Thomas Kelly (1769-1854), ordained a priest of the (Anglican) Church of Ireland in 1792, came under the influence of Methodism and into the disfavor of his bishop.  So Kelly founded a small Evangelical sect, adherents of which were Kellyites.  The sect died a few years after Kelly did.  The Church of Ireland claimed the building of one defunct congregation.  Other structures came to have secular uses.  But he wrote nice hymns.

1.  In Thy Name, O Lord, assembling,

We, Thy people, now draw near;

Teach us to rejoice with trembling,

Speak, and let Thy servants hear,

Hear with meekness–

Hear Thy Word with godly fear.

2.  While our days on earth are lengthened,

May we give them, Lord, to Thee;

Cheered by hope, and daily strengthened,

May we run, nor weary be,

Till Thy glory

Without cloud in heaven we see.

3.  Then, in worship purer, sweeter,

Thee Thy people shall adore;

Tasting of enjoyment greater

Far than thought conceived before;

Full enjoyment,

Full, unmixed, and evermore.

1.  Speed Thy servants, Saviour, speed them;

Thou art Lord of winds and waves;

They were bound, but Thou hast freed them;

Now they go to free the slaves;

Be Thou with them! Be thou with them!

‘Tis Thine arm alone that saves.

2.  Friends, and home, and all forsaking,

Lord, they go at Thy command,

As their stay Thy promise taking,

While they traverse sea and land:

O be with them! O be with them!

Lead them safely by the hand.

3.  When no fruit appears to cheer them

And they seem to toil in vain,

Then in mercy, Lord, draw near them,

Then their sinking hopes sustain,

Thus supported, Thus supported,

Let their zeal revive again.

4.  In the midst of opposition

Let them trust, O Lord, in Thee;

When success attends their mission,

Let Thy servants humble be;

Never leave them, Never leave them,

Till Thy face in Heaven they see!

1.  Hark! ten thousand harps and voices

Sound the note of praise above:

Jesus reigns, and heaven rejoices;

Jesus reigns, the God of love,

See, He sits on yonder throne;

Jesus rules the world alone.

2.  Jesus, hail! Whose glory brightens

All above, and makes it fair;

Lord of live, Thy smile enlightens,

Cheers, and charms Thy people here.

When we think of love like Thine,

Lord, we own it love divine.

3.  King of glory, reign for ever;

Thine an everlasting crown;

Nothing from Thy love shall sever

Those whom Thou has made Thine own;

Happy objects of Thy grace,

Destined to behold Thy face.

4.  Saviour, hasten Thine appearing;

Bring, O bring the glorious day,

When, the awful summons hearing,

Heaven and earth shall pass away;

Then with golden harps, we’ll sing:

“Glory, glory, to our King.”

1.  Zion’s King shall reign victorious,

all the earth shall own his sway;

he will make his kingdom glorious,

he will reign through endless day.

Mighty King, thine arm revealing,

now thy glorious cause maintain;

bring the nations help and healing,

make them subject to thy reign.

2.  Nations now from God estranged

then shall see a glorious light;

night to day shall then be changed;

heaven shall triumph in the sight.

Mighty King, thine arm revealing,

now thy glorious cause maintain;

bring the nations help and healing,

make them subject to thy reign.

1.  Thro’ the day Thy love has spared us;

Now we lay us down to rest,

Thro’ the silent watches guard us,

Let no foe our peace molest;

Jesus! Thou our Guardian be;

Sweet it is to trust in Thee.

2.  Pilgrims here on earth, and strangers,

Dwelling in the midst of foes,

Us and ours preserve from dangers;

In Thine arms may we repose,

And when life’s brief day is past

Rest with Thee in heaven at last.

3.  Trinue God, let all adore Thee,

Saints on earth, and saints in heaven;

Every creature bow before Thee,

Who has all their being given;

Who dost seek and save the lost;

Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

1.  God of our salvation! hear us;

Bless, O bless us, ere we go;

When we join the world, be near us,

Lest we cold and careless grow.

Saviour! keep us,

Keep us safe from ev’ry foe.

2.  As our steps are drawing nearer

To our everlasting home,

May our view of heaven grow clearer,

Hope more bright of joys to come;

And, when dying,

May Thy presence cheer the gloom.
