9:56 2 228
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.
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.

Were out of Zion come!
To lead His outcasts home!
2. How long the holy city,
Shall heathen feet profane?
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,

TRIALS AND TEMPTATIONS.
1. If life's pleasures charm thee, Give them not thy heart; Lest the gift en
snare thee From thy God to
Than call the world my own.
2. If distress be- fall
Pain-ful though it be, Let not grief ap- pal thee, To thy Saviour flee.
* May be sung to either tune, by using the small notes.
But in Thy bleeding love:

1. O deem not they are blest a lone Whose lives a peaceful ten
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
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,
5. For God has marked each sorrowing day,
For God, who pit - ies man, has shown A blessing for the eyes that weep.
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;
3. While here I walk on hostile ground;
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.
