HYMN 301:


HOME, O my soul, and sing

How Jesus hath thee fed ;
How Jesus gave himself for thee,

The true and living bread. 2 I love my Saviour Christ;

His grace did freely move,
And justly my affections claim;

I cannot help but love.
I love thee, O my LORD;!;

I gladly thee adore :
O may I never turn again!

But love thee more and more.
O raise my feeble fame;

My little stock improve :
Increase my ardour day by day,

And change me all to love.


HYMN 302

O ur lives, our blood, we here present,

If for thy fake they may be spent; Fulfil thy sov'reign counsel, LORD,

Thy will be done, thy name ador'd.. 2 Give us thy strength, thou God of pow'r;

Then let men scorn, and Satan roar;
Thy faithful witnesses we'll be:
'Tis fix'd we can do all thro’ thee.


ELP us to help each other, LORD,

Each other's cross to bear;
Let each his friendly aid afford,

And feel another's care.
2 Help us to build each other up,

Our little stock improve ;
Increase our faith, confirm our hope,

And perfect us in love. 3 Then, when the mighty work is wrought,

Receive thy ready bride
Give us in heav'n a happy. lot,

With all the sanctify'd.

READ Sovereign let my evening song

Like holy incense rise ;
Alift the offerings of my tongue

To reach the lofty skies.
2 Thro' all the dangers of the day

Thy Hand was still my guard,
And still to drive my wants away,

Thy mercy stood prepar'd.
3 Perpetual blessings from above,

Incompass me around;
But O how few returns of love

Hath my Creator found?
4 What have I done for him that dy'd

To save my wretched soul?
How are my follies multiply'd,

Fast as my minutes roll ! 5 LORD, with this guilty heart of mine

To thy dear crofs I fee,
And to thy grace my soul resign,

To be renew'd by thee.

6 Sprinkled afresh with pard’ning blood,

I lay me down to rest,
As in th' embraces of my GOD,

Or on my Saviour's breast.

HY M N. 307

NO farther go to:night, but stay,

, ,
Dear Saviour, till the break of day ;
Turn in, dear LORD, with me :
And in the morning when I wake,
Me in thine arms, my Jesus, take,

And I'll go on with thee.

HYMN 308.





WAKE, my soul, and with the sun
Thy daily stage of duty run;

Shake off dull noth, and early rise

To pay thy morning sacrifice. 2 Redeem thy mis-spent time that's past,

Live this day as if 'twere thy last ;
T'improve thy talents take due care,

'Gainst the great day thyself preparé. 3 Let all thy converse be sincere,

Thy conscience as the noon-day clear ; Think how th' all-feeing God thy ways, And all thy fecret thoughts surveys.
