Arranged by J. ZUNDEL.

1. When we, our wearied limbs to rest, Sat down by proud Euphrates' stream, We wept with doleful
thoughts oppressed, And Zion was our mournful theme. 2. Our harps that, when with joy we sung, Were
wont their tuneful parts to bear, With silent strings neglected hung On willow trees that withered there.
DAYBREAK. L. M.
1. O God, thou art my God alone; Ear-ly to Thee my soul shall

2. Yet, through this rough and thorny maze, I follow hard on Thee, my God; Thy hand unseen upholds my ways,
I safely tread where Thou hast trod.
3. Thee, in the watches of the night,
a land un-known, A thirsty land where springs are dry.
4. Better than life itself Thy love,
756. L. M.
1. THE floods, O Lord, lift up their voice, The mighty floods lift up their roar; The floods in tumult loud rejoice,
And climb in foam the sounding shore.
2. But mightier than the mighty sea,
The Lord of glory reigns on high; Far o'er its waves we look to Thee. And see their fury break and die.
3. Thy word is true, Thy promise sure,
757. L. M.
1. O LORD, Thy counsels and Thy care
4. But O! my Saviour, be Thou nigh, And I will triumph when I die; My strength, my portion is divine; And Jesus is for ever mine!
2. In whom but Thee, in heaven above,
758. L. M.
1. My spirit sinks within me, Lord
But I will call Thy name to mind;
When I have found my God was kind. 2. Huge troubles, with tumultuous noise,
Swell like a sea, and round me spread; The water-spouts drown all my joys,
And rising waves roll o'er my head. 3. Yet will the Lord command His love,
When I address His throne by day;
The night shall hear me sing and pray. 4. I'll cast myself before His feet,
And say, "My God, my heavenly Rock, "Why doth Thy love so long forget
The soul that groans beneath Thy stroke?"
5. Thy light and truth shall guide me still; Thy word shall my best thoughts employ, And lead me to Thine heavenly hill,
My God, my most exceeding joy!

1. Ho-ly Saviour, Friend unseen, Since on Thine arm Thou bid'st me lean, Help me throughout
lone to Thee!
5. With speed He flew to my relief,
As on a cherub's wing He rode; Awful and bright as lightning shone The face of my Deliverer, God!
6. Temptations fled at His rebuke—
The blast of His almighty breath;
And drew me from the deeps of death.
7. My song for ever shall record
That terrible, that joyful hour!
761. L. M.
1. THE tempter to my soul hath said
"There is no help in God for Thee;" Lord! lift Thou up Thy servant's head; My glory, shield, and solace be.
2. Thus to the Lord I raised my cry,
He heard me from His holy hill;
3. I laid me down and slept-I woke
Thou, Lord! my spirit didst sustain; Bright from the cast the morning brokeThy comforts rose on me again.
4. I will not fear, though armed throngs
Compass my steps in all their wrath; Salvation to the Lord belongs;
His presence guards His people's path.
