Ezekiel's Vision of the dry Bones, Ezek. xxxvii. 3.
1 T OOK down, O Lord! with pitying eye;

See Adam's race in ruin lie;
Sin spreads its trophies o'er the ground,

And scatters slaughter'd heaps around.
3.2 And can these mouldering corpses live?'

And can these perish'd bones revive ?
That, mighty God! to thee is known;

That wondrous work is all thy own.
3 Thy ministers are sent in vain

To prophesy upon the slain ; .


In vain they call, in vain they 'cry,

Till thine almighty aid is nigh.
4 But if thy Spirit deign to breathe,,

Life spreads through all the realms of death;
Dry bones obey thy powerful voice';

They move, they waken, they rejoice. 5 So, when thy trumpet's awful sound

Shall shake the heav'ns and rend the ground,
Dead saints shall from their tombs arise,

And spring to life beyond the skies. . 371 (20 P.) L. M. Wareham 117. Paul's 246,

· Prayer for the whole Congregation.
1 T ORD, in our hearts implant thy fear,

And make and keep us all sîncere;
Draw burthen'd sinners to thy Son,

And make him to his mourners known. 2 Thy richest grace vouchsafe to give

As each is able to receive; -,,
The blessed grief to all impart,
Or joy, or purity of heart..!!
3 Our helpless unbelief remove, '.

And melt us by thy pard’ning love:
Work in us faith, or faith's increase

The dawning or the perfect peace.
4 Give each whate’er for each is best, i

But grant us all the promis'd rest; -
Thy blessing in the means convey, !
Nor empty send one-soul away.
