ORD of the worlds above,
How pleasant and how fair
The dwellings of Thy love,
Thine earthly temples are
To Thine abode
My heart aspires,
With warm desires,
To see my God.
2 O happy souls that pray,
Where God appoints to hear!
O happy men that pay
Their constant service there !
They praise Thee still;
And happy they
That love the way
To Zion's hill.
3 They go from strength to strength,
Through this dark vale of tears,
Till each arrives at length,
Till each in heaven appears.
O glorious seat,
When God our King
Shall thither bring
Our willing feet!
4 God is our sun and shield,
Our light and our defence;
With gifts His hands are filled,
We draw our blessings thence:
He shall bestow
On Jacob's race
His special grace
And glory too.
RATEFUL notes and numbers bring,
While Jehovah's praise we sing:
Holy, holy, holy Lord,
Be Thy glorious name adored
Though unworthy of Thine ear,
Still our hallelujahs hear:
Purer praise we hope to bring,
When with saints above we sing.
Lead us to that blissful state
Where Thou reign'st supremely great;
Look with pity from Thy throne,
Send Thy Holy Spirit down.
While on earth ordained to stay,
Guide our footsteps in the way;
Till we come to reign with Thee,
And Thy glorious greatness see.
Then in joyful songs of praise
We'll our grateful voices raise:
Lord, Thy mercies never fail;
Hail, Celestial Goodness, hail!
OME, let us join our cheerful songs
C With angels round the throne:
Ten thousand thousand are their tongues,
But all their joys are one.
3 Jesus is worthy to receive
Honour and power divine;
And blessings more than we can give
Be, Lord, for ever Thine !
4 Let all creation join in one,
To bless the sacred name
Of Him that sits upon the throne,
And to adore the Lamb
E servants of God, your Master proclaim,
And publish abroad His wonderful name;
The name all-victorious of Jesus extol;
His kingdom is glorious, and rules over all.
2 God ruleth on high, almighty to save ;
And still He is nigh, His presence we have ;
The great congregation His triumph shall sing,
Ascribing salvation to Jesus our King.
3 Salvation to God, who sits on the throne,
Let all cry aloud, and honour the Son;
Our Saviour's great praises the angels proclaim,
Fall down on their faces, and worship the Lamb.
4. Then let us adore, and give Him His right, All glory, and power, and wisdom, and might; All honour and blessing, with angels above, And thanks never-ceasing for infinite love.
ORD, dismiss us with Thy blessing,
Fill our hearts with joy and peace;
Let us each, Thy love possessing, -
Triumph in redeeming grace;
O refresh us,
Travelling through this wilderness.
2 Thanks we give and adoration
For Thy gospel's joyful sound;
May the fruits of Thy salvation
In our hearts and lives abound ;
May Thy presence
With us evermore be found.
3 So whene'er the signal's given,
Us from earth to call away,
Borne on angels' wings to heaven,
Glad the summons to obey,
May we ever
Reign with Christ in endless day.
48 Y God, and is Thy table spread, | And doth Thy cup with love o'erflow Thither be all Thy children led, And let them all its sweetness know.
2 Hail, sacred feast, which Jesus makes,
Rich banquet of His flesh and blood!
Thrice happy he who here partakes
That sacred stream, that heavenly food.
3 O let Thy table honoured be,
And furnished well with joyful guests:
And may each soul salvation see,
That here its sacred pledges tastes.
READ of Heaven on Thee we feed,
For Thy flesh is meat indeed;
Ever let our souls be fed
With this true and living bread.
2 Lord of Heaven Thy wounded side
Hath this blessed cup supplied;
Pardon in Thy cross we see;
May Thy stripes our healing be.
3 Mighty Saviour ! risen Lord '
Day by day Thy strength afford;
Jesus, let us ever be
Rooted, grafted, built on Thee.
