Birds awake betimes, every morn they sing,
None are tardy there, when the woods do ring; -
So when Sunday comes, this shall be my rule,
Never to be late at the Sabbath School.
When the summer's sun wakes the flowers again,
They the call obey-none are tardy then;
Nor will I forget that it is my rule,
Never to be late at the Sabbath School.

Joy to the earth! the Saviour reigns !

Let men their songs employ;
While fields and foods, rocks, hills and plains,

Repeat the soundling joy.
He rules the world with truth and grace,

And makes the nations prove
The glories of his righteousness,

And wonders of his love.

THE BIBLE.
Father of mercies ! in thy word

What endless glory shines !
Forever be thy name adored,

For these celestial lines.
Here may the wretched sons of want

Exhaustless riches find;
Treasures beyond what earth can grunt,

And lasting as the mind.
Here the Redeemer's welcome voica

Spreads heavenly peace around;
And life and everlasting joys

Attend the blissful sound.
O may these heavenly pages bo

Our study and delight;
And still new beauties may we see,

And still increasing light.

EASTER.
Again the Lord of life and light

Awakes the kindling ray ;
Unseals the eyelids of the morn,

And pours increasing day.
O what a night was that which wrapt

The heathen world in gloom!
O what a sun, which broke, this day,

Triumphant from the tomb !
This day be grateful homage paid,

And loud bosannas sung;
Let gladness dwell in every heart,

And praise on every tongue.

106 I sing the mighty Power of God. C. M.

I sing the wisdom that ordained

The sun to rule the day;
The moon shines full at his command,

And all the stars obey.
I sing the goodness of the Lord,

That filled the earth with food;
He formed the creatures by his word,

And then pronounced them good.
There's not a plant or flower below,

But makes thy glories known;
And clouds arise, and tempests blow,

By order from thy throne.

THE TRIUMPH OF LOVE.

HA SHAHAR

I sing the wondrous power of love,

That rules the human soul,
And bids through realms of life above

The streams of pleasure roll.
I sing the triumph of that grace

That wrought the gospel plan,
That sweetly shone in Jesus' face,

The hope of sinful man.
I sing the glory of that truth

That makes the desert bloom,
That saves the freshness of our youth,

And lights with hope the tomb.
O may my soul begin this hour

A holier life to live!
Then shall I know the wondrous power

The love of God can give.

PROTECTION AND SAFETY.
Unshaken as the sacred hill,

And firm as mountains be,
Firm as a rock, the soul shall rest,

That leans, O Lord, on thee.
Not walls nor hills could guard so well

Old Salern's happy ground,
As those eternal arms of love

That every saint surround.
The Lord is safety and defence,

In danger's fearful hour,
· And they who trust his holy word

Shall know his gracious power.
Deal gently, Lord, with souls sincere,

And lead them safely on,
Within the gates of paradise,

Where Christ, their Lord, is gono.
