Grateful thou shalt take the blessing,
6 When thy favour'd vintage flowing, Gladdens'thy autumnal scene,
Own the hounteous hand bestowing,
7 Still we read thy word declaring
Mercy, every sorrow sharing,
Warms the heart resembling thee.
8 Still the orphan and the stranger,
Screen'd hy thee in every danger',
At the Ordination or Institution of a Minister.
flATHER of mercies! in thy house 1 We pay our homage and our vows; Whilst with a grateful heart we share These pledges of our Saviour's care.

Prayer for Minister*.
FATHER of mercies! how thine ear, Attentive to our earnest prayer; We plead for those who plead for thee, Successful pleaders may they be!
2 How great their work, how vast their
charge! Do thou their anxious souls enlarge; Their best acquirements are our pain, We share the blessings they ohtain.
3 Clothe, then, with energy divine, Their words, and let those words he
thine; To them thy sacred truth reveal, Suppress their fear, inflame their zeal.'
4 Teach ihem to sow the precious seed, Teach them thy chosen flock to feed; Teach them immortal souls to gainSouls that will well reward their rain*
5 Let thronging multitudes around, Hear from their lips the joyful sound > In humble strains thy grace implore, And feel thy new-creating power.
6 Let sinners break their massy chains. Distressed souls forget their pains; Let light through distant realms be
spread, And Zion rear her drooping bead.
