HYMN 327. S. M.

Lisbon. [*]

Exhortation against Sectarian Spirit.
1LET party names no more

The Christian world o'erspread:
Gentile and Jew, and bond and free,
Are one in Christ their Head.
2 Among the saints on earth
Let mutual love be found;
Heirs of the same inheritance,

With mutual blessings crowned.
3 Let envy and ill will

Be banished far away;
And all in Christian bonds unite,
Who the same Lord obey.

4 Thus will the church below

Resemble that above;

Where no discordant sounds are heard,
But all is peace and love.

BEDDOME.

HYMN 328. C. M.

Archdale. [*]

The Unity of the Spirit in the Bond of Peace.

g1 T To form one world agree;
HE earth, the ocean, and the sky,

Where all that walk, or swim, or fly,
Compose one family.

-2 God in creation thus displays
His wisdom and his might,
While all his works with all his ways
Harmoniously unite.

p 3 In one fraternal bond of love,
One fellowship of mind,

o The saints below and saints above, Their bliss and glory find.

4 Here, in their house of pilgrimage,
Thy statutes are their song;

There, through one bright eternal age,
Thy praises they prolong.

Song.

The Church Militant learning the Church Triumphant's

0 1

SING

ING we the song of those who stand
Around th' eternal throne,

[ocr errors]

Of every kindred, clime, and land,

A multitude unknown.

2 Life's poor distinctions vanish here;
To-day, the young, the old,
Our Saviour and his flock appear
One Shepherd and one fold.

p 3 Toil, trial, suff'ring, still await
On earth the pilgrim's throng;
Yet learn we, in our low estate,
The church triumphant's song.
s 4 Worthy the Lamb for sinners slain,
Cry the redeemed above,
Blessing and honour to obtain,
And everlasting love.

[merged small][ocr errors]

5 Worthy the Lamb, on earth we sing,
Who died our souls to save:

Henceforth, O Death! where is thy sting?
Thy victory, O Grave?

6 Then, hallelujah! power and praise
To God in Christ be given;

May all who now this anthem raise,
Renew the strain in heaven.

MONTGOMERY.

HYMN 330. S. M. Shirland. [*]

Vital Union to Christ in Regeneration.

1 D

EAR Saviour, we are thine

By everlasting bonds;

Our names, our hearts, we would resign;

Our souls are in thy hands.

2 To thee we still would cleave,
With ever-growing zeal;

If millions tempt us Christ to leave,
Oh, let them ne'er prevail.

3 Thy Spirit shall unite

Our souls to thee, our Head;
Shall form us to thy image bright,
That we thy paths may tread.
4 Death may our souls divide
From these abodes of clay;
But love shall keep us near thy side
Through all the gloomy way.
5 Since Christ and we are one,
Why should we doubt and fear?

If he in heaven hath fixed his throne,
He'll fix his members there.

DODDRIDGE.

HYMN 331. L. M. Atlantic. [*]

Rising to God.

• 1 NOW let our souls, on wings sublime,

Rise from the vanities of time;

Draw back the parting veil, and see
The glories of eternity.

2 Born by a new, celestial birth,
Why should we grovel here on earth?
Why grasp at transitory toys,
So near to heaven's eternal joys?
3 Shall aught beguile us on the road,
When we are walking back to God?
For strangers into life we come,
And dying is but going home.

s 4 Welcome, sweet hour of full discharge,
That sets our longing souls at large;
Unbinds our chains, breaks up our cell,
And gives us with our God to dwell.
5 To dwell with God, to feel his love,
Is the full heaven enjoyed above;
And the sweet expectation now
Is the young dawn of heaven below.

GIBBONS.

HYMN 332. 7s. Hotham. [b or *]
Forsaking all for Christ.

JESU

ESUS, I my cross have taken,
All to leave, and follow thee;

Naked, poor, despised, forsaken,
Thou, from hence, my all shalt be;
Perish every fond ambition,

All I've sought, or hoped, or known,
Yet how rich is my condition!
God and heaven are still my own.
o 2 Soul, then know thy full salvation,
Rise o'er sin, and fear, and care,
Joy to find in every station
Something still to do or bear;

e Think what spirit dwells within thee;
Think what Father's smiles are thine;
Think that Jesus died to win thee:
Child of heaven, canst thou repine?
3 Haste thee on from grace to glory,
Armed by faith, and winged by prayer;
Heaven's eternal days before thee,
God's own hand shall guide thee there.

Soon shall close thy earthly mission,
Soon shall pass thy pilgrim days;
Hope shall change to glad fruition,
Faith to sight, and prayer to praise.

MONTGOMERY.

HYMN 333. 7s. Pilgrim. [bor *]
Welcoming the Cross.

01 'Not to love without the cross;
IS my happiness below,

e

P

But the Saviour's power to know,
Sanctifying every loss.

2 Trials must and will befall;
But with humble faith to see
Love inscribed upon them all,
This is happiness to me.

3 Trials make the promise sweet,
Trials give new life to prayer;
Trials bring me to his feet,
Lay me low, and keep me there.

COWPER.

HYMN 334. L. M. Brentford. [b]

The Influence of the World deplored.
H! from the world's vile slavery,
Almighty Saviour, set me free;

[ocr errors]

And as my treasure is above,

Be there my thoughts and there my love.
2 But oft, alas! too well I know,

My thoughts, my love, are fixed below;
In every lifeless prayer I find

The heart unmoved, the absent mind.
3 Oh! what that frozen heart can move,
Which melts not at a Saviour's love?
What can that sluggish spirit raise,
Which will not sing the Saviour's praise?
4 Lord, draw my best affections hence,
Above this world of sin and sense;
s Cause them to soar beyond the skies,
And rest not, till to thee they rise.

HYMN 335. C. M. Canterbury. [b]

FAIT

The Power of Faith.

AITH adds new charms to earthly bliss,
And saves us from its snares;

Its aid in every duty brings,

And softens all our cares;

2 Extinguishes the thirst of sin, And lights the sacred fire

Of love to God and heavenly things,

And feeds the pure desire.

3 The wounded conscience knows its power The healing balm to give;

That balm the saddest heart can cheer,

And make the dying live.

s 4 Wide it unveils celestial worlds,
Where deathless pleasures reign;
And bids us seek our portion there,
Nor bids us seek in vain.

TURNER.

HYMN 336. 7s & 6s. Margate. [b or *] Looking forward.

P1 FROM every earthly pleasure,

From every transient joy,

From every mortal treasure,
That soon will fade and die;
No longer these desiring,
Upward our wishes tend,
To nobler bliss aspiring,
And joys that never end.
2 From every piercing sorrow
That heaves our breast to-day,
-Or threatens us to-morrow,

Hope turns our eyes away:

[ocr errors]

s On wings of faith ascending,
We see the land of light,
And feel our sorrows ending
In infinite delight.

p 3 What though we are but strangers
And sojourners below;

And countless snares and dangers
Surround the path we go;

Though painful and distressing,
Yet there's a rest above;
s And onward still we're pressing,
To reach that land of love.

HYMN 337. 7s. German Hymn. [*]
The Pilgrim's Song.

01 CHAL

HILDREN of the heavenly King!
As ye journey, sweetly sing:

Sing your Saviour's worthy praise,

o Glorious in his works and ways!
