Here rest, my weary heart !
Here cleave, my warmest love! Till the communion be complete
In nobler scenes above.
CHRISTIAN HOPE AND SECURITY.
I'M not ashamed to own my Lord,
Nor to defend his cause,
The glory of his cross
His name is all iny trust;
Nor let my hope be lost.
And he can well secure
Till the decisive hour.
Before his Father's face ; And in the new Jerusalem, Appoint my soul a place. 130.
C. M. BLESS'D be the everlasting God,
The Father of our Lord; Be his abundant mercy praised,
His majesty adored.
From the dark chambers of the grave,
He raised our Saviour up;
Unto a lively hope.

So we his members must.
For us against that day,
And fadeth not away.

C. M. WHY should I think of pain or woe,
Or feel at death dismay ; I've Canaan's goodly land in view,
The realm of endless day, Jerusalem, my happy home;
(A name so dear to me!) My life and labors soon shall close In
peace, and rest in thee. Yea, soon, thou city of my God,
Shall I thy courts ascend,
And meetings never end.
To join apostles, martyrs, saints,
Who 'round my Saviour stand.
To be at thy right hand !
Who makes our cause his own; The hope that rests upon his word
Can ne'er be overthrown.
And feeble is each arm,
Beyond the reach of harm.
Or, fainting, shall not die; Jesus, the strength of every saint,
Will aid us from on high. As surely as he overcame,
And triumphed o'er the foe;
Shall triumph in him too.
Our Saviour and our King, With all the saints below the skies
We huinble praises bring.
His counsel and his care,
He will present our souls,
Unblemished and complete,
With joys divinely great.
Shall meet around the throne;
And wear the promised crown.
The Saviour sits divinely great ;
C. M. THE Lord has promised good to me,
His word my hope secures;
As long as life endures.
And mortal life shall cease,
A life of joy and peace.
The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
Down from the willows take ; And loud in praise of love divine, Bid every string awake.

Shall change his love divine.
When Jesus we shall see ;
To all eternity.
Salvation all is thine :
And all thy works divine. 137.

Our faithful, unchangeable friend ; Whose love is as large as power,
And neither knows measure nor end. Tis Jesus, the First and the Last,
Whose spirit shall guide us safe home; We praise him for all that is past,
We trust him for all that's to come.
