4 My soul to Thee alone
Now, therefore, I commend;
78. 429 Without me ye can do nothing.“
John 15, 5.
Still supply my every want;
From Thy fulness I am fed.
Weaker than a bruised reed,
Help I every moment need.
Love me, save me to the end ;

in joy.-Ps. 120, 5. 1 THE THE Lord can clear the darkest skies,
Can give us day for night;
To rivers of delight.
Till the fair harvest come! [great, They shall confess their sheaves are
And shout the blessings home. 3 The seed, though buried long in dust,
Shall not deceive their hope:
C.M. 431 They shall never perish.—John 10, 1 FIRM as the earth Thy gospel stands
My soul can ne'er be lost.

His chosen from His breast; Safe in the mansions of His love They must for ever rest.

78. 433 Speak unto the children of Israel
that they go forward.-Exod. 14, 15. 1 ,
Let us trust and still obey,

Since the Lord vouchsafes to lead. 3 Though it be the gloom of night,
Though we see no ray of light,
Where He is there all is light;
They are happy who obey.
Him to follow without fear,
. 3, 6. 1 WHEN darkness long has veiled my
And smiling day once more appears,
2 I chide my unbelieving heart,
And blush that I should ever be
Or harbour one hard thought of Thee! 3 O let me then, at length, be taught
What I am still so slow to learn,
Nor knows the shadow of a turn. 4 Sweet truth, and easy to repeat !
But when my faith is sharply tried,
Unskilful, weak, and apt to slide
Subdues the disobedient will;
And Thy rebellious child is still. 6 Thou art as ready to forgive,
As I am ready to repine;
104th. 435 of His fulness have all we received.
-John 1, 26.
In Jesus our Head,
To give to the poor.
We need not to fear;
When dangers arise.
Our woes to redress,

Awaits us below,
While Jesus is near.
Or danger or strife,
C.M. 436 Fear not; He will come and sare
you.- . , 4 1 YEtrembling souls, dismiss your fears, Mercy, which like a river flows
In one perpetual stream. 2 Fear not the powers of earth and hell ;
God will those powers restrain;
And make their efforts vain.

And all they need besides.
Or leave His work undone:
And faithful to His Son.
Or death's tremendous sting;
To endless glory bring.

Thy son, Thy servant, bought with 3 With heart, and eyes, and lifted hands,
For Thee I long, to Thee I look ;
Pant for the cooling water-brook. 4 With early feet I love to appear
Among Thy saints, and seek Thy face; Oft have I seen Thy glory there, And felt the power of sovereign grace. 5 I'll lift my hands, I'll raise my voice,
While I have breath to pray or praise; This work shall make my heart rejoice, And fill the remnant of my days.

Where I my God may meet;. Though hosts of foes begird it round,
Though briars wound my feet. 3 Cheered with Thy converse, I can trace
The desert with delight: (Thine Through all the gloom, one smile of
