ty and all be peace.

3 For by his word the heaven and earth
were made,

The earth's foundation also firmly laid;
All things were done at his divine com-
mand,

And shall throughout all ages surely stand.
4 Therefore let all in heaven and earth agree
To sing his praise in perfect unity;
Yea, let his servants all, with one accord,
With joyful hallelujahs praise the Lord.

Anon. Ps. 95.

Penitent prayer.
FATHER, again in Jesus' name we meet,
And bow in penitence beneath thy feet ;
Again to thee our feeble voices raise,
To sue for mercy, and to sing thy praise.

2 Lord, we would bless thee for thy cease-
less care,

And all thy work from day to day declare:
Is not our life with early mercies crowned ?
Does not thine arm encircle us around?

Он, come, and let us all, with one accord,
Lift up our cheerful voice, and praise the
Lord!

Let us this evening bless his holy Name,
Yea, let us laud and magnify the same.
2 Let universal nature ever raise
A cheerful voice to give him thanks and
praise;

4 Oh, by that name in which all fullness dwells,
Oh, by that love which every love excels,
Oh, by that blood so freely shed for sin,

Let us and all his saints his glory sing,

Who is our blesséd Saviour, Lord, and Open blest mercy's gate and take us in!

King.

3 Alas! unworthy of thy boundless love,
Too oft with careless feet from thee we rove;
But now, encouraged by thy voice, we come,
Returning sinners to a Father's home.

My heart shall gladden through the tedious day;

To thee, my God, I'll tune the grateful lay.

"Holy rest."

HAIL, happy day! thou day of holy rest, What heavenly peace and transport fill my breast!

When Christ, the God of grace, in love descends,

4 Why faint, my soul? why doubt Jehovah's aid?

Thy God the God of mercy still shall prove;

Within his courts thy thanks shall yet be paid

Unquestioned be his faithfulness and love!

Robert Lowth.

Its flattering, fading glories I despise,
And to immortal beauties turn my eyes.

3 Fain would I mount and penetrate the skies,

And on my Saviour's glories fix my eyes; Oh! meet my rising soul, thou God of love,

And waft it to the blissful realms above!

4 Until in joy and gladness
We reach that home at last,
When life's short week of sorrow
And sin and strife is past;
When angel-hands have gathered
The first ripe fruit for thee,
O Father, Son, and Spirit,
Most Holy Trinity!

Cheerful Devotion.

THINE holy day's returning,
Our hearts exult to see;
And with devotion burning,
Ascend, O God, to thee!
To-day with purest pleasure,

Our thoughts from earth withdraw;
We search for heavenly treasure,
We learn thy holy law.

2 We join to sing thy praises,
Lord of the Sabbath day;
Each voice in gladness raises

Its loudest, sweetest lay!
Thy richest mercies sharing,

Inspire us with thy love,
By grace our souls preparing
For nobler praise above.

Ray Palmer.
