mp 1 Lord, we come before Thee now, mf 1 To Thy temple I repair ; At Thy feet we humbly bow ;

Lord, I love to worship there, or Oh, do not our suit disdain ;

When within the veil I meet Shall we seek Thee, Lord, in vain ? Christ before the mercy-seat. mf 2 Lord, on Thee our souls depend ; 2 While Thy glorious praise is sung, In compassion now descend ;

Touch my lips ; unloose my tongue,
Fill our hearts with Thy rich grace,

That my joyful soul may bless
Tune our lips to sing Thy praise.

Thee, the Lord my Righteousness. 3 In Thine own appointed way

3 While the prayers of saints ascend, Now we seek Thee, here we stay ;

God of love, to mine attend ;
Lord, we know not how to go

Hear me, for Thy Spirit pleads ;
Till a blessing Thou bestow.

Hear, for Jesus intercedes. 4 Grant that all may seek and find 4 From Thy house when I return, Thee a God supremely kind ;

May my heart within me burn;
Heal the sick, the captive free,

And at evening let me say, Let ne all rejoice ir Thee. AMEN. I have walked with God to-day.AMEN W am Hammond, 1745.

Grace in Service. mf 1Great God! this sacred day of Thine

Demands the soul's collected powers;
With joy we now to thee resign

These solemn, consecrated hours;
Oh, may our souls, adoring, own
The grace that calls us to Thy throne.

Constant Devotion. p 2 When to heaven's great and glorious

King My morning sacrifice I bring, dim And, mourning o'er my guilt and shame,

Ask mercy in my Saviour's name, cr Then, Jesus, sprinkle with Thy blood,

And be my advocate with God. p 3 When each day's scenes and labours

close, dim And wearied nature seeks repose,

With pardoning mercy richly blest,

Guard me, Saviour, while I rest; cr And as each morning sun shall rise, f ( lead me onward to the skies. p 4 And at my life's last setting sun, dim My conflicts o'er, my labours done, cr. Jesus, Thine heavenly radiance shed,

To cheer and bless my dying bed; of And from death's gloom my spirit

raise, off To see Thy face and sing Thy praise.

AMEN. W. Shrubsole.

2 Hence, ye vain cares and trifles, fly!

Where God resides appear no more; Omniscient God, Thy piercing eye

Can every secret thought explore; Oh, may Thy grace our hearts refine, And fix our thoughts on things divine.

3 Thy Spirit's powerful aid impart;

Oh, may Thy word, with life divine, Engage the ear and warm the heart;

Then shall the day indeed be Thine; Then shall our souls, adoring, own The grace which calls us to Thy throne.

Amen. A. Steele.

Sabbath Evening.

2 Every mournful sinner cheer; p 1 Softly fades the twilight ray

Scatter all our guilty gloom;
Of the holy Sabbath day;

Father! in Thy grace appear,
Gently as life's setting sun,

To Thy human temples come.
When the Christian's course is run. I 3 Come, in this accepted hour,
2 Night her solemn mantle spreads

Bring Thy heavenly kingdom in,
O’er the earth, as daylight fades;

Fill us with Thy glorious power,
All things tell of calm repose

Set us free from all our sin.
At the holy Sabbath's close.

4 Nothing more can we require,
3 Peace is on the world abroad;

We will covet nothing less;
'T is the holy peace of God -

Be Thou all our heart's desire,
Symbol of the peace within

All our joy, and all our peace.
When the spirit rests from sin.

AMEN. 4 Still the Spirit lingers near,

Hymn at Parting. Where the evening worshipper cr Seeks communion with the skies,

mf i Thou, from whom we never part, Pressing onward to the prize.

Thou, whose love is everywhere,

Thou, who seest every heart, 5 Saviour, may our Sabbaths be

| dim Listen to our evening prayer. Days of peace and joy in thee, cp Till in heaven our souls repose,

2 Father, fill our hearts with love, Where the Sabbath ne'er shall close.

Love unfailing, full and free; . Amen.

Love that no alarm can move,

Love that ever rests on Thee.
The Holy Spirit.

3 Heavenly Father! through the night mfi Light of life, seraphic Fire,

Keep us safe from every ill;
Love divine, Thyself impart; cr Cheerful as the morning light,
Every fainting soul inspire;

May we wake to do Thy will.
Enter every drooping heart; —

AMEN.
