2 I feel a strong immortal hope,
Which bears my mournful spirits up

Beneath its mountain-load;
Redeem'd from death, and grief, and pain,
I soon shall find my friend again

Within the arms of God. 3 Pass a few fleeting moments more And death the blessing shall restore

Which death hath snatch'd away; For me thou wilt the summons send, And give me back my parted friend

In that eternal day.


L.M.- The fear of death overcome.
1 I CANNOT shun the stroke of death

Lord, help me to surmount the fear;
That when I must resign my breath,

Serene my summons I may hear. 2 'Tis sin gives venom to the dart

In me let every sin be slain ; From secret faults, Lord, cleanse


heart, From wilful sins my hands restrain. 3 May I, my God, with holy zeal,

Closely the ends of life pursue,
Seek thy whole pleasure to fulfil,

And honour thee in all I do.
4 Let all my bliss and treasure lie,

Where in thy light, I light shall see :
The soul may freely dare to die

That longs to be possess'd of Thee. 5 Say thou art mine, and chase the gloom

Thick hanging o'er the vale of death : Then shall I fearless meet my doom,

And as a Victor yield my breath.


C.M.-A Song of Praise.
1 IN Thee I live, and move, and am;

Thou deal’st me out my days:
As thou renew'st my being, Lord,

Let me renew thy praise.
2 Naked came I into this world,

And nothing with me brought;
And nothing have I here desery'd;

Yet have I lacked nought.
3 I do not bless my labouring hand,

My labouring head, or chance;
Thy providence, most gracious God,

mine inheritance. 4 Thy bounty gives me bread with peace,

A table free from strife:
Thy blessing is the staff of bread,

Which is the staff of life. 5 The daily favours of


I cannot sing at large:
Yet let me make this holy boast,

I am the Almighty's charge.
6 Lord, in the day, Thou art about

The paths wherein I tread;
And in the night, when I lie down,
Thou art about


7 A thousand deaths I daily ’scape,

I pass by many a pit,
I sail by many dreadful rocks,

Where others have been split.
8 Whilst others in God's prisons lie,

Bound with affliction's chains,
I walk at large, secure and free

From sickness and from pains.

9 'Tis not, my God, myself alone,

But mine to Thee I owe;
Thou mad'st me many out of one;

O let thy praises grow.
10 O let my house a temple be,

That I and mine may sing
Hosannahs to thy Majesty,

And praise our heavenly King. 11 'Tis Thou hast crown'd my actions, Lord,

With good success, each day; This crown, together with myself,

At thy blest feet I lay.


S.M.-God all-sufficient. 1 WHEN earthly comforts dic,

And thorns o'erspread the road, Whither, O! whither shall I Ay,

But unto thee, my God! 2 When anxious thoughts arise,

And sorrows compass round, Amidst ten thousand enemies,

In thee my help is found. 3 Then at thy feet I'll bow,

And in thy mercy trust:
If I am sav'd, how good art thou!

And if I perish just. 4

Perish! it cannot be;

Since Jesus shed his blood;
The promise is both rich and free,

And he will make it good.
