HYMN 2. C. M. The Excellence of Scripture. Tim. iii. 16. Rom. xv. 4. FATHER of mercies, in thy word,
What endless glory shines ! For ever be thy name ador'd
For these celestial lines.

And lasting as the mind.
And yields a free repast ; Sublimer sweets ihan nature knows,
Invite the longing taste. 4 Here the Redeemer's welcome voice
Spreads heavenly peace around ; Aod life and everlasting joys
Attend the blissful sound.
My ever dear delight;
And still increasing light.
Be thou for ever near ;
And view my Saviour there. MRS. STEELE.

But He shall reign, with pow'r divine. 5 The world to come, redeem'd from all

To his fair palace in the skies !
