Close of the Year.
1 O GOD! to thee our hearts would pay
Their gratitude sincere,
2 Of every breath, and every power, Thou wast the gracious source; From thee came every happy hour
Which smiled along its course.
3 And if sometimes across our path
4 For joy and grief alike we pay
Reflections for a New Year. Psalm 90.
1 REMARK, my soul, the narrow bounds
How swift the weeks complete their rounds!
Dec 31, 6ir.
2 So fast eternity comes on,
3 Yet like an idle tale we pass
4 Waken, O God, my trifling heart,
5 Thus shall their course more grateful roll, If future years arise;
Or this shall bear my peaceful soul
For the Beginning or End of the Year.
1 My helper, God! I bless his name;
3 Thus far his arm hath led me on;
Prayer for the Slave.
1 LORD! deliver; thou canst save;
2 He, whose ear is everywhere,
3 From the tyranny within,
Save thy children, Lord! we pray;
4 Love to man and love to God
The Redeeming Power of Love.
1 O NOT to crush with abject fear The burdened soul of man Did Jesus on the earth appear,
And open Heaven's high plan: He came to bid him find repose, And God his Father know; And thus with love to raise up That once were bowed low.
2 O not in coldness nor in pride
'T was his delight to turn aside
3 O not with cold, unfeeling eye
And deem their tears untrue:
Who is thy Neighbor?
1 WHO is thy neighbor? He whom thou
2 Thy neighbor?
T is the fainting poor, Whose eye with want is dim;
O enter thou his humble door,
3 Thy neighbor? He who drinks the cup
4 Thy neighbor? 'T is the weary slave, Fettered in mind and limb;
He hath no hope this side the grave;
Thy neighbor? Pass no mourner by;
Do good to the Poor for Christ's Sake.
1 LORD, lead the way the Saviour went,
And let our treasures still be spent,
Like him through scenes of deep distress
For thou hast placed us side by side
And that thy followers may be tried,
4 Small are the offerings we can make;
If given for the Saviour's sake,
