Till Judgment come,
And on our path
Shall burst the wrath,
5 O God, with love's sweet might,
Do Thou anoint and arm
Heaven's endless days
Shall sing Thy praise
1. Williams. (tr.)
St. Peter's Day.
On whom Thy people hope alone,
For man's offences to atone:
Who from the labours of the deep
Did'st set Thy servant Peter free,
And build an endless Church for Thee ;
3 Grant us, devoid of worldly care,
And leaning on Thy bounteous hand,
And on Thy sacred Rock to stand.
4. And when our live-long toil to crown,
Thy call shall set the spirit free,
And rise, O Lord, and follow Thee.
5* To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
The God whom heaven and earth adore,
St. James's Day.
Oh what, if we are Christ's,
Is earthly shame or loss ?
When we have borne the cross.
Keen was the trial once,
Bitter the cup of woe,
Christ's sufferings shared below.
Bright is their glory now,
Boundless their joy above,
They rest in perfect love.
Lord ! may that grace be ours,
Like them in faith to bear
May be our portion here.
Enough, if Thou at last
The word of blessing give,
Where Saints and Angels live.
All glory, Lord, to Thee,
Whom heaven and earth adore ;
Sir H. W. Baker.
St. Bartholomew's Day.
From guile their spirits free;
They shall His glory see.
In fullest light of love,
Than guidance from above:
3 Who in meek faith unmixed with doubt
The engrafted word receive,
Persuades, and they believe:
4 They, as they walk the painful world,
See hidden glories rise;
Unfolds before their eyes.
5 For them far greater things than these
Doth Christ the Lord prepare ;
No human voice declare.
6* To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
The God whom we adore,
St. Matthew's Day.
Of the world's wild restless sea :
Saying, Christian, follow Me.
2 Jesus calls us from the worship
Of the vain world's golden store,
Saying, Christian, love Me more.
3 In our joys and in our sorrows,
Days of toil and hours of ease,
Christian, love Me more than these.
4 Jesus calls us : by Thy mercies,
Saviour, may we hear Thy call,
Serve and love Thee best of all.
5* Glory be to God the Father,
Glory be to God the Son,
Co-eternal Three in One.
St. Michael & All Angels.
Some wait around Him, ready still
3 Lord, give Thy Angels every day
Command to guide us on our way,
4. So shall no wicked thing draw near,
To do us harm, or cause us fear,
5 Praise God, from whom all blessings flow,
Praise Him, all creatures here below,
