But in thy life the law appears,
Drawn out in brightest characters.
What zeal to do thy Father's will!
I would transcribe and make them mine. 3 Cold mountains and the midnight air
Witness'd the fervour of thy prayer;
Thy conflict, and thy victory too. 4 Be Thou my pattern ! let me bear
More of thy heavenly image here;
The heavenly Canaan.
Where saints immortal reign :
And pleasures banish pain.
The eternal hills are seen !
While Jordan roll'd between.
To cross the narrow' sea,
Afraid to launch away. 4 Oh! could we make our doubts remove,
Those gloomy doubts that rise ;
And see the Canaan that we love,
With faith's illumined eyes ;5 'Till from the mount where Moses stood,
We view the landscape o'er; Nor the proud waves of Jordan's flood,
Affright us from the shore.
HYMN 231. (P. M.
Seeking a better country. i From Egypt lately come,
Where death and darkness reign,
And, every conflict o'er,
Enraptured myriads sing,
And soon their pleasures share,
The insufficiency of formal services.
But nought attractive then could see,
Our Saviour !
How we had sold ourselves for nought,
Our Saviour !
And promised fair as any could;
Our Saviour ! 4 Too soon the promise vain we proved,
That sinners make while sin is loved,
Our Saviour ! 5 To pleasure prone, we thought it hard,
From pleasure's path to be debarr’d,
Our Saviour ! 6 O Thou ! whom we so long withstood,
Bring back our wandering souls to God,
Our Saviour !
(P. M. HAYDN.)
For the fruitfulness of God's vineyard. 1 SEE the vineyard lately planted,
By thy hand, O Lord of Hosts !
Let thy people's prayer be granted,
Keep it safe from hostile boasts: Hear, Oh ! hear us when we pray;
Keep thy vineyard night and day. 2 Drooping plants revive and nourish,
Let them thrive beneath thy hand; Let the weak grow strong and flourish,
Blooming fair at thy command: Let the fruitful yield Thee more,
Laden with a richer store. 3 Further, Lord ! be Thou entreated ;
Plant the barren waste around; Let thy work be thus completed,
And no fruitless spot be found; Let the earth a vineyard be, Consecrated, Lord ! to Thee.
For Christian love.
His image bear below:
With love to man will glow.
As we are loved of Thee :
Who live in enmity.
Our hopes and fears the same,
The law of love inflame.
4 So shall the vain contentious world
Our peaceful lives approve,
6 See how these Christians love."
(C. M. WARWICK.) Love, the most excellent of Christian graces. 1 Of all the graces that adorn
The Christian's hallow'd breast, Love is the fairest of the train,
The bond of all the rest. 2 Knowledge alone is all in vain ; In vain all servile fear
r; Our stubborn sins will still prevail,
If love be absent there.
In swift obedience move:
But Satan cannot love.
When faith and hope shall cease ;
For the conversion of the Jews. 1 Great God of Abraham ! hear our prayer ;
Let Abraham's seed thy mercy share ;
And look on Him they pierced and mourn. 2 Remember Jacob's flock of old,
Bring home the wanderers to thy fold :
