PALMS of glory, raiment bright,
Crowns that never fade away,
Gird and deck the saints in light; Priests, and kings, and conquerors, they. 2 Yet the conquerors bring their palms To the Lamb amid the throne, And proclaim in joyful psalms, Victory through His cross alone. 3 Kings for harps their crowns resign, Crying, as they strike the chords "Take the kingdom; it is Thine, King of kings, and Lord of lords." 4 Round the altar, priests confess, If their robes are white as snow, 'T was their Saviour's righteousness, And His blood, that made them so.
|REAT is the Lord our God,
G and let His praise be great;
He makes the church His own abode,
2 In Zion God is known,
A refuge in distress:
How bright has His salvation shone
3 When kings against her join'd,
5 In ev'ry new distress
We'll to His house repair;
We'll call to mind His wondrous grace
8s, 7s & 4.
ION stands with hills surrounded
All her foes shall be confounded,
What a favored lot is thine!
2 In the furnace God may prove thee,
God, thine everlasting light.
HERE, in Thy name, eternal God,
We build this earthly house for Thee;
Oh, choose it for Thy fix'd abode,
2 Here, when Thy people seek Thy face,
4 Thy glory never hence depart;
Yet choose not, Lord, this house alone;
LORD of hosts, whose glory fills
2 Grant that all we, who here to-day
The gold and silver, make them Thine.
4 To Thee they all pertain; to Thee
5 The heads that guide endue with skill;
That we, who these foundations lay,
6 Both now and ever, Lord, protect
YHRIST is our Corner-stone,
With His true saints alone
The courts of heaven are fill'd;
2 Oh, then with hymns of praise
These hallow'd courts shall ring:
The Three in One to sing,
For evermore draw nigh;
And mark each suppliant sigh;
Here may we gain from heaven
Until that day when all the blest
DEDICATION OF CHURCHES.
L'Here of of prayer and praise;
ORD of hosts, to Thee we raise
Thou Thy people's hearts prepare
2 Let the living here be fed
With Thy word, the heavenly bread;
3 Hallelujah!-earth and sky
Prayer and praise till time shall end.
EAR Shepherd of Thy people, here
As Thou hast given a place for prayer,
2 Show us some token of Thy love,
And pour Thy blessings from above,
4 The feeling heart, the melting eye,
And shine upon us from on high,
