1. Jesus, my God, my Saviour, In thy ce-les-tial favor Is mine supreme de- light; The

more my woes oppress me, The more do Thou possess me, With Thy all heavenly might.

CH. BEECHER.

Through all life's desert way; Thy beam my path enlightens, And more and more it brightens Unto eternal day.

5. O Jesus, my sweet Saviour, Soon Thy celestial favor

Shall be my sole delight; With seraphs I'll adore Thee, And cast my crown before Thee, Around Thy throne of light.

7s & 6s.

1. O THAT the Lord's salvation,
Jehovah's great salvation,

Were out of Zion come!
To heal His ancient nation,
His long forsaken nation-

To lead His outcasts home!

2. How long the holy city,
Zion, the holy city,

Shall heathen feet profane?
Return, O God, in pity,
In everlasting pity,
Rebuild her walls again.

3. Let fall Thy rod of terror, Thine iron rod of terror,

Thy saving grace impart! Remove the vail of error, The midnight vail of error,

Release the fettered heart.

4. Let Israel home returning,
With ransom home returning,
Their lost Messiah see!
Give oil of joy for mourning,
For ages long of mourning,
And build Thy church to Thee!

DOXOLOGY. 7s & 6s.

GLORY be Thine for ever,
O Lord, of life the Giver,

Immortal Kings of kings,
To Thee thrice-named be praises,
Loud as all Heaven raises,

While earth responsive sings.

2. I implored Thy succor,

Thou was swift to save,
To heal my wounded spirit,
And bring me from the grave.

3. Grief may, like the pilgrim,
Through the night sojourn,
Yet shall joy, to-morrow,
With the sun return.

4. Thou hast turned my mourning
Into minstrelsy;

Girded me with gladness,
Set from thraldom free.

5. Thee my ransomed powers
Henceforth shall adore;
Thee, my great Deliverer,
Bless for evermore!

Thou wast swift to save, To heal my wounded spi - rit, And bring me from the grave.

1. GOD of our salvation!
Unto Thee we pray;
Hear our supplication,

Be our strength and stay.
2. Wretched and unworthy,

Poor, and sick, and blind,
Prostrate we adore Thee,

Call Thy grace to mind.
3. He that dwelleth near Thee,
Safely shall abide;
Ever love and fear Thee,

In Thy strength confide.
4. Sure is Thy protection,

Safe is Thy defence,
While in deep affliction,
Woe, or pestilence.

905. L.M.

1. O DEEM not they are blest alone

Whose lives a peaceful tenor keep; For God, who pities man, has shown A blessing for the eyes that weep.

2. The light of smiles shall fill again
The lids that overflow with tears;
And weary hours of woe and pain
Are promises of happier years.

3. There is a day of sunny rest

For every dark and troubled night; And grief may bide an evening guest, But joy shall come with early light.

4. Nor let the good man's trust depart,
Though life its common gifts deny,
Though with a pierced and broken heart,
And spurned of men, he goes to die.

5. For God has marked each sorrowing day,
And numbered every secret tear,
And heaven's long age of bliss shall pay
For all His children suffer here.

906. L. M.

1. O ZION! when I think on Thee,

I wish for pinions like the dove, And mourn to think that I should be So distant from the place I love.

2. A captive here, and far from home,

For Zion's sacred walls I sigh;
Thither the ransomed nations come,
And see the Saviour eye to eye.

3. While here I walk on hostile ground;
The few, that I can call my friends,
Are like myself with fetters bound,
And weariness our steps attends.

4. But we shall yet behold the day

When Zion's children shall return; Our sorrows then shall flee away,

And we again shall never mourn.

5. The hope that such a day will come,

Makes c'en the captives' portion sweet; Though now we wander far from home, In Zion soon we all shall meet.
