Thou hast wondrous power to save; Grant us grace, and still protect us,
:Over life's tempestuous wave. 2 May our souls, with sacred transport,
View the dawn while yet afar; And, until the sun arises,
'Lead us by the Morning Star. 3 See the happy spirits waiting
On the banks beyond the stream;
Jesus, Jesus is their theme,
Seraphs lend your glittering wings;
· Heavenly sounds around us ring.
Far above yon azure sky;
We'll enjoy you soon on high. 624 7s, 6s & 7s. BURST, ye emerald gates, and bring
To our raptured vision,
Round the bright elysian:

do se 625 W E sing of the realms of the blest,
Of that country so bright and so fair, And oft are its glories confessed!
But what must it be to be there! 2 We sing of its pathways of gold, And its walls decked with jewels most
Of its wonders and pleasures untold!
But what must it be to be there! 3 We sing of its freedom from sin,
From sorrow, temptation, and care; From trials without and within ;
But what must it be to be there! 4 We sing of its service of love,
Of the robes which the glorified wear; Of the church of the first-born above;
But what must it be to be there! 5 Then Saviour, 'midst pleasure and woe,
Still for heaven' our spirits prepare; And shortly we also shall know,
"And feel what it is to be there! 626 8$, 7 & 4s.
HALLELUJAH! best and sweetest
This ye utter, While your golden harps ye move. 2 Hallelujah! Church victorious,
Join the concert of the sky!
We, poor exiles,
Comfort not the faint and worn; .
4 But our earnest supplication,-.
Holy God! we raise to thee;
1 So, Jesus ! let it be;
Absent from thee we roam;
A day's march nearer home. 3 “For ever with the Lord!”
Saviour, if 'tis thy will
E’en here to us fulfil.
Shall rend the veil in twain,
And life eternal gain.
How shall we love that word,,.
“For ever with the Lord !” . 628 P. M.
THERE is a happy land, far, far away, 1 Where saints in glory stand, bright,
bright as day.
0, how they sweetly sing,
Praise, praise for aye.” 2 Come to that happy land, come, come
away; Why will we doubting stand, why still
delay! O, we shall happy be, • When from sin and sorrow free! Lord, we shall live with thee,
Blest, blest for aye. 3 Bright in that happy land, beams every
eye; Kept by a Father's hand, love cannot die.
0, then to glory run;
Reign, reign for aye.

NO shadows yonder!
And say, How long
From that dear throng? 2 No weeping yonder!
All fled away; .
Each weary day,
Our long, long stay.
