122 WINCHESTER, NEW L. M.
(d=80) On Jor-dan's bank the Bap-tist's cry An - nounc-es that the Lord is nigh;
Awake and hearken, for he brings Glad ti - dings of the King of kings. A-men.
2 Then cleansed be every Christian
breast And furnished for so great a Guest; Yea, let us each our hearts prepare For Christ to come and enter there.
3 For Thou art our Salvation, Lord,
Our refuge and our great reward; Without Thy grace we waste away, Like flowers that wither and decay.
4 To heal the sick stretch out Thine
And bid the fallen sinner stand;
5 All praise, eternal Son, to Thee,
Whose Advent set Thy people free, Whom with the Father we adore, And Holy Ghost for evermore. Amen. Latin Hymn, 18th Cent. Tr. JOHN CHANDLER

d=84) Come, Thou long - ex- pect - ed Je - sus, Born to set Thy peo - ple free;
From our fears and sins re - lease us, Let us find our rest in The
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,
Born to reign in us forever,
Now Thy gracious Kingdom bring. 4 By Thine own eternal Spirit,
Rule in all our hearts alone;
124 CROSS OF JESUS 88 & 75.
(=104) Hark! a thrill-ing voice is sound-ing; “Christ is nigh!" it seems to
" Cast &- way the dreams of dark-ness, O ye chil - dren of the day.” A - men.
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;
Wrapping all the world in fear,
Latin Hymn, sth Cent. Tr. EDWARD CASWALL
125 ST. PANCRAS 8 & 75. 61.
(d=90) Je - sus came, the heav'ns a - dor- ing, Came with peace from realms on high;
(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,
Glads our hearts, and dries our tears;
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.
126 ST. SAVIOUR C. M.
FREDERICK G. Baker
(d=92) Hark! the glad sound! the Sav-iour comes, The Sav-iour prom-ised long;
2 He comes, the prisoners to release,
In Satan's bondage held; The gates of brass before Him burst,
The iron fetters yield.
3 He comes, from thickest films of vice
To clear the mental ray, And on the eyes oppressed with night
To pour celestial day.
127 EAGLEY C. M.
(d=100) Light of the lone
ly pil - grim's heart, Star of the com - ing day,
A-rise and, with Thy morn-ing beams, Chase all our griefs a - way. A - men.
4 He comes, the broken heart to bind,
The bleeding soul to cure;
To enrich the humble poor.
Our glad hosannas, Prince of Peace,
Thy welcome shall proclaim;
2 Come, þlessèd 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,
And calls aloud for Thee.
3 Bid the whole earth responsive now
To the bright world above,
In memory of Thy love.
5 Thine was the Cross, with all its fruits
Of grace and peace divine:
