o God blessed the seventh day and sanc. L. M. • tified it.”—Gen. ii. 3. ANOTHER six days work is done,
Another sabbath is begun; Return, my soul, enjoy thy rest,
Improve the day thy God hath blest.
So sweet a rest to wearied minds;
And gives this day the food of seven.
As grateful incense to the skies;
Which none but he that feels it knows. 4 This heavenly calm within the breast,
Is the dear pledge of glorious rest,
The end of cares, the end of pains. 5 In holy duties, let the day
In holy pleasures pass away;
The followers of the Lamb ?
Or blush to speak his name?
2 Now must we fight if we would reign;
Supported by thy word.
Shall conquer, tho' they're slain ;
And shall with Jesus reign.
And all thy armies shine
The glory shall be thine.
C.M. • the goodness of thy house.”—Ps. xxxvi. 8. ARISE, O King of grace, arise,
And enter to thy rest; Lo! thy church waits with longing eyes,
Thus to be own'd and bless'd. 2 Enter with all thy glorious train,
Thy Spirit and thy word;
Could no such grace afford.
Here let thy praise be spread ; Bless the provisions of thy house,
And fill thy poor with bread. 4 Here let the Son of David reign,
Let God's anointed shine ;
Justice and truth his court maintain
With love and power divine.
And, as his kingdom grows,
And shame confound his foes.
Jesus our Leader is;
For victory is his.
We'll follow where he goes ;
Since he subdues our foes. 3 Lead on, Almighty Lord ;
Lead on to victory;
With joy we'll follow thee. 4 Arise, ye saints, and praise,
Jesus our Leader is ;
For victory is his. 15.
L. M. “ Thy kingdom come.”—Matt. vi. 10. AS SCEND thy throne, Almighty King, And spread thy glories all abroad;
Let thine own arm salvation bring,
And be thou known the gracious God. 2 Let millions bow before thy seat,
Let humble mourners seek thy face,
Subdu'd by thy victorious grace. 3 O let the kingdoms of the world
Become the kingdoms of the Lord ;
"As he sat at meat with them he took 16.
bread.”—Luke xxiv. 30.
Here we meet with one accord;
May we find thy house our home.
While we keep this feast anew;
May we feel ourselves at home!
Leaving all to dwell with thee;
Thy kind presence makes our home.
All rejoice in cleansing blood;
Of Moses and the Lamb!
To praise the Saviour's name. 2 Sing of his dying love,
Sing of his rising pow'r;
For those whose sins he bore. 3 Sing on your heav'nly way,
Ye ransom'd sinners sing;
In Christ th' eternal King.

To take his wand'rers home.

Prepare a tuneful voice:
Aloud will I rejoice.
And made salvation mine; Upon a poor polluted worm
He makes his graces shine.
