3 The noble and victorious host
Of Martyrs make of Thee their boast;
Throughout the earth exalts Thy praise. 4 From day to day, O Lord, do we
Highly exalt and honour Thee:
World without end, for evermore.
To keep us safe from sin this day:
1 Be still ! be still ! for all around,
On either hand, is holy ground:
Will listen, while His people pray. 2 Thou, tost upon the waves of care,
Ready to sink with deep despair,
And thou shalt find that God is here. 3 Thou, who hast laid within the grave
Those whom thou hadst no power to save,
4 Thou, who hast dear ones far away,
In foreign lands, 'mid ocean's spray,
And trust the God who listens here. 5 Thou, who art mourning o'er thy sin,
Deploring guilt that reigns within,
1 Almighty God! in humble prayer
To Thee our souls we lift,
For Thy most needful gift i 2 We ask not golden streams of wealth
Along our path to flow;
Nor length of years below. 3 We ask not honours, which an hour
May bring or take away;
Lest we should go astray ! 4 We ask for Wisdom :-Lord ! impart
The knowledge how to live;
To all before Thee give.
5 The young remember Thee in youth,
Before the evil days !
In Wisdom's pleasant ways!
1 What shall we ask of God in prayer ?
Whatever good we want;
And God in mercy grant.
In whom we move and live!
And answer, and forgive. 3 When, harassed by ten thousand foes,
Our helplessness we feel ;
The wounded spirit heal. 4 When dire temptations gather round,
And threaten or allure,
A refuge strong and sure.
In faith, and hope, and love
To holiness above.
1 Assembled in Thy house of prayer,
On every mind instruction seal; Preacher and people, Lord, prepare
To seek Thy face, Thy presence feel.
2 From earthen vessels we receive
The living streams of truth divine; The spirit with the letter give,
And turn the water into wine.
3 Enter we now Thy gates with praise,
With reverence at Thine altar bend, With gladness our thanksgivings raise,
With meekness to Thy word attend. 4 So, when the Gospel, in Thy name,
From human lips salutes our ear, May our responding hearts exclaim,
Speak to us, Lord ! thy servants hear.” 5 Paul then may plant the precious grain,
For Thine will be the quickening power; Apollos water, not in vain,
For Thou wilt give the genial shower. 6 The scattered seed thus sown in hope
Shall spring and spread with large increase, And yield on earth a heavenly crop
Of love, joy, righteousness, and peace.
1 Yea, I will extol Thee,
Lord of life and light!
Turned my foes to flight:
Thou wert swift to hear ;
Deliver me from fear.
Call His love to mind,
But for ever kind:
Through the night sojourn,
With the sun return.
Arise, and bless the Lord,
Ye people of His choice;
With heart, and soul, and voice.
Above all blessing high,
And laud and magnify?
