HYMN 237. L. M.
Night. "THEE in the watches of the night,
Do I not, Lord, remember still, And meditate, with calın delight,
On the dear counsels of thy will ? 2 Thy will is my perfection here ; ;
And saghs for this my whole desire ;
HYMN 233. C. M.
Before a Journey. 1 FORTH at they calls
, Gh. Lord, I go, 'Tis all my business here below
Father, to do thy will. 2 To do thy will while here I make
My short unfix'd abode; An everlasting home I seek,
A city built by God.
The land of proinised ease,
This howling wilderness!
For whom alone I sigh ;
HYMN 239. C. M.
On a Journey. SAXLOR, who ready art to hear, Answer my scarcely uttered prayer, And meet me on the way.
HYMN 240. C. M.
After a Journey. 1
THO: Sond, bast blessed my going out,
Compass my weakness round about,
And keep me safe from sin.
Thy tabernacle spread;
And guard my naked head. 3 To thee for refuge may I run,
From sin's alluring snare,
And watching unto prayer. 4 O that I never, never more
Might from thy ways depart! Here let me give my wanderings o'er
By giving thee my heart.
And then from strife release :
HYMN 241. C. M.
The sorrowful Pilgrim.
Whose eyes all day o'erflow,
The night for farther wee:
Thy solemn moments spend,
That pain, with life, shall end.
My comforter is gone;
o that I ne'er had known!
Is withered o'er my head,
To sink among the dead.
If God my sins forgive,
I there, redeemed, shall live:
No serpent to deceive me,
No sin to stain my thought, No loss, or wrong io grieve me,
Where all things are forgot. 4 No heart-distracting passion
Is there to break my peace; But joy without cessation,
And love without excess : Of Paradise secure,
I shall no longer inourn; The bliss is full and sure,
The rose wiihout a thorn. 5 In hope of that salvation,
I feel a moment's rest: The calm of expectation
Has stole into my breast;
I struggle to be gone,

And bids the world adieu ;
And loath to let him go;
And leaves them all below!
To cross the swelling flood ?
And see your smiling God:
Attract my soul above;
When perfected in love.
l'm bound to meet you there;
Be bold, and never fear:
(Your Captain is in view;)
I hope to meet with you.
Now let the echo fly;
While they repeat the song above,
Through armies in the sky.
Who died for you and me!
And shout eternally.
Until we meet again,
Above the fiery main;
In presence of the Lamb,
HYMN 214. L. M. 1
Bleeding to death for wretched me, Satan and sin no more can move,
For I am all transform'd to love. 2 His thorns and nails pierce through my heart;
In every groan I bear a part;
But see! he bows his head and dies!
Wounded, and dead, and bathed in-bl od
The well of endless life is here.
I drink, yet still my thirst remains:
Can satisfy the thirst of love.
Lord, more and more thy love reveal;
The grace and glory of thy name.
Revives my heart, and charms my ear;
