3 Approach his royal board,
In his rich garments clad;

This is the day which the Lord hath made: we will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm exviii. 24.
HE day of Christ, the day of God,
We humbly hope with joy to see,
Wash'd in the sanctifying blood
2 He did for us his life resign!
3 Spotless, sincere, without offence, O may we to his day remain! Who trust the blood of Christ, to cleanse Our souls from every sinful stain. 4 Lord, we believe the promise sure; The purchas'd Comforter impart! Apply thy blood to make us pure, To keep us pure in life and heart! 5 Then let us see that day supreme,
When none thy Godhead shall deny, Thy sovereign majesty blaspheme, Ör count thee less than the Most Highs. 6 When all who in their God believe, Who hear thy last appearing love, Shall thy consummate joy receive, And see thy glorious face above.

Surely the Lord is in this place. Gen. xxviii. 16:
1LO! God is here! let us adore,
And own how dreadful is this place! Let all within us feel his power, And silent bow before his face! Who know his power, his grace who prove, Serve him with awe, with rev'rence love. 2 Lo! God is here! him day and night The united choirs of angels sing: To him, enthron'd above all height,
Heaven's hosts their noblest praises bring; Disdain not, Lord, our meaner song, Who praise thee with a stamm'ring tongue. 3 Gladly the toys of earth we leave,
Wealth, pleasure, fame, for thee alone;
O take! O seal them for thine own!
Thy courts with grateful fragrance fill;
5 As flowers their op'ning leaves display,

And talk of all thy truth by night.

And every power find sweet employ,
