From all that dwell below the skies
From earliest dawn of life

God of the morning, at thy voice
God of my life, my morning song
Great God! my early vows to thee
Great God, to thee my ev'ning song
Glory to thee, my God, this night
God of our fathers, by whose hand
Great God! this sacred day of thine
Great God, we sing thy mighty hand
God of our life, thy various praise
Great God, at thy command
Great Saviour, let thy power divine
Great Sun of righteousness arise
Guide me, 0, thou great Jehovah
Great God, whose universal sway
Great God, I own thy sentence just

Hosanna with a cheerful sound
Hail happy day! thou day of holy rest
Hark the voice of love and mercy
Hark—that shout of rapturous joy
How pleasant 'tis to see
How still and peaceful is the grave
How pleasing is the voice
How soft the

words my Saviour speaks
How vain are all things here below
Hail sacred truth! whose piercing eyes
Here, precious Lord, the sacred word
How shall the young secure their hearts
How bless'd the righteous when he dies
Hear what the voice from heaven proclaims
How still and peaceful is the grave
How blest is our brother bereft
How short and hasty is our life
Heav'n is the land where troubles cease

Indulgent God, whose bounteous care
Indulgent Father, by whose care
In mercy Lord, remember me
Inspirer and hearer of prayer
In all my vast concerns with thee
In this calm impressive hour
Is there a time when moments flow
I love to steal awhile away

Once more, my soul, the rising day
O Lord, how many are my foes
Once more my eyes behold the day
O Lord, another day is flown
On thee each morning, O my God
On God the race of man depends
Oh where shall Afric's sable sons
O’er the gloomy hills of darkness
O for a closer walk with God
Oppress'd with guilt and full of fears
O for the death of those
Oh, where shall rest be found
Oh'for a sweet, inspiring ray

Pleasing spring again is here

Religion is the chief concern
Rise, my soul, and stretch thy wings

S
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

Thou that dost my life prolong
Thou, gracious Lord, art my defence
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 pass'd
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

Welcome sweet day of rest
Welcome delightful morn
When on the third auspicious day
While with ceaseless course the sun
When verdure clothes the fertile vale
With songs and honours sounding loud

Who but thou, Almighty Spirit
Wake the Song of Jubilee
While in the tender years of youth
With humble heart and tongue
Whilst thee I seek, protecting Power
When I survey the wondrous cross
When blooming youth is snatch'd away
Why do we mourn departing friends
When I can read my title clear

Preliminary Essay on Family Prayer.

TO PARENTS:

I wish, in this Preliminary Essay, to make a candid appeal to parents on the duty of family prayer. In doing this, I shall assume but one thing as a conceded point-a thing which may commonly, at least, be assumed without danger of error. It is, that you feel a deep interest in the welfare of your children; and are willing to make use of any proper ineans to promote their happiness. This point I assume, because the God of nature has so constituted us, that as a great universal rule parents will love their children; and because no small part of their exertions are called forth with express, and almost sole reference to their present and future bliss. You who are parents, will instantly run over in your minds, many most lender and affectin scenes of watchfulness, care, anxiety, sleeplessness, and toil, to provide for their wants, alleviate their pains, defend them from danger, and train them for future respectability and happiness. The tenderest emotions in your bosoms now, relate to them. Your deepest interest is to see them virtuous, amiable, happy. You would run to their relief in danger, and deny yourself of ease to alleviate their pains in sickness. Your brightest visions of future bliss in this world are connected with their welfare. The loveliest view in the future, is when they stand forth, pure and happy, in bold relief,-single, or
