HYMN 288. L. M.
thine to know
When frailty errs, and when we sin. 2 Who, among men, high Lord of all, Thy servants to his bar
call ? Decide of heresy, and sbake
A brother o'er the flaming lake ?
Or worship by another's creed?
We humbly seek and use our own. 4 If wrong, forgive ; accept, if right,
Whilst faithful we obey our light;
To follow, as to learn, thy will. 5 Wheo shall our happy eyes
behold Thy people, fashion'd in thy mould ? And charity our lineage prove, Deriv'd from thee, O God of love ?
HYMN 289. L. M.
Christ our Example.
Such let our conversation be;
Wisdom and meek simplicity.
Aud tempt our thoughts or tongues to strife,
Bright Pattern of the Christian life. 3 O how benevolent and kind !
How mild, how ready to forgive !
4 To do his heavenly Father's will
Was his employment and delight ;
The labours of his life were love ;
By his example let us move.
How frail, how apt to turn aside !
We ask thy spirit for our guide. 7 Thy fair example may we trace,
To teach us what we ought to be;
HYMN 290. C. M.
The New Creation. ATTEND, whilst God's exalted Son,
Doth his own glories shew ; “Behold I sit upon my throne,
Creating all things new !
And the first Adam dies ;
See the new world arise !
To the new heavens I make;
My glories shall partake.”
Froin old state of sin ; O make my soul alive to thee, Create
new pow'rs within ! 5 Renew my eyes, and forın my ears,
heart afresh ;
Give me new passions, joys and fears,
And turn the stone to Alesb.
From sin, and earth, and hell,
I would forever dwell.
HYMN 291. L. M.
Glory in the Cross.
Here we atteod thy dying feast;
And thy own Aesh feeds ev'ry guest. 2 Our faith adores thy bleeding love,
And trusts for life in One that died ;
From a Redeemer crucified.
And fling its scandals on the cause ;
And make our triumph in his cross. 4 With joy, we tell the scoffing age,
He that was dead has left his tomb;

Awake my soul, or thou art lost! 2 See bow rebellious passions rage,
And fierce desires, and lusts engage ;
3 I tread upon enchanted ground,
Perils and spares beset me round;
But most the traitor in my heart ! 4 O teach thy servant how to wield,
Blest Saviour, thy immortal shield !
Of heavenly truth, and heavenly love. 5 The terror and the charm repel,
The smiles of earth, the frowns of hell ;

Sbake off each slothful band !

At thy approaching dawo,
In the dark va confio'd.
And, midst their sbouts, the Lord ascends. 3 All bail, triumphant Lord !
Heaven with bosanna rings ;
Thy praise responsive sings.
Thro' endless years to live and reign. 4 Gird on, great King, thy sword,
Ascend thy conqu’ring car,
Maintain the glorious war.
5 Make bare thy potent arm,
And wing th' unerring dart,
To each rebellious heart.

The Christian Race.
Let ev'ry trembling thought begone :
And put a cheerful courage on!
And mortal spirits tire and faint,
Who feeds the strength of ev'ry saiat : 3 The mighty God, whose pow'rful hand
Has matchless works of wonder done;
Their everlasting circles run.
Our souls shall drink a rich supply ;
Shall melt away, and droop and die. 5 Swift as an eagle cuts the air,
We'll mount aloft to thine abode;

And wait and worship near tby seat. 2 Lord, in the temple of thy grace,
We bow before thee and adore ;
