716. Invitation to Christ. (P. M.)
From Sion's mount I heard the sound; Gay sprang the flow'rets of the mead,
And gladden’d nature smil'd around.
Christ's lovely voice perfumes the air. 2 Peace, troubled soul, whose plaintive moan
Hath taught these rocks the note of woe; • Cease thy complaint, suppress thy groan,
And let thy tears forget to flow.
Unburthen here the weighty load ;
Safe on the bosom of thy God.
That sheaths th' avenger's glittring sword. 4 As spring the winter, day the night,
Peace sorrow's gloom shall chase away;
Shall’tend thy steps, and near thee stay,
DOXOLOGIES AND DISMISSIONS.
717. (L. M.) mo God the Father, God the Son,
1 And God the Spirit, three in one,
718. (S. M.)
And saints that dwell below,
719. (L. M.)
Make us to feed upon thy word:
720. (C. M.) DATHER, before we hence depart,
Send thy good Spirit down : Let him reside in ev'ry heart,
And bless the seed that's sowu.
3 Thon fountain of eternal love,
Who gav'st thy Son to die,
721. (P. M.)
U Fill our hearts with joy and peace; Let us each, thy love possessing, Triumph in redeeming grace.
O refresh us,
For thy gospel's joyful sound,
Us from earth to call away,
May we ever,
722. (S. M.)
We'll bless the Saviour's name;
Sing ev'ry tongue the same.'
And feed thereon and grow;
And practise what you know.
723. (P.M.) I M AY the grace of Christ our Saviour,
W And the Father's boundless love, With the Holy Spirit's favour,
Rest upon us from above.
With each other, and the Lord;
725. (P. M.) G LORY, honour, praise, and power,
I Be unto the Lamb for ever ; Jesus Christ is our Redeemer, Hallelujah, Amen.
726. (L. M.) 1 CHRISTIANS! brethren ! ere we part,
u Join every voice, and every heart; One solemn hymn to God we raise,
One final song of grateful praise.
But there is yet a happier shore ;
8 Now to God the Three in One,
Be eternal glory done ;
727. (C.M.) VLORY to the Almighty Lord,
U Who gave to all things breath; Glory unto the gracious word,
Who sav'd us by his death;
By whom all things do move :
728. (P.M.) To God, the Father, King supreme, 1 And Christ, who did his Church redeem,
And to the Holy Ghost,
729. (P. M.) WIVE glory to God, ye children of men,
And publish abroad, again and again ; The Son's glorious merit, the Father's free grace, The gifts of the Spirit, to Adam's lost race.
And glorify the Son.
To bless the great Three-One.
