3 God of Jacob, high and glorious !

Let thy people see thy power;
Let the gospel be victorious,

Through the world for evermore;
Then shall idols
Perish, while thy saints adore.

HYMN 571, L. M. 571

Success anticipated. 1 EHOLD th' expected time draw near,

' Behold the wilderness assume dol The beauteous tints of Eden's bloom !

2 Events with prophecies conspire,

To raise our faith, our zeal to fire:
The ripening fields, already white,

Present a harvest to the sight.

3 The untaught heathen waits to know mf The joy the gospel will bestow;

The exiled captive, to receive mf The freedom Jesus has to give.

4 Come, let us, with a grateful heart,

In the blest labor share a part;
Our prayers and offerings gladly bring,
To aid the triumphs of our King.

HYMN 572, C. M. 572

Through the wide world, shall run;
And everlasting ages sing
The triumph thou hast won.

HYMN 573, H. M. 573

And silence, left to die!

With Christ's unfolding tomb, mf Your portals open fly:

Rise with your Lord-he sets you free;

It is the year of jubilee.
3 Ye, who yourselves have sold

For debts to justice due,
Ransomed—but not with gold !

He gave himself for you:
The blood of Christ hath made you free;

It is the year of jubilee.

O'er earth and ocean, hear mf An angel's voice proclaim

The Lord's accepted year:
Let Jacob rise-be Israel free;
It is the year of jubilee.

Let my prayer ascend on high ; mt God of mercy! God of power !

For the sake of Christ, thy Son.

While the shades of night depart,

Now o'er all my steps preside,
And for all my wants provide.

Morning Thanks. 1

that dost my life prolong!
Kindly aid my morning song ;
Thankful, from my couch I rise,

To the God that rules the skies.
2 Thou didst hear my evening cry;

Thy preserving hand was nigh;

Peaceful slumbers thou hast shed,

Grateful to my weary head.
3 Thou hast kept me through the night,

'T was thy hand restored the light;
Lord! thy mercies still are new,

Plenteous, as the morning dew.

4 Still my feet are prone to stray, -
Oh! preserve me through the day;
Dangers every where abound,
Sins and snares beset me round.

On my soul, thy beams display;
Sweeter than the smiling morn,
Let thy cheering light return.

Morning Prayer Meeting.
1 HOW.sweet the melting lay,

That breaks upon the ear,
When, at the hour of rising day,

Christians unite in prayer! тр 2 The breezes waft their cries,

Up to Jehovah's throne;
He listens to their bursting sighs,

And sends his blessings down.
3 So Jesus rose to pray,

Before the morning light; тр Once on the chilling mount did stay,

And wrestle all the night. f 4 Glory to God on high,

Who sends his blessings down,
To rescue souls condemned to die,

And make his people one.

HYMN 581, s. M. 581

Morning Meditations. f


A WAKE, my drowsy soul!
Awake, my active powers renewed !

To run the heavenly race.
2 See-how the rising sun

Pursues his shining way;
And wide proclaims his Maker's praise,

With every brightening ray!
8 Thus would my rising soul

Her heavenly Parent sing;
And to her great Original

Her humble tribute bring.
P 4 Serene, I laid ine down

Beneath his guardian care;
I slept, and woke; and still I found

My kind Preserver near.
