Thc« thy God ordains to bless
The widow and the fatherless.

5 When thine olive plants increasing',
Pour their plenty o'er thy plain,

Grateful thou shalt take the blessing,
But not search the how again.
Chorus. These, kc.

6 When thy favour'd vintage flowing, Gladdens'thy autumnal scene,

Own the hounteous hand bestowing,
Bui thy vine■, the poor shall glean.
Chorus. These, i.c.

7 Still we read thy word declaring
Mercy, Lord, thine own decree;

Mercy, every sorrow sharing,

Warms the heart resembling thee.

8 Still the orphan and the stranger,
Still the widow owns thy care,

Screen'd hy thee in every danger',
Heard hy thee in every prayer.

Halluujah. Amen.


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.

2 The Saviour, when to heaven he rose, In splendid triumph o'er his foes, Scatter'd his gifts on men below,

And wide his royal hounties flow.

3 Hence sprang the Apostle's honour'd

name, /

Sacred beyond heroic fame;
H erce dictates the prophetic sage,
And hence the evangelic page.

4 In lower forms, to bless our eyes, Pastors from hence and Teachers rise; Who, though with feebler rays they

shine, Slid mark a long extended line.

.5 From Christ their varied gifts derrn,
And, fed hy him, their graces Kve;
Whilst guarded hy his potent hand,
Amidst the rage of hell they stand.
S So shall the bright succession nut,
Through all the courses of the sun;
Whilst unhorn churches, hy their car*,
Shall rise and flourish large and fair.
7 Jesus, our Lord, their beans shall

know The spring whence all these blessingi

flow; Pastors and people shout his praise, Through the long round of endlesb d*/t


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.

■3 Wht never the f/ymni ure uii ■' at the celebration of divine service, a certain portion er ertwnt uf the Psalm* of Dai-id in metre shall alto be Htng.

3 Praise God, from whom all hlessings

Praise him, all creatures here helow;

Praise him ahove, ye angelic host;

Praise hather, Son, and Holy Ghost.
'Paraphrase of the 100M Psalm.
K FORE Jehovah's awful throne,
'Ye nations, how with sacred joy;

Know that ihe Lord is God alone;

He can create, and he destroy.

2 His sov'reign power, without our aid.
Made us of clay, and form'd us men;
And when, like wand'ring sheep, we

He hrought us to his fold again.

3 We are hjs people, we his care,'
Our souls, and all our mortal frame;
What lasting honours shall we rear,
Almighty Maker, to thy name?

4 We'll crowd thy gates with thankful

High as the heaven our voices raise;
And earth, with her ten thousand

Shall nil thy courts with sounding

A Wide as the world is thy command,
Vast as eternity thy love;
Firm as a rock thy truth must stand,
When rolling years shall cease to move.
Praise to the Redeemer.
11 TO our Redeemer's glorious name
M. Awake the sacred song!
O may his love (immortal name!)
Tune every heart and tongue.

2 His love, what mortal thought can

What mortal tongue display?
Imagination's utmost stretch
In wonder dies away.

3 He left his radiant throne on high,
Left the hright realms of hliss,

And came to earth to hleed and die!
Was ever love like this?

4 Dear Lord, while we adoring pay
Our humhle thanks to thee;

May every heart with rapture say,

'The Saviour died for me.'
* O may the sweet, the hlissful theme

Fill every heart and tongue;
Till strangers love thy charming name,
And join the sucred song.
Communion with Christ.

And worship at his sacred feet;

In glad returns of grateful love.

4 Yes, Lord, we love, and we adore,
But long to know and love thee more;
And whilst we taste the hread and wine,
Desire to feed on joys divine.

Of pleasure and of sin.

Till it is call'd to soar away
