Page 54 - Eternal Spirit, by Whose breath The soul is raised from sin and death, Before Thy throne we sinners bend ; To us Thy quickening power extend ! 4. Jehovah, Father, Spirit, Son, Mysterious Godhead, Three in One, Before Thy throne we sinners bend ; Grace, pardon, life, to us extend ! Amen.
Page 144 - Return, O holy Dove, return, Sweet messenger of rest! I hate the sins that made thee mourn, And drove thee from my breast.
Page 91 - Soon as the evening shades prevail The moon takes up the wondrous tale, And nightly to the listening earth Repeats the story of her birth ; Whilst all the stars that round her burn, And all the planets in their turn, Confirm the tidings as they roll, And spread the truth from pole to pole.
Page 127 - Give me a calm, a thankful heart, From every murmur free ; The blessings of thy grace impart, And make me live to thee. 3 " Let the sweet hope that thou art mine My life and death attend; Thy presence through my journey shine, And crown my journey's end.
