3 She guides the young with innocence

In pleasure's path to tread;
A crown of glory she bestows

Upon the hoary head.

+ According as her labours rise,

So her rewards increase;
Her ways are ways of pleasantness,

And all her paths are peace.

5* To praise the Father and the Son,

And Spirit all Divine,
The One in Three, and Three in One,
Let young and old combine. Amen.

5 Logan.

Twenty-second Sunday after Trinity.

215
1 DEARER, Lord, Thy statutes far

Than the world's best treasures are.
Gold or honey I esteem
Dross and dust compared with them.

2

Like a lamp, whene'er I stray,
Shining bright upon my way,
Let Thy pure and lively word
Still its quickening light afford.

3 Humble, teachable, and mild,

Meekly, like a little child,
At my gracious Saviour's feet
Let me take my daily seat.

4 Save, O save me, I am Thine,

To Thy ways my heart incline;
Ever let Thy holy Word
Light, and life, and peace afford. Ainen.

ALMIGHTY God, in humble prayer

To Thee our souls we lift;
Do Thou our waiting minds prepare

For Thy most needful gift.

2

We ask not golden streams of wealth

Along our path to flow;
We ask not undecaying health,

Nor length of years below.

3 We ask not honours, which an hour

May bring and take away ;
We ask not pleasure, pomp, and power,

Lest we should go astray.

4 We ask for Wisdom : Lord, impart

The knowledge how to live;
A wise and understanding heart

To all before Thee give.

; O may the young be Thine in youth,

Before the evil days,
The old be guided by Thy Truth
In wisdom's pleasant ways! Amen.

7. Montgomery.* 217

LET

I

me be with Thee where Thou art,
My Saviour, my eternal Rest!
Then only will this longing heart

Be fully and for ever blest !

2

Let me be with Thee where Thou art,

Thy unveiled glory to behold ;
Then only will this wandering heart

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;
There neither death nor life will part
Me from Thy presence and Thy love!

C. Elliott.

THE Lord of Might from Sinai's brow

Gave forth His voice of thunder ;
And Israel lay on earth below,

Outstretched in fear and wonder:
Beneath His feet was pitchy night,
And at His left hand and His right

The rocks were rent asunder.

2

The Lord of Love on Calvary,

A meek and suffering stranger,
Upraised to heaven His languid eye

In nature's hour of danger;
For us He bore the weight of woe,
For us He gave His blood to flow,

And met His Father's anger.

3 The Lord of Love, the Lord of Might,

The King of all created,
Shall back return to claim His right

On clouds of glory seated ;
With trumpet-sound, and angel-song
And hallelujahs loud and long,
O'er death and hell defeated. Amen.

Bp. R. Heber.

Twenty-fourth Sunday after Trinity.
Он!

for a closer walk with God,
A calm and heavenly frame !
A light to shine upon the road

That leads me to the Lamb !

2 Return, O holy Dove! return,

Sweet messenger of rest !
I hate the sins that made Thee mourn,

And drove Thee from my breast.

3 The dearest idol I have known,

Whate'er that idol be,
Help me to tear it from Thy throne,

And worship only Thee !

4 So shall my walk be close with God,

Calm and serene my frame;
So purer light shall mark the road
That leads me to the Lamb. Amen.

W. Cowper.

FRIENDS and parents lingered weeping

Round her body where it lay;
Was she dead or only sleeping ?

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 ;”
Lo, she stirreth, she awaketh,

Fixeth on the Lord her eyes.

4 He the word divine hath spoken

Which both death and hell obey ;
He the captive's chain hath broken,

Spoiled the spoiler of his prey.

5 He shall by His Cross demolish

Sin's dominion, Satan's might,
Death and all his reign abolish,

Bring eternal life to light. Amen.
