HYMN 377. C. M. 
Thirsting after God.
And parched with thirst extreme,
The cool, refreshing stream, 2 So longs the weary, fainting mind,
Oppressed with sins and woes,
Whence heavenly comfort flows. 3 Thus sweet the consolations are,
The promises impart;
To ease the panting heart.
With ardent, strong desire,
To taste thy grace aspire,
A grateful sacrifice ;
And grant me full supplies.
HYMN 378. L. M. [b or# ]
Patience. 1 PATIENCE! O what a grace divine,
Sent from the God of peace and love, That leans
its Father's hand, As through the wilds of life we rove!
2 By patience we serenely bear
The troubles of our mortal state, And wait, contented, our discharge,
Nor think our glory comes too late. 3 Though we in full sensation feel
The weight, the wounds, our God ordains, We smile amidst our deepest woes,
And triumph in our sharpest pains. 4 O for this grace to aid us on,
And arm with fortitude the breast, Till, life's vain dreams and tumults o'er,
We reach the realms of endless rest.
HYMN 379. C. M. 
Submission to God under Affliction.
Ye busy cares, be still ;
Nor murmur at his will.
Nor dares my guilty fear,
Pronounce his hand severe. 3 To soften every painful stroke,
Indulgent Mercy bends,
His gracious ear attends.
Thou just, and wise, and kind :
And all my soul resigned.
HYMN 380. L. M. 
Meekness. i HAPPY the meek, whose gentle breast,
Clear as the summer's evening ray, Calm as the regions of the blest,
Enjoys on earth celestial day. 2 His heart no broken friendships sting ;
No storms his peaceful tent invade; He rests beneath Jehovah's wing,
Hostile to none, of none afraid. 3 Spirit of grace, all meek and mild,
Inspire our hearts, our souls possess ; Repel each passion, rude and wild,
And bless us, as we aim to bless.
HYMN 381. C. M. 
Our warmest thoughts engage;
In evils to discern;
The latest which we learn.
That moment we remove ;
Devolves on One above,
4 He bids us lay our burthen down
On his almighty hand,
Our weary feet to stand.
HYMN 382. C. M.
C. M. [b or #]
And help me to resign
And make thy pleasure mine. 2 Why should I shrink at thy command,
Whose love forbids my fears ?
That wipes away my tears ? 3 No, let me rather freely yield
What most I prize to thee,
Or wilt withhold, from me.
Thou art engaged to grant ;
'Tis better still to want.
Still bind me to thy sway;
Drives all these thoughts away.
HYMN 383. 8 & 7s. M. [bor #]
Confidence in God.
This blest thought shall joy impart,
That he bears me on his heart. 2 What though all the world are preaching,
Death shall reign forever more ;
That its reign shall soon be o'er. 3 See in Christ all things created ;
This was God's eternal plan;
Sacred Head of every man.
May each soul in concert rise,
Sound his praises to the skies.
HYMN 384. C. M. [#or b ]
Our heavenly Friend is nigh,
eye. 2 Thou canst, when anguish rends the heart,
The secret wo control;
The sickness of the soul.
