SERVANTS of God, awake To hail this sacred day, And in glad songs of praise Your grateful homage pay; Come, bless the day that God hath blest, The type of heaven's eternal rest.
2 Upon this happy morn
The Lord of life arose;
And vanquished all our foes;
3 All hail! triumphant Lord!
Heaven with hosannas rings,
Thy praise responsive sings; Worthy the Lamb that once was slain, Through endless years to live and reign!
ERE another Sabbath's close,
2 For the mercies of the day,
3 Cold our services have been,
4 Whilst this thorny path we tread,
5 Let these earthly Sabbaths prove
SOON, too soon, the sweet repose
Vanish soon these hours of peace;
But the rest which yet remains
Knows nor change, nor fears, nor pains-
O may every Sabbath here
Bring us to that rest more near!
O SAVIOUR, bless us ere we go;
With lowly love and fervent will:
2 The day is gone, its hours have run,
And Thou hast taken count of all, The scanty triumphs grace hath won,
The broken vow, the frequent fall: Through life's long day and death's dark night, O blessed Jesus, be our Light.
3 Grant us, dear Lord, from evil ways
True absolution and release;
With purity and inward peace:
4 Do more than pardon; give us joy,
Sweet fear, and sober liberty, And simple hearts without alloy
That only long to be like Thee: Through life's long day and death's dark night, O blessed Jesus, be our Light.
5 Labour is sweet, for Thou hast toiled;
And care is light, for Thou hast cared; O never let our works be soiled
With strife, or by deceit ensnared: Through life's long day and death's dark night, O blessed Jesus, be our Light.
For all we love, the poor, the sad,
The sinful, unto Thee we call;
Thou art our Saviour, and our all:
JESUS, where'er Thy people meet
2 For Thou, within no walls confined,
Such ever bring Thee where they come,
3 Great Shepherd of Thy faithful few I
4 Now may we prove the power of prayer,
To teach our faint desires to rise,
5 Lord, we are weak, but Thou art near;
POUR down Thy Spirit, gracious Lord,
2 By faith in Thee the soul receives •
New life, though dead before;
3 Preserve the power of faith alive
In those that love Thy name;
4 Thy grace and mercy first prevailed
From death to set us free;
5 To Thee we look, to Thee we bow,
To Thee for help we call;
IN Thy presence we appear;
While to Thee our prayers ascend,
