Thine eyes
shall see the King in His beauty; they shall behold the land that

is very far off."
1mf THE sands of time are sinking ; mf I stand upon His merit,
The dawn of heaven breaks;

I know no other stand,
The summer morn I've sighed for, cres Not even where glory dwelleth,
The fair, sweet morn, awakes.

p In Immanuel's land. p Dark, dark hath been the midnight;

mf But dayspring is at hand, 4mf The bride eyes not her garment, res And glory-glory dwelleth

But her dear bridegroom's face: p In Immanuel's land.

I will not gaze at glory,

But on my King of grace;
Oh! Christ, He is the fountain,

Not at the crown He gifteth,
The deep, sweet well, of love;

But on His pierced hand:
The streams on earth I've tasted, cres The Lamb is all the glory
More deep I'll drink above:

P Of Immanuel's land. res There to an ocean fulness His mercy doth expand,

5 mf With mercy and with judgment f And glory-glory dwelleth

My web of time He wove, p In Immanuel's land.

p And aye the dews of sorrow

Were lustred by His love; f Oh, I am my Belovėd's,

mf I'll bless the hand that guided, And my Beloved's mine!

I'll bless the heart that planned, P He brings a poor vile sinner

cres When throned where glory dwelleth, Into His "house of wine;"

f In Immanuel's land. Amen.

All worthy of her Lord: [comes From every weeping eye; (fears, See all things now at last renewed, And pains and groans, and griefs and And Paradise restored !

When earth and seas are fled, Hedwells with men; His people, they, And hear the Judge pronounce our And He, His people's God.

THE BLESSED HOME(2nd Tune). 6,6,6,6. D. John Stainer, Mus. Doc

[ocr errors]

413 'His servants shall serve Him, and they shall sec His face. Imf THERE is a blessed home

3 P O joy, all joys beyond !
Beyond this land of woe,

To see the Lamb who died,
Where trials never come,

And count each sacred wound
Nor tears of sorrow flow ;

In hands and feet and side ; wres Where faith is lost in sight,

cres To give to Him the praise And patient hope is crowned,

Of every triumph won, f And everlasting light

f And sing through endless days Its glory throws around.

The great things He hath done. 2° There is a land of peace ;

4mf Look up, ye saints of God, Good angels know it well ;

Nor fear to tread below cres Glad songs that never cease

dim The path your Saviour trod Within its portals swell ;

p Of daily toil and woe: s Around its glorious throne

Wait but a little while
'Ten thousand saints adore

In uncomplaining love,
Christ, with the Father one,

cres His own most gracious smile
And Spirit, evermore.

f Shall welcome you above. Amen.



Rev. J. B. Dykes, Mus. Doc.

(See also " Burton Agnes," No. 50.) 414 “The Lord, thy God, bringeth thee into a good land." Ä F THERE is a land of pure delight, 4 p But timorous mortals start, and shrink Where saints immortal reign;

To cross this narrow sea,
Infinite day excludes the night,

And linger, shivering on the brink,
And pleasures banish pain.

And fear to launch away. f There everlasting spring abides, 5 mf Oh, could we make our doubts

And never-withering flowers ; p Death, like a narrow sea, divides

Those gloomy doubts that rise – This heavenly land from ours. cres And see the Canaan that we love

With unbeclouded eyes ; mf Sweet fields beyond the swelling flood

6 mf Could webutclimb where Moses stood, Stand dressed in living green ;

And view the landscape o'er, (flood So to the Jews old Canaan stood, f Not Jordan's stream, nor death's cold While Jordan rolled between.

Should fright us from the shore.
