3 And oft as here we gather,

And hearts in worship blend,
May truth reveal its power,

And fervent prayer ascend;
Here may the busy toiler

Rise to the things above,
The young, the old, be strengthened,

And all men learn Thy love, 4 And as the years

roll

over,
And strong affections twine,
And tender memories gather

About this sacred shrine,
May this its chief distinction,

Its glory, ever be,
That multitudes within it

Have found their way to Thee,
Frederic W. Goadby, 1879, v. 2, line 1, alt.

N our day of thanksgiving one psalm let us offer

For the saints who before us have found their reward;
When the shadow of death fell upon them, we sorrowed,

But now we rejoice that they rest in the Lord.

2 In the morning of life, and at noon, and at even,

He called them away from our worship below;
But not till His mercy and tender compassion

Had girt them with grace for the way they should go.
3 These stones that have echoed their praises are holy,

And dear is the ground where their feet have once trod;
Yet here they confessed they were strangers and pilgrims,

And still they were seeking the city of God.

4 Sing praise, then, for all who here sought and here found Him,

Whose journey is ended, whose perils are past;
They believed in the Light; and its glory is round them,
Where the clouds of earth's sorrow are lifted at last.

William H. Draper, 1894, 1910

GOD

3 God be with you till we meet again,

When life's perils thick confound you, Put His arms unfailing round you,

God be with you till we meet again.

1 MOD be with you till we meet again,

By His counsels guide, uphold you,
With His sheep securely fold you,
God be with you till we meet again.

Till we meet, till we meet,
Till we meet at Jesus' feet;

Till we meet, till we meet,
God be with you till we meet again.

2 God be with you till we meet again,

Neath His wings protecting hide you, Daily manna still divide you,

God be with you till we meet again!

+ God be with you till we meet again,

Keep love's banner floating o'er you,
Smite death's threatening wave before you,
God be with you till we meet again.

Till we meet, till we meet,
Till we meet at Jesus' feet;

Till we meet, till we meet,
God be with you till we meet again.

Jeremiah E. Rankin, 1882

1 HOLY night! peaceful night!

All is dark, save the light
Yonder where they sweet vigils keep
O'er the Babe who in silent sleep

Rests in heavenly peace,

Rests in heavenly peace.
2 Holy night! peaceful night!

Only for shepherds' sight
Came blest visions of angel throngs,
With their loud alleluia songs,

Saying, Christ is come,

Saying, Christ is come.
3 Holy night! peaceful night!

Child of heaven, ( how bright
Thou didst smile on us when Thou wast born!
Blest indeed was that happy morn;

Full of heavenly joy,
Full of heavenly joy.

Joseph Mohr, 1818, tr. Jane M. Campbell, 1863
