7 Cheerful they walk with growing strength, Till all shall meet in heaven at length; Till all before Thy face appear,
And join in nobler worship there.
GRACE AND GLORY.
1 GREAT God attend, while Zion sings
2 Might I enjoy the meanest place
4 All needful grace will God bestow,
5 O God, our King, Thy sovereign sway,
Blessed is the man that trusts in Thee!
LONGING FOR THE HOUSE OF GOD.
1 LORD of the worlds above,
To Thine abode,
With warm desires
My heart aspires, To see my God.
2 The sparrow for her young
My spirit faints
With equal zeal,
To rise and dwell
Among Thy saints.
3 O happy souls that pray
Where God appoints to hear!
Their constant service there!
They praise Thee still
And happy they,
That love the way
To Zion's hill.
4 They go from strength to strength,
Till each in heaven appears.
O glorious seat,
Shall thither bring
When God our King | Our willing feet!
5 To spend one sacred day,
Where God and saints abide,
Affords diviner joy,
Than thousand days beside:
Where God resorts, To keep the door, Than shine in courts.
I covet more
6 God is our sun and shield,
Our light and our defence;
He shall bestow
7 The Lord His people loves;
His hand no good withholds
THE SPIRIT ACKNOWLEDGED AND DESIRED.
1 LORD, Thou hast called Thy grace to mind,
And brought His wandering captives home.
2 Thou hast begun to set us free,
And made Thy fiercest wrath abate:
3 Revive our dying graces, Lord,
And let Thy saints in Thee rejoice:
SALVATION BY CHRIST.
1 SALVATION is for ever nigh,
The souls that fear and trust the Lord;
2 Mercy and truth on earth are met,
Since Christ the Lord came down from heaven: By His obedience so complete,
Justice is pleased, and peace is given.
3 Now truth and honour shall abound;
And heavenly influence bless the ground,
4 His righteousness is gone before,
MAJESTY AND GRACE OF GOD.
1 AMONG the princes, earthly gods,
3 Lord, I would walk with holy feet:
4 Great is Thy mercy, and my tongue
PLEADING FOR EVIDENCE OF AN INTEREST IN CHRIST.
1 JESUS, my God, my all in all,
Display Thy power, unveil Thy face; Wilt Thou not hear when sinners call? Is not Thy reign, a reign of grace? 2 A thousand times my tongue hath said, "Bought with a price, I'm not my own;" A thousand times my soul hath fled, And sought relief before Thy throne.
3 But now I grope, as in the night;
I can't believe, and dare not trust:
My path is hedged, I see no light,
My hopes are prostrate in the dust. 4 With fears that all experience past
Hath been delusive, false and vain,
I never shall the prize obtain.
6 Striving to stretch my withered arms,
7 Oh! if already I've believed,
If Christ and I indeed be one:
8 Show me a token, Lord, for good,
And let me know that I am Thine;
Bear witness to my troubled heart;
10 Then shall my foes, who hate me, see
THE CHURCH, THE BIRTH PLACE OF THE SAINTS.
1 GOD in His earthly temples lays
Foundations for His heavenly praise;
