LOD the Father, throned on high ; 5 What Thou willest may we will,
Saviour, who didst come to die;

Nor our own desires fulfil,
Spirit, who dost sanctify;

For we know not good from ill.
Lord, in mercy hear us.

Lord, in merey hear us. 2 We would hope in Thee alone;

6 Turn our eyes from what is vain, May our hopes be all Thine own,

Guide our tongues with careful rein
And in fuller peace be shewn

That we speak no word profane.
Lordi, in mercy hear us.

Lord, in mercy hear us. 3 Lord, we love Thee, we deplore

7 May our lips our faith confess,
That we do not love Thee more;

Teach us, when reviled, to bless,
Warm our coldness, we implore.

Conquering by gentleness.
Lord, in inercy hear us.

Lord, in mercy hear us. 4 At Thy feet our thoughts we lay,

8 Make us wise to do the right,
Make Thine own the words we say,

Calm in trouble, brave in fight,
Make our lives more pure each day.

Humble, when our path is bright.
Lord, in mercy hear us.

Lord, in mercy hear us.
9 May we live that, free from fear,

We the angels' call may hear,
And before Thy throne appear.
Lord, in mercy hear us.

T. B. Pollock.

1 QUOD, whose sheltering arms are thrown 5 Body's weakness, spirit's woe,
U Tenderly around Thine own,

Life's hard struggle, death's fierce throe All whose cares to Thee are known,

Thou hast felt, and Thou dost know; Hear us, we beseech Thee.

Hear us, we beseech Thee. 2 Life and help from day to day,

6 When the sick before Thee lay, At whose will on earth we stay,

None were sent unhelped away,
At whose call we pass away,

Sin and death released their prey ;
Hear us, we beseech Thee.

Hear us, we beseech Thee. 3 Chastening those whom Thou dost choose, 7 At thy feet in faith we bow, Healing by the stripes that bruise,

Good Physician, sure that Thou
Giving joys when joys we lose,

Art as kind as ever now;
Hear us, we beseech Thee.

Hear us, we beseech Thec. 4 Christ, we trust Thy tender care,

8 May the sorrows we endure Thou didst all our sorrows share,

Be the medicine for our cure,
Thou hast borne the griefs we bear ;

Be the fire to make us pure;
Hear us, we beseech Thee.

Hear us, we beseech Thee.
9 Living, may we live to Thee,

May our dying set us free,
To be Thine eternally ;
Hear us, we beseech Thee.

PART I. (ESU, from Thy throne on high,

5 Little lives may be divine,
Far above the bright blue sky,

Little deeds of love may shino,
Look on us with loving eye.

Little ones be wholly Thine.
Hear us, Holy Jesu.

Hear us, Holy Jesu. 2 Little children need not fear,

6 Jesu, once an infant small,
When they know that Thou art pear,

Cradled in the oxen's stall,
Thou dost love us, Saviour dear.

Though the God and Lord of all.
Hear us, Holy Jesu.

Hear us, Holy Jesu. 3 Little lambs may come to Thee,

7 Once a Child so good and fair,
Thou wilt fold us tenderly,

Feeling want, and toil, and care-
And our careful Shepherd be.

All that we may have to bear.
Hear us, Holy Jesu.

Hear us, Holy Jesu. 4 Little hearts may love Thee well,

8 Jesu, Thou dost love us still,
Little lips Thy love may tell,

And it is Thy holy will
Little hymns Thy praises swell.

That we should be safe from ill.
Hear us, Holy Jesu.

Hear us, Holy Jesu.

PART II. · BE Th our

work and in our play,
us ,

6 May we ever try to be

From our sinful tempers free,
When we learn, and when we pray.

Pure and gentle, Lord, like Thee.
Hear us, Holy Jesu.

Hear us, Holy Jesu. 2 When we lie asleep at night,

7 May our thoughts be undefiled,
Ever may Thy angels bright

May our words be true and mild,
Keep us safe till morning's light.

Make us each a holy child.
Hear us, Holy Jesu.

Hear us, Holy Jesu. 3 Make us brave without a fear,

8 Jesu, Son of God most high,
Make us happy, full of cheer,

Who didst in a manger lie,
Sure that Thou art always near.

Who upon the cross didst die.
Hear us, Holy Jesu.

Hear us, Holy Jesu. 4 May we prize our Christian name,

9 Jesu, from Thy heavenly throne,
May we guard it free from blame,

Watching o'er each little one,
Fearing all that causes shame.

Till our life on earth is done.
Hear us, Holy Jesu.

Hear us, Holy Jesu. 6 May we grow from day to day,

10 Jesu, whom we hope to see,
Glad to learn each holy way,

Calling us in heaven to be
Ever ready to obey.

Happy evermore with Thee.
Hear us, Holy Jesu.

Hear us, Holy Jesu.
