3 When my feet stumble, I'll to thee cry;
Crown of the humble, cross of the high :
Truer and fonder, Saviour and Friend. 4 Ever confessing thee, I will raise
Unto thee blessing, glory, and praise :-
340 Thy statutes have been my songs in the house of my [78.
pilgrimage.-Ps. cxix. 54.
As ye journey, sweetly sing;
Glorious in his works and ways.
In the way the fathers trod :
Soon their happiness shall see.
You on Jesus' throne shall rest:
There your kingdom and reward.
Zion's city is in sight;
There our Lord we soon shall see.
On the borders of your land;
Bids you undismay'd go on.
Gladly leaving all below :
341 The redeemed of the Lord shall return and come [8s. 78.
with singing unto Zion.- Isa. li. 11.
Onward goes the pilgrim band,
Marching to the promised land.
Gleams and burns the guiding light;
Stepping fearless through the night.
O’er his ransom'd people shed,
Brightening all the path we tread:
One the faith which never tires,
One the hope our God inspires :
Lift as from the heart of one;
One the march in God begun: 6 One the gladness of rejoicing
On the far eternal shore,
Reigns in love for evermore.
Onward with the cross our aid;
Till we rest beneath its shade.
Soon the rending of the tomb;
And the end of toil and gloom."
342 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much [11s.
fruit.—John xv. 8. 1 Saviour, blessed Saviour, listen whilst we sing,
Hearts and voices raising praises to our King. All we have we offer; all we hope to be;
Body, soul, and spirit, all we yield to Thee. 2 Farther, ever farther, from thy wounded side
Heedlessly we wander'd, wander'd far and wide; Till thou cam'st in mercy, seeking young and
old, Lovingly to bear them, Saviour, to thy fold. 3 Nearer, ever nearer, Christ, we draw to thee,
Deep in adoration bending low the knee:
high. 4 Great and ever greater are thy mercies here;
True and everlasting are the glories there, Where no pain or sorrow, toil or care is known,
Where the angel legions circle round thy throne. 5 Clearer still and clearer dawns the right from
heaven, In our sadness bringing news of sin forgiven; Life has lost its shadows, pure the light within;
Thou hast shed thy radiance on a world of sin. 6 Brighter still and brighter glows the western
sun, Shedding all its gladness o’er our work that's
done; Time will soon be over, toil and sorrow past;
May we, blessed Saviour, find a rest at last. 7 Onward, ever onward, journeying o'er the road
Worn by saints before us, journeying on to God; Leaving all behind us, may we hasten on, Backward never looking till the prize is won.
8 Higher then and higher bear the ransom'd soul,
Earthly toils forgotten, Saviour, to its goal; Where, in joys unthought of, saints with angels
sing, Never weary raising praises to their King.
Sundays after Trinity : Elarning and
Invitation. “TO-DAY, IF YE WILL HEAR HIS VOICE, HARDEN
NOT YOUR HEARTS.
343 Exhort one another daily while it is called [S.M.
to-day.--Heb. iii. 13. 1 TO-MORROW, Lord, is thine,
Lodged in thy sovereign hand;
It shines by thy command. 2 The present moment flies,
And bears our life away;
That they may live to-day. 3 Since, on this winged hour
Eternity is hung,
The aged and the young.
O be it still pursued;
Should never be renew’d. 5 To Jesus may we fly,
Swift as the morning light;
In sudden endless night.
344 Let us labour to enter into that rest.—Heb. iv. 11. (S.M. 1 ( WHERE shall rest be found,
Rest for the weary soul ?
Or pierce to either pole.
The bliss for which we sigh,
Nor all of death to die.
There is a life above,
And all that life is love.
Outlasts the fleeting breath;
Around the second death!
Teach us that death to shun,
And evermore undone.
Alone are found in thee
345 Him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. [78. 6s
John vi. 37.
And I will give you rest.”
Which comes to hearts oppress'd!
Of pardon, grace, and peace,
Of love which cannot cease.
