6 Lord ! submissive may we go,
Gladly leaving all below;
C.M. 555 The Lord will give grace and
glory.-Ps. 84, 11.
Supported by its God. 2 Through all the winding maze of life,
His hand hath been my guide;
My heart shall still confide. 3 His grace through all the desert flows,
An unexhausted stream:
Shall be my endless theme.
These distant courts I love;
To view Thy house above.
My soul would there adore, A pillar in Thy temple fixed, To be removed no more.
C.M. 556 Gird up the loins of your mind.
. 13. 1
ow, Your pilgrim-path pursue, In strength and weakness, joy and woe,
To God's high calling true:-2 Why move ye thus with lingering tread,
A doubting mournful band? Why faintly hangs the drooping head ?
Why fails the feeble hand? 3 Oh! weak to know your Saviour's power,
To feel your Father's care;
Is all the grief you share.
4 The Lord of light, though, veiled awhile,
He hide His noon-tide ray,
To gild the closing day.
The faithless doubt remove; Redeemed at last from guilt and fear,
O wake thy beart to love!
557 I am a stranger with Thee, anul a OUR
. 12. 1 UR country is Immanuel's ground:
We seek that promised soil; The songs of Zion cheer our hearts,
While strangers here we toil.
And oft are bathed in tears;
And nought but sin our fears. [raise 3 We tread the path our Master trod;
We bear the cross He bore;
His temples pierced before.
In ecstacies of love;
Our souls are fixed above. 558
11s. Faint yet pursuing.-Judg. 8, 4. 1 THOUGH faint, yet pursuing.
His word is our stay;
And trial be near,
And whom can we fear? 2 IIe raiseth the fallen,
IIe cheereth the faint,
He hears their complaint;
And thorny the road,
Whose help is in God?
3 And to His green pastures
Our footsteps He leads ;
How kindly He feeds!
He tenderly bears,
Safe from the snares.
Our God is our Light,
Our God is our Might;
Still onward we come, The Lord is our Leader,
And heaven our home. 5 And there all His people
So safely and well;
The wilderness past; And Canaan the blessed
Is theirs at the last.
C.M. 559 And a highway, shall be there
the way of holiness.- Isa. 35, 8. 1 SING, ve redeemed
of the Lord ;
Be joyful in your King. 2 See the fair way His hand hath raised,
llow holy and how plain! Nor shall the simplest traveller err,
Nor ask the way in vain. 3 No ravening lion shall destroy,
Nor lurking serpent wound: Pleasure and safety, peace and praise,
Through all the path are found. 4 A hand divine shall lead you on
Through all the blissful road,
to the sacred mount you rise,
5 March, then, in your Redeemer's
strength, Pursue His footsteps still; And let the prospect cheer your hearts,
While travelling up the hill,
C.M. 560 Your life is hid with Christ in God.
. 1 EJOICE, believer, in the Lord,
; The hope that's built upon His word
Can ne'er be overthrown.
And feeble is your arm;
Beyond the reach of harm.
Or, fainting, shall not die;
Will aid you from on high. 4 Though unperceived by mortal sense,
Faith sees Him always near ; A Guide, a Glory, a Defence;
Then what have you to fear ? 5 As surely as He overcame,
And triumphed once for you; So surely you that love His name
Shall triumph in Him too.
561 Lead us not into temptation.
11, 1 EAVENLY Father! to whose eye
Through the desert where I stray,
Let Thy counsels guide my way. 2 Lead me not, for flesh is frail,
Where fierce trials would assail;
To withstand the tempter's power.
Arm me against pleasure's smiles:
4 Lord, uphold me day by day:
Shed a light upon my way:
Care for me in all my cares.
Trials long and sharp for me,
Father, glorify Thy name.
Feeling still that Thou art near;
L.M. 562 Call to remembrance the former
days.-Heb. 10, 32. 1 Thus far my God hath led
me on, And made His truth and mercy
known; My hopes and fears alternate rise,
And comforts mingle with my sighs. 2 Through this wide wilderness I roam,
Far distant from my blissful home; Lord, let Thy presence be my stay, And guard me in this dangerous way. 8 Temptations every where annoy,
And sins and snares my peace destroy ; My earthly joys are from me torn,
And oft an absent God I mourn. 4 Is this, dear Lord, that thorny road,
Which leads us to the mount of God? Are these the toils Thy people know
While in the wilderness below? 5 Tis even so: Thy faithful love
Doth all Thy children's graces prove; Tis thus our pride and self must fall, That Jesus may be All in all.
O.M. The Lord is thy keeper.-Ps. 121, 5. 1 no Zion's hill I lift mine eyes,
From thence expecting aid,
