HYMN 269. P. M.

Horne. 1 OW sad are the moments when wandering

from God,
And thorny and dark is the dangerous road,
But light is the pathway which leads to the tomb
When cheer'd by the presence of Jesus my home.

Home! home sweet, sweet, home,

When cheer'd by the presence of Jesus my home. 2 Though fading are joys which earth can bestow,

And false is the light which illumes us below;
Though sorrows like clouds hang around us in

gloom,
The beams of his love light me on my way home.
Home! home ! sweet, sweet, home,
The beams of his love light me on my way

home. 3 When the tempest of life has sunk into repose,

And death shall the 'eauties of heaven disclose
With all the redeem d, I o'er it will roam,
And sing hallelujah to Jesus my hone.

Home! home! sweet, sweet, home,
And sing hallelujah to Jesus my home.

HYMN 270. P. M.

Farewell Hymn. 1 VARE ye well, ye favourite few,

But the Lord is with you still,

Fear you not, but fare you well. 2 Fare ye well, ye little flock

Whom the world revile and mock;
Keep the way to endless bliss,

Then you cannot fare amiss. 3 Fare ye well, my Lord's elect,

Trials you must all expect;
From the world the flesh and hell,

But the faithful shall fare well, 4 Fare ye well, ye saints of God,

Wash'd and cleans'd in Jesus 5

[ocr errors]

Strive in goodness to excel,

Live to God and you'll fare well. 5 Fare ye well, ye pious band,

March ye on for Canaan's lard,
Tread on all the powers of hell,

March in faith and you'll fare well. 6 Fare ye well, brave soldiers dear

Crowns of life you all may wear
Christ will all your foes repel,

Fight in faith and you'll fare we" 7 Ye who taste a Saviour's love,

Feel his drawings from above,
Still endeavour to excel,

And you'll finally fare well.
B Fare ye well, poor sinners too,

Jesus Christ still waits for you;
Now repent and 'scape from hell,
Flee to Christ and you'll fare well.
Feeble souls with fears opprest,
Jesus bears you on his breast ;
He will all your foes dispel,

Fear ye not but fare ye well. 10 When a few more storms are o'er,

We shall meet to part nomore;
Meet with Jesus Christ to dwell,
In a world where all fare well.

HYMN 271. P. M. 1

Praising God eternally.

HYMN 272. P. M.
God's patience to Sinners

LORD and am I yet alive,

Not in torinents, not in hell ? Still doth thy good spirit strive, With the chief of sinners dwell ?

Tell it unto sinners, tell,

That I still am out of hell! 2 Yes, I still lift up my eyes,

Will not of thy love despair;
Sti!!, in spite of sin, I rise,
Still I bow to thee in prayer.

Tcil it unto sinners, tell
That I still am out of hell

Oh, the length and breadth of love!

Jesus, Saviour, can it be?
All thy mercies' height I prove,
All the depth is seen in me.

Tell it unto sinners, tell

That I still am out of hell!
Lord, deny me what thou wilt,

All unholy and unclean;
Only ease me of my guilt;
I am nothing else but sin.

Tell it unto sinners, tell

That I still am out of hell! Father, thou dost seem to frown:

To Christ's blood help to fly;
Now me shelter in thy Son;
Jesus, save me, or I die.

Tell it unto sinners, tell
That I still am out of hell!

HYMN 273. P. M.

Prepare ns to receive thy word;
Now let thy voice engage our ear,
And faith be mixed with what we hear;

Now, Lord, thy waiting servants bless,

And cruwu thy gospel with success.
2 Distracting thoughts and cares remove,

And tix our hearts and hopes above:
With food divine may we be fed,
And satisfied with living bread:
Thus, Lord, thy waiting servants bless,

And crown thy gospel with success. 3 To us the sacred word apply

With saving power and energy;
And may we, in thy faith and fear,
Reduce to practice what we hear:

Thus, Lord, thy waiting servants blesk,

And crown thy gospel with success.
Father, in us thy Son reveal;
Teach us to know and do thy will:
Thy saving power and love display,
And guide us to the realms of day:

Thus, Lord, thy waiting servants bless,
And crown the gospel with success.

HYMN 274. P. M.

A warning to Youths. 1 H ye young, ye gay, ye proud,

You must die and wear the shroud Time will rob you of your bloom, * Death will drag you to the tomb;

Then you'll cry, and want to be

Happy in eternity.
2 Will you go to heaven? or hell ?

One you must, and there to dwell:
Christ will come, and quickly too;
I must meet him, so must you;

Then you'll cry, &c.
3 The white throne will soon appear,

All the world must then draw near
Sinners will be driven down
Saints will wear the starry crown.
Sinners, you'll cry, &c.

HYMN 275. P. M.

On Prayer. 1 AVIOUR, give us power to pray

Let not now our waiting heart

From the living God depart.
2 Saviour, give us power to claim

All that's promised in thy name;
Raise us from the grave of sin:

Now the quick’ning work begin. 3 Now the mighty movir.g give;

Let the dead begin to live;
All our doubts remove away;

Give us power to watch and pray. 4 Visit every waiting heart;

Now the life of God impart;
Let us now together sing;

Nearer now thy blessing bring. 5 Let the blind begin to see ;

Let the captive soul be free;
