3 There garlands of immortal joy

Shall bloom on every head;
While sorrow, sighing, and distress,

Like shadows, all are fled.
4 March on in your Redeemer's strength ;

Pursue his footsteps still ;
And let the prospect cheer your eye,

While laboring up the hill.




Praise ye the Lord."


Whose breath our souls inspired ;
Loud and more loud the anthems raise,

With grateful ardor fired.
2 Lift up to God the voice of praise,

Whose goodness, passing thought,
Loads every moment, as it flies,

With benefits unsought.
3 Lift up to God the voice of praise,

From whom salvation flows;
Who sent his Son our souls to save

From everlasting woes.
4 Lift up to God the voice of praise,

For hope's transporting ray,
Which lights through darkest shades of death

To realms of endless day.

[blocks in formation]

Spread Jesus' fame :
Tell what his love hath done;
Trust in his name alone;
Shout to his lofty throne,

“Worthy the Lamb !”
2 Hence, gloomy doubts and fears !
Dry up your mournful tears ;

Swell the glad theme:
To Christ, our gracious King,
Strike each melodious string ;
Join heart and voice to sing,

"Worthy the Lamb !”
3 Hark! how the choirs above,
Filled with the Saviour's love,

Dwell on his name!
There, too, may we be found,
With light and glory crowned,
While all the heavens resound,

“Worthy the Lamb!”

Father all glorious,
O’er all victorious,
Come, and reign over us,

Ancient of Days!
2 Come, thou incarnate Word,
Gird on thy mighty sword;

Our prayer attend :
Come, and thy people bless,
And give thy word success :
Spirit of holiness,

On us descend.
3 Come, holy Comforter,
Thy sacred witness bear

In this glad hour:
Thou, who almighty art,
Now rule in every heart,
And ne'er from us depart,

Spirit of power!


John 1 : 18.


REAK forth, ye heavens, in song!

Jehovah's praise !
Saints, clad in robes of white,
On Zion's glittering height,
Laud ye the God of might,

Ancient of Days !
2 Let star respond to star
Through firmaments afar,

Glory to God!
Earth, fling the joyful sound
Through ether's blue profound
To vocal spheres around,

Glory to God!
3 Father, in light concealed,
Christ, Light of light revealed,

Spirit Divine,
In glory streaming down
From Father and from Son,
Blest three, forever one,

All praise be thine!

Psalm 136.



ET us with a gladsome mind

Praise the Lord, for he is kind :
For his mercies shall endure

Ever faithful, ever sure.
2 He, with all-commanding might,

Filled the new-made world with light:
For his mercies shall endure,

Ever faithful, ever sure.
3 All things living he doth feed ;

His full hand supplies their need;
For his mercies shall endure,

Ever faithful, ever sure.
4 He hath, with a piteous eye,

Looked upon our misery:
For his mercies shall endure,

Ever faithful, ever sure.
5 Let us, then, with gladsome mind,

Praise the Lord, for he is kind :
For his mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

Luke 19 : 34-40.

OYFUL be the hours to-day ;

Joyful let the season be;
Let us sing, for well we may :

Jesus! we will sing of thee.
2 Should thy people silent be,

Then the very stones would sing:
What a debt we owe to thee,

Thee, our Saviour, thee our King!
3 Joyful are we now to own,

Rapture thrills us as we trace
All the deeds thy love hath done,

All the riches of thy grace.
4 Thine the Name to sinners dear!

Thine the Name all names before !
Blessed here and everywhere;

Blesséd now and evermore !
Matt. 21 : 15, 16.



God, in whom we move and live!
Children's prayers he deigns to hear ;

Children's songs delight his ear.
2 Glory to the Son we bring,

Christ our Prophet, Priest, and King !
Children! raise your sweetest strain

To the Lamb, for he was slain.
3 Glory to the Holy Ghost !

Be this day a Pentecost;
Children's minds may he inspire,-

Touch their tongues with holy fire.
4 Glory in the highest be

To the blessed Trinity !
For the gospel from above,

For the word that “ God is love.”

SING we to our God above
Praise eternal as his love ;
Praise him, all ye heavenly host-
Fatner, Son, and Holy Ghost.
