IN the last days it shall | come—to pass,
That the mountain of the house of the Lord

shall be es | tablished—in the top of-the mountains, And it shall be exalted a | bove—the hills; And | people—shall | flow—unto | it.

And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the

Lord, And to the house of the God-of Jacob: And he will teach us of his ways, and we will |

walk in-his paths : For the law shall . go forth of Zion, and the

word-of the Lord from Jerusalem.

And he shall judge a mong-many | people,
And rebuke strong | nations—a | fa-r | off ;
And they shall beat their l' swords—into |

plowshares, And their spe—ars | in—to | pruning hooks ;

Nation shall not lift up a sword against nation,

neither shall they learn | war—any more. But they shall sit every man under his / vine

and under-his fig tree; And none shall make them-afraid : For the mouth of the Lord—of | hosts—hath |

spoken it.

IF in this life only we have | hope—in | Christ,
We are—of | all men-most | miserable.
But now is Christ risen—from the dead,
And become the first—fruits of them—that |

slept.

For since by man-came | death,
By man came also the resur | rec—tion / of-

the dead. For as in Adam-all die, Even so in Christ shall | all—be | made—a | live.

Behold, I show you—a | mystery :
We shall not all sleep, but I we—shall | all—be |

changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, |

at the-last | trump: For the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall

be raised incorruptible, and | w-e | shallbe changed.

For this corruptible must put on | in—cor

ruption, And this mortal must | put-on | im-mor 1.

tality. So when this corruptible shall have put on | in

corruption, And this mortal shall have put-on | im—mor |

tality,

Then shall be brought to pass the saying | that

is written,
Death is | swallow—ed | up—in | victory.
O death, where | is—thy | sting?
O | grave,—where | is—thy | victory?

;

The sting of death—is sin
And the strength--of sin-is the law.
But thanks be to God, which giveth us—the |

victory,
Through our | Lo—rd | Je-sus Christ.

“THY will be done!” || In devious way

The hurrying stream of | life may | run || Yet still our grateful hearts shall say |

Thy will be done!"

• Thy will be done !" || If o'er us shine

A gladdening and a prosp'rous / sun || This prayer will make it more divine 1

* Thy will be done !" ||

Thy will be done !" || Though shrouded o'er

Our | path with | gloom, || one comfort-one Is ours :-to breathe, while we adore |

“Thy will be done!" ||

MY soul doth magni | fy—the Lord,
And my spirit hath re I joiced-in God,-my |

Saviour.
For he hath-re | garded
The lowliness—of | his-hand | maiden:

For be hold—from henceforth
All gener | ations—shall | call-me | blessed.
For he that is mighty hath | magni—fied | me;
And | ho—ly | is—his name.

And his mercy is on them—that I fear him
Through | out—all gen—er | ations.
He hath showed strength-with his arm;
He hath scattered the proud in the imagini

a-tion of-their hearts.

He hath put down the mighty | from—their |

seat, And hath ex alted—the humble—and | meek. He hath filled the hungry-with good things ; And the rich he hath sent empty—a | way.

He remembering—his mercy,
Hath | holpen—his servant | Israel ;
As he promised to our—forefathers,
Abraham | and-his seed-for ever.

14.

FROM the recesses of a lowly spirit
My humble prayer ascends, 0 | Fa—ther! |

hear it! ||
Upsoaring on the wings of fear and meekness,

For | give its | weakness.

I know, I feel, how mean and how unworthy
The trembling sacrifice I pour-before Thee ; ||
What can I offer in Thy presence holy

But sin—and | folly ?

For in thy sight—who every bosom viewest-
Cold are our warmest vows, and | vain-our |

truest ; || Thoughts of a hurrying hour, our lips repeat them,

Our | hearts—for I get them.

We see Thy hand, it leads and it supports us ; We hear Thy voice-it | counsels—and it |

courts us ; 11 And then we turn away—and still Thy kindness ||

Par | dons—our blindness.
