Another six days' work is done,

Assembled in our school once more,
As the sun's enlivening ray,...

As the sweet flower that scents the morn,

As bodies, when the soul is dead,...

As when the weary traveller gains,.

Author of good, we rest on thee,

A voice from the desert comes sounding,

Awake, my soul, and with the sun,
Awake, my soul, lift up thine eyes,

Awake, my soul, stretch every nerve,.

Before Jehovah's awful throne,
Begin, my soul, th' exalted lay,.
Behold! another year begins,
Behold th' amazing sight,

Behold the beauteous western light,
Behold the morning sun, ......

Behold the Prince of Peace,..

Bebold the Savior on the cross,..
Behold us, Lord, with humble fear, ...............38
Behold where, in a mortal form,

Be it my cnly wisdom here,

Be joyful in God, all ye lands of the earth,
Besei with snares on every hand,

Be still, my heart! these anxious cares,...... 268
Be thou, () God, by night, by day,
Be theu, o God, exalted high,..
Be with me, Lord, where'er I go,.

Beyond, beyond that boundless sea,
Blest are the meek, he said,

Blest are the sons of peace...
Blest be the everlasting God,.

Blest be the tie that binds,

Blest instructor, from thy ways,

Blest is the man who fears the Lord,

Bright was the guiding star that led,.

But who shall see that glorious day,

By cool Siloam's shady rill,...








Puge. 125

Calm on the listening ear of night,
Called by the Sabbath bells away,.
Cease, ye mourners, cease to languish,
Child to thee, the loved of Heaven,.
Children of the heavenly King,
Christians, brethren, ere we part,
Clay to clay, and dust dust,...
Come, Holy Spirit. Heavenly Dove,..
Come, let us search our ways and try,..
Come, said Jesus' sacred voice,..
Come, sound his praise abroad,.
Come, thou Almighty King,..
Come to the house of prayer,
Come, weary souls, with sin oppressed,
Come, we that love the Lord,
Dear is the hallowed morn to me,...
Death has been here, and borne away,.
Early, my God, without delay,
Earth has engrossed our cares too long,
Eat, drink, in memory

Enough of life's vain scene I've trod,
Trnal Father, God of love,
Tieral God, Almighty cause,.
Eternal source of life and light,
Eternal source of every joy,
Hiernal Spirit, God of truth,
Eternity is just at hand,
Faith is the brightest evidence,
Farewell, dear friend, a long farewell,
Far from mortal cares retreating,
Far from thy servants, God of grace..
Father divine, before thy view,
Father, I love to read of thee,
Father in heaven, thy ceaseless love,..
Father of light, conduct my feet..
Father of lights, we sing thy name,
Father of mercies, God of love,
Father of mercies, in thy word,..

How blest is he, whose tranquil mind,.
If Providence, to iry my heart,
If through unruffled seas,
I hear thee speak of the better land,
I heard a voice from heaven,
I love to steal awhile away,
I love to join the joyful play,..
Imposture shrinks from light,
In all my vast concerns with thee,
In duties and in sufferings too,
In Israel's fane, by silent night,...
In the soft season of thy youth,
I sing the mighty power of God,.
Is there a lone and dreary hour,
I thank the goodness and the grace,
I waited patient for the Lord,.
I want a principle within,
I would not live alway: I ask not to stay,
I would resolve with all my heart,..
Jerusalem, my happy home,.
Jesus, and shall it ever be,
Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior,
Jesus, my truth, my way,
Jesus'shall reign where'er the sun,.....
Jesus will take the young,
Joy to the world! The Lord is come,
Lead us, Heavenly Father, lead us,
Let others boast how strong they be,
Let party names no more,.
Let us adore the grace that keeps,
Let us unite to bless the Lord,.
Let us with a gladsome mind,
Life is the time to serve the Lord,.
Little children, come to me,
Little children, love each other,.
Lo! God is here, let us adore,....
Lord, before thy presence come,
Lord, disniiss us with thy blessing,
