rnp 2 Pris'ners of hope, in gloom |

> And silence, left to die! \

< With Christ's unfolding tomb, \ mf Your portals open fly: [

Eise with your Lord—he sets you free; *

It is the year of jubilee.
—- 3 Ye, who yourselves have sold

For debts to justice due,
Ransomed—but not with gold!

He gave himself for you:

< The blood of Christ hath made you free;
/ It is the year of jubilee.
— 4 Captives of sin and shame!

O'er earth and ocean, hear
mf An angel's voice proclaim
/' The Lord's accepted year:

. Let Jacob rise—be Israel free;
It is the year of jubilee.

f 1 CHOUT,—for the great Redeemer reigns,

O Through distant lands his triumphs spread; Sinners, now freed from Satan's chains, Own him their Saviour and their Head. 2 Oh 1 may his conquests still increase; Let every foe his power subdue; "While angels celebrate his praise, Saints shall his rising glories show. ff 3 Loud hallelujahs to the Lamb,

From all below and all above;

In lofty songs, exalt his name,—

In songs as lasting as his love,

'T was thy hand restored the light; Lord! thy mercies still are new, Plenteous, as the morning dew. mp 4 Still my feet are prone to stray,— Oh! preserve me through the day; Dangers every where abound, i

Sins and snares beset me round. * *

Morning Prayer Meeting.

m 1 ITOW sweet the melting lay,
-tl That breaks upon the ear,
"When, at the hour of rising day,
Christians unite in prayer!

mp 2 The breezes waft their cries, Up to Jehovah's throne;

— He listens to their bursting sighs,

And sends his blessings down.

3 So Jesus rose to pray,

Before the morning light; mp Once on the chilling mount did stay, And wrestle all the night.

/ 4 Glory to God on high,

"Who sends his blessings down, > To rescue souls condemned to die,

— And make his people one.

t/Ol Morning Meditations.

f 1 A "WAKE, my drowsy soul!
•A These airy visions chase;
Awake, my active powers renewed!
To run the heavenly race.

2 See—how the rising sun

Pursues his shining way;
And wide proclaims his Maker's praise,
"With every brightening ray!

3 Thus would my rising soul

Her heavenly Parent sing;
And to her great Original
\ — Her humble tribute bring.

4 Serene, I laid me down
Beneath his guardian care;

I slept, and woke; and still I found
My kind Preserver near.

mp 5 Dear Saviour! to thy cross,

I bring my sacrifice; < Tinged with thy blood, it shall ascend,

mf With fragrance to the skies.

HYMN 582, C. M.

A Morning Song.


mf 1 ANOE more, my soul! the rising day
v/ Salutes thy waking eyes;
Once more, my voice! thy tribute pay
To him who rules the skies.

2 Night unto night his name repeats,
The day renews the sound ;—
f Wide as the heaven, on which he sits

— To turn the seasons round.

> 3 'T is he supports my mortal frame,—

— My tongue shall speak his praise;

< My sins would rouse his wrath to flame,

— And yet his wrath delays.

mp 4 A thousand wretched souls are fled, Since the last setting sun;

— And yet he lengthens out my thread,—

And yet my moments run.

5 Great God! let all my hours be thine,
Whilst I enjoy the light;

> Then shall my sun in smiles decline,
p And bring a peaceful night.

tsCjfJ Morning Gratitude.

p 1 T1ST sleep's serene oblivion laid,

1 I safely passed the silent night;

mf Again I see the breaking shade,—

I drink again the morning li'ght.

2 New born, I bless the waking hour,
Once more, with awe, rejoice to be;

< My conscious soul resumes her power,

f And springs, my guardian God! to thee.

— 3 Oh! guide me through the various maze,

My doubtful feet may this day tread;

< And spread thy shield's protecting blaze,

— Where dangers press around my head.
