Christian Experience, Religious Decline and Revival, and Missions. - It may be added that this collection, though small, (it being only a part of one much larger, formed on the same principles,) has been drawn from the lyric wealth of the Church in all lands and ages. Wherever the fine gold and precious gems could be found, they have been taken and used in this service of the Lord. The strains of David and Isaiah mingle here with those of Bernard, Ambrose, and Luther; and these again with those of Watts, Cowper, Wesley, and others still, almost their equals. Hebrew Prophets, saintly Fathers, and the princes of modern sacred song, unite here in the hymnings of faith and hope, and the adoration of love, “Unto Him that sitteth upon the throne and unto the Lamb!" ali bit Esote tu

Gathered from such sources, and formed on such principles, the book is now reverently presented to the people of God, in the earnest hope that it may contribute to a more direct and a purer worship in their sweet and holy service of song.

INVOCATION.

C. P. M. THOU God of power, thou God of love, 1 Whose glory fills the realms above,

Whose praise archangels sing, And veil their faces while they cry, Thrice Holy, to their God Most High,

Thrice Holy, to their King2 Thee as our God we too would claim, And bless the Saviour's precious name,

Through whom this grace is given; He bore the curse to sinners due, He forms our ruined souls anew,

And makes us heirs of heaven.
3 The veil that hides thy glory rend,
And here in saving power descend,

And fix thy blest abode;
Here to our hearts thyself reveal,
And let each waiting spirit feel
Thy presence, 0 our God.

C. M.
CATHERED together in thy name,
U As worshippers are we,
Thy faithful promise then fulfil,

And, Lord, amongst us be.
Though humble in the sight of men

May seem the house of prayer, '.

3

The earth can boast no prouder fane,

If thou be present there.
2 Thou, whose unbounded majesty

The heavens cannot contain,
Whose glory in the universe

Hath a perpetual reign;
Whose power and wisdom, love and truth,

Are evermore the same;
Lord, be with all the souls on earth
That gather in thy name!

8s, 7 & 4s.
IN thy name, O Lord, assembling,
1 We, thy people, now draw near:
Teach us to rejoice with trembling;
Speak, and let thy servants hear:

Hear with meekness

Hear thy word with godly fear. 2 While our days on earth are lengthen’d,

May we give them, Lord, to thee:
Cheer'd by hope, and daily strengthen’d,
May we run, nor weary be;

Till thy glory
Without cloud in heaven we see.
3 There, in worship purer, sweeter,

All thy people shall adore;
Sharing then in rapture greater
Than they could conceive before:

Full enjoyment-
Full and pure, for evermore.

L. M.
THY presence, gracious God, afford;
1 Prepare us to receive thy word :
