THIRD PART. L. M. Alfreton. 10 GOD, thou art my God alone;

Early to thee my soul shall cry,
A pilgrim in a land unknown,

Å thirsty land, whose springs are dry.
2 Thee, in the watches of the night,

When I remember on my bed,
Thy presence makes the darkness light,

Thy guardian wings are round my head. 3 Better than life itself, thy love,

Dearer than all beside to me;
For, whom have I in heaven above,

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 soul shall still in God rejoice,

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;
My thirsty spirit faints away,

Without thy clieering grace.
2 So pilgrims on the scorching sand,

Beneath a burning sky,
Long for a cooling stream at hand,

And they must drink-or die.
3 I've seen thy glory and thy power

Through all thy temple shine-
My God, repeat that heavenly hour,

That vision so divine.
4 Not life itself-with all its joys,

Can my best passions move,
Or raise so high my cheerful voice,

As thy forgiving love.
5 Thus, till my last expiring day,

I'll bless my God and king;
Thus will I lift

And tune my lips to sing.

63 Fifth PART. C. M. Nottingham.
11 'TWAS in the watches of the night,

I thought upon thy power;
I kept thy lovely face in sight,

Amid the darkest hour.
2 While I lay resting on my bed,

My soul arose on high;
My God, my life, my hope, I said,

Bring thy salvation nigh.
3 I strive to mount thy holy hill,

I walk the heavenly road;
Thy glories all my spirit fill,

While I commune with God.
4 Thy mercy stretches o'er my head

The shadow of thy wing;
My heart rejoices in thine aid,

And I thy praises sing.



63 Sixth PART. S. M. Shirland.
1 MY God, permit my tongue

This joy, to call thee mine;
And let my early cries prevail

To taste thy love divine.
2 For life, without thy love,

No relish can afford;
No joy can be compared with this,

To serve and please the Lord.
3 In wakeful hours of night,

I call my God to mind;
I think how wise thy counsels are,

And all thy dealings kind.
4 Since thou hast been my help,

To thee my spirit flies;
And on thy watchful providence

My cheerful hope relies.
5 The shadow of thy wings

My soul in safety keeps;
I follow where my Father leads,
And he supports my steps.

Smiles in the east, and leads the day.

To see the earth made soft with showers,
Laden with fruit, and dressed in flowers.

Abundant food the valleys yield;
The plains shall shout with cheerful voice,

And neighboring hills repeat their joys.

O’er every field thy glories shine;
Through every month thy gifts appear :
Great God, thy goodness crowns the year.

Let every tongue his praise proclaim.
