1 N our day of thanksgiving one psalm let us offer

1 For the saints who before us have found their reward;
When the shadow of death fell upon them, we sorrowed,

But now we rejoice that they rest in the Lord.

2 In the morning of life, and at noon, and at even,

He called them away from our worship below;
But not till His mercy and tender compassion

Had girt them with grace for the way they should go.

3 These stones that have echoed their praises are holy,

And dear is the ground where their feet have once trod;
Yet here they confessed they were strangers and pilgrims,

And still they were seeking the city of God.

4 Sing praise, then, for all who here sought and here found Him,

Whose journey is ended, whose perils are past;
They believed in the Light; and its glory is round them,
Where the clouds of earth's sorrow are lifted at last.

William H. Draper, 1894, 1910

GOD

3 God be with you till we meet again,

When life's perils thick confound you, Put His arms unfailing round you,

God be with you till we meet again.

1 MOD be with you till we meet again,

By His counsels guide, uphold you,
With His sheep securely fold you,
God be with you till we meet again.

Till we meet, till we meet,
Till we meet at Jesus' feet;

Till we meet, till we meet,
God be with you till we meet again.

2 God be with you till we meet again,

Neath His wings protecting hide you, Daily manna still divide you,

God be with you till we meet again!

+ God be with you till we meet again,

Keep love's banner floating o'er you,
Smite death's threatening wave before you,
God be with you till we meet again.

Till we meet, till we meet,
Till we meet at Jesus' feet;

Till we meet, till we meet,
God be with you till we meet again.

Jeremiah E. Rankin, 1882

1 ETERNAL Father, strong to save,

Whose arm doth bind the restless wave,
Who bidd'st the mighty ocean deep
Its own appointed limits keep:

O hear us when we cry to Thee
For those in peril on the sea!

3 O sacred Spirit, who didst brood

Upon the chaos dark and rude,
Who bad'st its angry tumult cease,
And gavest light and life and peace:

O hear us when we cry to Thee
For those in peril on the sea!

2 0 Saviour, whose almighty word

The winds and waves submissive heard,
Who walkedst on the foaming deep,
And calm amid its rage didst sleep:

O hear us when we cry to Thee
For those in peril on the sea!

4 O Trinity of love and power,

Our brethren shield in danger's hour;
From rock and tempest, fire and foe,
Protect them wheresoe'er they go;

And ever let there rise to Thec
Glad hymns of praise from land and sea.

William Whiting, 1860 (text of 1889)

3 Holy night! peaceful night!

Child of heaven, () how bright
Thou didst smile on us when Thou wast born!
Blest indeed was that happy morn;

Full of heavenly joy,
Full of heavenly joy.

Joseph Mohr, 1818, tr. Jane M. Campbell, 1863

0, a fair Rose ablooming

From tender root hath sprung, Of Jesse's lineage coming,

As men aforetime sung; It bears a Flow'ret bright,

While reigns the cold midwinter And darkest is the night,

2 The little Rose I'm singing,

Whereof Isaiah spoke,
Mary to us is bringing,

A maid of humble folk;
By God's eternal might

For us a Child she beareth,
While darkest is the night.

3 The Floweret so lowly,

Whose fragrance pone can tell,
With brightness strange and holy

Doth all our dark dispel:
True Man, true God is He;

From every ill He saveth;
God grant we saved may be!

German, xv C.; tr. the Editors, 1900
