WHERE is Hebrews'
W who kept them night and day?
Where is the heavenly fire and cloud,
Through this vast wilderness.
Christ in you, the hope of glory.
9th P. M. 87, 87, 87, 87.
God is in the midst of her.
What can shake thy sure repose
Round each habitation hov'ring, See the cloud and fire appear! For a glory and a cov'ring,
Showing that the Lord is near: He who gives us daily manna,
He who listens when we cry, Let him hear the loud Hosanna Rising to his throne on high. 234
Put on thy beautiful garments, O Jerusalem.
No longer in thy sins lie down : The garment of salvation take; Thy beauty and thy strength put on. 2 Shake off the dust that blinds thy sight, And hides the promise from thine eyes; Arise, and struggle into light;
The great Deliv'rer calls,-Arise!
3 Shake off the bands of sad despair;
Be purged from every sinful stain;
The heavenly Zion.
Thine own immortal strength put on! With terror clothed, hell's kingdom shake, And cast thy foes with fury down.
2 As in the ancient days appear!
To endless ages still the same.
3 By death and hell pursued in vain,
And pass through death triumphant home.
8th P. M. 87, 87, 47.
Her enemies confounded.
What a favour'd lot is thine!
2 Every human tie may perish;
Friend to friend unfaithful prove; Mothers cease their own to cherish; Heaven and earth at last remove; But no changes
Can attend Jehovah's love.
3 In the furnace God may prove thee,
Love for Zion.
LOVE thy kingdom, Lord,
The Church our blest Redeemer saved
2 I love thy Church, O God!
3 For her my tears shall fall;
4 Beyond my highest joy
5 Sure as thy truth shall last,
9th P. M. 87, 87, 87, 87. God her everlasting light.
HEAR what God the Lord hath spoken:
O my people, faint and few, Comfortless, afflicted, broken,
Fair abodes I build for you: Scenes of heartfelt tribulation
Shall no more perplex your ways; You shall name your walls salvation, And your gates shall all be praise.
2 Ye, no more your suns descending, Waning moons no more shall see; But, your griefs forever ending,
Find eternal noon in me:
1st P. M. 6 lines
The day consecrated.
[REAT God, this hallow'd day of thine
2 Hence, ye vain cares and trifles, fly! Where God resides appear no more! Omniscient Lord, thy piercing eye
Doth every secret thought explore: O may thy grace our thoughts refine, And fix our hearts on things divine!
The day improved.
THIS day the Lord hath call'd his own;
Let us praise declare,
Fix our desires on him 'alone,
And seek his face with prayer.
2 Lord, in thy love we would rejoice,
And, with united heart and voice,
3 Now let the world's delusive things
4 0 let these earthly Sabbaths, Lord, Be to our welfare blest;
The purest comfort here afford,
