3 FATHER, Thy mercies past we own,
Thy still continued care,
Whate'er we have, or are.
4 Our lips and lives shall gladly show
The wonders of Thy love,
5 Our residue of days or hour's
Thine, wholly Thine shall be;
A sacrifice to Thee;
6. Til Jesus in the clouds appear
To saints on earth forgiven,
The jubilee of heaven.
1 COME, let us knew Our journey pursue,
Roll round with the year, And never stand still, till the Master appear! 2 His adorable will Let us gladly fulfil,
And our talents improve, By the patience of hope, and the labour of love. 3 Our life is a dream, Our time as a 'stream
Glides swiftly away!
4 O that each in the day of his coming may say,
“I have fought my way through; '! I have finish'd the work Thou didst give
me to do." 5 O that each from his LORD May receive the
glad word, “Well and faithfully done! Enter into My joy, and sit down on My Throne,”
1 WHILE with ceaseless course the sun
Hasted thro' the former year, if
Never more to meet us here:
2 Fix'd in an eternal state, 19
They have done with all below; We a little longer wait, s1
But how little pone can know. i'
3 As the winged arrow flies,
Speedily the mark to find; :* As the lightning from the skies
Darts, and leaves no trace behind: 17
4 Swiftly, thus our fleeting days
Bear us down life's rapid stream: Upwards, LORD, our spirits raise;
All below is but a dream.
5. Thanks for mercies past receive,
Pardon of our sins renew; Teach us, henceforth, how to live
With eternity in view: 6 Bless Thy Word to young and old,
Fill us with a SAVIOUR's love; And when life's short tale is told,
May we dwell with Thee above.
Quickly have the seasons pass'a !
May to many prove their last. 2 Mercy hitherto has spar'd,
But have mercies been improv'd?
Should I be this year removid?
3 Some we now no longer see,
Who their mortal raèe have run,
When the former year begun :
4 Some (but who God only knows)
Who are here assembled now,
To the stroke of death must bow.
5 Life a field of battle is;
Thousands fall within our view; And the next death-bolt that flies
May be sent to me or you: 6 While we preach, and while we hear,
Help us, LORD!' each one to think, Vast eternity is near,
I am standing on the brink. 7 If from guilt and sin set free,
By the knowledge of Thy grace, Welcome, then, the call will be
To depart and see Thy face.
With new years, new mercies come;
Is their last, which leads them home.
1 My belper GOD! I bless His Name: The same His pow'r, His
grace The tokens of His friendly care
Open, and crown the closing year.
Supported by His guardian hand;
3 Thus far His arm hath led me on
Thus far I make His mercy known;
New mercies shall new songs demand. 4 My grateful soul on Jordan's shore
Shall raise one sacred pillar more;
New Year 1 COME, Thou Fount of ev'ry blessing,
Tune my heart to sing Thy grace! Streanis of mercy, never ceasing,
Call for songs of ceaseless praise :
Sung by flaming tongues above;
Loudly to proclaim Thy love. ? Here I raise my Ebenezer,
Hither by Thy help I'm come; And I hope, by Thy good pleasure,,
Safely to arrive at home 1001? JESUS sought me when a stranger : ****
Wand'ring from the fold of Ğop; He, to save my soul from'danger;
Interposed His precious blood. 3 0! to grace how great a debtor ! Le 1417 Daily I'm constrain'd, to be
!!! Let that grace, LORD, like a fetter, la
Bind my wand'ring heart to Thee!
