Page 49 - God, our help in ages past, Our hope for years to come ! Our shelter from the stormy blast, And our eternal home ! 2 Before the hills in order stood, Or earth received her frame, From everlasting thou art God, To endless years the same. 3 A thousand ages in thy sight Are like an evening gone ; Short as the watch that ends the night, Before the rising sun. 4 Time, like an ever-rolling stream, Bears all its sons away ; They fly, forgotten, as a dream Dies at the opening day. 5...
Page 158 - Before the willing spirit takes Her mansion near the throne. 3 Faith strives, but all its efforts fail To trace her heavenward flight ; No eye can pierce within the veil, Which hides that world of light. 4 Thus much, (and this is all) we know, They are supremely blest ; Have done with sin, and care, and woe, And with their Saviour rest. 5 On harps of gold His name they praise, And if we here their footsteps trace, There we shall praise Him too.
Page 38 - For him shall endless prayer be made, And princes throng to crown his head: His name like sweet perfume shall rise With every morning sacrifice. People and realms of every tongue Dwell on his love with sweetest song; And infant voices shall proclaim Their early blessings on his name.
Page 64 - My soul, praise the Lord; speak good of His Name; O Lord, our great God, how dost Thou appear ! So passing in glory, that great is Thy fame; Honour and majesty in Thee shine most clear. 2. With light as a robe Thou hast Thyself clad, Whereby all the earth Thy greatness may see ; The heavens in such sort Thou also hast spread, That they to a curtain compared may be. 3. His chamber-beams lie in the clouds full sure, Which as His chariots are made Him to bear ; And there with much swiftness His course...
Page 52 - Brethren, sisters, part in peace! 1 THOU who art enthroned above, Thou in whom we live and move, Good it is with joyful tongue To resound Thy praise in song : When the morning paints the skies, When the sparkling stars arise, All Thy favors to rehearse, And give thanks in grateful verse. 2 Sweet the day of sacred rest, When devotion fires the breast, When we dwell within Thy house, Hear Thy gospel, pay our vows, Songs to heaven's high mansion raise, Fill Thy courts with songs of praise, And in psalms...
Page 123 - OCR of aees, cleft for me, Let me hide myself in thee ; Let the water and the blood, From thy side, a healing flood, Be of sin the double cure, Save from wrath, and make me pure. 2 Should my tears for ever flow, Should my zeal no languor know, This for sin could not atone, Thou must save, and thou alone ; In my hand no price I bring, Simply to thy cross I cling. 3 While I draw this fleeting breath, When mine eyelids close in death, When I rise to worlds unknown, And behold thee on thy throne, Rock...
Page 188 - T^ATHER of all, whose love profound A ransom for our souls hath found, Before thy throne we sinners bend ; To us thy pardoning love extend. 2 Almighty Son, incarnate Word, Our Prophet, Priest, Redeemer, Lord, Before thy throne we sinners bend ; To us thy saving grace extend. 3 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...
Page 128 - And days are dark, and friends are few, On Him I lean, who, not in vain, Experienced every human pain : He sees my wants, allays my fears. And counts and treasures up my tears. 2 If aught should tempt my soul to stray From heavenly wisdom's narrow way, To flee the good I would pursue, Or do the sin I would not do, Still He, who felt temptation's power, Shall guard me in that dangerous hour. 3...
Page 171 - O'ER the realms of pagan darkness Let the eye of pity gaze; See the kindreds of the people, Lost in sin's bewildering maze : Darkness brooding On the face of all the earth. • 2 Light of them that sit in darkness ! Rise and shine, thy blessings bring ; Light to lighten all the gentiles ! Rise with healing in thy wing; To thy brightness, Let all kings and nations come. 3 May the heathen now adoring...
Page 211 - GOD of our life, thy various praise Let mortal voices sound ; Thy hand revolves our fleeting days, And brings the seasons round. 2 To thee, shall annual incense rise, Our Father and our Friend; While annual mercies from the skies In genial streams descend. 3 In every scene of life, thy care, In every age, we see ; And constant as thy favours are, So let our praises be. 4 Still may thy love, in every scene, To every age appear; And let the same compassion deign To bless the opening year.
