Where my soul in
joy - ful du - ty Waits for Him Who an-swers prayer:
o how bless-ed
is this place, Fill'd with sol - ace, light, and grace. A-men.
Speak, O God, and I will hear Thee,
Let Thy will be done indeed; May I undisturbed draw near Thee
Whilst Thou dost Thy people feed. Here of Life the Fountain flows, Here is balm for all our woes. Amen.
Tr. CATHBRINE WINKWORTH
With His own blood He bought her, And for her life He died. A-men.
Elect from every nation,
Yet one o'er all the earth, Her charter of salvation
One Lord, one faith, one birth; One holy Name she blesses,
Partakes one holy food, And to one hope she presses,
With every grace endued.
Though with a scornful wonder,
Men see her sore oppressed, By schisms rent asunder,
By heresies distressed; Yet saints their watch are keeping,
Their cry goes up, “How long ?" And soon the night of weeping
Shall be the morn of song.
We love the Word of Life,
Lord Jesus, give us grace
On earth to love Thee more,
In heaven to see Thy face,
And with Thy saints adore. Amen.
The Church's One Foundation
'Mid toil and tribulation,
And tumult of her war,
Of peace for evermore;
Her longing eyes are blest,
Shall be the Church at rest.
Yet she on earth hath union
With God the Three in One,
With those whose rest is won;
Lord, give us grace, that we,
On high may dwell with Thee. Amen.
SAMUEL JOHN STONE
