,
