1. The pure and peaceful mind,

The meek and lowly heart,
The patient will, to Thine resign'd,

God of all power, impart.
2. Young though in years we be,

In health and spirits strong,
What is the life of man to Thee?

The longest is not long. 3. A thousand years, a day,

Are equal in Thy sight;
Our generations pass away,

Like watches of the night. 4. Lord, make us timely wise To know our call of

grace ; And with the moment, as it flies,

Run our appointed race :5. Still keep the end in view,

Tarry nor turn aside,
Perils, allurements, bonds break through,

Most faithful when most tried ! 6. Thus, till we reach the goal,

All else we count but loss;
Nor, till we gain the prize,-our soul,-

Grow weary of the cross. J. MONTGOMERY.

1. To-MORROW, Lord, is thine,

Lodged in Thy sovereign hand;
And if its sun arise and shine,

It shines by Thy command. 2. The present moment flies,

And bears our life away,
Oh, make Thy servants truly wise,

That they may live to-day ! 3. Since on this winged hour

Eternity is hung,
Waken, by Thine almighty power,

The aged and the young.
4. One thing demands our care,

Oh, be it still pursued !
Lest, slighted once, the season fair

Should never be renew'd. 5. To Jesus may we fly,

Swift as the morning light,
Lest life's young golden beams should die,
In sudden endless night.

DODDRIDGE.

1. COME, Holy Spirit, come ;

Let Thy bright beams arise ;
Dispel our sorrows from our minds,

The darkness from our eyes. 2. Convince us all of sin,

Then lead us to the Lord,
And to our wondering view reveal

The mercies of Thy Word. 3. Cheer our desponding hearts

With consolations sweet,
Give us to lie, with humble hope,

At our Redeemer's feet. 4. Revive our drooping faith,

Our doubts and fears remove, And kindle in our breasts the flame

Of never-dying love.
5. Dwell Thou within our hearts,

Our minds from bondage free;
Then shall we know, and praise, and love,

The Father, Son, and Thee.

1. Not all the blood of beasts

On Jewish altars slain,
Could give the guilty conscience peace,

Or wash away the stain.
2. But Christ, the heav'nly Lamb,

Takes all our sins away ;
A sacrifice of nobler name

And richer blood than they. 3. My faith would lay its hand

On that dear head of thine,
While like a penitent I stand,

And there confess my sin. 4. My soul looks back to see

The burdens Thou didst bear,
When hanging on th' accursed tree,

And hopes her guilt was there. 5. Believing, we rejoice

To see the curse remove :
We bless the Lamb with cheerful voice

And sing his bleeding love.

1. WELCOME, sweet day of rest,

That saw the Lord arise!
Welcome to this reviving breast,

And these rejoicing eyes !
2. The King himself comes near,

And meets His saints to.day ;
Here we may sit, and see Him here,

And love, and praise, and pray. 3. One day amidst the place,

Where my bless'd Lord has been, 18 sweeter than ten thousand days

Of pleasurable sin.
4. My willing soul would stay

In such a frame as this,
And wait the bright and perfect day

Of everlasting bliss.

WATTS,

1. BEHOLD, the morning sun

Begins his glorious way;
His beams through all the nations run,

And light and life convey.
2. But, Lord, Thy Word supplies

A brighter, holier light;
It trains the simple to be wise,

And gives the blind their sight, 3. How perfect is Thy Word !

Thy judgments, too, how just !
To Thy unfailing promise, Lord,

May men securely trust.
4. While with my heart and tongue

I spread Thy praise abroad;
Accept the worship, and the song,

My Saviour, and my God!
