The morning the Saviour arose from the tomt
5th P. M. 4 lines 78. Welcome, day of rest.
To the world in kindness given; Welcome to this humble brenst,
As the beaming light from heaven. 2 Day of soft and sweet repose,
Gently now thy moments run, As the peaceful streamlet flows,
Radiant with a summer's sun. 3 Day of tidings from the skies,
Day of solemn praise and prayer, Day to make the simple wise,
O how great thy blessings are ! 4 Welcome, welcome, day of rest,
With thy influence all divine; Mny thy hallow'd hours be blest
To this feeble heart of mine.

Is fading fast away;
To crown the closing day!
Of fruitless time destroy'd?
Been sacredly employ'd !
O may we never dare;
These sacred days of prayer:
Inspire our hearts with love;
Of that sweet rest above,
-: Give to our youthful hearts thy fear,
And perfect righteousness.
And all our fears remove;
The kindlings of thy love.
And may our infant tongues
And full of cheerful songs.
Receive each child as thine; And O, regard our youthful claim,
With benefits divine. 42

S. M. The infant school. WITHIN these walls be peace,
Love through our borders found, In all our youthful palaces
Prosperity abound. 2 God scorns not humble things;
Here, though the proud despise, The children of the king of kings
Are training for the skies,
P. M. 64, 64, 67, 64.
Bright, bright as day:
Come, come away;
Why still delay!
Benms every eye
Love cannot die.
