2 Pris'ners of hope, in gloom
And silence, left to die!
Your portals open fly:
It is the year of jubilee.
For debts to justice due,
He gave himself for you:
It is the year of jubilee.
O'er earth and ocean, hear
The Lord's accepted year:

From all below and all above;
In songs as lasting as his love,

To him who rules the skies.
The day renews the sound ;-

And yet my moments run.
Whilst I enjoy the light;
And bring a peaceful night.
HYMN 583, L. M. 583
I safely passed the silent night; mf Again I see the breaking shade,
I drink again the morning light.
Once more, with awe, rejoice to be;
And springs, my guardian God! to thee. 3 Oh! guide me through the various maze,
My doubtful feet may this day tread; And spread thy shield's protecting blaze,
Where dangers press around my head.
