The Master's blessed will;
And serve his pleasure still.
I choose the better part,
But loving Mary's heart. ? Though careful, without care I am,
Nor feel my happy toil,Preserved in peace by Jesus' Name,
Supported by his smile : Rejoicing thus my faith to show,
His service my reward ; While every work I do below,
I do it to the Lord. 30! that the world the art might know
Of living thus to thee;
And here thy glory see;
To exercise their grace,
And see thy glorious face. 808
Self-dedication to the Lord.
From God no longer roam;
His goouness calls thee home. 2. What shall I render unto thee,
My Saviour in distress, For all thy benefits to me,
So great and numberless ?
3 This will I do for thy love's sake,
And thus thy power proclaim;
And call upon thy Name.
Hear and record my vow,
And at thine altar bow -
With single heart and eye
And bless thee when I die.
, Still with thy grace and truth surround,
And arm me with thy Spirit's might. 20 may I hear thy warning voice,
And timely fly from danger near;
And love thee with a filial fear:
And suffer not my feet to slide :
And comfort me on every side.
Finish the work begun in me;
And let me always rest on thee.
S. M. Fear of offending God.
On me this gracious fear,
2 And that I never more
May from thy ways depart, Enter, with all thy mercy's power,
And dwell within my heart. 811
: My all, thy property I own;
The steward of the Lord. 2 Confiding wholly in thy love,
Through Jesus strength'ning me, I wait thy faithfulness to prove,
And give back all to thee.
Thy blessings I restore ;
I praise thee evermore. 812
Not ashamed of the Gospel. M not ashamed to own my Lord,
, Maintain the honour of his word,
The glory of his cross.
His name is all my trust;
Nor let my hope be lost.
And he can well secure
Till the decisive hour.
Before his Father's face, And in the New Jerusalem
Appoint my soul & place.
A mortal man ashamed of thee!
Or at thy table meet.
I wait to learn thy will:
And hear thee say,- Be still!
'Tis all I live to know;
And spread its praise below.
Thine image to retrieve;
And gasp in thee to live.
And wait thy will to prove; My Potter, stamp on me, thy clay,
Thine only stamp of love : Be this my whole desire;
I know that it is thine; Then kindle in my soul a fire
Which shall forever shine. 2 O plant in me thy mind;
o fix in me thy home; So shall I cry to all mankind,
Come to the waters, come.
To all his bowels move;
That God is only love. 816
L.M Living to the glory of God. THOU! who hast at thy coinmand
The hearts of all men in thy band; Our wayward, erring hearts incline To bave no other will but thine. 2 Our wishes, our desires, control; Mould every purpose of the soul; O'er all may we victorious prove That stands between us and thy love. 3 Thrice blest will all our blessings be, When we can look through them to thee; When each glad heart its tribute pays of love, and gratitude, and praise. 4 And while we to thy glory live, May we to thee all glory give, Until the final summons come, That calls thy willing servants home.
