Watchman, tell us of the night;

Higher yet that star ascends; Traveler, blessedness and light,

Peace and truth, its course portends; Watchman, will its beams alone

Gild the spot that gave them birth? Traveler, ages are its own;

See, it bursts o'er all the earth! Watchman, tell us of the night,

For the morning seems to dawn; Traveler, darkness takes its flight,

Doubt and terror are withdrawn ; Watchman, let thy wanderings cease; Hie thee to thy quiet home! Traveler, lo, the Prince of peace, Lo, the Son of God is come! JOHN BOWRING, 1825.

Savior, blessed Savior,
Listen while we sing;
Hearts and voices raising
Praises to our King.
All we have to offer,
All we hope to be,
Body, soul, and spirit,
All we yield to Thee.
Nearer, ever nearer,

Christ, we draw to Thee,
Deep in adoration

Bending low the knee: Thou for our redemption

Cam'st on earth to die : Thou, that we might follow, Hast gone up on high. Great and ever greater

Are Thy mercies here, True and everlasting

Are the glories there; Where no pain or sorrow, Toil, or care, is known, Where the angel legions Circle round Thy throne. GODFREY THRING, 1862.

327

Kings shall fall down before Him,
And gold and incense bring;
All nations shall adore Him;

His praise all people sing;
For He shall have dominion
O'er river, sea, and shore,
Far as the eagle's pinion,

Or dove's light wing can soar.
For Him shall prayer unceasing
And daily vows ascend;
His kingdom still increasing,
A kingdom without end.
The heavenly dew shall nourish

A seed in weakness sown,
Whose fruit shall spread and flourish,
And shake like Lebanon.
O'er every foe victorious,

He on His throne shall rest;
From age to age more glorious,
All-blessing and all-blessed.
The tide of time shall never

His covenant remove;
His name shall stand for ever;
That name to us is Love!

JAMES MONTGOMERY, 1822.

Tune-"Spanish Hymn"-No. 60. Hasten, Lord! the glorious time When beneath Messiah's sway, Every nation, every clime,

Shall the Gospel's call obey.

78. D.

Mightiest kings His power shall own, Heathen tribes His name adore; Satan and His host o'erthrown,

Bound in chains, shall hurt no more. Then shall wars and tumult cease,

Then be banished grief and pain; Righteousness and joy and peace

Undisturbed shall ever reign.

Bless we, then, our gracious Lord,
Ever praise His glorious name;
All His mighty acts record,
All His wondrous love proclaim.
HARRIET AUBER, 1829.

Tune-"Work."

Work, for the night is coming,

Work through the morning hours;

Work, while the dew

sparkling,
Work 'mid springing flowers;
Work, when the day grows brighter,
Work in the glowing sun;
Work, for the night is coming,
When man's work is done.
Work, for the night is coming,

Work through the sunny noon;
Fill brightest hours with labor,
Rest comes sure and soon:
Give every flying minute

Something to keep in store;
Work, for the night is coming,

When man works no more.
