Delightful lesson of Thy grace;
And jointly glory in Thy praise.

Blended and gather'd into Thee;
Where all is love and harmony.
Church praying for the Flock.
I JESUS, united by Thy grace,
And each to each endear'd,
And know our pray’r is heard.

And bear Thy easy yoke;
Which never can be broke.

Baptize into Thy Name;
And sweetly speak the same.
4 Touch'd by the loadstone of Thy love,
Let all our hearts agree;
And ever move tow'rds Thee.
5 To Thee inseparably join'd
Let all our spirits cleave; O may we all the loving mind
That was in Thee receive !

Insensibly remove : Our souls the change shall searcely know,
Made perfect first in love!
Church praying for the Flock.
THOU God of truth and love,
We seek Thy perfect way,
Thy providence t' obey;
2 Why hast Thou cast our lot
In the same age and place?
To see each other's face;
And mix our friendly souls in Thee? 3 Surely Thou didst unite
Our kindred spirits here,
Before Thy throne appear,
Then let us ever bear
The blessed end in view,
To fight our passage through;
Church praying for Prosperity. 1 INDULGENT Sor’reign of the skies,
And wilt Thou bow Thy gracious ear? While feeble mortals raise their cries,
Wilt Thou, the great JEHOVAH, hear? 2 How shall Thy servants give Thee rest,
Till Zion's mouldering walls Thou raise ? Till Thy own pow'r shall stand confess’d,
And make Jerusalem a praise ? 3 For this a lowly suppliant crowd
Here in Thy sacred temple wait: For this we lift our voices loud,
And call, and knock at mercy's gate. 4 Look dowo, O GOD, with pitying eye,
And view the desolation round;
And hurk their idols to the ground. 5 Loud let the gospel-trumpet blow,
And call the nations from afar;
And earth's remotest ends draw near. 6 Triumphant here let Jesus reign,
And on His vineyard sweetly smile;
Adorn our church, and bless our işle..

Baptiz'd with heav'nly fire.
To help each other on;
An everlasting crown.
The warmest charity;
The heart that was in Thee.
Thy SPIRIT, LORD, supply: So shall we all Thy love receive, Together to Thy glory live,
And to Thy glory die.
Spiritual Baptism. 1 ATTEND, ye children of your God!
Ye heirs of glory, hear!
Might charm the dullest car.
Your souls to sin must die;
With Christ ascend on high.
Enthron'd divinely fair;
And your forerunner there. , 4. Rise from these earthly trifles, rise!
On wings of faith and love,-Above your choicest treasure lies,
And be your hearts above, 5 But earth and sin will drag us down,
When we attempt to fly; LORD, send Thy strong attractive pow'r To raise and fix us high!
Lord's Supper instituted. 1 'Twas on that dark, that doleful night,
When pow'rs of, earth and hell arose', Against the Son of God's delight, And friends betray'd Him to His foes;
