3 He my soul anew shall frame,

And, his mercy to proclaim,
When through devious paths I stray,

Teach my steps the better way.
4 Thou my plenteous board hast spread,

Thou with oil refreshed my head :
Filled by thee my cup o'erflows;

For thy love no limit knows. 5 Constant, to my latest end,

Thou my footsteps shalt attend,
And shalt bid thy hallowed dome,
Yield me an eternal home.

DRUMMOND.

1 The God who reigns alone

O’er earth, and sea, and sky,
Let man with praises own,

And sound his honors high.

2 Him all in heaven above,

Him all on earth below,
The exhaustless source of love,

The great Creator know.
3 He formed the living flame,

He gave the reasoning mind;
Then only He may claim

The worship of mankind.
4 So taught his only Son,
Blest messenger

of

grace The Eternal is but one,

No second holds his place.

78.M.

Salis. Col. 1 Holy, holy, holy Lord !

Be thy glorious name adored;
Lord, thy mercies never fail;

Hail, celestial goodness, hail!
2 Though unworthy, Lord, thine ear

Deign our humble songs to hear;
Purer praise we hope to bring.

When around thy throne we sing. '3 Lord, thy mercies never fail ;

Hail, celestial goodness, hail;
Holy, holy, holy Lord!
Be thy glorious name adored.

C. M.

A. Ballou. 1 0, could I come to thee, my God,

From every care away,
And kiss thy sin-correcting rod,

And make thy love my stay!
2 Then in the bosom of thy grace,

I'd lay me meekly down,
The waters of salvation taste,

And all my sorrows drown.
3 0 then my soul's delight should be

To keep thy heavenly law,
To yield myself entire to thee,

In love and filial awe.
4 Then pure philanthropy would flow

With piety along,
A balmy stream for every woe,

Redress for every wrong.

L. M. BIRMINGHAM Col. 1 Father, adored in worlds above!

Thy glorious name be hallowed still;
Thy kingdom come in truth and love;

And earth, like heaven, obey thy will, 2 Lord, make our daily wants thy care;

Forgive the sins which we forsake :
In thy compassion let us share,

As fellow men of ours partake. 3 Evils beset us every hour;

Thy kind protection we implore,
Thine is the kingdom, thine the

power,
The glory thine for evermore.

75. M.

MERRICK. 1 Praise, O praise the name divine,

Praise him at the hallowed shrine;
Let the firmament on high

To its Maker's praise reply.
2 All who vital breath enjoy,

In his praise that breath employ,
And in one great chorus join ;
Praise, O praise the name divine.

25.

C. M. H. M. WILLIAMS. 1 While thee I seek, protecting Power!

Be my vain wishes stilled ;
And
may

this consecrated hour
With better hopes be filled.

2 Thy love the power of thought bestowed ;

To thee my thoughts would soar ;
Thy mercy o'er my life has flowed

That mercy I adore !
3 In each event of life, how clear

Thy ruling hand I see!
Each blessing to my soul more dear,

Because conferred by thee.

4 In every joy that crowns my days,

In every pain I bear,
My heart shall find delight in praise,

Or seek relief in prayer.

5 When gladness wings my favored hour,

Thy love my thoughts shall hill :
Resigned, when storms of sorrow lower,

My soul shall meet thy will, 6 My lifted eye, without a tear,

The gathering storm shall see :
My steadfast heart shall know no fear ;-

That heart shall rest on thee!

26.

8s. & 7s. WESLEY's Col. I Love divine, all love excelling,

Joy of heaven, to earth come down ;
Fix in us thy humble dwelling,

All thy faithful mercies crown.
Father ! thou art all compassion,

Pure, unbounded love thou art;
Visit us with thy salvation,

Enter every longing heart.

2 Breathe, O breathe thy loving Spirit

Into every troubled breast;
Let us all in thee inherit,

Let us find thy promised rest.
Come, almighty to deliver,

Let us all thy life receive,
Graciously come down, and never,

Never more thy temples leave.

Watts.

S. M.
1 My God, permit my tongue

This joy, to call thee mine;
And let my early cries prevail

To taste thy love divine. 2 My thirsty, fainting soul

Thy mercy does implore;
Not travelers in desert lands

Can pant for water more.

3 For life without thy love

No relish can afford;
No joy can be compared to this,

To serve and please the Lord. 4 Since thou hast been my help,

To thee my spirit flies,
And on thy watchful providence

My cheerful hope relies. 5 The shadow of thy wings

My soul in safety keeps :
I follow where my Father leads,
And he supports my steps.
