Τ Η Ε INVOCATION.

BREATHE on my Wreath, blest Spirit, let the

fire Warm from Thy burning altar, now inspire A feeble worm, Thine unction pour on me, Tuning my heart's full melody to Thee. Teach me to celebrate a Saviour's praise, And sing His glories in these humble lays. Jesus, I feel Thy love, I know Thy grace Has cleansed my soul, and checked my sinful

race.

I cannot doubt, blest Lord, that I am Thine, Humbly believing, I can call Thee mine.

Like a deep tide Thy beauteous glories roll, And fill with heavenly joy my raptured soul. Shrined in my inmost heart, Thy name shall

be A bed of sweets, and holy fragrancy. Lord, I shall meet Thee soon, these mortal

eyes Withont a veil, shall see Thee in the skies ! This earthly frame shall Thy full image bear, Know Thy deep love and all Thy glory share. The Father's grace chose a pure bride for thee, Ere worlds were made, or man was formed to

be; And every member of Thy church shall shine A living star, with lustre all divine; Shall dwell with Thee in ages yet to come, Bought by Thy blood to share Thy heavenly

home.
