2 O, grant that each of us
Now met before thee here,
May meet together thus,
When thou and thine appear:
To thy blest presence may we come,
And dwell in an eternal home.

722. 8 & 7s. M. ADAMS.
Close of Worship.

1 PART in peace! with deep thanksgiving,
Rendering, as we homeward tread,
Gracious service to the living,
Tranquil memory to the dead.

[ocr errors]

2 Part in peace! such are the praises God, our Maker, loveth best; Such the worship that upraises

Human hearts to heavenly rest.

723. 8 & 7s. M. ANON.
Prayer for Guidance.

1 LEAD us, Heavenly Father, lead us
O'er the world's tempestuous sea;
Guard us, guide us, keep us, feed us,
For we have no help but thee;
Still possessing every blessing,
If our God our Father be.

2 Spirit of our God, descending,

Fill our hearts with heavenly joy, Love with kind affections blending,

Pleasures time can never cloy; Thus provided, pardoned, guided, Nothing shall our peace destroy.

724. 8 & 7s. M.

Close of Divine Service.

1 WHAT of truth we have been hearing,
Fix, O Lord, in every heart;
In the day of thy appearing,
May we share thy people's part.

2 Truth! how sacred is the treasure! Teach us, Lord, its worth to know; Vain the hope, and short the pleasure,

Which from other sources flow.

3 Till we leave this world forever,

May we live beneath thine eye;
This our aim, our sole endeavor,
Thine to live, and thine to die.

725. 7s. M.


Prayer for a Blessing.

1 GLORIOUS in thy saints appear;
Plant thy heavenly kingdom here;
Light and life to all impart;
Shine on each believing heart;-

2 And, in every grace complete,
Make us, Lord, for glory meet;
Till we stand before thy sight,
Partners with the saints in light.



726. 7s. M. H. K. WHITE.

1 CHRISTIANS, brethren, ere we part,
Every voice and every heart
Join, and to our Father raise
One last hymn of grateful praise.

2 Though we here should meet no more,
Yet there is a brighter shore;
There, released from toil and pain,
There, we all may meet again.

3 Now to Him who reigns in heaven,
Be eternal glory given!
Grateful for thy love divine,
O, may all our hearts be thine.
