men,

5 O say, ye lusty Cretans, who

6 Ye tongues and tribes of living men, Sail o'er the Mediterranean blue,

When leafy Summer is come again, And ye who on your camels bear

When birds sing loud on every side, Rich freight of Araby's incense rare, And earth is blooming in Whitsuntide, – O tell us why your voices ring,

O tell us why your voices ring, And all so joyfully, cheerily, merrily sing? And all so joyfully, cheerily, merrily sing? Response. In our own tongue, etc. Response :

Wear-y souls for e’er re-joice, While they hear that sweetest voice,

[ocr errors]

Whispering softly, “Wanderer, come, Follow Me,I'll guide thee home.” A-men.

2 Ever present, truest Friend,

3 When our days of toil shall cease, Ever near Thine aid to lend,

Waiting still for sweet release, Leave us not to doubt and fear,

Nothing left but heaven and prayer, Groping on in darkness drear.

Wondering if our names were there; When the storms are raging sore, Wading deep the dismal flood,

Hearts grow faint, and hopes give o'er, Pleading nought but Jesus' blood, Whispering softly, “Wanderer, come, Whispering softly, “Wanderer, come,

Follow Me, I'll guide thee home.” Follow Me, I'll guide thee home.”

HOVER O’ER ME, HOLY SPIRIT.

REV. ELLWOOD H. STOKES, (1815-1895) 1879.

John R. Sweney, (1838–1899) 1879.

1. Hov - er o'er me, Ho - ly Spir.. it; Bathe my trembling heart and brow; 2. Thou can’st fill me, gracious Spirit, Though I can - not tell Thee how; 3. I am weakness, full of weakness; At Thy sa cred feet

I bow; 4. Cleanse and comfort; bless and save me; Bathe, oh, bathe my heart and brow;

[ocr errors]

Fill me with Thy hallowed presence, Come, oh, come and fill me now.
But I need Thee, greatly need Thee, Come, oh, come and fill me now.
Blest, di- vine, e. ter - nal Spir - it, Fill with power, and fill me now.
Thou art com-fort- ing and sa-ving, Thou art sweet - ly fill- ing now.

4 Asking gifts for sinful men,

That He may come down again,
And, the fallen to restore,
In them dwell for evermore.

Alleluia

5 Sing, O Heavens ! O earth, rejoice !
Angel harp, and human voice,
Round Him, in His glory, raise
Your ascended Saviour's praise.

Alleluia!
