I 24
1 Mighty Saviour, gracious King,

Now Thy waiting people bless;
Thou that dost deliverance bring,

Come to reign in righteousnesss :
Thou dost heavenly light impart;

Tune the ear to Zion's song;
Teach and guide the wayward heart;

Loose and prompt the stammering tongue.


Pour Thy Spirit from on high ;

Come, Thy mourning Church to bless ;
Streams of life and joy supply ;

Fill the world with righteousness :
Light shall then possess Thine own,

Holy quiet, perfect peace;
And where heavenly seed is sown,

Thou wilt give the blest increase. Amen.

Fifth Sunday after Easter.

1 HOLY Jesus, in whose Name

Thou hast bid Thy servants claim
Of the Father's love, to grant
All the good they wish or want ;
Trusting in Thy Name alone,
Draw we near Thy Father's throne.

2 Holy Jesus, at whose Name,

Through this universal frame,

By th' Almighty Sire's decree
All its dwellers bow the knee :
To Thy Father's Name we join
In co-equal worship Thine.

3 Son of Man, to whom is given,

With the Majesty of Heaven,
Partner Thou of man's estate,
For mankind to mediate :
Hear us, when to Thee we plead
For Thy flock to intercede.

4 Son of God, to whom of right,

Partner of Thy Father's might,
Sole, adorable, and true,
Empire o'er the world is due :
Hear us, when on Thee we call
For Thy blessing, Lord of all !

5 Saviour of the world, to Thee

Ever bows the Church her knee;
Thee, her only Advocate,
Thee, exalted to Thy state,
With the Holy Ghost Most High
In the Father's Majesty. Amen.

Bp. R. Mant.



Hail, Thou once-despisèd Jesus !

Hail, Thou Galilean King !
Thou didst suffer to release us;

Thou didst free salvation bring;

Hail, Thou agonizing Saviour,

Bearer of our sin and shame!
By Thy merits we find favour;

Life is given through Thy Name.


Paschal Lamb, by God appointed,

All our sins were on Thee laid ;
By Almighty Love anointed,

Thou hast full atonement made :
All Thy people are forgiven

Through the virtue of Thy blood ;
Opened is the gate of heaven;

Peace is made 'twixt man and God.

3 Jesus, hail ! enthron’d in glory,

There for ever to abide;
All the heavenly hosts adore Thee,

Seated at Thy Father's side.
There for sinners Thou art pleading;

There Thou dost our place prepare,
Ever for us interceding,

Till in glory we appear.

4 Worship, honour, power, and blessing,

Thou art worthy to receive ;
Loudest praises, without ceasing,

Meet it is for us to give:
Help, ye bright angelic spirits ;

Bring your sweetest, noblest lays;
Help to sing our Saviour's merits,
Help to chant Immanuel's praise.

Veni Creator Spiritus.
1 COME Holy Ghost, Creator, come,

And visit all the souls of Thine :
Thou hast inspired our hearts with life ;

Inspire them now with life divine. 2 Thou art the Comforter, the gift

Of God most high ; the Fire of love,
The everlasting Spring of joy,

And holy unction from above.
3 Thy gifts are manifold; Thou writ'st

God's laws in every faithful heart;
The promise of the Father, Thou

Dost heavenly eloquence impart. 4 Enlighten our dark souls, till they

Thy love, Thy heavenly love embrace ; And since we are by nature frail,

Assist us with Thy saving grace. 5 Drive far from us the mortal foe,

And grant us to have peace within ; That, with Thy light and guidance blest,

We may escape the snares of sin. 6 Teach us the Father to confess,

And Son, who from the grave revived ,
And, with the Father and the Son,
Thee, Holy Ghost, from both derived.

St. Gregory.
Tr. in Book of Common Prayer.

I 28.

Jesu, nostra, redemptio. 1 O CHRIST, our hope, our heart's desire,

Redemption's only spring,
Creator of the world art Thou,

Its Saviour and its King.


How vast the mercy and the love

Which laid our sins on Thee,
And led Thee to a cruel death

To set Thy people free !

3 But now the bonds of death are burst,

The ransom has been paid ;
And Thou art on Thy Father's Throne

In glorious robes arrayed.
4 O may Thy mighty love prevail

Our sinful souls to spare !
O may we come before Thy Throne.

And see Thy glory there !
5 O Christ, be Thou our present joy,

Our future great reward ;
Our only glory may it be,

To glory in the Lord.
6 All praise to Thee Who dost ascend

Triumphantly to heaven;
All praise to God the Father's Name,
And Holy Ghost be given. Amen.
