The Fourth of February.

LET US BE GLAD AND REJOICE --- Revelations 19:6, 7.

"My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness, and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips." --- Psalm 63:5.

"Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him; for the marriage of the Lamb is come." --- Revelations 19:6, 7.

What tends not to thy glory, O Lord, and is not thy own work, whatever appearance it may have, is not realy good and profitable; preserve, assist me therefore, to do all things as of thee, in thy sight, and to thy honour.

May my soul be ever magnifying thy name, O my dear Redeemer and Bridegroom, and my whole conversation be directed to thy praise! Grant that my heart and mouth may be ever full of thy great mercies, and overflow continually with thanksgiving.

My God, my King, thy various praise
Demands thanksgiving all my days;
Oh, let thy grace employ my tongue,
Till death and glory raise the song!

Grant, Lord, that every hour may bear
Some thankful tribute to thy ear
And every setting sun may see
New works of duty done for thee.

Thy faithfulness endures the same;
Thy bounty flows an endless stream;
Thy mercy swift, thy anger slow,
But dreadful to the stubborn foe.

And who can speak thy wonderous deeds?
Thy greatness all our thoughts exceeds
Vast and unsearchable thy ways,
Vast and immortal be thy praise.
