Why, O mother, will you weep?
309. A Companion gone to bear witness.(c.m.) SILENT and dead our playmate lies
His time on earth is o'er;
Shall never know him more.
His body to the dust,
The wicked and the just.
And unto Jesus given ;
To run our race to heaven.
Shall he and conscience tell, How he has seen us live on earth

312. Evening and Morning will I pray. (7’s.)
What is praying-can you tell ? Have you ever thought it o'er ? Lips may speak the words right well, But there needeth something more. What you ask within your heart, Wishing God to give, or do, That's your prayer : the speaking part Oft is empty, or not true. When you kneel and say your prayers, In God's house or when alone, O remember God is there, Even your thoughts to Him are known. And I hope you often pray, When there's none to see or hear : At your work, your walk, your play, Lift your heart, for God is near.
313. I know not how to pray. (c.m.) A LITTLE child I bend my knee,
Lord, teach me how to pray,
For I was born with sinful heart,
I sin each day I live,
But what thy grace shall give.
Thy flock that were astray,
To Thee in thine own way.
That I might be forgiven, O never let me turn aside,
But fit my soul for heaven.
314. The Spirit of Grace and Supplication.
have them. In everything, by prayer and supplication
with thanksgiving, Let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God which passeth all
understanding Shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
