HYMN 395. L. M. [#]
The Christian Warfare.
And gird the gospel-armour on;
Where thy great Leader, Christ, has gone. 2 Sin and the world resist thy course;
But these, my soul, are vanquished foes; For Jesus nailed them to the cross,
And sang the triumph when he rose. 3 Then let my soul march boldly on,
Press forward to the heavenly gate; There peace and joy eternal reign,
And glittering robes for conquerors wait. 4 There shall I wear a victor's crown,
And triumph in Jehovah's grace : There all the just, in chorus joined,
Unite to celebrate his praise.
HYMN 396. C. M. [# or b ]
Through life's dark, dangerous road;
And, when I go astray,
To wisdom's better way.
3 Teach me in every various scene
To keep my end in sight ;
Let wisdom guide me right.
And penetrate my heart.
HYMN 397. L. M. [#]
Resistance of Temptations.
See how thy foes against thee rise
; Awake, my soul, or thou art lost. 2 See how rebellious passions rage,
And fierce desires and lusts engage;
And willing souls are captive led. 3 I tread upon enchanted ground;
Perils and snares beset me round;
But most the traitor in my heart.
Blest Saviour, thy immortal shield ;
HYMN 398. L. M. [#]
Prudent Use of Time. 1 God of eternity, from thee
Did infant time his being draw : Moments, and days, and months, and years,
Revolve by thine unvaried law.
Along the mighty stream are borne
That country whence there's no return. 3 Great Source of wisdom, teach our hearts
To know the worth of every hour, That time
bear us on to joys Beyond its measure and its
HYMN 399. L. M. [#]
Gratitude and holy Resolutions.
In lands of ignorance and death,
Within his gospel's favoured clime!
In thinking right and acting well ;
Unbiased, in the sacred page.
To deeds of shining worth aspire ;
4 Strong and more strong tly passions rule,
Advancing still in virtue's school;
HYMN 400. C. M. [#]
Holy Exultations. 1 GLORY to God that walks the sky,
And sends his blessings through, That tells his saints of joys on high,
And gives a taste below. 2 Cheerful I feast on heavenly fruit,
And drink the pleasures down,Pleasures that flow around the foot
Of God's eternal throne.
The shining day appear,
And guilt, and darkness, here? 4 Up to the fields above the skies
My hasty feet would go ;
HYMN 401. S. M. [#]
Heavenly Glory on Earth. 1 COME, ye who love the Lord,
And let your joys be known;
While ye surround the throne. 2 The sorrows of the mind
Be banished from this place;
To make our pleasures less. 3 The men of
From faith and hope will grow. 4 The hill of Zion yields
A thousand sacred sweets,
Or walk the golden streets. 5 Then let our songs abound, And
every tear be dry ; We're marching through Immanuel's ground
To fairer worlds on high.
HYMN 402. L. M. [#]
Shines through the beauties of thy face,
