EE what a living stone
Yet God hath built His Church thereon,
2 The work, O Lord, is Thine,
3 Hosanna to the King
Of David's royal blood!
Bless Him, ye saints, He comes to bring
4 Oh, come the happy hour
When all the world shall own
5 We bless Thy holy word
Which all this grace displays;
EHOLD the sure foundation stone
B which God in Zion lays,
To build our heavenly hopes upon,
2 Chosen of God, to sinners dear,
They trust their whole salvation here,
3 The foolish builders, scribe and priest,
Yet on this Rock the Church shall rest,
4 What though the gates of hell withstood; Yet must this building rise: "Tis Thine own work, Almighty God, And wondrous in our eyes.
HER PRIVILEGES AND GLORY.
8s & 7s.
YLORIOUS things of thee are spoken,
He, whose word cannot be broken,
What can shake Thy sure repose?
3 Round each habitation hov'ring,
For a glory and a cov'ring,
H, where are kings and empires now,
2 We mark her goodly battlements,
We hear within the solemn voice
3 For not like kingdoms of the world
Though earthquake shocks are threat'ning her, And tempests are abroad;
4 Unshaken as eternal hills,
Immovable she stands,
A mountain that shall fill the earth,
ORDINATION AND INSTALLATION.
Thy faithful messenger secure,
And make him to the end endure.
2 Gird him with all-sufficient grace,
HOLY Lord, our God,
To Thee the cherubim,
Angels and seraphim,
2 Here give Thy word success,
And while the sinuer's Friend
And make Him known.
3 May ev'ry passing year
6s & 4s.
ET Zion's watchmen all awake,
Now let them from the mouth of God
2 'T is not a cause of small import
But what might fill an angel's heart,
3 They watch for souls, for which the Lord Did heavenly bliss forego;
For souls which must forever live
4 All to the great tribunal haste,
5 May they that Jesus, Whom they preach, Their own Redeemer see;
And watch Thou daily o'er their souls,
A BLESSED CALLING.
TOW beauteous are their feet
Who stand on Zion's hill!
2 How charming is their voice!
3 How happy are our ears
