And high the storms of trouble rise,
And half-o'erwhelm my sinking soul ;
And hear a whisper, “ Peace; be still !" 7 Though in affliction's furnace try'd,
Unhurt, on snares and death ř'll tread; Though sin assail, and hell thrown wide,
Pour all its flames upon my head ; Like Moses' bush l’ll mount the higher, And flourish, unconsum’d, in fire.

My all of happiness below, Grant my importunate request,
To me, to me thy goodness show; Thy beatific face display,
The brightness of eternal day. 2 Before my faith's enlighten'd eyes,
Make all thy gracious goodness pass;
O might I see thy smiling face !
Reveal thy love, thy glorious name! 3 There, in the place beside thy throne,
Where all that find acceptance stand, Receive me up into thy Son;
Cover me with thy mighty hand : Set me upon the Rock, and hide
My soul in Jesu's wounded side. 4 O put me in the cleft; empow'r
My soul the glorious sight to bear!
Pass by me, and thy name declare;
Eutaw.] HYMN 408. 6 lines 8's. 1 TO thee, great God of love, I bow !
By faith I see thee passing now;
I have, but still I ask for more;
Then let me see thy face and die !
Give me on eagles' wings to fly; With eagles' eyes on thee to gaze,
And plunge into the glorious blaze. 3 The fulness of my vast reward,
A blest eternity shall be :-
Some better thing than this for me?
I want a sun, a sea of light. 4 Moses thy backward parts might view,
But not a perfect sight obtain:
To us, by the commandment slain :
The pure in heart shall see thy face. 5 More favour'd than the saints of old,
Who now by faith approach to thee, Shall all with open face behold
In Christ the glorious Deity; Shall see and put salvation on,
The nature of thy sinless Son. 6 This, this is our high-calling's prize!
Thine image in thy Son I claim : And still to higher glories rise,
Till all transform'd I know thy name:
And glide to all my heaven above,
Rochdale.] HYMN 409. 48's & 2 6's. 1 GOD, thy faithfulness I plead;
My great Deliverer thou !
I claim the promise now! 2 Where is the way? Ah, show me where, That I thy mercy may declare,
The pow'r that sets me free :
Answer, O Lord, for me!
From inbred sin to fly :
Which love cannot untie.
To foolish man unknown;
Upon thy love alone.
And make an open way:
To everlasting day.

TONDLY my foolish heart essays
With drops of creature-happiness. 2 O Love, thy sovereign aid impart;
And guard the gift thyself hast given:
My life, and happiness, and heaven.
Though dear as life the idol be,
Resolv'd to seek my all in thee. ya 4 Whate'er I fondly counted mine,
To thee, my Lord, I here restore;
Give me thyself, I ask no more.

ND are we get alive,
For his redeeming grace!
To full salvation here,
Fightings without, and fears within,
Since we assembled last;
Hath brought us by his love ;
And hides our life above. 3 Then let us make our boast
Of his redeeming pow'r,
Till we can sin no more:
Till we the crown obtain ;
So we may Jesus gain.

YOME away to the skies, My beloved arise, On this festival day, Come exulting away,
And with singing to Sion return. 2 We have laid up our love, And our treasure
above, Though our bodies continue below: The redeem'd of our Lord, We remember his
word, And with singing to Paradise go. 3 With singing we praise, The original grace,
By our heavenly Father bestow'd;
To the honour and glory of God.
Both the nature and kingdom divine: Created again, That our souls may remain
In time and eternity thine. 5 With thanks we approve The design of thy love
Which hath join'd us in Jesus's name;
