HYMN 245. P. M. 1
BROTHER, thou art before us gone, and thy Where tears are wiped from every eye, and sor.
row is unknown; From the burden of the flesh, and from care and
fear releas'd, Where the wicked cease from troubling, and the
weary are at rest. 2 The toilsome way thou'st travellid o'er, and
borne the heavy load, But Christ has taught thy languid feet to reach
his blest abode; Thou'rt sleeping now, like Lazarus, upon his
Father's breast, Where the wicked cease from troubling, and the
weary are at rest. 3 Sin can never taint thee now, nor doubt thy faith
assail, Nor thy meek trust in Jesus Christ, and the Holy
Spirit fail; And there thou’rt sure to meet the good, whom
on earth thou loved'st best, Where the wicked cease from troubling, and the
weary are at rest. 4 “ Earth to earth," and “dust to dust,” the
solemn priest hath said, So we lay the turf above thee now, and seal
thy narrow bed : But thy spirit, brother, soars away among the
faithful blest, Where the wicked cease from troubling, and the
weary are at rest. 5 And when the Lord shall summon us, whom
thou hast left behind, May we, untainted by the world, as sure'a wel
come find; May each, like thee, depart in peace, to be a
glorious guest, Where the wicked cease from troubling, and the
weary are at rest.

HYMN 246. L. M VHE schools of scribes, and courts of kings, Chooses the weak and foolish things,
His truth and grace to testify: Plain siinple men, his call endues
With power and wisdom from above And such he still vouchsafes to use, Who nothing know but Jesu's love.
HYMN 247. P. M. 1 THE THE great God of love, now hath shined from

And we all are united in one.
The members of Christ are all one ?
storm. Ever singing the Impartial Song. 3 Thus joined in one, the good race we will run,
Pressing onward in faith, without fear ;
And never will till the gospel they hear. 4 The Spirit of God now hath taught us the road,
And the comforter leads us along;
And inspires with the Impartial Song. 5 We'll mount on the wing, and with ardour we'll
sing Hallelujahs to God and the Lamb; With rapture we'll sound, o'er [mmanuel's
Join'd with seraphs in mansions above,

Toward heaven, our glorious home;
HYMN 248. L. M. 1 WHEN swelling Jordan o'er us rolls,
Should Christ his lovely presence hide, Will it not overwhelm our souls,
Before we reach the Canaan side ? 2 Who knows how deep the food may be,
When we our awful summons hear; Or what dark prospect we may see,
When his black banners death shall rear ? 3 Well, should the tyrant death display
His fiercest form when we pass o'er, Our skilful guide knows all the way,
From Jordan's brink, to Canaan's shore. 4 Yes, the Redeemer once was dead!
And, when he pass d the gloomy grave, Death's blackest waves rolld o'er bis head,
That we might know his power to save. 5 Jesus has conquered death for us,
When his dark mansions he pass'd through: He to a blessing turnd the curse, And we shall triumph o'er him too.

Thy kingdom's preparing above;
With joys that can never remove. 2 O envy not those who aspire
Ja splendor and honor to live;
Thy portion will be to receive.
No longer for trifles now care ;

HYMN 250. C. M. 1 THERE is a fountain fill'd with biood,
Drawn from Emmanuel's veins:
Lose all their guilty stains. 2 The dying thief rejoic d to see
That fountain in his day;
Wash'd all my sins away.
Shall never lose its pow'K
Be sav'd, to sin no more.
Thy flowing wounds supply,
And shall be till I die.
I'll sing thy pow'r to save,
Lies silent in the grave.
(Unworthy though I be,)
A golien harp for me!
And forin'd by power divine;
No other name hut thine.

Hallelujah. 1 HARK.the song of Jubilee;
Loud as mighty thunders roar, Or the fulness of the sea,
\Vhen it breaks upon the shore; Hallelujah! for the Lord,
God omnipotent, shall reign;
Hallelujah! let the word
Echo round the earth and main. 2 Hallelujah!-hark! the sound,
From the centre to the skies, Wakes above, beneath, around,
All creation's harmonies: See Jehovah's banners furl'd
Sheathed his sword: He speaks-- 'tis done, And the kingdoms of this world
Are the kingdoms of his Son. 3 He shall reign from pole to pole
With illimitable sway;
Yonder heavens have pass'd away:
Man's last enemy snall fall, Hallelujah! Christ is God, God in Christ, is all in all.
HYMN 252. S. M. The Church militant learning the Church triump
Around the eternal throne,
A multitude unknown.
To day the young, the old,
One shepherd and one fold.
On earth the pilgrim throng, Yet learn we in our low estate,
The church triumphant's sons 4 Worthy the Lamb for sinners slain,
Cry the redeem'd above, Blessing and honour to obtain,
And everlasting love.
Who died our souls to save;
Thy victory, O Grave?
