559 satisfy us early with thy mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.
Ps. xc : 14
The brightness of the day, O for a soul washed white, The crimson of the sunset sky, 11:0 for a voice to praise our King,
How fast they fade away: Nor weary day or night ! :// O for the pearly gates of heav'n!
3 Here faith is ours, and heavenly hope, O for the golden floor !
And grace to lead us higher ; 11:0 for the Sun of Righteousness ! But there are perfectness and peace, That setteth nevermore 1:||
Beyond our best desire :
O by Thy love and anguish, Lord, 2 The highest hopes we cherish here, O by Thy life laid down,
How fast they tire and faint: ||:Grant that we fall not from Thy How many a spot defiles the robe
3 There is a spot where spirits blend,
Where friend holds fellowship with friend;
Around one common mercy-seat.
There, there, on eagles' wings we soar,
And time and sense seem all no more ;
And glory crowns the mercy-seat.
1 O what their joy and their glory must be,
Those heav'nly Sabbaths the blessed ones see !
2 Truly "Jerusalem" name we that shore,
Vision of peace that brings joy evermore!
3. We, where no trouble distraction can bring,
y blessèd people shall evermore raise.
4 Now in the meanwhile, with hearts raised on high,
We for that country must yearn and must sigh,
5 Low before Him with our praises we fall,
Of whom, and in whom, and through whom are all ;
Thou hast with thine arm redeemed thy people. Ps. lxxvii : 15.
1 0 Jesus, Saviour of the lost,
My Rock and Hiding-place,
I seek Thy sheltering grace.
2 Forgive me guilty, Lord, I cry:
Pursued by foes, I come;
A wand'rer, take me home.
3 There safe in Thine almighty arms,
Let storms come on amain,
Where Thou, O Lord, dost reign.
