Charity. 1 Cor. xiii. 2, 7, 12.
All their religion is a dream,
2. Love suffers long with patient eye,
3. Malice and rage, those fires of hell,
4. She ne'er desires nor seeks to know
Nor looks with pride on those below,

Their faith and hope are known no more

Soft be our hearts their pains to feel,
And swift our hands to aid.

5. On wings of love the Saviour flew

The grace that blazes like a sun;
And be her counsellor and stay;

LEST be tie that binds
Bour hearts in christian love;
The fellowship of kindred minds
2. Before our Father's throne We pour our ardent prayers; Our fears, our hopes, our aims are one, Our comforts and our cares.
3. We share our mutual woes: Our mutual burdens bear; And often for each other flows The sympathizing tear.
4. When we asunder part,
6. From sorrow, toil and pain,
ET party names no more
With mutual blessings crown'd.
Hymn 288. s. M.

Hymn 289. L. M.
Love and hatred. Phil. ii. 2. Eph. iv. 30, &c. by the bowels of my God, His sharp distress, his sore complaints,
By his last groans, his dying blood, I charge my soul to love the saints. 3. Clamour, and wrath, and war be gone, Envy and spite for ever cease, Let bitter words no more be known Among the saints, the sons of peace. 3. The Spirit, like a peaceful dove,
Flies from the realms of noise and strife, Why should we vex and grieve his love, Who seals our souls to heav'nly life? 4. Tender and kind be all our thoughts,
Through all our lives let mercy run: So God forgives our num'rous faults For the dear sake of Christ his Son.
Hymn 290. c. M.
IS pure delight, without alloy,
My spirit leaps with inward joy,
2. My passions hold a pleasing reign,
3. This is the grace must live and sing When faith and hope shall cease, Must sound from ev'ry joyful string
Through the sweet realms of bliss. 4. Let life immortal seize my clay,
Let love refine my blood:
Hymn 291. L. M.
