1 Morning Hymn. L. M. Luton.

Hebron. 1 Our Father, here again we raise

To thee our morning hymn of praise,
For all the joys thy smiles afford,
This sacred day, thy holy word.

2 We thank thee, Father, that to thee

Again we bend the lowly knee,
That here in peace and prayer we stand,
Upheld by an almighty hand.

3 Whate'er we do, where'er we be,

Keep us from sin and error free;
Thy Sabbaths may we so improve,
As best to win our Father's love.

4 So shall we then, when life shall end

A nobler, holier Sabbath spend ;
Where thy good children all shall be,
Joined in one family with thee.


Commencing Hymn. C. M. Clarendon.

Hummel. 1 We come in childhood's innocence,

We come, as children, free!
We offer up, o God! our hearts

In trusting love to thee.

2 Well may we bend, in solemn joy,

At thy bright courts above ;-
Well may the grateful child rejoice,

In such a Father's love.

3 In joy we wake, in peace we sleep,

Šafe from all midnight harms,
Not folded in an angel's wings,

But in a Father's arms.

4 We come not as the mighty come ;

Not as the proud we bow;
But as the pure in heart should bend,

Seek we thine altars now.

5 “ Forbid them not,” the Saviour said ;

In speechless rapture dumb,
We hear the call-we seek thy facem
Father! we come-we come!


3 Commencing Hymn. 7's M. 61. In the Cottage.

Sabbath. 1 SAFELY through another week,

God has brought us on our way;
Let us now a blessing seek,

Waiting in his courts to-day.
Day of all the week the best,
Emblem of eternal rest!

2 Mercies, multiplied each hour,

Through our lives, our praise demand ;
Guarded by thy mighty power,
Fed and guided by thy hand.
Yet ungrateful we have been,

Paying back these gifts with sin.
8 Lord, we pray for pardoning grace,

In our dear Redeemer's name :
Sin remove, and in its place
Give us virtue's purest flame;
Thus, from all our sins set free,
May we rest at last with thee.


Commencing Hymn. 7 & 6's M. Atterbury.

Missionary Hymn. 1 ASSEMBLED in the morning,

At this our Sunday school,
We would, our faith adorning,

Observe this sacred rule-
That, as our God's a Spirit,

Our spirits should adore ;
That we may thus inherit

The blessings we implore.
2 And first, our sins confessing,

With penitential tear,
We'd supplicate a blessing

On this our meeting here :
And then for those who teach us,

Pure light from Thee above,

That they with power may reach us,

The power of holy love.

3 Preserve us from temptation ;

From idle words and play ;
And let thine approbation

Attend us every day.
0, may we give our parents

Obedience from the heart;
Be kind to our companions,

And love to all impart.

4 0, grant thy special favor,

That we may know thy truth,
And imitate the SAVIOUR,

In age as well as youth ;
So when we reach the valley

That leads us down to death,
In thee our trust reposing,
Yield up in hope our breath.


Commencing Hymn. C. M. Peterboro'.

Clarendon. 1 0 LORD, another week is flown,

And we, a youthful band,
Are met once more before thy throne,

To bless thy fostering hand.

2 And wilt thou lend a listening ear

To praises low as ours?
Thou wilt! for thou dost love to hear

The song which meekness pours.
3 And, Jesus, thou thy smiles wilt deign,

As in thy name we pray ;

For thou didst bless the infant train,

And we are weak as they.

4 O let thy grace perform its part,

And bid our passions cease ;
And shed abroad in every heart

Thine everlasting peace.

5 Thus chasten'd, cleans'd, entirely thine,

A flock by Jesus led;
The Sun of Holiness shall shine

In glory on our head.


6 Commencing Hymn. 6& 4's M. America.

Italian Hymn.
1 COME, thou Almighty King !
Help us thy name to sing !

Help us to praise!
Father, all-glorious,
O’er all victorious,
Come and reign over us,

Ancient of days!

2 Come, thou all-gracious Lord !
By heaven and earth adored,

Our prayer attend !
Come, and thy children bless;
Give thy good word success;
Make thine own holiness

On us descend.

3 Never from us depart;
Rule thou in every heart,

Hence, evermore !
Thy sovereign majesty
