2 So from the Saviour on the cross
A healing virtue flows;
Is saved from endless woes.
So generous was His love,
Eternal life above.
The Son of God appeared ;
Nor voice of terror heard :
And our lost hopes restore:
And bids us fear no more.
AT even, ere the sun was set,
A The sick, O Lord, around Thee lay, L.M. O in what divers pains they met!
O with what joy they went away! 2 Once more 'tis eventide, and we,
Oppressed with various ills, draw near, What if Thy form we cannot see?
We know and feel that Thou art here.
For some are sick, and some are sad,
And some have lost the love they had;
Yet from the world they break not free; And some have friends who give them pain,
Yet have not sought a friend in Thee.
For none are wholly free from sin ;
Are conscious most of wrong within.
6 O Saviour Christ, Thou too art Man;
Thou hast been troubled, tempted, tried ; Thy kind but searching glance can scan
The very wounds that shame would hide. 7 Thy touch has still its ancient power,
No word from Thee can fruitless fall;
And in Thy mercy heal us all.
WAKE, and sing the song
Of Moses and the Lamb;
To praise the Saviour's name.
Sing of His rising power; :
For those whose sins He bore.
Ye ransomed sinners, sing,
In Christ, the eternal King.
Ye blessed children, come:
And take His wanderers home.
His endless praise proclaim,
Of Moses and the Lamb.
11. DEFORE Jehovah's awful throne.
D Ye nations, bow with sacred joy ;
He can create and He destroy.
Made us of clay, and formed us men;
He brought us to His fold again.
3 We'll crowd Thy gates with thankful songs,
High as the heavens our voices raise ;
Shall fill Thy courts with sounding praise.
4 Wide as the world is Thy command,
Vast as eternity Thy love;
When rolling years shall cease to move.
DEHOLD, the mountain of the Lord
In latter days shall rise
And draw the wondering eyes.
All tribes and tongues shall flow;
And to His house we'll go.
Shall lighten every land;
Shall all the world command.
His judgments truth shall guide;
And quell the sinner's pride.
Or mar the peaceful years ;
To pruning-hooks their spears.
Their millions slain deplore;
And study war no more.
To worship at His shrine;
With holy beauties shine.
DLESS, O Lord, the opening year
D To each soul assembled here ; Clothe Thy Word with power divine, Make us willing to be Thine.
2 Shepherd of Thy blood-bought sheep,
Teach the stony heart to weep;
3 Where Thou hast Thy work begun,
4 Bless us all, both old and young;
Call forth praise from every tongue;
D LEST are the pure in heart,
D For they shall see our God, The secret of the Lord is theirs,
Their soul is Christ's abode.
The Lord, who left the heavens
Their pattern and their King:
He to the lowly soul
Doth still Himself impart,
Chooseth the pure in heart.
Lord, we Thy presence seek ;
A temple meet for Thee.
DLEST be the everlasting God,
D The Father of our Lord;
His majesty adored.
2 When from the dead He raised His Son,
And called Him to the sky,
That they should never die.
3 To an inheritance divine
He taught our hearts to rise; 'Tis uncorrupted, undefiled,
Unfading in the skies.
4 Saints by the power of God are kept
Till the salvation come:
But Christ shall call us home.
DLEST be the tie that binds
> Our hearts in Christian love, The fellowship of kindred minds
Is like to that above.
Before our Father's throne
We pour our ardent prayers;
Our comforts and our cares.
3 We share our mutual woes,
Our mutual burdens bear,
The sympathizing tear.
And sin we shall be free;
Through all eternity.
