Till dawns the bright, illustrious day,
Soon, &c. 3 How loud shall our glad voices sing,
When Christ his risen saints shall bring
Šoon, &c. 4 When Jesus we in glory meet,
Our utmost joys shall be complete;
Soon, &c. 5 Hasten, dear Lord, the glorious day,
And this delightful scene display,
591. C.M.-Comfort under the loss of christian friends. 1 Thess. iv. 13—18. 1 TAKE comfort, Christians, when your friends
In Jesus fall asleep ;
Why then dejected weep? 2 Why inconsolable as those
To whom no hope is given ?
Victorious from the dead;
With their triumphant Head. 4 The time draws nigh, when from the clouds
Christ shall with shouts descend,
The heavens and earth shall rend.
5 Then they who lived shall changed be,
And they who sleep shall wake;
shall yield their ancient charge, And earth's foundations shake. 6 The saints of God from death set free,
With joy shall mount on high;
Shall meet them in the sky.
With joyful steps they go;
Beyond the reach of woe.
We reach the happy shore, Where death-divided friends at last
Shall meet, to part no more.
S. M.-The gospel. i BEHOLD the sun how bright,
From yonder east he springs, As if the soul of life and light
Were breathing from his wings. 2 So bright the gospel broke
Upon the souls of men;
In truth's full radiance then! 3 Before yon sun arose,
Stars cluster'd through the sky-
To his one burning eye!
To bless the pagan's sight-
To thy one glorious light.
S. M.-Psalm Ixvii.
And shower his blessing down,
prayer and hope to crown. 2 That earth may know thy ways,
Thy saving light be pour'd
All nations praise thee, Lord.
Sing out for joy and mirth,
And guide the tribes on earth. 4 Let nations name thee, Lord,
Thy name all nations fill,-
Hath open'd at our will.
Our own true God, is near
8.7. 4.-Psalm xciii.
Rob’d in his own glorious light,
Earth is pois'd to swerve no more ;
3 Lord, the water-floods have lifted,
Ocean-floods have lift their roar;
Glorious is the breaking deep;
Are the perfect verity ;
Sing the God whom we adore ;
Praise His Name and bless His Word. 2 Tidings tell from day to day,
Of His high and saving way;
Heathens all, His deeds of might. 3 Tell them God is great always,
Prais’d, and high above all praise :
Far above all gods is He.
Heaven He made, whom we obey;
Power and splendour in His shrine. 5 Households of the realms abroad,
Bring ye to the Lord our God :
Bring ye to the Lord aright,
Glory and eternal might.
Bring the glory of His name;
Enter in the holiest room.
In his beauty high apart;
Speak to every realm and race. 8 Tell it out, “ JEHOVAH reigns :
“ Fix'd and sure the world remains ;
“Righteous Judge of every land.” 9 Heaven is bright with bliss and mirth,
Springs for joy the solid earth;
Through his worlds the rapture owns. 10 Field exults and meadow fair,
With each bud and blossom there ;
Chants aloud each rustling bough,
See, He comes, He comes ador'd ;
148th M.–Psalm cxvi.
That God my voice should hear!
For he hath bow'd his ear,
To seek his aid, and sing his praise. 2 Around me, in the gloom,
Were bound the cords of death,
Had chain’d my weary breath;
