2 See, how we grovel here below,
3 In vain we tune our lifeless songs, Fond of these earthly toys;
In vain we strive to rise;
Hosannas languish on our tongues,
And our devotion dies.
With all Thy quickening powers;
6 Alleluia! Lord, to Thee,
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
Join we with the heavenly host,
2 O Jesus, Lamb once crucified
To take our load of sins away, Thine be the hymn that rolls its tide
Along the realms of upper day.
3 O Holy Spirit from above,
In streams of light and glory given, Thou source of ecstasy and love,
Thy praises ring thro' earth and heav'n.
4 O God Triune, to Thee we owe
Our every thought, our every song;
James W. EASTBURN
