2 Haste thee on from grace to glory, Armed with faith,
and winged with prayer; Heaven's eternal day's before thee,
God's own hand shall guide thee there:
Soon shall pass thy pilgrim days;
Faith to sight, and prayer to praise.
Thy heavenly grace impart,
Thy law upon my heart.
Let nought my purpose move;
2 Long as my trials last,
Long as the cross I bear,
Of everlasting peace,
Where sin and sorrow cease.
Pass like clouds that sweep the sky;
2 From the glorious heavens above her,
She has shed her beams abroad,
May become the sons of God.
Close their eyes and call it night;
But they cannot quench her light!
All their glories cease to be;
And from bondage sets them free,
From the fury of her foe,
Sits enthroned o'er all below.

Nor at eve withhold thy hand;
Or if both alike shall stand,
2 Sow it 'mid the haunts of vice
Scenes of infamy and crime;
Burst, as in the northern clime
3 Sow it with unsparing hand;
'T is the kingdom's precious seed,
And his grace shall crown the deed;
J. G Adaus.
In our high places, Lord!
We mourn with one accord;
Heed thou the prayer, accept the vow.
Of thine afflictive love,
Thy justice to approve.
May we not doubt thy guardian grace.
A chosen race for thee;
The true home of the free;

He sits in kingly state ;
In humble silence wait.
2 True prayer is not th' imposing sound
That clamorous lips repeat;
That clasps Jehovah's feet.
Forever bless his name;
And glory given
