And place us, when that journey 's o'er

At thy right hand, O God ! 74. 7 & 6s. M. ANONYMOUS.

Praise for Salvation.
1 TO thee be praise for ever,

Thou glorious King of kings !
Thy wondrous love and favor

Each ransomed spirit sings.
2 We'll celebrate thy glory,

With all thy saints above,
And shout the joyful story
Of thy redeeming love.

S. M.

Greatness of God's Mercy.
1 MY soul, repeat His praise

Whose mercies are so great,
Whose anger is so slow to rise,

So ready to abate.
2 His power subdues our sins,

And his forgiving love,
Far as the east is from the west,

Doth all our guilt remove.
3 High as the heavens are raised

Above the ground we tread,
. So far the riches of his grace

Our highest thoughts exceed. 76.

C. M.

Praise to God from all Nations.
1 0, ALL ye nations, praise the Lord,

Each with a different tongue ;
In every language learn his word,

And let his name be sung.
2 His mercy reigns through every land ;

Proclaim his grace abroad;





For ever firm his truth shall stand ;

Praise ye the faithful God. 77.

S. M.

The watchful Serdant.
1 YE servants of the Lord,

Each in his office wait';
With joy obey his heavenly word,

And watch before his gate.
2 Let all your lamps be bright,

And trim the golden flame ;
Gird up your loins, as in his sight,
For holy is his name.

C. M.

The Good Seed.
1 ALMIGHTY God, thy word is cast

Like seed into the ground;
Now let the dew of heaven descend,

And righteous fruits abound.
2 Let not the foe of Christ and man

This holy seed remove ;
But give it root in every heart,

To bring forth fruits of love. 79. 7 & 6s. M. (Peculiar.) Rippon's Coll.

The Soul aspiring to Heaven.
1 RISE, my soul, and stretch thy wings,

Thy better portion trace ;
Rise from transitory things

Towards heaven, thy native place.
Sun, and moon, and stars decay;
Time shall soon this earth remove;
Rise, my soul, and haste away

To seals prepared above.

2 Rivers to the ocean run,

Nor stay in all their course ;
Fire, ascending, seeks the sun ;

Both speed them to their source.
So a soul that 's born of God
Pants to view his glorious face;
Upward tends to his abode,

To rest in his embrace. 80.

C. M.

MONTGOMERY. After Divine Service. 1 AGAIN our ears have heard the voice

At which the dead shall live ;
O, may the sound our hearts rejoice,

And strength immortal give !
2 And have we heard the word with joy ?

And have we felt its power ?
To keep it be our blest employ,

Till life's extremest hour. 81.

C. M.

1 ETERNAL Father, God of love,

To thee our hearts we raise ;
Thy all-sustaining power we prove,

And gladly sing thy praise.
2 Thine, wholly thine, 0, let us be ;

Our sacrifice receive ;
Made, and preserved, and saved by thee,

To thee ourselves we give. 82. 8 & 7s. M.

Closing Hymn. 1 ISRAEL'S Shepherd, guide me, feed me,

Through my pilgrimage below,
And beside the waters lead me,
Where thy flock rejoicing go.

2 Lord, thy guardian presence ever,

Meekly kneeling, I implore ;
I have found thee, and would never,

Never wander from thee more.
L. M.

HEBER. Close of Service. 1 LORD, now we part in thy blest name,

In which we here together came;
Grant us our few remaining days

To work thy will and spread thy praise. 2 Teach us in life and death to bless

The Lord, our strength and righteousness;
And grant us all to meet above ;

Then shall we better sing thy love.
C. M.

A blessed Gospel.
1 BLEST are the souls that hear and know

The gospel's joyful sound ;
Peace shall attend the paths they go,

And light their steps surround.
2 Their joy shall bear their spirits up,

Through their Redeemer's name;
His righteousness exalts their hope,

Nor dares the world condemn.
3 The Lord, our glory and defence,

Strength and salvation gives :
Christian, thy King for ever reigns,

Thy God for ever lives. 85.


Filial Confidence.
1 BLEST Shepherd, I am thine ;

Still keep me in thy fear ;
Now fill my heart with grace divine ;

Bring thy salvation near.



2 Among thy little flock

I need the Shepherd's care ;
Pour waters from the smitten Rock,

And pastures green prepare. 86.

C. M.

Praise for Christ.
I NOW the full glories of the Lamb

A dorn the heavenly plains ;
Bright seraphs chant Immanuel's name,

And try their choicest strains.
2 O, may I bear some humble part

In that immortal song ;
Wonder and joy shall tune my heart,
And love command my tongue.

C. M. Campbell's Coll.

Watch and Pray..
I THE Saviour bids us watch and pray,

For soon the hour will come
That calls us from the earth away,

To our eternal home.
2 0, Saviour, we would watch and pray,

And hear thy sacred voice,
And walk, as thou hast marked the way,

To heaven's eternal joys.
7. M.

Parting of Christians.
1 FOR a season called to part,

Let us now ourselves commend
To the gracious eye and heart

Of our ever-present Friend.
2 Father, hear our humble prayer :

Tender Shepherd of thy sheep,
Let thy mercy and thy care

All our souls in safety keep.
