o may

it grow in hum - ble hearts, And right-eous fruits a-bound. A - MEN.

But may it, in converted minds,

Produce the fruits of joy.

2 Let not the foe of Christ and man

This holy seed remove,
But give it root in praying souls

To bring forth fruits of love.

3 Let not the world's deceitful cares

The rising plant destroy,

4 Let not Thy word, so kindly sent

To raise us to Thy throne,
Return to Thee, and sadly tell
That we reject Thy Son.

Rev. John Cawood, 1816

(See also DISMISSAL, No. 534) 2 Thanks we give and adoration 3 So that when Thy love shall call us, For Thy gospel's joyful sound:

Saviour, from the world away,
May the fruits of Thy salvation Let no fear of death appal us,
In our hearts and lives abound: Glad Thy summons to obey:
Ever faithful

May we ever
To the truth may we be found; Reign with Thee in endless day.

Anon. 1773 (ascribed to Rev. John Fawcett): verse 1, line 6, alt.; verse 3 recast by Rev. G. Thring 81 BEATRICE 8.7.8.7.

Copyright, 1895, by The Trustees of The Presbyterian Board of Publication and Sabbath-School Work 2 Part in peace: wïth deep thanksgiving, 3 Part in peace: such are the praises Rendering, as we homeward tread,

God our Maker loveth best; Gracious service to the living,

Such the worship that upraises Tranquil memory to the dead.

Human hearts to heavenly rest.

Mrs. Sarah F. Adams, 1841

2 Holy, Holy, Holy! All the saints adore Thee,
Casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;
Cherubim and seraphim falling down before Thee,

Who wert, and art, and evermore shalt be.
3 Holy, Holy, Holy! Though the darkness hide Thee,
Though the eye of sinful man Thy glory may not see,
Only Thou art holy; there is none beside Thee

Perfect in power, in love, and purity.
4 Holy, Holy, Holy! Lord God Almighty!
All Thy works shall praise Thy Name, in earth and sky and sea;
Holy, Holy, Holy! Merciful and Mighty!
God in Three Persons, blessèd Trinity!

Bishop Reginald Heber, publ. 1826

2 O Holy Father, who hast led Thy children

In all the ages, with the fire and cloud,
Through seas dry-shod, through weary wastes bewildering;

To Thee, in reverent love, our hearts are bowed.
3 O Holy Jesus, Prince of Peace and Saviour,

To Thee we owe the peace that still prevails,
Stilling the rude wills of men's wild behavior,

And calming passion's fierce and stormy gales.
4 O Holy Ghost, the Lord and the Life-giver,

Thine is the quickening power that gives increase;
From Thee have flowed, as from a pleasant river,

Our plenty, wealth, prosperity and peace.
5 O Triune God, with heart and voice adoring,

Praise we the goodness that doth crown our days;
Pray we that Thou wilt hear us, still imploring
Thy love and favor, kept to us always.

Bishop William C. Doane, 1886

All the earth doth wor-ship Thee; We a-midst the throng would be.

(See also HORTON, No. 570) 2 All the holy angels cry,

5 Martyrs, in a noble host, “Hail, thrice Holy, God Most High!” Of Thy cross are heard to boast; Lord of all the heavenly powers,

Since so bright the crown they wear, Be the same loud anthem ours.

Early we Thy cross would bear. 3 Glorified apostles raise

6 All Thy Church in heaven and earth, Night and day continual praise;

Jesus, hail Thy spotless birth, Hast Thou not a mission too

Own the God who all has made, For Thy children here to do?

And the Spirit's soothing aid. 4 With Thy prophets' goodly line 7 Offspring of a Virgin's womb, We in mystic bond combine;

Slain, and Victor o'er the tomb, For Thou hast to babes revealed

Seated on the judgment-throne, Things that to the wise were sealed. Number us among Thine own.

Anon. (Latin, 5th Century). Trans. by Rev. James E. Millard, 1848
