Benediction.
M AY the grace of Christ our Saviour,
11 And the Father's boundless love,
With the Holy Spirit's favour,

With each other and the Lord;
And possess, in sweet communion, .

Joys which earth cannot afford.

149. HYMN LVI. L. M. 1 ALMIGHTY Father! bless the word,

Which, thro’thy grace, we now have heard: O may the precious seed take root,

Spring up, and bear abundant fruit.

Thus in thy courts to seek thy face:
Grant, Lord, that all who worship here,
May, sav'd from sin, in heav'n appear.

Al Which bids the dying live:
O may the sound our hearts rejoice,

'Till life's remotest hour.

Life to sinners :
Joy to those who know the Lord!

Mercy through a Saviour's blood !
Vain the schemes of human framing :
This alone is own'd of God.

'Tis the gospel Points to heav'n and shows the road. 152. HYMN LIX. C. M. 1 ALL hail the pow'r of Jesu's name !

0 Let angels prostrate fall ; Bring forth the royal diadem,

And crown him Lord of all:
2 O that with yonder sacred throng,

We at his feet may fall!
There join the everlasting song;

And crown him Lord of all.

1 Humbly at thy feet we fall; See, we come thy face to seek;

Deign, 0 deign to hear our call! 2 Jesus, thou didst shed thy blood!

On this rock our hope we raise;
Thou hast brought us nigh to God;

Thine the work, and thine the praise. 154. HYMN LXI. L. M.

Evening Hymn. 1 GLORY to thee, my God, this night,

For all the blessings of the light: · Keep me, O keep me, King of kings, . Under thine own almighty wings. 2 Forgive me, Lord, for thy dear Son,

The ills which I this day have done;
That with the world, myself, and thee,

I ere I sleep at peace may be.
3 Teach me to live, that I may dread

The grave as little as my bed :
Teach me to die, that so I may

With joy behold the judgment day. 4 O may my soul on thee repose,

And with sweet sleep mine eyelids close ;
Sleep, that may me more active make,
To serve my God when I awake.

5 If wakeful in the night I lie,

My soul with heav'nly thoughts supply; Let no ill dreams disturb my rest,

No pow’rs of darkness me molest. 6 Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;

Praise him, all creatures here below;
Praise him above, angelic host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

This day shew'd

While I sleep,

Safely keep Me, with all thy power. 4 And, whene'r in death I slumber,

Let me rise
