St. Luke xiii. 24-27.

Enter ere it be too late;

Many ask to enter there
Back to the open and not a single soul escape

2 God from mercy's seat shall rise, Shall this dread sentence sound;

And for ever bar the skies:

Spread black despair around? He will say, “I know you not."

WHERE shall rest be found, 0

Rest for the weary soul ?-
Whose wrath ye cannot bear;

'Twere vain the ocean's depths to And let a Fly to the shelter of his cross,

And find salvation there.

The bliss for which we sigh:
By which the Saviour bled;

'Tis not the whole of life to live,
And the last awful day shall pour

Nor all of death to die.
His blessings on your head.

3 Beyond this vale of tears
HYMN 194. (II. 7.)

There is a life above,
REAT God, what do I see and hear! Unmeasur'd by the flight of years
The end of things created.

And all that life is love.
The Judge of man I see appear, 4 There is a death, whose pang
On clouds of glory seated :

Outlasts the fleeting breath:
Che trumpet sounds: the graves restore O what eternal horrors hang
The dead which they contain'd before: Around the second death!
Prepare, my soul, to meet him.

5 Lord God of truth and grace,
2 The dead in Christ shall first arise, Teach us that death to shun,

At the last trumpet's sounding, Lest we be driven from thy face,
Caught up to meet him in the skies, For evermore'undone.
With joy their Loi surrounding:

HYMN 197. (C. M.)
No gloomy fears their souls dismay,
His presence sheds eternal day

2 Cor. iv. 18.
On those prepar'd to meet him.
3 But sinners, fill'd with guilty fears,

Detain our hearts
Behold his wrath prevailing;

Regardless of immortal joys,
For they shall rise, and find their tears

And strangers to the skies!
And sighs are unavailing:

2 These transient scenes will soon de.
The day of grace is past and gone; They fade upon the sight; [cay,
Trembling they stand before the throne, And quickly will their brightest day
All unprepard to meet him.

Be lost in endless night. ( Great God, what do I see and hear! 3 Their brightest day, alas, how vain! The end of things created!

With conscious sighs we own; The Judge of man I see appear,

While clouds of sorrow, care, and pain,
On clouds of glory seated :

O'ershade the smiling noon.

And view the landscape o'er; In ever blooming prospects rise, Not Jordan's streams, nor death's cold Unconscious of decay.

Through their great Redeemer's might This heav'nly land from ours.

More than conquerors they stand. 3 Bright fields beyond the swelling flood 3 Hunger, thirst, disease unknown, Stand dress'd in living green;

On immortal fruits they feed; So to the Jews fair Canaan stood,

Them the Lamb amidst the throne
While Jordan roll'd between.

Shall to living fountains lead:
But tim'rgus mortals start, and shrink Joy and gladness banish sighs,
To cross the narrow sea;

Perfect love dispels their

God shall wipe a way their tears.
