God is our hope and strength. Psalm xlvi. 1.
In him undaunted we'll confide,
Torn piecemeal by the roaring tide.
The royal seat of God most high.
While his Almighty aid is nigh. Submit to God's all-gracious sway; For him the heathen shall obey,
And earth her Sov'reign Lord confess : The God of Hosts conducts our arms, Our tow'r of refuge in alarms,
As to our fathers in distress.
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for. Heb. xi. 1.
Give me the wings of faith, to rise
Within the veil, and see
How bright their glories be.
Once they were mourning here below,
And wet their couch with tears ;
With sins, and doubts, and fears.
They mark'd the way our Saviour trod,
His spirit fill'd their breast;
They reach'd the promis'd rest.
Our glorious Leader we will praise,
For his own pattern giv'n;
We'll walk the path to heav'n.
Guide us, O thou great Jehovah !
Pilgrims through this barren land; We are weak, but thou art mighty;
Hold us with thy pow'rful hand. Bread of heaven, feed us till we want no more.
Open thou the living fountain,
Whence the healing waters flow; Let the fiery clouded pillar
Lead us all our journey through. Strong Deliv'rer! be thou still our strength and
When we tread the verge of Jordan,
Bid our anxious fears subside;
Land us safe on Canaan's side.
The spirit of the Lord God is upon me. Is. Ixi. 1. HARK ! the glad sound, the Saviour comes,
The Saviour promis'd long ; Let ev'ry heart prepare a throne,
And ev'ry voice a song.
He comes, the pris’ners to release,
In Satan's bondage held ;
The iron fetters yield.
He comes, to bind the broken heart,
To make the wounded whole; To preach glad tidings to the meek,
And bless the humble soul.
Our glad hosannas, Prince of Peace,
Thy welcome shall proclaim ; And heav'ns eternal arches ring With thy beloved name.
Suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host.
Luke ii. 13.
Joyful all ye nations rise,
Hail the heav'n-born Prince of Peace;
Mild he lays his glory by, .
