And perfected by thee.

And let me see thy perfect day.. 5. Behold, for thee I ever wait;

And plant with righteousness divine. 6. If with the wretched sons of men
It still be thy delight to live,

Always abide in me..

8. JOY AND PRAISE.
Hymn 309, s. M. 1. OME, ye that love the Lord,
And let your joys be known; Join in a song with sweet accord,
Whilst ye surround his throne. Let those refuse to sing
Who never knew our God; But servants of the heav'nly King
May speak their joys abroad. 2. The God who rules on high,
Who all the earth surveys, Who rides upon the stormy sky,
And calms the roaring seas:
Our Father and our Love:
To carry us above.
And never, never sin !
Drink endless pleasures in:
To that immortal state,
Should constant joys create.
Glory begun below;
From faith and hope may grow:
And ev'ry tear be dry;

The blessing of God's chosen race, The wisdom coming from above,
The faith that sweetly works by love. 2. Happy beyond description he,
Who knows the Saviour dy'd for me,
And heav'nly understanding gains. 3. Wisdom divine! who tells the price
Of wisdom's costly merchandize ?
And gold is dross compar'd to her. 4. Hor hands are fill'd with length of days,
True riches and immortal praise: Riches of Christ on all bestow'd,
And honour that descends from God.. 5. To purest joys she all invites,
Chaste, holy, spiritual delights;
And and all her flow'ry paths are peace. 6. Happy the man who wisdom gains;
Thrice happy who his guest retains;

Angels and men be join'd,
The Saviour of mankind :
The joy of earth and heav'n ;.
No other help is found,
No other name is giv'n,
It charms the host above ;
And wonder at his love:
And is from sin set free;
'Tis life and victory :
My poor expiring soul
And is at once made whole :
O all-redeeming grace!
To save a fallen race.
Hymn 312. 6. M. T U ceaseless, unexhausted love, Delights our evil to remove,
And help our 'misery. 2. Thou waitest to be gracious still ;
Thou dost with sinners bear,
