Preface 



This book completes the Pilgrim series of hymn books. It is the Pilgrim 
Hymnal enlarged, enriched and revised. It profits by the test of use in wor- 
ship, new material which has come to light or gained favor, and the general 
advance in the character of hymnals coming to be sought by churches and offered 
to them. The Pilgrim Hymnal is now able more freely to pursue its distinctive 
ideal, — a book of moderate size, admitting nothing which has not poetical or 
musical merit, no verse which is not a hymn lyrical and worshipful, no tune 
which is not singable, devout, and congenial to its appointed hymn ; hospitable 
to the new from every source, yet giving the larger place to the old hymns 
and tunes of proved worth and enduring vitality. Any congregation will find 
itself at home in this book, meeting at every opening known and loved 
hymns and their familiar tunes. Hymns that have not been wisely mated by 
earlier custom are fitted with worthy and expressive tunes. For this purpose, 
and to serve peculiar meters, some welcome additions in music less familiar or 
wholly new will be found. New hymns also, timely and beautiful, the better 
enable the book in this edition *' to respond to the yearning of the life and 
faith of to-day for more hymns to express communion with God in his near- 
ness and living presence, fellowship with Christ, enthusiasm for humanity, the 
passion of service, and consecration to the Kingdom of God on earth." 

In the editing of the hymns, no pains have been spared, to recover the ori- 
ginal text, which is given preference unless some variation has rightly become 
established or is clearly needed to remove offence and better fit the hymn for 
singing and worship, to choose such stanzas as make the hymn a unity, brief 
enough to be sung as a whole, and so to classify the hymns as to encourage use 
of the full resources of the book, and help interpret the hymns. Further to 
define and bring out the meaning an expressive title is placed over each hymn. 

When the title is one adopted by the author it is set in quotation marks. 

Over translations the first line of the original is generally used as title. 

To show that a hymn has in any particular been altered the author's name 
is given in italics. 

In the case of a few longer hymns parentheses are placed about the numbers 
of such verses as may ordinarily be omitted in the interest of brevity and unity. 

The hymnal, with new reason, may now claim to be " the product of the 
churches for which it is prepared." It has been tried in their worship, and 
reshaped in the light of their experience, approval and criticism. It loyally 
maintains the continuity of hymnology in our free churches, for though catholic 



Preface 

in its inclusion of whatever is good, and serviceable for us, from hymns ancient 
and modern of all communions, the substance of it consists of hymns which our 
fathers sang and of present day successors of that stock. 

Many generous and painstaking helpers have cooperated with us in the 
making of this, as of the first edition, some of whom are gratefully named in 
the Acknowledgments on page i, at the close of the book. Others no less willing 
and serviceable must of necessity go unmentioned. No doubt they will count 
their reward great, as we shall ours, if among the churches we have labored to 
serve there shall be found of the Father more of such as he seeks, who worship 
him in spirit and in truth: j

Casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea,

Which wert and art and evermore shalt be.

•Though the eye of sinful man thy glory may not see. 

Only thou art holy, there is none beside thee. 
Perfect in power, in love and purity.

2 Far above that arch of gladness, 
Far beyond these clouds of sadness. 

Are the many mansions fair. 
Far from pain and sin and folly. 
In that palace of the holy, 

I would find my mansion there. 



Lift up Tour Hearts 

3 Where the Lamb on high is seated. 
By ten thousand voices greeted. 

Lord of lords, and King of kings ! 
Son of Man! they crovv^n,they crown him, 
Son of God ! they own, they own him j 

With his name the palace rings. 



4 Blessing, honor, without measure. 
Heavenly riches, earthly treasure. 

Lay we at his blessed feet : 
Poor the praise that now we render, 
Loud shall be our voices yonder. 

When before his throne we meet.

2 O tell of his might, O sing of his grace, 
Whose robe is the light, whose canopy space ; 

His chariots of wrath the de6p thunder-clouds form, 
And dark is his path on the wings of the storm. 

3 Thy bountiful care what tongue can recite } 
It breathes in the air, it shines in the light, 

It streams from the hills, it descends to the plain, 
And sweetly distils in the dew and the rain. 

4 Frail children of dust, and feeble as frail, 
In thee do we trust, nor find thee to fail : 

Thy mercies how tender, how firm to the end. 
Our Maker, Defender, Redeemer and Friend.

1 Ye servants of God, your Master proclaim. 
And publish abroad his wonderful name ; 

The name all victorious, of Jesus extol ; 
His kingdom is glorious, and rules over all. 

2 God ruleth on high, almighty to save ; 
And still he is nigh — his presence we have. 

The great congregation his triumph shall sing. 
Ascribing salvation to Jesus, our King.

^ Psalm One Hundred and Four' 
1 The earth where we dwell, that journeys in space, 

With air as a robe thou wrappest around : 
Her countries she turneth to greet the sun's face, 
Then plungeth to slumber in darkness profound. 

3 All seemeth so sure, yet naught doth remain: 
Unending their change obeys thy decree : 

The valleys of ocean stand up a dry plain, 

Thou whelmest the mountains beneath the deep sea. 

4 O God, thou art great ! no greatness I see, 
Except thee alone, thy praise to record. 

On all thy works musing my pleasure shall be : 

My joy shall be singing, ' My soul, praise the Lord ! * 

'Yattendon Hymnal ', 1899 

(^Concluded) ^ Praise ^ Te Servants of the Lord' 

3 Salvation to God, who sits on the throne ! 
Let all cry aloud, and honor the Son. 

Of Jesus the praises the angels proclaim. 

Fall down on their faces and worship the Lamb. 

4 Then let us adore, and give him his right. 
All glory and power, and wisdom and might. 

All honor and blessing, with angels above, 
And thanks never ceasing, and infinite love.

Eternal, bid thy Spirit rest, 

And make our secret soul to be 
A temple pure, and worthy thee :

When earth and heaven shall melt away, 
Thy flock, redeemed from sinful stain, 
Shall swell the sound of praise again :

Let the Creator's praise arise :

Through all our life be near us, 
With ever joyful hearts 

And blessed peace to cheer us. 
And keep us in his grace, 
And guide us when perplexed. 
And free us from all ills

The Lord of Truth and Right 



2 That truth, O Lord, we seek, 

In spirit meek and lowly ; 
To all who learn or teach, 

Give wisdom pure and holy. 
In solemn awe we bend. 
All wondering round thy throne ; 
And thee, our Lord, our Hfe, 
Our joy, our gladness, own. 



3 All praise and thanks to thee, 
Eternal Lord, be given. 

For all thy help on earth. 
For all our hopes of heaven ; 

Thy name, above, below. 

Through aeons yet to come. 

All saints and angels sing. 

Their light, their peace, their home !

Praise is Comely 
2 Thou who art beyond the farthest 4 Here, great God, to-day we offer 



Mortal eye can scan. 
Can it be that thou regardest 

Songs of sinful man ? 
Can we feel that thou art near us. 
And wilt hear us ? 
Yea, we can. 



Of thine own to thee ; 
And for thine acceptance proffer. 

All unworthily, 
Hearts and minds, and hands and voices. 
In our choicest 
Melody. 



3 Yea, we know thy love rejoices 5 Honor, glory, might, and merit, 

O'er each work of thine ; Thine shall ever be. 

Thou didst ears and hands and voices Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, 

For thy praise combine ; Blessed Trinity : 

Craftsman's art and music's measure Of the best that thou hast given 

For thy pleasure Earth and heaven 

Didst design. Render thee.

2 Ye blessed souls at rest, 

Who ran this earthly race, 
And now, from sin released. 
Behold the Saviour's face, 
God's praises sound, 
As in his light 
With sweet delight 
Ye do abound. 



3 Ye saints who toil below. 

Adore your heavenly King, 
And onward as ye go 

Some joyful anthem sing ; 
Take what he gives 
And praise him still. 
Through good or ill. 
Who ever lives. 



4 My soul, bear thou thy part. 
Triumph in God above. 
And with a well-tuned heart 
Sing thou the songs of love 
Let all thy days 
Till life shall end, 
Whate'er he send, 
Be filled with praise.

1 Lord of the worlds above. 

How pleasant and how fair 
The dwellings of thy love. 

Thy earthly temples, are : 
To thine abode 
My heart aspires. 
With warm desires 
To see my God. 

2 O happy souls that pray 

Where God delights to hear ! 
O happy men that pay 

Their constant service there ! 
Thev praise thee still ; 
And happy they 
That love the way 
To Zion's hill. 



3 They go from strength to strength. 

Through this dark vale of tears. 
Till each arrives at length. 
Till each in heaven appears : 
O glorious seat. 

When God, our King, 
Shall thither bring 
Our willing feet ! 

4 God is our sun and shield. 

Our light and our defence ; 
With gifts his hands are filled ; 
We draw our blessings thence. 
Thrice happy he, 
O God of hosts. 
Whose spirit trusts 
Alone in thee.

O Worship the Lord in the Beauty of Holiness 

2 Low at his feet lay thy burden of carefulness, 

High on his heart he will bear it for thee. 
Comfort thy sorrows, and answer thy prayerfulness. 
Guiding thy steps as may best for thee be. 

3 Fear not to enter his courts in the slenderness 

Of the poor wealth thou wouldst reckon as thine: 
Truth in its beauty, and love in its tenderness. 
These are the offerings to lay on his shrine. 

4 These, though we bring them in trembling and fearfulness, 

He will accept for the Name that is dear ; 
Mornings of joy give for evenings of tearfulness, 
Trust for our trembling, and hope for our fear.

Inhabitest the humble mind ; Thy former mercies here renew ; 

Such ever bring thee where they come, Here to our waiting hearts proclaim 
And going, take thee to their home. The sweetness of thy saving name.

To strengthen faith, and sweeten care. 

To teach our faint desires to rise. 

And bring all heaven before our eyes.

With thy gracious presence cheer us, 
Hither let thy kingdom come.

* f^ho JVeri and Art and Evermore Shalt Be ' 

2 Life and death, thy creatures, praise thee, Mighty Giver : 
Praise and prayer are rising in thy beast and bird and tree : 
Lo ! they praise and vanish, vanish at thy bidding, — 

Who wert and art and evermore shalt be. 

3 Light us, lead us, love us ! cry thy groping nations, 
Pleading in the thousand tongues, and calling only thee. 
Weaving blindly out thy holy, happy purpose, — 

Who wert and art and evermore shalt be. 

4 Life nor death can part us, O thou Love eternal. 
Shepherd of the wandering star, and souls that wayward flee ; 
Homeward draws our spirit to thy Spirit yearning, — 

Who wert and art and evermore shalt be.

^ Psalm One Hundred 

2 His steady counsels change the face 3 

Of the declining year ; 
His bids the sun cut short his race, 

And wintry days appear ; 
His hoary frost, his fleecy snow. 

Descend and clothe the ground ; 
The liquid streams forbear to flow, 

In icy fetters bound. 



and Forty-Seven ' 

He sends his word, and melts the snow. 

The fields no longer mourn ; 
He calls the warmer gales to blow, 

And bids the spring return. 
The changing wind, the flying cloud. 

Obey his mighty word : 
With songs and honors sounding loud. 

Praise ye the sovereign Lord.

The moon takes up the wondrous tale, 
And nightly to the listening earth 
Repeats the story of her birth ; 
Whilst all the stars that round her burn, 
And all the planets in their turn, 
Confirm the tidings as they roll. 
And spread the truth from pole to pole.

What though, in solemn silence, all 
Move round the dark terrestrial ball ? 
What though nor real voice nor sound 
Amidst their radiant orbs be found ? 
In reason's ear they all rejoice, 
And utter forth a glorious voice. 
For ever singing as they shine, 
' The hand that made us is divine.'

2 When day, with farewell beam, delays 

Among the opening clouds of even. 
And we can almost think we gaze 

Through golden vistas into heaven. 
Those hues that make the sun's decline 
So soft, so radiant. Lord, are thine. 

(3) When night with wings of starry gloom 
O'ershadows all the earth and skies. 
Like some dark beauteous bird whose plume 

Is sparkling with unnumbered eyes, — 
That sacred gloom, those fires divine, 
So grand, so countless. Lord, are thine. 

4 When youthful spring around us breathes. 
Thy Spirit warms her fragrant sigh ; 
And every flower the summer wreathes 

Is born beneath that kindling eye : 
Where'er we turn, thy glories shine. 
And all things fair and bright are thine.

Praise him ! praise him !

Well our feeble frame he knows ; 
In his hands he gentlv bears us, 
Rescues us from all our foes. 

Praise him ! praise him !

2 Nor shall fail from memory's treasure 3 Full of kindness and compassion, 
Works by love and mercy wrought, Slow to anger, vast in love, 

Works of love surpassing measure, God is good to all creation ; 

Works of mercy passing thought. All his works his goodness prove. 

4 All thy works, O Lord, shall bless thee, 
Thee shall all thy saints adore, 
King supreme shall they confess thee. 
And proclaim thy sovereign power.

^Praise for Creation and Providence^ 



I sing the almighty power of God, 
That made the mountains rise. 

That spread the flowing seas abroad. 
And built the lofty skies. 

I sing the wisdom that ordained 

The sun to rule the day ; 
The moon shines full at his command. 

And all the stars obey. 

I sing the goodness of the Lord, 
That filled the earth with food. 

And formed the creatures with his word. 
And then pronounced them good. 



4 Lord, how thy wonders are displayed 
Where'er I turn mine eye ; 
If I survey the ground I tread. 
Or gaze upon the sky ! 

(5) There's not a plant or flower below 
But makes thy glories known ; 
And clouds arise, and tempests blow, 
By order from thy throne. 

6 Creatures that borrow life from thee 
Are subject to thy care ; [flee. 
There's not a place where we can 
But God is present there.

Thy chastisements are love; more deep 
They stamp the seal divine, 

And by a sweet compulsion keep 
Our spirits nearer thine. 

Thy heaven is the abode of love ; 

O blessed Lord, that we 
May there, when time's deep shades 
remove. 
Be gathered home to thee !

Love Passing Knowledge 



There's a vvideness in God's mercy 

Like the wideness of the sea ; 
There's a kindness in his justice, 

Which is more than liberty ; 
There is welcome for the sinner, 

And more graces for the good ; 
There is mercy with the Saviour, 

There is healing in his blood : 



For the love of God is broader 

Than the measures of man's mind. 
And the heart of the Eternal 

Is most wonderfully kind. 
If our love were but more simple. 

We should take him at his word ; 
And our lives would be all sunshine 

In the sweetness of our Lord.

To win the victor's crown.

Come warm my heart, come fill my soul, 

Come lead me unto thee !

In that message from above, 
With ten thousand, thousand voices, 
TeUing back from hill and grove 

Her glad story, 
God is might and God is love.

Mingling in harmonious strife.

To the world with blessing rife 

Tell their story,

To the Life of life above,

The fire divine their steps that led 
Still goeth bright before us, 

The heavenly shield around them spread, 
Is still high holden o'er us ; 

The grace those sinners that subdued. 

The strength those weaklings that re- 
newed. 
Doth vanquish, doth restore us. 



Their joy unto their Lord we bring. 
Their song to us descendeth ; 

The Spirit who in them did sing 
To us his music lendeth : 

His song in them, in us, is one ; 

We raise it high, we send it on, 
The song that never endeth. 



Ye saints to come, take up the strain. 
The same sweet theme endeavor ; 

Unbroken be the golden chain, 
Keep on the song for ever ; 

Safe in the same dear dwelling-place. 

Rich with the same eternal grace. 
Bless the same boundless Giver.

Our years are like the shadows 

On sunny hills that lie.

By strangers quickly told, 
An unremaining glory 

Of things that soon are old.

His Tender Mercies^ Ever of Old 

7. O Holy Father, who hast led thy children 
In all the ages, with the fire and cloud, 
Through seas dry-shod, through weary wastes bewildering, 
To thee, in reverent love, our hearts are bowed. 

3 O Holy Jesus, Prince of Peace and Saviour, 

To thee we owe the peace that still prevails, 
Stilling the rude wills of men's wild behavior, 
And calming passion's fierce and stormy gales. 

4 O Holy Ghost, the lyord and the Life-giver, 

Thine is the quickening power that gives increase j 
From thee have flowed, as from a pleasant river. 
Our plenty, wealth, prosperity and peace. 

5 O Triune God, with heart and voice adoring. 

Praise we the goodness that doth crown our days ; 
Pray we that thou wilt hear us, still imploring 
Thy love and favor kept to us always.

Fulfil thy perfect thought : We see thee in the sun ; 

The ancient paths the fathers trod And praise thee that the years proclaim 

Are widening out to pathways broad. Thy justice and thy love the sam_e, 

Because thy hand hath wrought. And joy and duty one.

Yet feared beneath thy rod ; 
For clearer light, by which we see 
Thy judgments and thy grace agree, 

We bless thee, O our God. 



Most loving when most just ; 
To lead us on from year to year. 
In pastures wide by waters clear. 

Thy guiding hand we trust.

Sheds on our path the glow of day ; 
Star of our hope, thy softened light 
Cheers the long watches of the night 



Whose light is truth, whose warmth 

is love ; 
Before thy ever-blazing throne 
We ask no luster of our own. 



3 Our midnight is thy smile withdrawn ; 5 Grant us thy truth to make us free, 
Our noontide is thy gracious dawn; And kindling hearts that burn for thee. 

Our rainbow arch, thy mercy's sign : Till all thy living altars claim 
All, save the clouds of sin, are thine. One holy light, one heavenly flame. 

Oliver Wendell Holmes, 1848

1 God of the earth, the sky, the sea. 

Maker of all above, below. 
Creation lives and moves in thee. 
Thy present life through all doth 
flow. 

2 Thy love is in the sunshine's glow. 

Thy life is in the quickening air; 
When lightnings flash and storm- 
winds blow. 
There is thy power ; thy law is there. 



We feel thy calm at evening's hour, 
Thy grandeur in the march of night; 

And, when the morning breaks in 

power, [light ! ' 

We hear thy word, ' Let there be 

But higher far, and far more clear. 
Thee in man's spirit we behold : 
Thine image and thyself are there. 
The indwelling God, proclaimed of 
old.

* Visit Me with Thy Salvation ' 

2 Wilt thou not visit me ? 

The morning calls on me with cheering tone. 

And every hill and tree 
Has but one voice, the voice of thee alone. 

3 Come, for I need thy love 

More than the flower the dew, or grass the rain ; 

Come, like thy holy Dove, 
And, swift-descending, bid me live again. 

4 Yes, thou wilt visit me ; 

Nor plant nor tree thine eye delights so well, 

As when, from sin set free, 
Man's spirit comes with thine in peace to dwell. 

Jones Very, 1839 

(PARK STREET) L. M. 51. 

The Word within Thee 



1 I pray for faith, I long to trust ; 

I listen with my heart, and hear 
A voice without a sound, — ' Be just, 
Be true, be merciful, revere 
The Word withinthee: God is near.' 

2 O joy supreme ! I know the Voice, 

Like none beside on earth or sea ; 
Yea, more, O soul of mine, rejoice ! 
By all that he requires of me 
I know what God himself must be. 



3 No picture to my aid I call, 

I shape no image in my prayer ; 
I only know in him is all 

Of life, light, beauty, everywhere. 
Eternal Goodness here and there. 

4 I fear no more. The clouded face 

Of Nature smiles: through all her 
things 
Of time and space and sense I trace 
The moving of the Spirit's wings, 
And hear the song of hope she sings. 
John G. Whittier, 1891

'The Mystery of God' 

2 What heart can comprehend thy name, 3 Yet, though I know thee but in part, 
Or, searching, find thee out, I ask not, Lord, for more : 

Who art within, a quickening flame, Enough for me to know thou art, 
A presence round about ? To love thee and adore. 

4 And dearer than all things I know 
Is childlike faith to me, 
That makes the darkest way I go 
An open path to thee.

Or to Benediction, 664 



'■Whom hut Thee' 

2 Below all depths thy saving mercy lies, 
Through thickest glooms I see thy light arise; 
Above the highest heavens thou art not found 
More surely than within this earthly round. 

3 Take part with me against these doubts that rise 
And seek to throne thee far in distant skies ; 
Take part with me against this self that dares 
Assume the burden of these sins and cares. 

4 How shall I call thee who art always here ? 
How shall I praise thee who art still most dear ? 
What may I give thee, save what thou hast given ? 
And whom but thee have I in earth or heaven ?

Nor far removed where feet have seldom strayed ; 
Around us ever lies the enchanted land. 

In marvels rich to thine own sons displayed. 

2 In finding thee are all things round us found ; 

In losing thee are all things lost beside ; 
Ears have we, but in vain sweet voices sound, 
And to our eyes the vision is denied. 

3 Open our eyes that we that world may see. 

Open our ears that we thy voice may hear, 
And in the spirit-land may ever be. 

And feel thy presence with us always near.

And whatever I can be. 

Give to him who gave me thee.

And every virtue we possess, 

And every victory won, 
And every thought of holiness, 
Are his alone. 



3 And his that gentle voice we hear, 5 Spirit of purity and grace. 

Soft as the breath of even. Our weakness pitying see ; 

That checks each fault, that calms O make our hearts thy dwelling- 
each fear, place. 
And speaks of heaven. And worthier thee !

r/z^ Baptism of the Spirit 
(2) I ask no dream, no prophet-ecstasies, 

No sudden rending of the veil of clay. 
No angel-visitant, no opening skies ; 

But take the dimness of my soul away. 

3 Hast thou not bid us love thee, God and King, 

All, all thine own, soul, heart, and strength, and mind ? 
I see thy cross — there teach my heart to cling : 
O let me seek thee, and O let me find ! 

4 Teach me to feel that thou art always nigh ; 

Teach me the struggles of the soul to bear, 
To check the rising doubt, the rebel sigh ; 

Teach me the patience of unanswered prayer; 

5 Teach me to love thee as thine angels love. 

One holy passion filling all my frame, — 
The baptism of the heaven-descended Dove, 
My heart an altar, and thy love the flame.

2 Come, tenderest Friend and best, 
Our most delightful guest. 

With soothing power ; 
Rest which the weary know. 
Shade 'mid the noontide glow. 
Peace when deep griefs o'erflow. 

Cheer us this hour. 

3 Come, Light serene and still, 
Our inmost bosoms fill. 

Dwell in each breast ; 
We know no dawn but thine. 
Send forth thy beams divine 
On our dark souls to shine, 

And make us blest. 



Veni Sancte Spiritus 

4 Exalt our low desires ; 



Extinguish passion's fires ; 

Heal every wound : 
Our stubborn spirits bend, 
Our icy coldness end, 
Our devious steps attend, 

While heavenward bound. 

Come, all the faithful bless, 

Let all who Christ confess 

His praise employ ; 

Give virtue's rich reward ; 

Victorious death accord. 

And with our glorious Lord, 

Eternal joy.

On our dryness pour thy dew.

Bend the stubborn heart and will ; 
Melt the frozen, warm the chill ; 

Guide the steps that go astray.

Visit thou these hearts of thine. 

And our inmost being fill : 
If thou take thy grace away. 
Nothing pure in man will stay ; 

All his good is turned to ill.

Give them comfort when they die ; 

Give them life with thee on high ; 

Give them joys that never end.

2 Lift up your heads, rejoice, 

Redemption draweth nigh: 
Now mount the laden clouds. 

Now flames the darkening sky; 
The early scattered drops 

Descend with heavy fall, 
And to the waiting earth 

The hidden thunders call. 

3 Lift up your heads, rejoice. 

Redemption draweth nigh: 
O note the varying signs 
Of earth, and air, and sky! 



The God of glory comes 

In gentleness and might, 
To comfort and alarm. 

To succor and to smite. 

4 He comes, the wide world's King; 
He comes, the true heart's Friend, 
New gladness to begin. 

And ancient wrong to end; 
He comes, lo fill with light 
The weary, waiting eye: 
Lift up your heads, rejoice. 
Redemption draweth nigh.

( LAUDS ) L. M. ^Christmas 

I heard the bells on Christmas day 4 
Their old familiar carols play. 
And wild and sweet the words repeat 
Of peace on earth, good-will to men. 

I thought how, as the day had come. 
The belfries of all Christendom 
Had rolled along the unbroken song 
Of peace on earth, good-will to men. 

And in despair I bowed my head : 
' There is no peace on earth,' I said, 
' For hate is strong, and mocks the song 
Of peace on earth, good will to men.' 



Bells ' 

Then pealed the bells more loud and 
deep: 

' God is not dead, nor doth he sleep ; 

The wrong shall fail, the right pre- 
vail. 

With peace on earth, good-will to 
men ': 

Till, ringing, singing on its way. 
The world revolved from night to 

day, 
A voice, a chime, a chant sublime. 
Of peace on earth, good-will to men I

Thy years are sure, and glad, and

Within thy mighty world of peace 
The humblest flower hath leave to 
blow. 
And with thy guiding help we pierce 
Life's labyrinth now no longer vain ; 
The love that frees the universe 
Hath made its broken story plain.

None now shall bid it err or mourn. Is glad for thee, and all is well. 

And o'er its desert breaks the rose And fixed and sure, because thou art, 

In triumph o'er the grieving thorn. Whose name is called Emmanuel.

The D ay-Spring from on High 



2 And we are glad, and we will sing, 

As in the days of yore ; 
Come all, and hearts made ready bring, 

To welcome back once more 
The day when first on wintry earth 

A summer change began 
And, dawning in a lowly birth, 

Uprose the Light of man. 



3 For trouble, such as men must bear 
From childhood to fourscore. 
He shared with us, that we might share 

His joy forevermore ; 
And twice a thousand years of grief, 

Of conflict, and of sin. 
May tell how large the harvest sheaf 
His patient love shall win.

Or to Angels Song, 104 

Peace and 

2 Still through the cloven skies they 

come, 

With peaceful wings unfurled. 
And still their heavenly music floats 

O'er all the weary world ; 
Above its sad and lowly plains 

They bend on hovering wing, 
And ever o'er its Babel sounds 

The blessed angels sing. 

3 And ye, beneath life's crushing load 

Whose forms are bending low, 

Who toil along the climbing way. 

With painful steps and slow, — 



Good-Will 

Look now, for glad and golden hours 
Come swiftly on the wing : 

O, rest beside the weary road. 
And hear the angels sing ! 

4. For lo ! the days are hastening on 
By prophet bards foretold. 
When with the ever-circling years 

Comes round the age of gold. 
When Peace shall over all the earth 

Its ancient splendors fling. 
And the whole world give back the 
song 
Which now the angels sing.

2 For Christ is born of Mary, 

And gathered all above, 
While mortals sleep, the angels keep 

Their watch of wondering love. 
O morning stars, together 

Proclaim the holy birth. 
And praises sing to God the King, 

And peace to men on earth ! 

3 How silently, how silently. 

The wondrous gift is given ! 

So God imparts to human hearts 

The blessings of his heaven. 



Us To-day 
No ear may hear his coming. 

But in this world of sin, 
Where meek souls will receive him,still 

The dear Christ enters in. 

4 O holy Child of Bethlehem, 
Descend to us, we pray ; 
Cast out our sin and enter in ; 

Be born in us to-day ! 
We hear the Christmas angels. 

The great glad tidings tell ; 
O come to us, abide with us,

Tidings of Joy 

2 Low at the cradle throne we bend, 3 For us the world must lose its charms 
We wonder and adore ; Before the manger shrine, 

And feel no bliss can ours transcend, When, folded in thy mother's arms, 
No joy was sweet before. We see thee. Babe divine. 

4 Thou Light of uncreated Light, 
Shine on us. Holy Child ; 
That we may keep thy birthday bright. 
With service undefiled.

Watching o'er your flocks by night. Brighter visions beam afar; 

God with man is now residing, 
Yonder shines the infant Light: 

Come and worship. 
Worship Christ, the new-born King 



Seek the great Desire of nations. 
Ye have seen his natal star: 

Come and worship, 
Worship Christ, the new-born King. 



4 Saints before the altar bending, 

Watching long in hope and fear. 
Suddenly the Lord, descending. 
In his temple shall appear: 

Come and worship.

Reaching far as man is found; 
Souls redeemed, and sins forgiven; 

Loud our golden harps shall sound.

Glad receive whom God appointed 

For your Prophet, Priest, and King. 



Learn his name, and taste his joy; 
Till in heaven you sing before him.

Adore the Mystery of Love 

2 Then to the watchful shepherds it was told, 
Who heard the angelic herald's voice : *■ Behold, 
I bring good tidings of a Saviour's birth 

To you, and all the nations upon earth : 

This day hath God fulfilled his promised word ; 

This day is born a Saviour, Christ the Lord.' 

3 He spake : and straightway the celestial choir 
In hymns of joy, unknown before, conspire; 
The praises of redeeming love they sang. 
And heaven's whole orb with alleluias rang : 
God's highest glory was their anthem still. 
Peace upon earth, and mutual good will. 

4 O may we keep and ponder in our mind 
God's wondrous love in saving lost mankind ; 
Trace we the Babe, who has retrieved our loss, 
From his poor manger to his bitter cross ; 
Treading his steps, assisted by his grace, 

Till man's first heavenly state again takes place. 



113 



Advent and Nativity 

5 Then may we hope, the angelic thrones among, 
To sing, redeemed, a glad triumphal song; 
He that was born upon this joyful day, 
Around us all his glory shall display ; 
Saved by his love, incessant we shall sing 
Eternal praise to heaven's almighty King.

The Babe in the Manger 
2 He came down to earth from heaven, 4 And our eyes at last shall see him, 



Who is God and Lord of all, 
And his shelter was a stable, 

And his cradle was a stall: 
With the poor, and mean, and lowly. 
Lived on earth our Saviour holy. 



Through his own redeeming love. 
For that child so dear and gentle 

Is our Lord in heaven above: 
And he leads his children on 
To the place where he is gone. 



3 He became our childhood's pattern, 5 Not in that poor lowly stable. 



Day by day like us he grew. 
He was little, weak and helpless. 

Tears and smiles like us he knew: 
And he feeleth for our sadness, 
And he shareth in our gladness. 



With the oxen standing by. 
We shall see him; but in heaven, 

Set at God's right hand on high; 
When like stars his children rise 
Singing praises in the skies.

We Have Seen His Star, and are Come to Worship 

2 Say, shall we yield him, in costly devotion, 

Odors of Edom and offerings divine. 
Gems of the mountain and pearls of the ocean, 
Myrrh from the forest, or gold from the mine ? 

3 Vainly we offer each ample oblation, 

Vainly with gifts would his favor secure ; 
Richer by far is the heart's adoration. 

Dearer to God are the prayers of the poor. 

4 Brightest and best of the sons of the morning. 

Dawn on our darkness and lend us thine aid ; 

Star of the east, the horizon adorning, 

Guide where our infant Redeemer is laid.

O'er all kingdoms reign, 
Gather in the people. 

Who in lands afar 
Ne'er have seen the brightness

All who've gone astray ; 
Throw thy radiance o'er them. 

Guide them on their way ; 
Those who never knew thee. 

Those who've wandered far. 
Guide them by the brightness 

Of thy guiding star.

2 As with joyful steps they sped 
To that lowly manger-bed. 
There to bend the knee before 
Him whom heaven and earth adore; 
So may we with willing feet 

Ever seek thy mercy-seat. 

3 As they offered gifts most rare, 
At that manger rude and bare. 
So may we with holy joy, 



Pure and free from sin's alloy. 
All our costliest treasures bring, 
Christ, to thee, our heavenly King. 

Holy Jesus, every day 
Keep us in the narrow way; 
And, when earthly things are past. 
Bring our ransomed souls at last 
Where they need no star to guide, 
Where no clouds thy glory hide.

2 When manhood's brows are bent in 4 When shadows of the valley fall,

To learn what men of old have taught, One light we through the darkness 
When eager hands seek wisdom's key, see — 

Wise Temple Child, we learn of thee ! Christ on the Cross, we cry to thee ! 

5 And when the world shall pass away, 

3 When doubts assail, and perils fright, And dawns at length the perfect day. 
When, groping blindly in the night. In glory shall our souls made free. 

Thou God enthroned, then worship

2 Such was thy truth, and such thy zeal, 3 Cold mountains and the midnight air 

Such deference to thy Father's will, Witnessed the fervor of thy prayer ; 

Such love and meekness so divine, — The desert thy temptations knew, 

I would transcribe and make them mine. Thy conflict and thy victory too.

More of thy gracious image here : 

Then God the Judge shall own my name 

Amongst the followers of the Lamb.

On whose low cry the ages wait. 

Lead us thy way, and every day 
Guide us to see what made thee great. 

2 O Jesus, youth of Nazareth, 
Preparing for the bitter strife. 

Wilt thou impart to every heart 
Thy perfect purity of life ? 

3 O Christ whose words make dear the 

fields 
And hillsides green of Galilee, 



Grant us to find, with reverent mind. 
The truth thou saidst should make us 
free. 

4 O suffering Lord on Calvary, 
Whom love led on to mortal pain, 

We know thy cross is not a loss 
If we thy love shall truly gain. 

5 O Master of abundant life 

From natal morn to victory's hour. 
We look to thee, heed thou our plea. 

Teach us to share thy ageless power.

T>^(? Sweet Story of Old 
I wish that his hands had been placed on my head, 

That his arm had been thrown around me, 
And that I might have seen his kind look when he said, 

' Let the little ones come unto me.' 
Yet still to his footstool in prayer I may go. 

And ask for a share in his love ; 
And if I now earnestly seek him below, 

I shall see him and hear him above. 
In that beautiful place he is gone to prepare 

For all who are washed and forgiven ; 
And many dear children are gathering there. 

For of such is the kingdom of heaven. 
But thousands and thousands who wander and fall 

Never heard of that heavenly home ; 
I should like them to know there is room for them all. 

And that Jesus has bid them to come. 
I long for the joy of that glorious time. 

The sweetest and brightest and best. 
When the dear little children of every clime 

Shall crowd to his arms and be blest.

2 Meek and lowly were his ways ; 
From his loving grew his praise, 

From his giving, prayer ; 
All the outcasts thronged to hear, 
All the sorrowful drew near 
To enjoy his care. 



4 Fill us, Lord, with thy desire, 
All the sinful to inspire 

With the Father's life ; 
Free us from the cares that press 
On the heart of worldliness. 

From the fret and strife. 



3 When he walked the fields, he drew 5 Lord, be ours thy power to keep 

From the flowers and birds and dew. In the very heart of grief. 

Parables of God ; And in trial, love ;

Room in My Heart for Thee 



2 Heaven's arches rang, 
When the angels sang 

Proclaiming thy royal degree; 
But of lowly birth 
Didst thou come to earth, 
And in great humility: 
O come to my heart. Lord Jesus, 
There is room in my heart for thee. 

3 The foxes found rest, 
And the birds their nest 

In the shade of the forest tree; 
But thy couch was the sod, 
O thou Son of God, 
In the deserts of Galilee: 
O come to my heart, Lord Jesus, 
There is room in my heart for thee. 



4 Thou camest, O Lord, 
With the living word 

That should set thy people free; 
But with mocking scorn. 
And with crown of thorn. 
They bore thee to Calvary: 
O come to my heart. Lord Jesus, 
Thy cross is my only plea. 

5 When heaven's choirs shall sing, 
And her arches ring. 

At thy coming to victory. 
Let thy voice call me home. 
Saying, ^Yet there is room. 
There is room at my side for thee ; ' 
And my heart shall rejoice. Lord Jesus, 
When thou comest and call'st for me.

He Laid Down His Life for Us 



2 In life, no house, no home 

My Lord on earth might have ; 
In death no friendly tomb. 
But what a stranger gave. 
What may I say ? 

Heaven was his home ; 
But mine the tomb 
Wherein he lay. 

3 Sometimes they strew his way. 

And his sweet praises sing. 
Resounding all the day 

* Hosannas ' to their King: 
Then, ' Crucify ' 
Is all their breath; 
And for his death 
They thirst and cry. 



4 Why, what hath my Lord done, 

What makes this rage and spite .? 
He made the lame to run. 

He gave the blind their sight. 
Sweet injuries ! 
Yet they at these 
Themselves displease, 
And 'gainst him rise. 

5 Here might I stay and sing ! 

No story so divine ; 
Never was love, dear King, 
Never was grief like thine ! 
This is my Friend, 

In whose sweet praise 
I all my days 
Could gladly spend.

2 Ah ! thou who sorrowest unto death, (4) Great Chief of faithful souls, arise; 

We conquer in thy mortal fray; None else can lead the martyr-band. 

And earth for all her children saith. Who teach the brave how peril flies, 

' O God, take not this cup away ' ! When faith, unarmed, uplifts the 

hand. 

3 O Lord of sorrow, meekly die ; (5) O King of earth, the cross ascend ; 

Thou'lt heal or hallow all our woe ; O'erclimesand ages 'tis thy throne ; 

Thy name refresh the mourner's sigh, Where'er thy fading eye may bend, 
Thy peace revive the faint and low. The desert blooms and is thine own. 

6 Thy parting blessing. Lord, we pray : 
Make but one fold below, above ; 
And when we go the last lone way, 
O give the welcome of thy love.

1 Shall we grow weary in our watch 3 O Thou, who in the garden's shade 
And murmur at the long delay. Didst wake thy weary ones again. 
Impatient of our Father's time. Who slumbered at that fearful hour, 

And his appointed way .'' Forgetful of thy pain, — 

2 When harassed sore with passion's cry, 4 Bend o'er us now, as over them. 
Or overcome with sorrow's sleep. And set our sleep-bound spirits free. 
We find it hard within our hearts Nor leave us slumbering in the watch 

The watch of life to keep. Our souls should keep with thee.

When for warmer faith I seek. 
Then in thought I go to thee.

While the lingering twilight fades. 
Meet my Saviour, friendless, lone, 
See him weep, and hear him groan. 

3 There I watch the agony. 
That he underwent for me ; 
And with pitving love confess, 
Ne'er was sorrow like to his.

Thou the blood of life hast shed. 
Thou hast filled a mortal bier ;

4 When my love for Christ grows weak. 
When for stronger faith I seek. 

Hill of Calvary, I go 

To thy scenes of fear and woe. 

5 There with trembling awe I see 
Jesus tortured on the tree. 
Hear the scoffers' savage cries. 
While for them, for me, he dies. 

6 Yes, for me he toiled and bled. 
Bowed in death his gracious head ; 
And to him my soul shall give 
Love and reverence while I live.

4 If joy shall at thy bidding fly. 

And grief's dark day come on. 
We, in our turn, would meekly cry, 
'Father, thy will be done.' 

2 Help us, through good report and ill, 5 Should friends misjudge, or foes defame, 

Our daily cross to bear; Or brethren faithless prove. 

Like thee, to do our Father's will. Then, like thine own, be all our aim 

Our brethren's griefs to share. To conquer them by love. 

3 Let grace our selfishness expel, 6 Kept peaceful in the midst of strife. 



Lord, as to thy dear cross we flee. 
And plead to be forgiven. 

So let thy life our pattern be. 
And form our souls for heaven. 



Our earthliness refine ; 
And kindness in our bosoms dwell, 
As free and true as thine. 



Forgiving and forgiven, 
O may we lead the pilgrim's life. 
And follow thee to heaven.

* Crucifixion to the World by the Cross of Christ ' 

2 Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast, 3 See, from his head, his hands, his feet, 
Save in the cross of Christ, my God; Sorrow and love flow mingled down! 

All the vain things that charm me most Did e'er such love and sorrow meet, 
I sacrifice them to his blood. Or thorns compose so rich a crown? 

4 Were the whole realm of nature mine. 

That were a present far too small ; 
Love so amazing, so divine. 

Demands my soul, my life, my all. 

Isaac Watts, 1707 

141 (RATHBUN) 8.7 

In the Cross of Christ I Glory 

1 In the cross of Christ I glory, 3 When the sun of bliss is beaming 

Towering o'er the wrecks of time ; Light and love upon my way, 

All the light of sacred story From the cross the radiance streaming 

Gathers round its head sublime. Adds more luster to the day. 

2 When the woes of life o'ertake me, 4 Bane and blessing, pain and pleasure, 

Hopes deceive, and fears annoy. By the cross are sanctified; 

Never shall the cross forsake me ; Peace is there that knows no measure, 

Lo ! it glows with peace and joy. Joys that through all time abide. 

5 In the cross of Christ I glory. 

Towering o'er the wrecks of time ; 
All the light of sacred story 

Gathers round its head sublime.

(2) Thine own disciple to the Jews has sold thee ; 

With friendship's kiss and loyal word he came : 
How oft of faithful love my lips have told thee, 

While thou hast seen my falsehood and my shame ! 

3 With taunts and scoffs they mock what seems thy weakness, 

With blows and outrage adding pain to pain : 
Thou art unmoved and steadfast in thy meekness ; 
When I am wronged how quickly I complain !

Upon thy bleeding brow the crown of thorn. 
Shall I for pleasure live, or shrink from bearing

For my abiding place;

The sunshine of his face, —

And my unworthiness.

* Christ Our Example in Suffering ' 

2 See him at the judgment-hall, 3 Calvary's mournful mountain climb; 

Beaten, bound, reviled, arraigned ; There adoring at his feet, 



See him meekly bearing all ; 

Love to man his soul sustained : 
Shun not suffering, shame or loss ; 
Learn of Christ to bear the cross.

Mark that miracle of time, 

God's own sacrifice complete j 

' It is finished ! ' hear him cry ; 

Learn of Jesus Christ to die. 

James Montgomery, 1820 



7s. 61. 



* Good Friday ' 
Throned upon the awful tree, 3 Hark that cry that peals aloud 



King of grief, I watch with thee : 
Darkness veils thine anguished face, 
None its lines of woe can trace. 
None can tell what pangs unknown 
Hold thee silent and alone. 



Upward through the whelming cloud ! 
Thou, the Father's only Son, 
Thou, his own Anointed One, 
Thou dost ask him — can it be .? 
' Why hast thou forsaken me .? ' 



Silent through those three dread hours, 4 Lord, should fear and anguish roll 

Wrestling with the evil powers. Darkly o'er my sinful soul. 

Left alone with human sin. Thou, who once wast thus bereft. 

Gloom around thee and within. That thine own might ne'er be left, 

Till the appointed time is nigh, Teach me, by that bitter cry, 

Till the Lamb of God may die. In the gloom to know thee nigh. 

John Ellerton, 1875

2 Not the labors of my hands 
Can fulfil thy law's demands : 
Could my zeal no respite know, 
Could my tears forever flow, 
All for sin could not atone ; 
Thou must save, and thou alone. 



3 Nothing in my hand I bring. 
Simply to thy cross I cling; 
Naked, come to thee for dress. 
Helpless, look to thee for grace, 
Foul, I to the fountain fly ; 
Wash me, Saviour, or I die. 



4 While I draw this fleeting breath. 
When my eyelids close in death. 
When I soar to worlds unknown. 
See thee on thy judgment throne, — 
Rock of Ages, cleft for me. 
Let me hide myself in thee.

Salve, Caput 

2 What thou, my Lord, hast suffered 

Was all for sinners' gain : 
Mine, mine was the transgression. 

But thine the deadly pain. 
Lo, here I fall, my Saviour ! 

'Tis I deserve thy place ; 
Look on me with thy favor. 

Vouchsafe to me thy grace. 



Cruentatum 

3 What language shall I borrow 

To thank thee, dearest Friend, 
For this thy dying sorrow. 

Thy pity without end ? 
O, make me thine forever ! 

And, should I fainting be. 
Lord, let me never, never, 

Outlive my love to thee ! 



Passion and Death 



(4) And when I am departing, 

O part not thou from mc ! 
When mortal pangs are darting, 

Come, Lord, and set me free : 
And when my heart must languish 

Amidst the final throe, 
Release me from mine anguish 
By thine own pain and woe. 



(5) Be near me when I'm dying, 
O, show thy cross to me ! 
And for my succor flying, 

Come, Lord, and set me free: 
These eyes new faith receiving. 
From Jesus shall not move ; 
For he who dies believing. 
Dies safely through thy love.

' Hymn for Easier ' 



2 Lives again our glorious King : 
Where, O death, is now thy sting ? 
Dying once, he all doth save : 
Where thy victory, O grave ? 

3 Love's redeeming vi^ork Is done, 
Fought the fight, the battle won ; 
Death In vain forbids him rise ; 
Christ has opened Paradise. 



Soar we now, where Christ has led. 
Following our exalted Head ; 
Made like him, like him we rise. 
Ours the cross, the grave, the skies. 

Hail the Lord of earth and heaven ! 
Praise to thee by both be given : 
Thee we greet triumphant now : 
Hail, the Resurrection thou !

PALESTRINA 

Victory over Pain and Death 

1 Past arethecross,thescourge,the thorn, 3 And so in sorrow dark and drear, 
The scoffing tongue, the jibe, the scorn. Though black the night, the morn is near; 
And brightly breaks the Easter morn. Soon shall the heavenly day appear. 

4 And when death's darkness dims our 

2 Gone are the gloomy clouds of night ; eyes. 

The shades of death are put to flight. From out the gloom our souls shall rise 
And from the tomb beams heavenly light. In deathless glory to the skies. 

5 Then let us raise the glorious strain. 

Love's triumph over sin and pain. 

Faith's victory over terror's reign. Alleluia !

'Tis the spring of souls to-day : 

Christ hath burst his prison, 
And from three days sleep in death 

As a sun hath risen ; 
All the winter of our sins, 

Long and dark, is flying 
From his light, to whom we give 

Laud and praise undying. 



Now the queen of seasons, bright 

With the day of splendor. 
With the royal feast of feasts. 

Comes its joy to render ; 
Comes to glad Jerusalem, 

Who with true affection 
Welcomes in unwearied strains 

Jesus' resurrection. 



4 Neither might the gates of death, 

Nor the tomb's dark portal. 
Nor the watchers, nor the seal, 

Hold thee as a mortal : 
But to-day amidst the Twelve 

Thou didst stand, bestowing 
That thy peace, which evermore 

Passeth human knowing.

That we may see aright 
The Lord in rays eternal 

Of resurrection-light, 
And, listening to his accents, 

May hear, so calm and plain. 
His own ' All hail ! ' and, hearing, 

May raise the victor-strain. 



3 Now let the heavens be joyful. 
Let earth her song begin. 
Let the round world keep triumph 

And all that is therein. 
Invisible and visible,

For Christ the Lord hath risen. 
Our Joy that hath no end.

And hope, and joy, and peace begin.

2 Crown him the Lord of love ! 

Behold his hands and side, 
Rich wounds, yet visible above, 

In beauty glorified. 

No angel in the sky 

Can fully bear that sight, 
But downward bends his burning eye 

At mysteries so bright. 



3 Crown him the Lord of peace. 

Whose power a scepter sways 
From pole to pole, that wars may cease. 

And all be prayer and praise ! 

His reign shall know no end, 

And round his pierced feet 
Fair flowers of Paradise extend 

Their fragrance ever sweet.

Go tell it to his friend, Are whelmed beneath the sea, 

That soon in every place shall dawn And every heart, now light and brave. 
His kingdom without end. May face the things to be.

Seems earth a fatherland ; 
A new and endless life they take 
With rapture from his hand.

Their joy the joy of heaven. 



The King of kings, and Lord of lords, 
And heaven's eternal Light, 
3 The joy of all who dwell above, 
The joy of all below 

To whom he manifests his love. 
And grants his name to know. 



They suffer with their Lord below, 
They reign with him above, — 

Their profit and their joy to know 
The mystery of his love. 

The cross he bore is life and health. 
Though shame and death to him, — 

His people's hope, his people's wealth. 
Their everlasting theme.

Worthy is the Lamb 

(2) Deep in the prophets' sacred page, 3 That life of truth, those deeds of love, 

Grand in the poets' winged word, That death of pain, 'mid hate and 

Slowly in type, from age to age, These all are past, and now above, [scorn; 

Nations beheld their coming Lord; He reigns our King! once crowned 
Till through the deep Judean night with thorn. 

Rang out the song, 'Good will to 'Lift up your heads, ye heavenly gates;* 
men!' So sang his hosts, unheard by men; 

Hymned by the firstborn sons of light, 'Lift up your heads, for you he waits.' 
Re-echoed now, ' Good will ! ' Amen f ' We lift them up, Amen, Amen ' ' 



The Living Christ 



4 Nations afar in ignorance deep ; 

Isles of the sea, where darkness lay; 

These hear his voice, they wake from 

sleep, [way. 

And throng with joy the upward 
They crv with us, 'Send forth thy light, 

O Lamb, once slain for sinful men; 
Burst Satan's bonds, O God of might; 

Set all men free !' Amen, Amen !

Sing to his name, his love forth tell ; 
Singon, heaven's hosts, his grace prolong;

Worthy the Lamb for sinners slain; 

From angels, praise, and thanks 
from men ; 
Worthy the Lamb, enthroned to reign, 

Glory and power ! Amen, Amen !

Rich the trophies Jesus brings ; 
In the seat of power enthrone him, 
While the vault of heaven rings. 

Crown him ! crown him, 
Crown the Saviour, King of kings ! 

3 Sinners in derision crowned him, 

Mocking thus the Saviour's claim ; 
Saints and angels crowd around him. 



Crown him ! crown him ! 
Spread abroad the Victor's fame.

Hark, those loud triumphant chords!

Who from his altar call ; The wormwood and the gall. 

Extol the stem of Jesse's rod, Go, spread your trophies at his feet. 

And crown him Lord of all. And crown him Lord of all. 

(3) Ye seed of Israel's chosen race, 5 Let every kindred, every tribe, 

Ye ransomed of the fall ; On this terrestrial ball. 

Hail him, who saves you by his grace. To him all majesty ascribe. 

And crown him Lord of all. And crown him Lord of all.

We'll join the everlasting song, 
And crown him Lord of all.

When our hearts are bowed with care ; 
Jesus comes again in answer 

To an earnest, heartfelt prayer; 

Alleluia ! Alleluia ! 
Comes to save us from despair. 

3 Jesus comes to hearts rejoicing, 

Bringing news of sins forgiven; 
Jesus comes in sounds of gladness, 
Leading souls redeemed to heaven; 

Alleluia ! Alleluia ! 
Now the gate of death is riven.

Shares alike our hopes and fears; 
Jesus comes, whate'er befalls us. 
Glads our hearts, and dries our tears; 

Alleluia! Alleluia! 
Cheering e'en our failing years.

When the heavens shall pass away; 
Jesus comes again in glory, — 
Let us then our homage pay, 

Alleluia ! ever singing.

The JVay^ the Truth and the Life 
Thee would I sing : thy truth is still the light 

Which guides the nations, groping on their way, 
Stumbling and falling in disastrous night, 

Yet hoping ever for the perfect day. 
Yes : thou art still the life ; thou art the way 

The holiest know, — light, life, and way of heaven ; 

And they who dearest hope and deepest pray, 

Toil by the truth, life, way, that thou hast given.

2 Thou hast arisen, but thou declinest never ; 

To-day shines as the past : 
All that thou wast, thou art, and shalt be ever. 
Brightness from first to last ! 

3 Night visits not thy sky, nor storm, nor sadness ; 

Day fills up all its blue, — 
Unfailing beauty, and unfaltering gladness. 
And love for ever new ! 

4 Light of the world, undimming and unsetting, 

O shine each mist away ! 
Banish the fear, the falsehood, and the fretting ; 
Be our unchanging day !

Is by our beds of pain ; 
Wetouchhim in life's throngand press. 
And we are whole again. 

5 Thro' him thefirst fond prayers are said 

Our lips of childhood frame. 

The last low whispers of our dead 

Are burdened with his name. 



6 O Lord and Master of us all, 
Whate'er our name or sign. 
We own thy sway, we hear thy call. 
We test our lives by thine. 

John G. Whittier, i866

(ST. PETER) CM. 

The Fatherhood of God Revealed 
I O Love ! O Life ! our faith and sight 3 We faintly hear, we dimly see, 



Thy presence makcth one. 
As thro' transfigued clouds of white, 
We trace the noonday sun, — 

2 So, to our mortal eyes subdued. 
Flesh-veiled but not concealed. 
We know in thee the fatherhood 
And heart of God revealed. 



In differing phrase we pray ; 
But, dim or clear, we own in thee 
The light, the truth, the way. 

4 OurFriend, ourBrother,and our Lord, 
What may thy service be ? 
Nor name, nor form, nor ritual wtjrd. 
But simply following thee.

2 'Come unto me, ye wanderers, 

And I will give you light.' 
O loving voice of Jesus 

Which comes to cheer the night! 
Our hearts were filled with sadness. 

And we had lost our way; 
But morning brings us gladness, 

And songs, the break of day. 

3 'Come unto me, ye fainting. 

And I will give you life.' 
O cheering voice of Jesus 

Which comes to aid our strife ! 



unto Me ' 

The foe is stern and eager, 
The fight is fierce and long; 

But thou hast made us mighty, 
And stronger than the strong. 

4 'And whosoever cometh, 
I will not cast him out.' 
O patient love of Jesus, 

Which drives away our doubt; 
Which calls us, very sinners. 

Unworthy though we be 
Of love so free and boundless. 
To come, dear Lord, to thee!

2 I heard the voice of Jesus say, 

* Behold, I freely give 
The living water! thirsty one, 

Stoop down and drink, and live. 
I came to Jesus, and I drank 

Of that life-giving stream; 



3 I heard the voice of Jesus say, 
'I am this dark world's light; 

Look unto me, thy morn shall rise. 
And all thy day be bright.' 

I looked to Jesus, and I found 
In him my star, my sun; 



My thirst was quenched, my soul revived, And in that light of life I'll walk, 
And now I live in him. Till traveling days are done.

Find in him exhaustless fuhiess 
For each want. 



4 Who has ever found him faithless .'' 
Who has found him weak ? 
Multitudes his grateful praises 
Joyful speak. 

3 Was there ever one that sought him 5 Aged men and gentle maidens, 
Yet, to be denied ? Young men, children sweet, 

Hope has in his gracious presence Lay their crowns of adoration 



Never died. 



At his feet.

1 Art thou weary, art thou languid, 

Art thou sore distrest ? 
*■ Cometo me', saithOne, 'and, coming. 
Be at rest.' 

2 Hath he marks to lead me to him. 

If he be my Guide .'' 
In his feet and hands are wound-prints. 
And his side. 

3 Is there diadem, as monarch. 

That his brow adorns ? 
Yea, a crown in very surety, 
But of thorns. 



4 If I find him, if I follow, 

What his guerdon here ? 
Many a sorrow, many a labor, 
Many a tear. 

5 If I still hold closely to him, 

What hath he at last ? 
Sorrow vanquished, labor ended, 
Jordan passed. 

6 If I ask him to receive me, 

Will he say me nay ? 
Not till earth and not till heaven 
Pass away. 



7 Finding, following, keeping, struggling. 
Is he sure to bless ? 
Saints, apostles, prophets, martyrs, 
Answer, Yes.

2 When the world's sharp strife is

When they hear the battle-cry, 
When they rush into the fight, 
Knowing not temptation's might. 

These thy children. Lord, defend; 

To their zeal thy wisdom lend. 

3 When their hearts are lifted high 
With success or victory, 

When they feel the conqueror's pride, 
Lest they grow self-satisfied. 

These thy children, Lord, defend; 

Teach their souls to thee to bend. 



On Confession of Faith

When the vows that they have made, 
When the prayers that they have 

played, 
Shall be fading from their hearts, 
When their first warm faith departs. 

These thy children, Lord, defend; 

Keep them faithful to the end. 

Through life's conflict guard us all. 
Or if wounded some should fall 
Ere the victory be won, 
For the sake of Christ, thy Son, 

These thy children, Lord, defend; 

And in death thy comfort lend.

ST. HILDA 7. 6. D. ' Penitential Hymn 



1 We stand in deep repentance. 

Before thy throne of love ; 
O God of grace, forgive us. 

The stain of guilt remove ; 
Behold us while with weeping 

We lift our eyes to thee ; 
And all our sins subduing. 

Our Father, set us free. 

2 O shouldst thou, from us fallen. 

Withhold thy grace to guide. 
Forever we should wander 
From thee and peace, aside j 



But thou to spirits contrite 
Dost light and life impart, 

That man may learn to serve thee 
With thankful, joyous heart. 

Our souls, — on thee we cast them, 

Our only refuge thou ! 
Thy cheering words revive us. 

When pressed with grief we bow ; 
Thou bearest the trusting spirit 

Upon thy loving breast. 
And givest all thy ransomed 

A sweet, unending rest.

We would be cleansed, for this we cry to thee; 
Thy word of love can make the conscience free.

2 O, we would bless thee for thy ceaseless care, 
And all thy works from day to day declare : 

Is not our life with hourly mercies crowned ? 
Does not thine arm encircle us around ? 

3 Alas, unworthy of thy boundless love. 

Too oft with careless feet from thee we rove ! 
But now, encouraged by thy voice, we come, 
Returning wanderers to a Father's home. 

4 O, by that name in whom all fulness dwells, 
O, by that love which every love excels, 

O, by that blood so freely shed for sin. 
Open blest mercy's gate, and take us in !

2 Lord, on thee our souls depend ; 
In compassion now descend, 

Fill our hearts with thy rich grace, 
Tune our lips to sing thy praise. 

3 Send some message from thy word 
That may joy and peace afford ; 
Let thy spirit now impart 

Full salvation to each heart. 



4 Comfort those who weep and mourn, 
Let th^ time of joy return ; 

Those that are cast down lift up 
Strong in faith, in love and hope. 

5 Grant that those who seek may find 

Thee a God sincere and kind ; 

Heal the sick, the captive free. 

Let us all rejoice in Thee.

' Lovest Thou Me* 



1 Hark, my soul, it is the Lord ! 
'Tis thy Saviour, hear his word ; 
Jesus speaks and speaks to thee, 

' Say, poor sinner, lovest thou me ? 

2 ' I delivered thee when bound. 
And when bleeding healed thy wound; 
Sought thee wandering, set thee right, 
Turned thy darkness into light. 

(3) ' Can a woman's tender care 

Cease towards the child she bare ? 
Yes, she may forgetful be. 
Yet will I remember thee. 



4 ' Mine is an unchanging love. 
Higher than the heights above ; 
Deeper than the depths beneath. 
Free and faithful, strong as death. 

5 ' Thou shalt see my glory soon, 
When the work of grace is done ; 
Partner of my throne shalt be : 
Say, poor sinner, lovest thou me ? ' 

6 Lord, it is my chief complaint. 
That my love is weak and faint ; 
Yet I love thee and adore ; 

O for grace to love thee more !

Prayer 



2 Prayer is the burden of a sigh, 
The falling of a tear, 
The upward glancing of an eye 
When none but God is near. 

(3) Prayer is the simplest form of speech 

That infant lips can try ; 
Prayer the sublimest strains that reach 
The Majesty on high. 

(4) Prayer is the contrite sinner's voice 

Returning from his ways. 



While angels in their songs rejoice, 
And cry, ' Behold, he prays.' 

5 Prayer is the Christian's vital breath. 

The Christian's native air. 
His watchword at the gates of death ; 
He enters heaven with prayer. 

6 O thou, by whom we come to God, 

The Life, the Truth, the Way, 
The path of prayer thyself hast trod ; 
Lord, teach us how to pray. 

James Montgomery, 1819 



218 BEATITUDO C. M. 

'Make Me a Clean Hearty O God^ 

1 O for a heart to praise my God, 3 A humble, lowly, contrite heart, 

A heart from sin set free ; Believing, true, and clean, 

A heart that always feels thy blood. Which neither life nor death can part 

So freely spilt for me ; From Him that dwells within ; 

2 A heart resigned, submissive, meek, 4 A heart in every thought renewed. 

My great Redeemer's throne. And full of love divine ; 

Where only Christ is heard to speak. Perfect, and right, and pure, and good, 
Where Jesus reigns alone ; A copy. Lord, of thine ! 

5 Thy nature, gracious Lord, impart ; 
Come quickly from above ; 
Write thy new name upon my heart. 
Thy new, best name of Love.

I In life's earnest morning. 

When our hope was high, 
Came thy voice in summons 

Not to be put by: 
Nor in toil nor sorrow. 

Weakness nor dismay, 
Need we ever falter, — 

Art not thou our stay? 



2 Teach us. Lord, thy wisdom, 

While we seek men's lore; 
May the mind be humbled 

As we know thee more; 
Let the larger vision 

Bring the childlike heart, 
And our deeper knowledge 

Holier zeal impart.

1 For me to live is Christ, 
To die is endless gain ; 

For him I gladly bear the cross, 
And welcome grief and pain. 

2 A pilgrimage my lot. 
My home is in the skies ; 

I nightly pitch my tent below, 
And daily higher rise. 

3 I fare with Christ my Lord, 
His path the path I choose ; 

They joy who suffer most with him. 
They win who with him lose. 



4 The dawn on distant hills 
Shines o'er the vales below ; 

The shadows of this world are lost 
In light to which I go. 

5 My journey soon will end. 
My scrip and stafF laid down j 

O, tempt me not with earthly toys ! 
I go to wear a crown. 

6 Faithful may I endure. 
And hear my Saviour say. 

Thrice welcome home, beloved child. 
Inherit endless day !

More Love to 
Once earthly joy I craved, 

Sought peace and rest ; 
Now thee alone I seek, 

Gi\e what is best : 
This all my prayer shall be, 
More love, O Christ, to thee, 

More love to thee ! 

Let sorrow do its work, 

Send grief and pain ; 
Sweet are thy messengers. 

Sweet their refrain,

( Concluded) * Something for 

Give me a faithful heart, 4 

Likeness to thee, 
That each departing day 

Henceforth may see 
Some work of love begun. 
Some deed of kindness done. 
Some wanderer sought and won, 

Something for thee. 



Christ 

When they can sing with me 
More love, O Christ, to thee, 
More love to thee ! 

Then shall my latest breath 

Whisper thy praise ; 
This be the parting cry 

My heart shall raise. 
This still its prayer shall be. 
More love, O Christ, to thee, 

More love to thee ! 

Elizabeth P. Prentiss, 1869 

Jesus ' 

AH that I am and have, 

Thy gifts so free. 
Ever in joy or grief. 

My Lord, for thee ; 
And when thy face I see. 
My ransomed soul shall be. 
Through all eternity. 

Something for thee.

Take what thou wilt, I'll ne'er repine; 
E'en as the branches to the vine, 

My soul would cling to thee.

And earthly friends and joys remove, 
With patient, uncomplaining love 

Still would I cling to thee.

What can disturb me, who appal. 
While, as my strength, my rock, my all.

'Twas not so much that I on thee took hold, 

As thou, dear Lord, on me.

2 With a childlike heart of love, 
At thy bidding may I move ; 
Prompt to serve and follow thee, 
Loving him who first loved me.

Strong to follow in thy grace,

2 We have no tears thou wilt not dry; 

We have no wounds thou wilt not heal; 
No sorrows pierce our human hearts. 
That thou, dear Saviour,dostnot feel. 

3 Thy pity like the dew distils. 

And thy compassion, like the light. 



Our every morning overfills. 

And crowns with stars our every night. 

4 Let not the world's rude conflict drown 
The charmed music of thy voice. 
That calls all weary souls to rest. 
And bids all mourning souls rejoice.

The Perfect Sympathy 

2 Thou who hast trod the thorny road 3 There is no secret sigh we breathe 

Wilt share each small distress ; But meets thine ear divine ; 

The love which bore the greater load And every cross grows light beneath 

Will not refuse the less. The shadow, Lord, of thine. 

4 Life's ill without, sin's strife within, — 
The heart would overflow. 
But for that love which died for sin. 
That love which wept with woe.

Hangs my helpless soul on thee ; 
Leave, ah, leave me not alone ! 

Still support and comfort me: 
All my trust on thee is stayed. 

All my help from thee I bring ; 
Cover my defenceless head 

With the shadow of thy wing.

Plenteous grace with thee is found, 

Grace to cover all my sin ; 
Let the healing streams abound, 

Make and keep me pure within : 
Thou of life the fountain art ; 

Freely let me take of thee. 
Spring thou up within my heart, 

Rise to all eternity.

/^^o Loved Me and Gave Himself for Me 

2 I've found a Friend, O such a Friend ! 3 I've found a Friend, O such a Friend, 
He bled, he died to save me; 



And not alone the gift of life. 
But his own self he gave me: 

Naught that I have mine own I call, 
I'll hold it for the Giver; 



So kind and true and tender! 
So wise a Counsellor and Guide, 

So mighty a Defender! 
From him who loves me now so well 

What power my soul shall sever? 



My heart, my strength, my life, my all, Shall life or death, shall earth or hell? 
Are his, and his forever. No: I am his forever.

2 Which of all our friends, to save us, 3 O for grace our hearts to soften ! 
Could or would have shed his blood ? Teach us. Lord, at length to love 



But our Jesus died to have us 
Reconciled in him to God : 
This was boundless love indeed ! 
Jesus is a friend in need.

Song of the Redeemed 



1 Ci for a thousand tongues to sing 

My dear Redeemer's praise. 
The glories of my God and King, 
The triumphs of his grace ! 

2 My gracious Master and my God, 

Assist me to proclaim, 
To spread through all the earth abroad. 
The honors of thy name. 

3 Jesus, the name that charms our fears. 

That bids our sorrows cease ; 



'Tis music in the sinner's ears, 
'Tis life, and health, and peace. 

He breaks the power of reigning sin. 
He sets the prisoner free ; 

His blood can make the foulest clean, 
His blood availed for me. 

He speaks, and, listening to his voice. 
New life the dead receive ; 

The mournful, broken hearts rejoice j 
The humble poor believe.

How sweet the name of Jesus sounds 3 Jesus, my Shepherd, Brother, Friend, 
In a believer's ear ! My Prophet, Priest, and King, 

It soothes his sorrows, heals his wounds. My Lord, my Life, my Way, my End, 
And drives away his fear. Accept the praise I bring. 



2 It makes the wounded spirit whole. 
And calms the troubled breast ; 
'Tis manna to the hungry soul. 
And to the weary rest. 



4 Weak is the effort of my heart. 
And cold my warmest thought. 
But when I see thee as thou art, 
I'll praise thee as I ought.

With every fleeting breath ; 
And may the music of thy name 
Refresh my soul in death.

2 I see thee not, I hear thee not, 3 Yet though I have not seen, and still 
Yet art thou oft with me ; Must rest in faith alone ; 

And earth hath ne'er so dear a spot I love thee, dearest Lord, and will, 

As where I meet with thee. Unseen, but not unknown. 

4 When death these mortal eyes shall seal, 
And still this throbbing heart, 
The rending veil shall thee reveal, 
All glorious as thou art.

I O Jesus, King most wonderful, 3 O Jesus, Light of all below, 

Thou Conqueror renowned, Thou Fount of life and fire. 

Thou Sweetness most ineffable. Surpassing all the joys we know. 

In whom all joys are found ! And all we can desire ! 



2 When once thou visitest the heart. 
Then truth begins to shine, 
Then earthly vanities depart. 
Then kindles love divine. 



4 May every heart confess thy name, 
And ever thee adore ; 
And seeking thee, itself inflame 
To seek thee more and more. 



5 Thee may our tongues forever bless ; 
Thee may we love alone ; 
And ever in our lives express 
The image of thine own.

Above All Praise 
2 I'd sing the precious blood he spilt, 3 I'd sing the characters he bears, 



My ransom from the dreadful guilt 

Of sin, and wrath divine : 
I'd sing his glorious righteousness. 
In which all-perfect, heavenly dress 
My soul shall ever shine. 



And all the forms of love he wears, 

Exalted on his throne : 
In loftiest songs of sweetest praise, 
I would to everlasting days 
Make all his glories known. 
4 Well, the delightful day will come 

When my dear Lord will bring me home, 

And I shall see his face ; 
Then with my Saviour, Brother, Friend, 
A blest eternity I'll spend, 
Triumphant in his grace.

Desiring to Love' 



2 Stronger his love than death or hell ; 
Its riches are unsearchable : 

The first-born sons of light 
Desire in vain its depths to see ; 
They cannot reach the mystery, 

The length and breadth and height.

3 God only knows the love of God : 
O that it now were shed abroad 

In this poor stony heart ! 
For love I sigh, for love I pine : 
This only portion. Lord, be mine. 
Be mine this better part. 

Charles Wesley, 1749 



8.8.6.8.8.6 'Cast Thy Burden Upon the Lord' 
O Lord, how happy should we be 3 Could we but kneel and cast our load, 



If we could cast our care on thee, 

If we from self could rest. 
And feel at heart that One above. 
In perfect wisdom, perfect love. 
Is working for the best ! 

2 How far from this our daily life. 
Ever disturbed by anxious strife, 

By sudden, wild alarms ! 
O could we but relinquish all 
Our earthly props, and simply fall 

On thine almighty arms ! 



Even while we pray, upon our God, 

Then rise with lightened cheer, 
Sure that the Father, who is nigh 
To still the famished raven's cry. 
Will hear in that we fear ! 

Lord, make these faithless hearts of ours 
Such lessons learn from birds and flowers; 

Make them from self to cease. 
Leave all things to a Father's will. 
And taste, before him lying still. 

Even in affliction, peace.

Where streams of living water flow 4 In death's dark vale I fear no ill, 
My ransomed soul he leadeth, With thee, dear Lord, beside me. 

And where the verdant pastures grow Thy rod and staff my comfort still. 
With food celestial feedeth. Thy cross before to guide me. 



3 Perverse and foolish oft I strayed. 
But yet in love he sought me. 
And on his shoulder gently laid 
And home rejoicing brought me. 



5 Thou spread'st a table in my sight. 
Thy unction grace bestoweth. 
And O ! what transport of delight 
From thy pure chalice floweth !

And so through all the length of days 

Thy goodness faileth never : 
Good Shepherd, may I sing thy praise 

Within thv house forever.

Always Near 



1 One gift, my God, I seek, — 
To know thee always near. 

To feel thy hand, to see thy face. 
Thy blessed voice to hear. 

2 Where'er I go, my God, 
O let me find thee there ; 

Where'er I stay, stay thou with me, 
A presence everywhere. 



3 And if thou bringest peace. 
Or if thou bringest pain. 

But come thyself with all that comes. 
And all shall go for gain. 

4 Long listening to thy words. 
My voice shall catch thy tone. 

And, locked in thine, my hand shall grow 
All loving like thine own.

* Psalm Twenty-three ' 



2 He leads me to the place 
Where heavenly pasture grows, 

Where living waters gently pass, 
And full salvation flows. 

3 If e'er I go astray. 

He doth my soul reclaim. 
And guides me in his own right way, 
For his most holy name. 

4 While he affords his aid, 
I cannot yield to fear ; 



Tho' I should walk thro' death's dark shade. 
My Shepherd's with me there. 

5 In spite of all my foes. 
Thou dost my table spread ; 

My cup with blessings overflows, 
And joy exalts my head. 

6 The bounties of thy love 
Shall crown my following days. 

Nor from thy house will I remove. 
Nor cease to speak thy praise. 

Isaac Watts, 17 19

The Tender Mercy of Our God 



1 Sweet is thy mercy. Lord ; 
Before thy mercy-seat 

My soul, adoring, pleads thy word. 
And owns thy mercy sweet. 

2 My need and thy desires 
Are all in Christ complete ; 

Thou hast the justice truth requires. 
And I thy mercy sweet. 



3 Where'er thy name is blest. 
Where'er thy people meet, 

There I delight in thee to rest. 
And find thy mercy sweet. 

4 Light thou my weary way. 
Lead thou my wandering feet. 

That while I stay on earth I may 
Still find thy mercy sweet. 



5 Thus shall the heavenly host 
Hear all my songs repeat 

To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, 
My joy, thy mercy sweet.

2 Discouraged in the work of life, 
Disheartened by its load, 
Shamed by its failures or its fears, 

I sink beside the road, — 
But let me only think of thee. 



3 Thy calmness bends serene above, 

My restlessness to still ; 
Around me flows thy quickening life 

To nerve my faltering will ; 
Thy presence fills my solitude ; 



And then new heart springs up in me. Thy providence turns all to good. 

4 Embosomed deep in thy dear love. 

Held in thy law I stand ; 

Thy hand in all things I behold, 

And all things in thy hand ; 

Thou leadest me by unsought ways. 

And turnest my mourning into praise.

When I Awake I Am Still with Thee 

(2) As in the dawning, o'er the waveless ocean, 
The image of the morning star doth rest. 
So in this stillness, thou beholdest only 
Thine image in the waters of my breast. 

3 When sinks the soul, subdued by toil, to slumber, 

Its closing eye looks up to thee in prayer ; 
Sweet the repose beneath thy wings o'ershading. 
But sweeter still to wake and find thee there. 

4 So shall it be at last, in that bright morning 

When the soul waketh, and life's shadows flee : 
O ! in that hour, fairer than daylight dawning, 
Shall rise the glorious thought, I am with thee.

* For Divine Strength ' 



2 Lord, we have wandered forth through doubt and sorrow, 

And thou hast made each step an onward one ; 
And we will ever trust each unknown morrow, — 
Thou wilt sustain us till its work is done. 

3 In the heart's depths a peace serene and holy 

Abides ; and when pain seems to have its will. 
Or we despair, O, may that peace rise slowly. 
Stronger than agony, and we be still ! 

4 Now, Father, now, in thy dear presence kneeling. 

Our spirits yearn to feel thy kindling love, — 

Now make us strong ; we need thy deep revealing 

Of trust and strength and calmness from above.

The toil-worn frame and mind, 
AUke confess thy sweet control, 
O love of God most kind ! 



3 And though we turn us from thy face, 5 But not alone thy care we claim, 
And wander wide and long. Our wayward steps to win ; 

Thou hold'st us still in thine embrace. We know thee by a dearer name, 
O love of God most strong ! O love of God within !

To rise o'er sin and fear and death,

C. M. ' The Faithfulness of God ' 

Begin, my tongue, some heavenly 3 
theme. 

And speak some boundless thing. 
The mighty works, or mightier name. 

Of our eternal King. 

4 
Tell of his wondrous faithfulness. 

And sound his power abroad ; 
Sing the sweet promise of his grace. 

And the performing God. 



His very word of grace is strong 
As that which built the skies ; 

The voice that rolls the stars along 
Speaks all the promises. 



O might I hear thy heavenly tongue 

But whisper, ' Thou art mine,' 
Those gentle words should raise my 
song 
To notes almost divine.

PORTUGUESE HYMN lis. 

^ Psalm Twenty-Three^ 

1 The Lord is my Shepherd, no want shall I know; 
I feed in green pastures, safe-folded I rest; 

He leadeth my soul where the still waters flow, 

Restores me when wandering, redeems when oppressed. 

2 Through the valley and shadow of death though I stray, 
Since thou art my guardian, no evil I fear; 

Thy rod shall defend me, thy staff be my stay; 
No harm can befall, with my Comforter near. 

3 In the midst of affliction my table is spread; 
With blessings unmeasured my cup runneth o'er; 

With perfume and oil thou anointest my head: 
O what shall I ask of thy providence more? 

4 Let goodness and mercy, my bountiful God, 
Still follow my steps till I meet thee above; 

I seek, by the path which my forefathers trod 

Through the land of their sojourn, thy kingdom of love. 

James Montgomery, 1822

2 Though Satan's wrath beset our path, 3 

And worldly scorn assail us, 
While thou art near we will not fear. 

Thy strength shall never fail us : 
Thy rod and staff shall keep us safe. 

And guide our steps for ever ; 
Nor shades of death, nor hell beneath, 

Our souls from thee shall sever. 



Hat Wohl Gebaut 

In all the strife of mortal life 

Our feet shall stand securely; 
Temptation's hour shall lose its power, 

For thou shalt guard us surely. 
O God, renew, with heavenly dew. 

Our body, soul, and spirit, 
Until we stand at thy right hand. 

Through Jesus' saving merit.

2 From the sword at noonday wasting, 

From the noisome pestilence, 
In the depth of midnight blasting, 

God shall be thy sure defence: 
He shall charge his angel legions 

Watch and ward o'er thee to keep; 
Tho* thou walk through hostile regions, 

Tho' in desert wilds thou sleep. 



3 Since, with pure and firm affection 
Thou on God hast set thy love, 
With the wings of his protection 

He will shield thee from above: 
Thou shalt call on him in trouble. 

He will hearken, he will save; 
Here for grief reward thee double, 
Crown with life beyond the grave.

And hushed their raging at thy word. 

Who walkedst on the foaming deep. 

And calm amid the storm didst sleep, 

O hear us when we cry to thee 

For those in peril on the sea! 



Upon the waters dark and rude. 
And bid their angry tumult cease, 
And give for wild confusion peace, 
O hear us when we cry to thee 
For those in peril on the sea! 



4 O Trinity of love and power. 

Our brethren shield in danger's hour; 

From rock and tempest, fire and foe. 

Protect them wheresoe'er they go; 
And ever let there rise to thee 
Glad hymns of praise from land and sea.

And scan his work in vain ;

How sure is their defence ! 
Eternal wisdom is their guide. 
Their help omnipotence. 

(2) In foreign realms and lands remote, 
Supported by thy care. 
Thro' burning climes they pass unhurt, 
And breathe in tainted air. 



Obedient to thy will ! 
The sea that roars at thy command. 
At thy command is still. 

5 In midst of dangers, fears, and deaths. 
Thy goodness we adore : 
We praise thee for thy mercies past. 
And humbly hope for more. 



3 When by the dreadful tempest borne (6) Our life, while thou preservest life. 
High on the broken wave. Thy sacrifice shall be ; 

They know thou art not slow to hear. And death,when death shall be our lot, 

Nor impotent to save. Shall join our souls to thee.

When all created streams are dried, 
Thy fulness is the same ; 

May I with this be satisfied, 
And glory in thy name. 

No good in creatures can be found, 
But may be found in thee ; 

I must have all things and abound, 
While God is God to me. 



He that has made my heaven secure. 
Will here all good provide ; 

While Christ is rich, can I be poor ? 
What can I want beside ? 

O Lord, I cast my care on thee ; 

I triumph and adore : 
Henceforth my great concern shall be 

To love and please thee more. 
John Rvland, 1777

1 O God, my strength and fortitude 

Of force I must love thee ; 
Thou art my castle and defence 
In my necessity. 

2 My God, my rock, in whom I trust. 

The worker of my wealth ; 
My refuge, buckler, and my shield. 
The horn of all my health ! 

3 I sore beset with pain and grief, 

Did pray to God for grace ; 
And he forthwith heard my complaint 



Out of his holy place. 

7 Thou teachest me thy saving health, 
Thy right hand is my tower ; 
Thy love and gentleness also 
Do still increase my power. 



(4) The Lord descended from above. 

And bowed the heavens high ; 
And underneath his feet he cast 
The darkness of the sky. 

(5) On cherub and on cherubim 

Full royally he rode. 
And on the wings of mighty winds 
Came flying all abroad. 

6 He brought me forth to open place, 
That so I might be free ; 
And kept me safe, because he had 
A favor unto me.

When storms of sharp distress invade ; Supplies the city of our God ; 

Ere we can offer our complaints. Life, love, and joy, still gliding through. 

Behold him present with his aid ! And watering our divine abode. 

2 Loud may the troubled ocean roar ; 4 That sacred stream, thy holy Word, 
In sacred peace our souls abide, Our grief allays, our fear controls ; 

While every nation, every shore. Sweet peace thy promises afford, [souls. 

Trembles, and dreads the swellingtide. And give new strength to fainting 

5 Zion enjoys her Monarch's love. 

Secure against a threatening hour; 
Nor can her firm foundations move, 

Built on his truth, and armed with power. 

Isaac Watts, 1719

2 Is health and ease my happy share ? 4 ' Give me a calm, a thankful heart, 
O may I bless my God ! From every murmur free, 

Thy kindness let my songs declare, The blessings of thy grace impart, 

And spread thy praise abroad. And let me live to thee. 



3 And O, whate'er of earthly bliss 
Thy sovereign hand denies. 
Accepted at thy throne of grace, 
Let this petition rise, —

* The Power of Faith ' 



1 O for a faith that will not shrink 3 A faith that shines more bright and clear 

Though pressed by many a foe. When tempests rage without. 

That will not tremble on the brink That, when in danger, knows no fear. 

Of poverty or woe ; In darkness feels no doubt ; 

2 That will not murmur nor complain (4) A faith that keeps the narrow way 

Beneath the chastening rod. Till life's last spark is fled, 

But in the hour of grief or pain And with a pure and heavenly ray 

Can lean upon its God ; Lights up a dying bed ! 

5 Lord, give me such a faith as this. 
And then, whate'er may come, 
I taste e'en now the hallowed bliss 
Of an eternal home.

'Thy Way, Not Mine' 



1 I dare not choose my lot ; 

I would not, if I might : 
Choose thou for me, my God j 

So shall I walk aright. 
Take thou my cup, and it 

With joy or sorrow fill. 
As best to thee may seem ; 

Choose thou my good and ill. 



3 Choose thou for me my friends. 

My sickness or my health ; 
Choose thou my cares for me. 

My poverty or wealth. 
Not mine, not mine the choice. 

In things or great or small ; 
Be thou my guide, my strength. 

My wisdom, and my all.

* Thou wilt Keep Him in Perfect Peace ' 

2 Peace, perfect peace, by thronging duties pressed ? 
To do the will of Jesus, this is rest. 

3 Peace, perfect peace, with sorrows surging round ? 
On Jesus' bosom naught but calm is found. 

4 Peace, perfect peace, with loved ones far away ? 
In Jesus' keeping we are safe, and they. 

5 Peace, perfect peace, our future all unknown ? 
Jesus we know, and he is on the throne. 

6 Peace, perfect peace, death shadowing us and ours .^ 
Jesus has vanquished death and all its powers.

And Jesus call us to heaven's perfect peace.

1 When shadows gather on our way, 

Fast deepening as the night, 
Be thou, O God, the spirit's stay. 
Our inward Light ! 

2 Amid the outward toil and strife, 

The world's dull roar and din. 
Still speak thy word of higher life. 
Thou Voice within ! 



3 When burdens sore upon us press, 

And vexing cares increase. 
Spring thou a fount of quietness. 
Our hidden Peace ! 

4 Though fond hopes fail,and joy depart. 

And friends should faithless prove, 

O save us from the bitter heart. 

Indwelling Love !

2 For one thing only, Lord, dear Lord, I plead, — 

Lead me aright. 
Though strength should falter and though heart should bleed. 
Through peace to light. 

3 I do not ask, O Lord, that thou shouldst shed 

Full radiance here; 
Give but a ray of peace, that I may tread 
Without a fear. 

4 I do not ask my cross to understand, 

My way to see; 
Better in darkness just to feel thy hand. 
And follow thee. 

5 Joy is like restless day, but peace divine 

Like quiet night: 
Lead me, O Lord, till perfect day shall shine. 
Through peace to light.

* He Leads Us On ' 

2 He leads us on through all the unquiet years ; 
Past all our dreamland hopes, and doubts, and fears 
He guides our steps ; through all the tangled maze 
Of losses, sorrows, and o'erclouded days 

We know his will is done, 
And still he leads us on. 

3 And he, at last, — after the weary strife. 
After the restless fever we call life, 
After the dreariness, the aching pain, 

The wayward struggles which have proved in vain. 
After our toils are past, — 
Will give us rest at last.

2 Only be still and wait his leisure 

In cheerful hope, with heart content 
To take whate'er thy Father's pleasure 

And all-deserving love hath sent ; 
Nor doubt our inmost wants are known 
To him who chose us for his own. 

3 Sing, pray, and keep his ways unswerving. 

So do thine own part faithfully. 
And trust his word ; though undeserving, 

Thou yet shalt find it true for thee, — 
God never yet forsook at need 
The soul that trusted him indeed.

* Psalm One Hundred and Twenty-One ' 

2 He will not suffer that thy foot be moved: 

Safe shalt thou be. 
No careless slumber shall his eyelids close 

Who keepeth thee. 
Behold our God, the Lord, he slumbereth ne'er 
Who keepeth Israel in his holy care. 

3 Jehovah is himself thy Keeper true, 

Thy changeless Shade; 
Jehovah thy Defence on thy right hand 

Himself hath made: 
And thee no sun by day shall ever smite; 
No moon shall harm thee in the silent night. 

4 From every evil shall he keep thy soul, 

From every sin: 
Jehovah shall preserve thy going out. 

Thy coming in: 
Above thee watching, he whom we adore 
Shall keep thee henceforth, yea, for evermore.

I loved to choose and see my path ; but now

I loved the garish day, and, spite of fears, 
Pride ruled my will: remember not past years!

2 Sometimes 'mid scenes of deepest gloom, 4 And when my task on earth is done. 
Sometimes where Eden's bowers bloom, When, by thy grace,the victory's won, 
By waters calm, o'er troubled sea, E'en death's cold wave I will not flee, 
Still 'tis his hand that leadeth me. Since God thro' Jordan leadeth me. 

3 Lord, I would clasp thy hand in mine, (5) He leadeth me, he leadeth me, 

Nor ever murmur or repine ; By his own hand he leadeth me : 

Content, whatever lot I see. His faithful follower I would be. 

Since 'tis my God that leadeth me. For by his hand he leadeth me.

Unhelped by thee, in error's maze we grope. 
While passion stains and folly dims our youth. 
And age comes on uncheered by faith or hope. 

3 Lead us, O Father, in the paths of right ; 

Blindly we stumble when we walk alone. 
Involved in shadows of a moral night ; 
Only with thee we journey safely on. 

4 Lead us, O Father, to thy heavenly rest. 

However rough and steep the pathway be, 
Through joy or sorrow, as thou deemest best. 

Until our lives are perfected in thee.

' Joy and Peace 



1 Sometimes a light surprises 

The Christian while he sings ; 
It is the Lord, who rises 

With healing in his wings : 
When comforts are declining, 

He grants the soul again 
A season of clear shining, 

To cheer it after rain. 

2 In holy contemplation, 

We sweetly then pursue 
The theme of God's salvation. 
And find it ever new: 



in Believing* 

Set free from present sorrow. 
We cheerfully can say, — 

E'en let the unknown to-morrow 
Bring with it what it may. 

It can bring with it nothing 

But he will bear us through ; 
Who gives the lilies clothing 

Will clothe his people too; 
Beneath the spreading heavens 

No creature but is fed. 
And he who feeds the ravens 

Will give his children bread.

2 I ask thee for a thoughtful love, (4) Wherever in the world I am. 

Thro' constant watching wise, 
To meet the glad with joyful smiles, 

And to wipe the weeping eyes ; 
And a heart at leisure from itself 



To soothe and sympathize. 

3 I would not have the restless will 
That hurries to and fro, 

Seeking for some great thing to do, 
Or secret thing to know ; 

I would be treated as a child, 
And guided where I go. 



In whatsoe'er estate, 
I have a fellowship with hearts 

To keep and cultivate. 
And a work of lowly love to do 

For the Lord on whom I wait. 



5 So I ask thee for the daily strength, 
To none that ask denied. 
And a mind to blend with outward life 

While keeping at thy side ; 
Content to fill a little space, 
If thou be glorified.

"■My Psalm ' 

2 Enough, that blessings undeserved 4 That death seems but a covered way 

Have marked my erring track ; Which opens into hght, 

That,wheresoe'er my feet have swerved, Wherein no blinded child can stray 
Thy chastening turned me back ; Beyond his Father's sight. 

3 That more and more a providence 5 No longer forward or behind 

Of love is understood, I look, in hope or fear. 

Making the springs of time and sense But grateful take the good I find, 

Sweet with eternal good ; God's blessing, now and here. 

John G. Whittier, 1859

'■A Psalm of Trust ' 



1 I little see, I little know. 
Yet can I fear no ill : 
He who hath guided me till now 
Will be my leader still. 



3 He will not leave my soul forlorn, 
I still must find him true. 
Whose mercies have been new each morn 
And every evening new. 



2 No burden yet was on me laid 4 Upon his providence I lean. 
Of trouble or of care. As lean in faith I must; 

But he my trembling step hath stayed. The lesson of my life hath been 
And given me strength to bear. A heart of grateful trust. 

5 And so my onward way I fare 

With happy heart and calm. 

And mingle with my daily care 

The music of my psalm.

2 Praise him when clouds are dark ; 
True faith waits not to prove : [mark, 

Tho' hope no brightening gleam may 

His meaning still is love. 

Praise him when drear and lone 

The shadows round thee fall — 
No eye upon thy sins but One — 

Fear not ! he pardons all. 

3 Praise him when home is sweet, 
As though we ne'er should part ; 

But pray, while kindred spirits meet, 
Pray for a thoughtful heart. 



Praise him when far away 
On mountain or the sea ; 
Each place is home to them who pray i 
Thy Father guardeth thee. 

4 Praise him when joyful songs 

The saints on earth unite, 
In sacred chorus, with the throngs 

Of angels in the height. 

At all times praise the Lord ; 

His promises are sure : 
Fear not, doubt not ; his steadfast word 

Unchanging shall endure.

The Memory of His Goodness 



(2) Unnumbered comforts to my soul 

Thy tender care bestowed, 
Before my infant heart conceived 
From whom those com forts flowed. 

(3) ^^'^hen in the slippery paths of youth 

With heedless steps I ran, 
Thine arm unseen conveyed me safe. 
And led me up to man. 



5 Ten thousand thousand precious gifts 

My daily thanks employ ; 
Nor is the least a cheerful heart 
That tastes those gifts with joy. 

6 Through every period of my life 

Thy goodness I'll pursue ; 
And after death, in distant worlds, 
The glorious theme renew. 



(4) When worn with sickness, oft hast 7 Through all eternity, to thee 



With health renewed my face ; [thou 
And, when in sins and sorrows sunk. 
Revived my soul with grace. 



MS 



A joyful song I'll raise ; 

For, O, eternity's too short 

To utter all thy praise !

' Thy Will is Done ' 



O God, not only in distress. 
In pain and want and weariness. 
Thy tender Spirit stoops to bless. 
Thy will is done. 

But oftener on the wings of peace 
And girt about with tenderness. 
Thou comest,and all troubles cease, — 
Thy will is done. 

In all that nature hath supplied. 
In flowers along the country side, 
In morning light, in eventide, 
Thy will is done. 



4 In youthful days, when joys increase. 
In light, in hope, in happiness. 

In quiet times of trustful peace, 
Thy will is done. 

5 And when the burdened heart can bring 
Its sorrows to thy feet and cling 
Till hope surpasses sorrowing. 

Thy will is done. 

6 Thy will is pure, O Lord, and just ; 
And we, frail creatures of the dust, 
Through good or ill, can only trust 

Thy will is done.

This tho't comes with divinest peace,

Yet calm and still, o'er heath and hill, A God of love from heaven above 
The stars will soon be shining. Shall shed his radiance o'er thee.

2 'Tis ne'er too late, while life shall 
last, 
A new life to begin ; 
'Tis ne'er too late to leave the past, 

And break with self and sin : 
And we this day, both old and young, 

Would earnestly aspire 
For hearts to nobler purpose strung, 
And purified desire. 



3 Not for ourselves alone we plead. 

But for all faithful souls 
Who serve thy cause by word or deed, 

Whose names thy book enrolls. 
O speed thy work, victorious King, 

And give thy workers might, 
That through the world thy truth may 

ring, 
And all men see thy light !

For even things most lowly

Then let each waiting spirit 

Enjoy the vision bright, 
And spread the truth of heaven 

Wide as the heaven's own light ;

And every human heart 
Shall join in one great service. 

Each happy in his part ; 
And God shall be our Master,

And heaven on earth be won.

2 Strong Son of God, whose work was His that sent thee. 

One with the Father, thought and deed and word, 
One make us all, true comrades in thy service. 
And make us one in thee with God the Lord. 

3 O Son of Man, of all the world Redeemer, 

Who for our sakes didst hang upon the tree. 
Thou bearest yet man's weight of sin and sorrow; 
Help us to take thy cross and share with thee. 

4 O Prince of peace, thou bringer of good tidings. 

Teach us to speak thy word of hope and cheer, — 
Rest for the soul, and strength for all man's striving, 
Light for the path of life, and God brought near. 

5 Lord God, whose grace has called us to thy service. 

How good thy thoughts toward us, how great their sum! 
We work with thee. We go where thou wilt lead us, 
Until in all the earth thy kingdom come.

Firm on the Rock, and strong in thee. Until my very heart o'erflow

And didst thou,Lord,ourburdens bear? Shall we not joyful seekers be, 

Didst thou for love of us forsake [air ? And to thy feet divinely brought. 
Those glorious heights, that heavenly Help weaker souls, dear Lord, to thee ? 

2 O could our weakness move thy might? 4 Celestial seeker, send us forth;

Strangers to the living word, 
Let the Saviour's herald go, 

Let the voice of hope be heard.

Carry truth's unsullied ray ; 
Where are crimes of blackest dye, 
There the saving sign display.

Still unsheathed the Spirit's sword, 
Till the kingdoms of the world 
Are the kingdom of the Lord.

Daily our lives would show 

Weakness made strong. 
Toilsome and gloomy ways 

Brightened with song ; 
Some deeds of kindness done, 
Some souls by patience won, 

Dear Lord, to thee ; 
Some word of hope for hearts 

Burdened with fears. 
Some balm of peace for eyes 

Blinded with tears. 



Love s Offering ' 



Some dews of mercy shed. 
Some wayward footsteps led. 
Dear Lord, to thee.

1 Rise up, O men of God ! 
Have done with lesser things ; 

Give heart and mind and soul and strength 
To serve the King of kings. 

2 Rise up, O men of God ! 
His kingdom tarries long : 

Bring in the day of brotherhood. 
And end the night of wrong. 



3 Rise up, O men of God ! 
The church for you doth wait. 

Her strength unequal to her task : 
Rise up and make her great.

* The Reformer's Vow ' 

2 Upon that painful road 4 To draw thy blessing down, 
By saints serenely trod, [flowed. And bring the wronged redress, 

Whereon their hallowing influence And give this glorious world its crown 
Would we go forth, O God, — Of truth and righteousness. 



3 'Gainst doubt and shame and fear 
In human hearts to strive. 

That all may learn to love and bear. 
To conquer self, and live, — 



5 No dreams from toil to charm, 
No trembling on the tongue, 

Lord, in thy rest may we be calm. 
Through thy completeness strong. 

Samuel Johnson, 1846 



375 S. M. 'The Field of the World' 

I Sow in the morn thy seed, 3 Thou canst not toil in vain 



At eve hold not thy hand ; 
To doubt and fear give thou no heed. 
Broadcast it o'er the land ; 

2 And duly shall appear. 

In verdure, beauty, strength. 

The tender blade, the stalk, the ear 
And the full corn at length. 



Cold, heat, and moist, and dry 
Shall foster and mature the grain 
For garners in the sky. 

4 Thence, when the glorious end, 
The day of God, shall come. 

The angel reapers shall descend, 
And heaven shout, Harvest-home !

' All Things Come of Thee ' 



1 We give thee but thine own, 
Whate'er the gift may be ; 

All that we have is thine alone, 
A trust, O Lord, from thee. 

2 May we thy bounties thus 
As stewards true receive. 

And gladly, as thou blessest us. 
To thee our first fruits give. 

(3) O, hearts are bruised and dead. 
And homes are bare and cold. 



4 To comfort and to bless. 
To find a balm for woe. 

To tend the lone and fatherless, — 
Is angels work below. 

5 The captive to release. 
To God the lost to bring. 

To teach the way of life and peace, — 
It is a Christlike thing ; 

6 And we believe thy word, 
Though dim our faith may be ; 



And lambs for whom the Shepherd bled Whate'er for thine we do, 6 Lord, 
Are straying from the fold ! We do it unto thee.

2 And part them. Lord, to each and all, 3 And hasten. Lord, that perfect day 
As each and all shall need, When pain and death shall cease, 

To rise like incense, each to thee. And thy just rule shall fill the earth 
In noble thought and deed. With health, and light, and peace j 

4 When ever blue the sky shall gleam, 
And ever green the sod. 
And man's rude work deface no more 
The paradise of God.

What can we render. Lord, to thee, 
When all the worlds are thine ? 

2 But thou hast needy brethren here. 
Partakers of thy grace. 
Whose humble names thou wilt confess 
Before thy Father's face. 



Thy pleading voice is heard ; 
In them thou may'st be clothed and fed. 
And visited, and cheered. 

4 Then help us. Lord, thy yoke to wear, 
And joy to do thy will. 
Each other's burdens gladly bear, 
And love's sweet law fulfil. 



5 To thee our all devoted be. 

In whom we move and live ; 
Freely we have received of thee.

^God^s Law and Love'' 



384 L.M. 

1 O God, in whom we live and move, 
Thy love is law, thy law is love ; 
Thy present Spirit waits to fill 
The soul which comes to do thy will. 

2 Unto thy children's spirits teach 
Thy love beyond the power of speech ; 
And make them know with joyful awe 
The encircling presence of thy law. 

5 Such faith, O God, 
That we may work 
Who works for just 
Who works in love, 



3 That law doth give to truth and right, 
Howe'er despised,a conquering might. 
And makes each fondly worshipped lie 
And boasting wrong to cower and die. 

4 Its patient working doth fulfil 
Man's hope,and God's all-perfect will, 
Nor suffers one true word or thought 
Or deed of love, to come to naught. 

our spirits fill, 
in patience still : 
ice, works with thee, 
thy child shall be.

The Blessing of Work 

Work ye, then, while yet 'tis day ; 3 Working not alone for golcl, 
Work, ye Christians, while ye may ; 
Work for all that's great and good. 
Working for your daily food. 
Working whilst the golden hours. 
Health, and strength, and youth are 
yours, 



Not the work that's bought and sold, 
Nor as traffickers at marts. 
But as fitteth honest hearts. 
Working till your spirits rest 
With the spirits of the blest.

' For Believers before Work ' 

1 Forth in thy name, O Lord, I go 4 Thee may I set at my right hand. 
My daily labor to pursue, Whoseeyesmy inmost substance see. 

Thee, only thee, resolved to know And labor on at thy command. 
In all I think, or speak, or do. And offer all my works to thee. 

2 The task thy wisdom hath assigned, 5 Give me to bear thy easy yoke, 

O, let me cheerfully fulfil, And every moment watch and pray, 

In all my works thy presence find. And still to things eternal look. 
And prove thy good and perfect will. And hasten to thy glorious day ; 

(3) Preserve me from my calling's snare, (6) For thee delightfully employ [given. 
And hide my simple heart above, — Whate'er thy bounteous grace hath 

Above the thorns of choking care. And run my course with even joy, 
The gilded baits of worldly love. And closely walk with thee to heaven.

Thy Willing Servants 



1 Our wishes, our desires, control ; 4 Still make us, when temptation's 
Mould every purpose of the soul ; near, 

O'er all may we victorious be As our worst foe ourselves to fear, — 

That stands between ourselves and Thy word our safety from alarm, 
thee. Our strength thine everlasting arm. 



3 Twice blest will all our blessings be, (5) And while we to thy glory live, 
When we can look thro' them to thee, May we to thee all glory give. 
When each glad heart its tribute pays 
Of love and gratitude and praise.

Until the joyful summons come 
That calls thy willing servants home. 
Jane B. Cotterill, 1815 



L. M. ^The Character of a Happy Life' 

I How happy is he born and taught, (3) Who hath his life from rumors freed, 



That serveth not another's will. 
Whose armor is his honest thought, 
And simple truth his utmost skill. 



Whose conscience is his strong retreat. 
Whose state can neither flatterers feed, 
Nor ruin, make oppressors great. 



2 Whose passions not his masters are, 4 Who God doth late and early pray 
Whose soul is still prepared for death, More of his grace than goods to lend, 

Not tied unto the world by care And walks with man, from day to day, 
Of public fame or private breath. As with a brother and a friend ! 

5 This man is freed from servile bands 

Of hope to rise, or fear to fall, 
Lord of himself, though not of lands. 

And having nothing, yet hath all. 

Henry Wotton, c. 1614

Service Its Own Reward 



1 Who calls the glorious labor hard ? 3 It may not be our lot to wield 
Who deems it not its own reward ? The sickle in the ripened field, 
Who, for its trials, counts it less Nor ours to hear on summer eves 
A cause of praise and thankfulness ? The reaper's song among the sheaves. 

2 And were this life the utmost span, (4) Now is the seed-time: God alone 
The only end and aim of man. Beholds the end of what is sown ; 
Better the toil of fields like these Beyond our vision weak and dim 
Than waking dream and slothful ease. The harvest-time is hid with him: 

5 Yet where our duty's task is wrought 
In unison with God's great thought, 
The near and future blend in one, 
And whatsoe'er is v/illed, is done.

4 Blest, too, is he who can divine 

Where real right doth lie. 
And dares to take the side that seems

And right the day must win j

1 O what, if we are Christ's, 
Is earthly shame or loss ? 

Bright shall the crown of glory be, 
When we have borne the cross. 

2 Keen was the trial once, 
_ Bitter the cup of woe. 

When martyred saints, baptized in blood, 
Christ's sufferings shared below. 



3 Bright is their glory now. 
Boundless their joy above. 

Where, on the bosom of their God, 
They rest in perfect love. 

4 Lord, may that grace be ours. 
Like them in faith to bear 

All that of sorrow, grief, or pain. 
May be our portion here. 



5 Enough, if thou at last 
The word of blessing give, 

And let us rest beneath thy feet. 
Where saints and angels live.

* The Narrow Way * 



2 Arm, arm thee for the fight ! 
Cast useless loads away ;: 

Watch through the darkest hours of 
night ; 
Toil through the hottest day. 

3 To labor and to love, 
To pardon and endure, 

To lift thy heart to God above, 
And keep thy conscience pure, — 



4 Be this thy constant aim. 
Thy hope, thy chief delight. 

What matter who should whisper 
blame 
Or who should scorn or slight, 

5 If but thy God approve, 
And if, within thy breast. 

Thou feel the comfort of his love. 
The earnest of his rest ?

2 The sons of fathers we 

By whom our faith is taught 
To fear no ill, to light 

The holy fight they fought : 
Heroic warriors, ne'er from Christ 
P ^y any lure or guile enticed. 



3 March on, O soul, with strength. 
As strong the battle rolls ! 
'Gainst lies and lusts and wrongs, 
Let courage rule our souls : 
In keenest strife. Lord, may we stand, 
Upheld and strengthened by thy hand. 



4 Not long the conflict : soon 
The holy war shall cease. 
Faith's warfare ended,— won 
The home of endless peace : 
Look up ! the victor's crown at length ; 
March on, O soul, march on, with strength !

Is true freedom but to break 
Fetters for our own dear sake. 
And with leathern hearts forget 
That we owe mankind a debt ? 
No ! true freedom is to share 
All the chains our brothers wear, 
And, with heart and hand, to be 
Earnest to make others free.

3 They are slaves who fear to speak 
For the fallen and the weak ; 
They are slaves who will not choose 
Hatred, scoffing, and abuse. 
Rather than in silence shrink 
From the truth they needs must think ; 
They are slaves who dare not be 
In the right with two or three.

2 Stand up, stand up for Jesus ! 

The trumpet call obey, 
Forth to the mighty conflict 

In this his glorious day : 
Ye that are men now serve him 4 

Against unnumbered foes ; 
Let courage rise with danger. 

And strength to strength oppose. 

3 Stand up, stand up for Jesus ! 

Stand in his strength alone ; 
The arm of flesh will fail you, 
Ye dare not trust your own ; 



Men, Be Strong 
Put on the gospel armor, 

Each piece put on with prayer; 
Where duty calls, or danger, 

Be never wanting there. 
Stand up, stand up for Jesus ! 

The strife will not be long ; 
This day the noise of battle.

A crown of life shall be,

2 The martyr first, whose eagle eye 

Could pierce beyond the grave. 
Who saw his Master in the sky, 

And called on him to save ; 
Like him, with pardon on his tongue 

In midst of mortal pain, 
He prayed for them that did the wrong: 

Who follows in his train ? 

3 A glorious band, the chosen few 

On whom the Spirit came, [knew, 
Twelve valiant saints, their hope they 
And mocked the cross and flame j 



of Martyrs 

They met thetyrant's brandished steel. 
The lion's gory mane ; [feel : 

They bowed their necks the death to 
Who follows in their train ? 

A noble army, men and boys. 

The matron and the maid. 
Around the Saviour's throne rejoice. 

In robes of light arrayed : [heaven 
They climbed the steep ascent of 

Through peril, toil and pain : 
O God, to us may grace be given 

To follow in their train.

2 Like a mighty army 

Moves the Church of God : 
Brothers, we are treading 

Where the saints have trod : 
We are not divided, 

All one body we. 
One in hope, in doctrine. 

One in charity. 

3 Crowns and thrones may perish. 

Kingdoms rise and wane, 
But the Church of Jesus 
Constant will remain ; 



Gates of hell can never 

'Gainst that Church prevail ; 

We have Christ's own promise. 
And that cannot fail. 

4 Onward, then, ye people. 
Join our happy throng. 
Blend with ours your voices 

In the triumph-song, — 
' Glory, laud, and honor 

Unto Christ the King ! ' 
This through countless ages 
Men and angels sing.

2 Jesus, Lord and Master, 

At thy sacred feet, 
Here with hearts rejoicing 

See thy children meet : 
Often have we left thee. 

Often gone astray ; 
Keep us, mighty Saviour, 

In the narrow way. 

3 All our days direct us 

In the way we go, 
Lead us on victorious 
Over every foe; 



Bid thine angels shield us. 

When the storm-clouds lower; 

Pardon, Lord, and save us 
In the last dread hour. 

4 Then with saints and angels 

May we join above. 
Offering prayers and praises 

At thy throne of love : 
When the toil is over, 

Then come rest and peace, 
Jesus in his beauty. 

Songs that never cease.

2 One the light of God's own presence, One the gladness of rejoicing 



O'er his ransomed people shed, 
Chasing far the gloom and terror, 

Brightening all the path we tread ; 
One the object of our journey. 

One the faith which never tires. 
One the earnest looking forward. 

One the hope our God inspires ; 

3 One the strain that lips of thousands 
Lift as from the heart of one, 
One the conflict, one the peril, 
One the march in God begun j 



On the far eternal shore, 
Where the one Almighty Father 
Reigns in love for evermore. 

4 Onward therefore, pilgrim brothers. 

Onward, with the cross our aid ! 
Bear its shame, and fight its battle. 

Till we rest beneath its shade. 
Soon shall come the great awaking. 

Soon the rending of the tomb ; 
Then the scattering of all shadows. 

And the end of toil and gloom.

2 Nearer, ever nearer, 

Christ, we draw to thee. 
Deep in adoration 

Bending low the knee : 
Thou for our redemption 

Cam'st on earth to die ; 
Thou, that we might follow, 

Hast gone up on high. 

3 Great and ever greater 

Are thy mercies here ; 
True and everlasting 

Are the glories there, 
Where no pain nor sorrow. 

Toil nor care is known, 
Where the angel-legions 

Circle round thy throne. 

(4) Brighter still and brighter 
Glows the western sun. 
Shedding all its gladness 
O'er our work that's done 



Time will soon be over. 
Toil and sorrow past. 

May we, blessed Saviour, 
Find a rest at last. 

5 Onward, ever onward. 

Journeying o'er the road 
Worn by saints before us, 

Journeying on to God ; 
Leaving all behind us. 

May we hasten on. 
Backward never looking 

Till the prize is won. 

(6) Higher, then, and higher. 
Bear the ransomed soul, 
Earthly toils forgetting, 
Saviour, to its goal ; 
Where in joys unthought of 

Saints with angels sing, 
Never weary raising 
Praises to their King.

The Pilgrim Chorus 

2 Bright youth and snow-crovv^ned age, 5 Yes, on through life's long path. 
Strong men and maidens meek, Still chanting as ye go ; 



Raise high your free, exulting song, 
God's wondrous praises speak. 

3 With all the angel choirs. 
With all the saints on earth. 



From youth to age, by night and day. 
In gladness and in woe, 

6 Still lift your standard high, 
Still march in firm array. 



Pour out the strains of joy and bliss. As warriors through the darkness toil 
True rapture, noblest mirth. Till dawns the golden day. 

4 With voice as full and strong 7 At last the march shall end. 

As ocean's surging praise. The wearied ones shall rest, 

Send forth the hymns our fathers loved. The pilgrims find their Father's house. 
The psalms of ancient days. Jerusalem the blest.

In his name gathered are,

* The Kingdom of God is within Tou ' 

2 The kingdom of the Lord, — 3 The living waters flow 

It Cometh not with show ; That fainting souls may drink ; 

Nor throne, nor crown, nor sword, The mystic fruit-trees grow 

Proclaim its might below : Along the river's brink ; 

Tho' dimly scanned thro' mists of sin. We taste e'en now the waters sweet 

The Lord's true kingdom is within. And of the tree of life we eat. 

4 Not homeless wanderers here 
Our exile songs we sing; 
Thou art our home most dear, 
Thou city of our King : 
Thy future bliss we cannot tell, 
Content in thee on earth to dwell.

2 Did we in our own strength confide, 3 And the' this world, with devils filled. 



Our striving would be losing. 
Were not the right man on our side, 

Xhe man of God's own choosing. 
Dost ask who that may be ? 
Christ Jesus, it is he. 
Lord Sabaoth his name, 
From age to age the same, 

And he must win the battle. 



Should threaten to undo us ; 
We will not fear, for God hath willed 

His truth to triumph through us. 
The prince of darkness grim, — 
We tremble not for him ; 
His rage we can endure, 
For lo ! his doom is sure. 

One little word shall fell him. 



4 That word above all earthly powers. 
No thanks to them, abideth ; 
The Spirit and the gifts are ours 
Through him who with us sideth. 
Let goods and kindred go. 
This mortal life also ; 
The body they may kill : 
God's truth abideth still, 
His kingdom is forever.

To serve the world raised up ;

Beneath the pine or palm. The soul her sacred page ; 

One unseen presence she adores. And feet on mercy's errands swift" 
With silence or with psalm. Do make her pilgrimage.

With bread of life earth's hunger feed.

2 We are of thee, the children of thy love, 

The brothers of thy well-beloved Son ; 
Descend, O Holy Spirit, like a dove, 

Into our hearts that we may be as one, — 
As one with thee, to whom we ever tend, 
As one with him, our Brother and our Friend. 

3 We would be one in hatred of all wrong. 

One in our love of all things sweet and fair, 
One with the joy that breaketh into song. 

One with the grief that trembles into prayer. 
One in the power that makes thy children free 
To follow truth, and thus to follow thee.

(4) O clothe us with thy heavenly armor, Lord, — 
Thy trusty shield, thy sword of love divine : 
Our inspiration be thy constant word ; 

We ask no victories that are not thine : 
Give or withhold, let pain or pleasure be. 
Enough to know that we are serving thee.

^ Hymn of the Church Militant^ 
Lord, thou canst help when earthly armor faileth ; 
Lord, thou canst save when sin itself assaileth ; 
Christ, o'er thy rock nor death nor hell prevaileth : 

Grant us thy peace, Lord, — 

Peace in our hearts, our evil thoughts assuaging, 
Peace in thy Church, where brothers are engaging. 
Peace, when the world its busy war is waging; 
Calm thy foes' raging. 

Grant us thy help till backward they are driven ; 
Grant them thy truth, that they may be forgiven ; 
Grant peace on earth, or, after we have striven. 
Peace in thy heaven.

One holy name she blesses, 

Partakes one holy food.

Thou, Lord, their captain in the well-fought fight ; 

Thou, in the darkness drear, their one true light. Alleluia !

Fight as the saints who nobly fought of old. 

And win with them the victor's crown of gold. Alleluia ! 

4 O blest communion, fellowship divine ! 
We feebly struggle, they in glory shine ; 

Yet all are one in thee, for all are thine. Alleluia ! 

5 And when the strife Is fierce, the warfare long. 
Steals on the ear the distant triumph-song. 

And hearts are brave again, and arms are strong. Alleluia ! 

6 The golden evening brightens in the west ; 
Soon, soon to faithful v/arriors' cometh rest ; 
Sweet is the calm of Paradise the blest. Alleluia ! 

7 But lo ! there breaks a yet more glorious day ; 
The saints triumphant rise in bright array ; 

The King of Glory passes on his way. Alleluia ! 

8 From earth's wide bounds, from ocean's farthest coast, 

Through gates of pearl streams in the countless host. 

Singing to Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, Alleluia !

Both friend and foe in all our strife. 

And preach thee too, as love knows how,

2 Never flinched they from the flame. 

From the torture, never ; 
Vain the foeman's sharpest aim, 

Satan's best endeavor : 
For by faith they saw the land 

Decked in all its glory. 
Where triumphant now they stand 

With the victor's story. 

(3) Faith they had that knew not shame, 
Love that could not languish ; 
And eternal hope o'ercame 
Momentary anguish.

One message they proclaim, 

One growing bond of fellowship,

One widening reign, from age to age, 
Of freedom and of faith.

2 I love thy church, O God ; 4 Beyond my highest joy 
Her walls before thee stand, I prize her heavenly ways. 

Dear as the apple of thine eye, Her sweet communion, solemn vows. 
And graven on thy hand. Her hymns of love and praise. 



3 For her my tears shall fall. 
For her my prayers ascend. 

To her my cares and toils be given 
Till toils and cares shall end.

The brightest glories earth can yield, 

And brighter bliss of heaven.

'Love of the Brethren ' 

1 Blest be the tie that binds 4 When we are called to part 
Our hearts in Christian love; It gives us inward pain. 

The fellowship of kindred minds But we shall still be joined in heart, 

Is like to that above. And hope to meet again. 

2 Before our Father's throne 5 This glorious hope revives 
We pour our ardent prayers ; Our courage by the way. 

Our fears, our hopes, our aims are one. While each in expectation lives. 

Our comforts and our cares. And longs to see the day. 



3 We share each other's woes, 
Each other's burdens bear, 

And often for each other flows 
The sympathizing tear. 



6 From sorrow, toil and pain. 
And sin, we shall be free. 

And perfect love and friendship reign 
Through all eternity.

Dedication of a Church 

Lord, from thine inmost glory send, 3 May erring minds that worship here 
Within these courts to abide, Be taught the better way ; 

The peace that dwelleth without end Andthey who mourn and they who fear, 
Serenely by thy side. Be strengthened as they pray. 

4 May faith grow firm and love grow warm, 
And pure devotion rise, 
While round these hallowed walls the storm 
Of earth-born passion dies.

In heaven are kept their grateful vows. And in the Church a blessing found. 
Their dust endears the sod. That filled their homes again ; 

2 Here holy thoughts a light have shed (5) For faith, and peace, and mighty love. 

From many a radiant face, That from the Godhead flow. 

And prayers of humble virtue made Showed them the life of heaven above 

The perfume of the place. Springs from the life below. 

3 And anxious hearts have pondered here 6 They live with God, their homes are 

The mystery of life. Yet here their children pray, [dust ; 

And prayed the eternal Light to clear And in this fleeting lifetime trust 
Their doubts, and aid their strife. To find the narrow way. 

7 On him who by the altar stands. 
On him thy blessing fall ; 
Speak through his lips thy pure commands. 
Thou Heart, that lovest all.

And from the battle strife, For thee to toil, then wait 

To win in quietude of prayer For harvest days that come at length. 

Abundant life. And ne'er too late.

With thee the silent mind 
In thy great light itself can greet.

No fear ! and see we e'en the grave

Chasten and Cleanse 

3 Not mine the life I thought to live 
When first I took his name ; 
Mine but the right to weep and grieve 
Over my shame. 



2 Not mine the purity of heart 
That shall at last see God ; 
Not mine the following in the steps 
The Saviour trod ; 



4 Yet, Lord, I thank thee for the sight 
Thou hast vouchsafed to me ; 
And, humbled to the dust, I shrink 
Closer to thee. 



5 And if thy love will not disown 
So frail a heart as mine, 
Chasten and cleanse it as thou wilt. 
But keep it thine.

To me, to me, 
As thou didst bless the bread 
By Galilee ;

Then shall all bondage cease, 

All fetters fall, 
And I shall find my peace.

Evermore Give Us This Bread 



I I hunger and I thirst, 
Jesus, my manna be. 
Ye living waters burst 
Out of the rock for me 



2 Thou bruised and broken Bread, 
My life-long wants supply ; 
As living souls are fed, 
O feed me, or I die ! 



3 Thou true life-giving Vine, 
Let me thy sweetness prove. 

Renew my life with thine. 
Refresh my soul with love. 

4 Rough paths my feet have trod 
Since first their course began; 

Feed me, thou Bread of God ; 
Help me, thou Son of Man. 

5 For still the desert lies 

My thirsting soul before; 
O living waters, rise 
Within me evermore !

' Te Do Show Forth the Lord's Death till He Come * 



1 By Christ redeemed, in Christ restored. 
We keep the memory adored. 

And show the death of our dear Lord 
Until he come. 

2 His body broken in our stead 
Is here in this memorial bread. 
And so our feeble love is fed 

Until he come. 

3 His fearful drops of agony, 

His life-blood shed for us we see; 



The wine shall tell the mystery 
Until he come. 

4 And thus that dark betrayal night 
With the last advent we unite, 
By one blest chain of loving rite. 

Until he come. 

5 O blessed hope ! with this elate, 
Let not our hearts be desolate. 
But, strong in faith, in patience wait 

Until he come.

Thou savest those that on thee call ; Where'er our changeful lot is cast ; 

To them that seek thee thou art good, Glad when thy gracious smile we see, 
To them that find thee all in all. Blest when our faith can hold thee fast, 

3 We taste thee, O thou living bread, 5 O Jesus, ever with us stay, [bright ; 

And long to feast upon thee still ; Make all our moments calm and 

We drink of thee, the fountain-head, Chase the dark night of sin away, 
And thirst our souls from thee to fill. Shed o'er the world thy holy light.

Here drink with thee the royal wine of heaven; 
Here would I lay aside each earthly load, 
Here taste afresh the calm of sin forgiven. 

3 This is the hour of banquet and of song. 

This is the heavenly table spread for me ; 
Here let me feast, and, feasting, still prolong 
The brief, bright hour of fellowship with thee. 

4 Too soon we rise ; the symbols disappear ; 

The feast, though not the love is past and gone ; 
The bread and wine remove, but thou art here 
Nearer than ever, still my shield and sun. 

5 I have no help but thine, nor do I need 

Another arm save thine to lean upon : 
It is enough, my Lord, enough indeed ; 

My strength is in thy might, thy might alone. 

6 Feast after feast thus comes, and passes by ; 

Yet, passing, points to the glad feast above. 
Giving sweet foretaste of the festal joy. 

The Lamb's great bridal feast of bliss and love.

Owned the divine enchantment of the hour.

Him our Lord and Master calling, Joy attend us in believing. 

His commands may we revere. Peace from God through endless day.

* Good News for 

2 There's a home for little children, 

Above the bright blue sky, 
Where Jesus reigns in glory, 

A home of peace and joy ; 
No home on earth is like it, 

Nor can with it compare ; 
For every one is happy, 

Nor could be happier there. 

3 There's a song for little children 

Above the bright blue sky, 
A song that will not weary. 
Though sung continually, 



the Little Ones' 

A song which even angels 

Can never, never sing ; 
They know not Christ as Saviour, 

But worship him as King. 

4 There's a crown for little children 
Above the bright blue sky, 
And all who look to Jesus 
Shall wear it by and by. 
All, all above is treasured, 

And found in Christ alone ; 
Lord, grant thy little children 
To know thee as their own.

The all-subduing Word, 

Healer of strife : 
Thou didst thyself abase, 
That from sin's deep disgrace 
Thou mightest save our race. 
And give us life. 

(3) Thou art the great High Priest, 
Thou hast prepared the feast 

Of heavenly love : 
While in our mortal pain. 
None calls on thee in vain ; 
Help thou dost not disdain, 

Help from above.

Sound we thy praises high. 

And joyful sing :

Hush, moaning voice of fear. 

He bids thee cease ; 
With songs sincere and sweet 
Let us arise, and meet 
Him who comes forth to greet 

Our souls with peace. 

2 Rising above thy care, 
Meet him as in the air, 

O weary heart ; 
Put on joy's sacred dress ; 
Lo, as he comes to bless, 
Quite from thy weariness 

Set free thou art ! 



For works of love and praise 
He brings thee summer days, 

Warm days and bright ; 
Winter is past and gone. 
Now he, salvation's Sun, 
Shineth on every one 

With mercy's light. 

From the bright sky above, 
Clad in his robes of love, 

'Tis he, our Lord ! 
Dim earth itself grows clear, 
As his light draweth near : 
O let us hush and hear 

His holy word !

I The Spirit breathes upon the word, 3 The Hand that gave it still supplies 



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. 



The gracious light and heat ; 
His truths upon the nations rise; 
They rise, but never set. 

4 Let everlasting thanks be Thine, 

For such a bright display 

As makes a world of darkness shine 

With beams of heavenly day.

Or to Chenies, 501 

The Word 

2 The Church from her dear Master 

Received the gift divine, 
And still that light she lifteth 

O'er all the earth to shine. 
It is the golden casket, 

Where gems of truth are stored ; 
It is the heaven-drawn picture 

Of Christ, the living Word. 

3 It floateth like a banner 

Before God's host unfurled ; 
It shineth like a beacon 
Above the darkling world : 



r 



of God 

It is the chart and compass 

That o'er life's surging sea, 
'Mid mists and rocks and darkness, 

Still guides, O Christ, to thee. 

O make thy Church, dear Saviour, 

A lamp of purest gold. 
To bear before the nations 

Thy true light, as of old ! 
O teach thy wandering pilgrims 

By this their path to trace. 
Till, clouds and darkness ended. 

They see thee face to face !

A closer bond of union 

In a blest land of love ? 
Shall war be learned no longer ?

While sinners, now confessing, 

The gospel call obey. 
And seek the Saviour's blessing, 

A nation in a day.

Steals into every heart,

Life's poorest, humblest part ;

The simple ways of men, 
And helpest them to render 

Light back to thee agam.

This darkened earth of thine. 
Till everything that's human

Till every tongue and nation,

Which springs from love and thee.

* Psalm Seventy-two ' 



2 He comes with succor speedy 

To those who suffer wrong, 
To help the poor and needy, 

And bid the weaic be strong ; 
To give them songs for sighing. 

Their darkness turn to Hght, 
Whose souls, condemned and dying. 

Were precious in his sight. 



3 He shall come down like showers 

Upon the fruitful earth ; 
And love, joy, hope, like flowers. 

Spring in his path to birth ; 
Before him on the mountains 

Shall peace, the herald, go, 
And righteousness, in fountains. 

From hill to valley flow. 



4 For him shall prayer unceasing 

And daily vows ascend. 

His kingdom still increasing, 

A kingdom without end : 
The tide of time shall never 

His covenant remove. 
His name shall stand for ever, — 
That name to us is Love.

The old grim towers of darkness yield, To groaning nations haste the hour 

And soon shall totter to their fall. Of life and freedom, light and peace ! 

On mountain tops the watch-fires glow. Come, Spirit, make thy wonders known, 
Where scattered wide the watchmen Fulfil the Father's high decree ;

' The Sacramental Host of God* 



2 A holy war those servants wage : 

Mysteriously at strife, 
The powers of heaven and hell engage 

For more than death or life. 
Ye armies of the living God, 

His sacramental host, • 

Where hallowed footsteps never trod 

Take your appointed post. 

3 Tho'fewand smallandwealcyour bands, 

Strong in your Captain's strength 
Go to the conquest of all lands ; 
All must be his at length ; 



Those spoils at his victorious feet 

You shall rejoice to lay. 
And lay yourselves, as trophies meet, 

In his great judgment-day. 

4 O fear not, faint not, halt not now ; 

Quit you like men, be strong ! 
To Christ shall all the nations bow. 

And sing with you this song, — 
' Uplifted are the gates of brass, 

The bars of iron yield ; 
Behold the King of glory pass ; 

The cross hath won the field ! '

2 Behold how many thousands still are lying 

Bound in the darksome prison-house of sin. 
With none to tell them of the Saviour's dying. 
Or of the life he died for them to win ! 

(3)'Tis thine to save from peril of perdition 

The souls for whom the Lord his life laid down ; 
Beware lest, slothful to fulfill thy mission, 

Thou lose one jewel that should deck his crown. 

4 Give of thy sons to bear the message glorious, 

Give of thy wealth to speed them on their way. 
Pour out thy soul for them in prayer victorious ; 
And all thou spendest Jesus will repay. 

5 He comes again : O Zion, ere thou meet him. 

Make known to every heart his saving grace ; 
Let none whom he hath ransomed fail to greet him, 
Through thy neglect, unfit to see his face.

'Dawn of the Latter Day Glory' 

2 Hail to the brightness of Zion's glad morning. 

Long by the prophets of Israel foretold ! 
Hail to the millions from bondage returning ! 
Gentiles and Jews the blest vision behold. 

3 Lo ! in the desert rich flowers are springing, 

Streams ever copious are gliding along, ^ 

Loud from the mountain-tops echoes are ringing, 
Wastes rise in verdure, and mingle in song. 

4 See ! from all lands, from the isles of the ocean. 

Praise to Jehovah ascending on high ; 
Fallen are the engines of war and commotion. 
Shouts of salvation are rending the sky. 

Thomas Hastings, 1831 

^\^ (MISSIONARY CHANT) L. M. 

1 Ye Christian heralds, go proclaim Bid raging winds their fury cease, 
Salvation through Emmanuel's Name ; And hush the tempests into peace. 
To distant climes the tidings bear, ^ ^^j ^y^^^ our labors all are o'er. 
And plant the Rose of Sharon there, ^j^^,^ ^^ ^hall meet to part no more, 

2 God shield you with a wall of fire. Meet with the blood-bought throng to fall, 
With flaming zeal your breasts inspire, And crown our Jesus Lord of all.

2 There shall meet the great and small We shall seek the valleys deep 



In the glad new time, 
Love shall be the lord of all 

In the glad new time ; 
From the mountains shall descend 
Hearts of old that could not bend, 
And the poor shall have a friend 

In the glad new time. 

3 We shall lift oppression's load 
In the glad new time ; 
We shall bear the cross of God 
In the glad new time ; 



Where the weary strive or sleep. 
And convey them up the steep 
To the glad new time. 

4 There shall be a joy in heaven 
In the glad new time ; 
And God's resting shall be given 

In the glad new time : 
For his Sabbath shall be found 
When the skies have touched the ground, 
And the valleys shall resound 
With the glad new time.

Pictured in the legends old : 
Everlasting light shines o'er it. 
Wondrous things of it are told. 

2 Only righteous men and women 

Dwell within its gleaming walls. 
Wrong is banished from its borders. 
Justice reigns through all its halls. 

3 We are builders of that City, 

All our joys and all our groans 
Help to rear its shining ramparts ; 
All our lives are building-stones. 



4 For that City we must labor. 

For its sake bear pain and grief; 
In it find the end of living 
And the anchor of belief. 

5 And the work that we have builded, 

Oft with bleeding hands, and tears, 
Oft in error, oft in anguish. 
Will not perish with our years. 

6 It will last, and shine transfigured. 

In the final reign of right ; 

It will pass into the splendors 

Of the City of the Light.

2 All souls that struggle and aspire. 

All hearts of prayer by thee are lit ; 
And, dim or clear, thy tongues of fire 
On dusky tribes and centuries sit. 



3 Nor bounds, nor clime, nor creed thou 

know'st ; 
Wide as our need thy favors fall ; 
The white wings of the Holy Ghost 
Stoop, unseen, o'er the heads of all. 

4 Shine, Light of God, make broad thy 

scope 

To all who sin and suffer ; more 

And better than we dare to hope 

Make with thy love our longings poor.

HOSMER P. M. ' Battle-Hymn of the Republic ' 

1 Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord : 

He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored 
He hath loosed the fateful lightning of his terrible swift sword ; 
His truth is marching on. 

2 He hath sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat ; 
He is sifting out the hearts of men before his judgment seat : 
O, be swift, my soul, to answer him ! be jubilant, my feet ! 

Our God is marching on. 

3 In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born, across the sea, 
With a glory in his bosom that transfigures you and me : 
As he died to make men holy, let us live to make men free. 

While God is marching on.

The Right is Marching on 

2 ' In this sign we conquer;' 'tis the symbol of our faith, 
Made holy bv the might of love triumphant over death ; 
' He finds his life who loseth it,' forevermore it saith : 

The right is marching on ! 

3 The earth is circling onward out of shadow into light ; 

The stars keep watch above our way, however dark the night •, 
For every martyr's stripe there glows a bar of morning bright ; 
And love is marching on ! 

4 Lead on, O cross of martyr faith, with thee is victory ; 

Shine forth, O stars and reddening dawn, the full day yet shall be ; 
On earth his kingdom cometh, and with joy our eyes shall see. 
Our God is marching on.

2 Our fathers to their graves have gone; 3 So let it be! In God's own might 



Their strife is past, their triumph won; 
But sterner trials wait the race 
Which rises in their honored place, — 
A moral warfare with the crime 
And folly of an evil time. 



We gird us for the coming fight. 
And strong in him whose cause is ours 
In conflict with unholy powers. 
We grasp the weapons he has given, — 
Thelight,and truth, andloveof heaven. 



4 O make us, through the centuries long, 

In peace secure, in justice strong; 

Around our gift of freedom draw 

The safeguards of thy righteous law; 

And, cast in some diviner mold. 

Let the new cycle shame the old!

Jerusalem Above, 

2 No murky cloud o'ershadows thee, 

Nor gloom, nor darksome night ; 
But every soul shines as the sun, 

For God himself gives light. 
There lust and lucre cannot dwell. 

There envy bears no sway ; 
There is no hunger, heat, nor cold. 

But pleasure every way. 

3 T^hy gardens and thy gallant walks 

Continually are green ; [flowers 
There grow such sweet and pleasant 
As nowhere else are seen : 



Mother of Us All 

Quite thro' the streets, withsllver sound. 

The flood of life doth flow, 
Upon whose banks on every side 

The wood of life doth grow. 

4 There trees for evermore bear fruit, 
And evermore do spring; 
There evermore the angels sit. 

And evermore do sing. 
Jerusalem, my happy home. 

Would God I were in thee I 
Would God my woes were at an end. 
Thy joys that I might see !

Thine is the victor's laurel, 

And thine the golden dower.

Shall I e'er see thy face ? 
O sweet and blessed country. 
Shall I e'er win thy grace ? 
Exult, O dust and ashes.

Thine ageless walls are bonded 

With amethyst unpriced ; 
Thy saints build up its fabric. 

The corner-stone is Christ : 
The cross is all thy splendour, 

The Crucified thy praise; 
His laud and benediction 

Thy ransomed people raise. 

Thou hast no shore, fair ocean ; 

Thou hast no time, bright day ; 
Dear fountain of refreshment 

To pilgrims far away !

No more their weary course they run, Safe landed on that bHssful shore, 

No more they faint, no more they fall, No stormy tempests now they dread, 

No foes oppress, no fears appall : No roaring billows lift their head : 

O happy saints, forever blest, O happy saints, forever blest 

In that dear home how sweet your rest ! In that calm haven of your rest ! 

4 O God of saints, to thee we cry ; 
O Saviour, plead for us on high ; 
O Holy Ghost, our Guide and Friend, 
Grant us thy grace till life shall end, 
That with all saints our rest may be 
In that bright Paradise with thee.

* Examples of Christ and the Saints ' 

2 Once they were mourning here below, 4 They marked the footsteps that he trod, 

And wet their couch with tears ; His zeal inspired their breast ; 

They wrestled hard, as we do now, And, following their incarnate God, 

With sins, and doubts, and fears. Possess the promised rest. 

3 I ask them whence their victory came ; 5 Our glorious Leader claims our praise 

They, with united breath. For his own pattern given. 

Ascribe their conquest to the Lamb, While the long cloud of witnesses 
Their triumph to his death. Show the same path to heaven. 

Isaac Watts, 1709

( ARLINGTON ) C. M. 

The Land of Pure "Delight 



1 There is a land of pure delight, 

Where saints immortal reign ; 
Infinite day excludes the night. 
And pleasures banish pain. 

2 There everlasting spring abides, 

And never-withering flowers ; 
Death, like a narrow sea, divides 
This heavenly land from ours. 



4 But timorous mortals start and shrink 

To cross this narrow sea ; 
And linger, shivering, on the brink. 
And fear to launch away. 

5 O could we make our doubts remove. 

Those gloomy doubts that rise. 
And see the Canaan that we love 
With unbeclouded eyes ; 



3 Sweet fields beyond the swelling flood 6 Could we butclimbwhere Mosesstood, 

Stand dressed in living green ; And view the landscape o'er, [flood. 

So to the Jews old Canaan stood. Not Jordan's stream, nor death's cold 

While Jordan rolled between. Should fright us from the shore.

2 Far, far away, like bells at evening pealing, 

The voice of Jesus sounds o'er land and sea. 
And laden souls by thousands meekly stealing. 
Kind Shepherd, turn their weary steps to thee. 

3 Onward we go, for still we hear them singing, 

' Come, weary souls, for Jesus bids you come ;' 
And through the dark, its echoes sweetly ringing. 
The music of the gospel leads us home. 

4 Rest comes at length; though life be long and dreary. 

The day must dawn, and darksome night be passed ; 
All journeys end in welcomes to the weary. 

And heaven, the heart's true home, will come at last. 

5 Angels, sing on, your faithful watches keeping: 

Sing us sweet fragments of the songs above : 
Till morning's joy shall end the night of weeping. 
And life's long shadows break in cloudless love.

2 O Christ, he is the fountain, 3 

The deep, sweet well of love ! 
The streams on earth I've tasted. 

More deep I'll drink above. 
There to an ocean fulness 
His mercy doth expand, 
And glory, glory dwelleth

Land' 

With mercy and with judgment 

My web of time he wove. 
And aye the dews of sorrow 

Were lustered with his love : 
I'll bless the hand that guided, 

I'll bless the heart that planned, 

When throned where glory dwelleth 

In Emmanuel's land.

'At Last' 

2 Thou who hast made my home of life so pleasant, 

Leave not its tenant when its walls decay, 

Love divine, O Helper ever present. 

Be thou my strength and stay ! 

3 I have but thee, my Father, let thy Spirit 

Be with me then to comfort and uphold : 
No gate of pearl, no branch of palm I merit, 
Nor street of shining gold. 

4 Suffice it if — my good and ill unreckoned, 

And both forgiven through thy abounding grace — 

1 find myself by hands familiar beckoned 

Unto my fitting place, — 

5 Some humble door among thy many mansions. 

Some sheltering shade where sin and striving cease. 
And flows forever through heaven's green expansions 
The river of thy peace. 

6 There, from the music round about me stealing, 

I fain would learn the new and holy song. 
And find at last, beneath thy trees of healing. 
The life for which I long.

Travelling Home 



2 We are travelling home to God 
In the way the fathers trod ; 
They are happy now, and we 
Soon their happiness shall see. 

3 Lift your eyes, ye sons of light, 
Zion's city is in sight ; 

There our endless home shall be. 
There our Lord we soon shall see. 



573 BASFORD 7. 6. D. 

He Turneth the Shadow 

1 Around my path life's mysteries 

Their deepening shadows throw ; 
And, as 1 gaze and ponder, 

They dark, and darker grow ; 
Yet, still amid the darkness, 

I feel the light is near. 
And in the awful silence, 

God's voice I seem to hear. 

2 Thy voice I hear above me. 

Which says, 'Wait, trust, and pray, 
The night will soon be over. 
And light will come with day.' 



4 Fear not, brethren ; joyful stand 
On the borders of your land ; 
Jesus Christ, your Father's Son, 
Bids you undismayed go on. 

5 Lord, obediently we go. 
Gladly leaving all below ; 
Only thou our leader be. 
And we still will follow thee. 

John Cknnick, 1742 



of Death into Morning 

Amen ! the light and darkness 
Are both alike to thee : 

Then to thy waiting servant, 
Alike they both shall be. 

3 That great unending future, 

I cannot pierce its shroud. 
But nothing doubt nor tremble j 

God's bow is on the cloud : 
To him I yield my spirit, 

On him I lay my load ; 
Fear ends with death ; beyond it 

I nothing see but God.

2 Rivers to the ocean run, 

Nor stay in all their course ; 
Fire ascending seeks the sun ; 

Both speed them to their source 
So my soul, derived from God, 
Pants to view his glorious face, 
Forward tends to his abode. 
To rest in his embrace. 



3 Cease, ye pilgrims, cease to mourn. 
Press onward to the prize ; 
Soon our Saviour will return 
Triumphant in the skies : 
Yet a season, and you know 
Happy entrance will be given. 
All our sorrows left below, 
And earth exchanged for heaven.

Of autumn's gold and brown. 

Of waving fields, and ruddy fruit 

The branches weighing down.:

That better is than play; 



Of simple cares, and love that grows 
More sweet from day to day : 

Another year to follow hard 
Where better souls have trod. 

Another year of life's delight, — 
Another year of God !

Asking a springtide blessing at thy hand, 
Plants of thy planting, praying thee to give 
Water of life that we may grow and live.

Wakening our wintry hearts to life again. 
Bidding each soul like a fair garden bloom 

In faith and works, and love's most sweet perfume.

And bud and flower in ordered season blow, 
Till, when the autumn crowns our blissful days, 
Our fruit be found abounding to thy praise.

Blessings of Sunshine and Shower 



1 A gladsome song of praise we sing. 

And thankfully we gather. 
To bless the love of God above, 

Our everlasting Father. 
In him rejoice with heart and voice. 

Whose glory fadeth never. 
Whose providence is our defence. 

Who lives and loves forever. 

2 From shades of night he calls the light. 

And from the sod the flower; 
And every cloud his blessings break 
In sunshine or in shower : 



For nothing falls unknown to him. 
Or care, or joy, or sorrow. 

And he whose mercy ruled the past 
Will be our stay to-morrow. 

3 Then praise the Lord with one accord. 
To his great name give glory, 
And of his never-changing love 

Repeat the wondrous story. 
In him rejoice with heart and voice. 

Whose glory fadeth never. 
Whose providence is our defence, 
Who lives and loves forever.

For fruits of the garden and field, 
For gold which the mine and the furrow 
To delver and husbandman yield. 

3 And thanks for the harvest of beauty, 

P or that which the hands cannot hold, 
The harvest eyes only can gather. 
And only our hearts can enfold : 

4 We reap it on mountain and moorland. 

We glean it from meadow and lea. 
We garner it in from the cloudland. 
We bind it in sheaves from the sea. 

5 But now we sing deeper and higher. 

Of harvests that eye cannot see j 
They ripen on mountains of duty, 
Are reaped by the brave and the free. 

6 O thou who art Lord of the harvest. 

The Giver who gladdens our days. 
Our hearts are forever repeating. 

Thanksgiving, and honor, and praise !

2 He only is the Maker 

Of all things near and far ; 
He paints the wayside flower, 

He lights the evening star ; 
The winds and waves obey him ; 

By him the birds are fed ; 
Much more to us, his children, 

He gives our daily bread. 



3 We thank thee, then, O Father, 
For all things bright and good, 

The seedtime and the harvest. 
Our life, our health, our food : 

No gifts have we to offer 
For all thy love imparts, 

But that which thou desirest. 

Our humble, thankful hearts.

The Song of 
All the world is God's own field, 
Fruit unto his praise to yield ; 
Wheat and tares together sown, 
Unto joy or sorrow grown : 
First the blade, and then the ear. 
Then the full corn shall appear : 
Lord of harvest, grant that we 
Wholesome grain and pure may be. 

For the Lord our God shall come. 
And shall take his harvest home ; 
From his field shall in that day 
All ofFences purge away ; 



Harvest Home 



Give his angels charge at last 
In the fire the tares to cast, 
But the fruitful ears to store 
In his garner evermore. 

Even so. Lord, quickly come 
To thy final harvest-home ; 
Gather thou thy people in, 
Free from sorrow, free from sin ; 
There for ever purified. 
In thy presence to abide : 
Come, with all thine angels, come, 
Raise the glorious harvest-home !

* Hymn of Winter ' 

2 And yet God's love is not withdrawn ; 3 And tho' abroad the sharp winds blow. 
His life within the keen air breathes, And skies are chill, and frosts are keen. 

His beauty paints the crimson dawn. Home closer draws her circle now. 
And clothes the boughs with glittering And warmer glows her light within, 
wreaths. 

4 O God, who givest the winter's cold. 

As well as summer's joyous rays, 

Us warmly in thy love enfold, 

And keep us through life's wintry days ! 

Samuel Longfellow, 1859

Hearts, bow down, and voices, sing ! 
Praises to the Glorious One, 

All his year of wonder done ! 
Praise him for his budding green, 
April's resurrection-scene ; 
Praise him for his shining hours. 
Starring all the land with flowers ! 

2 Praise him for his summer rain. 
Feeding day and night the grain ; 
Praise him for his tiny seed. 
Holding all his world shall need ;

Praise him for his garden root.

Falling soft on nature's breast ; 
Praise for happy dreams of birth, 
Brooding in the quiet earth ! 
For his year of wonder done, 
Praise to the All-glorious One ! 
Hearts, bow down, and voices, sing 
Praise, and love, and thanksgiving !

While we in thy house appear : 
Here afFord us, Lord, a taste 
Of our everlasting feast. 

4 May thy gospel's joyful sound 

Conquer sinners, comfort saints ; 
May the fruits of grace abound. 

Bring relief for all complaints : 
Thus may all our Sabbaths prove 
Till we join the Church above. 

John Newton, 1774 



2 While we pray for pardoning grace. 

Through the dear Redeemer's name. 
Show thy reconciled face ; 

Take away our sin and shame ; 
From our worldly cares set free. 
May we rest this day in thee. 

3 Here we come thy name to praise. 

Let us feel thy presence near ; 
May thy glory meet our eyes.

Light, Rest, Peace and Prayer 



1 This is the day of light : 
Let there be light to-day ; 

O Day-spring, rise upon our night. 
And chase its gloom away. 

2 This is the day of rest : 
Our failing strength renew ; 

On weary brain and troubled breast 
Shed thou thy freshening dew. 

3 This is the day of peace : 
Thy peace our spirits fill ; 



Bid thou the blasts of discord cease, 
The waves of strife be still. 

4 This is the day of plrayer : 
Let earth to heaven draw near ; 

Lift up our hearts to seek thee there ; 
Come down to meet us here. 

(5) This is the first of days : 

Send forth thy quickening breath. 
And wake dead souls to love and praise, 
O Vanquisher of death !

Where gospel light is glowing 

With pure and radiant beams. 
And living water flowing 

With soul-refreshine streams.

Mercies New Every Morning 



2 Still the greatness of thy love, 
Daily doth our sins remove, 
Daily, far as east from west. 
Lifts the burden from the breast, 
Gives unbought, to those who pray. 
Strength to stand in evil day. 



3 Let our prayers each morn prevail, 
That these gifts may never fail ; 
And, as we confess the sin 
And the tempter's power within. 
Every morning, for the strife. 
Feed us with the bread of life.

2 Fount of all our joy and peace, 

To thy living waters lead me ; 
Thou from earth my soul release, 

And with grace and mercy feed me ; 
Bless thy word, that it may prove 
Rich in fruits that thou dost love. 

3 Kindle thou the sacrifice 

That upon my lips is lying : 
Clear the shadows from my eyes, 

That from every error flying, 
No strange fire may in me glow 
That thine altar doth not know. 



4 Let me with my heart to-day, 

Holy, holy, holy ! singing. 
Rapt awhile from earth away, 

All my soul to thee upspringing, 
Have a foretaste inly given 
How they worship thee in heaven. 

5 Hence all care, all vanity, 

For the day to God is holy ; 
Come, thou glorious Majesty, 

Deign to fill this temple lowly; 
Naught to-day my soul shall move, 
Simply resting in thy love.

When hill and dale in thickest darkness lay. 
Awoke bright rays across the dim earth stealing, 
And bade the even and morn complete the day. 

3 Look from the tower of heaven, and send to cheer us 

Thy light and truth, to guide us onward still ; 
Still let thy mercy, as of old, be near us, 
And lead us safely to thy holy hill. 

4 So, when that morn of endless light is waking. 

And shades of evil from its splendors flee. 
Safe may we rise, the earth's dark breast forsaking.

Restored to life,and power, and thought. Shall dawn on every cross and care. 

New mercies, each returning day, 
Hover around us while we pray, — 
New perils past, new sins forgiven. 
New thoughts of God, new hopes of 
heaven. 

6 



5 The trivial round, the common task, 
Will furnish all we ought to ask, — 
Room to deny ourselves, a road 
To bring us daily nearer God. 



If on our daily course our mind 
Be set to hallow all we find. 
New treasures still, of countless price, 
God will provide for sacrifice. 



Only, O Lord, in thy dear love, 
Fit us for perfect rest above. 
And help us, this and every day, 
To live more nearly as we pray.

And ever, as the day is born, Some silent deed of love abroad. 

On wings of love my soul would flee, That greatening as it journeys past 
And thank thee for another morn, — May do some earnest work for God, —

To tax anew my growing strength, 
To arm my soul with faith and prayer,

2 Sing a new song at morn ; 4 Cast every weight aside ; 

Join the glad woods and hills ; Do battle with each sin ; 

Join the fresh winds and seas and plains ; Fight with the faithless world without, 

Join the bright flowers and rills. The faithless heart within. 



3 Awake, cold lips, and sing; 

Arise, dull heart, and pray ; 
Lift up, O man, thy heart and eyes ; 

Brush slothfulness away. 



5 Look up beyond these clouds : 

Thither thy pathway lies ; 
Mount up, away, and linger not : 

Thy goal is yonder skies,

Early Morning Hymn 



1 Sweetly the holy hymn 
Breaks on the morning air. 

Before the world with smoke is dim 
We meet to offer prayer. 

2 While flowers are wet with dews. 
Dew of our souls descend ; 

Ere yet the sun the day renews, 
O Lord, thy Spirit send. 



3 Upon the battle-field. 
Before the fight begins. 

We seek, O Lord, thy sheltering shield, 
To guard us from our sins. 

4 On the lone mountain side, 
Before the morning's light, 

The Man of sorrows wept and cried. 
And rose refreshed with might. 



5 O, hear us, then, for we 

Are very weak and frail. 
We make the Saviour's name our plea, 

And surely must prevail.

Let thy bright beams, all shades dispelling, 
Around us and within us shine. 

3 The heavenly hosts fall down before thee. 

And, Holy ! cry, nor ever rest ; 
The saints on earth, with them, adore thee, 
Creator, Saviour, Spirit blest. 

4 O God, if we could duly praise thee. 

Could we but voice the love we see, 
As sweet a song as angels raise thee. 
Our Sabbath morning hymn should be. 

5 Accept, O Father, we entreat thee. 

The worship which thy children bring ; 
O grant us grace in heaven to greet thee. 
And with all saints thy love to sing.

Earth's Girdle of Praise 

2 We thank thee that thy Church unsleeping, 

While earth rolls onward into light, 
Through all the world her watch is keeping, 
And rests not now by day or night. 

3 As o'er each continent and island 

The dawn leads on another day, 
The voice of prayer is never silent, 
Nor dies the strain of praise away. 

4 The sun, that bids us rest, is waking 

Our brethren 'neath the western sky, 

And hour by hour fresh lips are making 

Thy wondrous doings heard on high. 

5 So be it, Lord ; thy throne shall never. 

Like earth's proud empires, pass away; 
But stand, and rule, and grow, for ever. 
Till all thy creatures own thy sway.

2 Forgive me, Lord, for thy dear Son, 4 O may my soul on thee repose, 
The ill that I this day have done, And with sweet sleep mine eyelids close. 

That with the world, myself, and thee. Sleep that may me more vigorous make 
I, ere I sleep, at peace may be. To serve my God when I awake. 



3 When in the night I sleepless lie. 
My soul with heavenly tho'ts supply. 
Let no ill dreams disturb my rest. 
No powers of darkness me molest. 



5 Praise God from whom all blessings flow ; 

Praise him, all creatures here below; 

Praise him above, ye heavenly host : 

Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

In Thy Mercy Heal Us All 



I At even, ere the sun was set, 4 

The sick, O Lord, around thee lay; 
O, in what divers pains they met I 
O, with what joy they went away I 



And none, O Lord, have perfect rest. 
For none are wholly free from sin ; 

And they who fain would serve thee best 
Are conscious most of wrong within. 



2 Once more 'tis eventide, and we, 5 O Saviour Christ, thou too art man ; 

Oppressed with various ills, draw Thou hast been troubled, tempted, tried; 

near : Thy kind but searching glance can scan 

What if thy form we cannot see ? The very wounds that shame would 

We know and feel that thou art here. hide. 

3 O Saviour Christ, our woes dispel ; 6 Thy touch has still its ancient power, 

For some are sick, and some are sad. No word from thee can fruitless fall; 

And some have never loved thee well. Hear, in this solemn evening hour. 
And some have lost the love they had. And in thy mercy heal us all.

Heart of Love, enfolding all, 
Through the glory and the grace 
Of the stars that veil thy face 
Our hearts ascend. 



By jjeriuission of J. H. Vincent

2 Lord of life, beneath the dome 

Of the universe, thy home. 

Gather us who seek thy face 

To the fold of thy embrace. 

For thou art nigh.

Pass the stars, the day, the night,

Let eternal morning rise, 
And shadows end.

So let my soul, in life's last even. 
Retire to glorious rest.

Copyright, 1898. by Oliver Ditson Company 



2 As Christ upon the cross, 

His head inclined, 
And to his Father's arms 
His parting soul resigned, 
So now herself my soul 

Would wholly give 
Into his sacred charge 
In whom all spirits live ; 

3 So now beneath his eye 

Would calmly rest, 
Without a wish or thought 
Abiding in the breast. 



Evening Sacrifice 



V 



Save that his will be done 

Whate'er betide, — 
Dead to herself, and dead 
In him to all beside. 

Thus would I live ; yet now 

Not I, but he 
In all his power and love 

Henceforth alive in me, 
One sacred Trinity, 

One Lord divine; 
Myself for ever his. 

And he for ever mine ! 



Latin, 1805. Tr. Edward Caswall, 1858 

63 1 ( CYPRUS ) 7s. He Giveth His Beloved Sleep 

2 All the night from dream to dream, 4 But if trouble in my heart. 

Keep my spirit pure and bright. Or fierce pain mc restless keep. 

Fill the darkness with the stream Then to me thy peace impart. 



Of thine everlasting light. 

3 If I waken, calm and fair 

Be the thoughts that in me rise. 
And thy presence in the air 
Make my heart a paradise. 



Give me, thy beloved, sleep. 

5 So, when morning with his wing 
Wakens me to work and play, 
I may rise with joy and sing, 

*• God has turned my night to day.*

Evening Brings Us Home 

2 We have been wounded by the hunter's darts, 
Our eyes are very heavy, and our hearts 
Search for thy coming, when the light departs ; 

At evening bring us home. 

3 The darkness gathers ; through the gloom no star 
Rises to guide us ; we have wandered far ; 
Without thy lamp we know not where we are ; 

At evening bring us home. 

4 We fare bewildered through the falling snow ; 
O thou dear Shepherd, leave us not to go 
Without thy heartening voice, thy guiding glow ; 

At evening bring us home.

1 The day is ended. Ere I sink to sleep 
My weary spirit seeks repose in thine ; 
Father, forgive my trespasses, and keep 

This little life of mine. 

2 With lovingkindness curtain thou my bed. 
And cool in rest my burning pilgrim feet, 
Thy pardon be the pillow for my head ; 

So shall my rest be sweet. 

3 At peace with all the world, dear Lord, and thee. 
No fears my soul's unwavering faith can shake ; 
All's well, whichever side the grave for me 

The morning light may break.

Our many hopes and fears. 
Our heavy weight of mortal toil. 
Our bitterness of tears. 

3 We pray thee for all absent friends. 
Who have been with us here ; 
And in our secret heart we name 
The distant and the dear. 



And feet that from thee rove. 
The sick, the poor, the tried, the fallen. 
We pray thee, God of love.

And at thy footstool lay ; 
And, Father, thou who lovest all 
Wilt hear us when we pray.

God Knows 



I The twilight falls, the night is near ; 4 Thou knowest all : we lean our head. 



Our wearied eyelids close. 
Content and glad awhile to tread 
The way our Father knows. 

5 And thou hast loved us ! all our heart 
With answering love is stirred ; 
And poverty and toil and smart, 
Find healing in that word. 

3 Yes, all, — the morning and the night, 6 And so we lay us down to rest. 
The joy, the grief, the loss. As nightly shadows fall ; 

The mountain track, the valley bright. And lean, confiding, on his breast 
The daily thorn and cross. Who knows and pities all. 

c. 1831 



We put our work away. 
And kneel to him who bends to hear 
The story of the day. 

2 The common story ; yet we kneel 
To tell it at thy call. 
And cares grow lighter when we feel 
Our Father knows them all.

Darkness and Light are Both Alike to Thee 

2 Thou who in darkness walking didst appear 
Upon the waves, and thy disciples cheer, 

Come, Lord, in lonesome days, when storms assail. 
And earthly hopes and human succors fail ; 
When all is dark, may we behold thee nigh, 
And hear thy voice, ' Fear not, for it is I ! ' 

3 Our changeful lives are ebbing to an end ; 
Onward to darkness and to death we tend ; 

O Conqueror of the grave, be thou our Guide, 
Be thou our Light in death's dark eventide ; 
Then in our mortal hour will be no gloom. 
No sting in death, no terror in the tomb.

All times are ordered in thy word alone. 
Therefore the day and night thy glories own.

Lighten Our Darkness^ O Lord 

2 Hushed are the sheep-bells afar on the moorland, 

O'er the still meadows the night breezes sweep. 
Faint fall the footsteps in city and hamlet, 
Safely the children are folded in sleep. 

3 Softly may weary ones rest from their duty, 

Bright be the dreams of the troubled and worn, 
While through the shade beam the stars in their beauty. 
Watching the world till the breaking of morn. 

4 Lord of the night, let thine angels defend us ; 

Sunshine and gloom are alike unto thee : 
Lord of the day, let thy Spirit attend us, 
Bless us and keep us wherever we be.

6 A little while, and then 
Shall come the glorious end ; 

And songs of angels and of men 
In perfect praise shall blend.

SCHUMANN S. M. Still with Thee 



1 Still with thee, O my God, 
I would desire to be ; 

By day, by night, at home, abroad, 
I would be still with thee. 

2 With thee when dawn comes in 
And calls me back to care. 

Each day returning to begin 

With thee, my God, in prayer. 

3 With thee amid the crowd 
That throngs the busy mart. 

To hear thy voice, where time's is loud. 
Speak softly to my heart. 



4 With thee when day is done. 
And evening calms the mind; 

The setting as the rising sun 

With thee my heart would find. 

5 With thee when darkness brings 
The signal of repose. 

Calm in the shadow of thy wings. 
Mine eyelids I would close. 

6 With thee, in thee, by faith 
Abiding, I would be ; 

By day, by night, in life, in death, 
I would be still with thee.

Pari in Peace 



1 Part in peace : is day before us ? 

Praise his name for life and light ; 
Are the shadows lengthening o'er us ? 
Bless his care who guards the night. 

2 Part in peace : with deep thanksgiving, 

Rendering, as we homeward tread. 
Gracious service to the living. 
Tranquil memory to the dead. 



3 Part in peace : such are the praises 

God, our Maker, loveth best ; 
Such the worship that upraises 
Human hearts to heavenly rest. 

4 Part in peace : our duties call us ; 

We must serve as well as praise ; 
Ask not what may here befall us ; 
Leave to God the coming days.

2 Grant us thy peace upon our homeward way : 
With thee began, with thee shall end the day ; 
Guard thou the lips from sin, the hearts from shame, 
That in this house have called upon thy name. 

3 Grant us thy peace, Lord, through the coming night ; 
Turn thou for us its darkness into light ; 

From harm and danger keep thy children free, 
For dark and light are both alike to thee. 

4 Grant us thy peace throughout our earthly life, 

Our balm in sorrow, and our stay in strife; 

Then, when thy voice shall bid our conflict cease. 

Call us, O Lord, to thine eternal peace,

Bless Us Ere We Go 

2 The day is done, its hours have run ; 4 Do more than pardon ; give us joy, 

And thou hast taken count of all, — Sweet fear, and sober Hberty, 

The scanty triumphs grace hath won. And loving hearts without alloy. 

The broken vow, the frequent fall : That only long to be like thee : 

Through life's long day and death's Through life's long day and death's 

dark night, dark night, 

O gentle Jesus, be our Light ! O gentle Jesus, be our Light ! 

3 Grant us, dear Lord, from evil ways 5 For all we love, the poor, the sad, 

True absolution and release ; The sinful, unto thee we call ; 

And bless us, more than in past days, O let thy mercy make us glad ; 

With purity and inward peace : Thou art our Jesus and our All : 

Through life's long day and death's Through life's long day and death's 

dark night, dark night, 

O gentle Jesus, be our Light ! O gentle Jesus, be our Light !

words to the first tone of the music, rapidly, with marked pause on italicised words; the 
second, or Rhythmic, in strict time like an allegro in 2-2 tempo. Prolong through the half 
measure a syllable followed by dash. A dot marks the center of the measure and guides to 
the accent. 

Sing the first line of the words to the first, the second, to the second half of the music. 
Use two lines of words to each singing of the music of a single chant, four lines in case of a 
double chant.

Who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain; 

Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters ; 
Who maketh the clouds his chariot; 
Who walketh upon the wings of the wind; 

Who maketh winds his messengers,

Who laid the foundations of the earth,

Thou coverest it with the deep as with a vesture ; 

The waters stood above the mountains. 
At thy rebuke they fled ; 

At the voice of thy thunder they hasted away — 
The mountains rose, the valleys sank down — 

Unto the place which thou hadst founded for them. 
Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over; 

That they turn not again to cover the earth. 

He sendeth forth springs into the valleys: 

They run among the mountains ; 
They give drink to every beast of the field; 
The wild asses quench their thirst. 

By them the birds of the heaven have their habitation; 

They sing among the branches. 
He watereth the mountains from his chambers: 

The earth hath its fill from the fruit of thy works. 

He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, 

And herb for the service of man; 
That he may bring forth food out of the earth, 
And wine to make glad the heart of man, 

Oil to make his face to shine. And bread to strengthen man's heart. 
The trees of the Lord have their fill, 
The cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted; 

Where the birds make their nests : 

As for the stork, the fix-trees are her house.

Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; 
Who healeth all thy diseases ;

Nor rewarded us after our iniquities. 
For as the heaven is high above the earth. 
So great is his lovingkindness toward them that fear him. 

As far as the east is from the west. 

So far hath he removed our transgressions from us. 
Like as a father pitieth his children. 
So the Lord pitieth them that fear him. 

For he knoweth our frame ;

As for man, his days are as grass; 

As a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.

And to those that remember his precepts to do them.

Behold, thou hast made my days as hand-breadths; 

And my lifetime is as nothing before thee.

The Starry Heavens and the Moral Law 

Psalm 19 

THE heavens declare the glory of God; 
And the firmament showeth his handiwork. 
Day unto day uttereth speech, 

And night unto night showeth knowledge. 
There is no speech nor language; 

Their voice is not heard. 
Their line is gone out through all the earth, 

And their words to the end of the world. 
In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun, 

Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, 
And rejoiceth as a strong man to run his course. 

His going forth is from the end of the heavens, 
And his circuit unto the ends of it; 

And there is nothing hid from the heat thereof. 

The law of the Lord is perfect, restoring the soul : 

The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. 
The precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: 

The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes. 
The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: 

The ordinances of the Lord are true, and righteous altogether. 
More to be desired are they than gold, 
Yea, than much fine gold; 

Sweeter also than honey 

And the droppings of the honeycomb. 
Moreover by them is thy servant warned: 

In keeping them there is great reward. 
Who can discern his errors? 

Clear thou me from hidden faults. 
Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; 
Let them not have dominion over me: 

Then shall I be upright, 

And I shall be clear from great transgressions. 
Let the words of my mouth, 
And the meditation of my heart 
Be acceptable in thy sight, 
O Lord, my rock, and my redeemer.

And see if there be any wicked way in me. 
And lead me in the way everlasting.

Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. 
Make me to hear joy and gladness. 
That the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice. 

Hide thy face from my sins, 

And blot out aU mine iniquities. 

Create in me a clean heart, O God; 
And renew a right spirit within me. 

Cast me not away from thy presence ; 

And take not thy holy Spirit from me. 

Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; 
And uphold me with a willing spirit. 

Then will I teach transgressors thy ways ; 

And sinners shall be converted unto thee.

Marvellous things did he in the sight of their fathers. 
When the\- were but a few in number, 

Yea, very few, and sojourners in the land. 
And they went about from nation to nation, 

From one kingdom to another people. 
He suffered no man to oppress them; 
Yea, for their sakes he reproved kings. 

Saying, Touch not mine anointed, 

And do my prophets no harm. 
He led forth his own people like sheep, 
And guided them in the wilderness like a flock. 

He led them safely, so that they were not afraid ; 
He clave the sea, and caused them to pass through; 

He clave rocks in the wilderness. 

And gave them drink abundantly as out of the deeps. 
And he brought them unto his holy border. 

To this mountain land, which his right hand had gotten. 
For not by their own sword did they win the land. 

Neither did their own arm save them; 
But thy right hand, and thine arm, and the light of thy countenance, 

Because thou hadst pleasure in them. 
And he increased his people greatly. 

And made them stronger than their adversaries ; 
And, being compassionate, he forgave their iniquity; 

He remembered that they were but flesh, 

A breath that passeth and cometh not again. 
So, like a shepherd, he tended them in the integrity of his heart. 

And guided them by the skilfulness of his hands.

■■■ -■• And he that hath no money, come ye, buy and eat; 

Yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. 
Wherefore do ye spend your money for that which is not bread, 

And your labor for that which satisfieth not? 
Hearken diligently unto me and eat ye that which is good. 

And let your soul delight itself in fatness. 
Incline your ear, and come unto me: 
Hear, and your soul shall live: 

And I will make an everlasting covenant with you, 

Even the sure mercies of David. 

Seek ye the Lord while he may be found; 
Call ye upon him while he is near: 

Let the wicked forsake his way. 

And the unrighteous man his thoughts; 
And let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; 

And to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. 
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, 
Neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. 

For as the heavens are higher than the earth, 

So are my ways higher than your ways, 

And my thoughts than your thoughts. 

For as the rain cometh down and the snow from heaven. 
And returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, 

And maketh it bring forth and bud. 

And give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, — 
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth; 
It shall not return unto me void, 

But it shall accomplish that which I please. 

And it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. 

For ye shall go out with joy and be led forth with peace: 

The mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, 

And all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. 
Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree. 
And instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree; 

And it shall be to the Lord for a name, 

For an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.

Comfort from God 

Isaiah 40 

COMFORT ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God; 
Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem and cry unto her, 
That her warfare is accomphshed, that her iniquity is pardoned, 
That she hath received of the Lord's hand double for all her sins. 

Hark! the voice of one crying, 

Prepare ye in the wilderness the way of the Lord; 

Make level in the desert a highway for our God. 
Every valley shall be exalted. 
And every mountain and hill be made low; 

And the uneven shall be made level, 

And the rough places a plain : 
And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, 
And all flesh shall see it together; 

For the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it. 

Hark! the voice of one saying, Cry. 

And 1 answered, What shall I cry? 

All flesh is grass, 

And all the goodliness thereof like the flower of the field. 
The grass withereth, the flower fadeth, 
Because the breath of the Lord bloweth upon it. 

The grass withereth, the flower fadeth, 

But the word of our God shall stand for ever. 

O thou that tellest good tidings to Zion, 
Get thee up on a high mountain; 

O thou that tellest good tidings to Jerusalem, 
Lift up thy voice with strength ; 
Lift it up, fear not; say unto the cities of Judah, — 
Behold your God ! 

Behold, the Lord God cometh as a mighty one. 
And his arm ruleth for him. 

Behold, his reward is with him. 
And his recompense before him. 
He will feed his flock like a shepherd, 
He will gather the lambs in his arm. 
And carry them in his bosom, 
And gently lead those that are with their young.

The Unchanging and Unwearied God 

Isaiah 40 

WI \0 hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, 
And meted out heaven with the span, 
And comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, 

And weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance? 
Who hath directed the spirit of the Lord, 

Or being his counsellor, hath given him knowledge? 
With whom hath he taken counsel, That he might obtain insight. 

And be taught the way of right, 

And be shown the way of understanding? 
It is he that bringeth princes to nothing; 

That maketh the judges of the earth as vanity. 
Scarcely have they been planted, scarcely have they been sown, 

When he bloweth upon them, and they wither, 

And as stubble the whirlwind carrieth them away. 
Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, 
And as fme dust of the balance are they reckoned: 

Behold, he taketh up the isles as a very little thing. 

Do ye not perceive? Do ye not hear? 

Hath it not been told you from the beginning? 

It is he that sitteth above the vault of the earth. 

So that the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers ; 
That hath stretched out the heavens as a firmament, 

And spread them out as a tent to dwell in. 
Lift up your eyes on high, and see who hath created these. 
That bringeth out their host by number, and calleth them all by name. 

By the greatness of his might, and for that he is strong in power, 

Not one of them is lacking. 

Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest, O Israel, 

My way is hidden from the Lord, 

And my right is passed over of my God? 
Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard? 

An everlasting God is the Lord, 

The Creator of the ends of the earth. 
He fainteth not, neither is weary; 

There is no searching of his understanding. 
He giveth power to the faint. 

And to him that hath no might he increaseth strength.

Loose thyself from the bonds of thy neck, O captive daughter of Zion.

Behold, his reward is with him.

The Suffering Servant of the Lord 

Isaiah 52 

BEHOLD, my Servant shall deal wisely and prosper; 
He shall rise, and be exalted, and be very high. 
Like as many, on his account, were astonied, — 
So marred from a man's was his visage. 
And his form from the children of men, — 
So will many in him take delight; 

Before him kings shall be awe-struck in silence; 

For that which had never been told them shall they see, 

And what they had not heard shall they consider. 

Isaiah 53 

Who indeed hath believed our report? 
And to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed?

For he grew up before him as a tender plant, 

And as a root out of a dry ground: 
He had no form nor comeHness that we should regard him, 

And no beauty that we should desire him. 
He was despised and rejected of men, 
A man of sorrows and acquainted with grief; 

And, as one from whom men hide their face, 

He was despised, and we esteemed him not. 

But, surely, he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows; 

Yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God and afflicted : 
But he was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: 

The chastisement of our peace was upon him, 

And with his stripes we are healed. 
All we like sheep have gone astray, 
We have turned every one to his own way. 

And the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. 

He was oppressed, yet he humbled himself, 

And opened not his mouth: 
As a lamb that is led to the slaughter. 
And as a sheep before her shearers is dumb. 

So he opened not his mouth. 
By an oppressive judgment was he taken away. 

And as for his generation who among them considered, 
That for my people he was cut off out of the land of the living. 

That for their transgression he was stricken to death? 
So they made his grave with the wicked. And with the rich in his death. 

Though no wrong had he done, Neither was there guile in his mouth. 

Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him, and to put him to grief: 
For so — since he had made himself an offering for sin — 

He should see a posterity, he should prolong his days. 
And the purpose of the Lord should prosper in his hand. 

Out of the travail of his soul shall he see. 
With his knowledge shall he be satisfied. 

My righteous Servant shall win righteousness for many. 

And take up the load of their iniquities : 
Therefore will 1 give him a portion with the great. 

And with the strong he shall share the spoil; 
Because he poured out his soul unto death. 
And let himself be reckoned with transgressors: 

And yet it was he that bore the sins of many, 

And for the transgressors he made intercession.

Nor hath the fierce lion passed thereby.

And the thing that is hid bringeth he forth to light.

They went about in sheepskins and goatskins, 

Destitute, afflicted, illtreated; 
Wandering in deserts and mountains and caves and holes of the earth;

With longsuflfering bearing with one another in love. 

Giving diligence to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 
There is one body and one Spirit, 

Even as also we were called in one hope of our calling ; 
One Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all 

Who is over all, and through all, and in all. 
But unto each one of us was the grace given, 

According to the measure of the gift of Christ, 
For the perfecting of the saints, 
Unto the work of ministering. 

Unto the building up of the body of Christ: 
Till we all attain unto the unity of the faith, 
And of the knowledge of the Son of God, 

Unto a fullgrown man, 

Unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ : 
That we may be no longer children, tossed to and fro 
And carried about by every wind of doctrine. 
By the sleight of men, in craftiness, after the wiles of error; 

But speaking truth in love. 

May grow up in all things unto him who is the head, even Christ; 
From whom all the body fitly framed and knit together, 
Through that which every joint supplieth, 
According to the working in due measure of each several part, 

Maketh increase of the body unto the building up of itself in love. 
For, even as we have many members in one body, 
And all the members have not the same office, 

So we, who are many, are one body in Christ, 

And severally members one of another. 

The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not a communion of the blood of Christ? 

The bread which we break, is it not a communion of the body of Christ? 
Seeing that we, who are many, are one bread, one body, 

For we all partake of the one bread. 
None of us liveth to himself, and none of us dieth to himself: 

For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; 

Or whether we die, we die unto the Lord. 
Whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord's; 

For to this end Christ died and lived again, 

That he might be Lord of all, 

Both of the dead and the living.

Hebrews -^'^^ Great High Priest 

WHEREFORE, holy brethren, partakers of a heavenly calling, 
Consider Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession; 
Whom we behold, because of the suffering of death, 
Crowned with glory and honor. 
For it became Him, for whom are all things and by whom are all things, 
in bringing many sons unto glory. 
To make the leader of their salvation perfect through sufferings. 
For he needed to be made like his brethren in all things, 
That he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in the things 
pertaining unto God. 
For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted. 

He is able to succor them that are tempted. 
Though he was a Son, yet he learned obedience by the things which he suffered: 
And being made perfect, he became unto all who obey him the author of 
eternal salvation. 
Having, then, a great high priest who hath passed through the heavens, 
Jesus the Son of God, 
Let us hold fast our confession. 
For we have not a high priest who cannot be touched with the feeling of our 
infirmities, 
But one who hath been tempted in all points like as we are, yet without sin. 
Let us then draw near with boldness unto the throne of grace, 

With a true heart and in fullness of faith, 
That we may receive mercy, 

And find grace to help us in time of need ; 
For he is able to save to the uttermost those that draw near to God through him. 

Seeing that he ever liveth to make intercession for them. 
Because he abideth for ever, he hath his priesthood unchangeable: 

Jesus Christ the same, yesterday, to-day and for ever. 
Through him let us offer continually to God a sacrifice of praise. 

That is the fruit of our lips confessing his name. 
And to do good and to communicate forget not. 
For with such sacrifices God is well pleased. 

Now THE God of peace, who brought again from the dead 
Our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep. 
Make us perfect in every good work to do his will. 
Working in us that which is well-pleasing in his sight, 
Through Jesus Christ; 

To whom be the glory for ever and ever. Amen. -

Risen with Christ 

TF then ye were raised with Christ, 
-'■ Seek the things that are above. 

Where Christ is, seated on the right hand of God. 
Set your mind on the things that are above, 
Not on the things that are upon the earth. 

For we died and our life is hid with Christ in God. 
That hke as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, 

So we also might walk in newness of life. 
For if we have become united with him in the Hkeness of his death, 

We shall be united with him also in the likeness of his resurrection. 
If we died with Christ, 

We believe that we shall also live with him; 
For we know that as Christ was raised from the dead. 

He dieth no more ; death has no more dominion over him. 
For the death that he died, he died unto sin once. 

But the life that he liveth he liveth unto God. 
Even so let us reckon ourselves to be dead unto sin. 

But alive unto God in Christ Jesus. 

But if Christ live in us, The body is dead because of sin, 

But the spirit is life because of righteousness. 
And if the Spirit of him who raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in us. 

He who raised up Christ Jesus from the dead 

Shall quicken also our mortal bodies through his Spirit dwelling in us. 
So then, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh; 
For if we live after the flesh we must die: 

But if by the Spirit we put to death the deeds of the body, we shall live. 

Let not sin, then, reign in our mortal body. 
That we should obey the lusts thereof; 

Neither let us present our members unto sin as instruments of unright- 
eousness ; 
But present ourselves unto God as alive from the dead, 
And our members unto God as instruments of righteousness. 

For sin shall not have dominion over us : 
But now being set free from sin and become bond-servants of God, 

We have our fruit unto sanctification, and the end eternal life. 
For the wages of sin is death; 

But the free gift of God is eternal life 

In Jesus Christ, our Lord.

The Resurrection 

1 Corinthians 15 

NOW is Christ risen from the dead, 
And become the first fruits of them that sleep. 

For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. 
As we have borne the image of the earthy, 

We shall also bear the image of the heavenly. 
For there are celestial bodies and bodies terrestrial: 

But the glory of the celestial is one, 

And the glory of the terrestrial is another. 
There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory 
of the stars; 

For one star differeth from another star in glory. 
So also is the resurrection of the dead. 

It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption : 
It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory: 

It is sown in weakness ; it is raised in power : 
It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. 

If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body. 
Howbeit that is not first which is spiritual, 

But that which is natural, then that which is spiritual. 
The first man is of the earth, earthy: 

The second man is of heaven. 
As is the earthy, such are they also which are earthy: 

And as is, the heavenly, such are they also which are heavenly. 
Now flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, 

Neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. 
Behold, 1 show you a mystery! 

We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed. 
For this corruptible must put on incorruption, 

And this mortal must put on immortality. 
But when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, 

And this mortal shall have put on immortality. 
Then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written. 

Death is swallowed 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 Lord Jesus Christ.

AS many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. 
For we received not the spirit of bondage, again unto fear; 
But we received the spirit of sonship, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. 
The Spirit himself beareth v/itness with our spirit, that we are children of God: 

And if children, then heirs, heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ ; 
If so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified with him. 
For we reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be 
compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. 
And we know that to them that love God all things work together for good. 

If God is for us, who is against us? 
He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all. 
How shall he not also with him freely give us all things? 

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? 
Shall tribulation, or anguish, or persecution, 
Or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 

Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors 

Through him that loved us. 
For 1 am persuaded that neither death, nor life, 
Nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, 

Nor things present, nor things to come. 
Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, 

Shall be able to separate us from the love of God,

Wherefore we faint not ; 

For though our outer man is decaying. 

Day by day our inward man is renewed. 
For our light affliction, which is for the moment, 
Worketh for us more and more exceedingly an eternal weight of glory; 

While we look not at the things which are seen. 

But at the things which are not seen ; 
For the things which are seen are temporal.

And guide them to fountains of living water. 
And God himself shall be with them, 

And his servants shall serve him, And they shall see his face, 

And his name shall be in their foreheads ;

Hehreas 10 

Having therefore, brethren, a great High Priest over the household of God, 

And having boldness to enter into the Holy Place, 

Through the new and living way which he dedicated for us; 

Let us draw near with a true heart in fulness of faith. 

Having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, 

Holding fast and unwavering the confession of our hope: 

And let us consider one another to incite unto love and good works; 

Not forsaking our own assembling together, as the custom of some is. 

But exhorting and cheering one another. 

DEPENDENCE AND TRUST 

15. / Wil/ Lift up Mine Eyes 

Pialm 121 

I will lift up mine eyes unto the mountains: 

From whence shall my help come? 

My help cometh from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. 

He will not suffer thy foot to be moved : 

He that keepeth thee will not slumber. 

Behold, he that keepeth Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. 

The Lord is thy keeper: 

The Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand. 

The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night. 

The Lord will keep thee from all evil; He will keep thy soul. 

The Lord will keep thy going out and thy coming in 

From this time forth and for evermore. 

16. The Lord is My Shepherd 

Psalm 23 

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. 
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; 
He leadeth me beside the still waters. 
He restoreth my soul: 

He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. 
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, 
1 will fear no evil; for thou art with me; 
Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me. 

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: 
Thou anointest my head with oil; My cup runneth over. 
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; 
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

THE LIFE IN CHRIST 

17. That Christ may Dwell in Our Hearts 

Ephesians 3 

For this cause we bow our knees unto the Father, 

From whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, 

That he would grant us according to the riches of his glory 

That we may be strengthened with power through his Spirit in the inward man; 

That Christ may dwell in our hearts through faith; 

So that, being rooted and grounded in love, 

We may be enabled to comprehend, with all the saints, , 

What is the breadth and length and height and depth, 

And to know the love of Christ which passeth knowledge. 

That we may be filled unto all the fulness of God. 

Now unto him who is able to do exceeding abundantly. 
Above all that we ask or think. 
According to the power whereby he worketh in us. 
Unto him, be the glory in the Church and in Christ Jesus 
Unto all generations for ever and ever. Amen. 

18. Love the Bond of Perfectness 

Colossians 3 

Let US put on therefore, as God's elect, holy and beloved, 

A heart of compassion, kindness, lowliness, meekness, longsufTering; 

Forbearing one another, and forgiving each other. 

If any man have a complaint against any; 

Even as the Lord forgave us, so let us forgive. 

And over and above all these things 

Put on love which is the bond of perfectness. 

And let the peace of Christ rule in our hearts, 

For to this also we were called in one body: 

And let us show ourselves thankful: 

And let the word of Christ dwell in us richly, in all wisdom. 

And whatsoever we do, in word or in deed. 

Let us do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, 

Giving thanks to God the Father through him. 

And may the Lord of peace himself give us peace, 

At all times, in all ways. The Lord be with us all.

19. Let Brotherly Love Continue 

Hebrews 13 

Let brotherly love continue. 

Forget not to show love unto strangers, 

For thereby some have entertained angels unawares. 

Remember those in bonds, as bound with them; 

Those who are illtreated, as being ourselves also in the body: 

To do good and to communicate forget not, 

For with such sacrifices God is well-pleased. 

Let marriage be had in honor among all. 

Let us be free from the love of money. 

Content with such things as we have: 

For He hath said, 

'Never will 1 leave thee, never will 1 forsake thee/ 

So that with good courage we may say, 

'The Lord is my helper, 1 will not fear: 

What shall man do unto me?'

THE FAITH OF THE CHURCH 

24. y4n Ancient Confession of Faith 

I believe in God the Father Almighty, 

Maker of heaven and earth: 
And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord: 

Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, Born of the Virgin Mary: 

Suffered under Pontius Pilate, Was crucified, dead, and buried: 

The third day he rose again from the dead: 

He ascended into heaven. 

And sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty: 

From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. 
I believe in the Holy Ghost: 

The Holy Catholic Church: The Communion of Saints: 

The Forgiveness of sins: The Resurrection of the dead: 

And the Life Everlasting. Amen.

25. A Scriptural Confession of Faith 

To us there is: One God, the Father, 

Of whom are all things, and we unto him; 
And one Lord Jesus Christ, 

Through whom are all things, and we through him; 

Who was manifested in the flesh, Justified in the spirit. 

Seen of angels. Preached among the nations, 

Believed on in the world. Received up in glory; 
And one Spirit of truth, Proceeding from the Father, 

Bearing witness of Christ, Guiding us into all truth, 

Declaring unto us the things that are to come, 

Bearing witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 

Having fruit in all goodness, righteousness and truth.

The Lord' s Prayer 

OUR Father who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name, 
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. 
Give us this day our daily bread. 
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. 
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: 
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. 

ALMIGHTY God, unto whom all hearts are open, all desires known, and 
from whom no secrets are hid; cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the 
inspiration of thy Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love thee, and worthily 
magnify thy holy name; through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

O ALMIGHTY God, from whom cometh down every good and perfect 
gift, and who pourest out on all who desire it the Spirit of grace and 
supplication; deliver us, when we draw nigh unto thee, from coldness of heart 
and wanderings of mind; that with steadfast thoughts and kindled affections we 
may worship thee in spirit and in truth; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, who art always more ready to hear than 
we to pray, and art wont to give more than either we desire or deserve; 
pour down upon us the abundance of thy mercy, forgiving us those things 
whereof our conscience is afraid, and giving us those good things which we 
are not worthy to ask, but through the merits and mediation of Jesus Christ, 
thy Son, our Lord. Amen. 

OGOD, light of the hearts that see thee, and life of the souls that love 
thee, and strength of the thoughts that seek thee; from whom to be 
turned away is to fall, to whom to be turned is to rise, and in whom to abide is 
to stand fast forever; grant us now thy grace and blessing as we are here assem- 
bled to offer up our common supplications; and though we are unworthy to 
approach thee, or to ask anything of thee at all, be pleased to hear and to 
answer us, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

LORD our God, great, eternal, wonderful in glory, who keepest covenant 
and promises for those that love thee with their whole heart; who art 
the life of all, the help of those that flee unto thee, the hope of those who 
cry unto thee; cleanse us from our sins secret and open, and from every 
thought displeasing to thy goodness; cleanse our bodies and souls, our hearts 
and consciences, that with a pure heart and a clear soul, with perfect love and 
calm hope, we may venture confidently and fearlessly to pray unto thee. Amen.

Prayers 



OGOD, who art, and wast, and art to come, before whose face the gener- 
ations rise and pass away; age after age the living seek thee, and find 
that of thy faithfuhiess there is no end. Our fathers in their pilgrimage walked 
by thy guidance, and rested on thy compassion: still to their children be thou 
the cloud by day, the fire by night. Where but in thee have we a covert from 
the storm, or shadow from the heat of life. In our manifold temptations thou 
alone knowcst and art ever nigh: in sorrow thy pity revives the fainting soul: 
in our prosperity and ease it is thy Spirit only that can wean us from our pride 
and keep us low. O thou sole source of peace and righteousness, take now 
the veil from every heart ; and join us in one communion with thy prophets and 
saints who have trusted in thee and were not ashamed. Not of our worthi- 
ness, but of thy tender mercy, hear our prayer. Amen. 

OGOD, who hast prepared for those who love thee such good things as 
pass man's understanding ; pour into our hearts such love toward thee, 
that we, loving thee above all things, may obtain thy promises, which exceed all 
that we can desire; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

OLORD, our heavenly Father, almighty and everlasting God, who hast 
safely brought us to the beginning of this day; defend us in the same 
with thy mighty power; and grant that this day we fall into no sin, neither run 
into any kind of danger; but that all our doings, being ordered by thy gover- 
nance, may be righteous in thy sight; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

OMOST loving Father, who wiliest us to give thanks for all things, to 
dread nothing but the loss of thee, and to cast all our cares on thee who 
carest for us; preserve us from faithless fears and worldly anxieties, and grant 
that no clouds of this mortal life may hide from us the light of that love which 
evermore dwells in thee, and which thou hast manifested to us in thy Son Jesus 
Christ our Lord. Amen. 

OGOD, by whom the meek are guided in judgment, and light riseth up in 
darkness for the godly ; grant us, in all our doubts and uncertainties, 
the grace to ask what thou wouldst have us to do; that the Spirit of wisdom 
may save us from all false choices, and that in thy light we may see light, and in 
thy straight path may not stumble; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

OGOD, who art the author of peace and lover of concord, in knowledge 
of whom standeth our eternal life, whose service is perfect freedom; 
defend us thy humble servants in all assaults of our enemies; that we, surely 
trusting in thy defence, may not fear the power of any adversaries, through the 
might of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, who requirest the hearts of thy creatures; 
convert us wholly to thyself; turn away our eyes from beholding vanity, 
and quicken us in thy way ; through him who is at once the pattern and the 
power of godliness, thy Son Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Prayers 

OGOD, the sovereign good of the soul, who requirest the hearts ot all thy 
children; deliver us from all sloth in thy work, all coldness in thy 
cause; and grant that by looking unto thee u^e may rekindle our love, and 
by waitmg upon thee may renew our strength; through Jesus Christ our 
Lord. Amen. 

LORD of all power and might, who art the Author and Giver of all good 
things; graft in our hearts the love of thy name, increase in us true 
religion, nourish us with all goodness, and of thy great mercy keep us in the 
same, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

OGOD, from whom all holy desires, all good counsels, and all just works 
do proceed; give unto thy servants that peace which the world cannot 
give; that our hearts may be set to obey thy commandments, and also that by 
thee, we, being defended from the fear of our enemies, may pass our time in 
rest and quietness; through the merits of Jesus Christ our Saviour. Amen. 

OGOD, who, by the example of thy dear Son, hast warned us that we 
should work thy works while it is day, before the night cometh when no 
man can work; keep us from sloth and idleness, and from the misuse of those 
talents which thou hast committed to our trust. Enable us to perform the 
several duties of our state and calling with such care and diligence that our 
work may never be reproved in thy sight; and forasmuch as the needful business 
of this life is apt to steal away our hearts from thee, give us grace to remember 
that we have a Master in heaven, and to do everything in singleness of heart, 
as unto thee and not unto men, that of thee we may receive the reward of the 
inheritance which thou hast promised in thy Son our Saviour Jesus Christ. 
Amen. 

OGOD, the protector of all that trust In thee, without whom nothing is 
strong, nothing is holy; increase and multiply upon us thy mercy; that, 
thou being our ruler and guide, we may so pass through things temporal, that 
we finally lose not the things eternal. Grant this, O heavenly Father, for 
Jesus Christ's sake our Lord. Amen. 

OGOD, who art the guide and shepherd of all faithful souls, grant unto 
us who have now tasted of thy goodness, that the eyes of our spirit may 
never cease to see thee, nor our ears to hear thy voice; that so we, constantly 
remembering thy love and goodness towards men, may with a pure heart and 
faithful mind give ourselves to serve and follow thee, through Jesus Christ our 
Lord. Amen. 

DIRECT us, O Lord, in all our doings, with thy most gracious favor, and 
further us with thy continual help; that in all our works begun, continued, 
and ended in thee, we may glorify thy holy name, and finally, by thy mercy, 
obtain everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



Prayers 



ALMIGHTY God, who hast given us grace at this time with one accord 
to make our common supplications unto thee; and dost promise that 
when two or three are gathered together in thy name thou wilt grant their 
requests ; fulfil now, O Lord, the desires and petitions of thy servants, as may 
be most expedient for them; granting us in this world knowledge of thy truth, 
and in the world to come life everlasting. Amen. 

At Evening 

OGOD, with whom there is no darkness, but the night shineth as the 
day; keep and defend us and all thy children, in soul and body, during 
the coming night. May we rest in the consciousness of thy favor, in the 
peace of a good conscience, in the hope of a better life, in the faith of thy 
providence, in the love of thy spirit. May we rise up again to diligence in our 
several callings, to work the work of God while the day lasts, seeing that the 
night Cometh in which no man can work. And whether we wake or sleep 
may we live together with Christ. Amen. 

LIGHTEN our darkness, we beseech thee, O Lord; and by thy great 
mercy defend us from all perils and dangers of this night; for the love 
of thy only Son, our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen. 

A General Confession 

ALMIGHTY and most merciful Father; we have erred, and strayed from 
thy ways like lost sheep. We have followed too much the devices and 
desires of our own hearts. We have offended against thy holy laws. We 
have left undone those things which we ought to have done; and we have 
done those things which we ought not to have done. But thou, O Lord, have 
mercy upon us. Spare thou those, O God, who confess their faults. Restore 
thou those who art penitent, according to thy promises declared unto mankind 
in Christ Jesus our Lord. And grant, O most merciful Father, for his sake; 
That we may hereafter live a godly, righteous, and sober life, To the glory of 
thy holy name. Amen. 

A General Thanksgiving 

ALMIGHTY God, Father of all mercies, we, thine unworthy servants, do 
give thee most humble and hearty thanks for all thy goodness and loving- 
kindness to us, and to all men. We bless thee for our creation, preservation, 
and all the blessings of this life; but above all, for thine inestimable love in the 
redemption of the world by our Lord Jesus Christ ; for the means of grace, and 
for the hope of glory. And, we beseech thee, give us that due sense of all thy 
mercies, that our hearts may be unfeignedly thankful, and that we show forth 
thy praise, not only with our lips, but in our lives, by giving up ourselves to 
thy service, and by walking before thee in holiness and righteousness all our 
days ; through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom, with thee and the Holy Ghost, 
be all honor and glory, world without end. Amen.

For all Conditions of Men 

OGOD, the Creator and Preserver of all mankind, we humbly beseech thee 
for all sorts and conditions of men; that thou wouldest be pleased to 
make thy ways known unto them, thy saving health unto all nations. More 
especially we pray for thy holy Church universal; that it may be so guided and 
governed by thy good Spirit, that all who profess and call themselves Christians 
may be led into the way of truth, and hold the faith in unity of spirit, in the 
bond of peace, and in righteousness of life. Finally, we commend to thy 
fatherly goodness all those who are any ways afflicted, or distressed, in mind, 
body, or estate; that it may please thee to comfort and relieve them, according 
to their several necessities; giving them patience under their sufferings, and a 
happy issue out of all their afflictions. And this we beg for Jesus Christ's 
sake. Amen. 

For the Remembrance of the Dead 

ETERNAL God, in whom do rest the spirits of just men made perfect; we 
bless and praise thy holy name for all thy servants departed this life in 
thy faith and fear; and especially for those most dear to us, of whom we have 
good hope that they have fallen asleep in Jesus. And we beseech thee to give 
us grace to follow their good examples, that even here we may be united to 
them in fellowship of spirit, and that finally we may be gathered together with 
them into the bosom of thy love, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

For the President and all in Civil Authority 

OLORD, our heavenly Father, the high and mighty Ruler of the universe, 
who dost from thy throne behold all the dwellers upon earth; most 
heartily we beseech thee with thy favor to behold and bless thy servant, the 
President of the United States, and all others in authority; and so replenish 
them with the grace of thy Holy Spirit that they may always incline to thy 
will, and walk in thy way. Endue them plenteously with heavenly gifts; 
grant them in health and prosperity long to live; and finally, after this life, to 
attain everlasting joy and felicity ; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

For the Country 

ALMIGHTY God, who in the former time leddest our fathers forth into 
a wealthy place, and didst set their feet in a large room; give thy grace, 
we humbly beseech thee, to us their children, that we may always approve 
ourselves a people mindful of thy favor and glad to do thy will. Bless our 
land with honorable industry, sound learning and pure manners. Defend our 
liberties, preserve our unity. Save us from violence, discord and confusion, 
from pride and arrogancy and every evil way. Fashion into one happy people 
the multitudes brought hither out of many kindreds and tongues. Endue with 
the spirit of wisdom those whom we entrust in thy name with the authority of 
governance, to the end that there be peace at home, and that we keep our 
place among the nations of the earth. In the time of our prosperity temper 
our self confidence with thankfulness, and in the day of trouble suffer not our 
trust in thee to fail; all which we ask for Jesus Christ's sake. Amen.

that great Shepherd of the sheep, make you perfect in every good work to do 
his will, working in you that which is well pleasing in his sight, through Jesus 
Christ; to whom be the glory for ever and ever. Amen. 

Now unto Him that is able to keep us from falling, and to present us fault- 
less before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, to the only wise God 
our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. 
Amen. 

The Lord bless you and keep you:
