6 Let humble, penitential wo,
With painful, pleasing anguish flow;

HYMN 97. (L. M.)
St. Matt. x.
Sweetly the gospel trumpet sound;
Where'er the human race is found. 2 The joyful news to all impart,
And teach them where salvation lies;
And wipe the tears from weeping eyes. 3 Be wise as serpents, where you go,
But harmless as the peaceful dove;
That ye’re coinmission'd from above. 4 Freely from me ye have receiv'd,
Freely, in love, to others give;
(L. M.) St. Mark xvi. 15, &c. and St. Matt. xxviii. 18, &c. 1 “Go preach my gospel,” saith the Lord,
“Bid the whole earth my grace receive; Explain to them my sacred word,
6 Bid them believe, obey, and live. 26 I'll make my great commission known,
66 And ye shall prove my gospel true, 6 By all the works that I have done,
66 And all the wonders ye shall do. 36 Go heal the sick, go raise the dead, 66 Go cast out devils in
my name; 5 Nor let my prophets be afraid,
66 Though Greeks reproach, and Jews blaspheme. 4 “While thus ye follow my commands, " I'm with
till the world shall end;
On a bright cloud to heaven he rode; They to the farthest nations spread The grace of their ascended God. HYMN 99.
(L. M.) 1 THE Saviour, when to heaven he rose,
In splendid triumph o'er his foes,
royal bounties flow. 2 Hence sprang the Apostle's honour'd name,
Sacred beyond heroic fame;
And hence the evangelic page.
Pastors from hence and teachers rise;
Still mark a long extended line.
And, fed by him, their graces live;
Amidst the rage of hell they stand. 5 So shall the bright succession run
Through all the courses of the sun;
Shall rise and flourish large and fair.
The spring whence all these blessings flow;
HYMN 100. (L. M.) i FATHER of mercies! bow thine ear,
Attentive to our earnest prayer;
Successful pleaders may they be! 2 How great their work, how vast their charge!
Do thou their anxious souls enlarge;
We share the blessings they obtain. 3 Clothe, then, with energy divine,
Their words, and let those words be thine;
To them thy sacred truth reveal,
Suppress their fear, inflame their zeal. 4 Teach them to sow the precious seed,
Teach them thy chosen flock to feed;
Souls that will well reward their pain. 5 Let thronging multitudes around,
Hear from their lips the joyful sound;
And feel thy new-creating pow'r.
Distressed souls forget their pains;

HYMN 101. (L. M.). ND wilt thou, O Eternal God,
On earth establish thine abode? Then look propitious from thy throne,
And take this temple for thine own. 2 These walls we to thine honour raise,
Long may they echo in thy praise;
With the rich tokens of thy grace.
With all the graces of his train;
foes and cheer his friends.
survey, May it before the world appear, Thousands were born for glory here.
HYMN 102. (L. M.) 1 JESUS shall reign where'er the sun
Does his successive journies run; His kingdom spread from shore to shore, Till moons shall wax and wane no more.
2 To him shall endless prayer be made,
And praises throng to crown his head;
With ev'ry morning sacrifice.
Dwell on his love with sweetest song;
Their early blessings on his name.
The pris’ner leaps to burst his chains;
And all the sons of want are blest.
Death and the curse are known no more: In him the tribes of Adam boast
More blessings than their father lost. 6 Let ev'ry creature rise, and bring
Peculiar honours to our King:
HYMN 103. (L. M.)
Psalm cxvii. 1 FROM all that dwell below the skies,
Let the Creator's praise arise; Jehovah's glorious name be sung
Through ev'ry land, by ev'ry tongue. 2 Eternal are thy mercies, Lord,
And truth eternal is thy word;
HYMN 104. (L. M.) 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 from 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 Convert the nations; far and nigh
The triumphs of the cross record;
(II. 1.) For Missions to the new settlements in the United
States. 1 WHEN, Lord, to this our Western land,
Led by thy providential hand,
To keep them in thy name.
Thy temples there arose;
And blossom'd as the rose.
Within our spreading land!
Still guided by thy hand.
To move each Christian breast; Till heralds shall thy truth proclaim, And temples rise to fix thy name, Through all our desert west. HYMN 106.
On Carmel's blooming height,
The glory, pure and bright:
Stream'd forth from land to land;
