So shall his presence bless our souls,
And shed a joyful light;
The sorrows of the night.
LOVE divine, all love excelling,
Joy of heaven, to earth come down ;
All thy faithful mercies crown:
Pure unbounded love Thou art;
Enter every waiting heart.
Come, Almighty to deliver,
Let us all thy grace receive;
Never more thy temples leave :
Serve Thee, as thy hosts above ;
Glory in thy perfect love.
Finish, then, thy great salvation,
Pure and spotless may we be ;
Perfectly restor’d in Thee :
Till in heaven we take our place,
Lost in wonder, love, and praise.
HOW long, O Lord our Saviour',
Wilt Thou remain away?
Of thy so long delay;
When, brighter far than morn,
Shall on thy people dawn ?
How long, O heavenly Bridegroom,
How long wilt Thou delay?
That Thou dost absent stay :
And calling hath forgot ;
Where Thou, her Lord, art not.
O wake thy slumb'ring virgins,
Send forth the solemn cry;
* The Bridegroom draweth nigh :"
Our loins well-girded be;
With joy thy face to see.
HOSANNA to the living Lord !
O Saviour, with protecting care
HARK! the song of jubilee,
Loud as mighty thunder's roar,
When it breaks upon the shore :
God omnipotent shall reign;
Echo round the earth and main.
Ruling with unbounded sway;
Yonder heavens have past away.
Man's last enemy shall fall :
God in Christ, is all in all.
When shrivelling like a parched scroll,
flaming heavens together roll ; hen louder yet, and yet more dread, tells the high trump that wakes the dead. ! on that day, that wrathful day, lien man to judgment wakes from clay, · Thou, O Christ! the sinner's stay, rough heaven and earth shall pass away.

KEAT God, what do I see and hear!
Prepare, my soul, to meet Him.
At the last trumpet's sounding,
With joy his throne surrounding ;
i l'eat God, to Thee our prayers we pour,
Thy wondrous love extending;
And thus prepare to meet Him.
