VIII.
HAIL, hail, sweet cherub, charity,
Hail, hail, sweet cherub, charity,

Thou first of virtues, hail :
'Tis thou canst blend in misery's cup,
The soft, the balmy cordial, hope,

When other comforts fail.
Great God of love and light and day,
We humbly here our offerings lay,

Before the footstool of thy throne:
All that we have, O Lord, is thine,
And should we all to thee resign,

We only render back thine own.
To soothe and mitigate distress,

O make us ever free;
And may our hearts in lowliness,

The glory give to thee.

Ibid.

IX. 1 TIME is winging us away

To our eternal home; Life is but a winter's day,

A journey to the tom. 2 Youth and vigor soon will flee,

Blooming beauty lose its charms; All that's mortal soon shall be

Enclosed in death's cold arms. 3 But the Christian shall enjoy

Health and beauty soon, above, Far beyond the world's alloy, Secure in Jesus' love.

Anc. Lyra.

A thousand sacred sweets,
Before we reach the heavenly fields,

Or walk the golden streets. 2 Then let our songs abound, And
