im - mor-tal glad-ness, Fill us with the light of day. A-men.

2 All Thy works with joy surround Thee, Thou our Father, Christ our Brother, Earth and heaven reflect Thy rays,

All who live in love are Thine: Stars and angels sing around Thee,

Teach us how to love each other,
Centre of unbroken praise:

Lift us to the Joy Divine.
Field and forest, vale and mountain,
Blooming meadow, flashing sea,

4 Mortals join the mighty chorus, Chanting bird and flowing fountain,

Which the morning stars began:

Father-love is reigning o'er us, Call us to rejoice in Thee.

Brother-love binds man to man. 3 Thou art giving and forgiving,

Ever singing march we onward, Ever blessing, ever blest,

Victors in the midst of strife; Well-spring of the joy of living,

Joyful music lifts us sunward Ocean-depth of happy rest!

In the triumph song of life. Amen.

(d=96) Praise to God, im - mor - tal praise, For the love that crowns our days;

[merged small][ocr errors][merged small][ocr errors][merged small][merged small][ocr errors]

All to Thee, our God, we owe, Source whence all our bless-ings flow. A-men.

2 All the plenty summer pours,

Autumn's rich o'erflowing stores,
Flocks that whiten all the plain,
Yellow sheaves of ripened grain:
Lord, for these our souls shall raise
Grateful vows and solemn praise.

3 Peace, prosperity, and health,
· Private bliss, and public wealth,
Knowledge with its gladdening streams,
Pure religion's holier beams:
Lord, for these our souls shall raise
Grateful vows and solemn praise.

4 As Thy prospering hand hath blest,
May we give Thee of our best;
And by deeds of kindly love
For Thy mercies grateful prove;
Singing thus through all our days,
Praise to God, immortal praise. Amen.

Oh, wash me in Thy precious blood, And take my sins a - way.

2 A few more suns shall set

O'er these dark hills of time,
And we shall be where suns are not,

A far serener clime:
Then, O my Lord, prepare

My soul for that blest day;
Oh, wash me in Thy precious blood,

And take my sins away. 3 A few more storms shall beat.

On this wild rocky shore,
And we shall be where tempests cease,

And surges swell no more:
Then, O my Lord, prepare

My soul for that calm day;
Oh, wash me in Thy precious blood,

And take my sins away.

4 A few more struggles here,

A few more partings o'er,
A few more toils, a few more tears,

And we shall weep no more:
Then, O my Lord, prepare

My soul for that bright day;
Oh, wash me in Thy precious blood,

And take my sins away. 5 'Tis but a little while

And He shall come again,
Who died that we might live, Who lives

That we with Him may reign:
Then, O my Lord, prepare

My soul for that glad day;
Oh, wash me in Thy precious blood,
And take my sins away. Amen.

4 For this, and more than words can say,

We praise and bless Thy holy Name.
Come life or death, enough to know
That Thou art evermore the same. Amen.
