To toil through poverty and scorn,

Through weakness, and through wo:2 Immanuel! who, by every grief,

By each temptation tried,
Hast liv'd to yield our wants relief,

And, to redeem us, died !
3 If, gaily cloth’d, and proudly fed,

In careless ease we dwell; Remind us of thy'manger-bed,

And lowly cottage-cell.
4. If, press'd by penury severe,

In envious want we pine,
May conscience whisper in our ear,

A poorer lot was thine.
5 From all the viewless snares of sin,

Preserve us firm and free; As Thou, like us, hast tempted been,

May we rejoice with Thee.

HYMN XLIX. S. M. i My few revolving years, .

How swift they glide away! How short the term of life appears, .. - When past but as a day! 2. A dark and cloudy day,..

Made up of grief and sin,
A host of enemies without, . : :

Distressing fears within. ..

3 Lord, through another year,

If Thou permit my stay, With diligence may I pursue

The true and living way!

HYMN L. L. M.
1 BEFORE Jehovah's aweful throne,

Ye nations, bow with sacred joy;
Know that the Lord is God alone;
He can create, and He destroy.

2 His Sov'reign pow'r, without our aid,

Made us of clay, and form'd us men; And when likewand'ring sheep westray'd,

He brought us to his fold again. 3 We'll crowd thy gates with thankful

songs; High as the heay'ns our voices raise; And earth with her ten thousand tongues,

Shall fill thy courts with sounding praise. 4 Wide as the world is thy command;

Vast as eternity thy love:
Firm as a rock thy truth shall stand,
When rolling years shall cease to move.

HYMN LI. C. M.
1 THERE is a land of pure delight,

Where saints immortal reign :

Infinite day excludes the night,

And pleasures banish pain.
2 Lo! rising from the swelling flood,

Th’ eternal hills are seen!
So Canaan's promis'd land was view'd,

While Jordan rollid between. 3 But timorous mortals start and shrink,

To cross the narrow sea,
And linger, shivering on the brink,

Afraid to launch away. 4 Oh! conld we make our doubts remove,

Those gloomy doubts that rise; And see the Canaan that we love,

With faith's illumin'd eyes;

5 Could we but climb where Moses stood,

And view the landscape o'er, Not Jordan's waves, nor death's cold food,

Should fright us from the shore.

Funeral.

HYMN LIÍ. L. M. 1 Life is the time to serve the Lord,

The time to ensure the great reward : And while the lamp holds out to burn, The vilest sinner may return.

2 Life is the hour, that God has given

To ’scape from hell, and fly to heaven;
The day of grace, and mortals may

Secure the blessings of the day.
3 There are no acts of pardon pass’d

In the cold grave, to which we haşte;
But torment, horror, and despair

Shall meet remorseless sinners there. 4 Then, what our thoughits design to do,

May we, with all our might, pursue; Since no device, nor work is found, Wisdom, nor grace beneath the ground.

nooroon HYMN LIII. S.C. M.'. 1 HEAR what the voice from heaven pro

claims, ... For all the pious dead; Sweet is the savour of their names,

And soft their sleeping bed.
2 They die in Jesus, and are blest,

How kind their slumbers are !
From sufferings and from sins releas'd,

And freed from every snare.
3 Far from this world of toil and strife,

They're present with the Lord;
The labours of their mortal life

End in a large reward. .

Fast.

HYMN LIV. P. M. 1 DREAD Jehovah ! God of nations,

From thy temple in the skies, Hear thy people's supplications,

Now for their deliverance rise. Lo! with deep contrition turning,

Humbly at thy feet we bend; Fasting, praying, weeping, mourning,

Hear us, spare us, and defend.

% Though our sins, our hearts confounding,

Long and loud for vengeance call,
Thou hast mercy more abounding;

Jesus' blood can cleanse them all;
Let that mercy veil transgression,

Let that blood our guilt efface ; Save thy people from oppression,

Save from spoil thy holy-place.

3 Hear, O God, the vows we render;

With our hosts to battle go:
Shield the head of each defender,

And confound the haughty foe :
So, when ceased the battle's raging,

Thine shall be the victor's praise ; And, in holy bonds engaging,

We will serve Thee all our days,
