HYMN 237. L. M.
Night. •THEE in the watches of the night, And meditate, with calın delight,
On the dear counsels of thy will? 2 Thy will is my perfection here ;
And s.ghs for this my whole desire;
HYMN 238. C. M.
Before a Journey. 1
at thy call, oh Lord, I go, Thy counsel to fulfil; '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. SAVIOUR, who ready art to hear, Answer my scarcely uttered prayer, And meet me on the way.
HYMN 240. C. M.
After a Journey. ·THOL Lord, hast 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!
By giving thee my heart. 5 Fix my new heart on things above,
And then from strife release :
HYMN 241. C. M.
The sorrowful Pilgrim,
Whose eyes all day o'erflow,
The night for farther woe:
Thy solemn moments spend,
That pain, with life, shall end. 2 My comforts are all blasted,
My comforter is gone;
o that I ne'er had known! The gourd, which soothed my anguish,
Is withered o'er my head,
To sink among the dead. 3 From all I suffer here,
If God my sins forgive, From all I feel, and fear,
I there, redeemed, shall live :
No serpent to deceive me,
No ein to stain my thought,
Where all things are forgot. 4 No Heart distracting passion
Is tHere to break my peace;
And love without excess:
I shall go longer mourn;
The rose without a thorn. 5 In hope of that salvation,
I feel a mament's rest:
Has stole into my breast;
I struggle to be gone,
HYMN 242. P. M.
Fix here thy hope's foundation;
The Rock of thy salvation.
And calm thy perturbation :
The Rock of thy salvation. 3 When earth's prospects fail thee, let it not dis.

HYMN 243. C. M. D.
With glory in his view;
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.
I'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!
Until we meet again,
Above the fiery main;
In presence of the Lamb,
In love's eternal flane,
HYMN 244. L. M.
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 bod
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;
