5 Pray we for the promis'd hour,

When the family compleat,
Borne on clouds, and girt with pow'r,

In the house above shall meet. 6 Master, haften on thy day!

Glorious to thy judgment comel
Call thy trav'ling saints away;

LORD, we long to be at home.

371. AT PARTING

X Х

I

Lest be the dear uniting love,

That will not let us part;
Our bodies may far off remove,

We still are join'd in heart.
2 Join'd in one Spirit to our Head,

Where he appoints we go,
And still in Jesu's footsteps tread,

And do his work below.
3
O let us ever walk in him,

And nothing know beside
Nothing desire, nothing esteem,

But Jesus crucify'd.
4 Closer and closer let us cleave

To his belov'd embrace,
Expect his fulness to receive,

And grace to answer grace.

5 Thus let us hasten to the day

Which shall our flesh restore,
When death shall all be done away,

And bodies part no more.

372. FOR MINISTERS AT MEETING, Welcome, welcome, bleffed fervant,

Messenger of Jesu's grace!!.
O how beautiful the feet of
Him that brings good news of peace !
All hail, herald, &c.

Priest of God, thy people's joy. 2 Saviour bless his message to us,

Give us hearts to hear the found
Of redemption, dearly purchas'd

By thy death and precious wound.
O reveal it, &c.

To our poor and helpless fouls. 3 Give reward of grace and glory,

To thy faithful labourer dear,
Let the incense of our hearts be

Offer'd up in faith and prayer.
Bless, O bless him, &c.
Now, henceforth, for evermore.

WIT

'ITH all thy pow'r, O LORD, defend
Him whom we now to I hee com-

mend;
Our faithful minifter secure,

And make him to the end endure.
2 Gird him with all-fufficient grace ;

Give to his footsteps paths of peace ;
Thy truth and faithfulness fulll ;

Preserve him, LORD, from ev'ry ill.
3 Before his face protection fend;

o love him, save him to the end :
Nor let him as thy pilgrim rove,

Without the convoy of thy love,
4 Enlarge, enflame, and fill his heart

In him thy mighty power exert ;
That thousands yet unborn may praise
The wonders of redeeming grace.

O'R D, dismiss us with thy blesing;

Fill our hearts with joy and peace ;

Triumph in redeeming grace :

For thy gospel's joyful sound :

In our hearts and lives abound!

Ever faithful, &c. To the truth may we be found ! 3. So whene'er the fignals given

Us from earth to call away,
Borne on Angel's wing to heaven,
Glad the summons to obey,

May we ever, &c.
Reign with Christ in endless day!
