And every power find sweet employ
In that eternal world of joy.

74 (868)

C.M. S. WESLEY, JUN. L In Concert withbalho blese,

ORD of the Sabbath, Thee we praise, Who, joyful, in harmonious lays

Employ an endless rest.
2 Thus, Lord, while we remember Thee,

We blest and pious grow;
By hymns of praise we learn to be

Triumphant here below.
8 On this glad day a brighter scene

Of glory was displayed,
By God, the eternal Word, than when

This universe was made.
4 HE RISES, who mankind has bought,

With grief and pain extreme; 'Twas great to speak a world from nought;

'Twas greater to redeem ! 5 “May we, throughout this day of Thine,

Be in Thy Spirit, Lord,
Spirit of humble fear divine

That trembles at Thy word;
6 “Spirit of faith our hearts to raise,

And fix on things above;
Spirit of sacrifice and praise,

Of holiness and love."

WELCOME, sweet day of rest,
Welcome to this reviving breast,
And these rejoicing eyes !
The King Himself comes near,
And feasts His saints to-day;
Here we may sit and see Him here,

And love, and praise, and pray.

Theaterglorious Sun of Righteousness,
Shine on us now, to heal and bless,
With brighter beams than e'er before.
2 Shine on Thy work of grace within,

On each celestial blossom there;
Destroy each bitter root of sin,

And make Thy garden fresh and fair. 3 Shine on Thy pure eternal word,

Its mysteries to our souls reveal;
And whether read, remembered, heard,

O let it quicken, strengthen, heal.
4 Shine on the temples of Thy grace;

With righteousness Thy priests be clad;
Unveil the brightness of Thy face;

And make Thy chosen people glad. 5 Shine, till Thy glorious beams shall chase

The brooding cloud from every eye!
Till every earthly dwelling-place
Shall hail the Day-spring from on high!
6 Shine on, shine on, Eternal Sun!
Pour richer floods of life and light;
Till that bright Sabbath be begun,-

That glorious day which knows no night. 78


Psalm v.
LORD Voin the morning. Thou shalt hear
To Thee will I direct my prayer,

To Thee lift up mine eye :-
2 Up to the hills, where Christ is gone,

To plead for all His saints,
Presenting at His Father's throne

Our songs and our complaints.
