Now I behold my Priest and King,

Thro' boundless fields of endless light,
With grateful admiration,

My mind is left to ponder,
His ways, his works, his name I'll sing I sail through seas of glory bright,
In flaming adoration-

O glorious seas of wonder !
His everlasting glories shine,

The holy saints his love proclaim,
Diffusing light and joy divine,

Angelic notes in highest strains,
While all upon that happy shore, And loud hosannas to his name,
Shall reign with him forevermore. Are ringing o'er the blissful plains.
O sound his prajse, ye heavenly choir, O sound his praise, ye heavenly choir,
His glories set the soul on fire!

His glories set the soul on fire.

HYMN 526.
This world and its glory, and all we hold dear,
Though shining in beauty, must soon disappear;
A moment they glitter, then fade to the eye,
Like meteors of night that dash over the sky.

Home, home, sweet, sweet home!
There's nothing that fades in the home of the soul !
Though pleasure's rich cluster may temptingly glow,
In the frost of the grave no flowers shall grow;
And homes that we loved, deserted become,
And fond ones we cherish, shall sleep in the tomb.

Home, home, sweet, sweet home!
No parting is known in the home of the soul!
Then give me a home far away in the skies,
Where hope never withers, where love never dies!
The home of the Christian, where pilgrims are blest,
And th’ exiles of earth shall be ever at rest.

Home ! home ! sweet, sweet home!
The bosom of God is THE HOME OF THE SOUL !

Exult, for the day-star from heaven is shining;

The reign of delusion is over and gone;
Love, peace, joy and hope are their tendrils entwining.

And justice and mercy combining in one.
Awake, then, from sorrow-arise from despair,-
The night has been long-but the morning is fair.
No more shall the wanderer, groping in error,

His vision beclouded in darkness and night,
View life in despair, and the future with terror,

The beams of salvation have burst on the sight!
Awake, then, from sorrow-arise from despair-
The night has been long-but the morning is fair.
Rejoice! for the earth is resuming her splendor,

The flowers of Eden are blooming anew;
The tyrant of darkness his throne shall surrender,

And freedom revisit the Gentile and Jew.
Awake, then, from sorrow-arise from despair-

The night has been long-but the morning is fair. L. C.

No

hallowing spot where con . tent has birth, And where I may find a

rest?

VERSES 2, 3.
O is it not written, Believe and live !-

The heart, by bright hopes allured,
Shall find the comfort these words can give,

And be by its faith assured.
Then why should we fear the cold world's frown,

When truth to the heart has given, The light of religion to guide us on,,

In joy to the paths of heaven!

HYMN 529. How sweet to the soul is the still small voice

We hear from the throne above ! It bids us in faith and hope rejoice

In God and his boundless love!
Though bowed by the weight of earthly woe,

It bids us be strong in him ;
And upward we look, and behold the bow

of promise, which ne'er is dim.

There is, there is, in thy holy word,

Thy word which can ne'er depart, There is a promise of mercy stored

For them who are lowly of heart. “My yoke is easy, my burden light• O come unto me for rest!" This, this is the promise of mercy stored,

For the wounded and weary breast.

Though darkness may brood around awhile,

And shadow our way in gloom, The light of his truth ere long will smile,

And joy in our pathway bloom. Then let us attend the still small voice

Which speaks from the throne above! And ever confiding in God, rejoice

In him and his boundless love!

HYMN 530.

HYMN 531. We come-and here, as one in heart, Eternal God of truth above! O Lord! we bow before thee!

Bless thou the promise spoken; Thy holy grace and truth impart, And never may these bonds of love And here unveil thy glory.

By aught of ill be broken. Thy constant care, in ceaseless love, O ever may these plighted hearts,

Our faithful Friend displays thee; Thy holy grace possessing, And we will join with hosts above, Enjoy the bliss thy peace imparts, In songs of joy to praise thee.

In everlasting blessing. With tokens of thy might and skill, In light and shadow, weal and woe, Creation round is glowing;

In action and emotion, And streams of blessing and good-will Be ever theirs the joy to know

Through nature wide are flowing Of never-changed devotion. But in thy word our faith beholds, O may remembrance of this hour,

Thy most endearing favor;
For there the light of truth unfolds Whose kindling glow and holy power
The blessing of a Saviour.

Shall be forgotten never.
O may thy loving-kindness draw In thee, O Lord, be theirs to find
All people to adore thee;

Their light, and joy, and glory; And may we ever love thy law,

And loving thee with heart and mind, And walk redeemed before thee. In wisdom walk before thee. And when the hand of death shall come, So may they feel a heaven below, The ties of earth to sever,

With thee in pure communion, May we, in our celestial home,

And be at last received to know Enjoy thy love forever.

The joys of endless union.

Andhrough nature wide in theholds,

may rera charm for ever holy power
