, ,
Delighting in Thy perfect will;
Each other's burdens learn to bear,

And thus Thy law of love fulfil.
He that hath pity on the poor

Lendeth his substance to the Lord ;
And lo! his


For more than this shall be restored.
Teach us, with glad, ungrudging heart,

As Thou hast bless'd our various store,
From our abundance to impart

A liberal portion to the poor,
To Thee our all devoted be,

In whom we breathe, and move, and live ;
Freely we have received of Thee,

Freely may we rejoice to give.

166. FOUNTAIN of good! to own Thy love

What can we render, Lord, to Thee,

When all the worlds are Thine ?
But Thou hast needy brethren here,

Partakers of Thy grace;
Whose humble name Thou wilt confess

Before Thy Father's face.
In them Thou may'st be clothed and fed,

And visited and cheer'd ;
And in their accents of distress

Thy pleading voice is heard.
Thy face, with reverence and with love,

We in Thy poor would see;
For while we minister to them,

We do it, Lord, to Thee.

Lord, who once our weakness' knew,

Born in this vale of tears,
In wisdom as in stature grew,

In favour as in years.
And as He bare our humble lot,

Mankind from sin to free,
In mercy said, “ Forbid them not,

Let children come to Me."
May we, O Lord, betimes obey

The call Thy grace has given,
And still pursue the narrow way

That leads our steps to heaven.
Though Angels round Thy throne on high

Their hymns of triumph raise,
Thou hearest when to Thee we cry,

Thou wilt not scorn our praise.
