2 Be Thou near us, blessed Saviour,

Still at morn and eve the same;
Give us faith that cannot waver;
Kindle in us heaven's own flame,-

Blessed Saviour,
Kindle in us heaven's own flame.
3 When the fervent prayer is glowing,

Holy Spirit, hear our prayer;
When the song of praise is flowing,
Let our praise Thine impress bear,-

Holy Spirit,
Let our praise Thine impress bear.

106 GLORIOUS things of thee are spoken,

u Zion, city of our God;
He, whose word shall not be broken,

Formed thee for his own abode.
2 On the Rock of Ages founded,

What can shake thy sure repose ?
With salvation's walls surrounded,

Thou art safe from all thy foes.
3 Round each habitation hov'ring,

See the cloud and fire appear:
For a glory, and a cov’ring,

Showing that the Lord is near.
4 Vain, the world's far-boasted treasures :

Vain, its boasted bliss below;
Solid wealth, and lasting pleasures,

None but Zion's children know.

107 ETERNAL Spirit! God of Truth !

Our contrite hearts inspire;
Kindle the flame of heavenly love,
. And feed the pure desire.
2 Hear, O hear, our supplication,

Blessed Spirit! God of Peace!
Rest upon this congregation,

With the abundance of Thy grace.
3 Author of our new creation,

Bid us all Thine influence prove;
Make our souls Thy habitation ;

Shed abroad the Saviour's love.

108. JESUS, we Thy promise claim,

We are gather'd in Thy name;
In the midst do Thou appear,

Manifest Thy presence here !
2 Sanctify us, Lord, and bless ;

Breathe Thy Spirit, give Thy peace;
Come, and dwell within each heart,

Light, and life, and joy impart !
3 Make us all in Thee complete;

Make us all for glory meet,-
Meet t'appear before Thy sight,
Partners with the saints in light!

1:09 LORD, now we part in Thy blest name,

In which we here together came :
Grant us, our few remaining days,
To work Thy will, and spread Thy praise !

2 Teach us in life and death to bless

The Lord, our strength and righteousness;
And grant us all to meet above !
Then shall we better sing Thy love.

110 LORD of hosts, how bright, how fair,

E'en on earth Thy temples are;
Here Thy waiting people see
Much of heaven, and much of Thee.
2 From Thy gracious presence flow

Peace and joy to heal our woe;
While Thy Spirit's holy fire

Warms our hearts with pure desire.
3 Here we supplicate Thy throne,

Here Thou mak'st Thy glories known;
Here we learn Thy righteous ways,

Taste Thy love, and sing Thy praise.
4 Thus, with songs of sacred joy,

We our happy lives employ;
Love, and long to love Thee more,
Till from earth to heaven we soar.

111 MAY the grace of Christ our Saviour,

1. And the Father's boundless love, With the Holy Spirit's favour,

Rest upon us from above!
2 Thus may we abide in union

With each other and the Lord,
And possess, in sweet communion,

Joys which earth cannot afford.

112 LORD, dismiss us with Thy blessing,

Fill our hearts with joy and peace;
Let us each, Thy love possessing,
Triumph in redeeming grace :

O refresh us,
Travelling through this wilderness !

2 Thanks we give, and adoration,
: For Thy Gospel's joyful sound;
May the fruits of Thy salvation
In our hearts and lives abound;

May Thy presence
. With us evermore be found.

3 So whene'er the signal given

Calls us from this earth away,
Borne on angels' wings to heaven,
Glad the summons to obey,

May we, ready,
Rise and reign in endless day!

113 COME, Christian Brethren, ere we part,

Join every voice and every heart,
One solemn hymn to God to raise,
One final song of grateful praise !

2 Christians! we here may meet no more ;

But there is yet a happier shore ;
And there, releas'd from toil and pain,
There, Brethren, we shall meet again.

BAPTISM.

114. JESUS, we lift our souls to Thee!

Thy Holy Spirit breathe,
And let these little infants be

Baptiz'd into Thy death!
2 O let Thine unction on them rest,

Thy grace their souls renew;
And write within their tender breast

Thy name and nature too.

115 TN token, child, thou shalt not fear

1 Christ crucified to own,
We print the cross upon thee here,

And stamp thee his alone.
2 In token that thou shalt not blush

To glory in his name,
We blazon here upon thy front

His glory and his shame.
3 In token that thou shalt not flinch

Christ's quarrel to maintain,
But ’neath his banner manfully

Firm at thy post remain.
4 In token, child, thou too shalt tread

The path He travell’d by,
Endure the cross, despise the shame,

And sit thee down on high.
5 Thus outwardly and visibly

We seal thee for his own;
And may the brow that wears his cross
Hereafter share his crown.
