Nor shrink thy harshest truths t' unfold, But more than meet the gath'ring storm. 3 Adverse to earth's rebellious throng, Still may I turn my fearless face; Stand as an iron pillar strong,
And steadfast as a wall of brass.
4 Give me thy might, thou God of pow'r, Then let, or men, or fiends assail; Strong in thy strength, I'll stand a tow'r, Impregnable to earth or hell.
Hymn 216. C. M.
Therefore behold, I will this once cause them to know mine hand, and my might. Jer, xvi. 21.
NCE more we come before our God,
O may not duty seem a load,
Nor worship prove a task.
2 Father, thy quick'ning Spirit send
3 May we receive the word we hear,
And keep the precious treasure there,
4 To seek thee all our hearts dispose;
And let the seed thy servant sows,
Hymn 217. C. M.
Nevertheless I am not ashamed.
2 Tim. i. 12.
1 M not asham'd to own my Lord,
Maintain the honour of his word,
2 Jesus, my God! I know his name;
3 Firm as his throne his promise stands,
4 Then will he own my humble name
And in the new Jerusalem
HEPHERD of souls, the great, the good,
S Who on thy servant's side hast stood,
And blest my ministry;
The flock receiv'd from thee.
2 Beneath thy wings, their sure defence,
Thy most distinguish'd care;
ON THE SPREAD OF THE GOSPEL All the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God. Isa. lii, 10.

Hymn 219. L. M.
For Zion's sake will I not hold my peare. Isaiah lxii. 1.
REMEMBER, Lord, the pious zeal
Of every soul that cleaves to thee,
Their eager hopes thy house to see.
And count them worthy of their Lord, 3 We too the joyful sound have heard, That God is coming to his place; Here in this wilderness prepar'd,
Our Lord his ruin'd church shall raise.
5 Thy priests be cloth'd with righteousness,
6 Renew'd and sanctified by grace, The pillars shall no more remove; A holy, chosen, happy race,
Enthron'd in everlasting love.
Hymn 220. P. M.
So mightily grew the word of God. Acts xix. 20.
Skindled by a spark of grace!
Jesu's love the nations fires,
Sets the kingdoms in a blaze:
Sin's strong-bold it now o'erthrows,
Jesus, mighty to redeem,
He alone the work bath wrought; Worthy is the work of him,
Flim who spake a world from nought:
4 Saw ye not the cloud arise,
Hymn 221. L. M.
Thou shalt arise and have mercy upon Zion; for the time to favour her is come. Psalm cii. 13.
1 OR lo! the Lord a seed hath chose,
His own peculiar people those,
2 Zion, he saith, my rest shall be;
3 I will increase their gracious store;
And fill their souls with living bread.
With garments of salvation deck
Her priests, and clothe with robes of praise. Her saints their joy aloud shall speak, And shout my all-sufficient grace.
