HYMNS TO THE TUNE “THE LOVE OF JESUS."
2. I've found the winding path of sin
A rugged path to travel in;
The land my Saviour bought for me. 3. Farewell, dear friends, I may not stay,
The home I seek is far away ;
This land is not the land for me.

To praise thy name, give thanks, and sing;
And talk of all thy truth at night. 2. Sweet is the day of sacred rest,
No mortal cares shall seize my breast :
Like David's harp of solemn sound! 8. My heart shall triumph in my Lord,
And bless his works, and bless his word ;
How deep thy counsels ! how divine ! 4. But I shall share a glorious part,
When grace hath well refined my heart,
Like holy oil, to cheer my head.
All I desired or wished below;
He gently knocks, has knocked before;
You treat no other friend so ill. 2. Oh! lovely attitude-He stands
With melting heart, and loaded hands :
This matchless kindness to His foes! 3. But will He prove a friend indeed ?
He will—the very Friend you need;
With garments dyed on Calvary.
His feet, departed, ne'er return;

4. Shall we ever rise to dwell
Where immortal praises swell i
Where eternal Sabbaths glow ! 6. Yes :—that rest our own may be,
All the good shall Jesus see ;
As ye journey, sweetly sing ;
Glorious in his works and ways
In the way the fathers trod;

While from pains and sorrows free;
And the clouds of life are few.
Thou wilt chase each doubt and fear;
When the stars shall fade and flee. 6. Now to thee, O Lord! we come,
In our morning's early bloom ;
