2 While our days on earth are lengthened, May we give them, Lord, to Thee; Cheered by hope, and daily strengthened, May we run, nor weary be,
Till Thy glory
Without clouds in Heaven we see.
3 There in worship purer, sweeter, Thee Thy people shall adore; Tasting of enjoyment greater
Far than thought conceived before;
Full, unmixed, and evermore.
Rev. Thomas Kelly (1769-1855), 1815.

3 So, whene'er the signal's given
May we ever
Reign with Christ in endless day.

I WHEN, streaming from the eastern skies,
2 And when to Heaven's all-glorious King My morning sacrifice I bring,

My conflicts o'er, my labors done,
William Shrubsole, Jr. (1759—1829), 1813. Ab, and ait.

I COME, Thou Almighty King,
2 Jesus, our Lord, arise; Scatter our enemies,
And make them fall;
3 Come, Thou Incarnate Word,
4 Come, Holy Comforter,

Hence, evermore. His Sovereign Majesty May we in glory see, And to eternity
Love and adore.

L. M. "Christ always with His people." I JESUS, where'er Thy people meet, There they behold Thy Mercy-seat; Where'er they seek Thee, Thou art found, And every place is hallowed ground.
2 For Thou, within no walls confined, Inhabitest the humble mind;
Such ever bring Thee where they come, And, going, take Thee to their home.
3 Dear Shepherd of Thy chosen few,
4 Here may we prove the power of prayer

I WHILE now the daylight fills the sky,
Would keep us free from harm to-day.

The Love of God shed abroad in the Heart.-EPH. iii. 16.

2 Come, fill our hearts with inward strength;
3 Now to the God, whose power can do More than our thoughts or wishes know, Be everlasting honors done,
By all the church, thro' Christ, His Son.

And own how dreadful is this place; Let all within us feel His power, And silent bow before His face.

3 Lord God of hosts, O may our praise Thy courts with grateful incense fill ;
