Whose goodness shall send us bread rom the sky; On earth thou shalt give us a taste of thy love, And shortly receive us to banquet above.

rain descends, the tempests rise !
My soul, his inajesty adore! Jehovah's voice sounds through the skies,
While lightnings flash and thunders roar. 2 I sit becalm'd while others fear;
The God of Thunder is my all; It is my Father's voice I hear,
Nor shall I by his thunder fall. 3 No: while his lightnings flash around,
Although the earth's foundation move, I stand secure on faith's firm ground,
I rest in his unchanging love.
Should he the skies this moment rend;

Our dear Redeemer dwells.
In countless armies shine;
They offer songs divine.
Whose unexampled love
And royalties above."
They did his steps attend; oft wond'ring how, or where, at last,
This mystic scene would end. They saw his heart transfix'd with wounds
With love and grief run o'er,
They saw him break the bars of death,
Which none e'er brake before.
To bear him to his throne :
“The glorious work is done."
HYMN 365. C. M. To be sung on clearing the ground, and erecting the
Stand for a Camp-Meeting. 1
THW sacred spot, bou Lord to thee,
Display'd in mercy here.
O Lord, our hearts prepare ;
Lord, spread thy glory there.
As we the Stand erect;
And souls to thee direct.
With clouds of glory crown?
Thus here, O Lord, come down.
Thy glory here reveal,
Thy sacred influence feel.
Encamp by night and day;
HYMN 366. C. M.
Camp-Meeting a pleasant sight. 1 'HW pleasant are these tents, O Lord, To speak and hear thy blessed word
And worship at thy feet
2 From distant places they have come,
And sweetly here agree;
To meet, O Lord, with thee.
They talk thy mercies o'er,
Thy goodness they adore.
And pledge their faithful vows; While God to them his love imparts,
As if in his own house.
Which in each bosom glows;
And on thy grace repose.
An evidence of grace;

Breaking up of Camp-Meeting.
And raise the cheerful song, 2 Praise God, whose mercies brought you here,
Whose goodness keeps you still ; Whose grace with joy your souls can cheer,
Whose power subdues your will. 3 Praise him for what your ears have heard,
For what your eyes have seen ; Praise him for what has here occurr'd,
For all you feel within. 4 Improve the strength you here have gain'd
To do his holy will:
To love and serve him still.
You serv'd your God for nought;
But grow in grace from day to day,
As you have here been taught. 6 To friends and neighbours all around,
O let your graces sbine; In ways of holiness abound,
And live a life divine.
May Jesus with you dwell;
“So now, dear friends, farewell.” 8 Farewell, and to your homes repair,
And as you pass along;

In this pious sweet employ!

The Rainbow. 1 H Weerandly the bow stretches over the sky Reflecting its beauties to every eye,
And shows us a reconcil'd face. 2 The dark clouds arise to obscure the bright day
And scatter their horrors around;
That judgments will surely abound.
Their fears are dispellid from the mind,

This heavenly token affords them delight,
They to thunders and clouds are resign'd; 4 'Tis thus, when the storms of adversity roll,
Our fears are excited and rise,
And Jesus enlightens our eyes. 5 Then justice, and mercy, and truth are combin'd,
In covenant goodness and love,
HYMN 370. P. M.
The firmament displays thy skill;
Tempest and calm thy word fulfil; Day unto day doth utter speech,
And night to night thy knowledge teach. 2 Though voice nor sound inform the ear,
Well-known the language of their song,
Led by the silent moon along,
Thy beauty beams on every eye.
Comes like a bridegroom from his bower, And, like a giant, glad to run
His bright career with speed and power; -Thy flaming messenger, to dart
Life through the depth of Nature's heart. 4 While these transporting visions shine
Along the path of Providence,
Thy word reveals, transcending sense ;
HYMN 371. P. M. 1 OD is my strong salvation,
? In darkness and temptation,
My light, my help is near:
