And seeking Thee, their hearts inflame

To seek Thee more and more.
5. Thee may our tongues for ever bless;

Thee may we love alone;
And ever in our lives express

The image of Thine own. Amen.

“For My memorial is sweeter than honey, and Mine inheritance than the honey comb They that eat Me shall yet be hungry, and they that drink Me shall yet be thirsty." Ecclus. xxiv, 20, 21. *33 O JESU, Thou the Glory art

Of angel worlds above;
Thy Name is music to the heart,

Entrancing it with love.
2. Celestial Sweetness unalloyed,

Who eat Thee, hunger still;
Who drink of Thee, still feel a void,

Which none but Thou can fill. 3. Jesu, in mercy hear the sighs

Which unto Thee we send;
To Thee our inmost spirit cries,

Our Life, our Hope, our End !
4. Stay with us, Lord, and with Thy light

Illume the soul's abyss ;
Dispel the darkness of our night,

And fill the world with bliss. 5. O blessed Jesu, Who Thyself

To loving hearts hast shown,
Thee, with the Father evermore,
And Holy Ghost, we own. Amen.

* For an Evening Service..

“ Neither is there salvation in any other; for there is none other Name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved "-Acts, iv. 12. 34 JESUS! Name of wondrous Love,

Name all other names above!
Name, at which must every knee

Bow in deep humility !
2. Jesus! Name decreed of old,

With the gracious tidings told
To the Virgin's wondering ear,

When the Angel calmed her fear. 3. Only Name beneath the heav'n,

That to mortal man is giv'n,
Whereby he, to sin enslav'd,

Bursts his fetters and is sav'd!
4. Jesus! Name of wondrous Love,

Human Name of God above!
Pleading only this, we flee,

Helpless, 0 our God, to Thee! 5. All who dwell beneath the sky,

Praise the Name of God most high;
Glorify, ye heavenly host,
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen.

“ He arose and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm."--S. Matt. viii, 26. 35 THE Twelve were mute with awe and dread,

And baffled in their skill;
But ONE was there who rose and said

To wind and waves, “ Be still !"
2. He spake: the tempest, at His word,

Fled from the troubled sky;

The raging billows knew their Lord,

And fell beneath His eye.
3. So, Jesu, midst the tempest dark

Be present still to save;
Bring succour to the labouring bark,

Rebuke the rising wave.
4. Still, 'mid the wild and wintry gale,

When Death rides o'er the sea,
And strength and earthly daring fail,

May safety come from Thee.
5. And, 0, when anger, envy, pride,
Our bosoms frail would fill

,
Lord, quell Thou passion's raging tide,

And bid the storm be still. 6. To Thee, in glory manifest,

Thou Lord of winds and sea,
With Father and with Spirit blest,

High laud for ever be! Amen.

“ The harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.

The Son of Man shall send forth His angels, and they shall gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity."-S. Matt. xiii. 39-41,

36 THE angel comes, he comes to reap

The harvest of the Lord;
O'er all the earth, with fatal sweep,

Wide waves his flaming sword.
2. And who are they in sheaves to bide

The fire of vengeance bound?
The tares, whose rank luxuriant pride

Chok'd the fair crop around.

3. And who are they reserv'd in store

God's treasure-house to fill ?
The wheat, a hundredfold that bore

Amid surrounding ill.
4. O King of mercy, give us power

The fiery wrath to flee;
In Thy destroying angel's hour

O gather us to Thee.
5. To Jesus, Judge of quick and dead,

All glory now be giv'n;
The Son of Man, the Church's Head,

The First in earth and heav'n! Amen..

Septuagesima. “I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God; for true and righteous are His judgments;

And again they said, Alleluia.”_Rev, xix. 1-3.. 37 ALLELUIA, song of sweetness,

Voice of joy, eternal lay;
Alleluia is the anthem

Of the Choirs in Heavenly day,..
Which the Angels sing, abiding

In the House of God alway. 2. Alleluia, Salem, Mother,

'Tis thy song of gladness deep;:
Alleluia, in thy mansions

Strain so joyous ne'er can sleep;
Exiled here by Babel's rivers,
We must needs sit down and

weep... 3. Alleluia we deserve not

Here to chant for evermore;
Alleluia our transgressions

Bid us now for grief give o'er ;
For the holy time is coming

When our sins we must deplore. 4. Trinity of endless glory,

Hear Thy people as they cry;
Grant us all to keep Thy Easter

In our Home beyond the sky,
There to Thee our Alleluia

Singing everlastingly. Amen.

All have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”Rom. iii. 23. 38 MAKER of earth, to Thee alone

Perpetual rest belongs,
And angel choirs around Thy throne,

May pour their endless songs. 2. But we, a sinless race no more,

And doom'd to toil and pain -
Can we upon an alien shore

Echo the heav'nly strain? 3. Father, Whose promise binds Thee still

To heal the suppliant throng,
Grant us to mourn the deeds of ill

That banish us so long ;
4. And, mourning, grant us faith to rest

Upon Thy love and care,
Till Thou restore us, with the blest

The song of heav'n to share. 5. Thy new creation, Lord, direct,

Till fixed above secure;
O Father, from its foes protect;

O cleanse it, Spirit pure. Amen.
