1. THE perfect world, by Adam trod,
Was the first temple built by God;
Ilis fiat laid the corner-stone,
And heaved its pillars one by one.

2. He hung its starry roof on high-
The broad, illimitable sky;

He spread its pavement, green and bright,
And curtained it with morning light.

3. The mountains in their places stood,

The sea-the sky-and "all was good;"
And when its first pure praises rang,
The morning stars together sang."

4. Lord, 't is not ours to make the sea,
And earth, and sky, a house for Thee;
But in Thy sight our off'ring stands-
An humbler temple, "made with hands."

5. We can not bid the morning star

To sing how bright Thy glories are;
But, Lord, if Thou wilt meet us here,
Thy praise shall be the Christian's tear.


939. L. M.

1. WE bid thee welcome in the name Of Jesus, our exalted HeadCome as a servant, so He came,

And we receive thee in His stead.

1. O Thou, whose own vast temple stands, Built over earth and sea, Ac-cept the

walls that human hands Have raised to worship Thee! Have raised to worship Thee!

To lean upon the Saviour's breast, And thus to journey on!


942. C. M.

1. ANGELS, where'er we go, attend
Our steps, whate'er betide,

With watchful care their charge defend,
And evil turn aside.

2. Myriads of bright cherubic bands, Sent by the King of kings, Rejoice to bear us in their hands, And shade us with their wings.

3. Jehovah's charioteers surround; The ministerial choir

Encamp, where'er his heirs are found, And form our wall of fire.

4. Ten thousand offices unseen For us they gladly do, Deliver in the furnace keen. And safe escort us through.

5. But thronging round, with busiest love
They guard the dying breast,
The lurking fiend far off remove,
And sing our souls to rest.

6. And when our spirits we resign,

On outstretched wings they bear, And lodge us in the arms Divine, And leave us ever there.

1. FROM Greenland's icy mountains, From India's coral strand, Where Afric's sunny fountains

Roll down their golden sand;
From many an ancient river,

From many a palmy plain
They call us to deliver

Their land from error's chain.

2. What though the spicy breezes
Blow soft o'er Ceylon's isle;
Though every prospect pleases,
And only man is vile:
In vain with lavish kindness

The gifts of God are strown; The heathen, in his blindness,

Bows down to wood and stone!

3. Shall we, whose souls are lighted
With wisdom from on high,
Shall we to men benighted
The lamp of life deny?
Salvation, O salvation !

Till each remotest nation

Has learned Messiah's name.

In bliss returns to reign.

With flaming zeal your breasts inspire;
Bid raging winds their fury cease,

3. And when your labors all are o'er,

Then we shall meet to part no more; Meet, with the blood-bought throng to fall

And crown our Jesus Lord of all.

946. L. M.

1. TRIUMPHANT Zion! lift thy head
From dust, and darkness, and the dead!
Though humbled long-awake at length,
And gird thee with thy Saviour's strength!

2. Put all thy beauteous garments on,

And let thy excellence be known;
Decked in the robes of righteousness,
The world thy glories shall confess.
3. No more shall foes unclean invade,

And fill thy hallowed walls with dread;
No more shall hell's insulting host
Their victory and thy sorrows boast.

4. God, from on high, has heard thy prayer;
His hand thy ruins shall repair;
Nor will thy watchful Monarch cease
To guard thee in eternal peace.



917. L. M.

1. O SPIRIT of the living God,

In all Thy plenitude of grace, Where'er the foot of man hath trod, Descend on our apostate race.

2. Give tongues of fire, and hearts of love,
To preach the reconciling word;
Give power and unction front above,
Where'er the joyful sound is heard.
3. Be darkness, at Thy coming, light;
Confusion-order, in Thy path;
Souls without strength, inspire with might
Bid mercy triumph over wrath.

4. Baptize the nations; far and nigh

The triumphs of the cross record;
The name of Jesus glorify,

Till every kindred call Him, Lord.
5. O Spirit of the Lord! prepare

All the round earth her God to meet Breathe Thou abroad like morning air, Till hearts of stone begin to beat. MONTGOMERY.

Put on Thy strength! the nations shake!
And let the world, adoring, sce
Triumphs of mercy wrought by Thee.

2. Say to the heathen, from Thy throne"I am Jehovah-God alone!"

Thy voice their idols shall confound,
And cast their altars to the ground.

3. Almighty God! Thy grace proclaim
In every iand, of every name;
Let Zion's time of favor come;
Oh! bring the tribes of Israel home.
4. Arm of the Lord! awake, awake!
Put on Thy strength! the nations shake!
Let hostile powers before Thee fall,
And crown the Saviour Lord of all.

2. Hail, Jesus! all victorious Lord!
Be Thou by all mankind adored!
For us didst Thou the fight maintain,
And o'er our foes the victory gain,
That we, with Thee, might ever reign
In endless day.

*By repeating half the last line.

3. Fight on, ye conquering souls, fight on,
And when the conquest you have won,
Then palms of victory you shall bear,
And in His kingdom have a share,
And crowns of glory ever wear,
In endless day.

4. There we shall in full chorus join,
With saints and angels, all combine
To sing of His redeeming love,
When rolling years shall cease to move,
And this shall be our theme above,
In endless day.

1. HARK, hark! the gospel trumpet sounds!
Thro' earth and heaven the echo bounds!
Pardon and peace by Jesus' blood,
Sinners are reconciled to God
By grace divine.

2. Come, sinners, hear the joyful news, Nor longer dare the grace refuso;


the world the ech-o


deem-ing blood, Is bringing sin-ners

Mercy and justice here combine,
Goodness and truth harmonious join,
T'invite you near.

3. Ye saints in glory, strike the lyre;
Ye mortals, catch the sacred fire;
Let both the Saviour's love proclaim—
For ever worthy is the Lamb
Of endless praise.

1. FROM day to day, before our eyes,

Grows and extends the work begun; When shall the new creation rise

O'er every land beneath the sun?

2. When, in the sabbath of His love,

Shall God from all His labors rest;
And bending from His throne above,
Again pronounce His creatures blest?
3. As sang the morning stars of old,

Shouted the sons of God for joy;
His widening reign while we behold,
Let praise and prayer our tongues em-

4. Till the redeemed in every clime,

Yea, all that breathe, and move, and live,
To Christ, through every age of time,
The kingdom, power, and glory give.
