3 God, thy God, will now restore thee;
He Himself appears thy friend ;
4 Enemies no more shall trouble ;
All thy wrongs shall be redress'd ;
All thy conflicts
St. Andrew's Day.
In whom Thy servants live,
Saviour of men, we give.
All glory for Thy chosen band,
To whom the charge was given,
And point the way to heaven.
3 All glory for Saint Andrew's faith,
Who sought Thy low abode,
To Thee, the Lamb of God.
4 For him we bless and praise Thy name,
And humbly pray that we,
As he, Lord, followed Thee.
To Thee, O Spirit Blest,
By all Thy Church addrest. Amen.
St. Thomas's Day.
225 I O THOU, Who didst, with love untold,
Thy doubting servant chide,
Thy wounded Hands and Side.
Grant us, like him, with heartfelt awe,
To own Thee God and Lord,
A fuller faith's reward.
3 And while that wondrous record now
Of unbelief we hear,
In self-distrusting fear;
4 And pray that we may never dare
Thy Spirit so to grieve;
Who see not, yet believe !
5 Our Lord and God, Eternal Son,
To Thee all glory be,
Through all eternity. Amen.
WE walk by faith, and not by sight;
No gracious words we hear
But we believe Him near.
2 We may not touch His Hands and Side,
Nor follow where He trod;
“My Lord and God.”
3 Help Thou, O Lord, our unbelief:
And may our faith abound,
And seek where Thou art found:
4 That when our life of faith is done,
In realms of clearer light,
With full and endless sight.
The God Whom we adore,
The vanquisher is vanquished,
Himself in noblest triumph led.
2 The ravening wolf of Benjamin
At early morn went forth to slay ;
He shall in peace divide the prey.
3 Her foe is now the Church's rock,
A wolf no more, a lamb is he;
O Jesu, nought is hard with Thee !
4 Thy voice, O Lord, the mountain shakes,
And all the trees that grow thereon ;
The cedars of proud Lebanon.
5 Good Shepherd, keep us as of old,
The foe confound, the flock defend;
Again to Thee our bosoms bend.
6 To God, the Three in One, be praise
Supreme, and honour infinite;
great Apostle, called by grace, Weaned from all works beside, Preached the same faith he once abhorred
And Christ whom he denied.
In perils and in troubles oft,
His toilsome life he past ;
Upheld him to the last.
3 A chosen vessel of His will,
He fought the fight of faith,
Obedient unto death.
4 Thus, Lord of grace, to all Thy will
Obedient may we be,
E’en as he followed Thee.
5* To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
The God Whom we adore,
