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;
And fly to Jesús breast.
5 Whene'er becalm'd I lie,
And keep me near thy side :
Than tempests bursting o'er my head. o 6 Come, heavenly Wind, and blow
A prosperous gale of grace,
To heaven, my destin'd place:

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 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.

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. [*]
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,
And owns EMMANUEL for his name.
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.

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;

For who aught to my charge shall lay?
Thus all the armies bought with blood,
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, g‘Jesus, 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.

Whence the healing waters flow;

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,
Amid the verdant landscapes flow.
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,
Thy friendly crook shall give me aid,
