2 Great Prophet of my God,

My tongue would bless thy name:
By thee the joyful news

Of our salvation came —
The joyful news of sins forgiven,
Of death subdued, and peace with heaven.
3 Be thou my Counsellor,

My patron and my guide,
And through this desert land

Still keep me near thy side.
O let my feet ne'er run astray,
Nor rove nor seek the crooked way.
4 I love my Shepherd's voice,

His watchful eyes shall keep
My wandering soul among

The thousands of his sheep;
He feeds his flock, he calls their names,
His bosom bears the tender lambs.
5 My Master and my Lord,

My Conqueror and my King,
Thy sceptre, and thy sword,

Thy reigning grace, I sing..
Thine is the power; behold, I sit
In willing bonds beneath thy feet.

1 A KING shall reign in righteousness,

And all the kindred nations bless;
He's King of Salem, King of peace,

Nor shall his spreading kingdom cease. 2 In him the naked soul shall find

A hiding-place from chilling wind;
Or, when the raging tempests beat,
A covert

3 In burning sands and thirsty ground,

He like a river shall be found,
Or lofty rock, beneath whose shade

The weary traveller rests his head.
4 The dimness gone, all eyes shall see

His glory, grace, and majesty ;.
All ears shall hearken, and obtain
The words of life from Christ the Lamb.

ANONYMOUS. Christ the way, the Truth, and the Life. 1 Thou art the Way — to thee alone

From sin and death we flee;
And he who would the Father seek,

Must seek him, Lord, by thee.
% Thou art the Truth — thy word alone

True wisdom can impart;
Thou only canst inform the mind,

And purify the heart.
3 Thou art the Life - the rending tomb

Proclaims thy conquering arm,
And those who put their trust in thee

Nor death nor hell shall harm. 4 Thou art the Way, the Truth, the Life;

Grant us that way to know,
That truth to keep, that life to taste,

Whose joys eternal flow.

By thee must come,

thou Gate of love, Through which the saints undoubting trod; Till farth discovers, like the dove,

An ark, a resting-place in God.
2 Thou art the Truth — whose steady day

Shines on through earthly light and bloom;
The pure, the everlasting ray,
The lamp that shines e’en in the tomb;
The light that out of darkness springs,
And guideth those that blindly go ;
The word whose precious radiancé flings

Its lustre upou all below.
3 Thou art the Life - the blessed Well,

With living waters gushing o'er,
Which those that drink shall ever dwell
Where sin and thirst are known no more.
Thou art the mystic pillar given,
Our lamp by night, our light by day;
Thou art the sacred bread from heaven;
Thou art the Life — the Truth — the Way.
