2 Holy and creative Light!
We invoke thy kindling ray,
Filled with awe and holy fear,
All thy sacred presence near. 2 Check each proud and wandering thought,
When on thy great name we call :
Thou, our God, art all in all.
In this vale of darkness dwell,
Blidst thy light ineffable.
Seek thy heaven-exalted throne !
JERVIR. / 28.
Homage and Devotion. 1 WITH sacred joy we lift our eyes
To those bright realms above, That glorious temple in the skies,
Where dwells eternal love.
2 Before the awful throne we bow
Of heaven's Almighty King: llere we present the solemn vow,
And hymns of praise we sing.
Pure Worship. 1 The offerings to thy throne which rise,
of mingled praise and prayer, Are but a worthless sacrifice,
Unless the heart is there. 2 Upon thine all-discerning ear
Let no vain words intrude; No tribute but the vow sincere,
The tribute of the good.
Ir sanctified by thee;
With its own purity.
To piety and love,
Some rays from heaven above !
3 Thee we adore; and, Lord, to thee
Our filial duty pay. Thy service, unconstrained and free,
Coducts to endless day.
4 Whil: in thy house of prayer we kneel
With trust and holy fear,
And lend a gracious ear.
$ With fervor teach our hearts to pray,
And tune our lips to sing;
The sacrifice we brizg.
God may be worsMyped in every Piace 1 THE heaven of heavens cannot contain
The universal Lord;
To dwell and be adored.
