3 So shall our children learn the road
That leads them to their fathers' God,
Shall infant minds with knowledge shine. 4 So shall the haughty soul submit,
With children placed at Jesus' feet;
C. M. [#]
'Tis daily my delight,
Divine advice by night.
To meditate thy word ;
To hear thy gospel, Lord.
Nor shall thy word be sold
Nor heaps of shining gold.
Thy promises of grace
HYMN 276. L. P. M. [#]
Holy Scriptures. 1 How precious, Lord, thy holy word! What light and joy its truths afford
To souls benighted and distressed ! Thy precepts guide our doubtful way; Thy love forbids our feet to stray ;
Thy promise leads our hearts to rest.
These are our study and delight:
Appears so pleasing to the sight. 3 Thy threatenings wake our slumbering eyes, And warn us where our danger lies;
But 'tis thy holy gospel, Lord,
And gives a free, but large reward.
HYMN 277. C. M. [#]
Consolation from the Scriptures.
Our lasting heritage ;
Our warmest thoughts engage. 2 'Tis like the sun, a heavenly light,
That guides us all the day,
And, through the dangers of the night,
A lamp to lead our way.
Where springs of life arise ;
There boundless glory lies.
It makes our sorrows blessed ;
And an eternal rest.
HYMN 278. L. M. [#]
A fiery pillar went before,
And lessen the fatigues they bore. 2 Such is thy glorious word, O God !
'Tis for our light and guidance given ; It sheds a lustre all abroad,
And points the path to bliss and heaven. 3 It fills the soul with sweet delight,
And quickens its inactive powers ; It sets our wandering footsteps right,
Displays thy love, and kindles ours. 4 Its promises rejoice our hearts;
Its doctrines are divinely true ; Knowledge and pleasure it imparts,
And comforts and instructs us too.
HYMN 279. S. M. [#]
Scripture a Guide.
By inspiration given !
To guide our souls to heaven.
In this dark vale of tears ;
And quells our rising fears.
Of life, shall guide our way,
Of an eternal day.
TRIUMPH OF OHRISTIANITY.
HYMN 280. C. M. [#]
Triumph of Christianity.
In latter days shall rise
And draw the wondering eyes. 2 To this, the joyful nations round,
All tribes and tongues, shall flow;
Up to this mountain of their God,
With songs of triumph go. 3 The beams that shine from Zion's hill
Shall lighten every land ; The King
who reigns in Salem's towers Shall the whole world command. 4 No war shall rage ; no hostile feuds
Disturb those peaceful years : To plough-shares men shall beat their swords,
To pruning-hooks their spears. 5 No longer host, encountering host,
Shall crowds of slain deplore;
And study war no more.
The gladly solemn sound;
To earth's remotest bound,
Commissioned from above,
The Messenger of love :
year of jubilee is come ;
The news of pardoning grace;
