5 Lord, we are few, but thou art near;
Nor short thine arm, nor deaf thine ear;
Now are we all here present before God.
Acts x. 33.
[8s. 78. 4.
1 In thy name, O Lord, assembling,
We, thy people, now draw near;
Speak, and let thy servants hear, Hear with meekness, hear thy word with godly fear. 2 While our days on earth are lengthen’d,
May we give them, Lord, to thee, Cheer'd by hope, and daily strengthen'd,
May we run, nor weary be; Till thy glory without clouds in heaven we see. 3 Then in worship purer, sweeter,
Thee thy people shall adore,
Far than thought conceived before,
Lord, I have loved the habitation of thy house. [6s.
Ps. xxvi. 8.
Wherein thine honour dwells;
All earthly joy excels.
Wherein thy servants meet;
Thy chosen flock to greet.
Where thou, the living Bread,
4 We love the word of life,
The word that tells of peace,
And joys that never cease.
For mercies freely given ;
The triumph-song of heaven.
On earth to love thee more,
And with thy saints adore. Amen. 210 The Lord is in this place.-Gen. xxviii. 16. [Six 88. 1 Lo, God is here : let us adore,
And own how dreadful is this place :
And silent bow before his face :
Serve him with awe, with reverence love.
The united choirs of angels sing;
Heaven's host their noblest praises bring.
Who praise thee with a stammering tongue. 3 Gladly the toys of earth we leave,
Wealth, pleasure, fame for thee alone;
O take, O seal them for thine own;
Be thou by all thy works adored.
Thy courts with grateful fragrance fill;
Still hear and do thy sovereign will ;
211 Kept by the power of God through faith into [C.M.
salvation.-1 Pet. i. 5.
Be praise and glory given,
Which brings us nearer heaven !
Before thy throne on high.
Thy glory they shall see;
For ever dwell with thee.
Call all thy children home;
Lord Jesu, quickly come.
212 Lord, teach us to pray.—Luke xi. 1. [C.M. 1 PRAYER is the soul's sincere desire,
Utter'd or unexpress’d;
That trembles in the breast.
The falling of a tear,
When none but God is near.
That infant lips can try,
The Majesty on high.
The Christian's native air,
He enters heaven with prayer.
5 Prayer is the contrite sinner's voice,
Returning from his ways; ;
And cry, "Behold, he prays."
In word, and deed, and mind;
Sweet fellowship they find.
The Holy Spirit pleads ;
For sinners intercedes.
The Life, the Truth, the Way,
Lord, teach us how to pray.
213 Continuing instant in prayer. - Rom. xii. 12. [L.M. 1 What various hindrances we meet,
In coming to the mercy-seat !
2 Prayer makes the darken'd cloud withdraw;
Prayer climbs the ladder Jacob saw,
Brings every blessing from above.
Prayer makes the Christian's armour bright;
Words flow apace when we complain,
5 Were half the breath thus vainly spent
To heaven in supplication sent,
214 The Lord will bless his people with peace. [10s.
Ps. xxix. 11. 1 SAVIOUR, again to thy dear name we raise
With one accord our parting hymn of praise, We stand to bless thee ere our worship cease,
Then lowly kneeling wait thy word of peace. 2 Grant us thy peace upon our homeward way;
With thee began, with thee shall end the day; Guard thou the lips from sin, the hearts from
shame, That in this house have call’d upon thy name. 3 Grant us thy peace, Lord, through the coming
night, Turn thou for us its darkness into light; From harm and danger keep thy children free,
For dark and light are both alike to thee. 4 Grant us thy peace throughout our earthly
While he blessed them, he was parted from [8s, 78, 4.
them.-Luke xxiv. 51.
1 LORD, dismiss us with thy blessing,
Fill our hearts with joy and peace;
O refresh us,
