When black the threatening clouds appear, And storms my path invade, That

Christian Courage.

3. Firm as his throne, his promise stands,

And he can well secure 1. WHEN Waves of sorrow round me swell,

What I've committed to his hands, My soul is not dismayed;

Till the decisive hour. I hear a voice I know full well“'Tis I, be not afraid.”

4. Then will he own my worthless name 2. When black the threatening clouds ap- Before his Father's face, pear,

And in the new Jerusalem
torms my path invade,

Appoint my soul a place.
That voice shall tranquilize each fear,-
“ 'Tis I, be not afraid.”


Christian Soldier. 3. There is a gulf that must be crossed, Saviour ! be near to aid;

1. Am I a soldier of the cross ? Whisper, when my frail bark is tossed, A follower of the Lamb ? “ 'Tis I, be not afraid.”

And shall I fear to own his cause,

Or blush to speak his name 4. There is a dark and fearful vale, Death hides within its shade;

2. Must I be carried to the skies Oh!

say, when flesh and heart shall fail,
'Tis I, be not afraid,”

On flowery beds of ease ?
While others fought to win the prize,

And sailed through bloody seas ? Christian Assurance. 1. I'm not ashamed to own my Lord,

3. Are there no foes for me to face ? Or to defend his cause;

Must I not stem the flood ? Maintain the honor of his word,

Is this vile world a friend to grace, The glory of his cross.

To help me on to God 2. Jesus, my God! I know his name 4. Sure I must fight, if I would reign; His name is all my trust;

Increase my courage, Lord ! Nor will he put my soul to shame, I'll bear the toil, endure the pain, Nor let my hope be lost.

Supported by thy word.

4. Behold he comes! he comes to bless 5. I would begin the music here, The nations as their God,

And so my soul should rise; To show the world his righteousness, Oh for some heavenly notes to bear And send his truth abroad.

My passions to the skies ! 6. But when his voice shall raise the dead, 6. There ye that love my Saviour sit, And bid the world draw near,

There I would fain have place, How will the guilty nations dread Among your thrones, or at your feet, To see their Judge appearl

So I might see his face.

HEPHER. 118.


1. De-lay

not, de - lay not, o sin - ner, draw near, The wa-ters



are now flow-ing for thee;

No price is de · mand-ed, the

Sa - viour is here; Re - demp-tion is

purchased, sal - va - tion is free.


Dangers of Delay.
1. DELAY not, delay not, O sinner draw near,

The waters of life are now flowing for thee;
No price is demanded, the Saviour is here;

Redemption is purchased, salvation is free.
2. Delay not, delay not, why longer abuse

The love and compassion of Jesus thy God?
A fountain is open, how canst thou refuse

To wash and be cleansed in his pardoning blood ?
3. Delay not, delay not, O sinner, to come,

For Mercy still lingers and calls thee to-day:
Her voice is not heard in the vale of the tomb;

Her message unbeeded will soon pass away.
4. Delay not, delay not, the Spirit of grace

Long grieved and resisted may take his sad flight,
And leave thee in darkness to finish thy race,

To sink in the vale of eternity's night!
6. Delay not, delay not, the hour is at hand,

The earth shall dissolve, and the heavens shall fade;
The dead, small and great, in the judgment shall stand;

What power then, O sinner, will lend thee its aid !


1. How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,

Is laid for your faith in his excellent word;
What more can be say than to you he hath said
Who unto the Saviour for refuge have fled.

2. Fear not, I am with thee, oh! be not dismayed;

For I am thy God, and will still give thee aid:
I'll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand,
Upheld by my righteous, omnipotent hand.

3. When through the deep waters I call thee to go,

The rivers of sorrow shall not overflow;
For I will be with thee, thy trials to bless,
And sanctify to thee thy deepest distress.

4. When through fiery trials thy pathway shall lie,

My grace, all sufficient, shall be thy supply,
The flame shall not hurt thee; I only design
Thy dross to consume, and thy gold to refine.

5. E'en down to old age all my people shall prove

My sovereign, eternal, unchangeable love;
And then, when gray hairs shall their temples adorn,
Like lavabs they shall still in My bosom be borne.

6. The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose,

I will not-I will not desert to his foes :
That soul-though all hell should endeavor to shake,
I'll never-no never-no never forsake!


Our Shepherd.
1. THE Lord is my Shepherd, no want shall I know;

I feed in green pastures, safe folded to rest;
He leadeth my soul where the still waters flow,

Restores me when wandering, redeems when oppressed.

2. Through the valley and shadow of death though I stray,

Since Thou art my Guardian, no ovil I fear;
Thy rod shall defend me, thy staff be my stay ;

No harm can befall, with my Comforter near.

3. In the midst of affliction my table is spread;

With blessings unmeasured my cup runneth o'er;
With perfume and oil thou anointest my head;

O what shall I ask of thy providence more.

4. Let goodness and mercy, my bountiful God!

Still follow my steps till I meet thee above ;
I seek by the path which my forefathers trod,

Through the land of their sojourn—thy kingdom of love.
