2. Lord, from Thine inmost glory send,

Within these courts to bide,
The

peace that dwelleth without end,

Serenely by Thy side!
3. May erring minds that worship here
Be taught the better

way;
And they who mourn, and they who fear,

Be strengthened as they pray.
4. May faith grow firm, and love grow warm,

And pure devotion rise,
While round these hallowed walls the storm

Of earth-born passion dies.

BRYANT.

941.

C. M.

1. The Saviour said, “ Yet one thing more,

If thou would'st perfect be,
Give all thou hast unto the poor,

And come and follow me.
2. Within this temple, Christ again

Those sacred words hath said;
Unseen His hands to-day have been

Laid on a young man's head.
3. Henceforth, beside him on his way

The unseen Christ shall move,
That he

may

lean on Him and say,
“ Dost Thou, dear Lord, approve ?"
4. Near at the marriage-feast shall be,

To make the scene more fair;
Near, in the dark Gethsemane,

Of pain and midnight prayer.
5. O holy trust! ( endless rest!

Like the beloved John,
To lean upon the Saviour's breast,
And thus to journey on!

ALTERED FROM LONGFELLOW.

942.

C. M.
1. ANGELS, where'er we go, attend

Our steps, whate'er betide,
With watchful care their charge defend,

And evil turn aside.
2. Myriads of bright cherubic bands,

Sent by the King of kings,
Rejoice to bear us in their hands,

And shade us with their wings.
3. Jehovah's charioteers surround;

The ministerial choir
Encamp, where'er his heirs are found,

And form our wall of fire.
4. Ten thousand offices unseen

For us they gladly do,
Deliver in the furnace keen,

And safo escort us through.
5. But thronging round, with busiest love

They guard the dying breast,
The lurking fiend far off remove,

And sing our souls to rest.
6. And when our spirits we resign,

On outstretched wings they bear,
And lodge us in the arms Divine,

And leave us ever there. C. WESLEY.

943.

78 & 6s.
1. From Greenland's icy mountains,

From India's coral strand,
Where Afric's sunny fountains

Roll down their golden sand;
From many an ancient river,

From many a palmy plain,
They call us to deliver

Their land from error's chain.

2. What though the spicy breezes

Blow soft o'er Ceylon's isle;
Though every prospect pleases,

And only man is vile;
In vain with lavish kindness

The gifts of God are strown;
The heathen, in his blindness,

Bows down to wood and stone!
3. Shall we, whose souls are lighted

With wisdom from on high,
Shall we to men benighted

The lamp of life deny ?
Salvation, O salvation !

The joyful sound proclaim,
Till each remotest nation

Has learned Messiah's name.
4. Waft, waft, ye winds, his story,

And you, ye waters, roll,
Till, like a sea of glory,

It spreads from pole to pole;
Till o'er our ransomed nature

The Lamb for sinners slain,
Redeemer, King, Creator,

In bliss returns to reign.

HEBER.

944.

78 & 6s.
1. Now be the Gospel banner

In every land unfurl'd;
And be the shout hosanna

Re-echoed through the world;
Till ev'ry isle and nation,

Till every tribe and tongue,
Receive the great salvation,

And join the happy throng.
2. Yes, Thou shalt reign forever,

O Jesus, King of kings!
Thy light, Thy love, Thy favor,

Each ransomed captive sings :

The isles for Thee are waiting,

The deserts learn Thy praise,
The hills and valleys greeting,

The song responsive raise.

HASTINGS,

945.

L. M.
1. Ye Christian heroes, go, proclaim

Salvation through Immanuel's name;
To distant climes the tidings bear,

And plant the rose of Sharon there. 2. He'll shield you with a wall of fire,

With flaming zeal your breasts inspire;
Bid raging winds their fury cease,

And hush the tempest into peace.
3. And when your labors all are o’er,

Then we shall meet to part no more ;
Meet, with the blood-bought throng to fall
And crown our Jesus Lord of all.

PRATT'S COLL. 946.

L. M.
1. TRIUMPHANT Zion! lift thy head

From dust, and darkness, and the dead !
Though humbled long--awake at length,

And gird thee with thy Saviour's strength! 2. Put all thy beauteous garments on,

And let thy excellence be known;
Decked in the robes of righteousness,

The world thy glories shall confess. 3. No more shall foes unclean invade,

And fill thy hallowed walls with dread;
No more shall hell's insulting host

Their victory and thy sorrows boast,
4.- God, from on high, has heard thy prayer;

His hand thy ruins shall repair;
Nor will thy watchful Monarch cease
To guard thee in eternal peace, DODDRIDGE.

947.

L. M.
1. O SPIRIT of the living God,

In all Thy plenitude of grace,
Where'er the foot of man hath trod,

Descend on our apostate race.
2. Give tongues of fire, and hearts of love,

To preach the reconciling word;
Give
power

and unction from above, Where'er the joyful sound is heard. 3. Be darkness, at Thy coming, light;

Confusion-order, in Thy path;
Souls without strength, inspire with might;

Bid mercy triumph over wrath. 4. Baptize the nations; far and nigh

The triumphs of the cross record;
The name of Jesus glorify,

Till every kindred call Him Lord. 5. O Spirit of the Lord ! prepare

All the round earth her God to meet,
Breathe Thou abroad like morning air,

Till hearts of stone begin to beat.

MONTGOMERY.

948.

L. M.

1. Arm of the Lord! awake, awake!

Put on Thy strength! the nations shake!
And let the world, adoring, see

Triumphs of mercy wrought by Thee. 2. Say to the heathen, from Thy throne

“ I am Jehovah—God alone!"
Thy voice their idols shall confound,

And cast their altars to the ground. 3. Almighty God! Thy grace proclaim

In every land, of every name ;
Let Zion's time of favor come;
Oh! bring the tribes of Israel home.
