Watchman, tell us of the night;
Higher yet that star ascends; Traveler, blessedness and light,
Peace and truth, its course portends; Watchman, will its beams alone
Gild the spot that gave them birth? Traveler, ages are its own;
See, it bursts o'er all the earth! Watchman, tell us of the night,
For the morning seems to dawn; Traveler, darkness takes its flight,
Doubt and terror are withdrawn ; Watchman, let thy wanderings cease; Hie thee to thy quiet home! Traveler, lo, the Prince of peace, Lo, the Son of God is come! JOHN BOWRING, 1825.
Savior, blessed Savior,
Christ, we draw to Thee,
Bending low the knee: Thou for our redemption
Cam'st on earth to die : Thou, that we might follow, Hast gone up on high. Great and ever greater
Are Thy mercies here, True and everlasting
Are the glories there; Where no pain or sorrow, Toil, or care, is known, Where the angel legions Circle round Thy throne. GODFREY THRING, 1862.
Kings shall fall down before Him,
His praise all people sing;
Or dove's light wing can soar.
A seed in weakness sown,
He on His throne shall rest;
His covenant remove;
JAMES MONTGOMERY, 1822.
Tune-"Spanish Hymn"-No. 60. Hasten, Lord! the glorious time When beneath Messiah's sway, Every nation, every clime,
Shall the Gospel's call obey.
Mightiest kings His power shall own, Heathen tribes His name adore; Satan and His host o'erthrown,
Bound in chains, shall hurt no more. Then shall wars and tumult cease,
Then be banished grief and pain; Righteousness and joy and peace
Undisturbed shall ever reign.
Bless we, then, our gracious Lord,
Work, for the night is coming,
Work through the morning hours;
Work, while the dew
Work through the sunny noon;
Something to keep in store;
When man works no more.
