2a P. M. 6 lines 88. Crucified with Christ. Home and teachable, and mild,

My lowly Master's steps pursue !
Be anger to my soul unknown;
Hate, envy, jealousy, be gone;

In love create thou all things new.
2 Let earth no more my heart divide;
With Christ may I be crucified;

To thee with my whole heart aspire :
Dead to the world and all its toys,
Its idle pomp, and fading joys,

Be thou alone my one desire.
3 My will be swallow'd up in thee;
Light in thy light still may I see,

Beholding thee with open face;
Call'd the full power of faiths to prove,
Let all my hallow'd heart be love,

And all my spotless life be praise.
4 Come, Holy Ghost, all-quick’ning fire
My consecrated heart inspire,

Sprinkled with the stoning blood :
Still to my soul thyself reveal :
Thy mighty working may I feel,

And know that I am one with God.

C. M.
The sojourner; at the feet of Jesus.
COD of all grace and majesty,
U Supremely great and good,
If I have mercy found with thee

Through the atoning blood;
The guard of all thy mercies give,

And to my pardon join
A fear lest I should ever grieve

The Comforter divine.

2 If mercy is indeed with thee,

May I obedient prove,
Nor e'er abuse my liberty,

Or sin against thy love:
This cho'cest fruit of faith bestow

On a poor sojourner;
And let me pass my days below

In humbleness and fear.
8 Still may I walk as in thy sight;

My strict observer see;
And thou, by rev'rent love, unite

My child-like heart to thee:
Still let me, till my days are past,

At Jesus' feet abide :
So shall he lift me up at last,

And seat me by his side.

1st P. M. 6 lines 88. Pilgrims and strangers ; homeward bound EADER of faithful souls, and guide

I ,
Come, and with us, e'en us, abide,

Who would on thee alone rely;
On thee alone our spirits stay,
While held in life's uneven way.
2 Strangers and pilgrims here below,

This earth, we know, is not our place;,
But basten through the vale of wo,

And, restless to behold thy face,
Swift to our heavenly country move,
Our everlasting home above.
3 We've no abiding city here,

But seek a city out of sight;
Thither our steady course we steer,

Aspiring to the plains of light -Jerusalem, the saints abode, Whose founder is the living God.

4 Patient the appointed race to run,

This weary world we cast behind; From strength to strength we travel on,

The New Jerusalem to find : Our labour this, our only aiin, To find the New Jerusalem. 5 Through thee, who all our sins hast bone,

Freely and graciously forgiven,
With songs to Zion we return,

Contending for our native heaven;
That palace of our glorious King,
We find it nearer while we sing.
6 Raised by the breath of love divine,

We urge our way, with strength renew'd; The church of the first-born to join,

We travel to the mount of God:
With joy upon our leads arise,
And meet our Saviour in the skies.

5th P. M. 4 lines 7s.

The pilgrim's song,
HILDREN of the heavenly King,

As we journey let us sing;.
Sing our Saviour's worthy praise,
Glorious in his works and ways.
2 We are trav’ling home to God,
In the way our fathers trod;
They are happy now, and wa
Soon their happiness shall see.
30 ye banish'd seed, be glad;
Christ our Advocate is made :
Us to save our flesh assues,
Brotber to our soul becomes.
4 Fear not, brethren, joyful stand
On the borders of our land;
Jesus Christ, our Father's Son,
Bida va undispav'd go on.

5 Lord ! obediently we'll go, Gladly leaving all below : Only thou our leader be, And we still will follow thee. 839

C. M. God's pavilion. TRANT me within thy courts & place, U Among thy saints a seat, Forever to behold thy face,

And worship at thy feet 2 In thy pavilion to abide,

When storms of trouble blow, And in thy tebernacle hide,

Secure from every foe. 3 Seek ye my face :-without delay,

When thus I hear thee speak, My heart would leap for joy, and 887,

Thy face, Lord, will I seek. 4 Then leave me not when griefs assail

, And earthly comforts flee; When father, mother, kindred fail,

My God I remember me. 810

Your life is kid with Christ in God. TE faithful souls, who Jesus know, Superior to the joys below,

His resurrection's power declare. 2 Your faith by holy tempers prove :

By actions show your sins forgiven : And seek the glorious things above,

And follow Christ your head to heaven. 3 There your exalted Saviour see,

Seated at God's right hand again, In all bis Father's majesty,

In everlasting pomp to reign.

L. M.

4 To him continually aspire,

Contending for your native place;
And emulate the angel choir,

And only live to love and praise,
5 For who by faith your Lord receive,

Ye nothing seek or want beside ;
Dead to the world and sin ye live;

Your creature-love is crucified,
6 Your real life, with Christ conceal'd,

Deep in the Father's bosom lies; And glorious as your Head reveal'd,

Ye soon shall meet himn in the skies.

S. M.
Now we see through a glass, darkly.
TTK w portions we cannot trace;
Nor solve, O Lord, the mystery

Of thy unbounded grace.
2 Here the dark veils of sense

Our captive souls surround;
Mysterious deeps of providence

Our wond'ring thoughts confound. 3 As through a glass we see

The wonders of thy love;
How little do we know of thee,

Or of the joys above!
4 In part we know thy will,

And bless thee for the sight:
Soon will thy love the rest reveal

In glory's clearer light.
6 With joy shall we survey

Thy providence and grace;
And spend an everlasting day

In wonder, love, and praisa.
