Page 45 - SWEET is the work, my God, my King, To praise thy name, give thanks and sing ; To show thy love by morning light, And talk of all thy truth at night.
Page 164 - Now the shades of night are gone ; Now the morning light is come ; Lord ! may we be thine today ; Drive the shades of sin away. 2 Fill our souls with heavenly light, Banish doubt, and clear our sight : In thy service, Lord, today, May we stand, and watch, and pray. 3 Keep our haughty passions bound : Save us from our foes around : Going out and coming in, Keep us safe from every sin.
Page 63 - Could we but climb where Moses stood, And view the landscape o'er, Not Jordan's stream, nor death's cold flood, Should fright us from the shore.
Page 321 - GOD be merciful unto [ us and | bless us | and show us the light of His countenance, and be [ merci- - ful | un-to | us; 2 That Thy way may be known up- | on — | earth || Thy saving | health a- | mong all | nations. 3 Let the people praise \ Thee O | God || yea let all the | peo-ple | praise Thee.
Page 45 - And while the lamp holds out to burn The vilest sinner may return.
Page 223 - Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal. 2 Joy of the desolate, light of the straying, Hope of the penitent, fadeless and pure, Here speaks the Comforter, tenderly saying, • " Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot cure." 3 Here see the Bread of life ; see waters flowing Forth from the throne of God, pure from above ; Come to the feast of love ; come, ever knowing Earth has no sorrow but heaven can remove.
Page 58 - OH ! for a closer walk with God, A calm and heavenly frame, — A light to shine upon the road That leads me to the Lamb...
Page 317 - O be joyful in the Lord, all ye lands : serve the Lord with gladness, and come before his presence with a song. Be ye sure that the Lord he is God : it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves ; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
Page 240 - His sovereign power, without our aid, Made us of clay, and formed us men ; And when like wandering sheep we strayed, He brought us to his fold again.
Page 182 - LOVE divine, all love excelling, Joy of heaven, to earth come down ! Fix in us thy humble dwelling, All thy faithful mercies crown ; Jesus', thou art all compassion, Pure, unbounded love thou art ; Visit us with thy salvation, Enter every trembling heart.
