Crops of precious increase yield; Fres For His mercies still endure, 3. f Ever faithful, ever sure.

f Praise Him for our harvest-store ;

Glory let creation sing ;
Glory to the Father, Son,
And blest Spirit, Threein One! Amen.

" Thou hast made winter."

{WINTER.] imf WINTER reigneth o'er the land, 3 Sunny days are past and gone: Freezing with its icy breath ;

So the years go, speeding fast, Dead and bare the tall trees stand; Onward ever, each new one lim All is chill and drear as death.

Swifter speeding than the last. imf Yet it seemeth but a day

4 Þ Life is waning; life is brief ; Since the summer flowers were here, Death, like winter, standeth nigh: Since they stacked the balmy hay, Each one, like the falling leaf, Since they reaped the golden ear. rall Soon shall fade, and fall, and die. 5th and 6th verses. A little faster

511 Lord, Thou hast been our dwelling-place in all generations."
1 m O God, our help in ages past, 4 P A thousand ages in Thy sight
Our hope for years to come,

Are like an evening gone,
Our shelter from the stormy blast, Short as the watch that ends the night
And our eternal home!

Before the rising sun. 2 mg Under the shadow of Thy throne 5 mf Time, like an ever-rolling stream, Thy saints have dwelt secure ;

Bears all its sons away;
Sufficient is Thine arm alone, dim They fly, forgotten, as a dream
And our defence is sure,

p Dies at the opening day. 3 mf Before the hills in order stood, 6 mf Our God, our help in ages past, Or earth received her frame,

Our hope for years to come, s From everlasting Thou art God, cres Be Thou our guard while troublcs last, To endless years the same.

f And our eterna! home! Amen.
