The whole triumphant host
Give thanks to God on high ;
Hail, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,

They ever cry :
Hail, Abraham's God and mine,
I join the heavenly lays ;
All might and majesty be Thine,

And endless praise.

TRANSLATIONS FROM THE GERMAN.

BY WESLEY AND OTHERS.

[ocr errors][graphic]

HOU hidden Love of God, whose height,

Whose depth unfathom’d, no man knows

I see from far Thy beauteous light,
Inly I sigh for Thy repose :
My heart is pain’d, nor can it be
At rest, 'till it finds rest in Thee.

Thy secret voice invites me still

The sweetness of Thy yoke to prove ;
And fain I would: but tho' my will

Seem fix’d, yet wide my passions rove;
Yet hindrances strew all the way;
I aim at Thee, yet from Thee stray.
