Tunbridge.] HYMN 2. C. M.

T

[Cowper.

HERE is a fountain fill'd with blood,
Drawn from Emmanuel's veins ;

And sinners, plung'd beneath that flood,
Lose all their guilty stains.

2. The dying thief rejoic'd to see
That fountain in his day;
And there may I, as vile as he,
Wash all my sins away.

3. Dear dying Lamb, thy precious blood
Shall never lose its power,

Till all the ransom'd church of God
Be sav'd, to sin no more.

4. E'er since, by faith, I saw the stream,
Thy flowing wounds supply,
Redeeming love has been my theme,
And shall be-till I die.

5. Then in a nobler, sweeter song,
I'll sing thy pow'r to save,

When this poor, lisping, stamm'ring tongue, Lies silent in the grave.

Retirement.] HYMN 3. C. M. [Miss Williams

W

WHILE thee I seek, protecting Power!
Be my vain wishes still'd;

And may this consecrated hour

With better hopes be fill'd.

2. Thy love the power of thought bestow'd, To thee my thoughts would soar:

Thy mercy

o'er my life has flow'd;

That mercy I adore.

3. In each event of life, how clear
Thy ruling hand I see!

Each blessing to my soul most dear,
Because conferr❜d by thee.

4. In ev'ry joy that crowns my days,
In ev'ry pain I bear,

My heart shall find delight in praise,
Or seek relief in pray'r.

5. When gladness wings my favor'd hour,
Thy love my thoughts shall fill:
Resign'd, when storms of sorrow low'r,
My soul shall meet thy will.

6. My lifted eye, without a tear,
The gathering storm shall see;

My steadfast heart shall know no fear:
That heart will rest on thee.

HYMN 4. L. M. [Kenn.

LORY to thee, my God, this night,
For all the blessings of the light;
Keep me, O keep me, King of Kings,
Under the shadow of thy wings.

2. Forgive me, Lord, for thy dear Son,
The ills that I this day have done,
That with the world, myself and thee,
I, ere I sleep, at peace may be.

3. Let my blest Guardian, while I sleep, His watchful station near me keep; My heart with love celestial fill,

And guard me from th' approach of ill.

4. Lord, let my soul for ever share The bliss of thy paternal care; 'Tis heav'n on earth, 'tis heav'n above, To see thy face, to sing thy love.

5. Praise God, from whom all blessings flow, Praise him, all creatures here below,

Praise him above, angelic host,

Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

HYMN 5. L. M.

[Mis. Col.

RM of the Lord, awake, awake!

AR

Put on thy strength, the nations shake! And let the world, adoring, see

Triumphs of mercy wrought by thee.

2. Say to the heathen, from thy throne, "I am Jehovah, God alone!"

Thy voice their idols shall confound,
And cast their altars to the ground.

[3. No more let human blood be spilt-
Vain sacrifice for human guilt!
But to each conscience be apply'd
The blood that flow'd from Jesus' side.]

[4. Arm of the Lord, thy pow'r extend, Let Mahomet's impostures end;

Break superstition's Papal chain,
And the proud scoffer's rage restrain.]
5. Let Zion's time of favor come;
O bring the tribes of Israel home :
And let our wond'ring eyes behold,
Gentiles and Jews in Christ's one fold.

6. Almighty God, thy grace proclaim
In every land of every name;
Let adverse pow'rs before thee fall,
And crown the Saviour-Lord of all.

Northampton.] HYMN 6. S. M. [Doddridge.

GR

RACE! 'tis a charming sound;
Harmonious to the ear!

Heav'n with the echo shall resound,
And all the earth shall hear.

2. Grace first contriv'd the way.
To save rebellious man ;
And all the steps that grace display,
Which drew the wondrous plan.
3. Grace led my roving feet
To tread the heav'nly road;
And new supplies each hour I meet,
While pressing on to God.

4. Grace all the work shall crown,
Through everlasting days;

It lays in heav'n the topmost stone,
And well deserves the praise.

Shirland.] HYMN 7. S. M.
BLEST be the tie that binds

Our hearts in Christian love;

The fellowship of kindred minds
Is like to that above.

2. Before our Father's throne

[Fawcett.

We pour our ardent prayers;
Our fears, our hopes, our aims are one,
Our comforts and our cares.
3. We share our mutual woes,
Our mutual burdens bear;
And often for each other flows
The sympathizing tear.

4. When we asunder part,
It gives us inward pain;
But we shall still be join'd in heart,
And hope to meet again.
5. This glorious hope revives
Our courage by the way;
While each in expectation lives,
And longs to see the day.

6. From sorrow, toil, and pain,
And sin, we shall be free;

And perfect love and friendship reign,
Through all eternity.

Weymouth.] HYMN 8. H. M.
ELCOME, delightful morn,
Thou day of sacred rest;

W

[Hayward.
