1 How bright these glorious spirits shine!
Whence all their white array?
Of everlasting day?
Who came to realms of light ;
Those robes which shine so bright.
Before the throne on high,
The glories of the sky,
Tunes every mouth to sing ;
With glad Hosannas ring.
Nor suns with scorching ray ;
Diffuse eternal day.
Shall o'er them still preside,
And all their footsteps guide.
7 In pastures green He 'll lead His flock
Where living streams appear ;
And God the Lord from every eye cres. Shall wipe off every tear. Amen.
“Lord, how excellent is Thy Name in all the earth.”—Ps. viii. 1.
1 How sweet the Name of Jesus sounds
In a believer's ear!
And drives away his fear.
2 It makes the wounded spirit whole,
And calms the troubled breast ; 'Tis manna to the hungry soul,
And to the weary rest.
3 Dear Name! the rock on which I build !
My shield and hiding-place !
With boundless stores of grace !
4 Jesus ! my Shepherd, Brother, Friend,
My Prophet, Priest, and King,
Accept the praise I bring.
5 Weak is the effort of my heart,
And cold my warmest thought ; cres. But when I see Thee as Thou art,
f I'll praise Thee as I ought.
6 Till then I would Thy love proclaim
With every fleeting breath ;
