Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty.-Rev. iv. 8. n
mf 2 Holy, Holy, Holy ! Thee,
One Jehovah evermore,
Father, Son, and Spirit, we,
Dust and ashes, would adore :
Lightly by the world esteemed, And Tbine eye beheld them good;
From that world by Thee redeemed, While they sang with sweet accord,
Sing we here with glad accord, Holy, Holy, Holy Lord !
Holy, Holy, Holy Lord !
Heaven's triumphant choirs shall sing,
At the footstool of their King :
Blending in sublime accord,
Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts.-ISA. vi. 3.
Early in the morning our song shall rise to Thee ;
God in Three Persons, Blesséd Trinity !
Casting down their golden crowns around glassy sea;
Who wast, and art, and evermore shalt be.
Though the eye of sinful man Thy glory may not see,
Perfect in power, in love, and purity.
All Thy works shall praise Thy name, in earth, and sky, and sea :
26 The name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.—Matt. xxviii. 19.
Doth o'er the world in mercy shine,
Be Thou in every land adored ;
On every soul Thy love be poured. p 3 O Son of God, for sinners slain,
We bless Thee, Lord, whose dying pain
For us did endless life regain.
Doth us for heavenly joys prepare,
Jesus, Thy mercy may we know;
With faith we sinners bow to Thee;
A. T. Russell.
God is light.-1 JOHN i. 5. mf 1
Let it close on sin forgiven ;
Fold us in the peace of heaven,
Shed a holy calm.
Dimly here we worship Thee ;
With the saints hereafter we
Hope to bear the palmı.
God sitteth upon the throne of His holiness.-Ps. xlvii. 8.
A ransom for our souls hath found, The soul is raised from sin and death, Before Thy throne we sinners bend :
Before Thy throne we sinners bend : To us Thy pardoning love extend.
To us Thy quickening power extend. 2 Almighty Son, Incarnate Word,
4 Thrice Holy ! Father, Spirit, Son ! Our Prophet, Priest, Redeemer, Lord !
Mysterious Godhead! Three in One! Before Thy throne we sinners bend :
Before Thy Throne we sinners bend : To us Thy saving grace extend.
Grace, pardon, life to us extend.
GOD THE FATHER. St. Luke. (FIRST TUNE.] 6.5., eight lines (amphibrachic).
(1) HIS ATTRIBUTES AND GLORY. 29 Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God.—1 Tim. i. 17. mf 1
inf 4 To-day and to-morrow
With Thee still are Now;
Nor trouble, nor sorrow,
Nor care, Lord, hast Thou;
Nor passion doth fever,
Nor age can decay,
The same God for ever
That was yesterday. mf 2 Unresting, unhasting,
5 Great Father of Glory,
Pure Father of Light,
Thine angels adore Thee,
All veiling their sight;
But of all Thy rich graces
This grace, Lord, impart-
Take the veil from our faces,
The veil from our heart.
s 6 All laud we would render ;
O help us to see,
'Tis only the splendour
Of light hideth Thee;
And so let Thy glory,
Almighty, impart dim And wither and perish :
Through Christ in the story, f But nought changeth Thee.
Thy Christ to the heart.
W. C. Smith.
