THIS selection is made in the hope of exciting more general feeling for the spiritual wants of above 800 million of the human race.

For the 200 million who profess Christianity there are yet provided but 6 million Bibles : whilst to the remainder, all the societies together send but 512 missionaries. And to the 12 million of that people to whose Fathers we owe all our Christian knowledge, consolation and hopes, there are but 7 missionaries and 6000 Hebrew new Testaments sent.

- How truly did an inspired writer say, whole world lieth in wickedness !"--Do we believe that the Day-spring from on high has visited Judah in order to give light to them that sit in darkness and the shadow of death? Will any refuse to help these societies who desire toknow that themselves have passed from death unto life by their love of the brethren.

If the aggregate population of the globe be 895,300,000 souls, and we reckon with the ancients that a generation lasts 30 years, then 81,760 drop into eternity every day, or about 56 every minute.

- Arise, Christians! to the work of faith and labor of love with patience of hope ; knowing that your labor shall not be in vain in the Lord. Arise ! while with you it is called to day--and whatever your brand findeth to do, do it with all your might,

before the grave closes upon you, where there is no 1 tworki to device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom ;--nor

repentance

L15

To the Holy Ghost. [Birbeck. P. M.]

CREA
REATOR Spirit ! by whose aid

The world's foundations first were laid ;
Come, visit ev'ry humble mind,
And pour thy joys on all mankind.
From sin and sorrow set us free,

And make us temples fit for thee. 2 Hail! source of uncreated light

Illumine our beclouded sight,
Thrice holy fount, immortal fire,
Our hearts with heavenly love inspire
Come, and thy sacred unction bring

To sanctify us while we sing.
3 Plenteous of grace, descend from high,

Rich in thy seven fold energy;

Thou strength of his alınighty hand Whose power doth heaven and earth command,

Refine and purge our earthly parts

And stamp thine image on our hearts." 4 Create all new, our wills controul,

Subdue the rebel in our soul;
Make us eternal truths receive,
And practice all that we believe.
And lest again we go astray,

Protect and guide us in the way. 5 Immortal honor, endless fame

Attend the Almighty Father's name;
The Saviour Son be glorified
Who for lost man's redemption died ;
And equal adoration be
Eternal Comforter! to thee.

PART THE FIRST.

HYMNS ON THE BIBLE.

1. Light and glory of the Word. [Ling. C. M.]
THE
THE Spirit breathes upon the word

And brings the truth to sight;
Precepts and promises afford

A sanctifying light.
2 A glory gilds the sacred page,

Majestic like the sun;
It gives a light to every age,

It gives,—but borrows none.
3 The hand that gave it still supplies

The gracious light and beat:
His truths upon the nations rise,

They rise, but never set.
4 Eternal thanks, Oh Lord! be thine

For such a bright display,
As makes a worid of darkness shine

With beams of heav'nly day. 5 My soul rejoices to pursue

The steps ot him I love;
Till glory breaks upon my view

In brighter worlds above. 2. The Word precious. [Zion Chapel. P. M.]

Does the word of God afford !
All I want for life or pleasure,
Food and med cine, shield and sword.

Let the world account me poor,
Having this I need no more.
