That we at length in joy may meet
Around thy throne above.
The gift of saving grace;
Fall in a fruitful place.
Of pure and heavenly root,
And yields the sweetest fruit.
The voice of sovereign love:
But mercy reigns above. 4 True, you are young, but there's a stone
Within the youngest breast,
Would rob you of your rest.
Oh ! join the public prayer;
the secret tear is shed,
The Spirit's power to teach :
That Saviour whom we preach.
No peace to the wicked.
And far from God astray,
Pursue their dreadful way.
But all their search is vain ;
And joy where sorrows reign. 3 Estranged from Thee, Thou God of peace,
What peace can sinners find ?
To lure the captive mind ?
In restless motion rage,
Unceasing warfare wage.
And guide us by thy love,
Our wandering footsteps rove.
Beholds thine anger cease,
Praise for the Sabbath. 1 AWAKE, ye saints awake! And hail this sacred day;
* Isa. lvii. 20.
In loftiest songs of praise
Your joyful homage pay;
The Lord of life arose,
And vanquish'd all our foes :
Heaven with hosannas rings ; And earth, in humbler strains, Thy praise responsive sings: 6 Worthy the Lamb that once was slain, Through endless years to live and reign !” 4. Great King! gird on thy sword,
Ascend thy conquering car,
Maintain the glorious war:
On the Sabbath. 1 This is the day the Lord hath bless’d,
The day to us in mercy given ;
The pledge and type of rest in heaven. 2 This day within thy courts, O Lord !
Thy saints delight to seek thy face,
To sing thy praises, hear thy word,
Unfold their wants, and taste thy grace. 3 May we the blest assembly join,
To God devote this sacred day;
“Look up to heaven, and learn the way!" 4 May we by every sabbath grow
In grace, humanity, and love;
The Sabbath an emblem and type of heaven. 1 AGAIN our weekly labours end,
And we the Sabbath's call attend;
Come, bless the day that God hath bless’d. 2 This day may our devotions rise
To heaven a grateful sacrifice;
Which none, but they who feel it, know ! 3 That peace of God within the breast
Is the rich foretaste of a rest,
A rest from sin, and guilt, and pains. 4 In holy duties let this day,
Heaven's type and emblem, pass away:
(c. M. EGYPT.)
And to thy courts repair;
To meet our Saviour there.
Thy presence now display:
Oh! give us hearts to pray. 3 The clouds which vail Thee from our sight,
In pity, Lord! remove:
The message of thy love.
We kneel before thy face:
(L. M. DERBY.) )
And fall before thy mercy-seat :
Within thy temple's hallow'd ground. 2 Great Shepherd of thy chosen few !
Thy former mercies here renew :
