12.RO 297. The Prayer of the Righteous powerful."

ST. MATTHEW's. D. C.M., W
WHEN Abraham, full of holy fear, r:T
Before Jehovah stood;

*: bris And with an humble, fervent prayer,

For guilty Sodom sued:
With what success, what wondrous grace,

Was his petition crown'd!
The Lord would spare, if in the place

Ten righteous men were found.
And could a man have power ou high, **

A boon so vast to gain ?
Great God! and shall a nation cry,

And plead with thee in vain ?
Still we are thine, thy name we bear, His

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 i

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 erę 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 it

To truths divinely giv'n; ;
The bones that underneath thee lie

Shall live for hell or heav'n.

99." Sure 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.

301.

MOŚcow. 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 through 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.
