SAVIOUR, is Thy promise fled,
Nor longer might Thy grace endure
To heal the sick, and raise the dead,
And preach Thy Gospel to the poor?
Come, JESUS, come! return again;

With brighter beam Thy servants bless,
Who long to feel Thy perfect reign,
And share Thy kingdom's happiness.
Come, JESUS, come; and, as of yore,
The prophet went to clear Thy way,
A harbinger Thy feet before,

A dawning to Thy brighter day;

So now may grace with heavenly shower
Our stony hearts for truth prepare;
Sow in our souls the seed of power,
Then come and reap Thy harvest there.

Tune of the "Prayer by Robert Wisdome," in the English Psalter, 1563,

ANDERNACH. (Rex gloriose Martyrum!) L. M. Brotherhood of St. Cecilia. 1608.*


I d d



HOSANNA to the living Lord!

Hosanna to the Incarnate Word!
To Christ, Creator, Saviour, King,
Let earth, let heaven Hosanna sing.
O Saviour! with protecting care
Return to this Thy House of Prayer:
Assembled in Thy sacred Name,
Where we Thy parting promise claim.
But, chiefest, in our cleansed breast,
Eternal bid Thy Spirit rest;
And make our secret soul to be
A temple pure, and worthy Thee!
So in the last and dreadful day,
When earth and heaven shall melt away,
Thy flock, redeem'd from sinful stain,
Shall swell the sound of praise again.

* From their 'Spiritual Songs,' printed at Andernach.
