2 Ye are travelling home to God
In the way the fathers trod:
ye Soon their happiness shall see. 3 Shout, ye ransom'd flock, and blest!
Ye on Jesus' throne shall rest:
your seat is now prepar’d; There your kingdom and reward. 4 Fear not, brethren! joyful stand
On the borders of your land :
Bids you, undismayed, go on. 5 Lord, submissive may we go,
Gladly leaving all below:
S.M.— The Song of the Redeemed. 1 AWAKE, and sing the song
Of Moses and the Lamb!
To praise the Saviour's name. 2 Sing of his dying love,
Sing of his rising power:
For us whose sins he bore. 3 Ye pilgrims on the road
To Zion's city, sing!
În Christ the eternal King! 4 Soon shall we hear him say,
“ Ye blessed children, come!” Soon will he call us hence away,
To our eternal home.
There shall our raptur'd tongues
His endless praise proclaim; And sweeter voices tune the song
"Of Moses and the Lamb!”
Let sorrow raise the downcast eye;
And dry the penitential tear. 2 “ Look to the cross,” she cries, “ and view
“ What glorious victim groan’d for you!
• Proclaim the kind, forgiving God. 3 “ Look to the bright ethereal plains,
“There your exalted Jesus reigns,
" To comfort wo, and aid distress.
New life to my desponding heart;
Of peace restor’d, and promis'd heaven. 5 My God! the vast, amazing grace,
Claims all my wonder, all my praise;
Glorious in holiness and might,
And views our offerings with delight. 2 Through Christ our grateful songs will please,
Our acts of mercy, kindness, love;
In his regard who reigns above.
3 As he his various gifts imparts,
With liberal hand dispense them here; Rejoice the widows' aching hearts,
Comfort the sick, the orphan cheer. 4 Protect the friendless and the poor,
And teach the dark, uncultur'd mind
And love the Saviour of mankind.
C.M.- The Duty and Pleasure of supporting Charity Schools. 1 BLESS'D is the man whose heart expands
At melting pity's call,
Like heavenly manna fall.
And God will well approve,
And their Creator love.
And turn the rising race
To seek redeeming grace.
To virtue and to truth.
To aid this good design;
The goodness of our heavenly King;
2 His gifts for thanks perpetual call,
"Tis to his love we owe our all; Our health and strength, our lives and friends,
With every good his bounty sends. 3 Our highest praise to him be given,
For sending us his Son from heaven;
From foes without, and foes within.' 4 O may we all his grace receive,
His mercy trust, his truths believe,
And follow on to know the Lord.
And guide and guard us to the end;
509. L.M.- Poor Children praying for themselves and their Benefactors. 1 GOD over all, the sun by day
Reveals thy glory in his light; The moon and stars thy voice obey,
And mark thy presence through the night. 2 God over all, the earth that yields
Her flowers and fruits at thy command, From mountains, rivers, woods, and fields,
Pours the rich bounties of thy hand. 3 To us the poorest of the poor,
High as thou art thy care descends;
Thou art our Father, these our friends. 4 Are these our friends?-Thou, God of grace,
Reward their love a thousand fold;
Their best, their dearest friend behold.
5 Art Thou our Father? —we confess,
With grief and shame, our sin and guilt; O turn from our unrighteousness,
Look on thy Son,-his blood was spilt. 6 He bore the chastening of thy rod,
That we might by his stripes be heal’d; He died for us, the Lamb of God!
He rose, and our redemption seald. 7 And shall we, dare we, can we still
Resist thy fear, thy love despise? No, take us,--soul, affection, will,
A free and living sacrifice.
510. L.M.-Praise and Prayer of Children in a Charity School. 1 WHILE saints and angels, glorious King!
Day without night, thy praises sing;
The songs of children reach the skies. 2 Amidst the whole creation's cares,
The meanest worm thy bounty shares;
Thou knew'st us, though we knew Thee not:
Our earthly comforts, home, and friends.

Of sin and error, God of Light!
