MAY THE GRACE OF CHRIST.

8s. & 7s. REV. JOHN NEWTON, (1725—1807) 1779. 1 May the grace of Christ our Savior,

And the Father's boundless love, With the Holy Spirit's favor,

Rest upon us from above ! 2 Thus may we abide in union

With each other and the Lord, And possess, in sweet communion,

Joys which earth cannot afford.

LORD, DISMISS US.

88. & 7s. REV. ROBERT HAWKER, (1753—1827) 1774. 1 Lord, dismiss us with Thy blessing ;

Bid us now depart in peace ; Still on heavenly manna feeding,

Let our faith and love increase. 2 Fill each breast with consolation ;

Up to Thee our hearts we raise ; When we reach our blissful station,

Then we'll give Thee nobler praise.

O'ER THE DISTANT MOUNTAINS BREAKING.

88. & 78. 6 lines. REV. JOHN SAMUEL BEWLEY MONSELL, (1811-1875) 1863. 1 O'er the distant mountains breaking, 3 Long, too long in sin and sadness,

Comes the reddening dawn of day. Far away from Thee, I pine. Rise, my soul, from sleep awaking, When, oh when, shall I the gladness Rise and sing, and watch and pray. Of Thy Spirit feel in mine? 'Tis my Savior,

O my Savior, On His bright, returning way.

When shall I be wholly Thine ?

4 With my lamp well trimmed and burn2 0 Thou long-expected, weary

ing, Waits my anxious soul for Thee; Swift to hear and slow to roam, Life is dark and earth is dreary,

Watching for Thy glad returning Where Thy light I do not see.

To restore me to my home.
O my Savior,

Come, my Savior,
When wilt Thou return to me?

O my Savior, quickly come!
