I live by the faith of the Son of God."
Imf MY faith looks up to Thee, 3 ° While life's dark maze I tread,
Thou Lamb of Calvary,

And griefs around me spread,
Saviour Divine :

Be Thou my Guide;
P Now hear me while I pray ; cres Bid darkness turn to day,
Take all my guilt away ;

Wipe sorrow's tears away, cres Oh, let me from this day

dim Nor let me ever stray Be wholly Thine !

p From Thee aside. 2mf May Thy rich grace impart 4 P When ends life's transient dream, Strength to my fainting heart,

When death's cold, sullen stream My zeal inspire ;

Shall o'er me roll, P As Thou hast died for me,

cres Biest Saviour, then, in love, cres Oh, may my love to Thee

Fear and distrust remove ; Pure, warm, and changeless be,

Oh, bear me safe above, f A living fire !

f A ransomed soul | Amen.

281 “Behold what manner of doze the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should imf BEHOLD the amazing gift of love Though what we shall hereafter be The Father hath bestowed

Is hid from mortal eyes.
On us, the sinful sons of men,
To call us sons of God !

4mf Our souls, we know, when He appears,

Shall bear His image bright ; 3p Concealed as yet this honour lies, For all His glory, full disclosed, By this dark world unknown,

Shall open to our sight. O A world that knew not when Hecame,

5 f A hope so great, and so divine, Even God's eternal Son.

May trials well endure, szmf High is the rank we now possess ; And purge the soul from sense and sin, But higher we shall rise ;

As Christ Himself is pure. Amen. BELGRAVE.

282 “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which, according to

, . f BLEST be the everlasting God, 3 mf To an inheritance divine The Father of our Lord !

He taught our hearts to rise ;
Be His abounding mercy praised, 'Tis uncorrupted, undefiled,
His majesty adored !

Unfading, in the skies. mf When from the dead He raised His Son, 4mf Saints by the power of God are kept And called Him to the sky,

Till the salvation come ; tres He gave our souls a lively hope

We walk by faith as strangers here, That they should never die.

f But Christ shall call us home. Amen
