4 Guardian Spirit, lest we stray,

Keep us in the heavenly way!
Bring us to Thy courts above,
Realms of light and endless love!

TRINITY SUNDAY.

74 WE give immortal praise

To God the Father's love,
For all our comforts here,

And better hopes above;
He sent his own eternal Son

To die for sins that man had done.
2 To God the Son belongs

Immortal glory too,
Who bought us with his blood

From everlasting woe;
And now He lives, and now He reigns,

And sees the fruit of all his pains.
3 To God the Spirit's name

Immortal worship give,
Whose new-creating power

Makes the dead sinner live ;
His work completes the great design,

And fills the soul with joy divine.
4 Almighty God, to Thee

Be endless honour done,-
The sacred Persons Three,
The
power

and Godhead one : Where reason fails with all her powers, There faith prevails, and love adores.

75 FATHER of heaven, whose love profound

A ransom for our souls hath found,
Before Thy throne we sinners bend;

To us Thy pardoning love extend. 2 Almighty Son, Incarnate Word,

Our Prophet, Priest, Redeemer, Lord,
Before Thy throne we sinners bend ;

To us Thy saving grace extend. 3 Eternal Spirit, by whose breath

The soul is raised from sin and death,
Before Thy throne we sinners bend;

To us Thy quickening power extend. 4 Jehovah, Father, Spirit, Son,

Mysterious Godhead! Three in One!
Before Thy throne we sinners bend;
Grace, pardon, life to us extend.

76 HOLY, holy, holy, Lord,

God of hosts, by all ador’d,
Who dost ev'ry gift confer,
Father, Saviour, Comforter,
Earth and heav'n are full of Thee,

Of Thy glorious majesty!
2 Jesus, hail, Thou great I AM!

Worthy thou, the dying Lamb.
Angel- harps resound thy praise,
Saints adore in humbler lays;
Every creature bows the knee,
Worshipping Thy majesty.

3 All' as one adore the Lord,

Father, Spirit, and the Word.
Hail, Thou glorious Three in One !
By the Spirit, through the Son,
Glory to the Father be,
Glory to Thy majesty!

77 GREAT the joy, the union sweet,

When the saints together meet ; When, their theme of praise the same, They exalt Jehovah's name.

2 Sing we then eternal love,

Such as did the Father move:
He beheld the world undone,
Lov'd the world, and gave his Son.

3 Sing: the Son's unbounded love;

How he left the realms above,
Took our nature and our place,
Liv'd and died to save our race.

4 Sing we, too, the Spirit's love :

With our stubborn hearts he strove,
Chas'd the mists of sin away,
Turn'd our night to glorious day.

5 Great the joy, the union sweet,

When the saints in glory meet;
Where the theme is still the same,
Where they sing Jehovah's name.

78 FATHER, Son, and Holy Ghost, ,

One in Three, and Three in One,
As by the celestial host,

Let Thy will on earth be done!
Praise by all to Thee be given,
Glorious Lord of earth and heaven!

2 If a worm so mean as I

Can Thy glory, Lord, forth shew,
All my actions sanctify,
And
my

inmost soul renew :
Claim me for thy service !-claim
All I have, and all I am !

3 Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,

One in Three, and Three in One!
As by the celestial host,

Let Thy will on earth be done !
Praise by all to Thee be given,
Glorious Lord of earth and heaven!

HOLY SCRIPTURE.

79 BLEST book of God, that greets mine ear,

With news of saving might;
The fortress of my faith is here,

The star that guides aright.

2 Here is the spring, whence waters flow

To quench my heat of sin;
Here is the tree where truth doth grow

To lead my life therein.

3 Here is the judge that ends the strife

When men's devices fail :
Here is the bread that feeds the life

Which death cannot assail.

4 But help me, Lord, in every case

To read with single eye,
Desiring first, and still thy grace

To understand thereby.
5 The help Thou know'st I need, I crave

That pardon I may win ;
And knowledge due effect may have

To mortify my sin.

80 HOLY Bible, book divine;

Precious treasure ! thou art mine;
Mine, to tell me whence I came;

Mine, to teach me what I am;
2 Mine, to chide me when I rove;

Mine, to show a Saviour's love ;
Mine, art thou to guide my feet;

Mine, to judge, condemn, acquit;
3 Mine, to comfort in distress,

If the Holy Spirit bless;
Mine, to show by living faith

Man can triumph over death !
4 Mine, to tell of joys to come,

And the rebel-sinner's doom :
O! thou precious book divine ;
Precious treasure ! thou art mine.
