HYMN 30. P. M.
God's Love unchangeable. 1 Come, thou fount of ev'ry blessing, Tune my heart to sing thy praise; Streams of mercy never ceasing,
Call for songs of loudest praise. Teach me some melodious sonnet,
Sung by flaming tongues above : See the mount-I'm fix'd upon
itMount of God's unchanging love.
2 Here I find my richest treasure,
Hither by thy help I'm come;
Safely to arrive at home.
Wand'ring from the fold of God;
Interpos'd his precious blood.
3 O! to grace how great a debtor, Daily I'm constrain❜d to be! Let thy grace now, like a fetter,
Bind my wand'ring heart to thee: Prone to wander, Lord I feel it—
Prone to leave the God I loveHere's my heart-O take and seal it; Seal it for thy courts above.
HYMN 31. P. M.
The Day Star, or spread of Light.
1 When through the cheerless long and gloomy night,
2 Oft to the east he turns his searching gaze,
3 Oh how the sight cheers the desponding soul,
The gospel day-star shines with heavenly fire;
At its approach the shades of doubt retire.
5 Celestial star, dispense thy beams around,
Through the dark region of the human mind,
6 Oh heavenly star! thou art th' unerring sign

Winchester's Farewell-sung in his last moments. 1 Farewell dear friends in Christ below, I bid you all a short adieu; My time is come, I long to go,
I trust I soon my Lord shall view.
2 I thank you for your kindness shown,
Till he from earth your souls shall call.
3 Farewell dear neighbors, brethren, friends,
4 Adieu to you my enemies;
You that have sought to do me harm,
5 I wish you all eternal life,
I owe you not the least ill will;
6 Adieu thou sun, ye stars and moon
No longer shall I need your light;
7 Adieu to all things here below-
Vain world I leave thy fleeting toys;
Adieu to sin, fear, pain and woe,
8 Temptations, troubles, griefs adieu, Sorrows bedew my face no more, I go to pleasures ever new,
Where toils and strifes and griefs are o'er.
9 Now I have done with earthly things,
10 Weep not, dear friends, I tell you all,
11 Father I come to thee on high,
All things below I leave behind;
Is open'd to my joyful mind. 12 Eternity, transporting sound,
While God exists my heaven remains;
When shall we all meet again.
1 When shall we all meet again,
2 Tho' in distant lands we sigh,
3 When the dreams of life are fled,
1 The Lord into his garden comes,
20 that this dry and barren ground
And fruitful soil become ;
The Gloom of Autumn.
1 Hail! ye sighing sons of sorrow,
Silent, all things seem to mourn; Life from vegetation flying,
Brings to mind the mouldering urn.
2 Oft the Autumn tempest rising,
