5 Jesus calls us: by thy mercies,
Cecil Frances Alexander, 1852
THOU who didst, with love untold, Thy doubting servant chide, And bad'st the eye of sense behold Thy wounded hands and side;
2 Grant us, like him, with heartfelt awe,
And from his hour of darkness draw
3 And while that wondrous record now
O let us only lowlier bow
4 And pray that we may never dare
Emma L. Toke, 1851
WE walk by faith, and not by sight;
2 We may not touch his hands and side,
3 Help then, O Lord, our unbelief;
To call on thee when thou art near,
4 That, when our life of faith is done,
Henry Alford, 1844

CONVERSION OF ST. PAUL
WE sing the glorious conquest
2 O glory most excelling
That smote across his path!
O voice that spake within him
O love that sought and held him
3 O Wisdom ordering all things In order strong and sweet, What nobler spoil was ever
Cast at the Victor's feet? What wiser master-builder
E'er wrought at thine employ Than he, till now so furious Thy building to destroy?
4 Lord, teach thy Church the lesson,
The wrath of man can bind, And in thy boldest foeman
Thy chosen saint can find. Amen.
John Ellerton, 1871
Thine own blest dying prayer, That they who know not what they do, May in thy ransom share:
2 When foes thy Church's power defy,
Or thee, true God and Man, deny,
3 Grant that the light may round them shine; That, set from error free,
They in thy word the truth divine,
4 That so, when our brief time is done.
Henry W. Mozley, 1866

THE PRESENTATION OF CHRIST
PURIFICATION OF ST. MARY
N his temple now behold him;
Shall break forth with one accord.
2 In the arms of her who bore him,
Lo, the incarnate God most high!
3 Jesus, by thy Presentation,
Thou who didst for us endure,
Seal us with thy promise sure;
To thy Father cleansed and pure.
4 Prince and Author of salvation,
By the world thou didst redeem,
Henry J. Pye, 1851
AIL to the Lord who comes,
2 But, borne upon the throne
In her fond arms at rest:
He comes, the heavenly Guest.
3 Hail to the great First-born
Whose ransom price they pay!
The Child of man, to-day;
Who still in bondage lay.
4 O Light of all the earth,
Thy children wait for thee!
That we, from sin set free,
May all presented be! Amen.
John Ellerton, 1880
