On the dear volume of thy book;

Be lost, and vanish in the wind;
HYMN 3, C. M.
The Holy Scriptures. 1L
ADEN with guilt, and full of fears,
I fly to thee, my Lord!.
But in thy written word.
Does all my grief assuage;
Almost in every page.
To quench my thirst of sin
No danger dwells therein.
Where wit and reason fail ;-
Through all this gloomy vale.
My roving feet command :
That leads to thy right hand,
HYMN 4, L. M. 4
A Saviour seen in the Scriptures.
To thee its grateful tribute bring; mp My knee, with humble homage, bow,
My tongue perform its solemn vow. mf 2 All nature sings thy boundless love,
In worlds below, and worlds above;
3 There, what delightful truths I read!
There, I behold the Saviour bleed: mf His name salutes my listening ear, Revives my heart, and checks my
fear. тр 4 There, Jesus bids my sorrows cease,
And gives my lab'ring conscience peace;
And points to mansions in the sky. mf 5 For love like this, Oh ! let my song,
Through endless years, thy praise prolong;

A brighter world beyond the skies;
Here, shines the light which guides our way f Fromi earth to realms of endless day.

To read and mark thy holy word,
And by its holy precepts live.
Close to my heart, and near mine eye,
HYMN 7, L. M.
1 LET everlasting glories crown
u Thy head, my Saviour, and my Lord! Thy hands have brought salvation down,
And writ the blessings in thy word.
Some solid ground to rest upon;
Till we apply to Christ alone.
How wise and holy thy commands !
How firm our hope and comfort stands! 4. Should all the forms that men devise
Assault my faith, with treacherous art, I'd call them vanity and lies,
And bind the gospel to my heart.
HYMN 8, L. M.
The Power of Truth.
Sent to the nations from above;

Let sinners gaze, and hate me too;
HYMN 9, L. M.

Throughout the world's extended frame,

And trace creation's wonders o'er!
Bow down before him and adore.

All nature joins to teach thy praise,
And bid my soul adore.
Thy radiant footsteps shine;
And speak their source divine. 3 On me thy providence hath shone doz With gentle, smiling rays;
Oh! let my lips and life make known
Thy goodness and thy praise.
Oh! teach me to improve
Thy gifts with ever-grateful heart, mf And crown them with thy love.

HE Lord Jehovah reigns ;
His throne is built on high;
Are light and majesty:
No mortal eye can bear the sight.
Keep the wide world in awe;
To guard his holy law:
His truth confirms and seals the grace.
Surprising wisdom shines;
His great decrees-his sovereign will.
Of glory condescend, -
My Father and my Friend ?
I love his name,--I love his word; f" Join, all my powers! and praise the Lord.

And starred with sparkling gold.
And strike the gazing sight,
With terror and delight.
Shine through the worlds abroad;
