325. 6-7, 6-7, 6-6-66.

Now thank we all our God,
With heart, and hands, and voices,
Who wondrous things hath done,
In Whom His world rejoices;
Who from our mother's arms
Hath blessed us on our way
With countless gifts of love,
And still is ours to day.

O may this bounteous God
Through all our life be near us,

With ever joyful hearts
And blessed peace to cheer us;
And keep us in His grace.

And guide us when perplexed,
And free us from all ills,
In this world and the next.

All praise and thanks to God,
The Father, now be given,

The Son, and Him Who reigns
With Them in highest heaven,
The One eternal God,

Whom earth and heaven adore,
For thus it was, is now,
And shall be evermore. Amen.

326. p- M.

Rejoice to-day with one accord,

Sing out with exultation;
Bejoice and praise our mighty Lord,
Whose Arm hath brought salvation;
His works of love proclaim
The greatness of His Name;
"For He is God alone
Who hath His mercy shewn;
Let all His saints adore Him!

When in distress to Him we cried,
He heard our sad complaining;
O trust in Him, whate'er betide,
His love is all-sustaining;
Triumphant songs of praise
To Him our hearts shall raise;
Now every voice shall say,
"O praise our God alway;"
Let all His saints adore Him!

Bejoice to-day with one accord,

Sing out with exultation; Bejoice and praise our mighty Lord, Whose Arm hath brought salvation; His works of love proclaim The greatness of His Name; For He is God alone Who hath His mercy shewn; Let all His saints adore Him! Amen.

Fair waved the golden corn
In Canaan's pleasant land,
When full of joy, some shining morn,
Went forth the reaper band.

To God so good and great
Their cheerful thanks they pour,
Then carry to His temple gate
The choicest of their store.

For Thus the Holy Word
Spoken by Moses, ran—
"The first ripe ears are for the Lord,
The rest He gives to man."

Like Israel, Lord, we give
Our earliest fruits to Thee,
And pray that, long as we shall live,
We may Thy children be.

Thine is our youthful prime,
And life and all its powers,
Be with us in our morning time,
And bless our evening hours.

In wisdom let Ub grow,

As years and strength are given,

That we may serve Thy church below,
And join Thy saints in heaven. Amen.

When His salvation bringing

To Zion, Jesus came,
The children all stood singing

Hosanna to His Name;
Nor did their zeal offend Him,

But as He rode along
He let them still attend Him,

And smiled to hear their song.

And since the Lord retaineth

His love for children still,
Though now as King He reigneth

On Zion's heavenly hill,
We'll flock around His banner

Who sits upon the Throne,
And cry aloud, "Hosanna

To David's royal Son."

For should we fail proclaiming

Our great Redeemer's praise,
The stones our silence shaming

Would their Hosannas raise;
But shall we only render

The tribute of our words?
No, while our hearts are tender

They too shall be the Lord's. Amen.

God, eternal Lord of all,
Lowly at Thy feet we fall,
All the earth doth worship Thee,
We amidst the throng would be.

All the holy angels cry,
Hail, thrice holy, God Most High!
Lord of all the heavenly powers,
Be the same loud anthem ours.

Glorified apostles raise
Night and day continual praise;
Hast Thou not a mission too
For Thy children here to do?

With Thy Prophets' goodly line
We in mystic bond combine,
For Thou hast to babes revealed
Things that to the wise were sealed.

Martyrs in a noble host
Of Thy cross are heard to boast,
Since so bright the crown they wear,
Early we Thy cross would bear.

All Thy church in heaven and earth,
Jesus! hail Thy spotless birth;
Own the God who all has made,
And the Spirit's soothing aid.
