3 She guides the young with innocence
In pleasure's path to tread;
Upon the hoary head.
+ According as her labours rise,
So her rewards increase;
And all her paths are peace.
5* To praise the Father and the Son,
And Spirit all Divine,
Twenty-second Sunday after Trinity.
Than the world's best treasures are.
Like a lamp, whene'er I stray,
3 Humble, teachable, and mild,
Meekly, like a little child,
4 Save, O save me, I am Thine,
To Thy ways my heart incline;
ALMIGHTY God, in humble prayer
To Thee our souls we lift;
For Thy most needful gift.
We ask not golden streams of wealth
Along our path to flow;
Nor length of years below.
3 We ask not honours, which an hour
May bring and take away ;
Lest we should go astray.
4 We ask for Wisdom : Lord, impart
The knowledge how to live;
To all before Thee give.
; O may the young be Thine in youth,
Before the evil days,
7. Montgomery.* 217
me be with Thee where Thou art,
Be fully and for ever blest !
Let me be with Thee where Thou art,
Thy unveiled glory to behold ;
Cease to be treacherous, faithless, cold !
3 Let me with Thee where Thou art,
Where spotless saints Thy Name adore ; Then only will this sinful heart
Be evil and defiled no more !
4 Let me be with Thee where Thou art,
Where none can die, where none remove;
THE Lord of Might from Sinai's brow
Gave forth His voice of thunder ;
Outstretched in fear and wonder:
The rocks were rent asunder.
The Lord of Love on Calvary,
A meek and suffering stranger,
In nature's hour of danger;
And met His Father's anger.
3 The Lord of Love, the Lord of Might,
The King of all created,
On clouds of glory seated ;
Bp. R. Heber.
for a closer walk with God,
That leads me to the Lamb !
2 Return, O holy Dove! return,
Sweet messenger of rest !
And drove Thee from my breast.
3 The dearest idol I have known,
Whate'er that idol be,
And worship only Thee !
4 So shall my walk be close with God,
Calm and serene my frame;
FRIENDS and parents lingered weeping
Round her body where it lay;
Had the spirit left the clay ?
2 By her side the Saviour standeth ;
Minstrels, mourners, all have fled (So the Lord of life commandeth)
Froin the chamber of the dead.
3 Gently now her hand He taketh,
Saith unto her, “ Maid, arise ;”
Fixeth on the Lord her eyes.
4 He the word divine hath spoken
Which both death and hell obey ;
Spoiled the spoiler of his prey.
5 He shall by His Cross demolish
Sin's dominion, Satan's might,
Bring eternal life to light. Amen.
