PRAISE YE THE LORD. Praise ye the Lord God Almighty,

O praise and magnify His holy name!
Sing of His power and glory,

To everlasting the same.
Though here we wander, and sorrow

Darkens our soul with its night;
Hope sees a brighter to-morrow,

Rejoicing the world with its light. Amen.

223.

SWEET IS THE MERCY OF THE LORD.
Sweet is Thy mercy, Lord !

Before Thy mercy seat
My soul, adoring, pleads Thy word,

And owns Thy mercy sweet.
Where'er Thy name is plessed,

Where'er Thy people meet, There I delight in Thee to rest

And find Thy mercy sweet.
Light Thou our weary way,

Lead Thou my wand’ring feet,
That while we stay on earth we may

Still find Thy mercy sweet. Amen.

224.

THY INFINITE LOVE AND MERCI.

The night with its darkness draws nigh, (), hear us, our Father in heaven,

And answer Thy own children's cry:

Who humbly seeking Thy blessing,

Now pray that Thy grace may remain. 0, make our love pure and holy,

O, may we not seek Thee in vain.

Though bright stars may wander in heaven,

Thou still lookest down from above O, Father, we trust in Thy mercy,

And in Thy infinite love.

HOW LOVELY ARE THY DWELLINGS FAIR.

(Psalm 84.) How lovely are Thy dwellings fair,

O Lord of Hosts! how dear The pleasant tabernacles are

Where Thou doest dwell so near.

My soul doth long, yea, even faint

Thy courts, O Lord, to see;
My heart and flesh are crying out,

O living God, for Thee.

Behold, the sparrow findeth out

A house wherein to rest;
The swallow also for herself

Hath found a peaceful nest.
Blest all who dwell within Thy house,

They ever give Thee praise;
And bless the man whose strength Thou art,

In whose heart are Thy ways.

229.

TO THEE, O LORD, WE PRAY.
Oh! Thou whose pow'r tremendous

Upholds the starry sky,
Thy grace preserving send us;

To Thee, O Lord, we cry.

From wilds of fearful error,

Wherein we darkly stray,
Oppressed with doubt and terror,

For saving aid we pray,

Oh, God of mercy, hear us,

Our pains, our sorrow see,
Thy healing pity spare us,
And bring us home to Thee.

230.

SEND OUT THY LIGHT AND LEAD ME. Send out Thy light and lead me,

Father, lead me beyond this darkness, This sorrow and unrest,

And guide me worn and weary, To the calm shelter of my Father's breast.

BOW DOWN THINE EAR, O LORD. Bow down Thine ear, O Lord, and answer me;

save Thy servant that trusteth in Thee. Be merciful to me, O Lord, for unto Thee do

I cry all day long. Rejoice the soul of Thy servant, for unto

Thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul. For Thou, Lord, art good and ready to for

give, and plenteous in mercy unto all them

that call in Thee. I will praise Thee with my whole heart, and

I will glorify Thy name forevermore.

O COME, LET US WORSHIP. O come, let us worship and kneel before the

Lord, and bow down to Him; come, bend

the knee to the Lord our Maker. For He is our God, and we are the flock of

His pasture, and the people of His hand.

HEAR YE, ISRAEL, WHAT THE LORD SPEAKETH.

Hear ye, Israel: hear what the Lord speaketh:

Hadst thou heeded My commandments! Who hath believed our report, to whom is the

arm of the Lord revealed ? Thus saith the Lord, the Redeemer of Israel,

and his Holy one, to him oppressed by tyrants; I am He that comforteth: Be not afraid, for I am thy God, I will strengthen

thee. Say, who art thou, that thou art afraid of

a man that shall die; and forgettest the Lord thy Maker. Who hath stretched forth the heavens, and laid the earth's founda

tions? Be not afraid, saith God the Lord. Though thousands languish and fall beside

thee, and tens of thousands around thee perish; yet still it shall not come nigh thee.
