TRIBUTE OF PRAISE. 7s & 6s.

(New.)

1. We bring no glittering trea-sures, No gems from earth's deep mine; We come, with simple

[ocr errors]

measures, To chant thy love di - vine.

O Lord, thy fa-vors shar - ing, Our voice of thanks we

raise; Father, ac

- cept our offer - ing, Our song of grateful praise, Our song of grateful praise.

2. The dearest gift of heaven,

Love's written word of truth,
To us is early given,

To guide our steps in youth.
We hear the wondrous story,

The tale of Calvary ;
We read of homes in glory,

From sin and sorrow free.

Tribute of Praise.

3. Saviour, bestow thy blessing;

Oh, teach us how to pray;
That each, thy fear possessing,
May tread life's onward way.
Then, where the pure are Jwelling,

We'll hope to meet again;
And, sweeter numbers swelling,

We 'll join to praise thy name.

HYMNS TO THE TUNE “TRIBUTE OF PRAISE.”

4. May God, with many a blessing,

Reward their toil and care; And hear them while addressing

His throne in fervent prayer:
And may his love constraining,

Our youthful spirits bow;
And grace, for ever reigning,

Our inmost souls endow.

78 & 6s. 3

Como join our Celebration, 1. Cone, join our celebration,

With ballowed songs of joy ; And on this glad occasion,

Your sweetest notes employ ; Parents and friends invited,

And teachers now are here, In purpose all united,

Our youthful hearts to cheer.

Millennium.

2. Thanks to the God of heaven

Kind guardian of our race-
For all the favors given,

Beneath his smiling face:
For health, and strength, and reason,

And friendship unalloyed;
And every pleasant season

In Sunday-schools enjoyed.

1. When shall the voice of singing

Flow joyfully along? When hill and valley ringing

With one triumphant song, Proclaim the contest ended,

And Him, who once was slain, Again to earth descended,

In righteousness to reign ?

8. Thanks for the kind protection

God's arm has thrown around;
And for that sweet affection,

He causes to abound,
In those who 're watching o'er us,

With many an anxious sigh,
And seeking to allure us

To peace and heavenly joy.

2. Then from the craggy mountains

The sacred shout shall fly;
And shady vales and fountains

Shall echo the reply;
High tower and lowly dwelling

Shall send the chorus round,
All hallelujah swelling

In one triumphant sound.

4. Just as I am-poor, wretched, blind:

Sight, riches, healing of the mind,
Yea, all I need, in thee to find,

O I amb of God, I come.

Just as I am,

5. Just as I am, thou wilt receive,

Wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve, Because thy promise I believe

O Lamb of God, I come.

Just as I am, thy love, I own,
Has broken every barrier down;
Now to be thine, and thine alone,

O Lamb of God! I come !

Mourning with Submission.
1. The God of love will sure indulge

The flowing tear, the heaving sigh
When his own children fall around,

When tender friends and kindred die. 2. Yet not one anxious, murmuring thought

Should with our mourning passions blend; Nor would our bleeding hearts forget

Th’ almighty, ever-living Friend. & Beneath a numerous train of ills,

Our feeble flesh and heart may fail;
Yet shall our hope in thee, our God,
O'er every gloomy fear prevail

. 4 Our Father God! to thee we look,

Our Rock, our Portion and our Friend;
And on thy covenant love and truth,

Our sinking souls shall still depend.

2. "T is there I'm always taught to pray

That God would bless me day by day;
And safely guard, and guide me still,

And help me to obey his will.
3. 'T is there I sing a Saviour's love,

Which brought him from his throne above,
And made him suffer, bleed, and die,

For sinful creatures, such as I. 4. From all the lessons I obtain,

May I a store of knowledge gain ;
And early seek my Saviour's face,

And gain from him supplies of grace. 6. And then, through life's remaining days,

I'll love to sing my Saviour's praise ;
And bless the kindness and the grace,

That brought me to this sacred place. 8

The Cross of Christ.
1. WHEN I survey the wondrous cross

On which the Prince of glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,

And pour contempt on all my pride. 2. See from his head, his hands, his feet,

Sorrow and love flow mingled down; Did e'er such love and sorrow meet,

Or thorns compose so rich a crown! 3. Were the wbole realm of nature mine,

That were a present far too small;
Love so amazing, so divine,

Demands my soul, my life, my all

L. M. 7

Love of the Sabbath,
1. I LOVE to have the Sabbath come,

For then I rise and quit my home;
And baste to school with cheerful air,
To meet my dearest teachers there.

The Lore of Jesus. 2. How kind is Jesus, O how good!

'Twas for my soul he shed his blood; For children's sake he was reviled,

For Jesus loves a little child. 8. When I offend, by thought or tongue,

Omit the right, or do the wrong;
If I repent, he's reconciled,

For Jesus loves a little child. 4. To me may Jesus now impart,

Although so young, a gracious heart;
Alas ! I'm oft by sin defiled,
Yet Jesus loves a little child.

The Lambs of Jesus.
1. The lambs of Jesus—who are they,

But children that believe and pray?
That keep God's laws and ask his grace,

And seek a heavenly dwelling-place ! 2. The lambs of Jesus ! they are meek,

The words of peace and truth they speak;
To all God's creatures they are kind,

And, like their Lord, of gentle mind 3. The lambs of Ji sus! oh! that we

Might of that blessed number be!
Lord! take us early to thy love,
And lead us to the fold above.
