Belongs to God alone;
He sends his blessings down. 2 Shall I not then engage
My house to serve the Lord,-
And feed upon bis word :
The grace which he supplies, In prayer and praise to offer up
Their daily sacrifice? 4 Let cach his sin eschew,
Through thy restraining grace; Our father Abrah’m's steps pursue,
And walk in all thy ways. 8 Saviour of men, incline
The hearts which thou bast made, Which thou hast bought with blood divano,
To ask thy promised aid. 6 Me and my house receive,
Thy fam'ly to increase;. And let us in thy favour live,
And let us die in peace. 628
Commencing the labours of the day. TORTH in thy name, O Lord, I go,
My daily labours to pursue; Thee, only thee, resolved to know,
In all I think, or speak, or do. 9 Thee will I set at my right hand,
Whose eyes mine ininost substance see; And labour on at thy command,
And offer all my works to thee.
3 Give me to bear thy pasy yoke,
And every moment watch and pray; And still to things eternal look,
And hasten to thy glorious day: 4 For thee delightfully employ
Whate'er thy bounteous grace has given; And run my course with even joy,
And closely walk with thee to heaven.

And fit for thy great service make
These heirs of immortality : And let them in thine image rise, And then transplant

Preserve them for thy glorious cause,
The welcome burden of thy cross;
Our sons henceforth he wholly thine,
And serve and love thee all their days; Infuse the principle divine
In all who here expect thy grace,
In all their Captain's steps to tread;
Thy gospel through the world to spread; Freely as they receive to give, And preach the death by which we livol
In vain shall we desire success;
And keep me safe from sin.
Thy tabernacle spread
And screen my naked bead.
From sin's alluring snare:
And watching unto prayer.
Might from thy ways depart:
By giving thee my heart.
And then from earth release ;
And lay me down in peace.

C. M. Acquiescence in the Divine Will. AUTHOR of good, we rest on thee : Alone our real wants can see,
Thy hand alone supply.
Our cheerful bopes contido ;
Thy love our footsteps guide.
Too oft, with stubborn will, We blindly shun the latent good,
And grasp the specious ill,-
Let mercy still supply:
The ill, though nekd, deny.

GOD, who madest earth and sky,
The darkness and the day, Give ear to this thy family,
And help us when we prays
Around our vessel roar,
To view the rocky shore.
For him we fain would bear; But mortal strength to weakness turns,
And courage to despair.
Our sinking fnith renew
O send thy patience too. 635
