And labouring while we time redeem,
Our hands with work, our hearts with zeal;
Becomes a sacrifice divine,
And like the blessed spirits above,
CHRISTIAN ORDINANCES AND INSTITUTIONS.
10s & 11 s.
E servants of God, Your Master proclaim, And publish abroad His wonderful name; The name all-victorious Of Jesus extol; His kingdom is glorious, And rules over all.
2 The waves of the sea Have lift up their voice, Sore troubled that we In Jesus rejoice;
The floods they are roaring, But Jesus is here; While we are adoring, He always is near. 3 God ruleth on high, Almighty to save; And still he is nigh, His presence we have; The great congregation His triumph shall sing, Ascribing salvation To Jesus our King.
4 "Salvation to God Who sits on the throne," Let all cry aloud, And honour the Son;
Our Jesus's praises The angels proclaim, Fall down on their faces, And worship the Lamb. 5 Then let us adore, And give him his right, All glory and power, All wisdom and might, All honour and blessing, With angels above, And thanks never-ceasing, And infinite love.
860 "Peter and John went up into the temple at the hour of prayer."-Acts iii. 1.
WHO Jesus our example know,
And his Apostles' footsteps trace,
Frequent the consecrated place At every solemn hour of prayer, And meet the God of mercy there. 2 His offering pure we call to mind, There on the golden altar laid, Whose Godhead with the manhood joined, For every soul atonement made; And have whate'er we ask of God, Through faith in that all-saving blood.
"Again His disciples were within, and
IF but one faithless soul be here,
Jesus assembled with thine own,
2 Slower of heart than Thomas, I,
For faith and pardon at thy feet:
Or feel the blood that flows for me.
3 But nothing can obstruct thy way
And me among thy people bless,
4 Occasion from my slowness take
And bless them all by blessing me.

“And we kneeled down on the shore and prayed."—Acts xxi. 5.
1 WO or three in Jesu's name,
According to his word
Humbly met, may boldly claim
The members and their Head.
2 How august the hallowed place
While the Spirit of love and prayer
For a week-day service.
BEHOLD us, Lord, a little space
From daily tasks set free,
And met within thy holy place
2 Yet these are not the only walls
3 Then let us prove our heavenly birth
And claim the kingdom of the earth
Work shall be prayer, if all be wrought
And prayer, by thee inspired and taught,
ESUS, where'er thy people meet, There they behold thy mercy-seat; Where'er they seek thee thou art found, And every place is hallowed ground.
2 For thou, within no walls confined,
Such ever bring thee where they come,
4 Here may we prove the power of prayer,
And bring all heaven before our eyes.
Lord, we are few, but thou art near;
M. "The preparation of the heart."—Prov. xvi. 1. 865
Though dust and ashes in thy sight,
2 We perish if we cease from prayer,
3 Give deep humility; the sense
4 Faith in the only sacrifice
To build our hopes, to fix our eyes
Patience to watch, and wait, and weep,
6 Give these, and then thy will be done;
