Still we are thine, the name we bear,

Here yet is thine abode;
Long hast thou made our land thy care;
Forsake us not, O God!

FUNERALS. 298. Reflections on Mortality.

CROWLE. C. M.
BENEATH our feet and o'er our head,

Is equal warning given;
Beneath us lie the countless dead,

Above us is the heaven.
Their names are graven on the stone,

Their bones are in the clay;
And ere another day is gone,

Ourselves may be as they.
Turn, mortal, turn! thy danger know;

Where'er thy foot can tread,
The earth rings hollow from below,

And warns thee of her dead.
Turn, Christian, turn! thy soul apply :

To truths divinely givin;
The bones that underneath thee lie

Shall live for hell or heav'n.

299.“ Şure and certain Hope of the Resurrection."

ST. MARY's. C. M.
WHY should we dread our mortal doom,

That turns us back to clay ;
And tremble at the awful tomb;

And shudder at decay?
A sure and certain hope is ours,

Which we through Christ obtain:
Cloth'd with immortal life and powers,

Our dust shall rise again ;-
Rise, when the trump of God shall sound,

And Death yield up his prey;
But where, my soul, shall I be found

In that tremendous day!
Now, while I feel this mortal strife,

Oh be my sins forgiven!
Then, death shall prove the gate of life;

The grave, my road to heaven. 300. On the Death of a Minister.

BRADING. L. M.
THE Pastor's voice we lov'd to hear,
But often heard, alas, in vain,
In ballow'd words of praise and prayer,
Will never bless our ear again!"
Oh let us dwell with solemn thought
On all the words of truth he gave;
The lesson to the heart is brought,
When sorrow muses o'er the grave.
O Saviour, from thy holy hill
Regard our wants, and hear our cry :
Thou art our Guide and Shepherd still,
Though earthly pastors fall and die.
When thou didst bid thy flock farewell,
Thy love could make their sorrows cease:
The Spirit came with them to dwell ;
Thy messenger of truth and peace.

Moscow. P. M.
LORD, dismiss us with thy blessing,

Fill our hearts with joy and peace; ..
Let us each, thy love possessing,
Triumph in redeeming grace:

O refresh us,
Trav'lling throngh this wilderness.
Thanks we give, and adoration, ..

For the gospel's joyful sound;
May the fruits of thy salvation
In our hearts and lives abound:

May thy presence,
With us evermore be found.

302.

BENEDICTION. P. M. .
MAY the grace of Christ our Saviour,

And the Father's boundless love,
With the Holy Spirit's favor,

Rest upon us from above.
Thus may we abide in union,

With each other, and the Lord ;
And possess, in sweet communion,
Joys which earth cannot afford.
