1119 3d P. M. 4 68 & 2 88.

Parting ;-10 meet again.
JESUS, accept the praise

That to thy Name belongs ;
Matter of all our lays,

Subject of all our songs;
Througli thee we now together came,
And part exulting in th; Name.
2 In flesh we part awhile,

But still in spirit join'd,
To embrace the happy toil

Thou hast to ench assign'd;
And while we do thy blessed will,
We bear our heaven about us still
3 O let us thus go on

In all thy pleasant ways,
And, arnı'd with patience, run

With joy the appointed race :
Keep us and every seeking soul,
Till all attain the heavenly goal.
4 There we shall meet again,

When all our toils are o'er,
And death, and grief, and pain,

And parting are no more :
We shall with all our brethren rise,
And see thee in the faming skies.
50 happy, happy day,

That calls thy exiles home;
The heavens shall pass away,

The earth receive its doom :
Earth we shall view, and heaven, destroy'd,
And shout above the fiery void.

6 Acoording to his word,

His oath, to sinners given,
We look to see restored

The ruin'd earth and heaven;
In a new world his truth to prove,
A world of righteousness and love.
7 Then let us wait the sound

That shall our souls release,
And labour to be found

or him in spotless peace : In perfect holiness renew'd, Adorn'd with Christ, and ineet for God, '1120

C. M. Separated, but inseparable. COD of all consolation, take

The glory of thy grace;
Thy gifts to thee we render back

In ceaseless songs of praise. 2 Through thee we now together camo,

In singleness of heart;
We met, o Jesus, in thy Name,

And in thy Name we part.
3 We part in body, not in mind;

Our ininds continue one;
And each to each in Jesus join'd,

We hand in hand go on.
4 Subsists as in us all one soul;

No power can make us twnin; And mountains rise, and oceans roll,

To sever us in vain. 5 Present we still in spirit are,

And intimately nigh; While on the wings of faith and prayer

We to each other fly.

6. Our life is hid with Christ in God;

Our Life shall soon appear,
And shed his glory all abroad

On all his members here.

C. M.
United,-though separated,
DIEST be the dear uniting love,
D. That will not let us part:
Our bodies may far off remove,

We still are one in henrt.
2 Join'd in one spirit to our Head,

Where he appoints we go;
And still in Jesus' footsteps tread,

And show his praise below,
3 O may we ever walk in him,

And nothing know beside,
Nothing desire, nothing esteem,

But Jesus crucified.
4Closer and closer let us cleave
- To his beloved embrace ;
Expect his fulness to receive,

And grace to answer grace.
5 Partakers of the Saviour's grace,

The same in mind and heart,
Nor joy, nor grief, nor time, nor place,

Nör lite, nur death can part.
6 Then let us hasten to the day

Which shall our flesh restore ;
When death shall all be done away,

And bodies purt no more.

5th P. M. 4 lines 78.
Tribute of praise 'at parting.
CHRISTIANS, brethren, ere we part,

Every voice and every beart
Join, and to our Father raise
One last hymn of grateful praise.
