LORD, GOD OF ABRAHAM.

Draw near, all ye people: come to me! Lord God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel! this day let it be known that Thou art God; and I am Thy servant!

O show to all this people that I have done these things according to Thy word!

O hear me, Lord, and answer me; and show this people that Thou art Lord God; and let their hearts again be turned.

180.

CAST THY BURDEN.

Cast thy burden upon the Lord and He shall sustain thee; He never will suffer the righteous to fall; He is at thy right hand. Thy mercy, Lord, is great and far above the heavens. Let none be made ashamed that wait upon Thee.

181.

THE LORD IS GREAT.

The Lord is great, when in the tempest peal
His voice resounds with mighty force.
And in their tracks the orbs of heaven reel,
And earth is quivering in her course.

The Lord is kind, when in the morning's beam
His radiant love on earth is shed,
And fragrant vernal blossoms blandly gleam
By quick'ning sparkling dewdrops fed.

The Lord is great, His might the heavens declare

He reigns supreme below, above; The Lord is kind. He listens to my prayer And guides His child in gracious love.

182.

THE RADIANT MORN HATH PASSED AWAY.

The radiant morn hath passed away
And spent too soon her golden store;
The shadows of departing day
Creep on once more.

Our life is but a fading dawn,

Its glorious noon how quickly past.
Lead us, O Lord, when all is gone,
Safe home at last.

Where souls are happy in Thy sight,
And evening shadows never fall;
Where Thou eternal Light of light
Art Lord of all.

183.

ARISE! SHINE! FOR THE LIGHT IS COME. Arise! Shine! for thy light is come and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. For behold the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people; but the Lord shall rise upon thee, and His glory be seen upon thee.

Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall the moon withdraw herself;

For the Lord shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of the mourning shall be ended.

184.

AS PANTS THE HEART.

(Psalm 42.)

As pants the hart for cooling streams when heated in the chase,

So longs my soul, O God, for Thee and Thy refreshing grace.

For Thee, my God, the living God, my thirsty soul doth pine;

O when shall I behold Thy face, Thou majesty divine.

185.

HEAR MY CRY, O GOL.

Hear my cry, O God, attend to my prayer! Lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For Thou art my refuge, my strong tower against the enemy.

I shall dwell in Thy tabernacle for ever; I will seek refuge under the covert of Thy wings.

For Thou, O God! will hear my vows, and give me the inheritance of those who fear Thy name.

186.

O GOD OF ISRAEL, HEAR US!

O God of Israel, hear us!

On the wings of prayer our hearts soar up to heaven,

We acknowledge Thy power supreme,
And Thy mercy renewed each morn.
Thine, Thine are our hearts!

O God of Israel, hear us!
Give ear to our petition!
Almighty, Beneficent, hear us!
Thine is the breath we're breathing,
Thine our heart's pulsations.

O God of Israel, hear us!
God, Omnipotent, full of mercy!
God, Redeemer, hear our petition,
Answer our prayer―

O, Israel's God! Amen.

187.

SEEK YE THE LORD.

Seek ye the Lord while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return unto the Lord, and He will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.

188.

THE LORD IS GRACIOUS.

The Lord is gracious and full of compassion, slow to anger, and of great mercy.

The Lord is good, and His tender mercies are all over His works.

We will praise the Lord, henceforth and forHallelujah!

ever.

189.

I WILL EXTOL THEE, O LORD!

I will extol Thee, O Lord! for Thou hast lifted me up and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me.

I cried unto Thee and Thou hast healed me, Thou hast turned my mourning into dancing, and girded me with gladness; to the end, that my glory may sing praise to Thee.

O Lord, my God! I will give thanks unto Thee forever!

190.

REJOICE IN THE LORD.

Rejoice in the Lord, O ye righteous, for it be-
cometh well the just to be thankful.
Our soul hath patiently waited for the Lord;
He is our help and our shield.

Our heart shall rejoice in Him, for we have trusted in His holy name.

Let Thy merciful kindness be upon us, like as we do put our trust in Thee.

191.

THE WOR OF THE LORD IS TRUE.

Rejoice in the Lord, ye righteous, for the word of the Lord is true, and all His works are faithful:

He watereth the hills from above, the earth is filled with the fruit of His works; He bringeth forth grass for the cattle and green herbs for the service of man.
