3 O Jesus ride on! thy kingdom is glori

ous; Over sin, death and hell thou wilt make us

victorious. Thy name shall be prais'd in the great con

gregation, . And saints shall delight in ascribing salva

tion. Hallelujah to the Lamb who has bless'd us with pardon, And we'll praise him again when we pass over Jordan.

4. When on Zion, we stand, having gain'd the blest shore, With our harps in our hand, we will praise evermore; We’ll range the hlest fields, on the banks or the river, And sing hallelujah forever and ever. Hallelujah, &c.

Hardly, sure, can they be worse;
Who have never heard his name.

6 Yet I mourn my stubborn will,
Find my sin a grief a thrall;
Should I grieve for what I feel,
If I did not love at all?

7 Could I joy his saints to meet, Choose the ways I once abhorr’d— Find, at times, the promise sweet, * I did not love the Lord?

8 Lord, decide the doubtful case!
Thou art thy people's sun;
Shine upon thy work of grace,
If it be indeed begun.

9 Let me love thee more and more,
If I love at all, I pray;
If I have not lov’d before,
Help me to begin to day.

E wander in a thorny maze,
A vale of doubts and fears;
A night illum'd with sickly rays,
A wilderness of tears.

2 We wander, bound to empty show,
The slaves of boasted will;
We wander, dupes to hope untrue,
And love to wander still. -

3 We wander—while unfading joy,
We ne'er with zest approve;
The bliss, that sparkles to destroy,
Secures our warmest love.


4 Some syren leads our steps astray,
But speaks no peace within;
We wander in a flow'ry way,
We wander heirs of sin!

s 5 We wander, but tho’ oft we roam Led by al urements strong; Yet from our heav'nly Father's home, * We would not wander long.

6 Cleanse us, O Saviour, from this stain,
In mercy’s living flood;
Restore the lost, and bring again
The wand'rers back to God.

HILE with ceaseless course the sun, W W Hasted through the former year, Many souls their race have run, Never more to meet us here; Fixt in an eternal state, They have done with all below; We a little longer wait, But how little none can know,

2. As the winged arrow flies,
Speedily the mark to find;
As the lightning from the skies
Darts, and leaves no trace behind;
Swiftly thus our fleeting days
Bear us down life's rapid stream;
Upwards, Lord, our spirits raise,
All below is but a dream,

3 Thanks for mercies past receive,
Pardon of our sins renew;
Teach us, henceforth, how to live
With eternity in view.
Bless thy word to young and old,
Fill us with a Saviour's love; -
And when life's short tale is told,
May we dwell with thee above.

ET us rise and go to Zion's hill,
L Where all in peace and glory dwell,
And sit and sing to God our King,
And praise his name forevermore.


I’ll march to Canaan's land,
I'll land on Canaan's shore, A
