BOWRING.

2 Holy and creative Light!

We invoke thy kindling ray,
Dawn upon our spirits' night,
Turn our darkness into day.

21.

Humble Worship.
1 WHEN before thy throne we kneel,

Filled with awe and holy fear,
Teach us, 0 our God! to feel

All thy sacred presence near. 2 Check each proud and wandering thought,

When on thy great name we call :
Man is naught, is less than naught;

Thou, our God, art all in all.
3 Weak, imperfect creatures, we

In this vale of darkness dwell,
Yet presume to look to thee

Blidst thy light ineffable.
4 Oh, receive the praise that dares

Seek thy heaven-exalted throne !
Bless oui offerings, hear our prayers,
Infinite and Holy One!

JERVIR. / 28.

BOWBINO

27.

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.
3 My offerings will indeed be blest,

Ir sanctified by thee;
If thy pure Spirit touch my breast

With its own purity.
4 Oh may that Spirit warm my heart

To piety and love,
And to life's lowly vale impart

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,
Thy mercy and thy truth reveal,

And lend a gracious ear.

DRENSAX

$ With fervor teach our hearts to pray,

And tune our lips to sing;
Nor from thy presence cast away

The sacrifice we brizg.

29.

God may be worsMyped in every Piace 1 THE heaven of heavens cannot contain

The universal Lord;
Yet he in humble hearts will deign

To dwell and be adored.
