4 There I shall bathe my weary soul
In seas of heavenly rest,
And not a wave of trouble roll
Across my peaceful breast.


26th P. M. 76, 76, 76, 76. No cause for fear. OD is my strong salvation; What foe have I to fear? In darkness and temptation,

My light, my help, is near: Though hosts encamp around me,

Firm in the fight I stand; What terror can confound me,

With God at my right hand? 2 Place on the Lord reliance;

My soul, with courage wait;
His truth be thine affiance,

When faint and desolate;
His might thy heart shall strengthen,
His love thy joy increase;
Mercy thy days shall lengthen;
The Lord will give thee peace.


S. M.


THE good fight have fought,


The vict'ry by my Saviour got, I long with Paul to share. 20 may I triumph so,

When all my warfare's past; And, dying, find my latest foe

Under my feet at last!

3 This blessed word be mine,
Just as the port is gain'd,-
Kept by the power of grace divine,
I have the faith maintain'd.

4 The' apostles of my Lord,
To whom it first was given,
They could not speak a greater word,
Nor all the saints in heaven.


The universal victory of the cross.
ESUS, the Conqu'ror, reigns,

In glorious strength array'd;
His kingdom over all maintains,
And bids the earth be glad :
Ye sons of men, rejoice
In Jesus' mighty love;
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice,
To Him who rules above.

2 Extol his kingly power; Kiss the exalted Son,

Who died, and lives to die no more,
High on his Father's throne:

Our Advocate with God,

He undertakes our cause, And spreads through all the earth abroad The vict'ry of his cross.


Victory is on the Lord's side.

S. M.

3 We soon shall see the day

When all our toils shall cease; When we shall cast our arms away, And dwell in endless peace.

ARISE, ye saints, arise!

The our is;

The foe before his banner flies,
And victory is His.

2 We follow thee, our Guide,
Our Saviour, and our King;
We follow thee, through grace supplied
From heaven's eternal spring.

S. M.

4 This hope supports us here;
It makes our burdens light:
"Twill serve our drooping hearts to cheer,
Till faith shall end in sight:-

5 Till, of the prize possess'd,

We hear of war no more; And ever with our Leader rest, On yonder peaceful shore.


22d P. M. 88, 88, 84.

Crowns cast at the feet of Jesus.
ARK! how the gospel trumpet sounds,

Proclaiming to a ruin'd race,
That through the riches of His grace,
Sinners may see the Saviour's face,
In endless day.

2 Hail, Jesus! all-victorious Lord!
Be thou by all mankind adored!
For us didst thou the fight maintain,
And o'er our foes the vict'ry gain,
That we, with thee, might ever reign,
In endless day.

3 And when, through grace, our course is run,
The battle fought, the vict'ry won,
Then crowns unfading we shall wear,
The glory of thy kingdom share,
With thee, our glorious leader, there,
In endless day.

4 Then, in thy presence, heavenly King,
In loftier strains thy praise we'll sing,
When with the blood-bought hosts we meet,
Triumphant there, in bliss complete,
And cast our crowns before thy feet,
In endless day.



AS strangers here below,

With various woes oppress'd, We must through tribulation go To our eternal rest.

Tribulation to be expected.

S. M.

2 Thus Christ, our glorious Head,
Ascended to his throne:-
Why should his servants fear to tread
The way their Lord has gone?
3 The path to glory lies

Through conflict and distress :-
But joyful we at length shall rise,
The kingdom to possess.


1st P. M. 6 lines 8s.

Christ our pattern and example. AVIOUR of all, what hast thou done? on the tree? Why didst thou groan thy mortal groan, Obedient unto death for me?

The myst'ry of thy passion show,—
The end of all thy griefs below.

2 Pardon, and grace, and heaven to buy,
My bleeding sacrifice expired;
But didst thou not my pattern die,

That, by thy glorious Spirit fired,
Faithful to death I might endure,
And make the crown by suff'ring sure?
3 Thou didst the meek example leave,

That I might in thy footsteps tread;
Might like the Man of Sorrows grieve,
And groan, and bow with thee my Head:
Thy dying in my body bear,
And all thy state of suff'ring share.

Yet one thing secures us, whatever betide, The promise assures us,-The Lord will provide. 2 The birds, without barn or storehouse, are fed From them let us learn to trust for our bread: His saints what is fitting shall ne'er be denied, So long as 'tis written, The Lord will provide. 3 When Satan appears to stop up our path, And fills us with fears, we triumph by faith; He cannot take from us (though oft he has tried) The heart-cheering promise, The Lord will provide.

4 He tells us we're weak,- -our hope is in vain; The good that we seek we ne'er shall obtain: But when such suggestions our graces have tried, This answers all questions,-The Lord will pro


5 No strength of our own, nor goodness we claim:
Our trust is all thrown on Jesus's Name;
In this our strong tower for safety we hide;
The Lord is our power,-The Lord will provide.
6 When life sinks apace, and death is in view,
The word of his grace shall comfort us through:
Not fearing or doubting, with Christ on our side,
We hope to die shouting,-The Lord will provide.


C. M.

Light shining out of darkness.

GOD moves in a mysterious way,

wonders perform;

He plants his footsteps in the sea,
And rides upon the storm.
