He, who God's pure law fulfilled,

Jesus, the incarnate Word;
He, whose truth with blood was sealed;

He is heaven's all-glorious Lord.”
3 “ Who shall to this blest abode

Follow in the Saviour's train ?"
“They, who in his cleansing blood

Wash away each guilty stain:
They, whose daily actions prove

Steadfast faith, and holy fear,
Fervent zeal, and grateful love ;-

They shall dwell forever here."

Prayer for Divine Guidance and Pardon.
Aff 1 SHOW me, O Lord, thy sacred way,

Thy truths to me relate;
For thou art God, whom I obey ;

On thee I daily wait.

The errors of my youth;
But let thy mercy help afford,

According to thy truth.

Who have despised thy word;
And for thy name and mercy's sake,

Thy pardoning love afford.

Preserve me, Lord, from shame;
For I have placed my hope in thee,

And trusted in thy name.

SECOND PART. S. M. Watchman 1 I LIFT my soul to God;

My trust is in his name:

Still triumph in my shame.

Till evening shades arise,
For thy salvation, Lord, I wait,

With ever-longing eyes.

3 Remember all thy grace,

And lead me in thy truth;
Forgive the sins of riper days,

And follies of my youth.

The meek shall learn his ways;
And every humble sinner find

The blessings of his grace.

And graciously continue still,

As thou wert ever, kind.

Be blotted out by thee;
And, for thy wondrous goodness' sake,

In mercy think on me. mf 4 His mercy, and his truth,

In bringing wandering sinners home,
And teaching them his ways.

FIFTH PART. S. M.
1 WHERE shall the man be found,

That fears ť offend his God,
That loves the gospel's joyful sound,

And trembles at the rod?
2 The Lord shall make him know

The secrets of his heart,
The wonders of his covenant show,

And all his love impart.
3 The dealings of his power

Are truth and mercy still,
With such as keep his covenant sure,

And love to do his will.

Before their Maker's face,
mf Their seed shall taste the promises

In their extensive grace.

Conscious Integrity.
I JUDGE me, O Lord_and prove my ways;

And try my reins-and try my heart:
My faith upon thy promise stays,

Nor from thy law my feet depart. 2 Among thy saints will I appear

Arrayed in robes of innocence;
But, when I stand before thy bar,

The blood of Christ is my defence. mf3 I love thy habitation, Lord,

The temple, where thine honors dwell;
There shall I hear thy holy word,

And there thy works of wonder tell.

With men of treachery and blood;
Since I my days on earth have past

Among the saints-and near my God. 26

SECOND PART. C. M. Dundee
Delight in the Presence and Worship of God.
1 WE love thy holy temple, Lord,

For there thou deign'st to dwell ;
And there the heralds of thy word

Of all thy mercies tell.
P 2 There, in thy pure and cleansing fount,

Washed from each guilty stain, ç

Our souls on wings of faith shall mount

To heaven's eternal fane.
Af 3 Around thine altar will we kneel

In penitence sincere,
A Saviour's inercy deeply feel,

And words of pardon hear ;-
< 4 Or, mingling with the choral throng,

Our joyful voices raise,
And pour the full, melodious song,

In notes of grateful praise. 26 THIRD Part. 7s. Pleyel's Hymn. Af 1 SEARCH my heart,--my actions prove,

Try my thoughts, as they arise ;
For thy kindness and thy love

Ever are before my eyes.
mf 2 I have loved the hallowed place,

Where thine honor doth abide;
To the temple of thy grace,

Lord, my erring footsteps guide! 3 Gather not my soul with those,

Who their deeds of blood pursue ;
Who, thy justice to oppose,

Hold the tempting bribe to view.
4 Keep my soul from all offence ;

All my supplications hear;
As I walk in innocence,

Let me, Lord, thy mercy share.

mf 5 Thou hast placed my foot aright,

Therefore I my voice will raise,
With thy saints—before thy sight,

In unceasing hymns of praise.

FIRST PART. C. M. Stephens God resorted to in Trouble and Desertion. 11 THE Lord of glory is my light,

And my salvation too;,
God is my strength-nor will I fear

What all my foes can do.
2 One privilege my heart desires -

Oh! grant me mine abode
Among the churches of thy saints,

The temples of my God!
mf 3 There shall I offer my requests,

And see thy glory still;
Shall hear thy messages of love,

And learn thy holy will.
- 4 When troubles rise, and storms appear,

There may his children hide;
God has a strong pavilion, where

He makes my soul abide.
f '5 Now shall my head be lifted high

Above my foes around,
And songs of joy and victory

Within thy temple sound.

SECOND PART. C. M. Patmos. 1 SOON as I heard

my
Father

say,
“ Ye children, seek my grace;'
My heart replied without delay,

“ I'll seek my Father's face.”
P 2 Let not thy face be hid from me,

Nor frown my soul away;
God of my life, I fly to thee,

In each distressing day.
3 Should friends and kindred, near and dear,

Leave me to want, or die,
My God will make my life his care,

And all my need supply.
