1200 There shall be no night there. -Rev. 21. 25. 1 THERE is no night in heaven;
In that blest world above
For work itself is love.
2 There is no grief in heaven;
For life is one glad day:
Which all have passed away. 3 There is no sin in heaven;
Behold that blessed throng-
All holy is their song!
For they who gain that shore
And they can die no more.

O Father, Son, and Holy Ghost !
Among Thy seed, Thy chosen host;
Thy Spirit now shall dwell within.
To be henceforth his child and heir,
The fruit of all His sorrows share;
When darkest clouds around I see. 3 And I have vowed to fear and love Thee,
And to obey, Thee, Lord, alone
And dared to pledge myself Thy own,
And war with evil to the death.
To Thee I offer now the whole ;
Take full possession of my soul ;
Serve any will but Thine alone.
O Father, Son and Holy Ghost !
But keep me faithful to Thine altar,
Till Thou shall call me from my post ;

them.-Luke 24. 15. 1 FALet my religious hours alone ;
JAR from my thoughts, vain world, begone, Fain would my eyes my Saviour see ;
I wait a visit, Lord, from Thee.
And kindles with a pure desire :
And feed my soul with heavenly love. 3 The trees of life immortal stand
In fragrant rows at Thy right hand :
Rivers of bliss perpetual glide.
And spread the table of Thy grace ;
And cheer my heart with sacred wine.
How sweet Thy entertainments are !
Redeeming grace, and dying love.
In Thee thy Father's glories shine:

L.M. 1203 The table of the Lord.—Mal. 1. 12. 1 TY God, and is Thy table spread ?
Thither be all Thy children led,
And let them all its sweetness know.
Rich banquet of His flesh and blood;
That sacred stream, that heavenly food.
Before unwilling hearts displayed ?
forbid the children's bread ?
And furnished well with joyful guests ;
That here its sacred pledges tastes.
With hearts inflamed let all attend;
The pleasure or the profit end.

1 Cor. 11. 25.
Here we attend Thy dying feast,
2 Our faith adores Thy bleeding love,
And trusts for life in One that died;
From a Redeemer crucified.
And fling their scandals on Thy cause ;
And make our triumphs in His Cross. 4 With joy we tell the scoffing age,
He that was dead has left His tomb;

1 TESUS, to Thy table led,
With the true and living Bread! 2 While upon Thy Cross we gaze,
Mourning o'er our sinful ways,
Turn our sadness into praise ! 3 From the bonds of sin release,
Weak and wavering faith increase,
Grant us, Lamb of God, Thy peace! 4 Draw us to Thy wounded side
Whence there flows the healing tide,
There our sins and sorrows hide.
Till around Thy throne we stand
