With blooming health each face adorn, And change the gloomy night to morn. 5 Exult, our souls, with holy joy; Hosannas be our blest employ, Salvation your eternal theme,
And swell the song with Jesus' name.
Sun of Righteousness.
1 TO thee, O God, we homage pay, Source of the light that rules the day! Which, while it gilds all nature's frame, Reflects thy rays and speaks thy name. 2 In louder strains we sing that grace Which gives the Sun of Righteousness, Whose nobler light salvation brings, And scatters healing from his wings. 3 Still on our hearts may Jesus shine, With beams of light and love divine; Quickened by him our souls shall live, And cheered by him shall grow and thrive. 4 O may his glories stand confessed, From north to south, from east to west; Successful may his gospel run,
Wide as the circuit of the sun.
5 When shall that radiant scene arise,
C. M. DODDRIDGE.
The Lord our Righteousness.
1 SAVIOUR divine! we praise thy name,
2 Guilty we plead before thy throne,
Jesus, stretch forth thy gracious arm,
3 Pardon and peace, and lively hope,
Israel and Judah soon shall change.
4 With joy we taste that manna now, Thy mercy scatters down;
We pay our humble vows to thee,
The Rock of Ages.
1 ROCK of ages! cleft we see,
3 While we draw this fleeting breath,

1 JESUS, Saviour of our souls,
With the shadow of thy wing.
2 Other refuge have we none-
Hide us, O our Saviour! hide,
L. M. STEELE.
Saviour-the only one.
1 JESUS, the spring of joys divine,
Whence all our hopes and comforts flow;
Can save from everlasting wo.
To the bright realms of endless day.
Direct our steps, and cheer each heart.
S. M. BEDDOME.
1 GREAT Shepherd of the flock,
2 From every devious path,
Our wandering feet restore;
3 With thirst and hunger pained,
4 Here let us often taste
Star of Bethlehem.
1 SONS of men, behold from far,
3 Nations all, remote and near,
4 There behold the day-spring rise,
L. M. H. K. WHITE.
1 WHEN marshall'd on the mighty plain, The glittering host bestud the sky; One star alone, of all the train,
Can fix the sinner's wandering eye.
2 Hark! hark! to God the chorus breaks,
3 Once on the raging seas we rode,
The storm was loud-the night was dark, The ocean yawn'd-and rudely blow'd The wind that toss'd our foundering bark,
4 Deep horror then our vitals froze,
Death-struck, we ceas'd the tide to stem; When suddenly a star arose,
It was the star of Bethlehem.
5 It was our guide, our light, our all,
6 Now safely moor'd-our perils o'er,
For ever and for evermore,
S. M. BEDDOME.
1 JESUS, we bless thy name,
Thou teacher sent from heaven; How sweet, how infinitely sweet, The lessons thou hast given! 2 When storms and tempests rise, Thy word creates a calm; Where sin its mortal wounds has made, It proves a healing balm.
3 Never did angels' tongue
So charm the human ear,
L. M. PRATT'S COLL.
Hosanna to the Son of David.
1 WHAT are those soul-reviving strains,
The Saviour comes!-and babes proclaim
3 Nor these alone their voice shall raise,
5 Proclaim hosannas loud and clear;
