++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

With hearts in love abounding,

Prepare we now to sing

A lofty theme, resounding

Thy praise, almighty King;

Whose love, rich gifts bestowing,

Redeemed the human race;

Whose lips with zeal o’erflowing,

Breathe the words of truth and grace.

+++++

So reign, O God of heaven,

Eternally the same;

And endless praise be given

To Thy almighty name.

Cloth’d in Thy dazzling brightness,

Thy church on earth behold,

In robe of purest whiteness,

In raiment wrought with gold.

+++++

And let each Gentile nation

Come gladly in her train,

To share Thy great salvation,

And join her grateful strain:

Then ne’er shall note of sadness

Awake the trembling string;

One song of joy and gladness

The ransomed world shall sing.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hasten, Lord, the glorious time,

When, beneath Messiah’s sway,

Every nation, every clime,

Shall the gospel call obey.

+++++

Mightiest kings his power shall own,

Heathen tribes his name adore;

Satan and his host, o’erthrown,

Bound in chains, shall hunt no more.

+++++

Then shall wars and tumults cease,

Then shall be banished grief and pain;

Righteousness, and joy, and peace,

Undisturbed shall ever reign.

+++++

Bless us, then, our gracious Lord,

Ever praise his glorious name;

All his mighty acts record,

All his wondrous love proclaim.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

With joy we hail the sacred day

Which God has called his own;

With joy the summons we obey,

To worship at his throne.

+++++

Thy chosen temple, Lord, how fair!

Where willing votaries throng

To breathe the humble fervent prayer–

And pour the choral song.

+++++

Spirit of grace! Oh deign to dwell

Within thy church below;

Make her in holiness excel,

With pure devotion glow.

+++++

Let grace within her walls be found–

Let all her sons unite,

To spread with grateful zeal around,

Her clear and shining light.

+++++

Great God, we hail the sacred day

Which thou hast called thine own;

With joy the summons we obey,

To worship at thy throne.

Spirit of peace! celestial dove!

How excellent thy praise!

No richer gift than Christian love

Thy gracious power displays.

+++++

Sweet as the dew on herb and flower,

That silently distills,

At evening’s soft and balmy hour,

On Zion’s fruitful hills:–

+++++

So, with mild and influence from above,

Shall promised grace descend,

Till universal peace and love

O’er all the earth extend.

Hail, gracious Source of every good,

Our Saviour and defence,

Thou art our glory, and our shield,

Our help and confidence.

+++++

When anxious fears disturb the breast,

When threatening foes are nigh,

To thee we pour our deep complaint,

To thee we for succour fly.

+++++

Jesus, or Lord–our only hope,

Before thy throne we bow:

Thou art our strength–and thou the Rock

Whence living waters flow.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Our blest Redeemer, ere he breathed

His tender, last farewell,

A Guide, a Comforter, bequeathed

With us to dwell.

+++++

He came in tongues of living flame,

To teach, convince, subdue;

All powerful as the wind he came,

As viewless too.

+++++

He came sweet influence to impart,

A gracious willing guest,

While he can find one humble heart

Wherein to rest.

+++++

And his that gentle voice we hear,

Soft as the breath of even,

That checks each fault, that calms each fear,

And speaks of heaven.

+++++

And every virtue we possess,

And every victory won,

And every thought of holiness,

Are his alone.

+++++

Spirit of purity and grace,

Our weakness pitying see;

O make our hearts thy dwelling place,

And worthier thee.
