And follow thee to heaven, our home,
Bid us all depart in peace, ,
Pure seraphic joys increase,
Up to heaven our voices raise ;
Then we'll give thee nobler praise ; And sing, Hallelujah, to God and the Lamb,
For ever and ever, Hallelujah, Amen. 276
Job. DISMISS us with thy blessing, Lord, Help us to feed upon thy word; All that has been amiss, forgive, And let thy truth within us live. Though we are guilty, thou art good; Wash all our works in Jesus' blood ; . Give every fettered soul release,

Gabriel. NOW we'd all, with grateful spirits,
Join to bless the Prince of peace ; Praise him for imparted favours, Praise him for displays of grace:
Wait to rise at thy command,
We, thy people, shall abide,
Then how glorious
Striving each to praise thee most ;
We'll bless the Saviour's name;
Sing, every tongue the same.
And feed thereon and grow;
Go on to seek and know the Lord,
And jractice what you know.
Cemented, mix in one;
'Tis heaven on earth begun.
And glow'd with sacred fire;
A Saviour, 'let creation sing!
A Saviour, let all heaven ring!
e soon shall reach the heavenly shore, We then sball meet to part no more. ! 280

Wells. PRAYER was appointed to convey
The blessings God designs to give; Long as they live should Christians pray,
For only while they pray they live. The Christian's heart his prayer indites,
He speaks as prompted from within; The Spirit his petition writes,
And Christ receives and gives it in. And shall we in dead silence lie,
When Christ stands waiting for our pray'r? My soul, thou hast a friend on high,
Arise, and try thy interest there. If pain afflict, or wrongs oppress,
If cares distract, or fears dismay, If guilt deject, if sin distress,
The remedy's before thee-pray. Depend on Christ, thou canst not fail,
Make all thy wants and wishes known; Fear not, his merits must prevail,
Ask what thou wilt, it shall be done. 282 wwwroomara
Martin's Lane. MAY he, by whose kind care we meet,
Send bis good Spirit from above;
Make our communication sweet,
And cause 'our hearts to burn with love. Forgotten be each worldly theme,
When Christians meet together thus; We only wish to speak of him,
Who liv'd and died and reigns for us. We'll talk of all he did and said,
And suffer'd for us bere below; The path he mark'd for us to tread,
And what be's doing for us now. Thus, as the moments pass away,
We'll love, and wonder, and adore ; And basten on the glorious day,
When we shall meet to part no more. 283
To appear before thy throne;
All we ask for
For thy people's need is found ;
