HYMN 96. C.M.
For Morning and Evening. (cont.)

  4 For death stands ready at the door,
   To take our lives away.
  5 Our breath is forfeited by sin,
   To God's avenging law;
We own thy grace, immortal King!
   In ev'ry gasp we draw.
  6 God is our sun, whose daily light
   Our joy and safety brings;
Our feeble flesh lies safe at night,
   Beneath his shady wings.

HYMN 97. S.M.
Lord's day morning.

  1 WELCOME sweet day of rest,
   That saw the Lord arise;
Welcome to this reviving breast,
   And these rejoicing eyes!
  2 The King himself comes near,
   And feasts his saints to-day;
Here we may sit, and see him here,
   And love, and praise, and pray.
  3 One day amidst the place,
   Where my great God hath been,
Is sweeter than ten thousand days
   Of pleasurable sin.
  4 My willing soul would stay
   In such a frame as this;
And sing, and bear herself away
   To everlasting bliss.

HYMN 98. C.M.
Lord's day evening.

  1 FREQUENT the day of God returns
   To shed its quick'ning beams:
And yet how slow devotion burns!
   How languid arc its Haines!

HYMN 98. C.M.
Lord's day evening. (cont.)

  2 Accept our faint attempts to love,
   Our frailties, Lord, forgive:
We would be like thy saints above,
   And praise thee while we live.
  3 Increase, O Lord, our faith and hope,
   And fit us to ascend,
Where the assembly ne'er breaks up,
   The sabbath ne'er shall end;
  4 There we shall breathe in heav'nly air,
   With heav'nly lustre shine;
Before the throne of God appear,
   And feast on love divine.

HYMN 99. S.M.
The gospel Ministry.

  1 HOW beauteous are their feet,
   Who stand on Zion's hill;
Who bring salvation on their tongues,
   And words of peace reveal!
  2 How charming is their voice,
   How sweet the tidings are!
"Zion, behold thy Saviour-King,
   "He reigns and triumphs here."
  3 How happy are our ears,
   That hear this joyful sound;
Which kings and prophets waited for,
   And sought, but never found!
  4 How blessed are our eyes,
   That see this heav'nly light!
Prophets and kings desir'd it long,
   But died without the sight.
  5 The watchmen join their voice,
   And tuneful notes employ;
Jerusalem breaks forth in songs,
   And deserts learn the joy.
