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.
Their simple souls upon His word,
In fullest light of love,
Than guidance from above:
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.
Of bright and glorious Angels stand ;
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,
3. M. Neale.
Who, 'mid Thy glory's blaze,
The ceaseless anthem raise,
We celebrate their love, whose viewless wing
The mercies of their King
To mortal saints to bring,
But Thee, the First and Last, we glorify,
The armies of the sky,
Therefore, with Angels and Archangels, we
And tune our songs to Thee
Who art, and art to be,
Bp. R. Heber.
For him whose holy pen
To glad the sons of men !
Glory to God on high,
And peace upon the earth,
As at the Saviour's birth.
Be lifted every voice,
Let every soul rejoice.
Let Israel's God be praised;
Up for His people raised.” 5 And when around our path
The call of death is heard,
According to Thy word.” 6* To God the Father, Son,
And Holy Ghost be given
St. Simon & St. Jude.
For the Apostles' fostering care,
For their preaching and their prayer ;
