NATURE AND THE SCRIPTURES.
Behold, the morning sun
Begins his glorious way!
And life and light convey.
It spreads diviner light;
And gives the blind their sight.
Are thy directions given!
But find the path to heaven
And I would fain obey;
To guide me, lest I stray.
My Maker and my King,
To thee my all I owe;
From whence my blessings flow.
A thousand reasons move, A thousand obligations bind,
My heart to grateful love. 0, let thy grace inspire
My soul with strength divino , Leod my powers to thee aspire,
And all my days be thine.
From The J. S. School-by permissiot
night, Let thy trembling wire Waken dear delight !
Let thy trembling wire Waken dear de - light.
Though the tones of sorrow
Mingle in thy strain,
Pleasure from the pain.
List thy silvery sound
Silence reigns profound.
Gone the noonday glare ;
Stir the midnight air.

ANNIVERSARY OF INDEPENDENCE.
We come, with joy and gladness,
To breathe our songs of praise,
Be mingled in our lays;
This theme of freedom's birth:
Are echoed round the earth.
And thrones and nations hear-
For God the Lord is near:
And raise the humble mind,
Among the good and kind.
Where pride and power are crowned,
Shall shed its pureness round.
And in thy shadow rest;
And trusted, and were blest.
Music from S. S. Choir.
There's not a faith that's taught by man, That treateth of sal
va - tion's plan, That hath one half the
that which brings our God to view,As loving meand loving you, And
the sto - ry, And nev - er ends the sto - ry.
OUR NATIVE LAND.
Before all lands, in east or west,
With God's best gifts 't is teeming :
It seems but rapture's dreaming.
Of grand and noble daring, When our bold sires, with hope in Glodo Amid the wintry forest trod,
The seed of greatness bearing.
Sing how the glorious spring did dawn,
The songs of toilers sounded ;
Their tyranny was bounded.
To all the world I give my hand,
I seek her good, her glory;
But I love the land that bore me.
