4 By thine own eternal spirit

Rule in all our hearts alone;
By thine all-sufficient merit
Raise us to thy glorious throne.

252. C. M.

ANONYMOUS. The Same. 1 The race that long in darkness pined

Have seen a glorious light;
The people dwell in day, who dwelt

In death's surrounding night.
2 To hail thy rise, thou better Sun,

The gathering nations come
Joyous, as when the reapers bear

The harvest treasures home. 3 To us a Child of hope is born,

To us a Son is given ;
Him shall the tribes of earth obey,

Him, all the hosts of heaven. 4 His name shall be the Prince of Peace,

Whose rule shall stretch abroad,
The Wonderful, the Counsellor,

The great and mighty Lord. 5 His power increasing still shall spread;

His reign no end shall know; Justice shall guard his throne above,

And peace abound below.

1 Our Lord shall be our hiding-place,

A covert from the storm;
And, by the riches of his grace,

Secure from every harm.

2 As in a dry and barren place

Rivers of water flow,
Jesus the riches of his grace

Makes fainting mortals know. 3 As a tall shadow of a rock

Within a weary land,
Is Jesus to his fainting flock,

He guards them with his hand. 4 Clearness of sight he will bestow,

Our dimness take away,
And make us all his goodness know

In an eternal day. 5 There we shall hear the joyful sound,

Salvation in the Lord;
And on the fair celestial ground

Our thankful songs record.

254. C. M. ANONYMOUS

A Name above every Name. 1 Jesus! exalted far on high,

To whom a name is given, -
A name surpassing every name

That's known in earth or heaven! 2 Before thy throne shall every knee

Bow down with one accord;
Before thy throne shall every tongue

Confess that thou art Lord.
3 O may that mind in us be formed,

Which shone so bright in thee :
An humble, meek, and lowly mind,
From pride and envy

free!
4 To others we would stoop, and learn

To emulate thy love;
So shall we bear thine image here,
And share thy throne above.

4 By thine own eternal spirit

Rule in all our hearts alone;
By thine all-sufficient merit
Raise us to thy glorious throne.

RICHARDS.
Our Comforter.
1 JESUS, comforter divine !

Consolations, Lord, are thine;
Mightiest comforts, full of good,

Worthy of the living God.
2 Thou shalt wipe all tears away

Mid the blessed realms of day
Thou shalt hush each rising sigh;

Sorrow, pain, and death, shall die.
3 Highest praises wait thy name,

Great unchanging, glorious same;
Jesus, comforter divine !
Praises, praises, Lord, be thine.

MEDLEY. The Same. 1 COME, ye who know the Savior's love,

And his indulgent mercies prove,
In cheerful songs bis praise express,
For he'll not leave

you

comfortless. 2 He ever acts the Savior's part,

With strong compassions in his heart;
The least and weakest saint he'll bless,

Nor will he leave him comfortless.
3 His wisdom, goodness, power, and care,

They largely, sweetly, daily share ;
He will their every fear suppress,

Nor will he leave them comfortless. 4 While they sojourners are below,

And travel through this world of woe,
In storms and floods of deep distress
He will not leave them comfortless.

5 So when they pass death's gloomy vale,
And flesh and mortal powers shall fail,
Their dying lips shall then confess,
He does not leave them comfortless.

6 Thanks to thy name, our dearest Lord,
For every promise in thy word;
But, O, with this our hearts impress,
“I will not leave you comfortless.’

257. L. M. WATTs. The Corner-Stone. Ps. 118.

1 Lo! what a glorious corner-stone
The Jewish builders did refuse;
But God hath built his church thereon,
In spite of envy and the Jews.
2 Great God! the work is all divine,
The joy and wonder of our eyes;
This is the day that proves it thine,
The day that saw our Savior rise.
3 Sinners rejoice, and saints be glad;
Hosanna! let his name be blest!
Althousand honors on his head,
With peace, and light, and glory rest!
4 In God's own name he comes to bring
Salvation to our dying race;
Let the whole church address their king
With hearts of joy, and songs of praise.

258. C. M. WATTs. The Same. Ps. 118.

1 BEHold the sure foundation-stone
Which God in Zion lays,
To build our heavenly hopes upon,

2 Chosen of God, to sinners dear,

And saints adore the name;
They trust their whole salvation here,

Nor shall they suffer shame. 3 The foolish builders, scribe and priest,

Reject it with disdain;
Yet on this Rock the church shall rest,

And envy rage in vain. 4 What though the gates of hell withstood,

Yet must this building rise:
'Tis thine own work, almighty God,

And wondrous in our eyes.

259. S. M.

WATTS. The Same. Ps. 118. 1 See what a living stone

The builders did refuse;
Yet God hath built his church thereon,

In spite of envious Jews.
2 The scribe and angry priest

Reject thine only Son;
Yet on this Rock shall Zion rest,

As the chief comer-stone.
3 The work, O Lord, is thine,

And wondrous in our eyes ; This day declares it all divine,

This day did Jesus rise. 4 This is the glorious day

That our Redeemer made;
Let us rejoice, and sing, and pray-

Let all the church be glad. 5 Hosanna to the king

Of David's royal blood ! Bless him, ye saints: he comes to bring

Salvation from God.
