-3 Eternal life thy words impart,
On these my fainting spirit lives ; o Here sweeter comforts cheer my heart,
Than all the round of nature gives.
4 Let earth's alluring joys combine ; e While thou art near, in vain they call: o One smile, one blissful smile of thine,
My dearest Lord, outweighs them all. -5 Thy Name, my inmost pow'rs adore; o Thou art my life, my joy, my care ; d Depart from thee ;-tis death-'tis more !
'Tis endless ruin-deep despair ! e 6 Low at thy feet my soul would lie ;
Here safety dwells, and peace divine ; -Still let me live beneath thine eye, o For life, eternal life is thine.
HYMN 83. L. M. Leeds. [*]
Temptation : or, Safety in the Storm. di THE billows swell, the winds are high,
1 Clouds overcast my wintry sky; Out of the depths to thee I cail, e My fears are great, my strength is small. 20 Lord, the pilot's part perform ;. And guide and guard me through the storm!
Defend me from each threat’ning ill, : ' d Control the waves-say, “Peace-be still !” -3 Amidst the roaring of the sea, My soul still hangs her hopes on thee; Thy constant love, thy faithful care,
Is all that saves me from despair.
Attend the followers of the Lamb
And leave it to return no more.
My Saviour through the floods I seek; o Let neither winds, nor stormy rain,
Force back my shatter'd bark again. CowPER. HYMN 84. 7. Hotham. [*] Christ, the Refuge from the Storm. Deut. xxxiii, 27. 1 TESUS, lover of my soul,
Let me to thy bosom fly, While the billows near me roll, While the tempest still is nigh! Hide me, O my Saviour hide, Till the storm of life is past, Safe into the haven guide ; O receive my soul at last! 2 Other refuge have I none; Hangs my helpless soul on thee ; Leave, ah ! leave me not alone Still support and comfort me. All my trust on thee is stay'd, All my help from thee I bring; Cover my defenceless head, With the shadow of thy wing. 3 Thou, O Christ, art all I want; More than all in thee I find; Raise the fallen, cheer the faint, Heal the sick, and lead the blind. Just and holy is thy name, I am all unrighteousness; Vile and full of sin I am, Thou art full of truth and grace. CowPER. · HYMN 85. H. M. Allerton. [*]
Jesus, the Pilot. Luke viii, 22. 1 TESUS, at thy command,
u I launch into the deep;
Where sin lulls all asleep:
2 Thou art my Pilot wise ;
While I have such a Lord !
3 Though rocks and quicksands deep,
Yet thou wilt safely keep,
And guide me with thine eye :
4 By faith I see the land,
And fly to Jesus' breast.
Where winds and waves distress no more ! e 5 Whene'er becalm'd I lie,
And storms and winds subside ;
And keep me near thy side :
Than tempests bursting o'er my head. 0 6 Come, hearinly Wind, and blow
A prosperous gale of grace,
To heav'n, my destin'd place :

He lives my Jesus, still the same : e O the sweet joy this sentence gives, o " I know that my Redeemer lives!" MEDLEY.

Life and Strength in Christ." 1 CON of God, thy blessing grant,
w Still supply my every want;
Wither without thee, and die ;
4 All my hopes on thee depend ; -Love me, save me to the end !
Give me the continuing grace, o Take the everlasting praise. MADAN'S COL. HYMN 88. L. M. Castle Street. [*]
II My praise shall climb to his abode ; d Thee, SAVIOUR, by that name I call,
The great Supreme, the mighty God. 2 Without beginning, or decline,
Object of faith, and not of sense ; g Eternal ages saw Him shine He shines eternal ages hence.
e 3 As much when in the manger laid, o Almighty ruler of the sky;
As when the six day's work he made o Fill'd all the morning stars with joy.
4 Of all the crowns Jehovah bears
And owns EMMANOEL for his name. 05 A cheerful confidence I feel,
My well plac'd hopes with joy I see ;
To worship him who died for me. e 6 As man, he pities my complaint ; o His pow'r and truth are all divine ; - He will not fail, he cannot faint, & Salvation's sure, and must be mine. CowPER.

My beauty are, my glorious dress ; o 'Midst flaming worlds, in these array'd,
With joy shall I lift up my head. 6 2 When from the dust of death I rise,
To claim my mansion in the skies ;
For who aught to my charge shall lay?
Thus all the armies bought with blood,
The robe of Christ is ever new. 06 O let the dead now hear thy voice ; o Now bid thy banish'd ones rejoice ; - Their beauty this, their glorious dress, 8“JESUS THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS." WESLEY.
