Hymn 217. C. M. Nevertheless I am not ashamed. 2 Tim. i. 12 1 ''M not asham'd to own idy Lord, Maintain the honour of his word,

The glory of his cross.
2 Jesus, my God! I know his name;

His name is all my trust;
Nor will he put my soul to shame,

Nor let iny hope be lost.
3 Firm as his thronc bis promise stands,

And he can well secure
What I've committed to his hands,

Till the decisive hour.
4 Then will he own my humble name:

Before bis Father's face;
And in the new Jerusalem
Appoint my soul a place.

Hymn 218. P. M. 1 HEPHERD of souls, the great, the good,

Who on thy servant's side hast stood,
And blest my ministry;
Ready my prosper'd course to end,
I to thy guardian love commend

The flock receiv'd from thee.
2 Beneath thy wings, their sure defence,
Protected by Omnipotence,

Thy most distinguish'd care;
The lambs and sheep of thy own fold,
Now in thy book of life enroll'd,

Preserve for ever there.

Of every soul that cleaves to thee,
The troubles for thy sake they seel,

Their eager hopes thy house to see.
2 Their vows to cry and never rest,

Till thou art in thy church ador'd,
And dweil'st in every faithsul breast,

And count them worthy of their Lord, 3 We too the joyful sound have heard,

That God is coming to bis place;
Ilere in this wilderness prepar'd,

Our Lord his ruin'd church shall raise. 4 For this our willing soul shall go,

Ånd lowly at bis footstool lie,
Where'er his tent is pitch'd below,

There for a glorious temple cry.
5 Thy priests be cloth'd with righteousness,

l'by praise their happy lives employ; The saints in thee their all possess,

And shout the sons of God for joy.

So mightily grew the word of God. Acts xix. 20.
EE how great a flame aspires,

dhe of ?

Sets the kingdoms in a blaze :
To bring fire on earth he came:

Kindled in some bearts it is:
O that all migbt catch the flame,

All partake the glorious bliss !"
2 When he first the work begun,

Small and feeble was his day :
Now tbe word doth swiftly run,

Now it winds its wid'ning way:
More and more it spreads aud grows,

Ever mighty to prevail;
Sin's strong-bold it now o'ertbrows,

Shakes the trembling gates of hell.
3 Sons of God, your Saviour praise :

He the door hath open'd wide :
He hath given the word of grace,

Jesu's word is glorified !
Jesus, mighty to redcem,

He alone the work bath wrought;
Worthy is the work of him,
Flim who spake a world from nöụght:

4 Saw ye not the cloud arise,

Little as a humav hand ?
Now it spreads along the skies,

Hangs o'er all the thirsty land.
Lo! the promise for a show'r

Drops already from above;
But the Lord will shortly pour

All the Spirit of his love!
