1. An off'ring at the shrine of power, Our hands shall never bring;

A garland on the car of pomp, Our hands shall never fling; 2. Praise to the good, the pure, the great, Who made us what we are; Who lit the flame which yet shall glow With radience brighter far!

Applauding in the conqueror's path Our sounding voices ne'er shall be;

Glo - ry to them o'er all the earth, And glo-ry in all ages be,

But we have hearts to honor those Who bade the world go free!
Who burst the captive's galling chain, And bade the world go free!

SUNDAY.
1. T'he Sunday is here!

It cometh sent to us from heaven!
It stilleth the turmoil of all earthly care.
1t stands by the wayside.
It preaches the blessings

Which God us doth give.
2. The Sunday is here!

() welcome its coming with gladness!
Like rain on the mown field, it cooleth our care.
We sing of his mercies,
We pray for his blessing,

Who leadeth us on.
3. The Sunday is here!

It calleth to peace and to quiet;
We rest by the wayside, we cease from our toil.
When cometh the morrow
Of labor and duty,
The Lord is our help.

1. The light pours down from heaven, And en-ters where it may;

So let the mind's true sun-shine Be spread o'er earth as free, 2. The soul can shed a glo ry On ev - 'ry work well done; D. c. Then let each hu-man spir - it En-joy the vis-ion bright;

Fine.

The eyes of all earth's children Are cheered with one bright day.
And fill men's wait-ing spir - its As wa - ters fill the sea.

As e - ven things most low-ly Are ra-diant in the sun.
The truth which comes from heaven Shall spread like hear'n's own light.
