4 Then shall Thy saints exulting sing,
And each glad heart its tribute bring ;
And earth resound with songs of heaven. 54. For Divine Guidance. 8,7,4. GUIDE me, 0 Thou great Jehovah !
Pilgrim through this barren land ;
Bread of heaven,
Feed me now and evermore. 2 Open now the crystal fountain,
Whence the healing streams do flow,
Be Thou still my strength and shield, 3 When I tread the verge of Jordan,
Bid my anxious fears subside;
Songs of praises
I will ever give to Thee. 55. Psalm LV. 6. P.M. O HAD I the wings of a dove,
I'd make my escape and be gone ;
Who encompass yon heavenly throne :
To the place where the weary have rest; I'd haste from contention and broil
To the peaceful abode of the blest.
2 Around that magnificent throne,
Where the Lamb all His glory displays,
His people are singing His praise :
While remembrance enhances their joys;
The retreat that the haven supplies. 56. A Prayer.
Thy sovereign will denies,
Let this petition rise:
“ From every murmur free;
“And make me live to Thee.
“My life and death attend ; “ Thy presence through my journey shine,
“ And crown my journey's end." 57. Power of Prayer. C.M. THERE is an eye that never sleeps
Beneath the wing of night;
When sink the beams of light. 2 There is an arm that never tires,
When human strength gives way;
When earthly loves decay.
3 There is a power which man can wield,
When mortal aid is vain ;
That list'ning ear to gain. 4 That power is pray’r which soars on high,
To God for ever kind,
Upon the prayerful mind.
His wonders to perform ;
And rides upon the storm. 2 Deep in unfathomable mines
Of never-failing skill,
And works His sovereign will.
The clouds ye so much dread,
In blessings on your head.
But trust Him for His grace :
He hides a smiling face.
Unfolding every hour:
But sweet will be the flower. 6 Blind unbelief is sure to err,
And scan His work in vain ;
God is His own interpreter,
And He will make it plain.
59. For Faith in Christ.
Our sin how deep it stains !
Fast in his slavish chains.
Sounds from God's sacred word,
And trust upon the Lord.
Teach me, O Lord, to fly;
From crimes of deepest dye.
On Thy kind arms I fall ;
My Jesus and my all.
60. Missionary Hymn.
6,8. CHRISTIANS! the glorious hope ye
The hope that Jesus brought to light.
Which cheers believers in their race ;
Uncheer'd by grace, thro' heathen gloom,
Which trains the soul for endless day. 3 Christians ! ye prize the Saviour's blood,
In which the soul is cleans'd for God;
That precious blood which cleanseth you. 61. Christ's Second Coming. L.M. THE Lord will come! the earth shall quake,
The mountains to their centre shake ; And withering from the vaults of night,
The stars shall pale their feeble light.
As once in lowly form He came,
The bruis'd, the suffering, and the dead. 3 The Lord will come! a dreadful form,
With wreath of flame, and robe of storm,
Appointed Judge of all mankind ! 4 Can this be He who wont to stray
A pilgrim on the world's highway;
The Nazarene, the crucified ?
