12 When nature fails, and day and night

Divide Thy works no more,
My ever-grateful heart, O Lord,

Thy mercy shall adore.
13 Through all eternity to Thee

A joyful song I'll raise;
For, O! eternity's too short

To utter all Thy praise.

20.

6 When in the slippery paths of youth

With heedless steps I ran,
Thine arm, unseen, conveyed me safe,

And led me up to man: 7 Through hidden dangers, toils, and deaths,

It gently cleared my way;
And through the pleasing snares of vice,

More to be feared than they.
8 When worn with sickness, oft hast Thou

With health renewed my face;
And, when in sins and sorrows sunk,

Revived my soul with grace.
9 Thy bounteous hand with worldly bliss

Hath made my cup run o'er;
And, in a kind and faithful friend,

Hath doubled all my store.
10 Ten thousand thousand precious gifts

My daily thanks employ;
Nor is the least a cheerful heart,

That tastes these gifts with joy.

Tune-Salisbury, 158. C.M. "O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are His judgments, and his ways past finding out !

1 MOD moves in a mysterious way,

U His wonders to perform;
He plants His footsteps in the sea,

And rides upon the storm.
2 Deep in unfathomable mines

Of never-failing skill,
He treasures up his bright designs

And works His sovereign will.
3 Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take;

The clouds ye so much dread
Are big with mercy, and shall break

In blessings on your head.
4 Judge not the Lord by feeble sense,

But trust Him for his grace;
Behind a frowning providence

He hides a smiling face.

11 Through every period of my life

Thy goodness I'll proclaim;
And after death, in distant worlds,
Resume the glorious theme.

Mainzer's

OUR LORD'S INCARNATION. 5 His purposes will ripen fast,

6 Blind unbelief is sure to err,
Unfolding every hour;

And scan His work in vain;
The bud may have a bitter taste,

God is His own interpreter,
But sweet will be the flower.

And He will make it plain.

21.

HYMNS OF OUR LORD.
OUR LORD'S INCARNATION.

5 Jesus ! name of wondrous love!

Human name of God above !

Pleading only this, we flee,
Tune-Redhead No. 45, 278. 7,7,7,7. Helpless, O our God, to Thee.
Thou shalt call His name JESUS.
1 JESUS! name of wondrous love ! 22. Tune-Bethlehem, 306. 10 line 7s.

J Name all other names above ! Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good-

To the fallen sons of earth,

Peace on earth, and mercy mild,
For the promise that it gave-

God and sinners reconciled !
Jesus shall His people save."

Joyful all ye nations rise,

Join the triumph of the skies;

With the angelic host proclaim
Given to the Holy Child,

First He tasted here below.

Glory to the new-born King.

3 As they offered gifts most rare

At that manger rude and bare; So may we with holy joy,

Veiled in flesh the Godhead see !
Hail the incarnate Deity !
Pleased as Man with man to dwell,
Jesus, our Emmanuel.

Hark! the herald-angels sing,

Glory to the new-born King. 3 Hail, the heaven-born Prince of Peace!

Hail, the Sun of Righteousness !
Light and life to all He brings,
Risen with healing in His wings.
Mild he lays His glory by,
Born that man no more may die,
Born to raise the sons of earth,
Born to give them second birth.

Hark! the herald-angels sing, –
Glory to the new-born King.

All our costliest treasures bring,

Christ! to Thee, our heavenly King. 4 Holy Jesus, every day

Keep us in the narrow way;
And, when earthly things are past,
Bring our ransomed souls at last
Where they need no star to guide,
Where no clouds Thy glory hide.

5 In the heavenly country bright

Need they no created light;
Thou its light, its joy, its crown,
Thou its sun which goes not down:
There for ever may we sing
Alleluias to our King.

23.

Tune-Dix, 286. 6 line 7s. " When they saw the star they rejoiced with exceeding

great joy."
1 AS with gladness men of old

A Did the guiding star behold;
As with joy they hailed its light,
Leading onward, beaming bright, -
So, most gracious Lord, may we
Evermore be led to Thee.
2 As with joyful steps they sped,

To that lowly manger-bed,
There to bend the knee before
Him whom heaven and earth adore;
So may we with willing feet
Ever seek the mercy-seat.

24. Tune-Rosenberg, 381. 11,10,11,10. We have seen His star in the east, and are come to

worship Him." 1 PRIGHTEST and best of the sons of the D morning!

Dawn on our darkness, and lend us thine aid ! Star of the east, the horizon adorning,

Guide where our infant Redeemer is laid !

2 Cold on His cradle the dew-drops are shining,

Low lies His head with the beasts of the stall;

OUR LORD'S DEATH.
Angels adore Him in slumber reclining,

3 Ride on, ride on in inajesty!
Maker, and Monarch, and Saviour of all.

The winged squadrons of the sky

Look down with sad and wondering eyes 3 Say, shall we yield Him, in costly devotion, Odours of Edom, and offerings divine,

To see the approaching sacrifice. Gems of the mountain, and pearls of the ocean, 4 Ride on, ride on in majesty! Myrrh from the forest, and gold from the The last and fiercest strife is nigh : mine?

The Father on His sapphire throne

Awaits His own anointed Son. 4 Vainly we offer each ample oblation, Vainly with gifts would His favour secure :

5 Ride on, ride on in majesty!
Richer by far is the heart's adoration,

In lowly pomp ride on to die :
Dearer to God are the prayers of the poor.

Bow Thy meek head to mortal pain,

Then take, O God, Thy power, and reign. 5 Brightest and best of the sons of the morning !

Dawn on our darkness, and lend us thine aid ! Star of the east, the horizon adorning,

26. Tune-Gethsemane, 287. 6 line 78. Guide where our infant Redeemer is laid !

Remembering mine affliction and my misery, the

wormwood and the gall."

u Ye that feel the tempter's power,

Your Redeemer's conflict see; 25. Tane-Crasselius, 10.

L.M.

Watch with Him one bitter hour :

Turn not from His griefs away: "And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried saying, Hosanna to the Son of David!

Learn of Jesus Christ to pray. II RIDE on, ride on in majesty!

2 Follow to the judgment-hall;
N Hark! all the tribes Hosanna cry;

View the Lord of life arraigned.
O Saviour meek, pursue Thy road,

O the wormwood and the gall !
With palms and scattered garments strewed.

O the pangs His soul sustained ! 2 Ride on, ride on in majesty!

Shun not suffering, shame, or loss : . In lowly pomp ride on to die :

Learn of Him to bear the cross.
O Christ, Thy triumphs now begin,

OUR LORD'S DEATH. Mark that miracle of time

28.

Tune-St. Agnes, 36. L.M. God's own sacrifice complete.

God forbid that I should glory save in the cross of “ It is finished !” hear Him cry :

our Lord Jesus Christ." Learn of Jesus Christ to die.

1 W E sing the praise of Him who died4 Early hasten to the tomb,

W Of Him who died upon the cross; Where they laid His breathless clay;

The sinner's hope let men deride, All is solitude and gloom

For this we count the world but loss. Who hath taken Him away?

2 Inscribed upon the cross we see, Christ is risen; He meets our eyes :

In shining letters, “God is love;" Saviour, teach us so to rise.

He bears our sins upon the tree,

He brings us mercy from above. 27. Tune-Babylon Streams, 3. L.M.

3 The cross ! it takes our guilt away;

It holds the fainting spirit up; What things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ."

It cheers with hope the gloomy day,

And sweetens every bitter cup. 1 W HEN I survey the wondrous cross On which the Prince of Glory died,

4 It makes the coward spirit brave, My richest gain I count but loss,

And nerves the feeble arm for fight; And pour contempt on all my pride.

It takes its terror from the grave,

And gilds the bed of death with light;2 Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast

5 The balm of life, the cure of woe, Save in the cross of Christ my God; All the vain things that charm me most,

The measure and the pledge of love,

The sinner's refuge here below, I sacrifice them to His blood.

The angels' theme in heaven above. 3 See from His head, His hands, His feet, Sorrow and love flow mingling down;

Tune-Stuttgart, 251. 7,6,7,6. Did e'er such love and sorrow meet, Or thorns compose so rich a crown?

Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin

of the world !" 4 Were the whole realm of nature mine,

1 LAMB of God, once wounded, That were an offering far too small;

With grief and pain weighed down, Love so amazing, so divine,

Thy sacred head surrounded Demands my life, my soul, my all.

With thorns, Thine only crown!
