4 Led by the light thy grace imparts,

Ne'er may we bow the knee
To idols, which our wayward hearts

Set up instead of they.
5 So shall thy choicest gifts, O Lord,

Thy faithful people bless;
For them shall earth its stores afford,

And heaven its happiness. 55

And meekly agree to follow the Lamb;
To trace thy example, the world to disdain,
And constantly trample on pleasure and pain.
9 0) what shall we do our Saviour to love!
To make us anew, come, Lord, from above :
The fruit of thy passion, thy holiness give;
Give is the salvation of all that believe.
30 Jesus ! appear; no longer delay,
To sanctify here, and bear us away;
The end of our meeting on earth let us see
Triumphantly sitting in glory with thee.

There they behold thy mercy-seat;
Where'er they seek thee, thou art found,
And every place is hallow'd ground.
2 For thon, within no walls confined,
Dost dwell with those of humble mind;
Such ever bring thee where they come,
And, going, take thee to their home.
3 Great Shepherd of thy chosen few,
Thy former mereies here renew;
Here, to our waiting hearts, proclaim
The sweetness of thy saving name,

At thy feet we humbly bow
0, do not our suit disdain ;
Shall we seek thee, Loril, in vain!
? Lord, on thee our souls depend;
In compassion now descend;
Fill our hearts with thy rich grace,
Tune our lips to sing thy praise.
3 Send some message from thy word,
That may joy and peace afford;
Let thy Spirit now impart
Full salvation to each heart.
4 Comfort those who weep and mourn;
Let the time of joy return;
Those that are cast down lift up;
Make them strong in faith and hope.
5 Grant that all may seek and find
Thee, a gracious God and kind :
Heal the sick, the captive free;
Let us all rejoice in thee.

Give us each day our daily bread,

And all we need provide.

Thy saints adore thy holy Name; Thy creatures bend the obedient knee,

And, humbly, now thy presence claim. 2 Eternal Source of truth and light,

To thee we look, on thee we call; Lord, we are nothing in thy sigbt,

But thou to us art all in all, 3 Still may thy children in thy word

With brighter still and brighter ray, Till thou shalt bless our longing eyes With beams of everlasting day..

BE
EFORE thy mercy-seat, O Lord,

Behold, thy servants stand,
To ask the knowledge of thy word,

Dwell richly in each heart;

We never may depart.

8 Lord, from thy word remove the seal,

Unfold its hidden store;
And as we hear, 0 may we feel

Its value more and more.
4 Help us to see the Saviour's love

Beaming from every page;
And let the thoughts of joys above

Our inmost souls engage.
5 Thus while thy word our footsteps guides,
Shall we be truly blest;
And safe arrive where love provides

An everlasting rest.

Confession, prayer, and praise. LORnd' when the tem poruke

ORD! when we bend before thy throne, , O may we feel the sins we own,

And hate what we deplore.
2 Our contrite spirits pitying see;

True penitence impart:
And let a healing ray from thee

Beam peace into each heart.
8 When we disclose our wants in prayer,

O let our wills resign;
And not a thought our bosom share,

Which is not wholly thine. 4 And when with heart and voice we strive

Our grateful hymns to raise, Let love divine within us live,

And fill our souls with praise.
5 Then, on thy glories while we dwell,

Thy mercies we'll review;
With love divine, transported, tell

Thou, God, art' Father tool

L. M. True worship everythere accepted. ()

THOU, to whom, in ancient time,

The psalmist's sacred harp was strung, Whom kings adored in song sublime,

And prophets praised with glowing tongue :2 Not now on Zion's height alone

The favour'd worshipper may dwell, Nor where, at sultry noon, thy Son

Sat weary by the patriarch's well, 3 From every place below the skies,

The gratetul song, the fervent prayer, 1 The incense of the heart, may rise

To heaven, and find acceptance there. 4 O thou, to whom, in ancient time,

The holy prophet's harp was strung;
To thee, at last, in every clime,
Shall temples rise, and praise be sung.
