SHIRLAND. ST. THOMAS. WATCHMAN. 97
HYMN 281.

HYMN 284.
While God my Father's near,

Blest be the tie that binds My Shepherd, and my Guide,

Our hearts in Christian love! I bid farewell to every fear;

The fellowship of kindred minds, My wants are all supplied.

Is like to that above. To ever-fragrant meads,

Before our Father's throne Where rich abundance grows,

We pour our ardent prayers; His gracious hand indulgent leads, Our faith and hope, and love are one, And guards my sweet repose.

And one our joys and cares. Along the lovely scene,

We share our griefs and woes,
Cool waters gently roll,

And every rising fear,
And kind refreshment smiles serene, And often for a brother flows
To cheer my fainting soul.

Affection's purest tear.
Here let my spirit rest;

When we are call'd to part, How sweet a lot is mine!

We share alike the pain, With pleasure, food, and safety blest; Though, ever joined in mind and heart, Beneficence divine !

We hope to meet again. Great Shepherd, if I stray,

Blest be the tie that binds My wandering feet restore;

Our hearts in Christian loye; To thy fair pastures guide my way, The fellowship of kindred minds And let me rove no more.

Is like to that above.

HYMN 282. Shine, gracious Lord ! O shine

In all thy saving light, . And prosper every pure design,

By thy triumphant might. O bring thy ransomed near,

That they may learn thy ways; Thy word may all thy people hear,

And sing thy worthy praise.
O may thy glorious power

Revealed in mercy be;
And all mankind thy name adore,

And serve and honor thee.

HYMN 285.
Dear Lord! we now must part !

A parting blessing give;
With thy pure love fill every heart,

That we in love may live.
And though we're far away,

May we united be,
And for each other daily pray,

That we may live in thee.
All glory to the Lamb,

May we forever sing,
And bid farewell, while we proclaim

Hosannas to our King.

HYMN 283. The Lord my Shepherd is,

I shall be well supplied ; Since he is mine, and I am his,

What can I want beside ? He leads me to the place

Where heavenly pasture grows, Where living waters gently pass,

And full salvation flows.
Whene'er from him I stray,

To error's thorny track,
He breathes to me of wisdom's way,

And gently leads me back.
Great Shepherd ! may thy love

Inspire my heart to praise ; And may my heart forever prove

The joy of wisdom's ways.

HYMN 286.
Let party names no more

The Christian world o'erspread;
Gentile and Jew, and bond and free,

Are one in Christ, their Head.
Among the saints on earth,

Let mutual love be found,
Heirs of the same celestial birth,

With mutual blessings crowned.
May every evil cease,

And only love be known,
Since all a Father's love possess,

In one Redeemer shown.
So may the church below

Resemble that above,
Where streams of pleasure ever flow,

And every heart is love.

LONSDALE. PECKHAM.
HYMN 288.

HYMN 291. -
Come, Holy Spirit, come!

Behold, the lofty sky Let thy bright beams appear;

Declares its maker, God, Dispel the shades of fearful gloom, And all his starry works on high And shine in glory here.

Proclaim his power abroad. O cleanse us from all sin,

The darkness and the light By mercy from above;

Still keep their course the same, And every waiting spirit win

While night to day, and day to night, To faith and hope and love.

Divinely teach his name. 'Tis thine to cleanse the heart,

In every different land And sanctify the soul;

Their general voice is known; Do thou thy holy grace impart,

They show the wonders of his hand, And all our powers control.

And orders of his throne. Then shall we hear thy voice,

Ye Christian lands, rejoice! O thou celestial Dove !

Here he reveals his word: And every longing soul rejoice

We are not left to Nature's voice
In faith and hope and love.

To bid us know the Lord.
HYMN 289.

His statutes and commands

Are set before our eyes;
Not with the outward eye
Have we beheld our Lord,

He puts his gospel in our hands,

Where our salvation lies.
Yet we perceive his blessing nigh,
Recorded in his word.

His laws are just and pure;
On earth we want the sight

His truth without deceit; Of our Redeemer's face;

His promises forever sure, Yet, Lord, our inmost thoughts delight

And his rewards are great.
To dwell upon thy grace.

HYMN 292.
And when we taste thy love,
Our joys divinely flow;

Come, ye who love the Lord.
Our hearts rejoice with those above,

And let your joys be known; And heaven begins below.

Join in a song, with sweet accord,

While ye surround the throne.
HYMN 290.

The sorrows of the mind
Rejoice! the Lord is King!

• Be banished from this place; Your Lord and King adore ;

Religion never was designed Ye sons of men, give thanks and sing, To make our pleasures less. And triumph evermore.

Believers here have found, The mighty Saviour reigns,

A heaven begun below; In glorious worlds above;

Celestial fruits, on earthly ground, Hig justice and his truth maintains

From faith and hope will grow, The glory of his love.

They hear their Saviour's voice. His kingdom cannot fail,

And enter into rest; Nor his dominion cease;

In him they evermore rejoice,
Nor sin nor woe can e'er prevail,

By him forever blest.
Against the Prince of Peace.
In conflicts with his foes.

The hill of Zion yields
He conquered in the strife;

A thousand sacred sweets, Nor death itself could long oppose

Before we reach the heavenly fields, The mighty Lord of Life.

Or walk the golden streets. Lift up the grateful voice,

Then let our songs abound, To sing his might and love!

And every tear be dry; Rejoice! again I say, rejoice,

We're marching thro' Emanuel's ground With angel-hosts above.

To fairer worlds on high.

HYMN 294.
Let every creature join

To praise th' eternal God;
Ye heavenly hosts, the song begin,

And sound his name abroad.
Thou sun, with golden beams,

Thou moon, with paler rays; Ye starry lights, ye twinkling flames,

Shine to your Maker's praise. He built those worlds above,

And fixed their wondrous frame: By his command they stand or move,

And ever speak his name. By all his works above,

His honors be expressed; Bit saints, who taste his saving love,

Should sing his praises best.

HYMN 295. Behold the morning sun

Begins his glorious way; His beams through all the nations run,

And life and light convey.
But where the gospel comes,

It spreads diviner light;
The pilgrim's pathway it illumes,

And cheers his longing sight.
How perfect is thy word!

And all thy judgments just! Forever sure thy promise, Lord,

And we securely trust.
My gracious God, how plain

Are thy directions given !
Oh! may we never read in vain,

But find the path to heaven,
