Do all to the Glory of God
HYMN 617. C.M.

The same.
SUMMON'd my labour to renew,

And glad to act my part,
Lord, in thy name my work I do,

And with a single heart.
2 End of my every action, thou,

In all things may I see; Accept my hallow'd labour now

I do it unto thee. 3 Whate'er the Father views as thine,

He views with gracious eyes : Jesus, this mean oblation join

To thy great sacrifice. 4 Stamp'd with an infinite desert,

My work he then shall own : Well pleased with me, when mine thou art, And I his favour'd son, C. WESLEY,

HYMN 618. S.M.

Do all to the Glory of God.
God of almighty love,

By whose sufficient grace,
I lift my heart to things above,
• And humbly seek thy face;
Through Jesus Christ the just,

My faint desires receive;
And let me in thy goodness trust,

And to thy glory live. 2 Whate'er I say or do,

Thy glory be my aim;
My offerings all be offer'd through
1. The ever-blessed name :
Jesus, my single eye

Be fix'd on thee alone;
Thy name be praised on earth, on high:
Thy will by all be done.

Spirit of faith, inspire

My consecrated heart;
Fill me with pure celestial fire,

With all thou hast and art:
My feeble mind transform,

And perfectly renew'd,
Into a saint exalt a worm,

And raise me up to God. C. WESLEY.

HYMN 619. 8-7's & 6's. “ Not slothful in business, fervent in spirit,

serving the Lord."
Lo! I come with joy, to do

The Master's blessed will:
Him in outward works pursue,

And serve his pleasure still:
Faithful to my Lord's commands,
I still would choose the better part-
Serve with careful Martha's hands

And loving Mary's heart.
2 Careful without care I am,

Nor feel my happy toil :
Kept in peace in Jesu's name,

Supported by his smile:
Joyful thus my faith to show,
I find his service my reward;
Every work I do below,

I do it to the Lord.
Thou, O Lord, in tender love,

Dost all my burdens bear;
Lift my heart to things above,

And fix it ever there :
Calm on tumult's wheel I sit,
'Midst busy multitudes alone;
Sweetly waiting at thy feet,

Till all thy will be done.
Oh, that all the art may know

Of living thus to thee;
Find their heaven begun below,

And here thy glory see:

The Christian Mariner.

Walk in all the works prepared
By thee to exercise their grace;
Till they gain their full reward,
And see thy glorious face. C. WESLEY.
Hymn 620. 6-8's.

Divine Guidance.
CAPTAIN of Israel's host, and guide

Of all who seek the land above,
Beneath thy shadow we abide,

The cloud of thy protecting love:
Our strength thy grace, our rule thy word,

Our end the glory of the Lord. 2 By thy unerring Spirit led,

We shall not in the desert stray;
We shall not full direction need,

Nor miss our providential way;
As far from danger as from fear,
While Love, Almighty Love, is near.

C. WESLEY.

SECTION VI.

MARINERS.

Hymn 621. 4-6's & 2-8's.

The Christian Mariner.
JESUS, at thy command,

I launch into the deep;
And leave my native land,

Where sin lulls all asleep:
For thee I fain would all resign,
And sail to heaven with thee and thine,
What though the seas are broad;

What though the waves are strong;
What though temptations loud

Distress me all along!
Yet what are seas and stormy wind,
Compared with Christ, the sinner's Friend?

The Wonders of the Lord in the Deep.

3 Christ is my pilot wise:

My compass is his word:
My soul each storm defies,

While I have such a Lord:
" I trust his faithfulness and power,

To save me in the trying hour. 4 By faith I see the land,

The haven of endless rest;
My soul, thy wings expand,

And fly to Jesu's breast!
Oh, may I reach the heavenly shore,

Where winds and seas distress no more! 6 Come, heavenly Wind, and blow

A prosperous gale of grace,
To waft from all below,

To heaven, my destined place;
Then, in full sail, my port I'll find,
And leave the world and sin behind.

TOPLADY:

HYMN 622. C.M.
The Wonders of the Lord in the Deep
The northern pole, and southern, rest

On God's supporting hand :
Darkness and day, from east to west,

Move round at his command. 2 He bids the liquid waters flow,

To their appointed deep :
The flowing seas their limits know,

And their own station keep.
3 Thy words the raging winds control,

And rule the boisterous deep;
Thou makest the sleeping billows roll,

The rolling billows sleep.
4 Rejoice, ye seamen, in the Lord :

This work belongs to you;
Sing ot his name, his ways, his word,

How holy, just, and true.

Whilenis endine storm proans

Early Piety.
HYMN 623. C.M.

Christ a Refuge.
A SHIPWRECK'D world bestrews the shores

Of vast eternity;
While Sinai's thundering tempest roars

Man's endless destiny. 2 Wreck'd in the storm which sin has raised,

The whole creation groans;
While fiery hills their lightnings blaze

'Mid nature's dying moans. 3 But grace—what wondrous grace has done!

Sinners, be not afraid;
God loved the world, and gave his Son,

And Christ the storm allay'd.
4 Here's refuge from the furious blast :

To Christ let sinners steer:
On him be my soul's anchor cast;

Millions have harbour'd here.

PHYMN 624. C.M.

Early Piety. RELIGION is the chief concern

sern Of mortals here below: May I its great importance learn;

Its sovereign virtue know, 2 Religion should our thoughts engage

Amidst our youthful bloom : "Twill fit us for declining age,

And for the awful tomb.
8 Oh, may my heart, by grace renew'd,

Be my Redeemer's throne;
And be my stubborn will subdued,

His government to own.
