With-out Thy aid our strength is vain,

) 1899.

And use-less all our skill.

Look down up-on Thy saints be-low When prostrate laid beneath the foe.

2 Beloved Shepherd, who hast saved

Our souls from death and sin,

Uplift Thy voice, awake Thy sheep,

That slumbering lie within

Thy fold; and curb, with Thy right hand,
The rage of Satan's furious band.

3 Send down Thy peace and banish strife,
Let bitterness depart;

Revive the spirit of Thy grace

In each true Christian's heart;
Then shall Thy church forever sing
The praises of her heavenly King.

CHRIST FOR THE WORLD WE SING.

[blocks in formation]

4 To the great One in Three,
The highest praises be,
Hence evermore !
His sovereign majesty
May we in glory see,
And to eternity
Love and adore!

3 Christ for the world we sing;
The world to Christ bring,
With one accord;

With us the work to share,
With us reproach to dare,
With us the cross to bear,
For Christ our Lord.

4 Christ for the world we sing;
The world to Christ we bring,
With joyful song;

The new-born souls, whose days,
Reclaimed from error's ways,
Inspired with hope and praise,
To Christ belong.
