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;
Safely convey me home.

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:-
Around our vessel roar,
To ew the rocky shore.
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 ;
Disdain a Father's name. 2 My Father, God! that gracious word
Dispels my guilty fear;
Could so delight my ear.
On my expanding heart;
I share a filial part. 4 Cheer'd by that witness from on high,
Unwav'ring I believe;
Nor can the sign deceive.

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

Angels and men be join'd,
The Saviour of mankind;
The joy of earth and heaven;
No other name is given,
It charms the hosts above;
And wonder at, his love :
And is from sin set free; 'Tis music in his ears ;
"Tis life and victory;

He comes in man to live:
And gives the Comforter, His Spirit, to reside
In all his members here;
And Satan's works destroy,
Peace, righteousness, and joy:
To joys that never end :
Perpetual honors raise;
And to the Spirit praise :
Longing for the house of God. 161-a. LORD of the worlds above,
How pleasant and how fair
Thine earthly temples, are;
Where God appoints to hear!
Their constant service there!
Through this dark vale of tears,
Till each in heaven appears :
His hand no good withholds
From humble, contrite souls:
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,
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,
To fight our passage through;
Our souls unto that day!
And then transport away, -
699 Bear yo one another's burdens. 160-a. THOU God of truth and love,
We seek thy perfect way,
Thy providence to obey ;
In the same age and place ?
Perpetual honours raise ;
And to the Spirit praise:
