I know whom I have believed. 2 Tim. i. 12. WHEN I can read my title clear

To mansions in the skies, I bid farewell to ev'ry fear,

And wipe my weeping eyes.

Should foes against my soul engage,

And fiery darts be hurl’d; Then I can smile at Satan's rage

And face a frowning world.

Let cares like a wild deluge come,

And storms of sorrow fall; May I but safely reach my home,

My God! my heav'n! my all !

There, anchor'd safe, my weary soul

Shall find eternal rest; Nor storms shall beat, nor billows roll, Across my peaceful breast.

Let us therefore fear. Heb. iv. 1. When Israel, by divine command,

The pathless desert trod; They found, through all that dreary land,

A sure resource in God

A cloudy pillar mark'd their road,

And screen’d them from the heat ; From rocks of stone the water flow'd,

And manna was their meat.

Like them, we have a rest in view,

Secure from adverse pow'rs; Like them, we pass a desert too,

But Israel's God is ours.

0! may we not, like them, abuse

The riches of his grace; Nor such amazing love refuse,

But humbly seek his face.

Lift up your heads 0 ye gates. Ps. xxiv. 7. Old Version.
Ye gates and everlasting doors,

Lift up your heads on high; ·
Then shall the King of glorious state,

Come in triumphantly.

Who is the King of glorious state ?

The great and mighty Lord ;
The mighty Lord in battle strong,

And trial of the sword.

Ye gates and everlasting doors,

Lift up your heads on high;
Then shall the King of glorious state,

Come in triumphantly.

Who is the King of glorious state ?

The Lord of Hosts it is;
The kingdom and the royalty

For evermore are his.

He hath comforted his people. Is. xlix. 13.

Your harps, ye trembling saints,

Down from the willows take; Loud to the praise of love divine,

Bid ev'ry string awake.

Though in a foreign land,

We are not far from home; And nearer to our house above,

We ev'ry moment come.

Tarry his leisure then,

Wait his appointed hour; Wait till the Saviour of your souls,

Reveal his love with pow'r.

Blest is the man, O God !

That stays himself on thee: Who waits for thy salvation, Lord !

Shall thy salvation see.

Abba, Father, while we sing ........
According to thy gracious word........
A house we have not made with hands ..........
Amicted soul, to Christ draw near .......
Alas! and did my Saviour bleed ? .
All hail the Great Immanuel's name! ....
And now my soul, another year ...
Angels roll the rock away ..........
Another fleeting day is gone ..
Approach my soul the mercy seat ...
As when the weary trav'ller gains
Awake, and sing the song .........
Before Jehovah's awful throne ....
Beset with snares on ev'ry hand
Brightest and best of the sons of the morning....
Come, Holy Ghost! our souls inspire .
Creator Spirit, by whose aid ...
Come, let us join our cheerful songs ....
Come thou long expected Jesus .
Crowns of glory ever bright
Day of judgment, day of wonders ..
Eternity is just at hand
Ere another sabbath's close .....
Father of heav'n! whose love profound ......
From all that dwell below the skies .....
