Come, thou desire of nations, come,
And take us up to GOD!

Hymn 22. C. M.

WHILE shepherds watch'd their flocks by

All seated on the ground,

The Angel of the LORD came down,
And glory shone around.

2 "Fear not," said he, (for mighty dread
Had seized their troubled mind;)
"Glad tidings of great joy I bring
Το you, and all mankind.

3 "To you in David's town, this day,
Is born of David's line,

The SAVIOUR, who is CHRIST the LORD,
And this shall be the sign:

4 "The heavenly babe you there shall find
To human view display'd,

All meanly wrap'd in swathing-bands,
And in a manger laid."

5 Thus spake the seraph, and fortwith
Appear'd a shining throng
Of angels praising GOD, on high,
And thus address'd their song:

6 "All glory be to GoD on high,
And to the earth be peace;


Good will henceforth from heaven to man
Begin, and never cease.”

Teyerihwahkwatha 23. C. M.

Ne ne onh wen ja geh,

Ka ronh ya geh Ni yoh na ah!
Ne a goks ten ho gon.

2 Ne na ron wa ton renh,
Ne ji ni yen hen we,
Weh ni se ra te ra on ha,
A go das kat she ra.

3 Ne t'ya ga weh tah kon,

N'onh wa geh ne on gweh: Gon wa thon dats ra o wea na, Ne a ga we rya neh

4 Ji ya wen he yonh ne,
On gwa don hets o gon;
Ni yoh ne s'ron he ton na ah,
Ne na yo tenh the on.

5 Tes ho nonh ya ni eh,

Ne seh shon gwen ten ron; Ra nih hah ro ronh ya gea on, K'ris tus ro ni ten ron.


Hymn 23. P. M.

HE LORD of earth and sky, The GOD of ages praise! Who reigns enthroned on high, Ancient of endless days! Who lengthens out our trials here, And spares us yet another year. 2 Barren and wither'd trees,

We cumber'd long the ground!
No fruit of holiness

On our dead souls was found;
Yet doth he us in mercy spare,
Another and another year.

3 When Justice bared the sword
To cut the fig-tree down,
The pity of the LORD

Cried "Let it still alone!" The FATHER mild inclines his ear, And spares us yet another year. 4 JESUS! thy speaking blood

From GoD obtain❜d the grace;
Who therefore hath bestow'd
On us a longer space--
Thou didst in our behalf appear,
And lo, we see another year!
5 Then dig about the root,

Break up the fallow ground,
And let our gracious fruit
To thy great praise abound:
O let us all thy praise declare,
And fruit unto perfection bear.

Teyerihwahkwatha 24 S. M.

Ngwe ri e ne gen,


Ya ont kah thoh se ge,

O jis tohk ho gon gon di gen, Ka rah kwa onh went ja. 2 Te yoh swat he tah kon, Te yo ron ron ton yon, Ne ji ni yonk hi ga en yon, Ji te wa ya tah tonhs! 3 Ken se te yoh swat he, Weh ni se ra ten yon! "The non te yoh swat he tah kon, Ni yoh ra o wea na.

4 She gon gon gwah ton nihs
Tyo ga rahs ne tyon gweh,
Ken se teh shon gwa ga ne re!
Ne shon gwa ga en yon.

5 YE SUS ro nek hwa onh,
Ne na a o ri wa;

Ro tenh the on onh went ja geh,
Ne seh shon gwen ten ron.

6 Wa ho ni ren tenh re
Ji yon gwen denh the on
Yon gwa rih wa ne ra ax konh
O Ni yoh ta gwen tenr.

Hymn 24. S. M.
lift our hearts to thee,

O Day-star from on high,
The sun itself is but thy shade,
Yet cheers both earth and sky.
2 Let thy orient beams

The night of sin disperse,
The mists of error and of vice,
Which shade the universe!
3 How beauteous nature now!
How dark and sad before!
With joy we view the pleasing change,
And nature's GoD adore.

4 O may no gloomy crime
Pollute the rising day;

Or Jesus' blood, like evening dew,
Wash all its stains away!

5 May we this life improve,
To mourn for errors past;
And live this short revolving day,
As if it were our last.

And SPIRIT, one in three,

Be glory, as it was, is now,
And shall for ever be.

Hymn 25. C. M.

LORD, in the morning thou shalt hear

My voice ascending high;
