All that Spring, with bounteous hand,
Scatters o'er the smiling land;
All that lib'ral Autumn pours
From her overflowing stores;
These, great God! to thee we owe;
Source, whence all our blessings flow;
And for these our souls shall raise
Grateful vows and solemn praise.
Holy, holy, holy Lord !
Be thou by heav'n and earth ador'd.

(8–8–6.) 36–MAY we thy precepts, Lord, fulfil,

To do on earth our Father's will,

As angels do above;
To walk in Christ, the living way,
With all thy children, and obey

The law of christian love.
So may we join thy name to bless,
Thy grace adore, thy pow'r confess,

From sin and strife to free:
One is our calling, one our name,
The end of all our hope the same

A crown of life with thee.
Spirit of life, of love, of peace,
Unite our hearts, our joy increase,

Thy gracious help supply:
To ev'ry soul the blessing give,
In christian fellowship to live;

In joyful hope to die.

(D. L. m.)
37-O GOD, thou art my God alone,

Early to thee my soul shall cry,
A pilgrim in a land unknown,
A thirsty land whose springs are dry.
Yet through this rough and thorny maze
I follow hard on thee, my God;
Thine hand unseen upholds my ways,
I safely tread where thou hast trod. '

Thee, in the watches of the night,
When I remember on my bed,
Thy presence makes the darkness light,
Thy guardian wings are round my head,
Better than life itself thy love,
Dearer than all beside to me;
For whom have I in heav'n above,
Or what on earth compar'd with Thee?
