O’er the Distant Mountains Breaking

Salvator Amicus 878 747

G. HIRST

4 4

1. O'er the dis - tant mountains break-ing Comes the reddening dawn of day;

4 4

Rise, my soul, from sleep a - wak -ing, Rise, and sing, and watch, and pray;

0 Thou long-expected! weary

Waits my anxious soul for Thee,
Life is dark, and earth is dreary,
Where Thy light I do not see;

O my Saviour,
When wilt Thou return to me?

3
Nearer is my soul's salvation,

Spent the night, the day at hand;
Keep me in my lowly station,
Watching for Thee, till I stand,

O my Saviour,
In Thy bright, Thy promised land.

4
With my lamp well trimmed and burning,

Swift to hear and slow to roam,
Watching for Thy glad returning
To restore me to my home.

Come, my Saviour,
Thou hast promised: quickly come. Amen.

JOHN SAMUEL BEWLEY MONSELL

Love Him Who with love is yearning!

Hail the Star, that from far Bright with hope is burning!

4 Thee, dear Lord, with heed I'll cherish,

Live to Thee, and with Thee
Dying, shall not perish;
But shall dwell with Thee forever,

Far on high, in the joy
That can alter never. Amen.

Tr. CATHERINE WINKWORTH

3 Come, then, let us hasten yonder!

Here let all, great and small, Kneel in awe and wonder!

While Shepherds Watched

Winchester Old C. M.

ESTE'S Psalter

1. While shepherds watch'd their flocks by night, All seat - ed

[blocks in formation]

4 ع

The

an - gel of the Lord came down, And glo - ry shone a - round. A-men.

2

"Fear not,” said he (for mighty dread

Had seized their troubled mind), “Glad tidings of great joy I bring

To you and all mankind."

3
“To you in David's town this day

Is born of David's line
A Saviour, Who is Christ the Lord;

And this shall be the sign;"

4
“The heavenly Babe you there shall find

To human view displayed,
All meanly wrapped in swathing bands,
And in a manger laid.”

5
Thus spake the seraph; and forthwith

Appeared a shining throng
Of angels praising God, who thus
Addressed their joyful song:

6
“All glory be to God on high,

And to the earth be eace;
Good-will henceforth from heaven to men

Begin and never cease." Amen.
