In vain our liberty!
What would it profit to maintain
A name for life, should we remain

Formal and dead to thee?

HYMN XCVI.—Deut. xxxiii. 26—29.

1 With Israel's God who can compare?
Or who like Israel happy are?O people saved by the Lord, He is thy shield and great reward!

2 Upheld by everlasting arms,

Thou art secur'd from foes and harms;
In vain their plots, and false their boasts,
Our refuge is the Lord of hosts.

HYMN XCVII—Hubakkuk iii. 17, 18.

Jesus is mine! I'm now prepar'd To meet with what I thought most hard;Yes, let the winds of trouble blow, And comforts melt away like snow:No blasted trees, or failing crops, Can hinder my eternal hopes;

Tho' creatures change, the Lord's the same;Then let me triumph in his name.


We seek a rest beyond the skies, In everlasting day;
Through floods and flames the passage lies, But Jesus guards the way:

The swelling flood, and raging flame,

Hear and obey his word; Then let us triumph in his name,

Our Saviour is the Lord.

HYMN XCIX.—Deut. xxxfi. 9, 10.

1 The saints Immanuel's portion are, Redeem'd by price, reclaim'd by pow'r; His special choice, and tender care, Owns them and guards them ev'ry hour.

2 He finds them in a barren land, Beset with sins, and fears, and foes; He leads and guides them by his hand, And bears them safe from all their foes.

HYMN C—Hebrews xiii. 20—22.

1 Now may he who from the dead Brought the Shepherd of the sheep,
Jesus Christ, our King and Head,
All our souls in safety keep!

2 May he teach us to fulfil What is pleasing in his sight;
Perfect us in all his will, And preserve us day and night!


3 To that dear Redeemer's praise, Who the cov'nant seal'd with blood,
Let our hearts and voices raise
Loud thanksgivings to our God.


Vol. III. 4Q

HYMN CI 2 Corinthians, xiii. 14.

May the grace of Christ our Saviour And the Father's boundless love,
With the Holy Spirit's favour, Rest upon us from above!
Thus may we abide in union With each other, and the Lord;
And possess, in sweet communion, Joys which earth cannot afford.


The peace which God alone reveals, And by his word of grace imparts,
Which only the believer feels, Direct and keep, and cheer your hearts*
And may the only Three in One, The Father, Word, and Comforter,
Pour an abundant blessing down On ev'ry soul assembled here!


1 To thee our wants are known,
From thee are all our pow'rs;
Accept what is thine own, And pardon what is ours:
Our praises, Lord, and pray'rs receive,
And to thy word a blessing give.
* Phil. iv. 7.


2 Oh, grant that each of us Now met before thee here, May meet together thus,

When thou and thine appear! And follow thee to heav'n our home: E'en so, Amen, Lord Jesus, come*.


1 The Father we adore,

And everlasting Son, t The Spirit of his love and pow'r, The glorious Three in One.

2 At the creation's birth This song was sung on high, Shall sound, through ev'ry age, on earth. And through eternity.


1 Father of angels and of men, Saviour, who hast us bought,
Spirit, by whom we're born again,
And sanctify'd and taught!

2 Thy glory, holy Three in One, Thy people's song shall be,
Long as the wheels of time shall run,
And to eternity.

* Rev. xxii. 30.


1 Glory to God, the Father's name, To Jesus, who for sinners dy'd;
The Holy Spirit claims the same,
By whom our souls are sanctify'd.

2 Thy praise was sung when time began By angels, through the starry spheres; And shall, as now, be sung by man Through vast eternity's long years.


Ye saints on earth, ascribe, with heav'n's high host, Glory and honour to the One in Three,


As was, and is, and evermore shall be,
