3 In every dream of earthly bliss, Do Thou, my Saviour, present be; Nor let me think of happiness
On earth, without the thought of Thee. 4 And when before the throne I kneel, Hear from that throne of grace my prayer;
And let each hope of heaven I feel, Burn with the thought to meet Thee there.
5 Thus teach me, Lord, to look to Thee, In every hour of waking thought; Nor let me ever wish to be,
Or think, or feel, where Thou art not.
Pray without ceasing.-1 Thes. 5, 17.
1 LORD, we must labour, we must care By many things be tried,
But we will ever seek Thine aid;
3 As sanctified to noblest ends
Be each refreshment sought; And by each various providence, Some wise instruction brought.
4 Midst hourly cares, may love present Its incense to Thy throne:
And while the world our hands employs, Our hearts be Thine alone.
446 48k, and it shall be given you.—
Matt. 7, 7.
COME, my soul, thy suit prepare;
Jesus loves to answer prayer;
2 Thou art coming to a King;
3 With my burden I begin:
There Thy blood-bought right maintain
5 While I am a pilgrim here,
6 Show me what I have to do;
Let me die Thy people's death.
447 I commune with mine own heart.—
Ps. 77, 6.
Y God, permit me not to be
A stranger to myself and Thee!
2 Why should my soul bechained to earth,
3 Call me away from flesh and sense;
I would obey the voice Divine,
4 Be earth with all her scenes withdrawn: Let noise and vanity be gone:
In secret silence of the mind
My heaven, and there my God I find.
448 That Christ may dwell in your
hearts by faith.-Eph. 3, 17.
1 COME, dearest Lord, descend and
By faith and love in every breast;
2 Come, fill our hearts with inward strength,
Make our enlarged souls possess, And learn the height, and breadth, and length
Of Thine unmeasurable grace.
3 Now to the God whose power can do More than our thoughts or wishes know, Be everlasting honours done
By all the Church through Christ His Son,
449 The love of Christ which passeth
knowledge.-Eph. 3, 19.

visited us.-Luke 1, 78.

Triumph o'er the shades of night;
More and more Thyself display,

adoption.-Rom. 8, 15.
SOVEREIGN of all the worlds on high,
Allow my humble claim;
Nor, while from earth to Thee I cry,
2 My Father God, how sweet the sound!
3 Come, sacred Spirit, seal the name
4 Cheered by a signal so divine,
And, Abba, Father, humbly cry,
5 On wings of everlasting love

shadow of death,-Isa. 9, 2.

2 The new heaven and earth's Creator,
3 Still we wait for Thine appearing,
4 Come, extend Thy wonted favour
Still with Thee.-Ps. 139, 18.
STILL with Thee, O my God,
would desire to be;
By day, by night, at home, abroad,
With Thee, when dawn comes in
3 With Thee, amid the crowd
To hear Thy voice, mid clamour loud,
4 With Thee, when day is done,
Calm in the shadow of Thy wings,
