352 "When that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done

away. ImfTHE roseate hues of early dawn, cres Oh, for a heart that never sins! The brightness of the day,

Oh, for a soul washed white ! The crimson of the sunset sky, f Oh, for a voice to praise our King, p How fast they fade away!

Nor weary day or night! cres Oh, for the pearly gates of heaven! 3mf Here faith is ours, and heavenly hope, Oh, for the golden floor!

And grace to lead us higher; f Oh, for the Sun of Righteousness cres But there are perfectness and peace That setteth never more !

Beyond our best desire. 2 p The highest hopes we cherish here, P Oh, by Thy love and anguish, Lord, How fast they tire and faint !

Oh, by Thy life laid down, How many a spot defiles the robe cres Oh, that we fall not from Thy grace, That wraps an earthly saint !

mf Nor cast away our crown! Amen.

8,8,8,8,8,8. NEUMARK. Wer nur den lieben Gott lässt walten.

A joyful company, cres For love can easily divine

f And ever where the Master is The one Beloved's will

Shall His blest servants be !
