Music, (Consolation,) See 4th Numb. Mel. Sac.

1. COME on my partners in distress, Companions through this wilderness

Who still life's burthen feel :
Awhile forget our pains, our fears ;
O look beyond this vale of tears

To that celestial hill !
2. Who suffer with their master here
Shall yet before his throne appear,

And by his side sit down :
To patient faith the prize is sure ;
And all who to the end endure

The cross, shall wear the crown. 3. Beyond the bounds of time and space Look onward to that heavenly place,

The saints' secure abode !
On faith's strong eagle-pinions rise,
And force your passage to the skies,

And scale the mount of God.

XCVIII.
HARK THE GLAD SOUND.

( By Doddridge, See Luke iv. 18, 19.)

Music, same as 122nd Psalm, Mel. Sac. 1. HARK the glad sound, the Saviour comes,

The Saviour promised long !
Let every heart prepare a tlırone,

And every voice a song.
2. On him the Spirit, largely shed,

Exerts his sacred fire
Wisdom and might and love and zeal

His holy breast inspire.
3. He comes, the prisoners to release

In Satan's bondage held:
The gates of brass before him burst;

The iron fetters yield.
4. He comes, from dark’ning scales

To clear the inward sight of vice,
And o'er the eye balls of the blind

To pour celestial light.
5. He comes, the broken hearts to bind;

The bleeding souls to cure:
And with the treasures of his grace

To enrich the humble poor.

6. Our glad hosannas, Prince of Peace,

Thy welcome shall proclaim;
And Heaven's exalted arches ring

With Thine adored name !

XCIX.
ON RELIGIOUS DOUBT.

(By Corper.) Music, same as 32nd Psalm, Mel. Sac. 1. WHEN darkness long hath veil'd my mind,

And smiling day once more appears ; Then, my Redeemer, then I find

The folly of my doubts and fears. 2. O! let me then at length be taught

What I am still so slow to learn; That God is love and changes not,

Nor knows the shadow of a turn. 3. Sweet truth, and easy to repeat !

But, when my faith is sharply tried, I find myself a learner yet,

Unskilful, weak, and apt to slide. 4. Still thou’rt as willing to forgive

As I am ready to repine:
Thou, therefore, all the praise receive,
Be shame and self-abhorrence mine.

OLD HUNDREDTH PSALM.

As sung at the Anniversary Meetings of the
Parochial School Children in London, at the

Cathedral Church of St. Paul.

Music, by Martin Luther, (See 100th Psalm Mel. Sac.) 1. ALL people that on earth do dwell,

Sing to the Lord with cheerful voice: Him serve with fear, his praise forth tell,

Come ye before him and rejoice.
2. The Lord, ye know, is God indeed;

Without our aid He did us make:
We are his flock, he doth us feed,

And for his sheep he doth us take. 3. O enter then His gates with praise,

Approach with joy his Courts unto: Praise, laud, and bless his name always,

For it is seemly so to do.. 4. For why? the Lord our God is good, . His mercy is for ever sure: His truth at all times firmly stood,

And shall from age to age endure.

(By Rev. A. G. Toplady.)
Music, same as 136th Psalm, Mel. Sac.

1.

JESUS at thy command
I launch into the deep;
And leave my native land,

Where sin lulls all asleep:
For thee I would the world resign,

And sail to heaven with thee and thine. 2. Thou art my pilot wise ;

My compass is thy word:
My soul each storm defies,

While I have such a Lord !
I trust thy faithfulness and power,

To save me in the trying hour. 3. Whene'er becalm'd I lie,

And angry storms subside ;
Then to my succour fly

And keep me near thy side !
Far more the treacherous calm I dread
Than tempests bursting o'er my head.
