From our fears and sins re - lease us, Let us find our rest in Thee.



2 Israel's strength and consolation, 3 Born Thy people to deliver, Hope of all the earth Thou art;

Born a child, and yet a King,
Dear desire of every nation,

Born to reign in us forever,
Joy of every longing heart.

Now Thy gracious Kingdom bring. 4 By Thine own eternal Spirit,

Rule in all our hearts alone;
By Thine all-sufficient merit,
Raise us to Thy glorious throne. Amen.

2 Wakened by the solemn warning, 3 Lo! the Lamb, so long expected, Let the earthbound soul arise;

Comes with pardon down from heaven; Christ, her Sun, all sloth dispelling, Let us haste, with tears of sorrow, Shines upon the morning skies.

One and all to be forgiven;
4 So when next He comes with glory,

Wrapping all the world in fear,
May He with His mercy shield us,
And with words of love draw near. Amen.

(May be sung to Regent Square, No. 133) 2 Jesus comes again in mercy,

4 Jesus comes in joy and sorrow, When our hearts are bowed with care; Shares alike our hopes and fears; Jesus comes again in answer

Jesus comes, whate'er befalls us,
To an earnest heartfelt prayer;

Glads our hearts, and dries our tears;
Alleluia! Alleluia!

Alleluia! Alleluia! Comes to save us from despair.

Cheering e'en our failing years. 3 Jesus comes to hearts rejoicing, 5 Jesus comes on clouds triumphant, Bringing news of sins forgiven;

When the heavens shall pass away; Jesus comes in sounds of gladness, Jesus comes again in glory; Leading souls redeemed to heaven; Let us then our homage pay, Alleluia! Alleluia!

Alleluia! ever singing, Now the gate of death is riven.

Till the dawn of endless day. Amen.

2 Come, blessèd Lord, bid every shore

And answering island sing
The praises of Thy royal Name,

And own Thee as their King.

4 Lord, Lord, Thy fair creation groans,

The air, the earth, the sea, In unison with all our hearts,

And calls aloud for Thee.

3 Bid the whole earth responsive now

To the bright world above, Break forth in rapturous strains of joy,

In memory of Thy love. .

5 Thine was the Cross, with all its fruits

Of grace and peace divine:
Be Thine the crown of glory now,
The palm of victory Thine. Amen.
