TERNAL beam of light divine,
Thro' earth beneath and heaven above : 2 Jesus, the weary wanderer's rest,
Give me thy easy yoke to bear; With steadfast patience arm my breast,
With spotless love, and lowly fear. 3 Thankful I take the cup from thee,
Prepared and mingled by thy skill : Though bitter to the taste it be,
Powerful the wounded soul to heal. 4 Be thou, O Rock of ages, nigh!
So shall each murm’ring thought be gone; And grief, and fear, and care shall fly,
As clouds before the mid-day sun. 5 Speak to my warring passions, “ Peace !"
Say to my trembling heart, “Be still !" Thy power my strength and fortress is,
For all things serve thy sovereign will. 6 O death! where is thy sting? Where now
Thy boasted victory, Ograve ?
Can hurt whom God delights to save ? 398 Roseland-p. 286.) 13th P. M. 10 10,1111. THE
The The saints have a mountain of blessings in him; His grace is the fountain, his peace is the stream. 2 To Him our request we now have made known, "Who sees what is best for each of his own:
THEL earth is the Lord's
, and all it contains ; ;
Our heathenish care, we cast it aside ; He heareth the prayer, and he will provide. 3 The modest and meek the earth shall possess; The kingdom who seek of Jesus's grace, The power of his Spirit shall joyfully own, And all things inherit in virtue of One. 399 Ledbury-p. 151.] Ist P. M. 6 lines 8s.
TOW I have found the ground wherein The wounds of Jesus, for my sin
Before the world's foundation slain ; Whose mercy shall unshaken stay, When heaven and earth are fled away. 2 Father, thine everlasting grace
Our scanty thought surpasses far :
Thy arms of love still open are,
My sins are swallow'd up in thee;
Nor spot of guilt remains on me,
Here is my hope, my joy, my rest ;
I look into my Saviour's breast; Away, sad doubt and anxious fear! Mercy is all that's written there. 5 Though waves and storms go o'er my head ; Though strength, and health, and friends be Though joys be wither'd all and dead;
Though every comfort be withdrawn;
Though my heart fail, and flesh decay This anchor shall my soul sustain,
When earth's foundations melt away ; Mercy's full power I then shall prove, Loved with an everlasting love.
THE CHRISTIAN'S WARFARE.
And put your armour on, Strong in the strength which God supplies
Through his eternal Son:
And in his mighty power,
Is more than conqueror.
With all his strength endued ; But take, to arm you for the fight,
The panoply of God :
And all your conflicts past,
And stand entire at last.
In close and firm array ;
Legions of wily fiends oppose
Throughout the evil day :
But mock their vain design,
Of righteousness divine.
No weakness of the soul ;
And fortify the whole : Indissolubly join'd,
To battle all proceed; But arm yourselves with all the mind
That was in Christ your Head. Charing—p. 129.] SECOND PART. BUT, above all, lay hold
On faith's victorious shield ; Arm'd with that adamant and gold,
Be sure to win the field : If faith surround your heart,
Satan shall be subdued ; Repell’d his every fiery dart,
And quench'd with Jesus' blood. 2 Jesus hath died for you!
What can his love withstand ? Believe, hold fast your shield, and who
Shall pluck you from his hand ? Believe that Jesus reigns,
All power to him is given : Believe, till freed from sin's remains ;
Believe yourselves to heaven! 3 To keep your armour bright,
Attend with constant care, Still walking in your Captain's sight,
And watching unto prayer.
Ready for all alarms
Steadfastly set your face, And always exercise your arms,
And use your every grace. 4 Pray, without ceasing, pray,
(Your Captain gives the word ;). His summons cheerfully obey,
And call upon the Lord :
In instant prayer display :
Pray, without ceasing, pray.
To God with faith draw near : Approach his courts, besiege his throne,
With all the power of prayer;
Nor from his altar move;
And every heart his love. 2 To God your spirits dart;
Your souls in words declare ;
Th' unutterable prayer ;
And now show forth his praise ; In shouts, or silent awe, adore
His miracles of grace. 3 Pour out your souls to God,
And bow them with your knees; And spread your hearts and hands abroad,
And pray for Sion's peace. Your guides and brethren bear
For ever on your mind;
