Walk in the light. 1
WALK in the light! so shalt thou know
His Spirit only can bestow
2 Walk in the light! and thou shalt find
3 Walk in the light! and thou shalt own Thy darkness pass'd away,
Because that Light hath on thee shone
4 Walk in the light! and e'en the tomb
5 Walk in the light! thy path shall be
APPY the meek, whose gentle breast,
Calm as the regions of the blest,
2 His heart no broken friendships sting;
3 Spirit of grace! all meek and mild, Inspire our hearts, our souls possess ; Repel each passion rude and wild,
And bless us, as we aim to bless.
Charity, or Love.
H Great God, without thy grace,
AD I gift of tongues,
My loudest words, my loftiest songs,
4 Grant, then, this one request,—
That love divine may rule my breast,
Transported with the view, I'm lost
WHEN all thy mercies, O my God,
2 O how can words with equal warmth The gratitude declare,
That glows within my ravish'd heart?— But thou canst read it there.
3 To all my weak complaints and cries, Thy mercy lent an ear,
Ere yet my feeble thoughts had learn'd To form themselves in prayer.
4 When in the slipp'ry paths of youth,
5 Through hidden dangers, toils, and deaths,
6 Through every period of my life
4th P. M. 886, 886. Gratitude evinced by living to God's glory.
BE it my only wisdom here,
To serve the Lord with filial fear,
2 O may I still from sin depart ;.
And let me through thy Spirit know
Security and safety.
Secure in his omnipotence,
What foe can make our souls afraid?
2 Yea, though the earth's foundations rock, And mountains down the gulf be hurl'd, His people smile amid the shock:
They look beyond this transient world.
3 There is a river pure and bright, Whose streams make glad the heavenly plains; Where in eternity of light
The city of our God remains.
4 Built by the word of his command,
The good Shepherd.
1st P. M. 6 lines 8s.
His presence shall my wants supply,
2 When in the sultry glebe I faint,
3 Though in a bare and rugged way,
4 Though in the paths of death I tread,
27th P. M. 4 lines 11s. Rejoicing in the care of the good Shepherd.
is Shepherd, no want shall I know;
I feed in green pastures, safe-folded I rest; He leadeth my soul where the still waters flow, Restores me when wand'ring, redeems when oppress'd.
2 Through the valley and shadow of death though I stray,
Since thou art my guardian, no evil I fear; Thy rod shall defend me, thy staff be my stay; No harm can befall, with my Comforter near. 3 In the midst of affliction my table is spread;
With blessings unmeasured my cup runneth o'er; With oil and perfume thou anointest my head; O what shall I ask of thy providence more? 4 Let goodness and mercy, my bountiful God,
Still follow my steps till I meet thee above; I seek-by the path which my forefathers trod, Through the land of their sojourn―thy kingdom
Are they not all ministering spirits?
W a ours,
Encircled from our second birth
And evil turn aside.
