3 No partings yonder!

Time and space never
Again shall sunder;

Hearts cannot sever;
Dearer and fonder

Hands clasp for ever. 4 None wanting yonder,

Bought by the Lamb!
All gathered under

The evergreen palm;
Loud as night's thunder

Ascends the glad psalm.

EARTH is past away and gone,

All her glories, every one,
All her


is broken dowo;
God is reigning, God alone!
2 All her high ones lowly lie,

All her mirth bath passed by,
All her merry-hearted sigh;

God is reigning, God on high!
3 No more sorrow, no more night;

Perfect joy, and purest light!
With his spotless saints and bright,

God is reigning in the height!
4 Blessing, praise, and glory bring,

Offer every holy thing;
Everlasting praises sing;
God is reigning, God our King!

And sing thy power divine! 2 Thus may our joys increase,

While rich supplies of Jesus' grace

Refresh our souls below. 3 But, 0, the bliss sublime,

When joy shall be complete,
In that unclouded, glorious clime

Which from other sources flow. 3 Till we leave this world for ever,

May we live beneath thine eye;
This our aim, our sole endeavour, at

Thine to live, and thine to die.

Hope more bright of joys to come;

And when dying,
May thy presence cheer. the gloom.

ALMIGHTY God, thy word is cast,

Like seed into the ground;
Now let the dew of heaven descend,

And righteous fruits abound.
2 Let not the foe of Christ and man

This holy seed remove;
But give it root in every heart,

To bring forth fruits of love.
3 Let not the world's deceitful cares

The rising plant destroy; But let it yield, a hundred-fold,

The fruits of peace and joy. 4 Oft as the precious seed is sown,

Thy quickening grace bestow, That all, whose souls the truth receive,

Its saving power may know.

BY faith may Jesus dwell

In our believing hearts;
While he that love which none can tell,

In streams of grace imparts.
2 Then may we comprehend,

With all the saints in light,
And see his boundless grace extend,

And know its depth and height.
3 Then, filled with every grace,

From strength to strength we'll go,
While Jesus shows his smiling face

In every scene of woe.
· 4 Soon we shall victors to be,

And crowns of glory wear; :) In endless peace our Captain see, · And dwell for ever there. 1.

Inspire us to fulfil.

Which thy word's designed to give; !

Joyfully the truth receive;

And for ever
To thy praise and glory live,
