5 Sweet the place-exceeding sweet,
Where the saints in glory meet;
Where they see and sing of him. 369
Medfield. Dedham 1 BLEST be the dear, uniting love,
That will not let us part:
We still are one in heart!
Where he appoints we go;
And still his praise we show.
And nothing know beside!
But Jesus crucified!
We're one in mind and heart;
Not life, nor death can part. 370
Wide o'er'all nature spreads abroad;
In every place thy children keep.
Thou dost our lives and souls sustain ;
Thy smiles, thy counsels, and thy care.
And seek our comforts near thy feet;
And guard and guide us still as thine.
Again to pay our thankful vows :
Oh may we meet around thy throne. 371
St. Thomas. Paddington 1 ONCE more, before we part,
Oh bless the Saviour's name;
Adore and praise the same.
2 Lord, in thy grace we came,
That blessing still impart;
In Jesus' name we part.
We'll live, and feed, and grow,
And practise what we know.
Help us to bless thy name:
Ferry. Arlington. 372
Dedication to God.'
To thee our hearts we raise ;
And gladly sing thy praise.
Our sacrifice receive;
To thee ourselves we give.
Shed in our hearts abroad;
And he, with Christ, in God.
In everlasting bands;
With eager hearts and hands.
And seek his favor there;
And offer fervent prayer.
The covenant of his grace;
Its memory e'er efface.
To seek their fathers' God;
Nor e'er forsake the happy path
Dundee. Med field. 374
Joining the Church of Christ.
Before the Lord we speak;
A vow we dare not break,-
Ourselves to Christ we yield;
Or ever quit the field.
But on his grace rely;.
All needful aid supply.
And keep us in thy ways;
Danvers. Nazareth. 375 1 OH happy day, that fixed my choice
On thee, my Saviour, and my God;
And tell its raptures all abroad.
To hiin who merits all my love!
While to his altar now I move.
I am my Lord's, and he is mine:
Rejoiced to own the call divine.
Fixed on this blissful centre, rest-
Here heavenly pleasures fill my breast,
That vow renewed shall daily hear;
And bless in death a bond so dear.
Medway. Danvers 376
A Welcome to Christian Fellowship.
Oh come in Jesus' precious name;
And trust the Saviour does the same.
We'll seek in fellowship to prove,
Together bound by mutual love.
We'll make our joys and sorrows known;
And count a brother's cares our own.
Receive assurance of our love:
S. M. St. Thomas. Hudson. 377
All one in Christ.
The Christian world o'erspread:
Are one in Christ their head.
Let mutual love be found;
With mutual blessings crowned.
Resemble that above;
Mendon. Rothwell. 378
The heavenly Race.
Let every trembling thought be gone;
And put a cheerful courage on.
And mortal spirits tire and faint;
Who feeds the strength of every saint ;
3 The mighty God, whose matchless power
Is ever new, and ever young ;
Their everlasting circles run.
Our souls shall drink a full supply ;
Shall melt awayand droop-and die.
We'll mount aloft to thine abode;
Nor tire arnid the heavenly road. 379
Christmas. Stephens 1 AWAKE, my soul_stretch every nerve,
And press with vigor on:
A bright, immortal crown.
That calls thee from on high;
To thine aspiring eye.
Hold thee in full survey: -
And onward urge thy way.
Have we our race begun;
Monson. Mendon. 380
Christian Warfare and Victory.
And gird the gospel armor on;
Where Jesus thy great Captain's gone.
But hell and sin are vanquished foes ;
sung the triumph when he rose.
Press forward to the heavenly gate ; pli There peace and joy eternal reign,
And glittering robes for conquerors wait.
