2 By Thy wisdom, Lord, direct us,
In our childhood be our guide ;
In Thy shelter may we hide.
Sanctify us by Thy grace;
And in heaven we'll sing Thy praise. 42.
The Glory of the Bible. C.M.
of mercies, in Thy Word
For these celestial lines.
Spreads heavenly peace around;
Attend the blissful sound.
And still increase in light,
Be Thou for ever near ;
And view my Saviour there.
C.M. GREAT God! with wonder and with praise
On all Thy works I look ;
But still Thy wisdom, power, and grace,
Shine brightest in Thy Book.
Have much instruction given ;
How I may rise to heaven.
The goodness of the Lord;
In Thy most holy Word.
My sinful soul to save;
Such wondrous tidings have. 44. Instruction from Scripture.
C.M. 1 How shall the young
secure their hearts, And guard their lives from sin ? Thy Word the choicest rules imparts
To keep the conscience clean. 2 When once it enters to the mind,
It spreads such light abroad ;
And raise their thoughts to God. 3 'Tis like the sun, a heavenly light,
That guides us all the day;
4 Thy Word is everlasting truth;
And well support our age.
III. THE LORD'S DAY.
C.M. i This blessed day once more returns,
A day of rest and peace;
We would devoutly cease.
Our noblest powers employ;
For joys without alloy.
To God's own house repair,
In holy praise and prayer.
To fear and serve the Lord,
And love His holy Word. 46.
Sabbath Morning Thoughts. 8.7.
Welcome, is this Holy day!
Says a week has passed away.
Let me think how time is passing.;
Soon the longest life departs ; Nothing human is abiding,
Save the love of human hearts. 2 Father! now one prayer I raise Thee;
Give an humble, grateful heart;
Never from Thy fear depart.
And the world is sunk in shade,
There my treasure will be laid. 47. Sabbath Morning.
C.M. i LORD, in the morning Thou shalt hear,
My voice ascending high;
To Thee lift up my eye.
To plead for all His saints,
Our songs and our complaints.
The wicked shall not stand ;
Nor dwell at Thy right hand. 4 But to Thy house will I resort,
To taste Thy mercies there;
I will frequent Thy holy court,
And worship in Thy fear.
In ways of righteousness;
And plain before my face.
L.M. 1 WHEN to the house of God we go,
To hear His word, and sing His love;
As saints and angels do above.
And praise Him better far than we;
And love Him whom we cannot see.
And watches all our thoughts and ways;
And who sincerely sing His praise.
Who only seem to take a part;
But do not seek Him with the heart.
Nor lose the days our God has given;
