4 Peace, prosperity, and health,
5 Yet, should rising whirlwinds tear
5 We own and bless thy gracious sway
HYMN 85. L. M.
For Public Mercies and Deliverances. 1 SALVATION doth to GOD belong, His power and grace shall be our song; From him alone all mercies flow, His arm alone subdues the foe!
BAPTISM OF INFANTS.
1 SAVIOUR! who thy flock art feeding
While the lambs thy bosom share 2 Now, these little ones receiving,
Fold them in thy gracious arm-
1 THE gentle Saviour calls
2 "Let them approach," he cries,
"Nor scorn their humble claim; "The heirs of heaven are such as these, "For such as these I came."
3 Gladly we bring them, LORD, Devoting them to thee, Imploring, that, as we are thine, Thine may our offspring be.
BAPTISM OF ADULTS.
1 SOLDIERS of CHRIST arise,
Strong in the strength which GOD supplies Through his eternal Son.
2 Then praise this GOD, who bows his ear 2 Strong in the LORD of hosts,
And in his mighty power,
Who in the strength of JESUS trusts,
Propitious to his people's prayer;
3 Stand then in his great might, With all his strength endued, And take to arm you for the fight, The panoply of GOD.
4 That having all things done,
10 HAPPY day, that stays my choice
10, IN the morn of life, when youth With vital ardor glows,
And shines in all the fairest charms
2 Deep in thy soul, before its powers
3 Ere yet the shades of sorrow cloud
4 Ere yet thy heart the woes of age,
5 True wisdom, early sought and gain'd,
HYMN 94. L. M.
1 MY GOD, and is thy table spread? And does thy cup with love o'erflow? Thither be all thy children led,
And let them thy sweet mercies know! 2 Hail, sacred feast, which JESUS makes! Rich banquet of his flesh and blood! Thrice happy he who here partakes
That sacred stream, that heavenly food 8 Why are its hounties all in vain
Before unwilling hearts display'd? Was not for you the victim slain?
Are you forbid the children's bread? 4 0 let thy table honor'd be,
And furnish'd well with joyful guests' And may each soul salvation see, That here its holy pledges tastes!
5 Drawn by thy quick'ning grace, O LORD In countless numbers let them come,
2 But all the notes which mortals know,
4 Yes, LORD, we love and we adore,
5 Let faith our feeble senses aid,
HYMN 97. L. M.
St. Matt. x.
1 GO forth, ye heralds, in my name, Sweetly the gospel trumpet sound; The glorious jubilee proclaim,
Where'er the human race is found. 2 The joyful news to all impart,
And teach them where salvation lies; With care bind up the broken heart, And wipe the tears from weeping eyes.
3 Be wise as serpents, where you go, But harmless as the peaceful dove; And let your heaven-taught conduct show That ye 're commission'd from above. 4 Freely from me ye have received,
Freely, in love, to others give; Thus shall your doctrines be believed, And by your labors, sinners live.
HYMN 98. L. M.
St. Mark xvi. 15, &c. and St. Matt. xxviii. 18, &c. 1 "GO preach my Gospel," saith the LORD,
"Bid the whole earth my grace_receive; "Explain to them my sacred word, "Bid them believe, obey, and live.
2 "I'll make my great commission known. "And ye shall prove my Gospel true, "By all the works that I have done,
"And all the wonders ye shall do. 8"Go heal the sick, go raise the dead, "Go cast out devils in my name; "Nor let my prophets be afraid, "Though Greeks reproach, and Jews blaspheme.
4 "While thus ye follow my commands, "I'm with you till the world shall end "All power is trusted in my hands; "I can destroy, and can defend."
5 He spake, and light shone round his head;
On a bright cloud to heaven he rode; They to the farthest nations spread The grace of their ascended GOD.
4 From CHRIST their varied gifts derive, OF And, fed by him, their graces live;
Whilst guarded by his potent hand,
6 JESUS, our LORD, their hearts shall
The spring whence all these blessings
Pastors and people shout his praise,
HYMN 100, L. M.
1 FATHER of mercies, bow thine ear,
Do thou their anxious souls enlarge;
8 Clothe, then, with energy divine,
6 Let sinners break their massy chains,
CONSECRATION OF A CHURCH. HYMN 101. L. M. 1 AND wilt thou, O Eternal GOD, On earth establish thine abode? Then look propitious from thy throne, And take this temple for thine own. 2 These walls we to thine honor raise, Long may they echo in thy praise; And thou, descending, fill the place With the rich tokens of thy grace. 3 Here may the great Redeemer reign, With all the graces of his train; While power divine his word attends, To conquer foes and cheer his friends. 4 And in the last decisive day, When God the nations shall survey, May it before the world appear, Thousands were born for glory here.
HYMN 102. L. M
1 JESUS shall reign where'er the sun
8 People and realms, of every tongue, Dwell on his love with sweetest song; And infant voices shall proclaim Their early blessings on his name.
14 Blessings abound where'er he reigns;
5 Where he displays his healing power, Death and the curse are known no more: In him the tribes of Adam boast
More blessings than their father lost.
HYMN 108. L. M
1 FROM all that dwell below the skies,
8 Shall we, whose souls are lighted With wisdom from on high; Shall we, to men benighted
The lamp of "fe deny? Salvation! oh, Salvation!
The joyful sound proclaim, Till each remotest nation
Has learnt Messiah's name! 4 Waft, waft, ye winds, his story, And you, ye waters, roll, Till, like a sea of glory,
It spreads from pole to pole;
Till o'er our ransom'd nature
HYMN 108. L. M.
1 DISOWN'D of heaven, by man opprest,
Back to thy fold the wand'rers bring; Teach them to seek thy slighted grace, And hail in CHRIST their promised King. 3 The veil of darkness rend in twain Which hides their Shiloh's glorious light; The sever'd olive branch, again
Firm to its parent stock unite.
4 Hail, glorious day, expected long! When Jew and Greek one prayer shal
With eager feet one temple throng,
1 HOW wondrous and great Thy works, GoD of praise! How just, King of saints,
And true, are thy ways!
Thou only supreme!
Shall come to thy throne:
FOR SUNDAY AND CHARITY
HYMN 110. II. 4.
CHILDREN AND CONGREGATION.
1 COME let our voices join, In one glad song of praise; To GOD, the GOD of love,
Our grateful hearts we raise:
To GOD alone your praise belongs; His love demands your earliest songs.
2 Now we are taught to read The book of life divine; Where our Redeemer's love, And brightest glories shine:
