[ocr errors][merged small][ocr errors][ocr errors]

God my Maker cares for me;
Gives me clothing, shelter, food,
Gives me all I have of good.
2 He will listen when I pray,
He is with me night and day;
When I sleep and when I wake,
Keeps me safe for Jesus' sake.
3 He who reigns above the sky
Once became as poor as l;
He whose blood for me was shed,
Had not where to lay his head !
4 Though I labour here awhile,
He will bless me with his smile;
And when this short life is past,
I shall rest with Him at last.

L. M.
Against evil words.
A cry,

Assist a child's infirmity;
Nor let me with my lips draw nigh,

While my heart wanders far from thee. 2 Ah! never let me speak & word

But what with all my soul I mean;
Or lie to thee, thou glorious Lord,

By whom my every thought is seen. 3 But with submissive lowliners

Should I approach thy glorious throne, How can I hope by words to please,

To please a God" I have not known! 4 I know not what to do or say,

Till thy bless'd Spirit I receive,
And Jesus teaches me to pray,

And Jesus teaches me to live.

9th P. M. 87, 87.
Jesus our strength.
JESUS, Lord of life and glory,

Friend of children, hear our lays;
Humbly would our souls adore thee,

Sing thy name in hymns of praise.
2 O what debtors to thy kindness

Are we, God of boundless love!
Thousands wander on in blindness,

Strangers to the light above.
3 Jesus, on thine arm relying,

We would tread this earthly vale;
Be our life when we are dying;

Be our strength, when strength shall fail. 4 Let us mount the hills of glory,

Far from sins, and woes, and pains;
There, in perfect songs, adore thee,

And in everlasting strains.

THE BIBLE. 33

27th P. M. 4 lines 11s.
The Bible, the word of truth.
THE
"HE Bible-the Biblemore precious than gold,

The hopes and the glories its pages unfolu;
It speaks of salvation--wide opens the door
Its offers are free to the rich and the poor.
2 The Bible--the Bible! blest volume of truth,
How sweetly it smiles on the season of youth;
It bids us seek early the" Pearl of great price,"
Ere the heart is enslaved in the bondage of vice.
8 The Bible-the Bible! the valleys shall ring,
And hill-tops re-echo the notes that we sing
Sur banners, inscribed with its precepts and rules,
Shall long wave in triumph, the joy of our schools.

P. M. 76, 86, 86, 86
IVe 'll not give up the Bible,
TE'LL not give up the Bible,


Th: blessed staff of boary age,

The guide of early youth:
The sun that sheds & glorious light

O'er every dreary road;
The voice that speaks a Saviour's love,

And calls us home to God.
2 We'll not give up the Bible,

For pleasure or for pain;
We'll buy the truth, and sell it not,

For all that we might gain :
Though man should try to take our priso

By guile or cruel might;
We'll suffer all that man could do,

And God defend the right!
3 We'll not give up the Bible,

But spread it far and wide,
Until its saving voice be heard

Beyond the rolling tide :
Till all shell know its gracious power,

And, with one voice and heart,
Resolve, that from God's sacred word,

We'll never, never part! 35

THAT I, like Timothy,
From mine early infancy,

Till for God mature I grow !
Made unto salvation wise,
Ready for the glorious prize!
9 Jesus, all-redeeming Lord,

Full of truth, and full of grace,
Make me understand thy word ;

Teach me in my youthful days Wonders in thy word to see, Wise through faith which is in thee. 3 Open thou mine eyes of faith;

Open now the book of God; Show me here the sacred path,

Leading to thy blest abode; Wisdom from above impart, Speak the meaning to my heart.
