2 Rebel, ye waves, and o’er the land
With threat'ning aspect roar;
And chains you to the shore. 3 Howl, winds of night, your force combine,
Without his high behest,
Disturb the sparrow's nest.
Ye monarchs wait his nod,
To celebrate your God.
His station who can find ?
I hear him in the wind !
His face I cannot fly;
And in the morning sky.
Then, when his thunders cease, Sits as the ruler of the storm,
And smiles the winds to peace!
Psalm xxxiv, 1-4. (P. m.) 1 FAITHLESS to my Saviour? never,
Never more I'll be;
He has died for me!
Griev'd his holy will;
But he lov'd me still!
When his Spirit strove!
Still I had his love!
Never more I'll roam;
Till thou bring'st me home.
Colossians iïi, 16. (c. M.)
With my Redeemer's praise ;
My cheerful voice I'll raise.
My tongue thy grace declare ; And psalms and hymns, and sacred songs, My day and night should share.
3 Accept then, Lord, my weak desires
To bless and praise thy name; And may my life, in stronger words,
Set forth my ardent aim.
Oh hear my suppliant voice!
And humbly I'll rejoice.
Revelation xv, 3. (s. M.)
1 AWAKE, and sing the song
Of Moses and the Lamb:
To praise the Saviour's name. 2 Sing of his dying love,
Sing of his rising pow'r,
For those whose sins he bore! 3 Sing on your heav'nly way,
Ye ransom'd sinners, sing :
In Christ th' eternal King ! 4 Soon shall we hear him say,
“Ye blessed children, come ;" Soon will he call us hence away,
And take his wand'rers home.
116. Psalm li, 12. (7’s.)
Let thy light within me shine :
Fill me full of heav'n and love.
Set the burden'd sinner free:
Seal salvation on my heart,
Earnest of eternal rest.
Keep me in the narrow way;
Hosea iii, 5. (L. m.). 1 GREAT God of Abra'am, hear our pray’r,
Let Abra'am's seed thy mercy share :
And look on him they pierc'd, and mourn. 2 Remember Jacob's flock of old,
Bring home the wand'rers to thy fold ;
3 Lord, put thy law within their hearts,
And write it in their inward parts;
Which hides Messiah from their view. 4 Oh! haste the day, foretold so long,
When Jew and Greek, (a glorious throng,) One house shall seek, one pray'r shall pour, And one Redeemer shall adore.
118 1 Corinthians vii, 35. (L. M. G's.)
Prepare us to receive thy word :
And crown thy gospel with success.
And fix our hearts and hopes above;
And crown thy gospel with success. 3 To us thy sacred word apply,
With sov’reign pow'r and energy ;
