462 The earnest and pledge of joys to come. WHY should the children of a King

Go mourning all their days? Great Comforter, descend and bring

The tokens of thy grace. 2 Dost thou not dwell in all thy saints,

And seal the heirs of heaven? When wilt thou banish my complaints,

And show my sins forgiven ? 3 Assure my conscience of her part

In the Redeemer's blood; Aud bear thy witness with my heart,

That I am born of God. 4 Thou art the earnest of his love,

The pledge of joys to come;
May thy blest wings, celestial Dove,

Safely convey me home.

828 Strength renewed by waiting upon 89-c.

the Lord. ORD, I believe thy every word, And lo! I wait on thee, my Lord,

Till I my strength renew. 2 If in this feeble flesh I may

Awhile show forth thy praise, Jesus, support the tott'ring clay,

And lengthen out my days. 3 If such a worm as I can spread

The common Saviour's name, Let Him who raised thee from the dead,

Quicken my mortal frame. 4 Still let me live thy blood to show,

Which purges every stain; And gladly linger out below

A few more years in pain.

634 Family Devotion : In deep afliction. O GOODwho madest earth and sky, Give ear to this thy family,

And help us when we pray:-
2 For wild the waves of bitterness

Around our vessel roar,
And heavy grows the pilot's heart,

To ew the rocky shore.
3 The cross our Master bore for us,

For him we fain would bear; But mortal strength to weakness turns,

And courage to despair. 4 Have mercy on our failings, Lord;

Our sinking faith renew; And when thy sorrows visit us,

O send thy patience too.

Delightful assurance. 101-a. SOV'REIGN of all the worlds on high,

Allow my humble claim ;
Nor while, unworthy, I draw nigh,

Disdain a Father's name. 2 My Father, God! that gracious word

Dispels my guilty fear;
Not all the notes by angels heard

Could so delight my ear.
3 Come, Holy Ghost, thyself impress

On my expanding heart;
And show that in the Father's grace

I share a filial part. 4 Cheer'd by that witness from on high,

Unwav'ring I believe;
And Abba, Father, humbly cry;

Nor can the sign deceive.

For all, my Lord was crucified ; For all, for all, my Saviour died.

306 Proclaiming the universal Saviour. 142-a.
L
ET earth and heaven agree,

Angels and men be join'd,
To celebrate with me

The Saviour of mankind;
To' adore the all-atoning Lamb,
And bless the sound of Jesus' name.
2 Jesus! transporting sound !

The joy of earth and heaven;
No other help is found,

No other name is given,
By which we can salvation have;
But Jesus came the world to save,
3 Jesus !· harmonious name!

It charms the hosts above;
They evermore proclaim,

And wonder at, his love :
'Tis all their happiness to gaze,-
"Tis heaven to see our Jesus' face.
4 His name the sinner hears,

And is from sin set free; 'Tis music in his ears ;

"Tis life and victory;
New songs do now his lips employ,
And dances his glad heart for joy.
5 O unexampled love!

O all-redeeming grace!
How swiftly didst thou move

To save a fallen race !
What shall I do to make it known,
What thou for all mankind hast done?
6 O for a trumpet voice,

On all the world to call, -
To bid their hearts rejoice

In him who died for all :

200 Rejoicing in the fulfilment of the 163--02

promise.
SINNERS, lift up your hearts,

The promise to receive;
Jesus himself imparts,-

He comes in man to live:
The Holy Ghost to man is given;
Rejoice in God sent down from heaven
2 Jesus is glorified,

And gives the Comforter, His Spirit, to reside

In all his members here;
The Holy Ghost to man is given;
Rejoice in God sent down from heaven.
3 To make an end of sin,

And Satan's works destroy,
He brings his kingdom in,

Peace, righteousness, and joy:
The Holy Ghost to man is given;
Rejoice in God sent down from heaven.
4 From heaven he shall once more

Triumphantly descend,
And all his saints restore

To joys that never end :
Then, then, when all our joys are given,
Rejoice in God, rejoice in heaven.

Longing for the house of God. 161-a. LORD of the worlds above,

How pleasant and how fair
The dwellings of thy love,

Thine earthly temples, are;
To thine abode my heart aspires,
With warm desires to see my God.
2 O happy souls that pray

Where God appoints to hear!
O happy men that pay

Their constant service there!
They praise thee still; and happy they
That love the way to Zion's hill.
3 They go from strength to strength,

Through this dark vale of tears,
Till each arrives at length,

Till each in heaven appears :
O glorious seat! thou, God our King,
Shalt thither bring our willing feet.
4 The Lord his people loves ;

His hand no good withholds
From those his heart approves,

From humble, contrite souls:
Thrice happy he, O God of hosts,
Whose spirit trusts alone in thee!

And why together brought

To see each other's face ;To join with softest sympathy, And mix our friendly' souls in thee? 3 Didst thou not make us one,

That we might one remain ;Together travel on,

Ånd bear each other's pain ;Till all thy utmost goodness prove, And rise renewid in perfect love? 4 Surely thou didst unite

Our kindred spirits here,
That all hereafter might

Before thy throne appear; Meet at the marriage of the Lamb, And all thy gracious love proclaim. 5 Then let us ever bear

The blessed end in view,
And join with mutual care,

To fight our passage through;
And kindly help each other on,
Till all receive the starry crown.
6 O may thy Spirit seal

Our souls unto that day!
With all thy fulness fill,

And then transport away, -
Away to our eternal rest,
Away to our Redeemer's breast.

699 Bear yo one another's burdens. 160-a. THOU God of truth and love,

We seek thy perfect way,
Ready thy choice to' approve,

Thy providence to obey ;
Enter into thy wise design,
And sweetly lose our will in thine.
2 Why hast thou cast our lot

In the same age and place ?
