Fain would I sound it out so loud,
That earth and heav'n might hear.
2 Yes: thou art precious to my soul,
My transport and my trust;
Jewels, to thee, are gaudy toys,
And gold is sordid dust.

3 All my capacious pow'rs can wish,
In thee most richly meet;
Nor to my eyes is light so dear,
Nor friendship half so sweet.

4 O may thy grace still cheer my heart,
And shed its fragrance there!
The noblest balm of all its wounds,
The cordial of its care.

5 I'll speak the honours of thy name
With my last lab'ring breath;
When speechless, clasp thee in my arms;
My joy in life and death.


Hymn 59. L. M.

A Prayer.

E with me, Lord, where'er I go;

Teach me what thou would'st have me do;

Suggest whate'er I think or say;

Direct me in the narrow way.

2 Prevent me lest I harbour pride;
Lest I in my own strength confide:
Show me my weakness, let me see
I have my pow'r, my all from thee.

3 Yah te wa ge shats tenh s'ra yen,
Ta gyes tas n'a go no ronh kwe;
Sea ni ten rehs kon ta gwan h es,
Sa te nyen denh ston n'a gwe ri.
4 Ta gye na was ta g'ri hon nyen,
Ne a gon wea na rah kwa ge:
Ske nya gens ne wa gen hi gon,
Ne ok n'a go no ronh kwa ge.
5 Toh sa ak' ni gon ra 'gye rat,
Ne ok ni se sa ni gon ra,
Ji ni ga tyer ha ga da tih,
Te g'ri hoh ser ne sa wea na.

Teyerihwahkwatha 60. S. M.
E kah sea na o gon,
Ne onh wen ja gwe gon ;

2 Enh skat ne K'ris tus neh,

Ne ro di ya ta do genh ti,
Ska ri wat ne gen hak.

3 Toh sa a ye nos ha,

I non te gya te rat;
Yon da da te gwaht nen ne eh,
Eht sa ronk Ro ya ner.

4 O nonh sa do genh ti,

Sha gat ne e ne gen :



3 Enrich me alway with thy love;
My kind protection ever prove;
Thy signet put upon my breast,
And let thy spirit on me rest.
4 Assist and teach me how to pray;
Incline my nature to obey;

What thou abhor'st, that let me flee,
And only love what pleases thee.

50 may I never do

my will,
But thine and only thine fulfil;
Let all my time and all my ways
Be spent and ended in thy praise.



Hymn 60. S. M.

Christian Unity.

party names no more
The Christian world o'erspread:

Gentile and Jew, and bond and free,
Are one in Christ their head.

Among the saints on earth

Let mutual love be found:

Heirs of the same inheritance,

With mutual blessings crown'd.

Let envy and ill will

Be banished far away:

Those should in strictest friendship dwell

Who the same Lord obey.


Thus will the church below

Resemble that above,

Ji tyo yenh tah kon ken ten rat,
gwe ri enh skah ne.


Teyerihwahkwatha 61. C. M.
ENH non tya ga weh tah kon hak,
N'o nen enh si he ye;

2 Ga thon de yo don ha rah kwe,
Yoh te ronhs ne kse neh;

Ji yon da dya da ta as tha,
N'o nen en wa gye na.

3 To kat ne en jon gi ten ron,
En jon g'rih wi yohs ten;
Yah te yot t'ronhk nen gi he ye,
Ji tye ya ta ta ryon.

4 Ke ris tus ro ga rya gon,
Non wa Ni yoh o nenh:
Ne ra o dens hea nyeht she ra,
Eh ji te wa ton renh.

Teyerihwahkwatha 62. L. M.


TE sa shats tenh se ra gwe gon,
O Sa ya ner ne ta gwan he;
Tha weh tah kon shon gwa da tihs,
Ne eh ja ta de riht se ron.

2 En ja tan hak ne sen ten rat,
Rat ha hi ta ka ya ne renh,
Nok to genh ske on weh eht son,
Eh ja ta nonh stat Sa ya ner.

Where streams of pleasure ever flow,
And ev'ry heart is love.

Hymn 61. C. M.
Victory over Death.

FOR an overcoming faith
To cheer my dying hours,

To triumph o'er the monster Death,
And all his frightful pow'rs.
2 Joyful, with all the strength I have
My quiv'ring lips should sing,
"Where is thy boasted vict'ry Grave!
"And where the monster's sting?"

3 If sin be pardon'd I'm secure;
Death has no sting beside;
The law gives sin its damning pow'r ;
But Christ, my ransom, dy'd.

4 Now to the God of victory

Immortal thanks be paid,

Who makes us conquerers while we die,
Through Christ our living head.


Hymn 62. L. M.

For a Minister.

ITH all thy pow'r, O Lord, defend
Him whom we now

to thee commend ;

Our faithful minister secure,
And make him to the end endure.
Gird him with all-sufficient grace;
Give to his footsteps paths of peace;
