3 Ye who with guilty terror
Are trembling, fear no more:
Shall you to hope restore.
Will with the children place,
The heirs of life and grace. Amen. Paulus Gerhardt. Tr. ARTHUR T. Russell
let them still at - tend Him, Well pleased to hear their song.
A - men.
2 And since the Lord retaineth
His love for children still,
On Zion's heavenly hill,
Who sits upon the throne,
To David's royal Son.
3 For should we fail proclaiming
Our great Redeemer's praise,
Might well Hosannas raise.
The tribute of our words? No; while our hearts are tender, They too shall be the Lord's. Amen.

in maj - es - ty! Hark! all the tribes Ho - san - na cry;
O Saviour meek, pursue Thy road With palms and scatter'd garments strow'd. A-men.
3 Calvary's mournful mountain climb,
There, adoring at His feet, Mark that miracle of time,
God's own sacrifice complete; “It is finished,” hear Him cry, Learn of Jesus Christ to die. Amen.

(d=80) 'Tis midnight; and on Ol - ive's brow The star is dimm'd that late - ly shone:
'Tis midnight; in the gar - den now The suff'ring Saviour prays a - lone. A-men.
2 'Tis midnight; and from all removed, Yet He that hath in anguish knelt
Emmanuel wrestles lone with fears; Is not forsaken by His God. E'en the disciple that He loved Heeds not his Master's grief and tears. 4 'Tis midnight; and from heavenly plains
Is borne the song that angels know; 3 'Tis midnight; and for others' guilt Unheard by mortals are the strains The Man of sorrows weeps in blood; That sweetly soothe the Saviour's woe.
Amen. William B TAPPAN
Sweet the mo-ments, rich in bless-ing, Which be-fore the Cross I spend,
Life and health and peace pos-sessing From the sin-ner's dy-ing Friend. A-men.
