4 There I shall bathe my weary soul

In seas of heavenly rest, And not a wave of trouble roll

Across my peaceful breast. 737 26th P. M. 76, 76, 76, 76.

No cause for fear. COD is my strong salvation;

u What foe have I to fear! In darkness and temptation,

My light, my help, is near: Though høsts encamp around me,

Firm in the fight I stand; What terror can confound me,

With God at my right hand! 2 Place on the Lord reliance;

My soul, with courage wait;
His truth be thine atliance,

When faint and desolate;
His might thy heart shall strengthen,

His love thiy jay inerense :
Mercy thy days shall lengthen;

The Lord will give the peace. 738

. Victory.
I THEO Geht heel sought

Oben shall I declare!
The vict'ry by my Saviour got,

I long with Paul to share. 20 may I triumph so,

When all nig warfare 's past; And, dying, find my latest foe

Under my feet at list!
3 This blessed word be mine,

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

I have the haith maintain'd.

Nor all the saints in heaven.

And binds the earth be glad :

Who died, and lives to die no more,

High on his Father's throne :

Anıl spres.ds through all the earth : Divond

The vict'ry of his cross.

The Lord our leader is;
The foe before his banner flies,

And victory is His.
2 We follow thee, our Guide,

Our Saviour, and our King;
We follow thee, through grace supplied

From heaven's eternal spring.
8 We soon shall see the day

When all our toils shall cease;
When we shall cast our arms away

And dwell in endless peace.

PATIES

4 This hope supports us here;

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.
9 Hail, Jesus ! all-victorious Lord !
Be thou by all mankind adored!
For 118 didst thou the fight maintain,
And o'er our foes the vict'ry gain,
Thut we, with thee, might ever reign,

In endless day.
3 And when, through grace, our course is run,
The battle fought, the vict'ry won,
Then crowns unfading we shall wear,
The glory of thy kingdom share,
With thee, our glorious leader, there,

In endless day.
Then, in thy presence, heavenly King,
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.

PATIENCE AND RESIGNATION,
742

S. M.
Tribulation to be expected.
AS
strangers here below;

With various woes oppressid,
We must through 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. CAVIOUR of all, what hast thou done!

'
Why didst thou gronn thy mortal groun,

Obedient unto death for me!
The myst'ry 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 erdure,
And make the crown by sufl'ring sure !
8 Thou didst the meek example leave,

That I might in thy footsteps trend;
Might like the Man of Sorrows grieve,

And groan, and bow with thee my Head
Thy dying in my body bear,
And all thy state of suff'ring share.

Our trust is ill thrown on Jesus's Name;
In this our strong tower for salety we hide
The Lord is our power,- The Lord will provide.

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
