2 Rebel, ye waves, and o’er the land

With threat'ning aspect roar;
The Lord uplifts his awful hand,

And chains you to the shore. 3 Howl, winds of night, your force combine,

Without his high behest,
Ye shall not in the mountain pine

Disturb the sparrow's nest.
4 Ye nations bend, in rev'rence bend,

Ye monarchs wait his nod,
And bid the choral song ascend,

To celebrate your God.

PART II.
1 THE Lord our God is Lord of all,

His station who can find ?
I hear him in the waterfall !

I hear him in the wind !
2 If in the gloom of night I shroud,

His face I cannot fly;
I see him in the evening cloud,

And in the morning sky.
3 He bids his blasts the fields deform,

Then, when his thunders cease, Sits as the ruler of the storm,

And smiles the winds to peace!

Psalm xxxiv, 1-4. (P. m.) 1 FAITHLESS to my Saviour? never,

Never more I'll be;
He has loved, and loves me ever;

He has died for me!
2 Often from the fold I wander'd;

Griev'd his holy will;
Oft the choicest gifts I squander'd,

But he lov'd me still!
3 How the kindest calls I've slighted,

When his Spirit strove!
Hours neglected ! mercies blighted!

Still I had his love!
4 Lord, I turn to thee, and never,

Never more I'll roam;
Serve thee, soul and spirit, ever,

Till thou bring'st me home.

Colossians iïi, 16. (c. M.)
1 COME, blessed Spirit, fill my soul

With my Redeemer's praise ;
To thee, my God, my Friend, my all,

My cheerful voice I'll raise.
2 My heart would joy in thee, my Lord;

My tongue thy grace declare ; And psalms and hymns, and sacred songs, My day and night should share.

3 Accept then, Lord, my weak desires

To bless and praise thy name; And may my life, in stronger words,

Set forth my ardent aim.
4 To thee I look, to thee I cry;

Oh hear my suppliant voice!
Fill me with love, with patience, hope,

And humbly I'll rejoice.

Revelation xv, 3. (s. M.)

1 AWAKE, and sing the song

Of Moses and the Lamb:
Wake ev'ry heart and ev'ry tongue,

To praise the Saviour's name. 2 Sing of his dying love,

Sing of his rising pow'r,
Sing how he intercedes above,

For those whose sins he bore! 3 Sing on your heav'nly way,

Ye ransom'd sinners, sing :
Sing on, rejoicing ev'ry day,

In Christ th' eternal King ! 4 Soon shall we hear him say,

“Ye blessed children, come ;" Soon will he call us hence away,

And take his wand'rers home.

116. Psalm li, 12. (7’s.)
1 GRACIOUS Spirit, love divine,

Let thy light within me shine :
All my guilty fears remove,

Fill me full of heav'n and love.
2 Speak thy pard’ning grace to me,

Set the burden'd sinner free:
Lead me to the Lamb of God,
Wash me in his precious blood.
3 Life and peace to me impart,

Seal salvation on my heart,
Breathe thyself into my breast,

Earnest of eternal rest.
4 Let me never from thee stray,

Keep me in the narrow way;
Fill my soul with joy divine,
Keep me, Lord, for ever thine.

Hosea iii, 5. (L. m.). 1 GREAT God of Abra'am, hear our pray’r,

Let Abra'am's seed thy mercy share :
Oh! may they now at length return,

And look on him they pierc'd, and mourn. 2 Remember Jacob's flock of old,

Bring home the wand'rers to thy fold ;
Remember too thy promis'd word,
“Israel at last shall seek the Lord.”

3 Lord, put thy law within their hearts,

And write it in their inward parts;
The veil of darkness rend in two,

Which hides Messiah from their view. 4 Oh! haste the day, foretold so long,

When Jew and Greek, (a glorious throng,) One house shall seek, one pray'r shall pour, And one Redeemer shall adore.

118 1 Corinthians vii, 35. (L. M. G's.)
1 THY presence, gracious Lord, afford,

Prepare us to receive thy word :
Now let thy voice engage our ear,
And faith be mix'd with what we hear;
Thus, Lord, thy waiting servants bless,

And crown thy gospel with success.
2 Distracting thoughts and cares remove,

And fix our hearts and hopes above;
With food divine, may we be fed,
And satisfied with living bread :
Thus, Lord, thy waiting servants bless,

And crown thy gospel with success. 3 To us thy sacred word apply,

With sov’reign pow'r and energy ;
And may we, in thy faith and fear,
Reduce to practice what we hear :
Thus, Lord, thy waiting servants bless,
And crown thy gospel with success.
