173 48 He is, so are we in this world. . .

Unto you therefore which believe He 174

is precious.- 1 PET. ii. 7. mf 1

ORD Jesus, are we one with Thee ?

ESUS, the very
O height, 0 depth of love !
Thou one with us upon the tree,
We one with Thee above !

But sweeter far Thy face to see,

And in Thy presence rest. p 2 Such was Thy grace that for our sake

Thou didst from heaven come down, 2 Nor voice can sing, nor heart can frame,
With us of flesh and blood partake,

Nor can the memory find
In all our misery one.

A sweeter sound than Thy blest name, 3 Our sins, our guilt, in love Divine

O Saviour of mankind.
Confessed and borne by Thee;
The gall, the curse, the wrath were Thine, 3 0 Hope of every contrite heart,
To set Thy members free.

O Joy of all the meek, f 4 Ascended now, in glory bright,

To those who fall, how kind Thou art !
Still one with us Thou art ;
Nor life nor death, nor depth nor height,

How good to those who seek ! Thy saints and Thee can part. cr 4 But what to those who find ? Ah, this mj 5 0 teach us, Lord, to know and own

Nor tongue nor pen can show;
This wondrous mystery,

The love of Jesus, what it is,
That Thou with us art truly one

None but His loved ones know.
And we are one with Thee.
f 6 Soon, soon shall come that glorious day

| 5 Jesus, our only joy be Thou,
When, seated on Thy throne,

As Thou our prize wilt be;
Thou shalt to wondering worlds display Jesus, be Thou our glory now,
That Thou with us art one.

And through eternity.
James G. Deck.

Bernard of Clairvaux, tr. E.

The brightness of His glory ... upholding all things.-HEB, I. 3.

f1 MC

IGHTY God, while angels bless Thee,

May a mortal sing 'Thy name :
Lord of men as well as angels,

Thou art every creature's theme !
2 Lord of every land and nation,

Ancient of eternal days,
Sounded throngh the wide creation

Be Thy just and lawful praise.
mf 3 For the grandeur of Thy nature,

Grand beyond a seraph's thought ;
For created works of power,

Works with skill and kindness wrought:
mf 4 For Thy providence, that governs

Through Thine empire's wide domain,
Wings an angel, guides a sparrow;

Blessed be Thy geutle reign.
5 But Thy rich, Thy free redemption

Dark through brightness all along!
Thought is poor, and poor expression ;

Who dare sing that awful song ?
mf 6 Brightness of the Father's glory,

Shall Thy praise unuttered lie !
Fly, my tongue, such guilty silence

Sing the Lord who came to die
f 7 From the highest throne in

To the cross of deepen
All to ransom guilty

Flow, my praise
8 Go, return, imma

Leave Tby
Thence returi

Daily shall He be praised.-Ps. Ixxii. 15.
THEN morning gilds the skies, 4 When evil thoughts molest,
My heart awaking cries,

With this I shield my breast,
May Jesus Christ be praised !

May Jesus Christ be praised !
Alike at work and prayer

The powers of darkness fear,
To Jesus I repair :

When this sweet chant they hear,
May Jesus Christ be praised !

May Jesus Christ be praised !
2 To Thee, my God above,

p 5 When sleep her balm denies,
I cry with glowing love,

My silent spirit sighs,
May Jesus Christ be praised !

May Jesus Christ be praised !
The fairest graces spring

The night becomes as day,
In hearts that ever sing,

When from the heart we say,
May Jesus Christ be praised !

May Jesus Christ be praised | mf 3 Does sadness fill my mind ?

f 6 Be this, wbile life is mine,
A solace here I find,

My canticle divine,
May Jesus Christ be praised 1

May Jesus Christ be praised !
Or fades my earthly bliss ?

Be this the eternal song
My comfort still is this,

Through all the ages on,
May Jesus Christ be praised !

May Jesus Christ be praised !

From the German, tr. E. Caswall.
