And join the full chorus that gladdens the skies.

[blocks in formation]

A charge to keep I have,
Ah, how shall fallen man,
Alas, what hourly dangers rise !
All glorious God, what hymns of praise,
Almighty Father! bless the word,
Almighty Lord! before thy throne,
Although the vine its fruits deny,
And are we now brought near to God,
And wilt thou, O eternal God,
And will the Judge descend?
Another six days' work is done,
Approach, my soul, the mercy-seat,
Arise, my soul! with rapture rise!
As panting in the sultry beam,
As when the weary trav'ller gains,
As o'er the past my memory strays,
As the sweet flow'r that scents the morn,
Awake, my soul, and with the sun,
Awake, my soul, stretch every nerve,
Awake, ye saints, awake,
Before Jehovah's awful throne
Begin, my soul, th’ exalted lay,
Be joyful in God, all ye lands of the earth,
Be still, my heart! these anxious cares,
Bless'd be thou, the God of Israel,
Bless'd is the man whose soft'ning heart
Bless'd is the tie that binds
Behold the Saviour of mankind
