HYMN 50. First Part. L.M.
Give us this day our daily bread. (cont.)

  4 Forgiving grace do thou impart
To cheer and sanctify each heart;
May we in death join with our Head,
And feed on Christ the living bread.

HYMN 50. Second Part. L.M.
Father, feed and bring us safely home!

  1 THRO' all the various shifting scene
Of life's mistaken ill or good;
Thy hand, O God, conducts unseen
The beautiful vicissitude.
  2 Thou givest with paternal care,
Howe'er unjustly we complain,
To each their necessary share
Of joy and sorrow, health and pain.
  3 Trust we to youth, or friends or pow'r,
Fix we on this terrestrial ball?
When most secure, the coming hour,
If thou see fit, may blast them all.
  4 When lowest sunk with grief and shame,
Fill'd with affliction's bitter cup,
Lost to relations, friends and fame,
Thy pow'r ful hand can raise us up.
  5 Thy pow'rful consolations cheer;
Thy smiles suppress the deep-fetch'd sigh;
Thy hand can dry the trickling tear,
That secret wets the orphan's eye.
  6 Thus far sustain'd, and cloth'd and fed,
Thro' life's tumultuous scenes we've come;
Give us this day our daily bread,
And lead, and bring us safely home.

HYMN 51. C.M.
Forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

  1 LORD, at thy feet we sinners lie,
   And knock at mercy's door;

HYMN 51. C.M.
Forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. (cont.)

  1 With heavy heart and downcast eye,
   Thy favour we implore.
  2 In deep distress we seek thy face,
   Forgiveness to receive;
We trust our souls are taught thro' grace,
   Our debtors to forgive.
  3 'Tis pardon, pardon we implore,
   O let thy bowels move!
Thy grace is an exhaustless store,
   And thou thyself art love.
  4 O! for thine own, for Jesus' sake,
   Our many sins forgive;
Thy grace our rocky hearts can break,
   And breaking soon relieve.
  5 Mercy, good Lord, mercy we plead,
   This is the total sum;
Mercy, thro' Christ, mercy we need;
   Lord, let thy mercy come.

HYMN 52. First Part. L.M.

  1 THUS far my God has led me on,
And made his truth and mercy known;
My hopes and fears alternate rise,
And comforts mingle with my sighs.
  2 Thro' this wide wilderness I roam,
Far distant from my blissful home;
Lord, let thy presence be my stay,
And guard me in this dang'rous way.
  3 Temptations ev'ry where annoy,
And sins and snares my peace destroy;
My earthly joys are from me torn,
And oft an absent God I mourn.
  4 My soul with various tempests toss'd;
Her hopes o'erturn'd, her projects cross'd,
