1.  Lord, while for all mankind we pray,

Of ev’ry clime and coast,

Oh, hear us for our native land,

The land we love the most.

2.  Oh, guard our shores from ev’ry foe;

With peace our borders bless,

Our cities with prosperity,

Our fields with plenteousness.

3.  Unite us in the sacred love

Of knowledge, truth, and thee;

And let our hills and valleys shout

The songs of liberty.

1.  The solemn service now is doen;

The vow is pledged, the toil begun;

Seal thou, O God! the oath above,

And ratify the pledge of love.

2.  The shepherd of thy people bless;

Gird him with thine own holiness;

In duty may hes pleasure be,

His glory in his zeal for thee.

3.  Here let the ardent pray’r arise,

Faith fix its grasp beyond the skies,

The tear of penitence be shed,

And myriads to the Savior led.

4.  Come, Spirit! here consent to dwell;

The mists of earth and sin dispel:

Blest Savior! thine own rights maintain;

Supreme in ev’ry bosom reign.

1.  My Jesus, as thou wilt!

Oh, may thy will be mine;

Into thy hands of love I would my all resign,

Through sorrow, or through joy,

Conduct me as thine own,

And help me still to say,

My Lord, thy will be done.

2.  My Jesus, as thou wilt!

Though seen through many a tear,

Let not my star of hope

Grow dim or disappeer;

Since thou on earth hast wept,

And sorrowed oft alone,

If I must weep with thee,

My Lord, thy will be done.

3.  My Jesus, as thou wilt!

All shall be well for me;

Each charging future scene

I gladly trust with thee;

Straight to my home above

I travel calmly on,

And sing, in life or death,

My Lord, thy will be done.

1.  I do not ask, O Lord, that my life may be

A pleasant road;

I do not ask that thou wouldst take from me

Aught of its load.

2.  For one thing only, Lord, dear Lord, I plead,–

Lead me aright,

Tho’ strength should falter and though heart should bleed,

Thro’ peace to light.

3.  I not ask my cross to understand,

My way to see;

Better in darkness just to feel thy hand,

And follow thee.

4.  Joy is like restless day, but peace divine

Like quite night;

Lead me, O Lord, till perfect day shall shine,

Thro’ peace to light.

As on thy spotless shore;

Of perfect rest above;

1.  That solemn night before his death,

The Lamb, for sinners slain,

Did, almost with his dying breath,

This solemn feast ordain.

2.  To keep the feast, Lord, we have met,

And to remember thee;

Help each each poor trembler to repeat,

For me, he died, for me.

3.  Thy suff’rings, Lord, each sacred sign

To our remembrance brings;

We eat the bread and drink the wine,

But think on nobler things.

4.  Oh, tune our tongues, and set in frame

Each heart that pants for thee,

To sing, Hosanna to the Lamb,

The Lamb that died for me.

1.  Arise, O King of grace, arise,

And enter to thy rest;

Lo! thy church waits, with longing eyes,

Thus to be own’d and blest.

2.  Here, mighty God, accept our vows,

Here let thy praise be spread:

Bless the provisions of thy house,

And fill thy poor with bread.

3.  Here let the Son of David reign,

Let God’s Anointed shine;

Justice and truth his court maintain,

With love and pow’r divine.

4.  Here let him hold a lasting throne,

And as his kingdom grows,

Fresh honors shall adorn his crown,

And shame confound his foes.
