6 A refuge this, when none beside,
Can firm support bestow ;
Shall never overftow.
Shall heav’nly peace distil;
On Zion's sacred bill.
C. M. Holiness.
Of our eternal king !
Tbrice holy! let us sing.
Pay, oh! my soul, to God!
To his sublime abode. | 3 With sacred awe, pronounce his name,
Whom words, nor thoughts, can reach ; A broken heart shall please him more
Than the best forms of speech.
From all pollution free !
And they thy face shall see.
L. M, God of Salvation. KELLY. I SALVATION 19 OF GOD ALONE,
The glorious plan is all his own;
2 SALVATION IS OF GOD ALONE,
'Tis he who breaks the heart of stone, Who makes self-righteous boast to cease, And gives the troubled conscience peace.
3 SALVATION IS OF GOD ALONE,
'Tis he who leads his people on,
4 SALVATION IS OF GOD ALONE,
He sets his people on his throne;
5 SALVATION IS OF GOD ALONE,
This truth let all his people own,
C. M. God is Love. Anon, 1 POR a seraph's tongue, to join
The song of realms above 1
And sing that God is love. 2 There the bright hosts around the throne,
Unceasing rapture prove ;
Re-echo, God is love,
I often from him rove;
Because he still is love.
Tby mercy to improve;
To praise the God of love.
His wonders to perform;
2 Deep in unfathomable mines,
Of never failing skill;
And works his sov’reign will. 3 Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take,
The clouds ye so much dread
In blessings on your head. 4 Judge not the Lord by feeble sense,
But trust him for his grace ; Bebind a frowning providence,
He hides a smiling face.
Unfolding ev'ry hour;
But sweet will be the flower, 6 Blind unbelief is sure to err,
And scan his work is vain; God is his own interpreter,
And he will make it plain.
il's. The Lord will provide. Anon.
THEN wealth hastes away,'like a bird in its flight,
Whose plumage just shines, as it glides out of sight; Whilefaith by afflictions is painfully tried, How cheering the promise, “the Lord will provide."
2 If friends should forsake, when they see me distrest,
His word and his spirit, this lesson suggest,
3 When dread and despondency risejin my mind,
4 While fear hints, there's something he still will deny,
“No good thing,"—is faith's most decisive reply; Whate'er be withholds, is most wisely denied; How full is the promise, “the Lord will provide."
5 With my sorrows and sins to Jesus I fly,
On his promise unchanging, I firmly rely;
