I love thy kingdom, Lord
I send the joys of earth away

Jesus shall reign where'er the sun
Jesus, lover of my soul
Jerusalem! my happy home

L
Lord, thou wilt hear me when I pray
Lo! what an entertaining sight
Lord, in the morning thou shalt hear
Let Zion praise the mighty God
Let all the earth their voices raise
Life is the time to serve the Lord
Lo! he comes, with clouds descending

M
My God, how endless is thy love
My God, accept my early vows
My few revolving years
My son, know thou the Lord

[blocks in formation]

N Now the shades of night are gone Now from labour and from care Now in the heat of youthful blood

Softly now the light of day
Saviour, breathe an evening blessing
Safely through another week
Soon as the morning rays appear
Safely through another week
Sweet is the time of spring
Stern winter throws his icy chains
Sing to the Lord, exalt him high
Saviour, visit thy plantation
Sovereign of worlds above
Sovereign of worlds! display thy power
Salvation, O the joyful sound
Show pity, Lord; O Lord, forgive
Stretch'd on the cross the Saviour dies
Sweet is the scene when Christians die
Shine on our souls, eternal God

т Thou that dost my life prolong

Thou, gracious Lord, art my defence I

Thrice happy souls, who, born of heaven ! Thus far the Lord has led me on

The day is past and gone
The night shall hear me raise my song
Thou, Lord, through every changing scene
Thine earthly Sabbaths, Lord, we love
The flow'ry spring, at God's command
The winter is over and gone
To praise the ever bounteous Lord
The Lord is good, the heavenly king
'Twas for my sins, my dearest. Lord
'Twas by an order from the Lord
That once lov'd form, now cold and dead
The grave is now a favour'd spot
"Tis finish'd, the conflict is past
The time is short! Sinners beware
Thee we adore, Eternal Name
To-morrow, Lord, is thine

That awful day will surely come
% There is an hour of hallow'd peace

There is a land of pure delight
There is an hour of peaceful rest

made from the “Church Psalmody," by Messrs. Mason and Green; from the General Assembly's Psalms and Hymns; the “ Village Hymns;" “ Sacred Ly. rics," by Mr. Beman; Dr. Dwight's Psalms and Hymns; and Hymns by Dr. Alexander. The book is committed to the blessing of God, with the prayer that it may be one of the aids by which the great ends of the family organization may be secured; and a means by which the worship of God may be extended and perpetuated amidst the families of this land.
