His mercies ever shall endure,
When this vain world shall be no more.

Who earth and heav'n commands:.

Hymn 146. L. M.
OD of my life, whose gracious pow'r Thro' various deaths my soul hath led, Or turn'd aside the fatal hour,
Or lifted up my sinking head!
2. In all my ways thy hand I own, Thy ruling providence I see; Assist me still my course to run,
And still direct my path to thee. 3. Whither, O whither should I fly,
But to my loving Saviour's breast, Secure within thy arms to lie,
And safe beneath thy wing to rest? 4. I have no skill the snare to shun,
But thou, O Christ! my wisdom art; I ever into ruin run,
But thou art greater than my heart. 5. Foolish, and impotent, and blind
Lead me a way I have not known; Bring me where I my heav'n may find,. The heav'n of loving thee alone.
6. Enlarge my heart to make thee room:
The crooked then shall straight become:.
Hymn 147. B. M.
HO' troubles assail and dangers affright; Tho' friends should all fail, and foes all unite: Yet one thing secures us, whatever betide, The promise assures us: The Lord will provide, 2. The birds without barn or store-house are fed: From them let us learn to trust for our bread: His saints what is fitting shall ne'er be deny'd, So long as it's written The Lord will provide..
3. We all may, like ships, by tempest be tost
We know not the way, but faith makes us bold; For tho' we are strangers, we have a sure guide, And trust in all dangers: The Lord will provide. 5. When satan appears to stop up our path,
And fills us with fears, we triumph by faith: He cannot take from us (tho' oft he has try'd) The heart cheering promise: The Lord will provide. 6. He tells us we're weak, our hope is in vain,
The good that we seek, we ne'er shall obtain: But when such suggestions our graces have try'd,. This answers all questions: The Lord will provide. 7. No strength of our own, nor goodness we claim, Our trust is all thrown on Jesus's name; In this our strong tower, for safety we hide; The Lord is our pow'r: The Lord will provide..
3, When life sinks apace, and death is in view,
The word of his grace shall comfort us through; Not fearing or doubting, with Christ on our side,.. We hope to die shouting: The Lord will provide,
Hymn 148. c. M:
OD moves in a mysterious way,
2. Deep in unfathomable mines
He treasures up his bright designs,.
3. Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take, The clouds ye so much dread
Are big with mercy, and shall break.
4. Judge not the Lord by feeble sense,
The bud may have a bitter taste;
And scan his work in vain. God is his own interpreter, And he will make it plain.
Hymn 149. L. M.
EACE, troubled soul, thou need'st not fear;
still is near ;
Who fed thee last will feed thee still,
2. The Lord who built the earth and sky, In mercy stoops to hear thy cry;
His promise all may freely claim : "Ask and receive in Jesu's name.'
3. His stores are open all and free,
And sends them food as they have need;
