1ING to the Lord, our might,
2 This is His holy house,
When He accepts the humblest vows
3 The Sabbath to our sires
The Church her Sabbaths still requires
4 We still, like them of old,
And God is still as near His fold,
5 Then let us open wide
And He that Israel then supplied,

1 rpO Thy temple I repair:
A. Lord, I love to worship there,
2 Thou through Him art reconciled,
3 While Thy glorious name is sung,
4 While the prayers of saints ascend,
5 While Thy ministers proclaim
Jesus speaking from the throne.
6 From Thy house when I return,
"I have walked with God to-day."

1 T)LEST Creator of the light,
D Making day with radiance bright,
2 Shade of eve with morning ray
3 May we ne'er, by guilt deprest,
4 Rather may we heavenward rise
5 Holy Father, hear our cry
Through Thy Son, our Lord most High,

3 Cold our services have been,
4 While this path of life we tread,

in token that thou shalt not fear
Christ crucified to own,
2 In token that thou shalt not fear
Christ's conflict to maintain,

1 QAVIOUR, who Thy flock art feeding J5 With the shepherd's kindest care, All the feeble gently leading,
While the lambs Thy bosom share;
2 Now, these little ones receiving,
Fold them in Thy gracious arm;
3 Never, from Thy pasture roving,
Let them be the lion's prey;
4 Then, within Thy fold eternal,
34 8. 8. 8. 8. 8. 8.
1 TTtATHER, Thy children pray to Thee; X A boon of love Divine we seek: Brought to Thine arms in infancy,
Ere hearts could feel or tongues could speak, Thy children pray for grace, that they May come themselves to Thee this day.
2 Lord, hear another suppliant cry!
When we draw near Christ's table spread, And, tokens of His agony,
The wine partake, and broken bread, Bless Thou, oh bless, Thy children's prayer, That they may find their Saviour there!
3 And oh, yet hear our prayer again!
Thy children ask one blessing more:
Life, death, and time itself are o'er,
