at laid the cor-ner stone, And heaved its pil - lars one by one.

938. L. M.

2. Come as a Shepherd; guard and keep

This fold from hell, and earth, and sin; 1. The perfect world, by Adam trod,

Nourish the lambs, and feed the sheep, Was the first temple built by God;

The wounded heal, the lost bring in. His fiat laid the corner-stone,

3. Come as a Watchman; take thy stand And heaved its pillars one by one.

Upon thy tower amidst the sky,

And when the sword comes on the land 2. He hung its starry roof on high

Call us to fight, or warn to fly.
The broad, illimitable sky;
He spread its pavement, green and bright, 4. Come as an Angel, hence to guide
And curtained it with morning light.

A band of pilgrims on their way,

That, safely walking at thy side, 3. The mountains in their places stood,

We fail not, faint not, turn, nor stray. The sea—the sky-and “all was good;" And when its first pure praises rang,

5. Come as a Teacher, sent from God, Tho "morning stars together sang."

Charged Ilis whole counsel to declare; Lift o'er our ranks the prophet's rod,

While we uphold thy hands with prayer. 4. Lord, 't is not ours to make the sea,

And earth, and sky, a house for Theo; 6. Come as a Messenger of peace,
But in Thy sight our off'ring stands-

Filled with the Spirit, fired with love; An humbler temple, “made with hands." Live to behold our large increase,

And diu to meet us all above. 5. We can not bid the morning star

MONTGOMERY. To sing how bright Thy glories are; But, Lord, if Thou wilt meet us here,

DOXOLOGY. L. M. Thy praise shall be the Christian's tear.


O SAVING Victim! opening wide

The gates of Ileaven to man below! 939. L.M.

Our foes press on from every side

Thinc aid supply, Thy strengtlı bestow. 1. We bid thee welcome in the name

To Thy great name be endless praise, Of Jesus, our exalted Head

Immortal Godhead, One in Three! Come as a servant, so He came,

Oh, grant us endless length of days,
And we receive thee in His stead.

In our true native land, with Thee!



1. O Thou, whose own vast temple stands, Builto - ver earth and sea, Ac-cept the


walls that human hands Have raised to worship Thee! Have raised to worship Thee!

940. C. M.

5. O holy trust! O endless rest!

Like the beloved John, 2. Lord, from Thine inmost glory send,

To lean upon the Saviour's breast,
Within these courts to bide,

And thus to journey on!
The peace that dwelleth, without end,

ALTERED FROM LONGFELLOW. Serenely by Thy side ! 3. May erring minds that worship hero

942. C. M.
Be taught the better way;
And they who mourn, and they who fear, 1. ANGELS, where'er wo go, attend
Be strengthened as they pray.

Our steps, whate'er betide,

With watchful care their charge defend, 4. May faith grow firm, and love grow warm, And evil turn aside.

And pure devotion rise,
While round these hallowed walls the storm 2. Myriads of bright cherubic bands,
Of earth-born passion dies.

Sent by the King of kings,
BRYANT. Rejoico to bear us in their hands,

And shade us with their wings.
941. C. M.

3. Jehovah's charioteers surround; 1. The Saviour said, “Yet one thing more,

The ministerial choir
If thou would'st perfect be,

Encamp, where'er his heirs are found, Give all thou hast unto the poor,

And form our wall of fire.
And come and follow me.

4. Ten thousand offices unseen 2. Within this temple, Christ again

For us they gladly do,
Those sacred words hath said ;

Deliver in the furnace keen,
Unseen Ilis hands to-day have been

And safe escort us through.
Laid on a youug man's head.

5. But thronging round, with busiest love 3. Henceforth, beside him on his way

They guard the dying breast,
The unseen Christ shall move,

The lurking fiend far off remove,
That he may lean on Him and say,

And sing our souls to rest. "Dost Thou, dear Lord, approve ?"

6. And when our spirits we resign, 4. Near at the marriage feast shall be,

On outstretched wings they bear, To make the scene more fair;

And lodge us in the arms Divine,
Near, in the dark Gethsemane,

And leave us ever there.
Of pain and midnight prayer.

1. FROM Greenland's icy mountains,

From India's coral strand,
Where Afric's sunny fountains

Roll down their golden sand;
From many an ancient river,

From many a palmy plain
They call us to deliver

Their land from error's chain.

4. Waft, waft, ye winds, his story,

And you, ye waters roll,
Till, like a sea of glory,

It spreads from pole to pole;
Till o'er our ransomed nature

The Lamb for sinners slain, Redeemer, King, Creator,

In bliss returns to reign.


2. What though the spicy breezes

Blow soft o'er Ceylon's isle;
Though every prospect pleases,

And only man is vile:
In vain with lavish kindness

The gifts of God are strown;
The heathen, in his blindness,

Bows down to wood and stone ! 3. Shall we, whose souls are lighted

With wisdom from on high,
Shall we to men benighted

The lamp of life deny ?
Salvation, 0 salvation !

The joyful sound proclaim,
Till each remotest nation

Has learned Messiah's name.

914. 75 & 6s. 1. Now be the gospel banner

In every land unfurl'd;
And be the shout hosanna

Re-echoed through the world:
Till ev'ry isle and nation,

Till every tribe and tongue,
Receive the great salvation,

And join the happy throng. 2. Yes, Thou shalt reign for ever,

O Jesus, King of kings!
Thy light, Thy love, Thy favor,

Each ransomed captive sings:
The isles for Thee are waiting,

The deserts learn Thy praise,
The hills and valleys greeting,
The song responsive raise.

2. He 'll shield you with a wall of fire,

With flaming zeal your breasts inspire;
Bid raging winds their fury cease,

And hush the tempest into peace. 3. And when your labors all are o'er,

Then we shall meet to part no more;
Meet, with the blood-bought throng to

And crown our Jesus Lord of all.

PRATT'S COLL. 916. L. M. 1. TRIUMPHANT Zion! lift thy head

From dust, and darkness, and the dead !
Though humbled long-awake at length,

And gird thee with thy Saviour's strength! 2. Put all thy beauteous garments on,

And let thy excellence be known;
Decked in the robes of righteousness,

The world thy glories shall confess. 3. No more shall foes unclean invade,

And fill thy hallowed walls with dread;
No more shall hell's insulting host

Their victory and thy sorrows boast. 4. God, from on bigh, has heard thy prayer;

His hand thy ruins shall repair;
Nor will thy watchful Monarch cease
To guard thee in eternal peace.

917. L. M.
1. O SPIRIT of the living God,

In all Thy plenitude of grace,
Where'er the foot of man hath trod,

Descend on our apostate race.

2. Give tongues of fire, and hearts of love,

To preach the reconciling word;
Give power and unction from above,

Where'er the joyful sound is heard. 3. Be darkness, at Thy coming, light;

Confusion-order, in Thy path;
Souls without strength, inspire with might;

Bid mercy triumph over wrath. 4. Baptize the nations; far and nigh

The triumphs of the cross record;
The name of Jesus glorify,

Till every kindred call Him, Lord. 5. O Spirit of the Lord! prepare

All the round earth her God to meet
Breathe Thou abroad like morning air,
Till hearts of stone begin to beat.

MONTGOMERY. 948. L. M. 1. Aru of the Lord ! awake, awake!

Put on Thy strength! the nations shake!
And let the world, adoring, see

Triumphs of mercy wrought by Thec. 2. Say to the heathen, from Thy throno

“I am Jehovah-God alone!"
Thy voice their idols shall consound,

And cast their altars to the ground. 3. Almighty God! Thy grace proclaim

In every iand, of every name;
Let Zion's time of favor come;

Oh! bring the tribes of Israel home. 4. Arm of the Lord! awake, awake!

Put on Thy strength! the nations shake!
Let hostile powers before Thee fall,
And crown the Saviour Lord of all.

Mercy and justice here combine, 2. Hail, Jesus! all victorious Lord !

Goodness and truth harmonious join,

Grows and extends the work begun; In endless day.

When shall the new creation rise 4. There we shall in full chorus join,

O'er every land beneath the sun ? With saints and angels, all combine 2. When, in the sabbath of His love, To sing of His redeeming love,

Shall God from all His labors rest; When rolling years shall cease to move, And bending from His throne above, And this siiall be our theme above,

Again pronounce His creatures blest ? In endless day.

3. As sang the morning stars of old, MEDLEY.

The kingdom, power, and glory give. Nor longer dare tbo grace refuse ;
