2 Teach us in life and death to bless
The Lord, our strength and righteousness;
Then shall we better sing Thy love. 110 LORD of hosts, how bright, how fair,
E'en on earth Thy temples are;
Much of heaven, and much of Thee,
Peace and joy to heal our woe;
Here Thou mak'st Thy glories known;
Taste Thy love, and sing Thy praise.
We our happy lives employ ;
111 MAY the grace of Christ our Saviour,
And the Father's boundless love, With the Holy Spirit's favour,
Rest upon us from above !
With each other and the Lord,
in sweet communion,
112 LORD, dismiss us with Thy blessing,
Fill our hearts with joy and peace ;
O refresh us,
2 Thanks we give, and adoration,
For Thy Gospel's joyful sound;
May Thy presence
3 So whene'er the signal given
Calls us from this earth away,
May we, ready,
113 COME, Christian Brethren, ere we part,
Join every voice and every heart,
2 Christians! we here may meet no more ;
But there is yet a happier shore ;
BAPTISM. 114 JESUS, we lift our souls to Thee!
Thy Holy Spirit breathe,
Baptiz'd into Thy death!
Thy grace their souls renew;
Thy name and nature too.
115 IN token, child, thou shalt not fear
Christ crucified to own,
And stamp thee his alone.
To glory in his name,
His glory and his shame.
Christ's quarrel to maintain,
Firm at thy post remain.
The path He travellid by,
And sit thee down on high.
We seal thee for his own ; And may
the brow that wears his cror Hereafter share his crown.
116 HEAVENLY FATHER, may Thy love
Beam upon us from above;
In Thy covenant of grace!
Listen to our humble prayer ;
Cleanse this child from nature's guilt.
Thou this infant sanctify;
Seal him to redemption's day.
Holy Spirit, Three in One,
None were more enslav'd than we;
Saviour, now we come to Thee.
How we slighted all Thy love ;
And against Thy mercy strove.
Thine alone, for ever Thine:
118 LORD, shall Thy children come to Thee ?
A boon of love Divine we seek:
2 Lord, shall we come,-and come again?
Oft as we see yon table spread,
The wine poured out, the broken bread,
3 Lord, shall we come?-not thus alone,
At holy time, or solemn rite,
Through weal or woe, in gloom or light,
119 THY solemn vows are on me, Lord;
Thou shalt receive my praise ;
How righteous are Thy ways :
2 Thou hast redeem'd my soul from death :
Oh set Thy pris'ner free,
May be employ'd for Thee.
