And gather from their Father's board, 13 Be wise as serpents, where you go,

The bread that lives beyond the tomb! But harmless as the peaceful dove;. 6 Nor let thy spreading Gospel rest, And let your heaven-taught conduct show Till through the world thy truth has run;

“And ye shall prove my Gospel true, O may that love which spread this board, " By all the works that I have done, Inspire us while we sing :

“And all the wonders ye shall do. 4“ Glory to God in highest strains, S“ Go heal the sick, go raise the dead, " And to the earth be peace;

On a bright cloud to heaven he rode; The theme demands immortal tongues.

In splendid triumph o'er his foes, 4 Yes, LORD, we love and we adore, Scatter'd his gifts on men below, But long to know and love thee more; And wide his royal bounties flow. And, whilst we taste the bread and wine,

The desert features soon were lost i His kingdom spread from shore to skore,

Thy temples there aruse; Till moons shall wax and wane no more.

Our shores, as culture made them far, 2 T) him shall endless prayer be made, Were hallow'd by thy rites, by prayer, And praises throng to crown his head; And blossom'd as the rose. His name like sweet perfume shall rise With every morning sacrifice.

To regions solitary yet s People and realms, of every tongue,

Within our spreading land! Dwell on his love with sweetest song; There, brethren, from our common home And infant voices shall proclaim

Still westward, like our fathers, roami Their early blessings on his name.

Still guided by thy hand.

4 Saviour! we own this debt of love: Till o'er our ransom'd nature O shed thy Spirit from above,

1 DISOWN'D of heaven, by man opprest, Isaiah xxxv. 2

Outcasts from Zion's hallow'd ground, I ON Zion, and on Lebanon,

Wherefore should Israel's sons, once blest, On Carmel's blooming height,

Still roam the scorning world around? On Sharon's fertile plains, once shone

2 LORD! visit thy forsaken race, The glory, pure and bright:

Back to thy fold the wand'rers bring; 2 From thence its mild and cheering ray Teach them to seek thy slighted grace,

Stream'd forth from land to land ; And hail in CHRIST their promised King. And empires now behold its day;

3 The veil of darkness rend in twain And still its beams expand.

Which hides their Shiloh's glorious light; 3 Its brightest splendors, darting west, The severd olive branch, again Our happy shores illume;

Firm to its parent stock unite.
Our farther regions, once unblest, 4 Hail, glorious day, expected long!
Now like a garden bloom :

When Jew and Greek one prayer shal. 4 But ah! our deserts deep and wild

pour, See not this heavenly light;

With eager feet one temple throng; No sacred beams, no radiance mild,

With grateful praise one GoD adore Dispel their dreary night.

HYMN 109. IV. 1. 5 Thou, who didst lighten Zion's hill,

Rev. xv. 3, 4.
On Carmel who didst shine,
Our deserts let thy glory fill,

1 HOW wondrous and great Thy excellence divine!

Thy worns, God of praise

How just, King of saints, 6 Like Lebanon, in tow'ring pride,

And true, are thy ways! May all our forests sroile;

Oh, who shall not fear thee, And may our borders blossom wide,

And honor thy name!
Like Sharon's fruitful soil.

Thou only art holy,
HYMN 107. 11. 6.

Thou only supreme ! 1 FROM Greenland's icy mountains

2 To nations long dark From India's coral strand,

Thy light shall be shown; Where Afric's sunny fountains

Their worship and vows Roll down their golden sand;

Shall come to thy thmone : From many an ancient river,

Thy truth and thy judgments From many a palmy plain,

Shall spread all abroad, They call us to deliver

Till earth's every people Their land from error's chain.

Confess thee their GOD. 2 What though the spicy breezes

FOR SUNDAY AND CHARITY Blow soft o'er Ceylon's Isle;

SCHOOLS.
Though every prospect pleases,
And only man is vile:

HYMN 110. II. 4.
In vain with lavish kindness
The gifts of God are strown;

CHILDREN AND CONGREGATION. The Heathen in his blindness

Children Bows down to wood and stone.

1 COME let our voices join, 3 Shall we, whose sonls are lighted

Ir one glad song of praise; With wisdom from on high;

To God, the God of love, Shall we to men henighted

Our grateful hearts we raise: The lamp of fe deny?

Congregation
Salvation! oh, Salvation !

To God alone your praise belongs;
The joyful soumd proclalm,
Till each remotest nation

His love demands your earliest songs Has learnt Messiah's pame!

Children 4 Waft, waft, ye winds, his story, 2 Now we are taught to read And you, ye waters, roll,

The book of life divine; Till, like a sea of glory,

Where our Redeemer's love, It spreads from pole to pole;

And brightest glories shine:

Congregation.

4 Safe from the world's alluring harms,

Beneath his watchful eye,
To God alone the praise is due,
Who sends his word to us and you

O, thus encircled in his arms,

May we for ever lie!
Children

HYMN 113. LM.
3 Within these hallow'd walls,
Our wand'ring feet are brought;

1 LORD, how delightful 't is to see Where prayer and praise ascend,

A whole assembly worship thee: And heavenly truths are taught :

At once they sing, at once they pray;

They hear of heaven, and learn the way. Congregation

2 I have been there, and still would go, To God alone your off rings bring; 'Tis like a little heaven below; Here in his church his praises sing. Not all that earth and sin can say Children

Shall tempt me to forget this day. 4 For blessings such as these,

3 O write upon my mem'ry, LORD, Our gratitude receive;

The text and doctrine of thy word; LORD, here accept our hearts,

That I may break thy laws no more, "T is all that we can give :

But love thee better than before.

HYMN 114. C. M. Be crown'd with meet success;

1 MERCY, descending from above, May thousands yet unborn,

In softest accents pleads; This institution bless :

O may each tender bosom move, Thus shall the praise resound to thee,

When mercy intercedes! Now, and through all eternity!

2 Children our kind protection claim; HYMN 111. III.1.

And God will well approve,

When infants learn to lisp his name, 1 GLORY to the FATHER give,

And their Creator love. God in whom we move and live; Children's prayers he deigns to hear, 3 Delightful work! young souls to win, Children's songs delight his ear.

And turn the rising race

From the deceitful paths of sin, 2 Glory to the Son we bring,

To seek their Saviour's face.
Christ our Prophet, Priest, and King;
Children, raise your gweelest strain,

4 ALMIGHTY GOD! thine influence shed To the Lamb, for he was slain.

To aid this blest design;

The honor of thy name be spread, 3 Glory to the Holy Ghost,

And all the glory thine.

Children's minds may he inspire,

G CHARITABLE OCCASIONS.
Touch their tongues with holy fire.

HYMN 115. C. M. 4 Glory in the highest be To the blessed TRINITY,

1 BLEST is the man whose soft'ming heart For the Gospel from above,

Feels all another's pain; For the word that “ God is love."

To whom the supplicating eye

Is never raised in vain :
HYMN 112 C. M.

2 Whose breast responds with gen'rous 1 WHEN JESUS left his heavenly throne warmth, He chose an humble birth;

A stranger's wo to feel; Like us unhonor'd and unknown,

Who weeps in pity o'er the wound He came to dwell on earth :

He wants the power to heal. 2 Like him, may we be found below

3 To gentle offices of love In wisdom's paths of peace;

His feet are never slow; Like him, in grace and knowledge grow He views, through mercy's melting eys, As years and strength increase.

A brother in a foe. 3 Sweet were his words and kind his look, 4 To him protection shall be shown; When mothers round him press'd;

And mercy, from above, Their infants in his arms he took,

Descend on those who thus fulfil And on his bosom bless'd:

'The Christian law of love.

HYMN 116. C. M.

2 The smallest fish that swims the seas, I RICH are the joys which cannot die,

Sportful, to thee a tribute pays; With God laid up in store;

And largest monsters of the deep, Treasures beyond the changing sky,

At thy command or rage or sleep. Brighter than golden ore.

3 Thus is thy glorious power adored

Among the watry nations, LORD! 2 The seeds which piety and love

Yet men, who trace the dang’rous waves, Have scatter'd here below, In the fair fertile fields above

Forget the mighty God who saves ! To ample harvests grow.
