5 Our thoughts are lost in rev’rend awe ;
We love, and we adore ;
So much of God before.
In ibat immortal song;
Acts. X. 42.
A cordial for our fears.
At hell's dark door we lay ;
To see a heav'oly day.
The spacious earth around;
HYMN 87. P. M.
Tit. iii. 5.
How small thy faith appears !
Than all my doubts and fears.
Though dark may be my frame;
Eternally the same:
My soul through many changes goes;
His love no variation knows.
And perfectly perform
lo me a sinful worm :
Thy spirit will not let me go 4 The bowels of thy grace
At first did freely move :
And feel that God is love.
HYMN 88. L. M.
3. Ixxvi. 15.
And sing thy great Redeemer's praise ;
His loving kindness, O how free! 2 He saw me ruim'd in the fall,
Yet lov'd me notwithstanding all !
His loving kindness. O bow great!
Though earth, and bell, my way oppose,
His loving kindness, O how strong ! 4 When trouble, like a gloomy cloud,
Has gather'd thick, and thunder'd loud,
His loving kindness, O how good ! 5 Soon shall I pass the gloomy vale,
Soon all my mortal pow'rs must fail;
6 Then let me mount and soar away,
To the bright world of endless day;
HYMN 89. L. M.
Ixxxiv. 12. Rom. vii. 24, 25. Heb. vi. 19.
Irradiate, warm, and guide my heart !
If thine enlivening beams deparı!
Appears to these desiring eyes ;
“ The cheerful morn will never rise ?" 3 O let me pot despairing mouro,
Though gloomy darkness spreads the sky;
And night with all its horrors fly. 4 O, for the bright, the joyful day,
When hope shall in assurance die!

? Why beaves my heart the anxious sigh! Can sov'reign goodness be unkind ?
Am I not safe if God be nigh? 2 He holds all nature in his hand :
That gracious hand on which I live,
And has immortal joys to give.
On bim alone my hopes recline ;
WHY sinks my weak, desponding mind ?
The wond'rous glories of his name,
How wide they spread! how bright they shine! 4 Infinite wisdom ! boundless power!
Uochanging faithfulness and love!
HYMN 91. S, M.
Hab. iii. 17, 18.
To form a sacred song;
With music pass along.
How strait the path appears,
How open and how fair !
No fierce destroyer there. 3 But flow'rs of paradise
In rich profusion spring;
And dear companions sing. 4 See Salem's golden spires
In beauteous prospect rise ;
Which sparkle through the skies.
All honour to his name,
Who marks the shining way;

As we journey, sweetly sing ;
2 Ye are trav'lling home to God,
In the ways the Fathers trod;
ye Soon their happiness sball see. 3 0, ye banished seed, be glad!
Christ our Advocate is made!
Brother to our souls becomes.
You op Jesus' throne shall rest :
your seat is now prepar’d, There your kingdom and reward. 5 Fear not, brethren, joyful stand
On the borders of your land :
Bids you, undismay'd, go on. 6 Lord, obediently we go,
Gladly leaving all below;

'Tis music to mine ear ;
That earth and beaven might hear.
My transport and my trust;
And gold is sordid dust.
In thee doth richly meet ;
