HOLY, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty!

Early in the morning our song shall rise to Thee ;
Holy, holy, holy! merciful and mighty !
God in Three Persons, blessed Trinity!

Holy, holy, holy ! all the saints adore Thee,
Casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;
Cherubim and Seraphim falling down before Thee,
Which wert, and art, and evermore shalt be!

Holy, holy, holy! though the darkness hide Thee,
Though the eye of sinful man Thy glory may not see,
Only Thou art holy, there is none beside Thee,
Perfect in power, in love, and purity!

Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty !
All thy works shall praise Thy Name in earth and sky and sea,
Holy, holy, holy! merciful and mighty!
God in Three Persons, blessed Trinity!

94. L EAD us! Heavenly Father, lead us

, O'er the world's tempestuous sea ; Guide us, guard us, keep us, feed us,

For we have no help but Thee; Yet possessing every blessing,

If our God our Father be.

Saviour, breathe forgiveness o'er us,

All our weakness Thou dost know; Thou didst tread this earth before us,

Thou didst feel its keenest woe : Lone and dreary, faint and weary,

Through the desert Thou didst go. Spirit of our God, descending,

Fill our hearts with heavenly joy ; Love with every feeling blending,

Pleasures that can never cloy. Thus provided, pardon'd, guided,

Nothing can our peace destroy.

O

95.
GOD of life, whose power benign

Doth o'er the world in mercy shine,
Accept our praise, for we are Thine.
O Father, uncreated Lord,
Be Thou in every land adored ;
Be Thou by all with faith implored.
O Son of God, for sinners slain,
We bless Thee, Lord, whose dying pain
For us did endless life regain.
O Holy Ghost, whose guardian care
Doth us for heavenly joys prepare,
May we in Thy communion share.
O holy, blessed Trinity,
With faith we sinners bow to Thee;
In us, O God, exalted be.

FATHE
TATHER of heaven, whose love profound

A ransom for our souls hath found,
Before Thy throne we sinners bend;
To us Thy pardoning love extend.
Almighty Son, Incarnate Word,
Our Prophet, Priest, Redeemer, Lord,
Before Thy throne we sinners bend;
To us Thy saving grace extend.
Eternal Spirit, by whose breath
The soul is raised from sin and death,
Before Thy throne we sinners bend;
To us Thy quickening power extend.
Jehovah, Father, Spirit, Son,
Mysterious Godhead! Three in One!
Before Thy throne we sinners bend;
Grace, pardon, life to us extend.
