THIRD PART. L. M. Alfreton. 10 GOD, thou art my God alone;
Early to thee my soul shall cry,
Å thirsty land, whose springs are dry.
When I remember on my bed,
Thy guardian wings are round my head. 3 Better than life itself, thy love,
Dearer than all beside to me;
Or what on earth, compared with thee? s 4 Praise with my heart-my mind-my voice,
For all thy mercy I will give;
My tongue shall bless thee while I live.
63 FOURTH PART. C. M. Lanesboro'. 1 EARLY, my God, without delay,
I haste to seek thy face;
Without thy cheering grace.
Beneath a burning sky,
And they must drink-or die.
Through all thy temple shine-
That vision so divine.
Can my best passions move,
As thy forgiving love.
I'll bless my God and king;
And tune my lips to sing.
63 FIFTH PART. C. M. Nottingham. 111 'TWAS in the watches of the night,
I thought upon thy power;
Amid the darkest hour.
My soul arose on high;
Bring thy salvation nigh.
I walk the heavenly road;
While I commune with God.
The shadow of thy wing;
And I thy praises sing.
63 Sixth PART. S. M. Shirland. 1 MY God, permit my tongue
This joy, to call thee mine;
To taste thy love divine.
No relish can afford;
To serve and please the Lord.
I call my God to mind;
And all thy dealings kind.
To thee my spirit flies;
My cheerful hope relies.
My soul in safety keeps;
65 FIRST PART. L. M. Winchelsea
Worship of God in his Temple.
In Zion waits—thy chosen seat:
And there our zealous vows complete. p 2 O thou, who to our humble prayer
Didst always bend thy listening ear,
And at thy gracious throne appear.
Within thy heavenly dwelling lives;
The vast delight thy temple gives.
65 SECOND Part. L. M. Winchester. mf 1 THE praise of Zion waits for thee,
Great God--and praise becomes thy house; There shall thy saints thy glory see,
And there perform their public vows.
To save when humble sinners pray ;-
And every yielding heart obey.
To Zion's hill--and own their Lord;
Shall see the Saviour's name adored.
65 THIRD PART. L. M. Duke Street.
Goodness of God in the Seasons. 111 ON God the race of man depends,
Far as the earth's remotest ends;
Smiles in the east, and leads the day.
The morn and evening both rejoice
3 The desert grows a fruitful field;
Abundant food the valleys yield;
And neighboring hills repeat their joys.
65 Fourth PART. C. M. Nottingham.
He makes the earth his care;
And bids the grass appear.
Heaven, earth, and air are thine;
The author is divine.
Perinit the corn to spring ;
And all the laborers sing.
How bounteous are thy ways!
And shepherds shout thy praise.
FIFTH PART. C. M. Litchfield.
Worship of God in his Temple.
There shall our vows be paid ;
All flesh shall seek thine aid.
But pardoning grace is thine,
To conquer every sin.
To bring them near thy face ;
To feast upon thy grace.
4 In answering what thy church requests,
Thy truth and terror shine;
Fulfil thy kind design.
The Lord is good and just;
And make thy name their trust.
FIRST PART. L. M. Appleton.
Praise to Christ. 1111 JESUS demands the voice of joy,
Loud through the land let triumph ring; His honors should your songs employ,
Let glorious praises hail the king. 2 Shout to the Lord-adoring own,
Thy works thy wondrous might disclose, Thine arm victorious power has shown;
Thus did thy cross confound thy foes !
All nations shall its blessings prove;
To sing thy power, and praise thy love.
People and lands, rehearse his name:
Let every tongue his praise proclaim.
66 SECOND PART. C. M. Marlono.
Praise to the Creator.
To God their voices raise ;
And spread his glorious praise.
In all thy works art thou!
Shall all be forced to bow,
