Whose goodness shall send us bread from the sky;
HYMN 363. L. M.
My soul, his inajesty adore!
While lightnings flash and thunders roar. % 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 rarth's foundation move, I stand secure a faith's firm ground,
I rest in his unchanging love. 4 Nothing shall fright my soul from God,
Should he the skies this moment rend; lle is my only safe abode, My Rock, my Refuge, and my Friend.

Our dear Redeemer dwells.
In countless armies shine;
They offer songs divine.

And royalties above."
They did his steps attend;
This mystic scene would end.
With love and grief run o'er,
They saw him break the bars of death,
Which none e'er brake before. 6 They brought his chariot from above,
To bear him to his throne: Clapp'd their triumphant wings, and cried “The glorious work is done."

Stand for a Camp-Meeting. 1 THIS sacred spot, O Lord, to thee,
We consecrate by prayer;
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.

Thy sacred influence feel.

And as you pass along,
And raise the cheerful song. 2 Praise God, whose mercies brought you here,
Whose goodness keeps you still;
Whose power subdues your will. 3 Praise him for what your ears have heard,
For what your eyes have seen ;
For all you feel within. 4 Improve the strength you here have gain'd
To do his holy will:

As you have here been taught. 6 To friends and neighbours all around
O let your graces shine; In ways of holiness abound,
And live a life divine.

Make the place with praises ring. 2 Who can tell the heavenly pleasure,
In this pious sweet employ!

The Rainbowo. 1 Ho
row grandly the bow stretches over the sky
The token of covenant grace, 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; The fearful, amazed, are ready to say,
That judgments will surely abound. 3 But when they behold this beautiful sight,
Their fears are dispell'd 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. 1
TIV glory, Lord, the heavens declare,
Tempest and calin thy word fulfil;
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. & While these transporting visions shine
Along the path of Providence,
Thy word reveals, transcending sense;
HYMN 371. P. M.
My light, my help is near.
