And with an undefiled tongue
May sing the Spirit, ever young,
Through Heaven's long days.
Sing Thee, whose voice was heard aloud,
See that ye refuse not Him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused Him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from Him who speaketh from Heaven.-HEB. xii.
Jesu, the heart's own sweetness, and true light,
In whom each anxious longing finds repose.
Stay with us, Lord, and with Thy kindly ray
And sweetness shall revive the drooping earth.
When Thou the heart dost visit, all things seem
Good Jesus, while time's scroll 1 still unfold,
He whom Thy love makes glad as with new wine, He knows that knowledge which is from above; Full blest is he; that fulness is Divine,
And there is nothing else that he can love.
Thou art the Fount of pity; as it flows
All drink of Thine abundance infinite: Thou art the only Sun Thy country knows; Scatter the clouds, and show us Thy true light.
Hymn on the Judgment.
Out of the deep have I called unto thee, O Lord; Lord, hear my voice: Olet Thine ears consider well the voice of my complaint. If Thou, Lord, wilt be extreme to mark what is done amiss, O Lord, who may abide it?-PSALM CXXX.
Day of wrath!-that awful day
The trembling, the agony,

Death and Time shall stand aghast
And Creation, at the blast,
Rise, to answer for the past.
Then the volume shall be spread,
And the writir g shall be read,
Which shall judge the quick and dead!
Then the Judge shall sit! oh! then,
All that's hid shall be made plain,
What shall wretched I then plead ?
Who for me shall intercede,
When the righteous scarce is freed?
King of dreadful Majesty,
Bear me, Lord, in heart I pray,
Weary seeking me wast Thou,
Judge of Justice, Thee, I pray,
O'er my crimes 1 guilty groan,
Thou didst set the adultress free,
Nought of Thee my prayers can claim, Save in Thy free mercy's name,
Save me from the deathless flame!
With Thy sheep my place assign,
When the lost, to silence driven,
