Rivers of life divine I see,

And trees of Paradise !
6 I see a world of spirits bright,

Who taste the pleasures there!
They all are robed in spotless white,

And conquering palms they bear. 7 O what are all my sufferings here,

If, LORD, thou count me meet, With that enraptur'd host t'appear,

And worship at thy feet!
8 Give joy or grief, give ease or pain,

Take life or friends away ;
But let me find them all again

In that eternal day.

Hymn 33. 8's.
TOSANNA to Jesus on high !

Another has enter'd his rest; Another has 'scaped to the sky,

And lodg'd in Emmanuel's breast. 2 The soul of our sister is gone

To brighten the triumph above; Exalted to Jesus's throne,

And clasp'd in the arms of his love. 3 What fulness of rapture is there!

While Jesus his glory displays; And purples the heavenly air,

And scatters the odours of grace !

4 He looks--and his servants in light

The blessings ineffable meet : He smiles and they faint at his sight,

And fall overwhelmed at his feet. 5 How happy the angels that fall

Transported at Jesus's name !
The saints whom he soonest shall call,

To share in the feast of the Lamb ! 6 No longer imprison'd in clay,

Who next from his dungeon shall fly? Who first shall be summon'd away

My merciful LORD—Is it I?. 7 O JESUS ! if this be thy will,

That suddenly I should depart,
Thy counsel of mercy reveal,

And whisper the call in my heart. 8 O give me a signal to know

If soon thou wouldst have me remove, And leave the dull body below,

And fly to the regions above.

Hymn 34. S. M.

ND must this body die,
A This well-wrought frame decay,
And must these active limbs of mine

Lie mouldering in the clay?
2 Corruption, earth and worms,

Shall but refine this flesh,
