From earth above the fkies; And, O ye nations all around!

Let praife as incenfer rise. O praife the Lord, hallelujah, Hallelujah, O praife the Lord!

EVENING Ejaculations.


KShine upon us day and night:

Therewith let our fouls be bleft,
While our bodies are at rest.

And renew our strength with fleep.

3 But fhould thou permit that we
In the night afflicted be;"
O aflift us, by thy pow'r,

To furvive the trying hour.

4 If our mortal change fhould come, Take us to our long fought home: To that glorious land above

Of eternal life and love..

2 But we, the monuments of grace,
The fallen fons of Adam's race,
Above the reft, ought to declare
Thy love and wife paternal care.

Both feen and unfeen, we have found
The hand that faveth from all ill,
To be our God and Saviour' ftill.

And are through Christ from sin set freea.

For wholly in thy grace we trust,
Whofe love is fet upon the just.

From thy most glorious prefence come,
That we may fee thy face;

And ev'ry moment let us prove
A conftant growth in faith and love.

A Figurative Defcription of CHRIT as a SHEPHERD.



HRIST, the GOOD SHEPHERD of his sheep,
Doth fafely keep them from all harm;
But hirelings either fall asleep,
Or fleeth at the wolf's alarm.

2 How bleft then are that little flock,
Who in his paftures fafely feed?
In drought unto the fhady rockk,
And living streams' he them doth lead.
3 He of himself his life laid down,
That he eternal life might give;

And this to all he will make known,
Who ftill on barren mountains live.

4 Though far and wide his fheep have stray'd, Amidit the dark and cloudy day;

They of one. fold fhall all be made,


And their CHIEF SHEPHERD's voice obey.
5 Hence we'll promulge his name with joy,
And gladly fpread the joyful found;
For he at laft will death deftroy,
Till evils no where fhall be found!
