HYMN 53.

The Seasons crowned witn Goodness.

Psalm lxv. 11.

ETERNAL source of every joy I
Well may thy praise our lips em-
While in thy temple we appear, [ploy,
To hail thee, sovereign of the year.
2 Wide as the wheels of nature roll,
Thy ha ud supportsand guides the whole:
The sun is taught by thee to rise,
And darkness when to veil the skies.
.'J The flowery spring at thy command,
Perfumes the air, and paints the land;
The summer rays with rigour shine
To raise the corn and cheer the vine.

4 Thy hand in autumn richly pours Through at) our coasts redundant stores; And winters, soften'd by thy care,

No more the face of horror wear.

5 Seasons, aad months, and weeks, and

days, Demand successive songs of praise; And he the grateful homage paid, With morning light and evening shade.

6 Here in thy house let incense rise,
And circling sabbaths bless our eyes,
Till to those lofty heights we soar,
Where days and years revolve no more.

HYMN 54.
A Funeral Thought.

HARK! from the tombs, a mournful my ears, attend the cry: [sound, '■ Ye living men, come view the ground '* where you must shortly"lie.

2 "Princes, this clay must be your bed, "in spile of all your towers!

"The tall, the wise, the reverend head t' must tie as low as ours."

3 Great God! is this our certain doom? and are we still secure?

Still walking downward to the tomb; and yet prepare no more?

4 Grattt us the power of quickening

grace, to fit our souls to fly; Then, when we drop this dying flesh, we'll rise above the sky. HYMN 55. A Charity Hymn.

LORD of life, oil praise excelling, thou, in glory unconnned, DeignV to make thy humble dwelling with the poor of humble mind.

2 As thy love, through all creation, heams like thy diffusive light;

So the scorn'd and humble station shrinks hefore thine equal sight.

3 Thus thy care, for all providing, warm'd thy faithful prophet's tong-ie;

Who, the lot of all deciding, to thy chosen Israel sung

4 Wlien thine harvestyic/ustnee pleasure, thou the golden sheaf shalt bind;

To the poor helongs the treasure
of the scatter'd ears hehind.
These thy God ordains to bless
The widow and the fatherless.

5 When thine olive plants increasing,
pour their plenty o'er thy plain,

Grateful thou shalt take the blessing but not search the bow again. Chorus. These, &c.

6 When thy favour'd vintage flowing, gladdens thy autumnal scene,

Own the bounteous hand hestowing, but thy vines the poor shall glean Chorus..' These, &.c.

7 Still we read thy word declaring mercy, Lord, thine own decree \

Mercy, every sorrow sharing, warms the heart resembling thee.

8 StlU the orphan and the stranger, still the widow owns thy care,

Screen'd by thee in every danger,
heard by thee in every prayer.

Hallelujah, Amen*
HYMN 56.
At the Ordination or Institution of a

FATHER of mercies! in thy house
We pay our homage and our vows
Whilst with a grateful heart we share
These pledges of our Saviour's care.

2 The Saviour, when to heaven he rose, In splendid triumph o'er his foes, Scatter'd his gifts on men helow,

And wide his royal bounties flow.

3 Hence sprang the Apostle's honour'd

Sacred beyond heroic fame;
Hence dictates the prophetic sage,
And hence the evangelic page.

4 In lower forms to bless our eyes,
Pastors from hence and Teachers rise;
Who, tho' with feebler rays they shin*,
Stilt mark a long extended line.

5 From Christ their varied gifts ftmve. And fed by him, their graces live; Whilst guarded by his potent hand, Amidst the rage of hell they stand.

6 So shall the bright succession run Through all the courses of th sun, Whilst unborn churches, by their care, Shall rise and flourish large and fair.

7 Jesus our Lord, their hearts shall know, The spring whence all these blessings

flow; Pastors and people shout his praise, Through the long round of endless days', HYMN 57. Prayer for Ministers.

Suppress their fear, inflame their zeaL

4 Teach them to sow the precious seed,
Teach them thy chosen flock to feed; \

5 Let thronging multitudes around,
Hear from their lips the joyful sound,
In humble strains thy grace implore,
And feel thy new-creating [lower.

Distressed souls forget their pains \
Let light thro'distant realms he surea
And Zion rear her drooping bead.
