(L. B. 316.] 8 lines 7 & 6. Lo! I come with joy, to do
The Master's blessed will;
And serve his pleasure still:
And loving Mary's heart. 2 Careful without care I am,
Nor feel my happy toil;
Supported by his smile:
I do it to the Lord.
Dost all my burdens bear;
And fix it ever there;
Till all thy will be done. 4 O that all the art
And here thy glory see:
And see thy glorious face.
[L. B. 317.] 6 lines 8. CAPTAIN of Israel's host, and Guide Of all who seek the land above,
Beneath thy shadow we abide,
Our end the glory of the Lord. 2 By thy unerring Spirit led,
We shall not in the desert stray;
[s. B. 268.] 4 lines 6 & 2-8.
Where sin lulls all asleep;
And sail to heaven with thee and thine. 2 What though the seas are broad;
What though the waves are strong;
Distress me all along!
stormy wind, Compared with Christ, the sinner's Friend? 3 Christ is my Pilot wise;
My compass is his word:
While I have such a Lord;
To save me in the trying hour.
My soul, thy wings expand,
And fly to Jesus' breast:
Where winds and seas distress no more! 5 Come, heavenly Wind, and blow
A prosperous gale of grace,
: Then, in full sail, my port I'll find, And leave the world and sin behind.
C. M. The northern pole, and southern, rest
On God's supporting hand; Darkness and day, from east to west,
Move round at his command. 2 He bids the liquid waters flow
To their appointed deep;
And their own station keep.
And rule the boisterous deep;
The rolling billows sleep.
This work belongs to you;
How holy, just, and true. 623.
Of vast eternity;
Man's endless destiny. 2 Wreck'd in the storm which sin has raised,
The whole creation groans;
While fiery hills their lightnings blaze,
'Mid nature's dying moans. 3 But grace,-what wondrous grace has done!
Sinners, be not afraid;
And Christ the storm allay'd.
To Christ let sinners steer:
Millions have harbour'd here.

Of mortals here below;
Its sovereign virtue know.
Amidst our youthful bloom; "Twill fit us for declining age,
And for the awful tomb.
Be my Redeemer's throne;
His government to own.
Be join'd with godly fear; And all my conversation prove
My heart to be sincere. 5 Preserve me from the snares of sin,
Through my remaining days;
And in me let each virtue shine
To my Redeemer's praise.
Let warm affections rise:
To mount above the skies. 625.
C. M. RELIGION is a glorious light,
For man's salvation given: Faith's guiding lamp thro' nature's night;
It came from, leads to, heaven. 2 It beams in every sacred page
Of God's eternal truth; Illuminates the path of age,
And lights the steps of youth. 3 Religion—'tis to feel within,
Our stubborn wills subdued; The conscience purified from sin;
The evil heart renew'd. 4 Religion thus directs through time
The soul to joys above; Unveils eternity sublime,
To faith, and hope, and love. 5 O God! instruct us in the strife,
To win the Christian's prize:The crown of everlasting life,
The mansion of the skies. 6 Creator, Saviour, Father-thine
Are all our youthful powers; Make faith, and hope, and love divine,
Make pure Religion ours. 十 626.
