206. OH for a closer walk with God, Return, O Holy Dove, return, A calm and heavenly frame;

Sweet messenger of rest! A light, to shine upon the road

I hate the sins that made Thee mourn, That leads me to the Lamb!

And drove Thee from my breast. What peaceful hours I once enjoy'd ! The dearest idol I have known, How sweet their memory still !

Whate'er that idol be,
But they have left an aching void Help me to tear it from Thy throne,
The world can never fill.

And worship only Thee.
So shall my walk be close with God,

Calm and serene my frame;
So purer light shall mark the road

That leads me to the Lamb.

YAPTAIN of Israel's host, and Guide

Of all who seek their home above,
Beneath Thy shadow we abide,

The cloud of Thy protecting love ;
Our strength Thy grace, our rule Thy Word,
Our end the glory of the Lord.
By Thine unerring Spirit led,

We shall not in the desert stray;
By Thy paternal bounty fed

We shall not lack in all our way;
As far from danger as from fear,
While thine Almighty love is near.

208. THOU art the Way,—to Thee alone

From sin and death we flee; And he who would the Father seek,

Must seek Him, Lord, by Thee.
Thou art the Truth, Thy Word alone

True wisdom can impart ;
Thou only canst inform the mind,

And purify the heart.
Thou art the Life,—the rending tomb

Proclaims Thy conquering arm;
And those who put their trust in Thee

Nor death nor hell shall harm.
Thou art the Way, the Truth, the Life;

Grant us that way to know,
That truth to keep, that life to win

Whose joys eternal flow.

Though years on years

roll on,
His covenant shall endure ;
Though clouds and darkness hide His path,

The promised grace is sure.
Through waves, and clouds, and storms

will clear thy way:
Wait thou His time—the darkest night
Shall end in brightest day.
