Qmniscient God, thy piercing eye
Can every secret thought explore:
O may thy grace our hearts refine
And fix our thoughts on things divine.

3 The word of life dispensed to-day
Invites us to a heavenly feast.
May every ear the call obey;
Be every heart a humble guest;
O bid the wretched sons of need
On soul-reviving dainties feed.

4 Thy Spirit's powerful aid impart;
O may thy word, with life divine,
Engage the ear, and warm the heart;
Then shall the day indeed be thine;
Then shall our souls adoring own
The grace which calls us to thy throne.

Sabbath on Earth, and in Heaven. Ps. 92.

1 Sweet is the work, my God, my King,
To praise thy name, give thanks, and sing;
To show thy love by morning light,
And talk of all thy truth at night.

2 Sweet is the day of sacred rest!
No mortal cares shall seize my breast.
Q may my heart in tune be found,
Like David's harp of solemn sound.

3 My heart shall triumph in the Lord,
And bless his works, and bless his word:
Thy works of grace, how bright they shine !
How deep thy counsels, how divine!

4 And I shall share a glorious art
When * hath well refined my heart,

Rejoicing in the Lord's Day.
1 WELcome, sweet day of rest,
That saw the Lord arise;
Welcome to this reviving breast,
And these rejoicing eyes.

2 The King himself comes near,
And feasts his saints to-day:
Here we may sit, and see him here,
And love, and praise, and pray. |
3 One day amidst the place -
Where my dear Lord hath been,
Is sweeter than ten thousand days |
Of folly and of sin. |

4 My willing soul would stay

In such a frame as this, : Till called to leave this house of clay l For everlasting bliss. | §

Thou day of sacred rest! }
We hail thy glad return: h

We soar to reach immortal joys.

And fill his throne of grace;
Thy sceptre, Lord, extend,
ile we address thy face.
Olet us feel thy quickening word,
And o to know and fear the Lord.
