L. M. J. NEWTON.
1 BE still, our hearts! these anxious cares To you are burdens, thorns and snares; They cast dishonour on our Lord, And contradict his gracious word. 2 Brought safely by his hand thus far, Why will you now give place to fear? How can you want if he provide, Or lose your way with such a guide? 3 Did ever trouble yet befall,
And he refuse to hear your call;
S. M. BEDDOME.
LET party names no more
Gentile and Jew, and bond and free
Among the saints on earth
Heirs of the same inheritance,
With mutual blessings crowned.
3 Let envy, and ill will
Be banished far away;
Those should in holy friendship dwell,
Thus will the church below
Resemble that above;
Where streams of pleasure always flow,
S. M. VERMONT COLL
LET strife for ever cease,
And envy quit the field;
Come join and live in love and peace,
And to the gospel yield.
Let bitter words no more
3 When bitter words arise,
We would the heart and hands of Christ,
Then why should we contend
And pierce his wounds afresh ?
5 No more we'll feed the flame, Nor judge ourselves too wise;
But search with care to find the beam
Unto the world we'll prove
That we disciples are;
They shall behold us walk in love,
C. M. MONTGOMERY.
Unity of the Spirit in the Bond of Peace,
1 THE glorious universe around,
The heavens with all their train,
Sun, moon and stars, are firmly bound
2 The earth, the ocean, and the sky
3 God in creation thus displays
While all his works with all his ways
4 In one fraternal bond of love,
The saints below and saints above
5 Here, in their house of pilgrimage,
There, through one bright, eternal age,
6 Lord, may our union form a part,
L. M. Mrs. BARBAULD.
1 HOW blest the sacred tie that binds, In union sweet, according minds! How swift the heavenly course they run, Whose hearts and faith and hopes are one! 2 To each, the soul of each, how dear! What jealous love, what holy fear! How doth the generous flame within Refine from earth, and cleanse from sin! 3 Their streaming eyes together flow For human guilt and mortal wo; Their ardent prayers together rise Like mingling flames in sacrifice. 4 Together shall they seek the place Where God reveals his awful face: How high, how strong, their raptures swell, There's none but kindred souls can tell. 5 Nor shall the glowing flame expire, When nature droops her sickening fire; Then shall they meet in realms above, A heaven of joy-because of love.
L. M. BROWNE.
1 AWAKE. my soul! rouse every power,
Let lust and passion reign no more,
3 Confine thy roving appetites;
From this vain world withdraw thine eyes,
With eager zeal pursue the prize;
This course will speak thee truly wise,
C. M. C. WESLEY.
1 WE want a principle within
Of jealous, godly fear;
A sensibility of sin,
A pain to find it near.
2 We want the first approach to feel
To catch the wandering of the will,
3 From thee that we no more may part,
4 Quick as the apple of an eye,
O God, our conscience make! Awake our souls, when sin is nigh, And keep them still awake.
C. M. DODDRIDGE.
1 AWAKE, our drowsy souls, awake,
2 'Tis not this mortal life alone
How can you hope for future bliss,
3 Then to the work of God awake-
4 The awful register goes on,
The account will surely come; And opening day, or closing night May bear us to our doom.
5 Tremendous thought! how deep it strikes! Yet like a dream it flies,
Till God's own voice the slumbers chase
And her rewards more precious are, VT
