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.

2

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.

2

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.

Amen.
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.

2

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.

7. Chandler. (tr.)
