Lift up your hearts, lift up your voice :

Rejoice, again I say, rejoice.
2 Jesus, the Saviour reigns,

The God of truth and love;
When He had purged our stains,

He took His seat above :
Lift up your hearts, lift up your voice :

Rejoice, again I say, rejoice.
3 His kingdom cannot fail :

He rules o'er earth and heaven:
The keys of death and hell

To Christ the Lord are given :
Lift up your hearts, lift up your voice :
Rejoice, again I say, rejoice.

He sits at God's right hand,

Till all His foes submit,
And bow to His command,

And fall beneath His feet :
Lift up your hearts, lift up your voice :
Rejoice, again I say, rejoice.

1 SPIRIT of truth! on this Thy day

D To Thee for help we cry,
To guide us through the dreary way

Of dark mortality!
2 We ask not, Lord, Thy cloven flame,

Or tongues of various tone;
But long Thy praises to proclaim

With fervour in our own.

3 We mourn not that prophetic skill

Is found on earth no more ;
Enough for us to trace Thy will

In Scripture's sacred lore.
4 When tongues shall cease, and power decay,

And knowledge empty prove,
Do Thou Thy trembling servants stay

With faith, with hope, with love !

50

. L. M. 1 PIRIT of mercy, truth, and love,

D O shed Thy influence from above ;
. And still from age to age convey

The wonders of this sacred day.
2 In every clime, by every tongue,

Be God's surpassing glory sung :
Let all the listening earth be taught

The wonders by the Saviour wrought.
3 Blest Comforter and heavenly Guide,

Still with the Church of Christ abide ;
Still let our souls Thy blessings prove,
Spirit of mercy, truth, and love.

P. M. 1 NOME, Holy Ghost, our souls inspire,

U And lighten with celestial fire !
Thou the anointing Spirit art,
Who dost Thy sevenfold gifts impart:
Thy blessed unction from above
Is comfort, life, and fire of love.

2 Enable with perpetual light

The dulness of our blinded sight;
Anoint and cheer our soiled face
With the abundance of Thy grace ;
Keep far our foes, give peace at home :

Where Thou art Guide, no ill can come.
3 Teach us to know the Father, Son,

And Thee, of both, to be but One ;
That through the ages all along,
This may be our endless song:
Praise to Thine eternal merit,
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit !

[ocr errors][ocr errors]

1 NOME, Holy Ghost, eternal God !

U Proceeding from above,
Both from the Father and the Son,

The God of peace and love. 2 Visit our souls, into our hearts

Thy heavenly grace inspire,
That truth and godliness we may

Pursue with full desire.
3 Thou art the very Comforter

In grief and all distress;
The heavenly gift of God most high,

No tongue can it express.
4 O Holy Ghost, into our minds

Send down Thy heavenly light;
Kindle our hearts with fervent zeal,

To serve God day and night.

L. M. 1 NOME, gracious Spirit, heavenly Dove,

U With light and comfort from above!
Be Thou our Guardian, Thou our Guide,

O’er every thought and step preside.
2 The light of truth to us display,

And make us know and choose Thy way;
Plant holy fear in every heart,

That we from God may ne'er depart. 3 Lead us to holiness, the road

That we must take to dwell with God;
Lead us to Christ, the living Way,

Nor let us from Him ever stray. 4 Lead us to God, our only rest,

To be with Him for ever blest :
Lead us to heaven, that we may share
Fulness of joy for ever there.

TRINITY SUNDAY. 54

L. M.
1 TATHER of heaven, whose love profound
T A ransom for our souls hath found,
Before Thy throne we sinners bend;

To us Thy pardoning love extend. 2 Almighty Son, incarnate Word,

Our Prophet, Priest, Redeemer, Lord,
Before Thy throne we sinners bend;
To us Thy saving grace extend.

3 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.

4 Jehovah, Father, Spirit, Son,
Mysterious Godhead! Three in One!
Before Thy throne we sinners bend;
Grace, pardon, life, to us extend.

148th M. W E give immortal praise

W To God the Father's love,
For all our comforts here,

And better hopes above;
He sent His own eternal Son
To die for sins that man had done.

[ocr errors]

To God the Son belongs

Immortal glory too,
Who bought us with His blood

From everlasting woe;
And now He lives, and now He reigns,
And sees the fruit of all His pains.

3

To God the Spirits Name

Immortal worship give,
Whose new-creating power

Makes the dead sinner live ;
His work completes the great design,
And fills the soul with joy divine.
