1450
Lead us, Heavenly Father, lead us

O'er the world's tempestuous sea;
Guide us, guard us, keep us, feed us,

For we have no help but Thee,
Yet possessing every blessing

If our God our Father be.
SAVIOUR, breathe forgiveness o'er us,

All our weakness Thou dost know;
Thou didst tread this earth before us,

Thou didst feel its keenest woe;
Lone and dreary, faint and weary,

Through the desert Thou didst go.
Spirit of our God, descending,

Fill our hearts with heavenly joy,
Love with every passion blending,

Pleasure that can never cloy;
Thus provided, pardoned, guided,
Nothing can our peace destroy. Amen.

POWELL.

1451 O Saving Victim, opening wide

The gate of Heaven to man below, Our foes press on from every side,

Thine aid supply, Thy strength bestow.
To Thy great Name be thanks and praise,

Immortal Godhead, One in Three;
O grant us endless length of days,
In our true native land with Thee. Amen.

MILLER, POWELL.

1452
Son of God, for man decreed
To be born the woman's Seed,
Very God and Man indeed,

Hear us, Holy Jesu.

God with us, Emmanuel,
Coming here as Man to dwell,
Saving us when Adam fell,

Hear us, Holy Jesu.
SAVIOUR, full of truth and grace,
Leaving Thine eternal place
To restore our fallen race,

Hear us, Holy Jesu.
Image of the God unseen,
Still

what Thou hadst ever been,
Though in form of Infant mean,

Hear us, Holy Jesu.
Only Victim we can plead,
Our High Priest to intercede,
Advocate in all our need,

Hear us, Holy Jesu.

Powell.

1453 PSALM cxxxii. 8. Arise, O LORD, into Thy restingplace, Thou, and the ark of Thy strength.

9. Let Thy priests be clothed with righteousness, and let Thy saints sing with joyfulness.t

15. This shall be my rest for ever : here will I dwell, for I have a delight therein.

Genesis xxviii. 16, 17. Surely the LORD is in this place. How dreadful is this place! this is none other but the House of God, and this is the gate of Heaven.

AGUTTER, COBB. | Ends here.

1454 PSALM cxxxiv. 1. Behold, now praise the LORD, all ye servants of the LORD:

2. Ye that stand in the house of the LORD, in the courts of the house of our God.

cxxxv. 3. O praise the LORD, for the Lord is gracious : O sing praises unto His Name, for it is lovely.

If to the LORD our hearts we give,

In purity and love,
Then by our Saviour's death we live,

And dwell with Him above.

cxxviii. 5. Lo! thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the LORD.

cxxxiv. 1. Now, praise the LORD, all ye servants of the Lord.

Martin.
1455
Come, my soul, while daylight dying,

Moments flying,
Bring the end to one more day;
Come to Him, Whose mighty powers

Rule the hours,
Know no rest, nor change display.

Come, Holy Ghost, Thy grace impart,
And comfort every longing heart.
Glory, honour, praise, thanksgiving,

To the Living
Mighty, Gracious, Potent One,
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,

Praise and merit
Now, and aye, till time be done. Amen.

MARTIN.
1456
1. Far from my heavenly home,

Far from my Father's breast,
Fainting I cry, “ Blest Spirit, come,

And speed me to my rest.'
2. Upon the willows long,

My harp hath silent hung;
How should I sing a cheerful song

Till Thou inspire my tongue.
3. My spirit homeward turns,

And fain would thither flee;
My heart, O Sion, droops and yearns

When I remember thee.

4. To thee, to thee, I press,

A dark and toilsome road;
When shall I pass the wilderness,

And reach the saints' abode ?
5. GOD, of my life, be near,

On Thee my hopes I cast :
Oh, guide me through the desert here,
And bring me home at last. Amen.

MARTIN, PAGE, 1, 3-5; VINCENT, 1-5.

1457 ISAIAH lv. 1. Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat.

2. Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread ? and your labour for that which satisfieth not ? Hearken diligently unto Me, eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness. 3. Incline your ear, and come unto Me: hear, and

your soul shall live.

1. Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy and eat.

7. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and He will have mercy upon him; and to our GOD, for He will abundantly pardon.

3. Incline your ear, and come unto Me: hear, and your soul shall live.

12. Then ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace : the mountains and hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the fields shall clap their hands. Then ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and hills shall break forth before you into singing.

13. Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, instead of the brier, shall come up the myrtle tree.

1, 12. Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye, come to the waters; then ye shall go out with joy.

MARTIN.

1458
Veni, Sancte Spiritus,
Et emitte colitus
Lucis tuæ radium.

Veni, pater pauperum,
Veni, dator munerum,
Veni, lumen cordium.

Consolator optime,
Dulcis hospes animæ,
Dulce refrigerium ;

In labore requies,
In æstu temperies,
In fletu solatium.

O lux beatissima,
Reple cordis intima
Tuorum fidelium.

Sine tuo numine
Nihil est in homine,
Nihil est innoxium.

Lava quod est sordidum,
Riga quod est aridum,
Rege quod est devium;

Fove quod est languidum,
Flecte quod est rigidum,
Sana quod est saucium.

Da tuis fidelibus
In te confidentibus
Sacrum septenarium ;

Da virtutis meritum,
Da salutis exitum,
Da perenne gaudium. Amen.
