1906 PSALM xcvi. 7. (Bible Version.) Give unto the LORD, O ye kindreds of the people, give unto the LORD glory and strength.

6. Honour and majesty are before Him : strength and beauty are in His sanctuary.

xlviii. 8. We wait for Thy loving-kindness, O LORD, in the midst of Thy temple.

xciii. 6. Holiness becometh Thine house for ever.

xcvi. 7. Give unto the LORD, O ye kindreds of the people, give unto the LORD glory and strength.

Here vouchsafe to all Thy servants

What they ask of Thee to gain,
What they gain from Thee for ever

With the blessed to retain.

Here vouchsafe to all Thy servants

What they ask of Thee to gain,
And to Paradise translated,

There in rest with Thee to reign.

Glory to our GOD, and honour;

Highest He above all heights:
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,

One in praise, and One in might,
Might and praise enduring ever,
In the changeless worlds of light. Amen.

1. Ye holy angels bright,

Who wait at God's right hand,
Or through the realms of light
Fly at your Lord's command,

Assist our song,
Or else the theme
Too high doth seem

For mortal tongue.
2. Ye blessèd souls at rest,

Who ran this earthly race,
And now, from sin released,
Behold the Saviour's Face,

His praises sound,
As in His light
With sweet delight

Ye do abound.
3. Ye saints, who toil below,

Adore your heavenly King,
And onward as ye go
Some joyful anthem sing;

Take what He gives
And praise Him still,
Through good and ill,

Who ever lives!
4. My soul, bear thou thy part,

Triumph in God above,
And with a well-tuned heart
Sing thou the songs of love!

Let all thy days
Till life shall end,
Whate'er He send,
Be filled with praise. RICHARDS.

1909
Cleanse me, LORD, that I may kneel

At Thine altar, pure and white,
They that once Thy mercies feel,

Gaze no more on earth's delights.
Worldly joys like shadows fade

When the heavenly light appears,
But the covenants that Thou hast made

Endless, know nor days nor years.
In Thy Word, LORD, is my trust,

To Thy mercies fast I fly,
Though I am but clay and dust,
Yet Thy grace can lift me high.

The Son of God in low estate,

Come, and adore Him, CHRIST the LORD.
Bright beams above the guiding star,
Its heavenly radiance spreads afar,
Emmanuel, we come to worship Thee,
Our LORD and King.

O'er this dark world of sin and woe,
Its beams still shine with heavenly glow,
Redeemed and free our song shall be
From all the ransomed world
For evermore. Amen.
