Separate from sin, I would
Choose and cherish all things good;
And whatever I can be
Give to him who gave me thee.

“ SEND FORTH THY LIGHT AND
164.
TRUTH."

C.M. St. Stephen'sManchester-Prestwich. 1 Come, Holy Ghost, our hearts inspire,

Let us thine influence prove;
Source of the old prophetic fire,

Fountain of light and love. 2 Come, Holy Ghost—for moved by thee

The holy prophets spoke-
Unlock the truth, thyself the Key,

Unseal the sacred book.
3 Expand thy wings, celestial dove,

Brood o'er our nature's night;
On our disordered spirits move,

And let there now be light. 4 God through himself we then shall know,

If thou within us shine;
And sound, with all thy saints below,
The depth of love divine.

THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY
165.
SPIRIT.

L.M. Stettin-Winchester-Charmouth. 1 0 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,

Whene'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 God from eternity hath willed

All flesh shall his salvation see;
So be the Father's love fulfilled,
The Saviour's sufferings crowned through

thee.

PRAISE TO THE FATHER, 148th M.

SON, AND HOLY SPIRIT. 6666,88. St. John's-Bevan-Waterstock-Evegate. 1 To Him that chose us first,

Before the world began;
To Him that bore the curse,
To save rebellious man;

[ocr errors][merged small]

To Him that forms our hearts anew

Are endless praise and glory due. 2 The Father's love shall run

Through our immortal songs;
We bring to God the Son

Hosannas on our tongues;
Our lips address the Spirit's name

With equal praise, and zeal the same. 3 Let every saint above,

And angel round the throne,
For ever bless and love

The sacred three in One;
Thus heaven shall raise his honours high
When earth and time grow old and die.
HOLY, HOLY, HOLY !

11. 12. 167. LORD GOD ALMIGHTY!

thee: Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and Mighty!

God in Three Persons, Blessed Trinity! 2 Holy, holy, holy! all the saints adore thee, Casting down their golden crowns around

the glassy sea; Cherubim and seraphim falling down be

fore thee, Who wast, and art. and evermore shalt be.

3 Holy, holy, holy! though the darkness

hide thee, Though the eye of sinful man thy glory

may not see; Only thou art holy: there is none beside

thee Perfect in power, in love, and purity. 4 Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty! All thy works shall praise thy name, in

earth, and sky, and sea : Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and Mighty ! God in Three Persons, Blessed Trinity!

PRAISE, O PRAISE THE NAME DIVINE.

Geneva-Durham2-St. Helen's.
1 Praise O praise the name divine!

Praise it at the hallowed shrine;
Let the firmament on high

To its Maker's praise reply. 2 Be the harp no longer mute;

Sound the trumpet, touch the lute,
Wake to life each tuneful string,

Bring the pipe, the timbrel bring. 3 All who vital breath enjoy,

In his praise that breath employ;
And in one great chorus join-
Praise, O praise the name divine!

4 Praise the name of God most high!

Praise him, all below the sky!
Praise him, all ye heavenly host,

Father, Son, and Holy Ghost! 169. REVELATION.

L. M. Kent2_HamburgMainzer. 1 O God, who didst thy will unfold

In wondrous modes to saints of old,
By dream, by oracle, or seer:

Wilt thou not still thy people hear? 2 What though no answering voice is heard:

Thine oracles, the written word,
Counsel and guidance still impart,

Responsive to the upright heart. 3 What though no more by dreams is shown

That future things to God are known;
Enough the promises reveal;

Wisdom and love the rest conceal.
4 Faith asks no signal from the skies,

To show that prayers accepted rise;
Our Priest is in the holy place,

And answers from the throne of grace. 5 No need of prophets to inquire:

The sun is risen: the stars retire,
The Comforter is come, and sheds
His holy unction on our heads.
