108. Matt. XIII.
The harvest of the Lord !
Wide waves his flamy sword.
The fire of vengeance bound ?
Choked the fair crop around.
God's treasure-house to fill?
Amid surrounding ill.
Thy fiery wrath to flee !
O gather us to Thee. 109. Ebenezer.
8,7. COME, Thou Fount of every blessing,
Tune my heart to sing Thy grace : Streams of mercy, never ceasing,
Call for songs of loudest praise.
Sung by angels' tongues above :
soul with sacred pleasure,
Hither, by Thy help, I'm come:
Safely to arrive at home.
4 Jesus sought me, when a stranger,
Wandering from the fold of God; He, to save my soul from danger,
Interpos’d His precious blood. 5 Oh! to grace how great a debtor
Daily I'm constrained to be! Let that grace, Lord, like a fetter,
Bind my wandering heart to Thee. 6 Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it;
Prone to leave the God I love : Here's my heart, Lord, take and seal it,
Seal it from Thy courts above.
The Name of Jesus.
In a believer's ear!
And drives away his fear.
And calms the troubled breast : 'Tis manna to the hungry soul,
And to the weary rest. 3 Jesus, my Shepherd, Husband, Friend,
My Prophet, Priest, and King,
Accept the praise I bring.
And cold my warmest thought;
I'll praise Thee as I ought.
With every fleeting breath;
And may the music of Thy name
Refresh my soul in death. 111. Confirmation. LOOK down, O Lord, and on our youth
Bestow the gifts of heavenly grace, And let the seed of sacred truth
Find in each heart a fruitful place. 2 The cross that mark'd their infant brow,
May it a faithful emblem prove,
And walk as children of Thy love. 3 Now, in the strength of power divine,
O may they all, with glad accord,
And join themselves to Christ the Lord. 4 Thy sons and daughters, may they be
Confirm'dand strengthen'd by Thy grace; And safe thro' life, preserv'd by Thee,
In heaven behold Thee, face to face.
With angels round the throne ;
But all their joys are one. 2" Worthy the Lamb that died,” they cry,
“ To be exalted thus ;"
“ For He was slain for us.” 3 Jesus is worthy to receive
Honour and power divine ;
And blessings more than we can give,
Be, Lord, for ever Thine.
And air, and earth, and seas,
And speak Thine endless praise. 5 The whole creation join in one,
To bless the sacred name
And to adore the Lamb.
Creation's work complete!
And worshipp'd at His feet.
In perfect order stood;
God saw that all was good.
For sin has ruin'd all ;
A gracious Father's call. 4 Yet, Lord, bring back the reign of peace, ,
Let brighter days begin ;
From folly and from sin.
Though once with vengeance curs'd ; And let a second sabbath shine,
As glorious as the first.
'Tis pleasure to our ears ;
A cordial for our fears.
Be unto the Lamb for ever !
Hallelujah! praise the Lord. 2 Buried in sorrow and in sin,
At hell's dark door we lay,
To Thee the praise belongs,
The spacious earth around;
Glory, dc. 115. The Sabbath.
8,7. WHEN the sabbath bells are pealing
Welcome are their sounds to me; Music on the night air stealing,
Hath not sweeter melody. 2 Cheering then the heart of sadness,
In each tone such sweetness dwells ;
