3 Still we wait for thine appearing ;

Life and joy thy beams impart,
Chasing all our fears, and cheering

Every meek and contrite heart.
4 Save us in thy great compassion,

O thou prince of peace and love!
Give the knowledge of salvation,

Fix our hearts on things above. 5 By thine all-sufficient merit

Every burdened soul release;
Every weary, wandering spirit
Guide into thy perfect peace.

Our Refuge.
1 Jesus! Savior of my soul,

Let me to thy shelter fly,
While the raging billows roll,
While the tempest still is high;

0 my Savior, hide,
Till the storm of life

past; Safe into the haven guide ;

0, receive my soul at last. 2 Other refuge have I none;

Helpless hangs my soul on thee;
Leave, ah! leave me not alone,
Still support and comfort me:
All my trust on thee is stayed,
All my help from thee I bring ;
Cover my defenceless head

With the shadow of thy wing. 3 Thou, O Christ, art all I want;

All in all in thee I find :
Raise the fallen, cheer the faint,

999

Heal the sick, and lead the blind. Plenteous grace with thee is found, Grace to pardon all our sin; Let the healing streams abound: Make and keep us pure within.

ANONYMOUS. God's Servant. 1 Thus saith the Lord who built the heavens,

And bade the planets roll,
Who peopled all the climes of earth,

And formed the human soul :-
2 Behold my Servant; see him rise

Exalted in my might;
Him have I chosen, and in him

I place supreme delight.
3.On him, in rich effusion poured,

My spirit shall descend;
My truth and judgment he shall show

To earth's remotest end.
4 • The progress of his zeal and

power Shall never know decline, Till foreign lands and distant isles

Receive the law divine.'

O thou prince of peace and love!

Fix our hearts on things above. 5 By thine all-sufficient merit

Every burdened soul release ;
Every weary, wandering spirit

Let me to thy shelter fly,
While the raging billows roll,
While the tempest still is high;
Hide me, 0 my Savior, hide,
Till the storm of life is past;
Safe into the haven guide;

O, receive my soul at last. 2 Other refuge have I none;

Helpless hangs my soul on thee; Leave, ah! leave me not alone, Still support and comfort me: All my trust on thee is stayed, All my help from thee I bring; Cover my defenceless head

All in all in thee I find:
Raise the fallen, cheer the faint,

Our Shepherds Ps. 23.
1 WHILE my Redeemer's near,

My shepherd and my guide,
I bid farewell to anxious fear;

My wants are all supplied.
2 To ever-fragrant meads
Where rich abundance grows,

223

His gracious hand indulgent leads,

And guards my sweet repose.
3 Along the lovely scene

Cool waters gently roll,
Transparent, sweet, and all serene,

To cheer my fainting soul.
4 Here let my spirit rest;

How sweet a lot is mine!
With pleasure, food, and safety, blest;

Beneficence divine !
5 Dear Shepherd, if I stray,

My wandering feet restore,
To thy fair pastures guide my way,

And let me rove no more.
6 Unworthy as I am

Of thy protecting care,
Jesus, I plead thy gracious name,

For all my hopes are there.

*BEDDOME. The Morning Star. 1 YE worlds of light, that roll so near

The Savior's throne of shining bliss,
O tell how mean your glories are

How faint and few, compared with his ! 2 We sing the bright and morning Star,

Jesus, the spring of light and love:
See, how its rays, diffused from far,

Conduct us to the realms above ! 3 Its cheering beams, spread wide abroad,

Point out the wildered Christian's way:
Still, as he goes, he finds the road,
Enlightened with a constant day.

4 Thus, when the eastern wise men brought

Their royal gifts, a star appears
Directs them to the babe they sought,

And guides their steps, and calms their fears. 5 When shall we reach the heavenly place

Where this bright star shall brightest shine ?
Leave far behind these scenes of night,
And view a lustre so divine ?

Jacob's Star.
1 Sons of men, behold from far,

Hail the long-expected star!
Jacob's star, thai gilds the night,

Guiding wildered men aright. 2 Mild it shines on all beneath,

Piercing through the shades of death,
Scattering error's wide-spread night,

Kindling darkness into light, 3 Nations all, remote and near,

Haste to see your Lord appear;
Haste, for him

your hearts

prepare,
Meet him manifested there!
4 There behold the day-spring rise,

Pouring light on mortal eyes ;
See it chase the shades away,
Shining to the perfect day.

His gracious hand indulgent leads,

And guards my sweet repose.
3 Almang the lovely scene

Cool waters gently roll,
Tralowreal, snect, and all serene,

To creer my fainting soul.
4 Here let my spirit rest;

How sweet a lot is mine!
With pleasure, food, and safety, blest;

Beneticence divine!
5 Dear Shepherd, if I stray,

My wandering feet restore,
To the fair pastures guide my way,

And let me rove no more.

S. STREETER. The Sun of Righteousness. 1 WHAT heavenly light is that which shines

In soft refulgence from the east,
And, pouring splendor through all climes,
Makes every child of sorrow blest?

15

2 It is the Sun of Righteousness,

The brightness of the great I AM!
In him Jehovah manifests

His mercy, love, and grace to man. 3 God made from darkness light to shine;

And, through the mighty Savior's grace, Will give the light of life divine

To every child of Adam's race.
4 Immortal Source of light and life,

In brighter flames of brilliance move,
Till all are turned from sin and strife,
To sing the deathless song of love.

WATTS. Imitating Christe 1 My dear Redeemer, and my Lord,

I read my duty in thy word;
But in thy life the law appears

Drawn out in living characters.
2 Such was thy truth, and such thy zeal,

Such deference to thy Father's will,
Such love, and meekness so divine,

I would transcribe, and make them' mine. 3 Cold mountains, and the midnight air,

Witnessed the fervor of thy prayer ;
The desert thy temptations knew,
Thy conflict, and thy victory too.
Be thou my pattern ; make me bear
More of thy gracious image here;
Then God, the judge, shall own my name
Among the followers of the Lamb.
