8 2 Kno.wledge, alas ! 'tis all in vain.
And all in vain our fear ;
Our stubborn sins virill fight and reign,
If love be absent there.
o 3 'Tis love that makes our cheerful feet

In swift obedience move ;
e The devils know, and tremble too, —

But Satan cannot love.
o 4 This is the grace that lives, and sings,
When faith and hope shall cease ;
'Tis this shall strike our joyful strings

In the sweet realms of bliss.
5 Before we quite forsake our clay.

Or leave this dark abode,
The wings of love bear us away,
To see our smiling God.

HYMN 39. C. M. Canterbury, [b]

The Shortness and Misery of Life.

1 [/~\UI^ days, alas ! our mortal days

\^ Are short, and wretched too :
Evil andfeio, the patriarch says,
And well the patriarch knew.]
e 2 'Tis but at best a narrow bound.
That heaven allows to men ;
And pains and sins run through the round
Of threescore years and ten.
o 3 Well, if ye must be sad and few,
Run on, my days, in haste }
Moments of sin, and months of woe.
Ye cannot fly too fast.
— 4 Let heavenly love prepare my soul,

And call her to the skies, —
o Where years of long salvation roll.
And glory never dies.

Since Christ and we are one .''
•^-Thy God is faithful to his saints^-

j3 Sight of God mortifies us to the World.

1 [TTP to the fields where angels lie,

3 O, might I once mount up and see
The glories of th' eternal skies,

What little things these worlds would be I

Kingdoms and men would vanish soon j
Vanish, as though I saw them not.

As a dim candle dies at noon.

While rattling thunders round us roar.

Let me but view thy lovely face ;
And all my powers shall bow and sing
Thine endless grandeur and thy grace.

Book II. HYMN 43. 399

o 2 The swallow near thy temple lies,
And chirps a cheerful note :
The lark mounts upward toward the skies,
And tunes her warbling throat.

3 And we, when in thy presence, Lord,
We shout with cheerful tongues :

Or sitting roxmd our Father's board,
We crown the feast with songs.

4 While Jesus shines with quickening grace.
We sing, and mount on high;

But if a frown becloud his face,
We faint, and tire, and die.

5 Just as we see the lonesome dove
Bemoan her widowed state :

Wandering she flies through all the grove.
And mourns her loving mate :

6 Just so our thoughts, from thing to thing,
In restless circles rove ;

Just so we droop, and hang the wing,
When Jesus hides his love.]

Christ's Sufferings and Glory.

o Awake, my voice, in heavenly lays.
Tell the loud wonders he hath done.

2 Sing, how he left the worlds of light,

u How swift and joyfiil was the flight.
On wings of everlasting love,

8 3 (Down to this base, this sinful earth,

He came, to raise our nature high ;
p He came, to atone almighty wrath : —

Jesus the God was born to die.)

2 Far in the deep, where darkness dwells.
The land of horror and despair, —
Justice has built a dismal hell,

Tormenting racks and fiery coals, —
And darts to inflict immortal pains,
Dyed in the blood of damned souls.

4 There Satan, the first sinner, lies.
And roars, and bites his iron bands ;
In vain the rebel strives to rise,

Crushed with the weight of both thy hands.)

5 There guilty ghosts of Adam's race
Shriek out, and howl beneath thy rod ;
Once they could scorn a Saviour's grace,
But they incensed a dreadful God.

6 Tremble, my soul, and kiss the Son :

Else your damnation hastens on

And hell gapes wide to wait your fall.]

HYMN 46. L. M. Weldon. Portugal [*]

God's Condescension to Human Affairs.
1 TTP to the Lord, who reigns on high,

p 2 [He who can shake the worlds he made,
Or with his word, or with his rod, —

e 3 God, who must stoop to view the skies,

And bow to see what angels do —

Down to the earth he casts his eyes.

And bends his footsteps downward too.
— 4 He overrules all mortal things,

And manages our mean affairs ;

On humble souls the King of kings

Bestows his counsels and his cares.

e 5 Our sorrows and our tears we pour

Into the bosom of our God ;

He hears us in the mournful hour,

And helps to bear the heavy load.

Such condescension to perform ;

For worms were never raised so high.

Above their meanest fellow-worm.
o 7 Oh ! could our thankful hearts devise

A tribute equal to thy grace —
o To the third heaven our songs should rise.

And teach the golden harps thy praise.

HYMN 48. C. M. Reading, [b]

Love to the Creatures dangerous.

1 "TTOW vain are all things here below,
JLX How false, and yet how fair !

Each pleasure hath its poison too,
And every sweet a snare.

2 The brightest things below the sky,
Give but a flattering light ;

We should suspect some danger nigh,
Where we possess delight.

3 Our dearest joys, and nearest friends
The partners of our blood —

How they divide our wavering minds,
And leave but half for God !

4 The fondness of a creature's love,
How strong it strikes the sense !

Thither the warm affections move,
Nor can we call them thence.

o 5 Dear Saviour, let thy beauties be

My soul's eternal food ;
o And grace command my heart away

From all created good.

Moses dying in the Embraces of God.

1 ["I^EATH cannot make our souls afraid,

JlJ^ If God be with us there ;
We may walk through the darkest shade,
And never yield to fear.

2 I could renounce my all below,
If my Creator bid ;

And run, if I were called to go,
And die as Moses did.

3 Might I but climb to Pisgah's top,
And view the promised land ;

My flesh itself would long to drop,
And pray for the command.

4 Clasped in my heavenly Father's arms,
I would forget my breath ;

And lose my life among the charms
Of so divine a death.]

HYMN 50. L. M. Sicilian, [b *]
Coviforts under Sorrows and Pains.
1 [IVrOW let the Lord my Saviour smile,
-L 1 And show my name upon his heart ;

1 would forget my paiiis awhile,
And in the pleasure lose the smart.

2 But oh ! it swells my sorrows high,
To see my blessed Jesus frown ;

My spirits sink, my comforts die.
And all the springs of life are down.

3 Yet, why, my soul, why these complaints .?
Still, while he frowns, his bowels move :
Still on his heart he bears his saints,

And feels their sorrows, and his love.

4 My name is printed on his breast;
His book of life contains my name ;
I'd rather have it there impressed,
Than in the bright records of fame.

5 When the last fire burns all things here,
Those letters shall securely stand.

And in the Lamb's fair book appear,
Writ by th' eternal Father's hand.

6 Now shall my minutes smoothly run,
Whilst here I wait my Father's will ;
My rising, and my setting sun.

Roll gently up and down the hill.]
