W. A. H. Hinnershitz.
1. Shine on our land, Je - ho- vab, shine, With beams of heavenly grace; 2. When shall Thy name from shore to shore Sound all the earth a-broad, 3. God, the Re - deem - er, scat-ters round His choic-est fa- vors here,
Re - veal Thy power through all our coasts And show Thy smi-ling face. And dis - tant na- tions know and love Their Sav-iour and their God? While the à - tion's ut-most bound Shall see, a - dore, and fear,
Here fix Thy throne ex alt - ed high, And here our glo - ry stand;
And like wall of guardian fire, Sur-round Thy favorite land.
EARTH BELOW IS TEEMING.
REV. JOHN SAMUEL BEWLEY MONSELL, (1811–1875) 1863.
4 1. Earth be-low is teem-ing, Heaven is bright a-bove; Every brow is beaming 2. For the sun and show-ers, For the rain and dew, For the nurturing hours 3. Earth's broad harvest whitens In a brighter sun Than the orb that lightens
8 흡 In the light of love; Ev-ery eye re-joi - ces, Every thought is praise; Spring and summer knew; For the golden au-tumn, And its precious stores,
All we tread up - on; Send out laborers, Father! Where fields ripening wave,
Bounti-ful and free, As the joy in har-vest, We rejoice in Thee. Amen.

Hasten to the palace of your God and King;

The Lord came down to save me, Be-cause He loved me so.
Be-cause He loves me so.
