The united choirs of angels sing;
To Him, enthroned above all height,
Heaven's host their noblest praises

Disdain not, Lord, our meaner song,
Who praise Thee with a stammering

tongue. 3 Gladly the toys of earth we leave,Wealth, pleasure, fame--for Thee alone, To Thee our will, soul, flesh, we give; O take, O seal them for Thine own. Thou art the God, Thou art the Lord:

Be Thou by all Thy works adored. 4 Being of beings, may our praise

Thy courts with grateful fragrance fin;

Still hear and do Thy sovereign will;
To Thee may all our thoughts arise,
As ceaseless holy sacrifice.

ORD, we come before Thee now,
( do not our suit disdain;
Shall we seek Thee, Lord, in vain?

In compassion now descend;
Fill our hearts with Thy rich grace,
Tune our lips to sing Thy praise.

3 In Thine own appointed way,

Vow we seek Thee, here we stay;
Lord, from hence we would not go,

Till a blessing Thou bestow.

That may joy and peace afford;
Let Thy Spirit now impart

Full salvation to each heart.

Thee a God supremely kind;
Heal the sick, the captive free;
Let us all rejoice in Thee.

807 I will pay my vows unto the Lord.


. ,
1 THAT shall I render to my God

For all His kindness shown?
My feet shall visit Thine abode,

My songs address Thy throne.
2 Among the saints that fill Thy house

My offerings shall be paid; There shall my zeal perform the vows

My soul in anguish made.
3 How much is mercy Thy delight,

Tliou ever-blessed God !
How dear Thy servants in Thy sight!

How precious is their blood!
4 How happy all Thy servants are!

How great Thy grace to me!
My life which Thou hast made Thy care
Lord, I devote to Thee.

Prepare us receive ;
Now let Thy voice engage our ear,
And faith be mixed with what we hear,
[Thus, Lord, Thy waiting servants bless,

And crown Thy gospel with success.] 2 Distraeting thoughts and cares remove,

And fix our hearts and hopes above;
With food divine may we be fed,
And satisfied with living bread.

With sovereign power and energy ;
And may we in Thy faith and fear,

Reduce to practice what we hear. 4 Father, in us Thy Son reveal,

Teach us to know and do Thy will:
Thy saving power and love display ;
And guide us to the realms of day.

L.M. 809 Wilt Thou not revive us again?

Ps. 85, 6. 10

THOU that hearest! let our prayer

Like incense come before Thy face; Behold our Intercessor there,

The pledge and surety of Thy grace. 2 Amidst us, Lord, Thy work revive;

Let Thine almighty power be known;
O bid these dying sinners live,

The stubborn, bow before Thy throne! 3 Deep fix conviction, like a dart

In the galled conscience, ne'er to move Till Thou hast won the rebel's heart,

Surrendered all to grief and love. 4 Conduct the doubtful to Thy feet,

And make the trembling soul rejoice;
Let crowds around Thy table sit,
And bless Thy name with cheerful voice.

78. 810 That they might be saved.— Rom.

NAVED ourselves by Jesus' blood,

Let us now draw nigh to God:
Many round us blindly stray ;
Moved with pity, let us pray-
Pray that they who now are blind

Soon the way of truth may find. 2 Lord, awaken all around,

Let them know the joyful sound;
Slaves to Satan heretofore,
Let them now be slaves no more:
Lord, we turn our eyes to Thee,

Set the captive sinner free!
3 Glorious things of Thee are told,

What Thine arm has wrought of old;

Thousands once its power confest,
O for seasons like the past!
Lord, revive the former days-
Thine the power and Thine the praise.

'N God's own house pronounce His To heaven your joy and wonder raise,

For there His glory dwells. 2 Let all your sacred passions move,

While you rehearse His deeds; But the great work of saving love

Your highest praise exceeds.
3 All that have motion, life, and breath,

Proclaim your Maker þlest,
Yet, when my voice expires in death,
My soul shall praise Him best.

812 My speech sħail distil as the dew.-

Deut. 32, 2.
| As the dew from heaven distilling,

Gently on
And revives it, thus fulfilling

What Thy providence intends;
Let Thy doctrine, Lord! so gracious,

Thus descending from above, Blest by Thee, prove efficacious

To fulfil Thy work of love. 2 Lord ! behold Thy congregation,

Precious promises fulfil,
From Thy holy habitation

Let the dew of life distil:
Let our cry come up before Thee,

Sweetest influence shed around;
So Thy people shall adore Thee,
And confess the joyful sound.

For the gospel's joyful sound;
May the fruits of Thy salvation
In our hearts and lives abound:

May Thy presence
With us evermore be found !
3 So, whene'er the signal's given

Ús from earth to call away;
Borne on angel's wings to heaven,
Glad the summons to obey,

We shall surely
Rise to reign in endless day!,
