JESUS, delight of my soul,
My Saviour, my Shepherd divine, I yield to thy blessed control;
My body and spirit are thine : Thy love I can never deserve,
That bids me be happy in thee; My God and my King I will serve,
Whose favour is heaven to me.
2 How can I thy gondness repay,
By nature so weak and defiled! Myself I have given away;
O call me thine own blessed child: And art thou my Father above!
Will Jesus nbide in my heart! O bind me so fast with thy love,
That I never from thee shall depart.
u For all our youth we pray;
To walk in wisdom's way! 2 Now, in their early days,
Teach them thy will to know; O God, thy sanctifying grace
On every heart bestow!
The object of thy care ;
And My from every spure.
Renew by power divine; Unite them to thyself alone,
And make them wholly thine. 5 Lord, let thy sacred word
Their warmest thoughts employ; There let them daily find the road
Which leads to endless joy. 21
L. M. The youth's supplication. QUARDIAN of souls, throughout my days And let thy kindest love prevail, Though foés unite, and friends all fail. 2 By night and day, where'er I be, Be thru, my Saviour, near to me; In health or pain, in rest or toil, Give me thy kind, approving smile.
Who rul'st the world above;
of gratitude and love.
Our early vows we pay,
We thank thee for the day.
To us his word hath given;
The path that leads to heaven.
To guide our erring youth;
Where dwells eternal truth.
5th P. M. 4 lines 7.
Humbly supplicate thy throne ;
O thou great and holy One!
Make it thy beloved abode;
O my Father and my God!
Early know thy power and love;
Till I am removed above.
