3 For should we fail proclaiming

Our great Redeemer's praise, The stones, our silence shaming,

Might well Hosanna raise, But shall we only render

The tribute of our words? No; while our hearts are tender, They, too, shall be the Lord's.

J. King, 1830

2 Holy Savior, who in meekness

Didst vouchsafe a child to be, Guide their steps and help their weak

ness, Bless and make them like to Thee; Bear Thylambs, when they are weary,

In Thine arms, and at Thy breast; Through life's desert, dry and dreary,

Bring them to Thy heavenly rest.

3 Spread Thy golden pinions o'er them,

Holy Spirit, from above, Guide them, lead them, go before

them, Give them peace, and joy, and love; Thy true temples, Holy Spirit,

May they with Thy glory shine,
And immortal bliss inherit,
And forevermore be Thine.

3 I would not live alway; no, welcome the tomb:

Since Jesus hath lain there, I dread not its gloom;
There sweet be my rest, till He bid me arise
To hail Him in triumph descending the skies.

4 Who, who would live alway, away from his God;

Away from yon heaven, that blissful abode,
Where the rivers of pleasure flow o'er the bright plains,
And the noontide of glory eternally reigns?

5 Where the saints of all ages in harmony meet,

Their Savior and brethren transported to greet,
While the anthems of rapture unceasingly roll,
And the smile of the Lord is the feast of the soul.

W. A. Muhlenberg, 1826

To Thee, O Lord, I yield my spir-it, Who break’st in love this mortal chain;
