3 Vain, sinful man ! creation's Lord
Thy golden off'rings well may spare :
HYMN 34. L. M.
The Christian sabbath.
And we the sabbath's call attend :
And learn for ever to be blest,
To heav'n a grateful sacrifice;
Which none but they who feel it know. 3 This holy calm within the breast,
Prepares for that eternal rest
The end of cares, and toils, and pains. 4 In varied scenes, both old and new,
With joy, great God ! thy works we view;
In hope thy future mercies taste. 5 In holy duties, let the day,
In holy pleasures, pass away;
HYMN 35. C. M.
The sabbath of the soul.
Of earth and folly born!
From this celestial morn.
To feel your harsh control;
Ye shall not violate, this day,
The sabbath of my soul.
Let fires of vengeance dio;
A Lord's day Hymn.
Did from the dead arise ;
In anthems to the skies.
From this celestial road;
soul from God. 3 Think of the splendours of that place,
The joys that are on high; Nor meanly rest contented here,
With worlds beneath the sky.
To heav'n their souls ascend ;
As Father and as Friend.
My comfort and defence, When the sick couch shall be
my And death shall call me hence,
HYMN 37. L. M.
A hymn for the Lord's day.
To praise thy name, give thanks and sing:
3 Sweet is the day of sacred rest; No mortal care sball seize
breast : My heart shall triumph in the Lord,
And bless his works, and bless his word. 3 And I shall share a glorious part, When grace
hath well refin'd my heart, When doubts and fears no more remain,
To break my inward peace again.
All I desir'd or wish'd below:
The Lord's day morning.
Aud pours increasing day.
The heathen world in gloom !
Triumphant from the tomb !
And loud hosannas sung ;
And praise on ev'ry tongue.
To hail this welcome moro ;
AIL, happy morn! whose early ray
Bebeld the Saviour rise;
To our rejoicing eyes.
2 On this blest morn, birth-day of hope !
Let not one soul be sad;
And bids bis saints be glad.
In notes barmonious sing;
By your victorious King.
Of his attractive love !
HYMN 40. P. M.
Attendance upon religious institutions.
Whose goodness heav'o and earth proclaim,
Who guards me thro' the night. 2 Then in his churches to appear,
d pay my humble worship there,
Shall be my sweet employ:
With pure and holy joy.
Of my departing Lord;
Miss DAY. c2
HYMN 41. L. M.
The wisdom of God.
Or search an uncreated mind?
As one brought up and nurs’d of God.
Or mountains in the balance weigh’d,
Drew ev'ry golden line of truth.
Her hand the mighty deep confines ;
And mark'd their circuit through the year. 4 The diff'rent seasons did ordain,
The wat'ry clouds to give us rain,
They order keep, since time begun.
They sure were-fix'd for endless days;
She pour'd the richest of her grace. 6 In them ber joys excelled lar,
Tho' she controlled ev'ry star;
HYMN 42. L. M. The reign of God--- From the Revelations, and Isaiah
HEN God descends, with men to dwelt,
And all creation makes anew ;
the matchless wonders view ? 2 Zion, the desolate, shall sing,
The wilderness with roses bloom ;
