4 Thy kingdom come, even now we wait
Nor e'er withdraw thyself again. 5 Thy will, thy law, thy precept given,
Be done on earth as 'tis in heaven,
64. For a Prayer Meeting. (L. M.) 1 ESUS, where'er thy people meet,
There they behold thy mercy-seat; Where'er they seek thee thou art found,
And ev'ry place is hallow'd ground. 2 For thou, within no walls confin'd,
Inhabitest the humble mind;
And going, take thee to their home. 3 Dear Shepherd of thy chosen few!
Thy former mercies here renew;
The sweetness of thy saving name. 4 Here may we prove the pow'r of pray'r,
To strengthen faith, and sweeten care;
And bring all bear'n before our eyes. 5 Behold! at thy commanding word,
We stretch the curtain and the cord ;
6 Lord, we are few, but thou art near ;
Nor short thine arm, nor deaf thine ear;
The same. (L. M.) 1 W!
HERE two or three with sweet accor
Obedient to their sov'reign Lord,
And offer solemn pray’r and praise :
“ Amid this little company ;
“ And shed my glories round the place.” 3 We meet at thy command, dear Lord,
Relying on thy faithful word;
And fill our hearts with heav'nly love. 66.
The same. (L. M.) 1 INDRED in Christ, for his dear sake,
May we together now partake
The joys which only he can give. 2.To you and me by grace 'tis giv'n
To know the Saviour's precious name;
Our hope, our way, our end the same. 3 May he, by whose kind care we meet,
Send his good Spirit from above,
4 Forgotten be each worldly theme,
5 We'll talk of all he did, and said,
6 Thus, as the moments pass away,
67. Baptism. Matt. xxviii. 19. Acts ii. 38. (L. M.) I'TWA WAS the commission of our Lord,
Go, teach the nations, and baptize;" The nations bave receiv'd the word
Since he ascended to the skies. 2 He sits upon th' eternal hills,
With grace and pardon in his hands,
For the remission of your sins ;".
4 Our souls he washes in his blood,
As water makes the body clean ;
Descends like purifying rain.
And seal our cov'nant with the Lord;
In heav'n our solemn vows record ! 68. Children devoted to God in Baptism.
Gen. xvii. 7. Acts xvi. 14, 15, 33. (L. M.) 1 THUS saith the mercy of the Lord, TH
“ I'll be a God to thee; " I'll bless thy num'rous race, and they
“ Shall be a seed for me. 2 Abra'm believ'd the promis'd grace, ,
And gave his son to God;
That once was seald with blood. 3 Thus Lydia sanctify'd her house,
When she receiv'd the word;
His household to the Lord.
Thine ancient truth embrace ;
And humbly claim thy grace. 69. Circumcision and Infant Baptism. (C. M.) 1
2 By milder ways doth Jesus prove
His Father's covenant, and his love;
And not forbids their infant race.
Their children set apart for God;
Like water pour'd upon the head.
In this large covenant rejoice;
70. Faith assisted by Sense, or Preaching, Baptism,
and the Lord's Supper. (C. M.) 1 MY
Y Saviour God, my sov'reign Prince,
Reigns far above the skies!
And helps my faith to rise.
They read and hear his word :
When they receive the Lord. 3 Baptismal water is design'd
To seal his cleansing grace,
He gives bis saints a place. 4 But not the waters of a flood
Can make my flesh so clean,
He'll wash my soul from sin.
