Come, ye who love the Lord !
And let your joys be known :
And thus surround his throne.
The sorrows of the mind - Be banished from this place! Religion never was designed
To make your pleasures less.
God, your eternal Friend,
No present good denies ;
Will call you to the skies.
There shall you see his face,”
From faith and hope may grow.
Then let our sorrows cease,
And every tear be dry; We're travelling through the paths of peace To fairer worlds on high.

1 ETERNAL source of life and thought!
Be all beneath thyself forgot,
2 O may we live before thy face,
The willing subjects of thy grace;
1 Far from mortal cares retreating,
Sordid hopes and fond desires, . Here, our willing footsteps meeting, :
Every heart to heaven aspires, From the fount of glory beaming,
Light celestial cheers our eyes, Mercy from above proclaiming
Peace and pardon from the skies.
2 Who may share this great salvation !
Every pure and humble mind; Every kindred, tongue and nation,
From the dross of guilt refined :
Blessings all around bestowing,
God withholds his care from none; Grace and mercy ever flowing
From the fountain of his throne.
3 Every stain of guilt abhorring,
Firm and bold in virtue's cause,
Faithful subjects to thy laws,
Bless us with thy wondrous love;

Thy glorious name be hallowed still;

Forgive the sins which we forsake:
And let us in thy kindness share, “As fellow-men of our's partake. 3 Evils beset ys every hour;
Thy kind protection we implore:

1 FATHER in heaven! thy sacred name
In hallowed strains be sung;
Thy praise fill every tongue.
2 By happy spirits round thy throne,
As thy commands are done;
By all beneath the sun.
3 Our numerous wants are known to thee,
Who canst alone supply;
Nor other good deny!
4 Forgive our sins, as we forgive
The wrongs that others do ; Nor let temptations press around, · Lest we those sins renew.
5 Thou art our safety and defence,
When dangers threatening stand;
With thy almighty hand!
6 Thy sceptre all creation sways;
Thy power knows no control;
