Late in time behold him come,

Offspring of a virgin's womb !
4 Veil'd in flesh, the Godhead see :

Hail th' incarnate Deity !
Pleased as man with man ť appear-

Jesus, our Immanuel here.
5 Hail the heav'n-born Prince of Peace !

Hail the Sun of Righteousness !
Light and life to all he brings,

Risen with healing on his wings.
6 Mild, he lays his glory by,

Born that man no more may die,
Born to raise the sons of earth,
Born to give them second birth.

. Lord

XLV.

Heavenly Guidance.

[ROUSSEAU'S DREAM.]
1 GUIDE me, O thou great Jehovah,

Pilgrim through this barren land;
I am weak, but thou art mighty-
Hold me by thy powerful hand :

Bread of heaven!
Feed me till I want no more.
2 Open thou the crystal fountain,

Whence the healing streams do flow;
Let the fiery, cloudy pillar
Lead me all my journey through:

Strong Deliverer!
Be thou still my strength and shield!
3 When I tread the verge of Jordan,

Bid my anxious cares subside ;

Death of deaths, and hell's destruction,
Land me safe on Canaan's side!

Songs of praises,
I will ever give to thee !

1 LORD, now we part in thy blest name,

In which we here together came,
Grant us, our few remaining days,

To work thy will and spread thy praise ! 2 Teach us in life and death to bless

The Lord, our strength and righteousness;
And grant us all to meet above;
Then shall we better sing thy love.

1 The day of wrath! that dreadful day

When heaven and earth shall pass away;
What power shall be the sinner's stay,

Whom shall he trust that dreadful day? 2 When shrivelling like a parched scroll,

The flaming heavens together roll ;
When louder yet, and yet more dread,

Swells the high trump that wakes the dead ! 3 Oh, on that day, that wrathful day,

When man to judgment wakes from clay! Be thou, O Christ, the sinner's stay, Though heaven and earth shall pass away!

XLVIII. This do in remembrance of me.

LUKE xxii. 19.

[CROFT'S CHANT, FRENCH.]
1 ACCORDING to thy gracious word,

In meek humility,
This will I do, my dying Lord,

I will remember thee.
2 Thy body broken for my sake,

My bread from heaven shall be ;
Thy testamental cross I take,

And thus remember thee.
3 Gethsemane can I forget,

Or there thy conflict see,
Thine agony and bloody sweat,

And not remember thee?
4 When to the cross I turn mine eyes,

And rest on Calvary,
O Lamb of God, my sacrifice,

I must remember thee!
5 Remember thee, and all thy pains,

And all thy love to me-
Yea, while a breath or pulse remains,

Will I remember thee.
6 And when these failing lips grow dumb,

And mind and memory flee,
When thou shalt in thy kingdom come,

Jesus, remember me.

LUKE I. 68.

( MORNINGTON CHANT.) 1 BLESSED be the Lord God of Israel ;

For he hath visited and redeemed his people : 2 And hath raised up an horn of sal-vation for us

In the house of his servant David. 3 As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets,

Which have been since the world began. 4 That we should be saved from our enemies,

And from the hands of all that hate us. 5 To perform the mercy promised to our fore

fathers, And to re-member his holy covenant. 6 The oath, which he sware to our father Abra

ham, That he would grant unto us : ng That we, being delivered out of the hand of

our enemies, Might serve him without fear : 8 In holiness and righteous-ness before him

All the days of our life.

9 And thou, child, shalt be called the prophet

of the Highest; For thou shalt go before the face of the Lord

to prepare his ways: 10 To give knowledge of salvation un-to his people,

By the re-mission of their sins, 11 Through the tender mercy of our God, Whereby the day-spring from on high hath

visited us : : 12 To give light to them that sit in darkness, and

in the shadow of death ; And to guide our feet in-to the way of peace.

TE DEUM.

[JONES'S CHANT.) 1 We praise thee, O God,

We acknowledge thee to be the Lord.
2 All the earth doth worship thee,

The Father everlasting,
3 To thee all angels cry aloud,

The heavens, and all the powers therein.'
4 To thee cherubim and seraphim

Con-tinually do cry.
5 Holy, holy, holy,

Lord God of Şabaoth.
6 Heaven and earth are full

Of the majesty of thy glory.
7 The glorious company

Of the Apostles praise thee.
