The Trinity invoked.
2 Jesus, our Lord, arise ;
Scatter our enemies,

And make them fall:
Let Thine almighty aid
Our sure defence be made;
Our souls on Thee be stayed;

Lord, hear our call.
3 Come, Thou Incarnate Word,
Gird on Thy mighty sword,

Our prayer attend:
Come, and Thy people bless,
And give Thy Word success;
Spirit of holiness,

On us descend.
4 Come, Holy Comforter,
Thy sacred witness bear

In this glad hour:
Thou who Almighty art,
Now rule in every heart,
And ne'er from us depart,

Spirit of power.
5 To the great One and Three
Eternal praises be

Hence, evermore.
His sovereign majesty
May we in glory see,
And to eternity

Love and adore.
Rev. Charles Wesley. (1708—1788.) 1757.

to sing, Help us to praise :

Let there be Light."

Gen. i. 3. 2 Cor. iv. 6.
1 Thou, whose almighty Word
Chaos and darkness heard,

And took their flight;
Hear us, we humbly pray,
And where the Gospel's day
Sheds not its glorious ray,

“Let there be light."
2 Thou, who didst come to bring
On Thy redeeming wing

Healing and sight,
Health to the sick in mind,
Sight to the inly blind,
O, now to all mankind

“Let there be light.” 3 Spirit of truth and love, Life-giving, holy Dove,

Speed forth Thy flight: Move o'er the water's face, Bearing the lamp of grace, And in earth's darkest place

“Let there be light.” 4 Blessed and Holy Three, Glorious Trinity,

Wisdom, Love, Might;
Boundless as ocean's tide,
Rolling in fullest pride,
Through the world, far and wide,

“Let there be light."
Rev. John Marriott. (1780—1825.) 1813.

God praised for His Goodness and Truth. He helps the stranger in distress, 4 Ps. cxlvi.

The widow and the fatherless, 2 Happy the man whose hopes rely

And grants the prisoner sweet release. On Israel's God: He made the sky, And earth, and seas, with all their train ; 4 I'll praise Him while He lends me breath; His truth forever stands secure;

And when my voice is lost in death, He saves the opprest, He feeds the poor, Praise shall employ my nobler powers: And none shall find His promise vain.

My days of praise shall ne'er be past, 3 The Lord hath eyes to give the blind;

While life and thought and being last, The Lord supports the sinking mind;

Or immortality endures. He sends the laboring conscience peace;

Rev. Isaac Watts. (1674-1748.) 1719. ab.

* Te Deum laudamus. 2 To Thee aloud all angels cry, The heavens and all the powers on high : Thee, Holy, holy, holy King, Lord God of Hosts, they ever sing. 3 Th' apostles join the glorious throng; The prophets swell th’immortal song; The martyrs' roble army raise Eternal anthems to Thy praise. 4 From day to day, O Lord, do we Highly exalt and honor Thee: Thy name we worship and adore, World without end, for evermore. 5 Vouchsafe, O Lord, we humbly pray, To keep us safe from sin this day: Have mercy, Lord, we trust in Thee; O let us ne'er confounded be.

The Trinity adoreck I O HOLY, holy, holy Lord,

Bright in Thy deeds and in Thy name, For ever be Thy name adored,

Thy glories let the world proclaim. : 0 Jesus, Lamb once crucified

To take our load of sins away, Thine be the hymn that rolls its tide

Along the realms of upper day.

God with us, and in us. 1 ETERNAL Father, when to Thee,

Beyond all worlds, by faith I soar, Before Thy boundless majesty

I stand in silence, and adore. 2 But, Saviour, Thou art by my side:

Thy voice I hear, Thy face I see. Thou art my friend, my daily guide;

God over all, yet God with me. 3 And Thou, Great Spirit, in my heart

Dost make Thy temple day by day: The Holy Ghost of God Thou art,

Yet dwellest in this house of clay. 4 Blest Trinity, in Whom alone

All things created move or rest, High in the heavens Thou hast Thy throne, Thou hast Thy throne within my breast.

Rev. Hervey Doddridge Ganse. (1822–) 1872.

The Spirit of all truth and peace,

Fountain of joy and holiness !
; To Father, Son, and Spirit now

The hands we lift, the knees we bow;
To Thee, Jehovah, thus we raise
The sinner's endless song of praise.
Rev. Horatius Bonar. (1808–) 1861. ab. and alt.

The Trinity humbly worshipped. 2 Almighty Son, incarnate Word,

Our Prophet, Priest, Redeemer, Lord,
Before Thy throne we sinners bend:

To us Thy saving grace extend. 3 Eternal Spirit, by whose breath

The soul is raised from sin and death,
Before Thy throne we sinners bend:

To us Thy quickening power extend. 4 Jehovah,-Father, Spirit, Son,

Mysterious Godhead, Three in one,
Before Thy throne we sinners bend:
Grace, pardon, life, to us extend.

John Cooper. 1810.

Praise for Salvation. I PRAISES to Him whose love has given,

In Christ, His Son, the Life of Heaven; Who for our darkness gives us light,

And turns to day our deepest night. 2 Praises to Him, in grace who came,

To bear our woe, and sin, and shame; Who lived to die, who died to rise,

The God-accepted sacrifice.
3 Praises to Him the chain who broke,

Opened the prison, burst the yoke,
Sent forth its captives glad and free,

Heirs of an endless liberty.
4 Praises to Him who sheds abroad

Within our hearts the love of God;

IO

O luce que tuâ lates."
1 Blest Trinity, from mortal sight

Veiled in Thine own eternal Light,
We Thee confess, in Thee believe,

To Thee with loving hearts we cleave. 2 O Father, Thou most Holy One !

O God of God, Eternal Son !
O Holy Ghost, Thou Love divine !

To join them Both is ever Thine. 3 The Father is in God the Son,

And with the Father He is One:
In Both the Spirit doth abide,

And with them Both is glorified.
4 Such as the Father, such the Son,

And such the Spirit, Three in One:
The Three one perfect Verity,

The Three one perfect Charity.
5 Eternal Father, Thee we praise;

To Thee, O Son, our hymns we raise;
O Holy Ghost, we Thee adore:
One mighty God for evermore.

Santolius Maglorianus. (1624—1684.) Tr. by Rev. Sir Henry Williams Baker. (1821–) 1861.
