268 AZMON C. M.
Arr. fr. Carl G. Glaser by Lowell MASON
0 Thou, Whose own vast tem-ple stands, Built 0 - ver earth and sea,
Ac - cept the walls that human hands Have raised to wor-ship Thee. A-men.
2 Lord, from Thine inmost glory send,
Within these walls to abide,
Serenely by Thy side. 3 May erring minds, that worship here,
Be taught the better way;
And they who mourn, and they who fear,
Be strengthened as they pray. 4 May faith grow firm, and love grow warm,
And pure devotion rise, While, round these hallowed walls, the storm Of earth-born passion dies. Amen.

Offertories 269 HOLY TRINITY C. M.
(d=84) Lord, lead the way the Sav - iour went, By lane and cell ob - scure,
And let love's treasures still be spent, Like His, up - on the poor.
2 Like Him through scenes of deep distress, 3 For Thou hast placed us side by side, Who bore the world's sad weight,
In this wide world of ill, We, in their crowded loneliness,
And, that Thy followers may be tried, Would seek the desolate.
The poor are with us still.
4 Mean are all offerings we can make,
But Thou hast taught us, Lord,
They lose not their reward. Amen.
CHUMANN S. M.
Arr. fr. ROBERT SCHUMANN
(d=88) We give Thee but Thine own, What-e'er the gift may
trust, O Lord, from Thee. A-men.
On His al-tar laid, we leave them:Christ, present them! God receive them! A-men.
2 Homage of each humble heart,
3 To the Father, and the Son, Ere we from Thy house depart;
And the Spirit, Three in One, Worship fervent, deep and high,
Though our mortal weakness raise Adoration, ecstasy;
Offerings of imperfect praise, All that childlike love can render
Yet with hearts bowed down most lowly, Of devotion true and tender;
Crying, Holy! Holy! Holy! On Thine altar laid, we leave them: On Thine altar laid, we leave them: Christ, present them! God, receive them! Christ, present them! God, receive them!
Amen. John S. B. Monsell
(May be sung to Dennis, No. 410) 2 Before our Father's throne
But we shall still be joined in heart,
And hope to meet again.
5 This glorious hope revives
Our courage by the way; 3 We share our mutual woes,
While each in expectation lives,
And longs to see the day.
6 From sorrow, toil, and pain,
And sin, we shall be free; 4 When we asunder part,
And perfect love and friendship reign It gives us inward pain;
Through all eternity. Amen.
