4 May Jesus, the Sụn of all righteousness,
pour The beams of His mercy on each distant
shore, Till all the world know His rich love and
decreesAs waters e'en cover the depth of the seas ! 5 Till each, and all kingdoms are those of
Sinner, see the Saviour here;
Lo! my servant
Mine elect, Mine only Son,
He to save Thee
Pierced by sin's envenomed dart;
To the Saviour
4 Though thy lamp be " dimly burning,"
Tho' thy gratitude be small,
282. Seaman's Hymn. WHEN through the torn sail the wild
tempest is streaming, When o'er the dark wave the red lightning
is gleaming, Nor hope lends a ray the poor seaman to
cherish, We fly to our Maker-"Help, Lord ! or
we perish!" 2 Oh Jesus! once tossed on the breast of the
billow, Aroused by the shriek of despair from Thy
pillow, Now seated in glory, the mariner cherish, Who cries in his danger—"Help, Lord !
or we perish !" 3 And oh, when the whirlwind of passion
is raging, When hell in our heart his wild warfare
is waging, Arise in Thy strength, Thy redeemed to
cherish, Rebuke the destroyer—"Help, Lord ! or
we perish !"
283. God is Love. COME ye that know and fear the Lord,
And raise your thoughts above; Let every heart and voice accord
To sing that God is love." 2 This precious truth His word declares,
And all His mercies prove; Jesus the Gift of gifts appears
To shew that God is love."
With those who from Him rove ;
To teach them" God is love." 4 The work begun is carried on
By power from heaven above ; And every step from first to last,
Declares that God is love." 5 O may we all, while here below,
This best of blessings prove;
Proclaim that God is love." 284.
The Lord's Day.
First streamed upon the new-born
And fill our souls with LIGHT divine. 2 This day the Saviour left the grave,
And rose, omnipotent to save ;-
3 This day the Holy Spirit came
With fiery tongues of cloven flame;-
With grace to hear, and grace to pray. 4 O day of Light, and LIFE, and GRACE !
From earthly toils sweet resting place!
Give we again to God above ! 285. Missionary Hymn. FAR
o'er earth's remotest regions,
Glorious gospel speed thy way;
By the pow'r Thy gospel wields-
Western lands, where satan reigns ;
Gracious Spirit !
Rise with healing on Thy wings-
286. Worthy the Lamb.
Declare through earth abroad,
Worthy the Lamb!"
Swell the glad theme;
Worthy the Lamb !"
Dwell on His name !
Worthy the Lamb!” 287. The Communion of Saints. THE saints on earth, and those above,
But one communion make;
All of His grace partake.
One church, above, beneath ;
The narrow stream of death.
