All hail, Redeemer of Mankind
As every night lays down our head
As we tread life's dreary journey
Before the door of every heart
Blessed Angels! while we silent lie
Blest be Thy love, dear LORD
Blest thought! He now, Who wept at Lazarus’ grave
By the picture of Thy Passion
Come Holy Ghost, our hearts inspire
Come thou weary wandering child
Draw me, my Saviour, gently lead
Father, if Thou willing be
Forth in Thy Name, O LORD, I go
GOD of God, for man decreed
Go forth, my soul, another day -
Holy Jesu! I have crowned Thee
How can I seek Thy Presence, O my God
In God the Father I believe
JESU, Life of those who die
Jesu, lover of my soul
JESUS treads the floor of Heaven
Loving Saviour hear me
My soul and body faint with pain
Now it belongs not to my care
O LORD, on Whom alone I rest

O may my Guardian, while I sleep
Omnipresent God, Whose aid
Open thine eyes, my soul, and see
Our Father Which in Heaven art
Pilgrim, are you heavy laden
Rock of Ages! cleft for me
Said I not so, that I would sin no more
Saviour most loving, bending before Thee -
Shine on our souls, Eternal GOD
Spirit of love be in our heart
Taught by Temperance, we abstain
Thou shalt have no more Gods than me
Time himself, with all his legions
We believe, O LORD, In Thee
We pray for wisdom more and more
What time, my soul, sad thoughts prevail -
Why should I fear the darkest hour -
With all the powers my poor soul hath
When in the night I sleepless lie
When languor and disease invade
When pleasure shines upon my way -

He, that presents the following Papers to " thee, designs to teach thee, as the Church was taught in the early Days of the Apostles, to believe the Christian Faith, and " to understand it; to represent plain Rules " of good Life; to describe easy Forms of Prayer; to bring into your Assemblies

Hymns of Glorification and Thanksgivings, and Psalms of Prayer. By these easy paths they lead Christ's little ones into the Fold of their Great Bishop. And if by this any Service be done to God (or man] it is hoped that God will " accept it. And it is Reward enough, if by my Ministry God will bring it to pass " that any Soul shall be instructed and brought into that State of good things, that it shall rejoyce for ever. But do thou pray for him that desires " this to thee, and endeavour it.

INTRODUCTION.

To serve God is to reign: to work for God is to rest. This is our privilege: may it be our experience!

We commonly describe the Christian Life as a race, a strife, or a journey. So Holy Scripture speaks of it, and so it is. But our statements are incomplete. We have to keep in mind that the Christian race and its prize save us from a more wearisome course of sin,—that the Christian's strife and his victory take the place of a more severe struggle, whose only end would have been defeat and death,—that the Christian in his journey has already come to Mount Sion and to JESUS. If toil is the lot of the righteous," there is no peace to the wicked.”

PART I. Faith is the first Resting-place of the soul. We know nothing of the unseen, till GoD supplies that knowledge, giving us faith to receive it. In faith we rest, and are no more unsettled by any private opinions of our own. The teaching of God in His Church is our guide. Believing in JESUS we find rest unto our souls. In the Sacraments which the LORD commanded we have union with Him, receiving grace and power to do the will of God.

PART II. Many of us forget that we were purged from our old sins: backsliders even forget their Resting-place in the Church of God. The way of Repentance is the only way of return: each step, painful though it be, is a foretaste of rest, and is itself a refreshing after the weariness of sin.

PART III. The restored soul finds pasture. The Sacramental Presence is its stay. When God reveals Himself in
