32. For a blessing in the Sanctuary. L. M.
(Psalm cxxxii. 7—10.)
Low on our knees before Him bend;
Here, on His worship, we attend.
Thou and Thy ark of strength, O Lord !
Speak, for we hearken to Thy word.
Joyful Thy chosen people be:
Let all be holiness to Thee. 33. For the profitable use of Scripture. C. M.
(Col. iii. 16.)
Behold Thy servants stand,
The guidance of Thy hand.
Dwell richly in each heart;
We never may depart.
Unfold its hidden store;
Its value more and more.
Shining in every page:
Our inmost souls engage.
O may we safely go
For a Prayerful spirit. (Prov. xvi. 1.) C. M. 1 LORD, teach us how to pray aright,
With reverence and with fear;
We may, we must draw near :
With broken, contrite hearts ;-
Truth in the inward parts:
Of godly sorrow give :
To see Thy face and live ;-
That can for sin atone!
On Christ--and Him alone :-
Though mercy long delay;
And trust Thee though Thou slay :
Thus strengthen’d with all might,
The infinite power of God. (Prov. xv. 3.) 1st P.M. 1 THE eye of the Lord is in every place;
Resistless His power! unbounded His grace !
Nor is there a danger He could not remove. 2 Have mercy, O God! our Father on high !
And teach us to live as under Thine eye;
To walk as possessing Thy help and Thy word. 3 It is not our skill, nor might of our arm,
Can guide us to heav'n or shield us from harm,
36. Exhortation to Praise. (Deut. vi. 4, 5.) S. M. 1 STAND up and bless the Lord,
Ye people of His choice;
With heart, and soul, and voice.
Above all blessing high-
And laud and magnify?
From His own altar brought,
And wing to heav'n each thought!
And His salvation ours;
With all our ransom'd pow'rs.
The Lord your God adore;
Henceforth, for evermore. 37. Love to the Sanctuary. (Psalm xlviii.) S. M.
1 GREAT is the Lord our God,
And let his praise be great :
His most delightful seat.
How beautiful they stand !
And bulwarks of our land.
We'll to His house repair;
And seek deliv'rance there.
Will guide us till we die;
And through eternity.
For Protection. (Psalm iv. 8.) L. M. 1 GLORY to Thee, my God, this night, For all the
blessings of the light; Keep me, o keep me! King of kings,
Under Thine own almighty wings !
The ills that I this day have done;
I, ere I sleep, at peace may be. 3 Teach me to live, that I may
dread The grave as little as my bed ; Teach me to die, that so I may
Rise glorious at the judgment day. 4 O may my soul on Thee repose,
And may sweet sleep mine eyelids close,
To serve my God when I awake. 5 When in the night I sleepless lie,
My soul with heavenly thoughts supply:
of darkness me molest. 6 Lord, let my soul for ever share
The bliss of thy paternal care;
To see Thy face, to sing Thy love! 39. For the Lord's Day. (Exod. xxix. 39.) 5th P.M. 1 SOON shall the evening star, with silver ray,
Shed its mild lustre on this sacred day;
The rites that holiness and heav'n ordain. 2 Still let each awful truth our thoughts engage,
That shines reveald on inspiration's page;
Which all who lavish shall lament at last. 3 O God our Saviour, in our hearts abide;
Thy blood redeem'd us, and Thy precepts guide;
Confidence in God. (Psalm xci.) L. M. 1 HE that hath made his refuge God,
Shall find a most secure abode;
Shall keep thee from the fowler's snare;
From birds of prey that seek their blood. 3 What, though a thousand at thy side,
At thy right hand ten thousand died ?
Among the dead, amidst the graves. 4 But if the fire, or plague, or sword,
Receive commission from the Lord
Their very pains and deaths are blest. 5 The sword, the pestilence, or fire,
Shall but fulfil their best desire;
And bring Thy children, Lord, to Thee. 41. For Acceptance with God. (Psalm exli.) L. M. 1 LORD, let my prayer like incense rise ;
And when I lift my hands to Thee,
Look down from heav'n, well-pleased, on me. 2 Set Thou a watch to keep my tongue;
Let not my heart to sin incline;
And make Thy pleasure ever mine. 3 Our eyes are unto Thee, O Lord ;
Behold us humbled in the dust;
Leave not our souls; in Thee we trust. 4 Redeem us, Lord, from all the snares,
With which the world surrounds our feet;
