Eternity will not erase,
This world is ours, and worlds to come: Earth is our lodge, and heaven our

To use, and to improve them too. 3 If peace and plenty crown my days, They help me, Lord, to speak Thy
Those sorrows work my lasting good. 4 I would not change my blest estate
For all the world calls good or great;
I envy not the sinner's gold.
Thou shalt divide my portion still;
495 Noo are we the sons of God.
1 John 3, 2
The Father hath bestowed
To call them sons of God! 2 Tis no surprising thing
That we should be unknown:
3 Nor doth it yet appear
How great we must be made;
We shall be like our Head.
I share a filial part,
To rest upon my heart. 6 I would no longer lie
A slave beneath the throne, My faith shall, Abba Father, cry,
And Thou the kindred own,
S.M. 496 Blessed are all they that wait for
Him.-Isa. 30, 18. 1
COUR harps, ye trembling saints, Loud to the praise of love divine,
Bid every string awake.
We are not far from home;
We every moment come. 3 His grace will to the end
Stronger and brighter shine;
Shall quench the spark divine. s When we in darkness walk,
Nor feel the heavenly flame,
And rest upon His name.

That stays himself on Thee!
Shall Thy salvation see.
497 Godliness i profitable unto all
Sweetest pleasures while we live;
C.M. 498 Delight thyself also in the Lord.
-Ps. 57, 4. 1 O
LORD! I would delight in Thee,
And on Thy care depend;
My best, my only Friend.
Thy fulness is the same;
And glory in Thy name!
Who has a fountain near-
With waters sweet and clear?
But may be found in Thee ;
While God is God to me.
To look within the veil;
Whose word can never fail!. 6 He that has made my heaven secure,
Will here all good provide,
What can I want beside ?
I triumph and adore:
To love and please Thee more.
PATIENCE AND SUBMISSION.
104th, 499 Why are ye fearful, 0 ye of little
faith!-Matt. , 20.
My Saviour is near,
Will surely appear;
And He will perform;
I smile at the storm. 2 Though
dark be my way,
Tis His to provide:
And creatures all fail,
Shall surely prevail. 3 His love, in time past,
Forbids me to think He'll leave me at last
In trouble to sink; Each sweet Ebenezer
I have in review, Confirms His good pleasure
To help me quite through. 4 Determined to save,
He watched o'er my path,
I spórted with death:
To trust in His name,
To put me to shame? 6 Why should I complain
of want or distress, Temptation or pain?
He told me no less: The heirs of salvation,
I know from His word, Through much tribulation
Must follow their Lord.
6 How bitter that cup,
No heart can conceive, Which He drank quite up,
That sinners might live! His way was much rougher,
And darker than mine: Did Christ my Lord suffer,
And shall I repine? 7 Since all that I meet
Shall work for my good, The bitter is sweet,
The medicine, food; Though painful at present,
"Twill cease before long, And then, O how pleasant The conqueror's song!

of the Lord.-2 Cor. 3, 18.
Glorify Thyself in me;
May the world Thine image see. 2 Happy only in Thy love,
Poor, unfriended, or unknown;
Stay my heart on Thee alone. 3 Humble, holy, all resigned
To Thy will-Thy will be done!
Of Thy well-beloved Son,
L.M. 501 1 said not unto the seed of Jacob,
of my life, to Thee I call,
Amicted at thy feet I fall;
Leave not iny trembling heart to fail! 2 Friend of the friendless and the faint!
Where should I lodge my deepcomplaint?
