Thou wilt not frown our souls away,

Nor our complaints despise
We feel thy chastening hand,

Yet would we not repine;
But with adoring reverence stand,

And bow to thy design.
3 Yet, Lord, in mercy hear,

And bid thine arger stay ;
Avert the judgments that we fear,

And turn our night to day. 4 Thy mercy, Lord, we plead,

Let mercy now prevail;
A Saviour's blood shall intercede,

And that can never fail.

OUR NATIVE LAND.

C.M. Warburton-Farrant-Canterbury. 1 Lord, while for all mankind we pray,

Of every clime and coast,
O hear us for our native land,

The land we love the most.
2 Our fathers' sepulchres are here,

And here our kindred dwell:
Our children too ;-how should we love

Another land so well!
3 O guard our shores from every foe,

With peace our borders bless:

With prosperous times our cities crown,

Our fields with plenteousness. 4 Unite us in the sacred love

Of knowledge, truth, and thee:
And let our hills and valleys shout

The songs of liberty.
5 Here may religion pure and mild,

Upon our Sabbaths smile; And piety and virtue reign,

And bless our native isle.
6 Lord of the nations, thus to thee

Our country we commend;
Be thou her refuge and her trust,

Her everlasting Friend.

PRAYER FOR GREAT BRITAIN. 499. (Ps. lxvii.)

C.M. St. Andrew's-St. Ann's Universityl. 1 Shine, mighty God, on Britain shine,

With beams of heavenly grace; Reveal thy power through all our coasts,

And show thy smiling face. 2 Amidst our isle, exalted high,

Do thou our glory stand,
And, like a wall of guardian fire,

Surround this favoured land.

3 When shall thy name, from shore to shore,

Sound all the earth abroad;
And distant nations know and love

Their Saviour and their God?
4 Sing to the Lord, ye distant lands,

Sing loud, with solemn voice; While British tongues exalt his praise,

And British hearts rejoice. 5 He, the great Lord, the sovereign Judge,

That sits enthroned above,
Wisely commands the worlds he made

In justice and in love.
6 Earth shall obey her Maker's will,

And yield a full increase ;
Our God will crown his chosen isle

With fruitfulness and peace.
7 God, the Redeemer, scatters round

His choicest favours here,
While the creation's utmost bound

Shall see, adore, and fear.

THE COLONIES.

L. M. Babylon-TV inchester - Mainzer. 1 Lord Jesus, let thy watchful care,

Thy faithful love, our brethren tend;
Their hearts sustain, their way prepare,
And safely guide them to the end.

2 Be with them on the stormy deep;

Be with them in the silent hour;
By sea or land, awake, asleep,

Be thou their helper, strength, and tower. 3 Maintain them through their earthly strife,

So running as to win the race;
Each holding forth the word of life,

A light to lighten future days.
4 Go, brethren, go! with cheerful voice

We bid you go ;-a blessed leaven;-
Go, win the country of your

choice For truth, and liberty, and heaven.
