S. M.
A house not made with hands, eternal in the

heavens.
TE
If this vile house of clay,

, ,
This tabernacle, sink below,

In ruinous decay-
2 We have a house above,

Not made with mortal hands;
And firm as our Redeemer's love

That heavenly fabric stands.
3 It stands securely high,

Indissolubly sure :
Our glorious mansion in the sky

Shall evermore endure,
4 Full of immortal hope,

We urge the restless strife,
And hasten to be swallow'd up

Of everlasting life.
Lord, let us put on thee

In perfect holiness,
And rise prepared thy face to see,

Thy brighi, unclouded face. 6 Thy grace with glory crown,

Who hast the earnest given; And then triumphantly come down,

And take us up to heaven.

With vigour arise,
And press to our permanent place in the skies.
Of heavenly birth, though wand'ring on earth,

This is not our place,
But strangers and pilgrims ourselves we confonu.

REJOICING AT

[ocr errors]

de trillende med No longing we find for the country behind;

2 At Jesus's call, we gave up our all;

And still we forego,
For Jesus's sake, our enjoyinents below.

But onward we move,
And still we are seeking a country above :-
3 A country of joy without any alloy;

We thither repair;
Our hearts and our treasure already are thero,
We march hand in hand to Immanuel's land;

No matter what cheer
We meet with on carth, for eternity's here!
4 The rougher the way, the shorter our stay;

The tempests that rise
Shall gloriously hurry our souls to the skies :
The fiercer the blast, the sooner 'tis past;

The troubles that come
Shall come to our rescue, and hasten de bome.

S. M.
The joyful meeting.
AVIOUR of sinful men,
Which brings us here to meet again,

And triumph in thy Name :
Thy mighty Name hath been

Our safeguard and our tower,
Hath saved us from the world and sin,

And all the accuser's power,
2 Awhile in flesh disjoin'd,

Our friends that went before
We soon in Paradise shall tind,

And meet to part no more ;
In yon thrire happy sent,

Waiting for us they are ;
And thou shalt there a husband meets

And I a parent there!

S. M. Continued.--God shall wipe away all tears. 0

WHAT a mighty change

Shall Jesus' suff'rers know, While o'er the bappy plains they range,

Incrpalle of wo No ill-requited love

Shull there our spirits wound: No buse ingratitude above

No sin in heaven is found. 2 There all our griefs are spent :

There all our sorrows end : We cannot there the fall lument

Of u departed friend;
A brother and to Goch,

By sin, alus ! undone :
No inther there, in passion loud,

Cries,-0, my son I my son! 3 No slightest touch of pain,

Nor sorrow's least alloy, Can violate our rest, or stain

Our purity of joy:
Is that eternal day

No clouds or tempests rise;
There gushing tears are wiped away

Forever from our eyes. 956

C. M. Communion toilk saints in hearen, That have obtain'd the prize;

To joys celestial rise.

With those to glory gone
For all the servants of our King,

In earth and heaven, Are one.

3 One family we sell in Him,

One church above, beneath,
Though now divided by the stream,

The narrow stream, of death.
4 One army of the living God,

To bis command we bow;
Part of his list have cross'i the flood,

And part are crossing now.
6 Ten thousand to their endless homo

This solemn moment fly:
And we are to the margin come,

And we expect to die.
6 His militant embodied host,

With wishful looks we stand,
And long to see that happy coast,

And reach the heavenly land.

Continued.Full felicity.
Orchidscompanions in distress
And eager long for our release,

And full felicity.
2 E'en now, by faith, we join our bands

With those that went before ;
And greet the blood-besprinkled bands

On the eternal shore.
8 Our spirits too shall quickly join,

Like theirs with glory crown'd,
And shout to see our Captain's sign,

To hear his trumpet sounil.
4 Lord Jesne, be our constant guide :

And, whey the word is given,
Bid death's cold flood its waves divide,

And land us safe in heaven.

C. M,
The prospect joyous.
ND let this feeble body fail,
A

And let it faint or die;
My soul sball quit the mournful vale,

And soar to worlds on high :
Shall join the disembodied saints,

And find its long-sought rest,That only bliss for which it pants,

Jo the Redeemer's breast.

2 In hope of that immortal crown

I now the cross sustain,
And gladly wander up and down,

And smile at toil and pain :
I suffer on my threescore years,

Till my Deliv'rer come,
And wipe away his servant's tears,

And take his exile home.

3 O what hath Jesus bought for me!

Before my ravish'd eyes
Rivers of life divine I see,

And trees of Paradise :
I see a world of spirits bright,

Who taste the pleasures there;.
They all are robed in spotless white,

And conqu’ring palms they bear,

[ocr errors][ocr errors]

4 O what are all my suff'ringg here,

II, Lord, thou count ine meet
With that enraptured bost to appear,

And worship at thy feet!
Give joy or grief, give ease or pain,

Take life or friends away,
But let me find them all again

In that eternal day.
