Yet thou wilt safely keep,

And guide me with thine eye: My anchor, hope, shall firm abide,

And I each boisterous storm outride. 0 4 By faith I see the land,

"The port of endless rest;
My soul, thy sails expand,

And fly to Jesús breast.
Oh may I reach the heavenly shore,
Where winds and waves distress no more!

5 Whene'er becalm'd I lie,
And storms and winds subside ;
Lord, to my succour fly,

And keep me near thy side :
For more the treach'rous calm I dread,

Than tempests bursting o'er my head. o 6 Come, heavenly Wind, and blow

A prosperous gale of grace,
To waft me from below,

To heaven, my destin'd place:
s Then, in full sail, my port I'll find,
And leave the world, and sin, behind.

· Huntingdon. HYMN 86. L. M. Castle-Street. [*]

My Redeemer liveth. Job xix, 25. 1'T KNOW that my Redeemer lives;'

What comforts this sweet sentence gives! He lives, he lives, who once was dead, He lives, my ever living head! 2 He livese-triumphant from the grave, He lives-eternally to save; He lives-all glorious in the sky, He lives--exalted there on high. 3 He lives—to bless me with his love, He lives—to plead for me above; He lives—my hungry soul to feed, He lives—to help in time of need. 4 He lives—to grant me rich supply, He lives—to guide me with his eye; He lives--to comfort me when faint, He lives—to hear my soul's complaint, 5 He lives-toilence all my fears, He lives—to stoop and wipe my tears;

He lives—to calm my troubled heart,
He lives—all blessings to impart.
6 He lives-my kind, wise, heavenly Friend,
He lives--and loves me to the end;
He lives and while he lives I'll sing,
He lives—my prophet, priest, and king.
7 He lives--and grants me daily breath,
He lives—and I shall conquer death!
He lives—my mansion to prepare,

He lives to bring me safely there. 0 8 He lives-all glory to his name!

He lives-my Jesus, still the same : e Oh the sweet joy this sentence gives, o 'I know that my Redeemer lives! Medley.

HYMN 87. 7s. Fairfax. [*]

Life and Strength in Christ. 1 SON of God, thy blessing grant,

» Still supply my every want; Tree of life, thine influence shed; With thy sap my spirit feed. e 2 Tenderest branch, alas ! I lie

Wither'd, without thee, and die.; Weak as helpless infancy; O confirm my soul in thee! 3 Unsustain'd by thee, I fall; Send the strength for which I call : Weaker than a bruised reed, Help I ev'ry moment need. .4 All my hopes on thee depend; -Love me, save me to the end!

Give me the continuing grace,o Take the everlasting praise. Madan's Col. HYMN 88. L. M. Castle-Street. [*]

Jehovah-Jesus.
IMMY song shall bless the Lord of all;

NI My praise shall climb to his abode, d Thee, SAVIOUR, by that name I call,

The great Supreme, the mighty God. -2 Without beginning, or decline,

Object of faith, and not of sense; g Eternal ages saw Him shine

He shines eternal ages hence.

e 3 As much when in the manger laid,
o Almighty ruler of the sky;
-As when the six days' work he made
o Fill'd all the morning stars with joy.
-4 Of all the crowns Jehovah bears,
Salvation is his dearest claim;
That gracious sound well pleas'd he hears,

And owns EMMANUEL for his name.
0 5 A cheerful confidence I feel,
My well plac'd hopes with joy I see;
My bosom glows with heavenly zeal,

To worship him who dy'd for me. e 6 As man, he pities my complaint ; o His power and truth are all divine; -He will not fail, he cannot faint g Salvation's sure,-and must be mine. Cowper.

HYMN 89. L. M. Leeds. [*] Assurance in Christ, our Righteousness. Is. xiv, 24. Jer. xxiii, 6 1 TESUS, thy blood and righteousness

J My beauty are, my glorious dress; o 'Midst flaming worlds, in these array'd,

With joy shall I lift up my head. e 2 When from the dust of death I rise,

To claim my mansion in the skies;

E'en then shall this be all my plea-
d 'Jesus hath liv'd-and dy'd for me.'
-3 Bold shall I stand in that great day,

For who aught to my charge shall lay?
Fully, through thee, absolv'd I am
From sin's tremendous curse and shame.
4 Thus Abraham, the friend of God,

Thus all the armies bought with blood,
o Saviour of sinners, thee proclaim-
e Sinners, of whom the chief I am.
-5 This spotless robe the same appears,
When ruin'd nature sinks in years;
No age can change its glorious hue;

The robe of Christ is ever new. 0 6 O let the dead now hear thy voice; o Now bid thy banish'd ones rejoice; -Their beauty this, their glorious dress, gJesus, the Lord, our Righteousness. Wesley

HYMN 90. C. M. Arundel. [*]

Holy Fortitude : or, the Christian Soldier. 1 AM I a soldier of the cross?

- A follower of the Lamb ! e And shall I fear to own his cause,

Or blush to speak his name? -2 Must I be carry'd to the skies, : On flowery beds of ease ? e Whilst others fought to win the prize,

And sail'd through bloody seas? --3 Are there no foes for me to face?

Must I not stem the flood ? e Is this vile world a friend to grace,

To help me on to God? 0 4 Sure I must fight, if I would reign; e Increase my courage, Lord; o I'll bear the toil, endure the pain,

Supported by thy word. 5. Thy saints, in all this glorious war,

Shall conquer, though they die; o They view the triumph from afar,

And seize it with their eye. 0 6 When that illustrious day shall rise,

And all thy armies shine, In robes of victory, through the skies-g The glory shall be thine.

Watts.

HYMN 91. 8,7 & 4. Tamworth. [*]

God, the Pilgrim's Guide. Ps. xlviii, 14.
1 CUIDE me, O thou great Jehovah,

UT Pilgrim through this barren land;
I am weak, but thou art mighty;
Hold me with thy powerful hand:

Bread of heaven,
Feed me till I want no more.
2 Open, Lord, the crystal fountain,

Whence the healing waters flow;
Let the fiery, cloudy pillar
Lead me all my journey through:

Strong Deliv'rer!

Be thou still my strength and shield. e 3 When I tread the verge of Jordan,

Bid my anxious fears subside ; ;

e the helse.crysta more.

o Death of death, and hell's destruction,

Land me safe on Canaan's side :

Songs of praises-
I will ever give to thee.

Robinson.
HYMN 92. L. P. M. Devotion. [*]

The Christian's Shepherd. Ps. xxiii. 1 MTHE Lord my pasture shall prepare,

1. And feed me with a shepherd's care; His presence shall my wants supply, And guard me with a watchful eye; My noonday walks he shall attend,

And all my midnight hours defend. e 2 When in the sultry glebe I faint,

Or on the thirsty mountains pant,
To fertile vales and dewy meads,
My weary wandering steps he leads,
Where peaceful rivers, soft and slow,

Amid the verdant landscapes flow.
e 3 Though in a bare and rugged way,

Through devious, lonely wilds I stray; --His bounty shall my pains beguile; o The barren wilderness shall smile, With lively greens and herbage crown'd,

And streams shall murmur all around. 0 4 Though in the paths of death I tread,

With gloomy horrours overspread,

My steadfast heart shall fear no ill,
e For thou, O Lord, art with me still ;

Thy friendly crook shall give me aid,
And guide me through the dismal shade. Addison.

Hark!-a full choir of angels sing

The new-born Saviour, and the King. e 2 Behold these swift-wing'd envoys wait

On Jesus, in his humble state ; . p The desert and the garden prove

Their glowing zeal, their tender love. o 3 They saw the. Conqueror mount on high,
