Lord, what wilt thou have me to do?-ACTS ix. 6.
LORD, thou hast won, at length Iyield;
2 All that a wretch could do I tried,
3 [Now, since thou hast thy love reveal'd,
Could'st thou for such a sinner bleed?
4 Now, Lord, I would be thine alone,

268. Exhorted to Watch. 8—7—7.
But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should
They shall see the SAVIOUR then:
3 Waiting for our Lord's returning,
4 Being of the favour'd number,
Whom the SAVIOUR calls his own, 'Tis not meet that we should slumber, We to whom his grace is known: This should be his people's aim: Still to glorify his name.
269. Exhorted to Watchfulness. 7s.
And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.-ROMANS Xiii. 11, 12.

For shelter from impending doom: Smile on me, gracious Lord, and show Thyself the friend of sinners now!

271. Grateful for Salvation. C.M.
I waited patiently for the Lord; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our GOD.-PSALM xl. 1 to 3.
ARISE, my soul, my joyful powers,
