3 Let me no more, in deep complaint,

My leanness, O my leanness! cry; Alone consumed with pining want,

Of all my Father's children 1.
4 The painful thirst, the fond desire,

Thy joyous presence shall remove;
But my full soul shall still requira
A whole eternity of love.

L. M
The well of living water.
JESUS; the gift divine I know,

The gift divine I ask of thee; The living water now bestow,

Thy Spirit and thyself, ou me. 2 For thou of life the fountain art, None else can give or take away may I find it in my heart, And with me may it ever stay. 3 Thus may I drink,--and thirst no more

For drops of finite happiness; Spring up, O well, in beavenly power,

In streams of pure perennial peace. 828

C. M. Strength renewed by wailing upon the Lord.

ORD, I believe thy every word,

Thy every promise true;
And lo! I wait on thee, ing Lord,

Till I my strength renew.
2 If in this feeble flesh I may

Awhile show forth thy praise, Jesiis, support the tolt'ring clay,

And lengthen out my days.
8 If such a worm as I can spread

The common Saviour's name,
Let Him who ruised thee from the dead,

quicken my mortal frame.

4 Still let me live thy blood to show,

Which purges every stain;
And gladly linger ouť below

A few more years in pain.

you,
the hope of glory.

, Whose depth unfathom’d, no man knows: I see from far tly, beauteous light;

Inly I sigh for thy repose :
My heart is paindl, nor can it be
At rest, till it finds rest in thee.
9 Is there a thing beneath the sun,

That strives with thee my heart to share 1
Ah, tear it thence, and reign alone,

The Lord of every motion there;
Then shall my heart from earth be free,
When it bath found repose in thee.
3 0 hide this self from me, that I

No more, but Christ in me, may live;
My vile affections crucify,

Nor let one darling lust survive;
In all things nothing may I see,
Nothing desire or seek, but thee.
4 Love, thy sov'reign aid impart,

To save me from low-thoughied care;
Chase this self-will through all my heart,

Through all its latent mazes there :
Make me thy duteous child, thai I,
Ceaseless, may Abba, Father, cry.
5 Each moment draw from earth away

My heart, that lowly waits thy call;
Speak to my inmest soul, and say

I am thy love, thy God, thy all!
Tu feel thy power, to hear thy voice,
To taste tlıy love, be all my choice.

1. wait thy guiding hund to feel; To hear and keep thy every word,

To prove and do thy perfect will:
Joyful from my own works to cease,
Glad to fulfil all righteousness.
2 And if thy grace vouchsafe to use,

The meapest of thy creatures, me, The deed, the time, the manner choose;

Let all my fruit be found of thee : Let all my works in thee be wroughtBy thee to full perfection brought. 3 My every weak, though good design,

O'errule or change, as seems thee meet; Jesus, let all my work be thine!

Thy work, o Lord, is all complete, And pleasing in thy Father's sight; Thou only hast done all things right. 4 Here, then, to thee thine own I leave;

Mvuld as thou wilt thy passive clay; But let me all thy stamp receive,

But let me all thy words obey :
Serve with a single heart and eye,
And to thy glory live and die.

And still their own deny: To follow his command,

Ou earth as pilgrims rove, And seek an undiscover'd land,

And house and friends above.

2 Father, the narrow path

To that far country show;
And in the steps of Abrah'm's faith

Enable me to go:
* A cheerful sojourner

Where'er thou bidd'st me roam,
Till, guided by thy Spirit here,

I reach my heavenly home.

The pilgrim's guide and guardian.
YUIDE me, 0 thou great Jehovah,
I am weak--but thon art mighty ;
Hold me with thy powerful hand :

Bread of heaven,
Feed me till I want no more.
2 Open now the crystal fountain,

Whence the healing waters flow;
Let the fiery, cloudy pillar,
Lead me all my journey through:

Strong Delivrer,
Be thou still my strength and shield.
3 When I tread the verge of Jordan,

Bid my anxious fears subside :
Bear me through the swelling current;
Land me safe on Canaan's side;

Songs of praises
I will ever give to thee.

TESUS, thy boundless love to me

No thought can reach, no tongue declare;
O knit my thankful heart to thee,

And reign without a rival there :
Thine wholly, thine alone, I am;
Be thou alone my constant flame.

2 O grant that nothing in my soul

May dwell, but thy pure love alone : O may thy love possess me whole

My joy, my treasure, and my crown: Strange flames far from my heart remove; My every act, word, thought, be love. 3 Unwearied may I this pursue ;

Dauntless to the high prize aspiro;
Hourly within my soul renew

This holy name, this heavenly fire:
And day and night, be all my care
To guard the sacred treasure there.
4 In suff'ring be thy love my peace;

In weakness be thy love my power; And when the stornis of life shall cease,

Jesus, in that important hour,,
In denth as life be thou my guide,
And save me, who for me hast died.

And an immortal crown. 2 'Tis God's all-animating voice

That calls thee from on high ; 'Tis he wbose hand presents the priso

To thine Aspiring eye. 8 A cloud of witnesses around

Held thee in full survey; Forget the steps already trod,

And onward urge thy way.

Our race bave we begun;
And, crown'd with vict'ry, at thy feet

We'll lay our trophies down,
