The devout request. 1 NATHER, whate'er of earthly bliss,

Retirement. 1 VAR from the world, O Lord, I flee,

Her solitary lays;

Evening twilight. 1
From ev'ry cumb’ring care,
In humble, grateful pray’r.
And all His promises to plead,
Where none but God can hear. 3 I love to think on mercies past,
And future good implore,
On Him whom I adore.
Of brighter scenes in heav'n ;
While here by tempests driv’n.
May its departing ray

And we, a lonely band,
To bless thy fost'ring hand.
To praises low as ours ?
The song which meekness pours.
As we before thee pray;

Thine everlasting peace !
A flock by Jesus led ;
In glory on our head.
And thou wilt bless our way:

Which crowns our families with peace; From thee they spring, and by thy hand,
They have been, and are still sustain'd. 2 To God, most worthy to be prais’d,
Be our domestic altars rais'd;
Who, Lord of heav'n, scorns not to dwell
With saints, in their obscurest cell.
Morning and night present its vows;
Be taught thy precepts and thy grace.
The honors of thy glorious name;
HYMN 121, P. M. 7.
Let us now a blessing seek
On th' approaching Sabbath day:
Emblem of eternal rest.
Through the week,our praise demand :
by Almighty pow'r,
Only made returns of sin.
Through the dear Redeemer's name,

May we rest this night with thee,
May we feel thy presence near !
When we in thy house appear.
Conquer sinners, comfort saints;
Bring relief for all complaints :
all our Sabbaths prove,

Prepare us to receive thy word;
And faith be mixt with what we hear. 2 Distracting thoughts and cares remove,
And fix our hearts and hopes above;
And satisfied with living bread. 3 To us thy sacred word apply,
With sov'reign pow'r and energy ;

Our God forever.
And neither knows measure nor end; 2 'Tis Jesus, the first and the last,
Whose spirit shall guide us safe home, We'll praise him for all that is past,
And trust him for all that's to come.
Declension of Religion lamented.
NCE, O Lord, thy garden flourish'd,
Ev'ry part look'd gay and green ;
Happy seasons we have seen !
And a sad decline we see ;
Help can only come from thee.
; Some, alas ! we fear are blighted,
Scarce a single leaf they show. 4 Dearest Saviour, hasten hither,
Thou canst make them bloom again ;
Prayer for a Revival.
Grant us, Lord, a gracious rain!
Unless thou return again.
