Kept by the power of God through faith unto [C.M. salvation.-1 Pet. i. 5.
1 Nor unto us, but thee, O Lord,
Be praise and glory given,
For every gracious thought and word,
And safe, at last, they all shall stand,
3 Redeem'd from sin, and saved by grace,
4 O hasten, Lord, the glorious day;
Teach us, with humble hope, to say,
Lord, teach us to pray.-Luke xi. 1.
The motion of a hidden fire,
That trembles in the breast.
2 Prayer is the burden of a sigh,
The upward glancing of an eye,
3 Prayer is the simplest form of speech
Prayer the sublimest strains that reach
4 Prayer is the Christian's vital breath,
His watchword at the gates of death:
5 Prayer is the contrite sinner's voice,
6 The saints in prayer appear as one,
7 Nor prayer is made on earth alone,
8 0 thou by whom we come to God,
Continuing instant in prayer.-Rom. xii. 12.
1 WHAT various hindrances we meet,
Yet who that knows the worth of prayer
2 Prayer makes the darken'd cloud withdraw;
3 Restraining prayer, we cease to fight;
The weakest saint upon his knees.
4 Have we no words? ah! think again :
5 Were half the breath thus vainly spent
Our cheerful song would oftener be,
214 The Lord will bless his people with peace.
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 life,
Our balm in sorrow, and our stay in strife;
Then, when thy voice shall bid our conflicts
Call us, O Lord, to thine eternal peace P
While he blessed them, he was parted from [8s, 7s, 4.
1 LORD, dismiss us with thy blessing,
Travelling through this wilderness.
2 Thanks we give, and adoration,
With us evermore be found.
3 So, whene'er the signal's given,
Reign with Christ in endless day."
Go in peace.-Luke vii. 50.
1 MAY the grace of Christ our Saviour,
2 Thus may we abide in union
The Ascension: Heaven.
"THOU SITTEST AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD IN THE GLORY OF THE FATHER."
"MAY WE ALSO IN HEART AND MIND THITHER ASCEND."
Thou hast ascended on high.-Ps. Ìxviii. 18. [78.
1 HAIL the day that sees him rise,
Still he loves the earth he leaves; Hallelujah!
Though returning to his throne,
Still he calls mankind his own.
4 See, he lifts his hands above;
See, he shows the prints of love;
Blessings on his church below.
6 Lord, though parted from our sight, Hallelujah!
High above yon azure height,
Grant our hearts may thither rise,
218 He was taken up, and a cloud received him out of their sight.-Acts i. 9.
1 HE is gone. A cloud of light
