in Advent. 3 Though men your hope deride,
Nor will themselves believe;
Who never can deceive;
The saints shall see a glorious day.
A bright abode on high;
And nought is known but joy:
Joyful times are near at hand;
Mark his progress;
Darkness flies at his command. me 2 Let us hail the joyful season,
Let us hail the rising ray:
At his presence
To our hearts, to hear each day
Let thy people see thy hand;
C. M. Christ's peaceful reign.
Isa. ii, 1-5.
In latter days shall rise
And draw our wond'ring eyes. 2[To this the joyful nations round,
All lands and tongues, shall flow: “Up to the hill of God,” they'll cry,
“And to his house we'll go.”]
Shall lighten ev'ry land;
Shall the whole world command.
in Advent. 4 No strife shall wound Messiah's reign,
Or mar the peaceful years;
To pruning hooks their spears.
Their millions slain deplore;
The war-note sounds no more!
To worship at his shrine;
With peace and glory shine!
Christ's second coming.
Rev. xi, 15-17. 1 HE COMES ! He comes ! the Judge on high !
The seventh trumpet speaks Him nigh;
See the Almighty Jesus crown'd!
And glory decks the Saviour's face.
And all ye saints of God most high !
2nd Sunday in Advent.
L. M. Christ's glorious advent.
Luke xxi, 25-27. Rev. vi, 15-17. 1 THE Lord will come! the earth shall quake,
The hills their fixed seat forsake;
The stars withdraw their feeble light.
The bruis'd, the suff'ring, and the dead.
On cherub wings, and wings of wind,
Anointed Judge of human-kind!
A pilgrim on the world's highway,
in Advent. 5 While sinners to the rocks complain,
And seek the mountain's cleft in vain;
John v, 39. Rom. xv, 4.
What endless glory shines !
For these celestial lines.
To cheer the fainting mind;
And sweet refreshment find.
United, rend the heart,
That springs from human art:]
Spreads heav'nly peace around;
Attend the blissful sound.
