2 Great Shepherd of thy people, here
Thy presence now display:
We bow within thy house of
O give us hearts to pray!


In pity, Lord, remove;
Dispose our minds to hear aright
The message of thy love.

Again with joyful feet we haste, To meet our Saviour there.

4 The feeling heart, the melting eye,
The humble mind, bestow;
And shine upon us from above,

To make our graces grow.

1 JESUS, our Lord, make no delay
To meet us with thy love;
Drive interposing clouds away,
And make our guilt remove.

3 The clouds which vail thee from our sight, 2 Dear Saviour, let thy glory shine,

And fill thy dwellings here,
Till life, and love, and joy divine,
A heaven on earth appear.

2 What do we here without thy grace, O blessed Lamb of God?

"T will be a dark and tiresome place . Unless we feel thy word.

3 Come in with power to every soul,
O thou immortal Dove;
Make every wounded spirit whole
With thy redeeming love.

COME, thou Desire of all thy saints!
Our humble strains attend,

While with our praises and complaints,
Low at thy feet we bend.

3 Vain, sinful man! creation's Lord
Thy offerings well may spare;
But give thy heart, and thou shalt find
Thy God will hear thy prayer.

2 Lord, on thee our souls depend;
In compassion now descend,
Fiil our hearts with thy rich grace,
Tune our lips to sing thy praise.
3 Send some message from thy word
That may joy and peace afford;
Let thy Spirit now impart
Full salvation to each heart,

4 Comfort those who weep and mourn,
Let the time of joy return;
Those that are cast down lift up,
Make them strong in faith and hope.

5 Grant that all may seek, and find
Thee a God supremely kind;
Heal the sick, the captive free;
Let us all rejoice in thee.

Made us of clay, and formed us men ;
And when like wandering sheep we strayed,
He brought us to his fold again.

2 Eternal are thy mercies, Lord,
Eternal truth attends thy word;
Thy praise shall sound from shore to shore,
Till suns shall rise and set no more.

3 Your lofty themes, ye mortals, bring, In songs of praise divinely sing; God's great salvation loud proclaim, And shout for joy his glorious name.

4 In every land begin the song,

To every land the strains belong;
In cheerful sounds all voices raise,
And fill the world with loudest praise.

Isaac Watts.

The psalmist's sacred harp was strung, Whom kings adored in songs sublime, And prophets praised with glowing tongue.

2 Not now on Zion's hight alone

Thy favored worshipers may dwell, Nor where, at sultry noon, thy Son

Sat weary by the patriarch's well.

3 From every place below the skies,

The grateful song, the fervent prayerThe incense of the heart-may rise

To heaven, and find acceptance there.

4 To thee shall age, with snowy hair,

And strength, and beauty, bend the knee, And childhood lisp with reverent air

Its praises and its prayers to thee.

1 GREAT God, attend while Zion sings The joy that from thy presence springs; To spend one day with thee on earth Exceeds a thousand days of mirth.

2 Might I enjoy the humblest place
Within thy house, O God of grace!
Not tents of ease, nor thrones of power,
Should tempt my feet to leave thy door.
3 God is our sun, he makes our day;
God is our shield, he guards our way
From all assaults of hell and sin,
From foes without and foes within.
4 All needful grace will God bestow,
And crown that grace with glory, too;
He gives us all things, and withholds
No needed good from upright souls.

Isaac Watts.

1 ETERNAL God, celestial King,
Exalted be thy glorious name;
Let hosts in heaven thy praises sing,
And saints on earth thy love proclaim.

2 My heart is fixed on thee, my God,

I rest my hope on thee alone;
I'll spread thy sacred truths abroad,

To all mankind thy love make known. 3 With those who in thy grace abound,

To thee I'll raise my thankful voice,
Till every land, the earth around,
Shall hear, and in thy name rejoice.
William Wrangham.
