Offspring of a Virgin's womb,
Slain and Victor o'er the tomb,
Seated on the Judgment Throne,
Number us among Thine own!

Day by day we magnify Thee,
And would evermore be nigh Thee,
Keep us from the Tempter's snare,
Spare Thy people, Jesu, spare. Amen.

330. 6-5,6-5.

Jesu, high in glory,

Lend a listening ear;
When we bow before Thee

Children's praises hear.

Though Thou art so holy,
Heaven's Almighty King,

Thou will stoop to listen
When Thy praise we sing.

We are little children,
Weak and apt to stray;

Saviour, guide and keep us
In the heavenly way.

Save us, Lord, from sinning,

Watch us day by day;
Help us now to love Thee:

Take our sins away.

Then when Jesus calls us

To our heavenly home, We would gladly answer,

"Saviour! Lord! we come!"

Lobd Jesus, God and Man,
In this our festal day
To Thee for precious gifts of grace
Thy ransomed people pray.

We pray for childlike hearts,
For gentle holy love,
For strength to do Thy will below
As angels do above.

We pray for simple faith,
For hope that never faints,
For true communion evermore
With all Thy blessed saints.

On friends around us here O let Thy blessing fall, We pray for grace to love them well, But Thee beyond them all.

O joy to Uve for Thee! O joy in Thee to die! O very joy of joys to see Thy face eternally!

Lord Jesus, God and Man,
We praise Thee and adore,
Who art with God the Father One,
And Spirit, evermore. Amen.

332. 7'..

God of mercy, throned on high,
Listen from Thy lofty seat;

Hear, O hear, our feeble cry,

Guide, O guide, our wandering feet.

Young and erring travellers, we
All our dangers do not know;

Scarcely fear the stormy sea,
Hardly feel the tempest blow.

Jesu, lover of the young,

Cleanse us with Thy blood divine; Ere the tide of sin grow strong,

Save us, keep us, make us Thine.

Let us ever hear Thy voice,
Ask Thy counsel every day;

Saints and angels will rejoice,
If we walk in wisdom's way.

Saviour, give us faith, and pour
Hope and love on every soul;

Hope, till time shall be no more,

Love, while endless ages roll. Amen.

IIEab Thy children, gentle Jesus!

While we breathe our evening prayer; Save us from all harm and danger,

Take us 'neath Thy sheltering care.

Save us from the wiles of Satan,
'Mid the lone and sleepless night;

Sweetly may bright guardian angels
Keep us neath their watchful sight.

Gentle Jesus! look in pity

From Thy great white throne above, All the night Thy heart is wakeful,

Ever Thou Thine own dost love.

Shades of even fast are falling,

Day is fading into gloom; When the shades of death fall round us,

Lead Thine exiled children home.

Gentle Jesus! hear Thy children

When They sing their hymns to Thee,

Who, with Father and with Spirit,
Art One God eternally. Amen.

334. L. M

O Spibit of the living God!

In all Thy plenitude of grace, Where'er the foot of man hath trod,

Descend on our apostate race.

Give tongues of fire and hearts of love
To preach the reconciling word;

Give power and unction from above
Whene'er the joyful sound is heard.

Be darkness, at Thy coming, light;

Confusion, order in Thy path; Souls without strength inspire with might,

Bid mercy triumph over wrath.

O Spirit of the Lord! prepare

All the round earth her God to meet;

Breathe Thou abroad like morning air,
Till hearts of stone begin to beat.

Baptize the nations far and nigh,
The triumphs of Thy cross record,

The Name of Jesus glorify,

Till every kindred call Him Lord.
