I Lord, how secure and blest are they
Who feel the joys of pardoned sin !
Should storms of wrath shake earth and sea,
Their minds have heaven and peace
2 The day glides sweetly o'er their heads,
Made up of innocence and love :
And -ul't and silent as the shades
Their nightly minutes gently move.
3 Quick as their thoughts their joys come on,
But flv not half so fast awav;
Their souLs are ever bright as noon.
And calm as summer evenings be.
4 Tiny -corn to seek our golden toys,
But sjiend the day and share the night
In numbering o'er the richer jovs

I God of mv life, (,, thee f call.
Afflicted at thy feet I fill ;
When the great w Uer-t!onds prevail.
Leave not my trembling heart to fail.

Where, but with thee, who.I- open door

And thou refuse that mourner's plea ?

That none shall seek thy face in vain?'

And he is safe, and must succeed,
For whom the Saviour deigns to plead.
Psalm lxviii. 17-1S.
1 Lord, when thou didst ascend on high,
Ten thousand angels filled the sky ;
'Iho-e heavenly guards around thee wait,
Like chariots that attend thv state.
2 Not Sinai's mountain could appear
More glorious, when the Lord was there:
While he pronounced his dreadful law,
And struck the chosen tribes with awe..
3 Mow bright the triumph none can tell
When the rebellious powers of h'-II,
That thousand souls had captives made
Were all in chains, like captives, leiI.
4 Raised by his father to the throne,
lie sent the promised Spirit down.
With gifts and grace for rebel nun
That God might dwell on earth .-vain
