HYMN I.
Come, let us go into the thick
shade, for it is noon-day, and the
summer sun beats hot upon our
heads.
The shade is pleasant and
cool; the branches meet above
our heads, and shut out the sun
as with a green curtain; the
grass is soft to our feet, and the
clear brook washes the roots of
the trees.
The cattle lie down to sleep
in the cool shade, but we can do
what is better; we can praise the
great God who made us. He
made the warm sun and the cool
shade; the trees that grow up-
wards, and the brooks that

run murmuring along. All the
things that we see are His work.

HYMN II.
Behold the Shepherd of the
flock; he taketh care of his
sheep, he leadeth them among
clear brooks, he guideth them to
fresh pasture; if the young
lambs are weary, he carrieth
them in his arms; if they wan-
der, he bringeth them back.
But who is the shepherd's
Shepherd ? who taketh care of
him? who guideth him in the
path he should go and if he
wander, who shall bring him
back ?
God is the shepherd's Shep-
herd; He is the Shepherd over
all; He taketh care of ill; the

whole earth is HIs fold; we are
all His flock; and every herb,
and every green field is the pas-
ture which He hath prepared
for us.

HYMN IIh
Come, let us go forth into the
fields; let us see how the flowers
spring; let us listen to the war-
bling of the birds, and sport our-
selves upon the new grass.
The winter is over and gone,
the buds come out upon the
trees, the crimson blossoms of
the peach and the nectarine are
seen, and the green leaves
sprout.
The young animals of every
kind are sporting about; they
feel themselves happy, they are

glad to be alive,-they thank
Him that has made them alive,
They can thank Him with
their hearts, but we can thank
Him with our tongues; we are
better than they, and can praise
Him better.
The birds can warble, and the
young lambs can bleat; but we
can open our lips in His praise,
we can speak of all His good-
ness.
Therefore we will thank Him
for ourselves, and we will thank
Him for those that cannot speak.
Trees that blossom, and little
lambs that skip about, if you
could you would say how good
He is; but you are dumb, we
will say it for you. On every
hill, and in every green field, we
will offer the sacrifice of thanks-
giving, and the incense of praise.
